Bright Moments Free Event: Daily Page Brennan Connors & Stray Passage has been pushing boundaries in jazz and improvised music in Madison for nearly a decade; stunning, delighting, enchanting, and sometimes shocking audiences with their focused musical communication and wide-ranging sonic emotional impact. The breadth of the group's palate ranges from austere minimalism to fery high energy music, all while maintaining a sense of narrative organization and compelling ensemble interplay throughout performances. The leader of the trio, saxophonist Brennan Connors, also plays with various experimental and world music groups in Madison including Samba Novistas, the Madison Choro Ensemble, and AMOEBAGEDDON. In addition, Brennan has worked on a regular basis with Hanah Jon Taylor as well as Madison institutions James Earl Tate and the late Charlie Brooks. Geof Brady plays drums and percussion for Stray Passage laying down strong grooves and textures. He is also adept on the theremin and on his homemade electronic sound devices. Geof plays with a vast number of area bands and musicians. Some highlights include Yid Vicious (for which he composed a musical score for the 1920 flm The Golem), Major Vistas, Hurt Albert, and is a founding member of the Sockrates Carnival of Sock Puppet Morals and Logic. Brian Grimm rounds out the trio playing cello and electric bass while utilizing ample efects to enhance the group's creative approach to sound and feel. He works as a composer, producer, and educator in addition to being an active performer. His other current bands include the Five Points Jazz Collective and Lovely Socialite. The band's frst album, entitled Emergence, was released in 2017 on the Italian label Setola di Maiale. It made Tone Madison Top 20 Madison records of 2017.
