Since 2011 Tomchess has used his Bandit Hat musical configurations to explore discovery, invention and spontaneity within compositionally focused improvisation towards creating a wild, beautiful, functional; authentically meaningful music in the present moment. Having played and recorded with some of the most esteemed players in the improvisational and Jazz scene (Dewey Redman, Butch Morris, Pharoah Sanders, Drew Gress, Ronald Shannon Jackson), as well as Morrocan Sintarist Hassan Hakmoun and deeply studied the Near Eastern, and North African traditions his syncretic sound encompasses the tonal palette, rhythms, and forms of these traditional musics as well as focusing on the transcendent unity of all human culture while never losing sight of his American roots and the importance and freedom of improvisation.
