Ingrid Laubrock Quintet
Ars Nova Workshop is proud to welcome the Ingrid Laubrock Quintet.
An award-winning composer and performer, Laubrock’s style “balances impulsive spontaneity with a structural cohesiveness that occasionally sounds surreal; each of her sophisticated pieces embodies its own distinctive sound world” (Point of Departure). This new group performs Laubrock's latest compositions, written specifically for this cast of hand-picked musicians, all of whom have established themselves as great improvisers and interpreters of creative new music alike. Featuring saxophonist Tim Berne, trombonist Ben Gerstein, tubist Dan Peck and drummer Tom Rainey, the collective experience of the members includes work with Anthony Braxton, Henry Threadgill, Jason Moran, Carmen McRae, Anita Baker, Bill Frisell, Julius Hemphill, Joe Lovano, John Abercrombie, John Zorn, Dave Liebman, Kronos Quartet, Alarm Will Sound and many others.

ANW informs, inspires, and challenges listeners to elevate the role of jazz, improvisation, and experimental music in contemporary culture. ANW events provide a forum for discourse, emergent trends in contemporary music, and unique forms of cultural exchange, while nurturing a diverse community for innovative music.
