ULTRA WORLD X-TET performs an exotic,
soulful and trippy fusion of East and West for the 21st Century. The band includes
Saxophone and Bamboo Flutes, Bass, Percussion, Guzheng (Chinese Zither) and Electric
Guitar. Based in San Francisco, the group’s brand of high energy Psychedelic
World Jazz casts an electrifying spell.
The band originated and developed their sound working a regular gig at a small
jazz club in downtown San Francisco. Word of mouth from this gig led to other
opportunities, including concerts at Herbst Theater, performances at S.F. City
Hall, events for the S.F. Symphony, and other high profile performances. We
have just released our first CD, MOON AND LEGEND which is starting to receive
some airplay on Independent and College FM. The X-tet's
performances are a colorful blend of Jazz, Chinese, Psychedelic, Funk, Blues,
Latin, Middle Eastern and Ambient textures. This is a fresh, new San Francisco
sound. Check it out!
The group is available with 4-8 musicians.
Instrumentation available: Saxophone and Bamboo Flutes, Bass, Drums and Percussion,
Guzheng (Chinese Zither) Electric Guitar, Pipa (Chinese Lute), Latin Percussion.
