Part of a double bill with Lucian Ban & Mat Maneri

The Empty Cage Quartet has been consistently praised as one of the most powerful and original new jazz groups to emerge from the American West Coast. For over a decade they have explored new ways to integrate a diverse mix of musical influences, from traditional forms to contemporary experimental practices. The result is a continually evolving, multidimensional approach to jazz and new music performance, improvisational acuity, and compositional craft that Amazing Sounds Magazine has described as an“urban folk music of the future.”
