Sons of Daughters is made up of saxophonist Patrick Breiner, bassist Aaron Darrell and drummer Devin Drobka.  They perform ‘post-free’ music as Steve Lacy would call it, I believe.  Their sets today were comprised primarily of originals by the bandmates and some standards by Monk and Cherry.

It was a very hot evening in Boston, and even though the crowd was not at its usual capacity, between 500 and 600 people enjoyed the performance.  Some of the bands friends/ classmates also made it down to check out their music.

An interesting idea the trio has developed is vocalizing melodies, keeping with the idea of an instrumental group.  They use their voices, Aaron and Patrick, as a different color for their compositions.
