Active Music Series presents Street Priest + Hare and Arrow + Nathan Clevenger Group
Street Priest. Mutual fans of Ronald Shannon Jackson and the Decoding Society playing music that doesn’t sound too much like that band. Noisy, loud, and energetic improvised music with the openness and freedom to explore more reflective, atmospheric, and quiet moments when appropriate. Power trio instrumentation and the idea of a free funk band as a launching pad for textural sound exploration. With Kristian Aspelin, guitar; Matt Chandler, bass; Jacob Felix Heule, drums
Hare and Arrow. A Classification of Chrysanthemums. With Dave Dupuis, Nuns Horn 3 and upright bass; Crystal Pascucci, ozukuri and cello; Sung Kim, the fawn, the hare, and the nuns horn 4.
Nathan Clevenger Group: Preoccupied with with close harmony and a tangled style of counterpoint, Clevenger enjoys pushing what one might call tight, precise Chamber Jazz harmonic/melodic elements through a volatile jazz ensemble. With Kasey Knudsen, alto sax; Cory Wright – bass clarinet, tenor sax; Rebecca Kleinmann, flute, alto flute; Nathan Clevenger, guitar; Sam Bevan, bass; Jon Arkin, drums.
