Registrato il 25 aprile 2013 al Forte Fanfulla a Roma, va in onda domani sera a Radiotre Suite Jazz il bel concerto in duo di Larry Ochs (sassofoni) e Donald Robinson (batteria). Alle ore 22.50.

The California contemporary creative music performers and composers Larry Ochs (soprano and tenor saxophones) and Donald Robinson (drums) have been highly active contributors to the West Coast music scene for over 30 years. They first performed together from 1991 to 1998 in the Glenn Spearman Double Trio. From 1994 to 2002, they worked with ex-Montreal bassist Lisle Ellis in the trio What We Live, a band that recorded many CDs and added incredible quests for special concerts/recordings including Dave Douglas, Wadada Leo Smith, Nels Cline, John Zorn, Miya Masaoka, Saadet Türköz and Chris Brown, among others. From 2000 until 2010, Robinson was part of the Larry Ochs Sax & Drumming Core featuring drummer Scott Amendola, Satoko Fujii and with Natsuki Tamura from 2007-2010. Throughout all this time, Ochs and Robinson jammed and rehearsed in Robinson’s studio, easily done as they live only 15 minutes apart. Thus, it seems inevitable that they would eventually create a special repertoire for this duo. So it goes, it is only since 2011 that they began the successful duo collaboration that has been touring last year in Europe, Canada and North America.
