Celebrating Elliott Sharp's 70th Birthday!

With his improvising trio Aggregat, E# on saxophones and bass clarinet reveals a deep familiarity with jazz history and practice but also dives headlong into a futuristic approach, shredding tradition while acknowledging it. Aggregat's rhythm section of Brandon Lopez on bass and Don McKenzie on drums is powerful and supple. The music that E# has composed for this formation is his most explicitly jazzy set to date with sounds ranging from solid swing to skittering high-velocity textures.
