Experimental jazz featuring Evan Lipson (bass), Jack Wright (saxophone), and Zachary Darrup (guitar).
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 72, he is well known for having brought improvised music into the heartland of America at a time when it was totally unknown. His musical range is as wide as his explorations, from fiery, breathless free jazz to quiet, breath-filled, and often animalistic sounds.
Zachary Darrup is an improvising guitarist currently living in Philadelphia. His techniques are informed by the musical possibilities of film language, jovial mockery and mimicry of plants, animals, and audience members, thoughtful room listening, word-play, colors, and culinary experiments.
Evan Lipson has been active as a musician since adolescence. His formative experiences were in underground rock, modernist composition, freak pop, jazz, noise, as well as various modes of improvisation. Lipson cultivates a palpably intense and vehemently iconoclastic body of music, as exemplified by too long a list of notable groups, but including Satanized and Normal Love.
