Skerik- saxophone, electronics Jamie Saft- keyboards Stu Mahan- bass Gary Gemmiti- drums
Skerik and Jamie Saft first met in the mid 90’s at the Verona, Italy Jazz Festival at a dinner with Ornette Coleman. Many years of collaborations followed including with The Beta Popes and Bobby Previte. Both artists lead bands like Garage a Trois, New Zion Trio, and Critters Buggin’. Recent collaborations include Iggy Pop, Bad Brains, The Beastie Boys, The B-52’s, Les Claypool, Mad Season, The Original Meters, George Porter Jr., Rustic Overtones, London Souls, Eric Krasno, Charlie Hunter, and Mighty Sam McClain. Listeners can expect explorations veering towards Roots Reggae, Spiritual Jazz, and Dark Arts filtered through a Dub sonics lens.
SWAMI LATEPLATE, the experimental jazz duo formed by New York performers Bobby Previte on drums and Jamie Saft on piano and bass, will reissue their seminal 2012 album ‘Doom Jazz’ on various vinyl formats and CD this June 25th via Subsound Records.
Using doom as a template, Swami Lateplate crafts a set of songs that creeps along powerfully. The themes are simple, generally carried by subdued bass lines and ornamented by the piano like salt on a glacier. Each moment is its own event, each note frozen in amber. An album that will satisfy Saft and Previte’s audiences, as well as fans of the fringes of metal.
