Rova Orkestrova: No Favorites!

Read "No Favorites!" reviewed by Troy Collins

Ever since its formation in 1977, Rova, the pioneering West Coast saxophone quartet, has been augmenting its ranks to explore structured improvisation. No Favorites! pays homage to Lawrence D. “Butch" Morris, the inventor of Conduction, a revolutionary system for organizing large-ensemble improvisation using coded gestures. This ambitious album epitomizes a working relationship that Rova began with ...


Rova Channeling Coltrane: Electric Ascension

Read "Electric Ascension" reviewed by John Sharpe

John Coltrane's Ascension (Impulse, 1965) stands as a seminal moment in the development of modern jazz, presenting structured large group improvisation which renounced both the form and content of almost all previous models. It was never performed live, and this was one of the facts which initially captured the attention of the now venerable ROVA Saxophone ...

Jon Raskin and Clara Harryman: Open Box

Read "Open Box" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Among the varied collaborations between poets and musicians, or the adaptation of poetry to music, the setting of Carla Harryman's genre-busting poetry to improvised music by ROVA Saxophone Quartet's Jon Raskin is outstanding. Not only because of Harryman's avant-garde poetic language--often focusing on the language itself, its contradictions and shortcomings--subverting its attempts to capture the fleeting ...


Various Artists: Earth Music - Ten Years of Meridian Music: Composers in Performance

Read "Earth Music - Ten Years of Meridian Music: Composers in Performance" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

Earth Music commemorates a decade of musical art presentations by the forward-thinking Bay Area Gallery founded on and operating under the firm conviction that significant art increases social, philosophical and spiritual change. It seems popular now to support the new music, which by those two words seems to imply--and this is becoming odious too--the entire artistic ...
