Marilyn Crispell & David Rothenberg

Clarinetist and alchemist of natural sounds Rothenberg teams up with Crispell, one of the greatest of all contemporary improvising pianists whom the New York Times described as “an active volcano.” An ECM recording artist, she has recorded nearly a hundred records under her own name and as part of groups led by Anthony Braxton, Reggie Workman, and Barry Guy. David Rothenberg has released six albums under his own name, and he’s played with Hamid Drake, Glen Velez, and the Karnataka College of Percussion. Lately he’s been jamming with lyrebirds in the Australian rain forest, and will bring some of the spirit of that work to this concert.
