Composer and multi-reedist Vinny Golia, a hero of Southern California’s improvised music scene, has turned up the volume with his latest group, a powerhouse sextet of former students that grooves with explosive energy. The musicians Gavin Templeton (alto saxophone), Dan Rosenboom (trumpet), Alex Noice (guitar), Jon Armstrong (electric bass), and Andrew Lessman (drums), artfully inhabit Golia’s witty, irreverent, eclectic compositional world, where shredding guitar solos take their place alongside intricately layered horn lines and collective jazz escapades.
