Scot Ray Quintet at Spruce Street Forum, San Diego
Saturday December 1st / 8pm
Nels Cline - guitar/loopage
Jeff Gauthier - violin
Steuart Liebig - bass/(some) loopage
Alex Cline - drums/percussion
Scot Ray - trombone/compositions
An evening of extreme-jazz, avant-funk, liquid-americana and skronk-blues experimentation!
The LA Weekly extols, "Scot Ray is a trombonist with an exciting new plan. Ray veers from
texture to texture, form to form, but with enough structure to keep everything from rolling
off the table. The scattering and unifying drum opportunities surely appeal to percussionist
Alex Cline. The intuitive relation to scored line and eventual improvisation is violinist
Gauthier's forte. Bassist Liebig will dig deep into Ray's intermittent grooves, then generate
waves of noise that'll scare a moose. And guitarist Nels Cline loves playing those tight
unison lines and fogging out the big clouds of electronic atmosphere that Ray demands and
helps create. Ray has also played in the Brian Setzer Orchestra. But anyone expecting swing
revivals here will weep bitter tears."
