Extreme New York tenor saxophone quartet Battle Trance, led by virtuoso sax experimentalist Travis LaPlante and including longtime Bay Area resident Matt Nelson, makes its Bay Area debut with a complete performance of its acclaimed new recording, Palace of Wind, out on New Amsterdam Records.

The Dirty Snacks Ensemble, led by Oakland composer and vibraphonist Mark Clifford, opens the evening, with lush pop-inflected chamber music that combines thoughtfully-constructed long form compositions with far-ranging improvisational possibility, informed by influences ranging from Kool Keith to Bela Bartok.  More...
