[INTERPRETATIONS] Steve Swell & Omar Tamez / Douglas R. Ewart Inventions Ensemble

Steve Swell and Omar Tamez pay homage to Tamez’s father Nicandro Tamez, a prolific yet unsung Mexican composer in the avant garde tradition, and Swell premieres his new long-form work “Composite #8″,  with Omar Tamez (guitar) Steve Swell (trombone) Darius Jones (alto) Jonathan Golove (cello) James Ilgenfritz (bass). Renowned composer and multi-instrumentalist Douglas Ewart presents Water is Tops, using sound, spoken word, and movement arts to explore the sonic, ritual, philosophical aspects of water, with multi-instrumentalist J.D. Parran, dancer/choreographer Ni’ja Whitson, and others.
