Saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock and drummer Tom Rainey are celebrating the release of their second duo recording 'Buoyancy' (Relative Pitch Records) by touring the West Coast. The duo's music draws on ….. for several years and many projects they have shared since they began working together. Their experiences of playing original compositions, free improvisations and even standard songs inform this intimate setting of improvised duets. San Diego’s Mark Dresser, bassist, will join the duo during the second set.
Laubrock is a dauntless player and a sharp conceptualist. The veteran Rainey again proved that he is one of the world’s master drummers in this idiom [...] One dramatic duo composition came to life after the other, the performance audibly impressing a crowd filled with aficionados. With loose-limbed virtuosity, Rainey drew music from all parts of his kit—rubbing the drumheads, rustling his sticks and mallets together, even drawing tones from the drum stool; meanwhile, Laubrock summoned an almost theatrical sound, crying, sighing and moaning through her instrument.
