A superb West Coast sextet ensemble led by reedist Vinny Golia with long-time associates, many from the California Institute of the Arts, performing Golia's complex and exuberant compositions.
Golia, Vinny Sextet
Abstractions And Retrocausalities
Label: Nine Winds
Released in: USA
"The West Coast ias an amazing place to live, it affords the luxury of experimentation. Our West Coast players rival any of the players throughout the world for the imagination, dexterity, reading abilities and commitment. This ensemble has been together for many years in various forms since its first incarnations as "Jazz for Model's"; an ensemble never recorded, but the seeds were sown, germinating and transitioning to give rise to this CD. A quintet version of this group recorded in 2008 and was released as a download only project on the now defunct Redline Park label. An earlier version of music for sextet was made available for free at vinnygolia.com, and now we have this document of a well seasoned working group.
Common threads from previous sextet project are the superb alto saxophonist, Gavin Templeton, guitarist Alex Noyce and Andrew Lessmann on drums, trumpet player Dan Rosenboom was added to expand the quintet and Jon Armstrong a tenor saxophonist following in the footsteps of Andrew White and Wilton Felder was the last piece of the puzzle on electric bass. All of these fantastic musicians are the product of the California Institute of the Arts where I first met them."-Vinny Golia, 2011
