The Liminal Sound Series presents Alex Coke: New Composition with The Mood Illusion February 28, 2017 8pm-12am Carousel Lounge 1110 E 52nd St Austin Tx 78752 (512) 452-6790
In what promises to be a stellar evening of excellent composition and musicianship, sax and flute master Alex Coke performs his own music with Austin's alternative lounge band Mood Illusion at The Carousel Lounge.
A Dallas native and righteous contender in the tough Texas Tenor tradition (whose flute playing makes good argument for a tough Texas flute player poll), Alex Coke's multifarious projects have included studies of Leadbelly and prison work songs, musical meditations on war and peace, an award winning popular post bop band, the Worthy Constituents, as well as a frequent featured soloist with Klezmer, Cuban, Indian and African musicians and a touring and recording member of both Texas' Creative Opportunity Orchestra and Holland's Willem Breuker Kollektief.
The Mood Illusion is a group of musicians that put lounge music through the blender of open improvisation and medieval composition. The core group features Bob Hoffnar on pedal steel guitar, Stephen Bidwell on drums, Mike St Clair on trombone and Janie Cowan on bass.
The lineup for this special evening at Austin's Carousel Lounge includes:
Alex Coke woodwinds/samples
Bob Hoffnar Steel guitar
Stephen Bidwell Drums
Elaine Barber Harp
Ingebrigt Håker Flaten Bass
Janie Cowan Bass
Michael St Clair Trombone
