Larry Ochs and Don Robinson at Fresh Sound Music Series at Space 4 Art
Larry Ochs. saxophones; Don Robinson, drums (San Francisco) Since 1991 Ochs and Robinson have performed together in various power-house ensembles: The Glenn Spearman Double Trio, Lisle Ellis’ What We Live, Larry Ochs Sax & Drumming Core, and Rova’s Electric Ascension Band. Living just 15 minutes apart in Oakland and Berkeley, and having jammed and rehearsed in Robinson’s studio all this time, it seems inevitable that they would – finally - create a special repertoire for this classic horn - drum duo configuration, revealing their own musical zone to inhabit within a tradition steeped in legendary music both live and on record. Listen to Coltrane-Ali, Braxton-Roach, McPhee-Drake, Leo Smith – DeJohnette, etc.; then come to this concert for another take on the sax-drum duo.
