Larry Ochs Sax & Drumming Core was formed in 2000 for a special-invitation performance in San Francisco. The Core’s music is a 21st-century distillation of the songs of American and eastern European blues-shouters, and of traditional chant-singers from Asia and Africa. Saxophonist Larry Ochs, who is best known for his work with the Rova Sax Quartet, leads the group. His credits include projects with Anthony Braxton, John Zorn, and Terry Riley. Drummers Donald Robinson (Miya Masaoka, Cecil Taylor, Paul Plimley) and Scott Amendola (Bill Frisell, Dave Liebman, Nels Cline) are both active players in the Bay Area. Joining this trio are Japanese pianist Satoko Fujii and trumpeter Natsuki Tamura. Fuji combines jazz, contemporary classical, and traditional folk music, and her playing has been compared to Keith Jarrett, Paul Bley, and Marilyn Crispell. Tamura recalls artists as diverse as Lester Bowie, Miles Davis, and Freddie Hubbard. He’s been acclaimed for his expressive voice with its wide range of emotional sounds and tonal distortions.
