The MPS Project

Goes Without Saying (Independent)

The MPS Project is a group of veteran professional musicians living in the Triangle region of North Carolina and dedicated to creating original, progressive Jazz Our music explores the intersections of jazz, progressive rock, and 70’s-style fusion in the tradition of Return to Forever and Weather Report Informed by contemporary chamber music, collective free improvisation, and modern “jam-band” sensibilities, the MPS Project boldly and expertly covers a wide swath of musical territory, ranging from heartfelt lyrical ballads to ethereal sonic textures to complex rhythmic structures to blistering electronic funk.
