The Flail is comprised of five veteran jazz musicians whose diverse paths to pro status brought them all into league together at the New School of Jazz in the late-1990s. Tenor saxophonist Stephan Moutot hails from France with trumpeter Dan Blankinship, bassist Reid Taylor , pianist Brian Marsella and drummer Brian Zebroski. Over the course of four tours in France they have played more than fifty concerts to packed houses in Paris, Lyon, Grenoble, Renne, Ardeche, and Marseille; highlights include Jazz a Vienne (2002, 2004) and the Marseille Festival du Jazz des Cinq Continents (2002, 2005). Their latest tour (2007) brought them to Madrid, Spain, for the first time. The Flail's repertoire is mainly comprised of original compositions written by all the members of the band. Look for abrupt turns into Spanish melodies and Klezmer rhythms with hints of Bossa Nova and the Cha-Cha with the Flail.
