Brooklyn, NY: Roulette presents Peter Gordon's Love of Life Orchestra on Wednesday, June 5 at 8pm. The Love of Life orchestra (LOLO) will perform Symphony #5 which emphasizes the orchestral dimension of the Love of Life Orchestra. Symphony #5, a new work, is a culmination of work Peter Gordon has been composing over the past 5 years in a multimovement format. It is compositionally intricate, at the same time allowing for the musical personae of the musicians to come forth.
Peter Gordon's Love of Life Orchestra is know for layering lyricism and complexity over funky grooves, with tight ensemble playing interwoven with sharp improvisation. Featuring Peter Gordon (sax, organ ) who will be joined by LOLO veterans Peter Zummo (trombone), Ned Sublette (guitar), and Randy Gun (guitar), with Max Gordon (trumpet) and Paul Shapiro (saxes) and the Afro-Cuban jazz powerhouses Robby Ameen (piano), Yunior Terry (bass) and Elio Villafranca (piano) Katie Porter (Clarinet). With video by Kit Fitzgerald.
