The Verge
The Verge

Formed in New York City in 2011, the Verge is an exciting mix of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Merging improvisational music with World Pop, and original songs, the Verge brings a unique blend that live, evolves differently each night, never knowing where they are going but arriving there with conviction.

From the Latin-jazzed Miles Davis classic “Joshua” and Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun,” to the Johnny Hartman-like swing created on Britney Spears 2011 hit “I Wanna Go,” homage is paid to the past, but with feet firmly planted in today’s microteck world…the Verge is forward moving, mixing intensity with lyricism and melodicism.

An original cut penned by Jon Hanser, entitled “Ariel,” remembers Sylvia Plath and reaches out to the emotionally downtrodden. The “Dead of Night,” tone poems a village late on a snowy night.  “Above and Beyond” draws upon the deep talents of special guest bassist Richard Bona, to promise a vision of earth from space for all to see.
