This Saturday, April 13, the free improvising super group Crump/Laubrock/Smythe returns to The Jazz Gallery stage to celebrate the release of their newest album, Channels (Intakt). Featuring bassist Stephan Crump, saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock, and pianist Cory Smythe, the trio began working together in 2015 and released their debut studio album, Planktonic Finales (Intakt) in 2017. This new record showcases their ever-deepening rapport, as it documents a live performance at Hamburg, Germany’s unerhört!-Festival in December 2017.

Before coming out to the Gallery for an evening of intrepid spontaneous composition, stream the track “Medium” from the trio’s new album.

Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $25 general admission ($10 for members), $35 reserved cabaret seating ($20 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
