Bizingas is Brian Drye’s Quartet. With drummer Ches Smith and guitarist Jonathan Goldberger we navigate Drye’s energetic and creative,rock-influenced music. We recorded our first CD, Bizingas, for NCM East in 2010.
“The debut album by trombonist Brian Drye exposes a fierce imagination, blurring the line between composition and improvisation. Trust, freedom and reckless abandon affirm the strength and energy of this combustible and virulent combination of seasoned improvisors.” - http://ncmeast.com/
We went back into the studio in July 2013 to record our 2nd CD, this time with Brian also playing organ. The 2nd release is entitled "Eggs Up High" carries on with more great writing and playing!
