Saxophone maestro and certified freak lifer Larry Ochs – Rova’s first album came out in 1978! – has graced stages in the City Beautiful with some regularity of late, as part of the aforementioned Rova Saxophone Quartet
and as part of a trio with guitarist Nels Cline. And with this third return in two years, we’re ready to claim Ochs as an honorary Orlandoan. (Though, sadly, he seems perfectly content being a West Coaster.)


In any case, this week sees Ochs back on familiar ground at the Timucua Arts house with his Fictive Five (Less One Live), a ferocious ensemble that counts among its membership Nate Woolley, Ken Filiano and Harris Eisenstadt. This group combines freeform improvisation, graphic scores and the sublime use of eye contact and subtle hand signals, along with Ochs’ compositions, inspired by non-musical heavies like Wim Wenders and William Kentridge. All to create a sound that swings, surges, jumps and lies in wait for unsuspecting ears. See you at the front.



7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 4 | Timucua Arts Foundation, 2000 S. Summerlin Ave. | timucua.com | $20
