The Tom Varner Quintet (Varner, French horn/composer; Mark Taylor, alto saxophone; Eric Barber, tenor saxophone; Phil Sparks, bass; Byron Vannoy, drums) present a mix of improvisations, new works for quintet and selected works from Tom’s three acclaimed 1990s quintet CD’s, The Mystery of Compassion, Martian Heartache, and Swimming. Also, a couple of new pieces adapted from Tom’s newest recording project, Nine Surprises, a new work for nonet, to be released this Fall.
Each month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded organizations and artists present ten concerts of adventurous and experimental music in the gorgeous Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center: contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics.
