descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Since the late fifties, Ornette Coleman's music has inspired many projects. The music of Cylinder shares Ornette's now-iconic chordless instrumentation (trumpet-reeds-bass-drums) - but the novelty here is in the way the harmolodic concept of the master saxophonist is applied through inventive compositions and creative musical structures. Darren Johnston, Aram Shelton, Lisa Mezzacappa and Kjell Nordeson do this with their own voices, not passively reproducing Ornette's free jazz of the past - "Cylinder," the album, is molded in history, but it's not nostalgic.

The members of this quartet, who each compose for the group, come not only from diverse geographical origins (Ontario, Florida, New York and Stockholm, all converging in San Francisco), but also from different practices in jazz and improvisation. We can find Johnston in avant-garde excursions and in straight-ahead contexts, and that says much about his personality. Shelton can be simultaneously lyrical and abrasive, making it impossible to attach his personal style with a specific jazz branch. Mezzacappa is oriented for a cross-current, going from jazz to chamber music to sound art. Nordeson is involved in many experimental and free-improvising bands, and composes for dance and intermedia art.

This is music of the future made present, fresh compositions and bold musicianship heralding a new wave of creative music emerging from the West Coast."-Clean Feed Records

She founded the Monday Makeout creative music series in the Mission District of San Francisco, and programs the Best Coast Jazz Composers series as a member of the artistic committee San Francisco's Center for New Music. In 2012 she started the "Festival-of-Us," a semi-annual festival celebrating Bay Area creative jazz and improvised music. Recent projects include an avant-folk string band, the Interlopers; Eartheaters, a trio with Brooklyn vocalist Fay Victor; and BODABODA, a cross-planetary collaboration with Venice reed player/composer Piero Bittolo Bon. In fall 2015 she premieres Glorious Ravage, a multi-media song cycle for large ensemble with commissioned films, inspired by the writings of Victorian lady adventurers.

Lisa has been artist-in-residence at Djerassi Resident Artists Program (2008, 2013), Headlands Center for the Arts (2006, 2015), the Banff International Jazz Workshop (2000), and the Painted Bride Arts Center (2000).
