about

This set of 14 miniatures for solo muted trumpet was inspired by the sights, sounds, and creatures of one of California’s most serene and historic places. The music was created, performed, and recorded by Kris Tiner while in residence at Montalvo Arts Center in the forested foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Incorporating the natural reverb of the John Bluth painters’ studio along with ambient recordings of the Montalvo grounds, In the Ground and Overhead is a focused and heartfelt meditation on nature and solitude by Tiner, a veteran of many acclaimed West Coast jazz and creative music ensembles including the Empty Cage Quartet, Tin/Bag, Psychic Temple, the Vinny Golia Quintet, and the Industrial Jazz Group.

“Kris Tiner is a superbly fluid trumpeter, with a clean articulation in the upper register, deft valving, and a winning lyrical bent.”
– Jason Bivins, Cadence Magazine

“Extraordinarily inventive… suggesting still-untapped potentials in Miles Davis’s legacy – it’s as if Tiner has plumbed the most daring, piercing moments in Davis’s music to propose a boldface musical language utterly different from the usual stylized fragility of Miles disciples.”
– Nate Dorward, Signal to Noise Magazine

“Kris Tiner’s trumpet is perfectly suited to the moment.”
– Dave Cantor, DownBeat
