Event Details

Joseph Daley’s Tuba Trio performs the Tuba Trio Chronicles which explores the improvisational concepts of the visionary composer & multi-instrumentalist Sam Rivers and is dedicated to his memory.

“This music colors/shades, reflects/deflects, echoes/contradicts, calls/responds, parries/thrusts and swirls about in a pastiche of joyous abandon and transcendent expression.” CD Baby

It features Joseph Daley on tuba and euphonium, joined by Warren Smith on a drum set, bass marimba, marimba and a variety of percussion instruments, and Scott Robinson on a variety of reeds including tenor sax, bass sax, a jazzophone, contra alto clarinet and theremin.
