Chris Stover's Book of Sand at The Royal Room
Book of Sand will perform a mix of Chris Stover's new and slightly less new music, covering a wide range of expressive ground: lush, lyrical textures; far-reaching dissonances, subtly shifting compositional processes, and powerful grooves. All original compositions along with creative reworkings of music by Elvis Costello, Bob Marley, and Johannes Brahms.
With an all-star cast:
Mark Taylor, Stuart MacDonald, Greg Sinibaldi, James DeJoie (saxophones)
Greg Lyons, Thomas Marriott, Al Keith (trumpets)
David Marriott, Nelson Bell (trombones)
Bill Anschell, John Silverman, Greg Williamson (rhythm)
Chris Stover (trombone, composer, conductor)
Stuart MacDonald's Roosevelt High School band will play a brief opening set.
The Royal Room, 5000 Rainer Ave. S.
