Orbit is the next chapter in the adventurous improvisational style of the AG6. The group's sound is a cultural tapestry, exploring original compositions through fierce improvisations that bridge film music and the modern jazz tradition.
Orbit is available in vinyl and digital formats on Pet Mantis Records. The group will release a new album in winter 2023.
Jim Lewis - Trumpet

“The sextet comes together to offer a gorgeous evocation of Granite's music... a thoughtful composer with exceptional resourcefulness and imagination.”
- The WholeNote Magazine (review of Orbit)
Brooklyn based Canadian guitarist/composer Granite goes to those special places full of surprise and delight. These tunes are hard to put on a finger on. Like Zappa, the changes are all fucked up and perfect at the same time.
