Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Ingrid Laubrock/Tom Rainey

When: Thu., May 15, 9 p.m. 2014

Saxophonist/composer Ingrid Laubrock is right at home with the avant-garde. Her past few recordings range from the methodically thoughtful jazz piece “Tex and Clemente” (from Ingrid Laubrock Anti-House), to the ambient soundscape “Glasses” (from the Ingrid Laubrock Octet’s release Züric Concert). Laubrock’s style has a sparse laid-back identity that is sleepy without being boring. Her current tour is in support of And Other Desert Towns, which consists of 10 improvisations with percussionist Tom Rainey. Expect subdued, scuffling, muffled sax playing accompanied by scattered, brushed drumming on “Lost Creek,” and desolate romantic soloing on “Painted Cave.” “Summerland” is a warm reed-biting mini-explosion that should fit right in with our overdue turn of weather.
