Bass Ensemble

What's better than one double bass? A whole orchestra of them, that's what. This low-end ensemble is spearheaded by Tetsu Saitoh, a versatile player who emerged from the '70s free jazz scene but later branched out into tango, contemporary classical and collaborations with traditional East Asian musicians. He's joined on by four adept bass improvisers – Pearl Alexander, Takashi Seo, Kazuhiro Tanabe and Masao Tajima – while dancers Jean Laurent Sasportes and Jacki Job supply the requisite body contortions.
