The Generations Sextet presents improvised music in a very unique
manner, utilizing three and four part harmony (trumpet, trombone,
saxophone, piano, bass and drums) on the melodies of the tunes plus
what audiences have called a rather “conversational” approach to
Rather than the typical “soloist/accompanist “ presentation this
sextet demonstrates a “group” effort with the soloist of the moment
becoming the “moderator” of the improvisational dialogue.
Audiences become very involved in the musical experience and their
energy is mirrored in the sextets performance. Bob Montgomery’s
unique arrangements provide wonderful springboards into the
improvisational waters of this sextets music.
The Sextet performs the same original music, standards and jazz
standards that they perform in their concert tours throughout the
world. You can expect to hear music that you are familiar with done
in a unique manner as well as music that you are not familiar with
that may become your new favorite listening experience.
