Wayward Music Series brings some jazz and improvisation to Good Shepherd Center this Friday, April 15, with an evening of music from Spectral Trio. The Bay Area-based group is Dave Rempis (alto sax), Darren Johnston (trumpet), and Larry Ochs (tenor and sopranino saxes), and their Seattle concert is just one stop on a US tour celebrating their newest album, Neutral Nation.
About Spectral Trio:
Forming in 2015, this all-horns free-improvising trio came together when Rempis journeyed to the West Coast to discover some things about his compatriots on the Bay Area improvising scene. From the first few notes, their initial meeting flowed comfortably, yet in totally unexpected ways, with all three making logical structural decisions that gave their improvisations the feel of through-composed pieces. Not satisfied with simply existing in the moment, these three combine sensibilities to look many moves ahead, setting each other up time and again to capitalize on structural possibilities that give rare and meaningful form to an otherwise very spontaneous music.
Wayward Music requests a $5-15 donation at the door.
