Wayne Horvitz, Briggan Krauss, and Lê Quan Ninh perform at The Chapel Performance Space at Good Shepher Center Thursday night as the Earshot Jazz Spring Series continues strong.
Keyboardist Wayne Horvitz, alto saxophonist Briggan Krauss, and percussionist Lê Quan Ninh, make up a diverse and crackling trio. Their set sparked and crackled with energy and yet I loved the quiet spaces setting it off. Ninh is a classically trained percussionist and veteran of contemporary music and percussion ensembles in Europe and North America. As an improviser, Ninh works in forms that mix improvised acoustic and electro-acoustic music, dance, poetry, experimental cinema, and photography. Krauss is a New York based saxophonist, composer, and sound artist, and is also a founding member of the bizarre and wonderful ensemble Sex Mob. Krauss has a strong musical relationship with Horvitz, working together in the Trio KVH with Vancouver percussionist Dylan Van Der Schyff. As ever, Horvitz brought his signature wit, intelligence, and adventurousness to the trio. The band was perfectly suited for the intimate Chapel Performance Space.
