Bill Horvitz is probably best known as a guitarist who loved to push boundaries, an improviser who artfully melded traditional and extended techniques to coax a vast array of sounds and textures out of his instrument. As jazz critic Chris Kelsey wrote in his liner notes, “The art of northern California-based guitarist/composer Bill Horvitz acknowledges and incorporates elements from every musical form that’s penetrated his soul.”
Out by Five (Jon Raskin – saxophones, Garth Powell – drums and George Cremaschi – bass) is reuniting to celebrate their long friendships and musical associations with guitarist Bill Horvitz, Out by Five founder who passed away earlier this year. They will be joined by guests Tim Perkis- electronics and Greg Goodman – piano, among other close friends of Bill, including Moe Staiano (percussion) playing an opening solo and Steve Adams (saxophones)/Scott Walton (bass) duo.
