THE TRUTH is a jazz/funk/fusion quintet from Buffalo, NY that takes a modern approach to improvising while keeping a connection to the deep language and history in the jazz community. While a relatively new group, THE TRUTH has quickly built a reputation locally as a group of some of the most talented young musicians in WNY, and was the even named Runner Up in Jazz Buffalo’s Readers Poll for Best Jazz Fusion Act. Featuring a style that grooves, reflects, and pushes boundaries, THE TRUTH is truly a modern collective.

“What then is truth? A mobile army of metaphors, metonyms, and anthropomorphisms — in short, a sum of human relations, which have been enhanced, transposed, and embellished poetically and rhetorically, and which after long use seem firm, canonical, and obligatory to a people: truths are illusions about which one has forgotten that is what they are; metaphors which are worn out and without sensuous power; coins which have lost their pictures and now matter only as metal, no longer as coins.”
