Based in Downtown San Jose, the Jazz Mechanics have emerged from their machine shop, crafting a new modern voice in Jazz. This hopped up trio expands the genre of improvisational music, performing original compositions that draw on a variety of influences including bebop jazz, Afro Cuban and Fusion Jazz/Rock. On piano is Daniel Fillip, a motor city native with a background in modern and Latin jazz. Back on the traps, and down in the grease pit, drummer Michael Brilliot brings a rhythmic toolbox to the band that is grounded in diversity of styles, from jazz and New Orleans based funk, to rhythm and blues, and roots rock. Laying down the foundation for the band’s hard-hitting force is bassist Doug Pohorski. Together these three Jazz Mechanics are a finely tuned jazz machine that infuse rock and roll energy into their performances and draw the audience in for a rich and dynamic experience.
