These are videos that I like: Jonathan Rowden WYR Terranigma


Today’s featured video comes courtesy of saxophonist Jonathan Rowden and his new ensemble WYR.  On successive nights in September of last year, they performed entirely improvised pieces.  The second night’s show was at the Blue Whale in Downtown Los Angeles, CA, and it resulted in the recording Terranigma.

This is the video of that performance.

Your video personnel:  Jonathan Rowden (tenor & soprano saxophones, electronic effects, sampling), Areni Agbabian (prepared piano, voice), Joanna Wallfisch (voice, electronic effects), Chris Wabich (drums, percussion, Fender Rhodes) and James Yoshizawa (drums, percussion).

You can hear more from each performance and purchase them at Rowden’s Bandcamp page.

And both Terranigma and its counterpart Nova were yesterday’s daily recommendation.  Follow the LINK to read more.
