O’s Notes: Rich Halley (sax, fl, perc) leads a quartet that includes drummer Carson Halley, Michael Vlatkoclvich (tb, perc) and Clyde Reed on bass. They are inspired by Sun Ra and the harmonically layered free jazz that has been a part of Rich’s 30+ year career. They use a wide array of percussive elements to add contrasting views. Shed your common theories to embrace their creative juice. Halley and his band composed all music.
