Biography

This name refers to three groups, a Brooklyn jazz/noise band, a reggae/jam band, and to a Broadway musical.

1.
Brooklyn quartet Little Women formed two years ago to create music that blurs the line between structure and spontaneity. The group’s sound distilled from a broad range of influences that stretch from classic Chicago free jazz thru pop music, punk rock, math metal, and harsh noise.

Little Women never stop pushing into new sonic territory: splitting overtones to create ghost notes, violently disassembling their instruments onstage, and attacking written and improvised material with equal ferocity. During performances band members often experience side-effects more commonly associated with prescription drugs such as nausea, dizziness, and internal bleeding.
Saxophonists Travis Laplante and Darius Jones breathe together as one multi-tongued exquisite beast reveling in higher harmonics, splitting overtones to create ghost notes. Together with guitarist Andrew Smiley and drummer Jason Nazary, they create intricate yet whiplash-bestowing riffs which morph on a dime into ever-exploratory sub-groupings. There are also moments of quiet ringing-tone reflection on what has been wrought.

2.
Little Women was a reggae / rock jamband that ruled the Rocky Mountain club circuit between
the mid-1980s and 1993. The band was formed in June of 1982 by Jerry Joseph (singer /
songwriter / guitarist), Bradley Keith Rosen (drums), Stephen Derby (bass and vocals), and Eric
