    Chase Elodia’s Perennials is a Brooklyn-based ensemble. Their 2022 Biophilia Records release, Portrait Imperfect, was named one of the Best New Albums of 2022 by Downbeat Magazine. Founded in 2020, the band combines a collaborative and improvisational sensibility with an aesthetic orientation that has been nourished by singer-songwriters and electronic artists like Meshell Ndegeocello, Norma Winstone, and Becca Stevens.  Each member of the group is an exciting, emerging voice in the contemporary jazz scene in New York: Claire Dickson on Voice, Tyrone Allen on Bass, and Theo Walentiny on piano/keyboards, and Chase Elodia on drums. They toured across the USA in 2022, with performances at Lakehouse Jazz (San Francisco), The Muse (Boulder, CO), Oberlin College and Conservatory, Rudy’s Jazz Room (Nashville, TN), Fulton St. Collective (Chicago, IL), and Rockwood Music Hall. They were a featured ensemble at the 2023 Winter Jazz Festival and will be touring in Europe in summer 2023.
