October 16, 6:00 pm at Gallery at Avalon Island
Timucua Arts Foundation, Gallery at Avalon Island and The Civic Minded 5 present: The In-Between Series, featuring Cortex.
About the Band:
Cortex are part of the Scandinavian renaissance drawing on the ideals of early U.S. free-jazz forms, using the instrumentation of the classic Ornette Coleman Quartet – saxophone, trumpet, double bass and drums. Coleman-esque are their forms based around knotty but catchy post-bop head melodies followed by less idiomatic jazz improvising. There is also an element of now-canonized ESP-Disk impertinence, where dynamics shift vertically to include irregular, and non-blues based sonic clouds.
