Artist Biography by

Based out of New York, the jazz trio Sephardic Tinge consists of downtown pianist Anthony Coleman, bassist Ben Street, and drummer Michael Sarin. Presumably a continuation of Coleman's project documented in the 1995 album with Greg Cohen and Joey Baron entitled Sephardic Tinge, this piano trio draws equally from the jazz tradition and the Sephardic tradition -- the Jewish musical tradition that originated around the Mediterranean basin, where Jews expelled from Middle Ages Spain settled. There's a little Latin rhythm thrown in Sephardic Tinge's music as well.
