David Witter Quartet (CoMO)
The David Witter Quartet (David Witter-trombone/Nancy Deitz-bass/Greg Aker-saxophone/Connor Kespohl-drums) is made up of musicians active in Columbia, MO. Their music is a mix of free jazz and ambient noise, incorporating acoustic instruments with live looping and guitar pedal effects. For this incarnation, they'll use a book of Ornette Coleman's folks-y melodies as fodder for their own improvisations.
