The Terranean Tinge was created by saxophonist Matt Garrison in October 2016. What started out as a one off engagement at Rosemary and Vine, a vegan/vegetarian mediterranean restaurant in Rye NY, quickly turned into a weekly Wednesday jazz show. The owners of the club happened to be very serious about the decor and atmosphere presented to their patrons and the type of music to be played each week was discussed. Musical examples were traded and the final conclusion was to perform a sort of jazz/mediterranean fusion for the audience. Garrison quickly began composing new music to fit in with the style of the club, using different defining characteristics of Turkish, Lebanese, and American jazz music. Hip-Hop is also infused in the mix. The musicians chosen all have different cultural and musical backgrounds and contribute their personal flavors to each piece. The music contains many different “grooves” but all songs stress singable melodies.
