    The Few & In The Sea w/Tristan Honsiger

    $10
    Tristan Honsinger started improvising in Montreal more than forty years ago, prior to his decisive move to Europe, where he's been at the centre of improvised music activity ever since. With his two Montreal-based counterparts here, this group represents an oblique sort of homecoming. Their rapport is obvious, the results a satisfying mixture of musical empathy and creative conflict. Tristan plays with characteristic daring from his reserves of readymade tune fragments and shards of poetry, heading straight into the protean unknown that is the foundation for the best group improvising. Josh Zubot and Nicolas Caloia don't merely follow him there, but provoke him – and each other – in ways that are by turns, subtle, assertive, and irreverent. The Few opens - a Chicago-based string trio that should provide the perfect counterpoint to In The Sea.
