Reconnaissance Fly is both aggressively whimsical and charmingly incoherent. Spam poetry, found texts, and original lyrics mix deliriously with jazz, progressive rock, funk, samba, free improvisation, a small Chinese gong, and an arsenal of wind instruments all deployed against the forces of tedium.
The five members of Reconnaissance Fly are Amanda Chaudhary with keyboard and electronics; Rich Lesnik playing clarinet, bass clarinet, and soprano and tenor saxophones; Polly Moller with voice, flutes and guitar; Larry the O on the drums, and Tim Walters on bass guitar and electronics.
On January 17, 2014, Edgetone Records opened a small cat carrier and released Reconnaissance Fly's debut album, Flower Futures, into the wild. Live shows in support of this CD will be many and varied, so subscribe to this site for updates!
