In a startling turn of events, Jazz Telephone has changed names to Haboob. No reason was given.
Haboob, formerly Jazz Telephone, plays original music- music that elicits feelings of ennui and hubris. Sax, organ, bass and drums provide a resonate palette with which to paint a vast and visceral landscape of love and hope.
French Telephone is the French iteration of Jazz Telephone, formed to play original compositions written by Jeff Grubic. French Telephone played on July 9th, 2015 in Nantes, France at Stereolux in conjunction with the So Film Summercamp Festival.
French Telephone: Jeff Grubic- sax, Enid Pifeteau- organ, Stephane Louvin- guitar, Matthias Moreno- drums, Benoit Guchitet- bass.
In conjunction with La Nuit du Van in Nantes, France, Grubic’s Cube, a large metal cage, was built, inside of which a band played for four hours until impeded by thousands of balloons inflated by passers-by.
The musicians: Jeff Grubic- sax, Enid Pifeteau- organ, Stephane Louvin- guitar, Matthias Moreno- drums, Benoit Guchitet- bass. Special thanks to Laurent Marechal and Greg!

Celebrated experimental filmmaker Dominic Angerame (SF) makes a special appearance at Exploded View, screening his film cycle that explores the unprecedented change in the urban landscape of San Francisco. Chronicled in beautiful black & white celluloid, Angerame poetically questions the role of human labor and the unintended consequences of progress on a city in chaotic flux. Tonight we screen films in both 16mm and video, including Deconstruction Site and In The Course of Human Events. Opening the show and accompanying Angerame’s films Continuum & The Soul of Things is sax master Jeff Grubic’s Jazz Telephone!!
