Paul Plimley, Clyde Reed, Kenton Loewen
NOW Orchestra co-founding pianist Paul Plimley (Lisle Ellis, Joe McPhee, Scott Amendola) is a joyful tornado of avant-improvisation, modal melodic manipulations, and sharp neo-classicism. “With a stylistic range that recalls the explosiveness and tonal freedom of Cecil Taylor as well as the introspection of Paul Bley” (AllMusic) Plimley is the embodiment of passionate and forward-thinking creative improvisation. Known for his work with Claude Ranger, The NOW Orchestra, and George Lewis, Vancouver bassist Clyde Reed is the consummate collaborator, while JUNO Award winner Kenton Loewen (Peregrine Falls, Haram) is an intense, cutting-edge drummer who blurs the lines between jazz and rock.
