The four horsemen of Sõ Percussion go toe-to-toe with heavyweights of improvised music
Bobby Previte's luminous masterpiece, Terminals
Featuring John Medeski, Nels Cline, Zeena Parkins and Greg Osby
"Previte's ensembles speak in visionary tongues." — The New Yorker
Drummer, composer, bandleader and tireless improviser Bobby Previte is known for his voluminous contributions to New York's legendary downtown experimental music scene — an immensely fertile period in the 1980s that saw the likes of Steve Reich and Philip Glass breaking new ground with John Zorn, Ornette Colemans Prime Time and many more.
For his latest outing, Previte has assembled a dream team of experimental musicians from the jazz, indie rock, and classical worlds to create Terminals, a luminous project consisting of five concertos for percussion ensemble and soloists, with each piece inspired by the schematic-like terminal maps that Previte has noticed in airports around the world. The eternally adventurous Sõ Percussion performs throughout, as Nels Cline (Wilco), Zeena Parkins, Greg Osby and John Medeski (Medeski Martin & Wood) take turns in the forefront to deliver an electrifying part-composed, part-improvised opus that stretches over two vinyl pieces.
