Red Oak

Red Oak Duo These two acclaimed composers and improvisors, whose relationship dates back to their days as students at the California Institute of the Arts, have crafted a unique duo act. Reminiscent of Bill Frisell, Pat Metheny and Keith Jarrett, the landscapes of America are painted in stark detail on their self-titled debut album.

Storm Nilson is a native Alaskan and a graduate of both CalArts and McGill University. He has been performing, recording, and educating throughout the United States and Canada for the past 13 years. His musical inspiration has been nurtured by opportunities to play with some of the world's top jazz musicians such as Charlie Haden and Steve Cardenas.

Adam Benjamin is a Grammy-nominated pianist and composer who is recognized as a Rising Star in Jazz by Downbeat magazine. He is a founding member of the critically acclaimed and influential electric crossover quintet Kneebody, and a longtime collaborator with jazz master Dave Douglas.
