Laurie Frink’s expansive career as a stellar lead player, trumpet technician, and instructional guru is well documented. Lesser known, however, is the substantial amount of private study she quietly undertook concerning improvisation, composition, and electronics. Occasionally we would get a glimpse or hear a snipped after a lesson, but for the most part, she kept this work for herself. In 2003, at the first FONT festival at the now defunct Tonic, Laurie pulled a wildcard on the jazz community. Showing a rarely seen side, she premiered her electronic toolkit by leading a quartet of like-minded improvising trumpeters (and a percussionist), each bringing original compositions specifically arranged for the group. This 2019 reunion group features original members Jesse Neuman and Dave Ballou, and new additions Nadje Noordhuis, Rich Johnson, percussionist Jeff Davis.
9pm – Chloe Rowlands
Chloe Rowlands (tp, fh, effects), Michael Mayo (voc), Roberto Giaquinto (dr), Myles Sloniker (b)
Chloe Rowlands presents a set of new original music paired with compositions by female identifying and queer composers. Featuring Roberto Giaquinto on drums, Myles Sloniker on bass, and Rowlands on trumpet, flugelhorn, and effects.
