Larry Ochs & Donald Robinson – OUTDOORS

Celebrating the June 2021 release of their second and definitive duo recording, A Civil Right, Don Robinson (drums) and Larry Ochs (saxophones) are really looking forward to this East Bay show; an actual live performance. The Duo will perform pieces from their new CD, releasing on ESP-Disk’, where free-jazz icon Albert Ayler became the first free-jazz musician to record for the now legendary label in 1964. A lot has changed since 1964, but a lot and perhaps “too much” remains virtually the same. So our duo music, while influenced by many musical discoveries and sociological developments that have become part of the firmament over the past 60 years, still celebrates and revels in the spirit of sixties free jazz.
