Larry Ochs Sax and Drumming Core Saturday, November 1, Seattle Art Museum

ROVA’s Larry Ochs leads an all-star ensemble consisting of percussionists Scott Amendola and Don Robinson
and special guests from Tokyo, pianist Satoko Fujii and her trumpeter husband, Natsuki Tamura. Together they perform what they describe as “a meditation on and a 21st-century distillation
of the songs of American and eastern-European blues-shouters, and of traditional chant-singers from Asia and Africa.”
This is music loaded with playful musical dialogue and melodic, polyrhythmic
exchanges. At once thunderous
and subtle, sweet and dramatic, Larry Ochs Drum Core offers, as one critic wrote, “everything great music should offer: true emotions, adventure, variation, interplay, tension, surprise, and entertainment.” Augmented here by the wildly-creative Fujii, one of the most original voices on her instrument, and the equally-compelling Tamura, this special performance will feature both familiar and unfamiliar musical dialects presented in a concert like none other.

    Well it took some time but after the helpful intervention from the British Journal of Photography, The Guardian has apologised for using an image for one of its online articles without crediting or compensating me and has offered compensation which I have accecepted.
