April 22, 1988
A presentation in collaboration with ICA, LACE and Meet the Composers/California of new and experimental music by many of the nation’s most significant composers and composer performers. Joseph Paul Taylor’s solo for electronic keyboards and voice are concerned with the emotional equivalent of plot. Trombonist Jim Staley, guitarist Bill Frisell and drummer Ikue Mori have developed a style that is at once terse and elegantly executed. Leroy Jenkins, violinist and composer, has continually invented his own language in music with an extraordinary intermeshing of jazz and classical styles.
