Crepuscule Trio + Vertigo
Presented by Nonsequitur. Operating for many years under the radar of the Los Angeles mainstream jazz world, the Crepuscule Trio represents the most fundamental and vital aspects and values of what came to be termed "free jazz." Saxophonist Ken Kawamura, bassist Anthony Shadduck, and drummer Alan Cook mine the tradition they know intimately while blasting it open into the realm of spacious and multi-directional musical possibility. Seattle clarinetist Jesse Canterbury leads Vertigo, an all-acoustic quartet in a strikingly original mix of chamber music, improvisation, and tune-oriented melodic material.
