Common Time / Bio

"Common Time" is a 4-piece instrumental group who's amalgamation of influences come together to form a fusion of jazz and rock marked by sharp improvisation and grooves. Consisting of violin, keys, bass, and drums, "Common Time" brings together the sounds of Jean-luc Ponty, Chick Corea, and Return To Forever with classical music and film-scoring elements to create original compositions that are unique, high-energy, and aurally enticing.

The members of "Common Time" not only bring local and international performance backgrounds to the stage, but also present an endless scope of musical variety through their compositions, ranging in influence from Philip Glass to the Mahavishnu Orchestra. The captivation of their compositions is matched only by their performance of them, an ever-changing show of harmony and spontaneous creativity that is sure to keep listeners engaged and wanting more.

One doesn't listen to "Common Time." One experiences "Common Time."
