DAVE GROSS/LIZ TONNE: Performing Tonight at 7:30
sed10in01 | Released in 2003 | 500 copies | $7MP3s
A tour document highlighting two exemplary excursions by these leading Boston improvisors. Gross(reeds) and Tonne(voice) teamed up in their hometown of Boston in the Spring of 2001 for their first ever duo performance. Based on the success of this one date Gross invited Tonne to join him on the southern part of his two month tour across the US later that year. They gave six performances in as many cities. This 10" documents two exceptional and unedited improvisations from Atlanta and Houston. Labeled as "One of Boston's steadfast explorers," by Bob Blumenthal of the Boston Globe, saxophonist David Gross has been transforming the saxophone, for nearly a decade, into exactly what it is: a metal tube with keys, mouthpiece, and a reed. Liz Tonne is a vocal artist inspired by the unorthodox use of the human voice. Her work explores the infinite possibilities of the human voice, unmodified by electronic effects and typically without amplification.
