Angelica Sanchez - Phillip Greenlief - Sam Ospovat - West Coast Tour Pianist Angelica Sanchez is coming to the west coast for a west-coast tour with Phillip Greenlief and Sam Ospovat - two frequent collaborators. The trio plays improvised music, but not the free-wheeling sounds you would expect from the purveyors of classic free jazz, but rather music that is improvised with a mind for creating spontaneous themes, melodies and forms that the musicians use as a springboard for variation and development. Their music can veer from intense, densely populated layers of melodic interplay, or quiet, sublime sounds that create fascinating textures, and everything in between. The players have enormous ears that are steeped in contemporary music, jazz, and countless other forms and styles - in short, expect the unexpected from this trio of celebrated musicians. ** Angelica Sanchez - piano (New York) ** Phillip Greenlief - alto and tenor saxophones (Oakland) ** Sam Ospovat - drums (France)
