Noisy Strangers

This ensemble’s name was bestowed upon them by Darren’s cats, on the day of our first rehearsal at his house.   A drummer less group, we’re actually not all that noisy.


Darren Johnston – trumpet
Matt Renzi – clarinet, tenor sax, English horn
Adam Shulman – piano
Eric Vogler – upright bass

Our first performances were of our “Bye Bye Bartok” book – symphonic and chamber-music themes reinvented for improvisers.
