Negative Press Project (NPP) is a self described jazz and indie/art rock influenced music collective based out of Oakland, CA. “Versatility abounds, and they always look for new ground to explore,” says The Bay Bridged.
Co-led by Ruthie Dineen (Piano/Keys) and Andrew Lion (Electric and Double Bass), the group is a composer’s culmination of a converted rock bassist and classically trained pianist to jazz inspired creative music. The leaders’ writing is represented on 2015’s Full-Length recording, ‘see evil eyes | civilize’ with ten original songs and arrangements split almost equally amongst the two.
The additional voices of Tony Peebles (Tenor Sax), Rafa Postel (Trumpet), Chris Sullivan (Alto Sax), Lyle Link (Alto & Tenor Sax), Luis Salcedo (Guitar), and Isaac Schwartz (Drums), imprint the music with virtuosity and diverse experience and backgrounds.
