Jimmy Herring is currently on tour with his new band, The Invisible Whip. Over the weekend, the band made a two-night stop at The Fox Theatre in Boulder, Colorado. As a founding member of The Aquarium Rescue Unit, Project Z, and Jazz is Dead – in addition to playing with everyone from The Allman Brothers Band to The Dead to Widespread Panic – Herring has made an indelible impact on improvised music.
Composed of longtime friends and musical collaborators, The Invisible Whip, named for the intangible musical force that fuels them, is a nod to their time spent playing with their fallen hero Col. Bruce Hampton – who made a lifelong impact on the members of the band. The Invisible Whip is: drummer Jeff Sipe (aka Apt Q258), Matt Slocumon B3 organ and clavinet, bassist Kevin Scott and multi-instrumentalist Jason Crosby on Fender Rhodes, piano and violin.
