The Flail

With trumpeter Dan Blankinship, tenor saxophonist Stephan Moutot, pianist Brian Marsella, bassist Reid Taylor, and drummer Charles Goold 

“What a magnificent discovery!  What good there is, in my job as a critic, is that sometimes, far too rarely, one discovers a group like The Flail... Their jazz is consonant, inventive, and never falls into easy effects or sounds unpleasing to the ear.” – Michel Bedin of Jazz Hot

 “I’d pay good money to see these guys play.” – Jazz legend Kenny Barron

The Flail is a New York City-based jazz quintet from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. Since its inception in 2001, The Flail has focused on developing a group sound, with each member enjoying an equal voice in composition and improvisation. This flexible attitude is highlighted in all aspects of their music, which covers an incredible amount of stylistic ground. Their original compositions boast intricate, weaving forms, daring solos, and a wide range of ideas and grooves that are brought together seamlessly – or perhaps not “seamlessly,” but naturally – and those seams are so clever and engaging that they’re simply part of the fun. A fresh sound by a jointly experienced, globally touring group.
