The Jetsam Organic Ensemble
featuring Christian Zamora on violin, Matt Knippel on cello and melodica, James Holdman on guitar and percussion, and Colin on the bass, this acoustic jazz quartet played the 2006 Macy's Day of Music in Minneapolis to great acclaim. The group breaks the boundries of traditional jazz and free improvisation with a world-music flavor. The group has also played the Dakota Jazz club in Minneapolis
featuring Heirospecs pianist deVon Gray on keys and Peter Leggett on drums, both members of the popular hip-hop group the Heirospecs, this is what you would call a triphop jazz piano trio at its finest, and can merge free and traditional elements with hip-hop and pop....or anti-pop....this group has performed to rave reviews at the Dakota Jazz Club in the Twin Cities
The Brillliant Diverge (also Xibaba)
Led by Tom Kehoe on piano and Mira Kehoe on percussion and vocals, also Colin plays in their band Xibaba sometimes. This band plays SMOKIN' Brazilian Jazz and Fusion music, and features some of the pre-eminent Brazilian Jazz gurus in the US. Xibaba would give anyone a run for the money at jazz festivals nationwide
Featuring New Orleans based J. Steigner on drums and Dr. Jimbo Walsh on keys, chaotic New Orleans free-jazz at its finest, led by the worlds foremost scholar in the music of Schenberg and Sun Ra
Featuring Matt Knippel on cello and Colin on bass, from Hermeto Pasqual to Coltrane to The Beatles, this Jazz cello/bass duo hits the spot with a nice mellow vibe. Matt is truly one of the pre-eminent jazz cellists in the country
