Body Music, Percussion & Rhythm Dance

Free Dive

Free Dive has been performing and recording together since 2003.  All the band members contribute original compositions and collaborate on arrangements.  The groove-based quintet features Jeff Cressman (trombone), Bryan Dyer (vocals), Cecilia Engelhart (vocals, percussion), Steve Hogan (bass, beatboxing) and Keith Terry (drums, body music).  The absence of a chordal instrument gives Free Dive their fresh sound — open, transparent, cinematic, evocative.

Because of the broad musical backgrounds of all the band members, Free Dive explores many different musical styles including Jazz, popular song and Latin American- and African-influenced musics, and incorporates and encourages improvisation.

Free Dive released their eponymous album November 22, 2021, celebrating in concert as a part of Keith Terry’s 70 Orbits at the Freight & Salvage, Berkeley.
