ORNETTE, LACY, & POINTS BEYOND...
This exceptional jazz lineup features 2 bands:
Set 1: ROVA Saxophone Quartet  compositions by Ornette associates Steve Lacy and John Carter, as well as a piece each by Rova member Jon Raskin, and British composer John Butcher.

Set 2: Joe Lasqo's Tomorrow Is The Meta-Body (Lisle Ellis, Darren Johnston, Joe Lasqo, Donald Robinson), featuring a réprise of bass/piano dialog from Ellis' Ornette Coleman Songbook (Downbeat ), now expanded with trumpet, drums, & laptop.

More precisely:

Set 1: ROVA Saxophone Quartet features compositions by Ornette associates Steve Lacy and John Carter, as well as a piece each by Rova member Jon Raskin, and British composer John Butcher.

Soprano sax specialist Steve Lacy played regularly and shared ideas with trumpeter Don Cherry, one of Ornette's longest standing collaborators. Lacy rehearsed and played with Ornette, and even traveled with his double quartet to Cincinnati in 1961 to perform "Free Jazz".

Multi-instrumentalist and composer John Carter grew up in Fort Worth, Texas and was an early associate of Ornette's. They both migrated to LA, where Mr. Carter settled, performing his brand of open jazz, and working as an educator. His approach to improvisation shared a lot with Ornette, especially in the early days, but his compositional sense developed quite differently.

Rova Saxophone Quartet explores the synthesis of composition and collective improvisation, creating exciting, genre-bending music that challenges and inspires.

Set 2: Joe Lasqo's Tomorrow Is The Meta-Body (Lisle Ellis, Darren Johnston, Joe Lasqo, Donald Robinson)& will present a réprise of bass/piano dialog from Ellis' Ornette Coleman Songbook (Downbeat ), now expanded with trumpet, drums, & laptop.

Pianist / laptopist Joe Lasqo studied classical music in India; computer / electronic music at MIT, Columbia, Berkeley/CNMAT; has been a long-time performing modern & avant jazz musician; & has lived, played and listened in several Asian and European countries (now in San Francisco).

NYC bassist and computer musician, Lisle Ellis, began playing electric bass in his teens & worked professionally from an early age in numerous environments including studios, radio & tv shows, & strip clubs.

Since settling in San Francisco, Canada-born trumpeter & composer Darren Johnston has collaborated and recorded with an extremely diverse cross-section of artists.  His interests rotate around composing instrumental music, writing songs, and performing all styles of jazz, experimental and purely improvised music.

Described by Coda as a "percussive dervish", Donald Robinson is a technical master of the drums. He's a stalwart of the of San Francisco Bay Area avant-garde jazz scene.
