Anna Webber Profiled

Composer and multi-instrumentalist Anna Webber has emerged as a major force since arriving in New York in 2008. She has released a series of innovative records including her trio, Simple (2014) and Binary (2016), both on Skirl Records, and most recently, her septet, Clockwise, just released in February. Her performances and recordings bristle with compositional ideas and sophisticated improvisations. She plays next with Matteo Liberatore and Lesley Mok at Spectrum on May 20; and with fellow-Canadian saxophonist Angela Morris, they summon their big band to the Queens Museum on June 9. I had the opportunity to speak with Ms. Webber about her work.
