Event details

Fantastic Merlins are an experimental jazz band featuring tenor saxophone (Nathan Hanson), cello (Jacqueline Ultan), bass (Brian Roessler), and drums (Pete Hennig). Musically they are the spiritual kin of bass sorcerer Fran├žois Rabbath; Albert Ayler's vibrational, gospel-tinged sonorities; Frisell's spacious, meteorological impulses; Sonny Rollins' hopscotch antics; Morricone's redolent lozenges of mood and memory; and 1980s shoot-from-the-hip, NYC-downtown avant-gardisms that ricochet between angular swing and curveball poetics.
