Chris Speed, tenor saxophone; Jim Black, percussion; Trevor Dunn, bass; Oscar Noriega, alto saxophone and clarinets. Chris performed at Fresh Sound in 1998 with Cuong Vu, Skuli Severson, and Jim Black, and in 2014 with Dave King and Chris Tordini. "Endangered Blood" was formed in 2008 and their music draws from the members' diverse backgrounds and influences, combining post-bop, 20th-century chromaticism, traditional New Orleans funeral marches, avant-garde jazz and post-punk to create a sort of mad-scientist concoction. Its compositions are cerebral, but they're also gritty and full of energy.
