The instrumentation of the band is typical of a jazz quintet: saxophones and guitar, bass, drums and drums. However, the group tries to avoid the clich├ęs of modern jazz and instead seeks out new forms and structures. The *aerie is alive so expect the unexpected. There are crazy ights and elegant sails. They also hunt diligently and always check for limits. AERIE is a pioneer in modern jazz. They combine written material with improvisation to create exciting jazz. The structures are expanded and melted down to be reassembled in a new way. Live, AERIE continues their appeal to audiences by changing the form of their music. *nest of an eagle or large bird of prey from http://aerie-band.com
