The Outnumbered @ The Lilypad
November 5th, 8:00
"a rambunctious combo featuring a stellar cast of Boston improvisers"
-Andrew Gilbert, The Boston Globe
"lightning was striking all evening long" - Stu Vandermark, Boston Jazz Scene
A collective ensemble, The Outnumbered began in 2008 when California saxophonist and composer Jason Robinson partnered with Boston-based creative music stalwarts Charlie Kohlhase, Josh Rosen, and Curt Newton. Shortly after, the remarkable bassist Bruno Raberg joined the group. Focused on developing and performing original music, the Outnumbered seamlessly moves between beautiful melodies, dissonant abstraction, heavy grooves, and freer rhythmic soundscapes. Their music is robust, beautiful, and focused.

"With the soul of an improv jam session, these two are one of the tastiest, new treats to come along in a while. Fine stuff that adults will love hearing when they are in an off-the-clock mode. Check it out." Chris Spector, Midwest Record
"finishing each other’s thoughts and phrases as these tunes wend their way from churchy, soul-jazz to more abstract precincts. Rosen and Strickland are more than just in sync - they often sound like a single musician playing two instruments." -Kevin R. Convey, Boston Herald
