|IVORY BILL with DAN PLONSEY
Dan Plonsey, an outstanding member of the San Francisco Bay Area's improvisational jazz scene, writes in his liner notes: "Ivory Bill is the first of a planned three volumes of saxophone music. This first volume presents 22 relatively short pieces based upon at least 14 compositional and improvisational methods. The music of Ivory Bill could be taken a series of loosely-related short stories. The tightness of the focus within each individual composition and indeed the scope of the entire project owes much to the work of Anthony Braxton: his design of music based upon categorization of saxophone "languages" has led to an incredible array of diverse musical happenings."
