LARRY OCHS' SAX & DRUMMING CORE
OUT TRIOS VOL.5: UP FROM UNDER (ATAVISTIC)
The fifth installment in Atavistic's Out Trios Series configures a triad of West Coast heavies on sax & double-drums: Larry Ochs (Rova/Orkestrova), Scott Amendola (Nels Cline Singers & more); and Don Robinson (Cecil Taylor (!), Wadada Leo Smith, George Lewis, Raphe Malik & Glenn Spearman).
With absolutely lovely cover art by Emilie Clark & photos by Scott Campbell, Out Trios Volume Five kicks hard, while maintaining an omniscient cool.
Other releases in the Out Trios Series feature groupings such as Lee Ranaldo/Roger Miller/William Hooker; Jeff Parker/Kevin Drumm/Michael Zerang; Nels Cline/Andrea Parkins/Tom Rainey, and Geoff Farina/Luther Gray/Nate McBride.
Atavistic's Out Trios Series is dedicated exclusively to issuing the most captivating instrumental music available- as deployed within the context, structure & constraints of the trio format.
The Series is an open-ended experiment in freedom, interaction & sonic architecture.
