Earprint is a four-part chordless creative collective with an aggressively melodic, shamelessly youthful approach to making music. A chordless quartet—free of the confines of piano or guitar—has a uniquely open, stripped-down sound, perhaps most often associated with Ornette Coleman’s quartets or the Gerry Mulligan/Chet Baker group of the early 1950s.
Listen. Watch.

Adam O’Farrill is a Brooklyn-bred trumpeter and a “rising star as a player and composer”. O’Farrill comes from a rich musical legacy of Afro-Cuban composers, Grammy winners, and pianists. He has performed with Mulatu Astatke, Vijay Iyer, Christian McBride, Samora Pinderhughes, Onyx Collective, and JIL.
