OCHS – MASAOKA - LEE
SPILLER ALLEY

Larry Ochs
: tenor and sopranino saxophones
Miya Masaoka: koto
Peggy Lee: cello

This music of exquisite sensibilities, profound listening and genuinely laid-back cloth at first throws you; nobody is trying to do anything, just play as together as possible. Nobody gets in anybody’s face, including the listener. Nobody solos more than the depth they listen at; nobody never wanted not to be there…. Anyway if this ingenious blend of scents from Masaoka’s ancient koto, Lee’s middle-European cello and Ochs’ out of hock saxes is any indication, “musica da camera” - that old elite art of chamber music - is going to be around for some time yet. Alvin Curran, excerpt from the liner notes

Recorded on Avril 2006 by Alberto Spezzamonte (Venice, Teatro Fondamente Nuovo, Italy), Wolfgang Obrecht (Munich, Offene Ohren e.V., Germany), Charly Wienand (St Johan, Alte Gerberei, Austri)
