What started out as an Ornette Coleman cover band, became so much more when it branched out with compositions by Thelonious Monk, Mihaly Dresch, Kenny Wheeler, Thomas Chapin, Wayne Shorter, John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, and Bela Bartok. OrnEtc. is also focused on original tunes. 
Lesser known standards and raucous originals are melody-driven, and played without traditional chordal instruments to emphasize the interplay between melody, improvisation, and the rhythm-section.

Love Unfold The Sun 

Atmospheric, searing and hypnotic, the Middle Eastern-tinged free-jazz/funk quartet Love Unfold The Sun brings sparkling interplay within hypnotic, muscular grooves. The band recently released  the album "Live At Duel" on Norumba Records, a live set from Duel Brewing, Santa Fe, offering a more energetic, conversational take on the usual world/jazz mashup genre: "The open improvisations reveal an acute sensitivity ,..., ushering the quartet into one bracing and surprising exploration after another." Mel Minter, Musically Speaking, April 2019

Led by guitarist/oudist Mustafa Stefan Dill (who has performed at numerous guitar and and jazz festivals around the world and led the groups Sama Duo and Pray For Brain, as well as work with Cecil Taylor and others),  Love Unfold The Sun reunites a criticially acclaimed Santa Fe based lineup from the early 2000s. 
The Taos edition features Ornetc drummer Dave Wayne on drums and Ross Hamlin on bass, with special guest Chris Jonas on saxophones, marking  the first time Dill and Jonas have played since meeting as members in a mid 90s  project for Cecil Taylor.
