Ingrid Laubrock Residency in NY, July 31 – August 1

From Ingrid Laubrock:

Saxophonist and composer Ingrid Laubrock will premiere new music over two evenings on July 31 and August 1 at the Jazz Gallery in NYC as part of The Jazz Gallery Residency Commission Series. The two nights will feature two very different ensembles performing the same compositions: the first evening (7/31) she will be joined by Kris Davis on piano and Mary Halvorson on guitar, and the the second evening (8/1) by Vincent Chancey on french horn and pandeiro, Eivind Opsvik and Michael Formanek on double basses, and Tom Rainey on drums. Ms. Laubrock will perform both evenings on soprano and tenor saxophones as well as short pieces on piano. Of the new works, Laubrock says, “My idea behind composing one repertoire for these two entirely different lineups was to write music that is malleable and completely new sounding in two consecutive nights of performances, kind of ‘the same, but not the same’. I chose the two basses in the second lineup to create an extra challenge for me as a composer and arranger.”
