Jorrit Dijkstra’s Improvisation Pool

The Improvisation Pool is back! Started in Cambridge around 2003, The Improvisation Pool is an ongoing series of musical gatherings between a selection of improvisors from the vibrant Boston improvisation community, plus sometimes an out-of-town guest.

Curated and overseen by saxophonist Jorrit Dijkstra, these musicians will confront each other in short duet, trio and quartet improvisations, culminating in a grand finale.

Hush Point - John McNeil (trumpet), Jeremy Udden (alto saxophone), Aryeh Kobrinsky (bass), Anthony Pinciotti (drums)

A modern take on West Coast Jazz of the 50's hints at the chordless quartets of Ornette as much as Chet Baker/Gerry Mulligan.  The group is touring in support of their recent release "Blues and Reds" on Sunnyside (NYC).  "On it's second superb album, this New York quartet continues to invoke it's moniker... delving into deeply interactive improvisation that doesn't need to shout to be heard."  4.5 Stars (DOWNBEAT)
