Composer and musician Larry Ochs is one of who channels the Anthony Braxton model, long applying the next idea to the basic templates of Jazz and Western Concert music. Going back to 1996, Ochs is one of our longest collaborators- including the ROVA Saxophone Quartet and the recent trio visit with Nels Cline. “Between defined idioms” is a fair snap piece of “brandiness” to apply to him, too. Why try harder. Are you open to pushing some boundaries in art?
It’s worth noting that each of The Fictive Five members are composers in their own right as well as practiced listeners. Listening and reacting with an audible reply- and arguably more important, not audibly reacting at that specific juncture- is a tentpole of thoughtful improvising. You’ve had chances to hear Ochs live in town six times. Note: This tour version of the group is The Fictive Five (Less One Live) with bassist Pascal Niggenkemper away in Paris, France.
Harris Eisenstadt brought us his Canada Day quintet at Timucua in 2012, so maybe you witnessed his rolling compositional takes on 1960’s Post-Bop, nudged by his open drumming combinations calling in studied Contemporary Classical and Afro-Cuban forms.
Nate Wooley was on that trip, too. Don’t fear Nate but if you play the trumpet, maybe, yeah do so. His toolkit includes growing up playing in a community Swing Jazz orchestra and traversing to playing high-tension brass analogue compositions by electronic pioneers Elaine Radique and Annea Lockwood.
Bassist Ken Filiano has never appeared on any of the one-hundred and eleven concerts that we’ve presented. It seems unlikely- almost impossible- that we haven’t intersected in our Venn diagrams. He is a regular Guiding Artist at Karl Berger and Ingrid Sertso’s foundational Creative Music Studio and has played with nearly a dozen artists that we have booked so far. We’ll fix this tear in the fabric and likely see him a second time later in 2020, too.
