Zak-Jak jack wright....saxes zachary darrup.....guitar and objects Described 25 years ago as an "undergrounder by design," Jack Wright is a veteran saxophone improviser based mainly in Philadelphia. Since the early 80s he has been touring through the US and Europe, finding interesting partners and playing situations. Now at 74 he is still the "Johnny Appleseed of Free Improvisation," as he was called back in the 80s, engaged mostly with players outside music school careerdom. His influence has extended through writings; in Jan. 2017 Wright's book was published, The Free Musics. His preferred partners over the years have been mostly unknown to the music press, and too numerous to list here.

He's said to have the widest vocabulary of any, an expert at leaping pitches, punchy, precise timing, sharp and intrusive multiphonics, surprising gaps of silence, and obscene animalistic sounds. A reviewer for the Washington Post said, "In the rarefied, underground world of experimental free improvisation, saxophonist Jack Wright is king." Zachary Darrup is an improvising guitarist currently living in Philadelphia. During his early teenage years in the rural coal region of Pennsylvania a strange boy appeared like an angel, carrying a large cd booklet of wild musics of all sorts. This chance meeting at a pizza shop, plus tumultuous relationships with his home turf, school teachers, and other agents of law and rule enforcement led Zach to drop out and skip town, devoting himself to following music wherever it would take him--somewhere else.
His techniques are informed by the musical possibilities of film language, jovial mockery and mimicry of plants, animals, and audience members, thoughtful room listening, word play, colors, and culinary experiments. =================== with local spitters: Margaret Cox (card reader, tapes, produce, electronics) & Steve Boyle (who even knows) + 1 more $8 suggested donation another Crucible Sound type fill in the blank .
