Song & Dance Trio: Karl Evangelista-guitar, Jordan Glenn-drums, Cory Wright-baritone sax
Oakland art rock trio Grex and LA trumpeter Dan Clucas perform a powerful, drastic reworking of John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme, refracting the mighty saxophonist’s suite through a gauntlet of noise rock, alternative hip-hop, and other latter day musics. Karl Evangelista’s longstanding Song & Dance Trio–a bass-less blend of modern jazz textures and roving, garage-y energy–opens the evening.
