Twilight Archive is a trio of musicians from Southern California exploring an ambient jazz sound. The group includes drummer Chris Mancinelli who has played with Nels Cline and Osamu Kitajima and electronic artist Tom Vedvik who has recorded as a solo artist and with cellist Martin Tillman. They’re joined by trumpeter John Fumo, a musician steeped in jazz who has played with Mel Tormé, Crosby Stills & Nash, Smokey Robinson and Celine Dion while also playing outside jazz with Vinny Golia and his own group, Fumosonic. They get together to make a dark, swampy ambient jazz channeling Miles Davis through Jon Hassell Fourth-World grooves and electronica modes. They talk about their evolution and new album, Mood Chain.
