WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Collectively led by drummer and vocalist Guillermo E Brown, bassist Keith Witty and saxophonist Christophe Panzani, Thiefs is a grammatically incoherent jazz bastardization. Fully acoustic to fully electronic, Thiefs weaves elements of modern composition and improvisation into a boundary-less foundation of beats. Between them, Brown, Witty and Panzani have supported artists as varied as Amel Larrieux, Anthony Braxton, Carla Bley, David S. Ware, EL-P, Jamie Lidell, Saul Williams, Somi and VIjay Iyer. As Thiefs, their experiences and influences make a hot mess in the melting pan. Thiefs is supported by Chamber Music America and the French American Cultural Exchange's CMA/FACE French-American Jazz Exchange Program, funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, The cultural services of the French Embassy, Le Bureau Export de la Musique Francaise and CulturesFrance.
