Three improvisers will present individual and collaborative new works.

Rarely heard on the west coast, the Father and Son touring from Philadelphia and Taos, will present their legendary improvised saxophone + double bass duo collaboration, as well as improvisations with Corey Fogel and other guests.

Corey Fogel will present a new score for a vibraphone, accompanied by pairs of guitars, drumsets, and brass.

a description and some bios:

Jack and Ben Wright:
This duo didn't begin when Ben was in the womb, but it could have, given the close playing between father and son. Many parent musicians find their children are interested in a different music, and that was true for Ben's teenage years. But for the last twenty years (Ben is 45) they have been on the same path of acoustic improvisation, playing as regularly as possible, given the distance between them. Their new album for Relative Pitch Records, As If Anything Could Be The Same will tour fourteen Westcoast cities in Jan.-Feb.
Described twenty years ago as an "undergrounder by design," Jack Wright has been a saxophone improviser traveling through the US and Europe since the early 80s in search of interesting partners and playing situations. Now at 71, he is still the "Johnny Appleseed of Free Improvisation," as guitarist Davey Williams called him. His range is from fiery, breathless free jazz to quiet, breath-filled, and often animalistic sounds. A reviewer for the Washington Post said, "In the rarefied, underground world of experimental free improvisation, saxophonist Jack Wright is king".

and writings
Ben Wright from Taos, New Mexico plays double bass. He cut his teeth in Philadelphia punk rock, and has since been working the bass for 25 odd years bolstered by intense spats of incidental formal training. A lover of the lowest frequencies, Ben has explored many disparate forms of music, yet always returns to the wellspring of improvisation. Currently, Ben plays with “Wind Up Birds”, “Czech Megaphone,” poet John Biscello, Arctistics, Jack Wright, and assorted eclectic partners locally and nationally. "I play music for the bliss of  that  instant when I lose consciousness of my surroundings,  my instrument, and myself…there is only music. That is the crux where spontaneous creation between performers and audience is conceived."

Corey Fogel (b. 1977) is a drummer and performance artist currently living in Los Angeles, CA. Corey performs and composes in many rock, jazz, noise, folk, and chamber music capacities. His solo work as a composer and performance artist is based around spontaneous encounters with sounds, objects, personalities, textiles, foods, spanning video, dance, and installation.

Corey has been a member of groups: Julia Holter, Missincinatti, The Mae Shi, Gowns, Cryptacize, Barbez, Monstro, The Curtains, Learning Music, Nowcloud, Dominique Leone, 18 Squared. In addition to touring and recording nationally and abroad, Corey has presented his own work with Machine Project, LACMA, Human Resources, The Wulf, The Hammer Museum, and REDCAT.
