“Last Call” is the 1st release from Austin based band, “Tony Bray & One Too Many.” It is the 5th release from composer and saxophonist Tony Bray. The 1st two were releases were with the LA based jazz group “Atria” and later in 2007 was “A Step Forward” as the “Long Beach Jazz Quartet.” Tony also released an Eastern infused jazz project in 2004 under his own name called “Outside,Looking In” that gained a good bit of traction in the “World” music scene.

“Last Call” is a little harder to define in terms of genre. Compositionally, there are elements of rock, jazz, Eastern and classical music. As a group, T Bray & One Too Many approaches each composition as a vehicle to express the individual influences of each player in the ensemble. You will hear free jazz intertwined with heavy metal influences. You will hear Bach, Debussy and Bartok influences on the same tunes that you can pick up on the influences of Coltrane and Charlie Parker. The ensemble sections are reminiscent of the classic fusion bands of the 1970’s and at some of the more ethereal moments, the band sounds like it could have been produced in Europe as an ECM project. The bottom line is that you get a variety of colors from a group that performs more like a chamber ensemble opposed to a classic jazz rhythm section backing up a soloist. On “Last Call” many of the cuts are long form compositions interweaved with sections that are tailored specifically for whichever soloist is on deck. In fact, Bray has written these tunes with this specific group of musicians in mind and gets to show case each one throughout the recording.

As a group, “Tony Bray & One Too Many” has been performing together since 2015. They are part of the regular rotation at Austin’s famed Elephant Room. The have also performed as part of SXSW as well as San Antonio’s JazzSAlive festival.
