Merrimans' Playhouse Jazz Performance Series presents River Song Quintet
River Song is a Los Angeles-based quintet devoted to the performance of original compositions and arrangements that seamlessly blend the traditions of jazz and improvised music with western classical chamber and American folk music. An ensemble comprised of composers, River Song includes Lauren Baba (Viola, Violin), Alina Roitstein (Voice), Andrew Rowan (Cornet), Harrison Kirk (Trombone), and Gregory Uhlmann (Guitar).
Their performances have been described as "sparse and beautiful mesmerizing and strewn with hauntingly gorgeous vocals." (Jhanne Jasmine, Camellia Lounge, Portland, OR) and " a joyous blending of memorable compositions, artful orchestration, subtle improvisation, and fresh creative energy." (Art Lande, Grammy-nominated Pianist).
River Song originally formed at The California Institute of the Arts in the Spring of 2011 and has since performed extensively throughout Los Angeles and on the West Coast. Their flexible and unique sound has lead to performances at a wide range of venues including concert halls, jazz clubs, coffee shops, as well as at schools and universities.
