Blue Eternity -
Trumpeter Jeff Oster, bassist Michael Manring, and electric slide guitarist Carl Weingarten.
Together, they create live free jazz improv music that is free flowing, majestic and unique. Blending sounds reminiscent of Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius and Ry Cooder - Oster, Manring and Weingarten break new ground in live loop based space and progressive jazz.
Michael Manring was a founder of the group Montreux, recorded many solo albums and was the house bassist for Windham Hill Records in the 1980s and ’90s. Carl Weingarten first came to renown with the progressive rock group, Delay Tactics before striking out from St. Louis to San Francisco where he immersed himself in the dobro, slide guitar and world music with a few other stops in between.
Jeff Oster is the award winning trumpet/flugelhorn artist that makes albums that hover between jazz and ambient music
This is their debut EP - BLUE ETERNITY - (live in Philadelphia 2011).
