The San Diego Sound Project kicks off with the Montalban Quintet, a jazzy rock collective based out of San Diego. Featuring influences of post-punk, minimalism, jazz, 50s schmaltz, field recordings, and new western art music, a live show with the Montalban Quintet is an eclectic and soul-filling experience.
The live band features Chris Prescott (drums, electronics), Carl Prescott (trumpet), Kenseth Thibideau (bass, vocals), Jim Weiss (tenor and baritone saxophone), Rodrigo Contreras (piano), Greg Friedman (guitar, vocals), Julie Kitterman (glockenspiel, percussion, vocals). This talented group’s individual musical endeavors include: Pinback, Boilermaker, Sleeping People, The Jade Shader, The Mattson 2, Big Time Operator, No Knife, Systems Officer, Tanner and more. They have birthed all their recordings/collaborations at a small recording facility in Encinitas, CA known lovingly as the Belly of the Whale
The Museum of Making Music will be hosting an online discussion with Chris Prescott on Thursday, September 24 at 11:00 AM where we will discuss the music, influences, and origins of Montalban Quintet.
