Chris Stover’s Acquired Involuntary Narcissism

Seattle trombone giant Chris Stover returns from New York with his band Acquired Involuntary Narcissism, playing his original compositions as well as “recompositions” of music by Elvis Costello, Bob Marley, and Johannes Brahms. It’s a mix of new and old music, covering a wide range of expressive ground: lush, lyrical textures; far-reaching dissonances, subtly shifting compositional processes, and powerful grooves. With Stuart MacDonald, Steve Treseler, Eric Barber, James DeJoie (reeds); Greg Lyons, Thomas Marriott, Al Keith (trumpets); Andy Clausen, Nelson Bell (trombones); Bill Anschell, John Silverman, Greg Williamson (rhythm).
