Jack Wright (saxophone) and Bob Marsh (violin and electronics)

Location: Bond Chapel (1050 East 59th Street)

These two legends of American improvised music have been playing together since 1986. Original, virtuosic, and lyrical, their friendship is evident in their playing, and humor is never far away.

Charlotte Hug (viola), Fred Lonberg-Holm (cello), Lou Mallozzi (turntables, spoken word, and assorted devices)

Location: Bond Chapel (1050 East 59th Street)
Admission: free
This trio could be named after the ? '70s action film classic Three the Hard Way. Any one of them could hold down the fort solo. Together they constitute a triple threat. All have worked extensively as composer-performers in solo and ensemble settings. This to say, these are not timid souls. As an evening of improvised music, there will be sparks, and there will be combustion.
