The New Cool with DX-tet

Recent Cornish College of the Arts graduate Dylan Hayes has been gaining momentum as a sought-after pianist, composer, and bandleader. Notably, Hayes recently took the reins of the Jim Knapp Orchestra. “My compositions are brought to life through arrangements and I enjoy arranging for all of the various instruments, which is why I am drawn to writing for larger ensemble’s such as big band or octet,” says Hayes. His octet, DX-tet, is co-led by Xavier Lecouturier. Both originally from the Bay-area, the two are long-time friends and collaborators. Their music draws from a wide range of genres including hip-hop, pop, funk, and jazz.

Presented in partnership with KNKX, The New Cool series spotlights 21st century jazz inspired and informed by the sounds of today: hip-hop, funk, Electronic music and punk rock. Tune in Saturdays 3-5 pm with host, Abe Beeson, as he explore the future of jazz then check in at Resonance to explore it up close, in person, and live!
