In September 2013, Larry Ochs was in residence at The Stone. On two nights that week he premiered this quintet to enthusiastic acclaim. But most importantly, all five musicians were really excited by what happened at The Stone. The music was on fire, the compositions sparked their imaginations and left plenty of room for continued exploration. Because Ochs lives in San Francisco Bay Area, and busy schedules made it difficult to connect, The Fictive Five didn't perform again until December 2014, immediately followed by a highly focused recording session, and the music from that session was released in October 2015 on Tzadik, the label curated by John Zorn. Bring your imaginations and be ready for anything, and you won’t be disappointed.
