With just two musicians wielding a full-band sized arsenal of acoustic drums, electric 7-string guitar/bass, pedals, pads and samples, PLANET LOOP is a unique trip not to be missed.  Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area, the duo forges their unique brand of “electro-funk jazz,” combining wild improvisation with the deep rhythms of worldbeat, Latin, funk, and trance music.  Frequently a third performer ranging from sax to piano to guitar to DJ shares the stage as well as part of the rotating “PLANET LOOP TRIO.”

Part of the hypnotic nature of our songs comes from the loops we create and the influences we draw from,” notes bassist Michael Schaller.  “But, we are a live band with jazz roots, committed to creating all of our sounds in the moment, on the stage.

The project is the most recent brainchild of longtime collaborators Michael Schaller (bass/loops/samples) and Carrie Jahde (drums/ electronics).  The two have collectively performed on stages spanning all corners of the United States, Italy, and Eastern Europe.  Having played and released records together for close to a decade in groups including Carmizin, Los Mex Pistols, Eclypse, and the Neil Bjorklund Group, the duo takes spontaneous musical communication to an entirely new level.

Our music is an organic outcome of our long history together as performers,” explains drummer Carrie Jahde.  “We both have so many ideas that need to come out; in this duo we find the perfect forum to collaborate, take musical risks, and just enjoy the ride.”
