Skrontch Music is an 11-piece large ensemble dedicated to new music that explores the histories of the formation of jazz in New Orleans through contemporary composition and collective improvisation. Featuring a diverse cross-section of New Orleans' creative music scene, the debut Skrontch Music recording was released to critical acclaim on New Orleans' Sinking City Records in October 2019.
The album was researched and composed during a 2016 artist residency at A Studio In The Woods and incorporates elements of sound collage and text from primary source documents to address the intertwined lineages of the formation of New Orleans jazz and anti-Jim Crow activism. The recording was generously supported by grants from the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation and the Puffin Foundation.
In March 2020, Skrontch Music embarked on its debut tour, playing shows across the Deep South, including at the Center for the Study of the South at the University of Mississippi. The tour was funded by an inaugural Jazz Road touring grant from South Arts.
