Bassist and composer Lisa Mezzacappa is set to premiere her most ambitious work to date, Glorious Ravage, an evening-length song cycle for large ensemble and film at the Angel City Jazz Festival in Los Angeles, September 26, and at the Brava Theater Center in San Francisco, October 1-2. The work takes its inspiration from Victorian-era lady adventurers who traveled the world. The work is also the product of an extensive collaboration with four moving image artists: Konrad Steiner, Alfonso Alvarez, Kathleen Quillian, and Janis Crystal.
