Guitarist Nels Cline is considered one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists by Rolling Stone magazine. While he is most commonly identified as the lead guitarist in Wilco, Cline has a storied career transcending stylistic boundaries as an improvising avant-garde stalwart and emphatic hired gun. He appears in the role of improvisor in the company of Gerald Cleaver and Larry Ochs. Gerald Cleaver is an in-demand drummer in and amongst the world’s meanest competition for that position in New York City. Cleaver’s credits include legendary creatives Roscoe Mitchell and Henry Threadgill. Larry Ochs is a co-founder of the forty-one year running ROVA, one of the first saxophone quartets in jazz music. Ochs makes his sixth appearance at an Orlando-area Civic Minded 5 concert with this improvising trio.

Annie Gosfield, whom the BBC called “A one woman Hadron collider,” lives in New York City and works on the boundaries between notated and improvised music, electronic and acoustic sounds, refined timbres and noise. Her music is often inspired by the inherent beauty of found sounds, noise, and machinery. She was dubbed “a master of musical feedback” by The New York Times, who wrote “Ms. Gosfield’s choice of sounds — which on (one) occasion included radio static, the signals transmitted by the Soviet satellite Sputnik I, and recordings of Hurricane Sandy — are never a mere gimmick.
