We are Eight 02, a contemporary jazz fusion group with a particular knack for improvisational risk-taking. Eight 02 is a collaboration between current members of critically acclaimed Kilimanjaro (Lucas Adler and Chris Peterman) and founding members of Picture This (Peter Engisch and Jerome Monachino). Our sound has been described as a mix of contemporary jazz with a decidedly fresh fusion flavor. With an emphasis on melodic architecture that is balanced by raw-spirited improvisation, Lou D'Antonio (Jazz Spectrum 104.7, WNCS The Point) said it best: "beyond category, beautiful; tremendously accessible and exciting." We hope you agree. Eight 02 is honored to announce that the incomparable percussionist, LENNY CASTRO, has once again joined us for our newest release, DRIVE. We are also pleased to have world-renowned bassist JIMMY EARL (Joe sample, Chick Corea, Jimmy Kimmel Show...) join us on our lead off track, Chocolate Amber.
