The ever-evolving, often morphing duo B. Experimental Band continues its bi-monthly residency at Temescal Arts Center next month — on Sat eve, we play a long-form version of the Art Ensemble's masterpiece, People in Sorrow, and reprise a shorter version for SF Music Day the following afternoon. An exciting part of leading this band is how we are able to expand, contract and shapeshift the ensemble to suit different repertoire and contexts: we are super excited to bring this group of stellar humans/musicians together to celebrate the Art Ensemble's vision, 50 years after their seminal recording.
