The Free Sound Ahn-somble to Feature Guest Artist Samia in Jazz Concert, 4/15
The Free Sound Ahn-somble, the resident jazz ensemble of Tenth Intervetion, is set to perform on April 15 with an appearance by guest artisti Samia.
With all the traditional elements of a big band, along with the modern and diverse compositional style of Dorian Wallace, The Free Sound Ahn-somble delivers an experience that is improvisational, honest, and from the heart.
The Free Sound Ahn-somble combines the styles of 20th/21st Century composers (Igor Stravinsky, Arnold Schoenberg) alongside fusion groove masters (Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman). Wallace's music, while complex, is accessible to audiences new to jazz, contemporary classical, avant-garde, and improvisatory art music.
The innovative, 17-piece jazz ensemble is under the direction of composer/pianist Dorian Wallace. With traditional elements of a true big band and the modern and diverse compositional style of Wallace, Dorian Wallace and The Free Sound Ahn-somble provides both an enjoyable and educational experience for the jazz novice and a challenging and surprising experience for more seasoned listeners.
The Free Sound Ahn-somble is the resident jazz ensemble of TENTH INTERVENTION, a new music consortium "of progressive-minded players and groups looking to dispense with some rules." (Time Out NY).
