Tone Madison interview with Scott Gordon:
"Brennan Connors & Stray Passage embrace the absence of formula"
bit.ly/2yGGFe9

From Isthmus:
"For those who seek to shake themselves out of musical complacency, there’s Stray Passage, an improvisational jazz trio that explodes boundaries, playing off the energy in the room and audience. The group, led by saxophonist Brennan Connors, includes master percussionist Geoff Brady and Brian Grimm on bowing cello, contra-cello and electric bass. The album they’re releasing on an Italian label was recorded live by Steve Gotcher at Audio for the Arts."
~ Isthmus Daily Page

Tone Madison Top 20 Madison Records of 2017:
www.tonemadison.com/articles/the-top-20-madison-records-of-2017
"After several years of performing regularly in Madison, saxophonist Brennan Connors multi-stringed-instrumentalist Brian Grimm, and percussionist Geoff Brady managed to capture the essence of a Stray Passage experience. The energy they harness on their live-recorded debut album, Emergence, is spatially, dynamically, and emotionally visceral. Stray Passage hone in on the ideals of composition-in-performance and have a knack of suggesting acute awareness in structure as they perform, as if structural decisions are, in fact, predetermined. That said, as the band discussed with us ahead of the album's release, Emergence is all about improvisation. All three members weave in and out of freely tumultuous passages and desolate spaciousness, achieving a collective, convincing direction that challenges the listener's understanding of the passing of time in live composition." —Emili Earhart
