Chris-Speed-1
Sunday night at Cornish,  Earshot Jazz Festival presented Chris Speed, Dave King & Chris Tordini Trio / Bad Luck.
Seasoned innovators Chris Speed (sax and clarinet), Dave King (drums, The Bad Plus) and Chris Tordini (bass, Jean-Michel Pilc Trio) joined forces for a set of formidable improvising.

Brooklynite Chris Speed grew up in the Seattle area. He studied at the New England Conservatory, then moved to New York to work with Tim Berne’s Bloodcount. In the nineties, Speed and ilk formed pioneering bands – Alas No Axis, Claudia Quintet; his own, Human Feel, yeah NO, and, now, Endangered Blood. DownBeat magazine named Speed the Rising Star Clarinetist for 2004, 2005 and 2006. In April 2006, he launched Skirl Records.
