About the featured artists:
Oxygen Ensemble is a collective of musicians led by New York bassist Thomas Bell. The group takes an improvised collective composition' approach to its music which provides a relentless groove heavily steeped in the traditions of Funk & Free-Jazz, with tinges of Drum n Bass, Hip-Hop, & the experimantal Avant-Garde. The Ensemble's improvisations are reminiscent of Miles Davis' early 70's groups with a modern and often futuristic feel. The music is based on rhythm, spontaneous composition and group improvisation which allows exploration of all styles of music and creates a captivating sound that pushes the envelope of today's music.
