Earshot: Hans Koch + Paul Kikuchi’s Portable Sanctuary

Presented by Earshot Jazz Festival.

Swiss reedman Hans Koch, one of the most fearless improvisers in music, performs solo on bass clarinet. Koch left his career as a classical clarinetist and has worked since with Fred Frith, Cecil Taylor, and Andrew Cyrille. Seattle-based percussionist and composer Paul Kikuchi follows with his quartet – trombone maestro Stuart Dempster and fellow percussionist-instrument makers Alexander Vittum and Jesse Olsen.
