THC is comprised of seven rotating members. In its current inversion, THC includes Alexander Cummings on alto saxophone, Patrick Adams on trumpet, myself-- Terry Hsieh-- on trombone, Jacob Baron on piano, Peter Manheim on drums, Conrad Reeves on guitar and effects, and Matt Adomeit on bass. In the past, the group has also included Will Miller, Gabriel Pollack, Daniel Stein, Brandon Gaoiran, Matthew Adomeit, Timothy Bennett, Michael King, Alex Morris, Julia Chen and Cory Rogers.

In late 2012, we decided to begin work on an album of all original THC compositions and arrangements from the past four years. Our goal is to create an album that challenges ears, minds and hearts: music that moves people and, as Drummer Peter Manheim always says: "goes hard". It's hard to explain, but easy to get behind: Jazz legends like John Coltrane, Art Blakey, Benny Golson, JJ Johnson, Freddie Hubbard, Wes Montgomery, but also Katy Perry, Carly Rae Jepsen, J Dilla and so many more.

We put all these things together in such a way that makes it so there's something for everyone-- not just those who have trained in the Jazz tradition. It's a sound that I am sure you will not only enjoy, but learn from-- and relish. The project will be divided into two parts: an Extended Play that we plan to release in Winter of 2013, and an album that will hit the shelves in the summer of 2014. Both EP and album will feature all original music by members of THC. Expect the unexpected: A suite exploring the strange titles of labyrinthine passages within the Forbidden City, or a high-octane arrangement of that oh-so-familiar Carly Rae Jepsen single?
