This week, three acts of virtuosi instrumentalists transcending the tradition of avant jazz. Dudes With Trowels return, cloaked in anonymity, with their subversive double-drumkit/double-contraptions, augmented by guitarist extraordinaire, Steve Magnusson. Master guitarist Ren Walters is joined by adventurous altoist, Scott McConnachie, for a debut duo. And the incredible bassist, Anita Hustas performs a rare solo set incorporating preparations and objects.
