Steven Lugerner's SLUGish Ensemble:


SLUGish Ensemble is a musical amoeba under the direction of composer & multi-reedist Steven Lugerner. Based between San Francisco & Oakland, CA, their music utilizes traditional acoustic instruments to create layers of pocketed-grooves and melodies that blur the lines between pop, rhythm & blues, jazz improvisation and minimalism.

As a band leader, Steven Lugerner has released multiple albums to critical acclaim. His compositions have been described as “a textured, nearly seamless blend of composition and improvisation” by The Village Voice - while The San Francisco Examiner as praised “Lugerner’s approach to making music is very much his own; and he seems to be pursuing it to impressive advantage.”

The inaugural album from SLUGish Ensemble, An Eight Out of Nine, will be released this fall on Slow & Steady Records.
