Free-jazz wildman and saxophonist Larry Ochs is returning to the City Beautiful soon with his Fictive Five ensemble, an all-star brigade of savvy players that includes Nate Woolley and Harris Eisenstadt. Ochs has become a thankfully familiar face on Orlando stages, appearing in the last couple of years with Nels Cline and his most famous ensemble, the Rova Saxophone Quartet.

Fictive Five is a relatively newer outlet for Ochs  a free-jazz lifer since the late 1970s with Rova – combining improv and Ochs-led compositions all with an unmistakable swing. Newer work from the group is inspired by visual artist William Kentridge and filmmakers Wim Wenders and Kelly Reichardt.

The Fictive Five play the Timucua Arts Foundation on Wednesday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased here.
