Event description

Description

Arm-Sized Legging is a project consisting of woodwinds, cello, bass, and drums, playing a repertoire of all original compositions. The music explores textures and colors, as well as the various sonorities of the distinct instrumentation. Although many parts are written out, there is also plenty of room for improvisation; the group makes use of both free-form and traditional song forms to use as the basis of collective soloing. The addition of the cello to the standard jazz-saxophone trio adds a contemporary classical element to the mix.

FEATURING:
Matt Renzi – saxophone, oboe, English horn
Jessica Ivry – cello
John Wiitala – bass
Tim Bulkley – drums
