Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber

Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber -- A Halloween Dance Party

Founded by Village Voice icon Greg "Ionman" Tate and co-led with Dayton Ohio groove bassist Jared Michael Nickerson since 1999, Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber aka The Burnt Sugar Arkestra is a sprawling band of musicians whose prodigious personnel allows to freely juggle a wide swath of the experimental soul-jazz-hip hop spectrum. 

As Tate likes to say "The Burnt Sugar Arkestra is also a territory band, a neo-tribal thang, a community hang, a society music guild aspiring to the condition of all that is molten, glacial, racial, spacial, oceanic, mythic, antiphonal and telepathic."

This very accomplished crew has playing credits that range from Cecil Taylor, Toshi Reagon, Charlie Musselwhite, DJ Logic, John Paul Bourelly, Gary Lucas, TV On The Radio, Tamar Kali, Phish, James Blood Ulmer, William Parker, Mark Ribot, Lizz Wright, The Holmes Brothers, Lady Kier, Vernon Reid, Thurston Moore, Wadada Leo Smith, David Murray, Arto Lindsey, Joseph Bowie, The Roots and Marc Ribot.

With an alumni that includes Matana Roberts, Vijay Iyer, Julia Kent, Graham Hayes, DJ Mutamassik, Okkyung Lee and Qasim Naqvi, Burnt Sugar's prestigious personnel have released eighteen recordings on their labels Tru Groidd & Avant Groidd Musica defining the art of creating scripted-sounding improvisational acid-funk/rock & jazz with the use of Butch Morris’s “Conduction" System for Orchestral Improvisation in order to as Tate also says “keep it real, surreal, arboreal, aquatic, incendiary.”

Robert Christgau says “Its electric Miles with soul, Maggot Brain with a PHD, the Hendrix Evans band of dreams, the underwater funk some hear in A.R.Kane.”
