Crepuscule Trio + Jesse Canterbury’s Vertigo

A solid working unit for many years but operating under the radar of the mainstream jazz world in the Los Angeles area, the Crepuscule Trio represents the most fundamental and vital aspects and values of what came to be termed “free jazz.” Consisting of three outstanding musicians – saxophonist Ken Kawamura, bassist Anthony Shadduck, and drummer Alan Cook – the trio mines the tradition of the music they know intimately while blasting it open into the realm of spacious and multi-directional musical possibility.

Seattle clarinetist Jesse Canterbury leads Vertigo, an all-acoustic ensemble in a strikingly original mix of chamber music, improvisation, and tune-oriented melodic material informed and inspired by the music of clarinetists Louis Sclavis and Michael Moore.
