TSP is redefining jazz for a new generation by expanding jazz improvisations to songs ranging from Radiohead, Paul McCartney, AC/DC to Cole Porter, Miles Davis and more. Each artist embraces multiple genres displaying virtuosity on their instruments and creating a signature sound by weaving the rhythmic and textural elements of didgeridoo, guitar, trumpet and rhythm section, enhanced with raw, emotional vocals.
Mark Rapp (trumpet) and Derek Lee Bronston (guitar), masters of their instruments are also tech gurus. Their original Applum app launched their first recording together Art of the Song, vol. 1. Its repertoire, created by messaging Garage Band tracks, became a full blown interactive music application. Ever on the cutting edge, they’re now developing a new set of app releases for both iOS and HTML5 in early 2012. Their tech innovations are clearly having an impact on the music industry. Just a year after the release of their Applum, other pop icons followed suit using nearly the same technology model to release their own music.
