Based in Ann Arbor, Jesse Kramer is one of the most in demand drummers in Metro Detroit. Kramer leads this energetic trio featuring Max Bowen on guitar and Brian Juarez on bass. The trio combines contemporary Jazz, avant garde, and Afro-Latin for an eclectic musical experience.
Kramer’s latest project “Antinous as Osiris” was inspired by two of the most important 20th century literary figures, Marguerite Yourcenar and Langston Hughes. Kramer translates Yourcenar’s exquisite language from her historical novel “Memoirs of Hadrian” and Hughes’ cadence from “Montage of a Dream Deferred” into timeless melodies with lush harmonies and sophisticated rhythmic structures.
