Christian Pincock Quartet/Live Composition Ensemble
Valve trombonist Christian Pincock presents new compositions for two groups: a quartet with saxophonist Greg Sinibaldi, tubist Jon Hansen and drummer Max Wood; and a live composition ensemble of saxophonists Evan Smith, Ivan Arteaga, Adrian Noteboom and Levi Gillis, trombonist David Marriott and percussionists Chris Icasiano, Evan Woodle and Greg Campbell. The quartet features jazz compositions influenced by Latin American rhythms and free improvisation. The live composition ensemble explores the combination of gestures used to organize improvisation combined with pre-conceived structures and compositions.
