Brooklyn, NY: Roulette presents The Renga Ensemble playing music from their recently released recording "The Room Is", Wednesday, March 4, 8pm. This presentation will also feature several premiere of new compositions leader James Falzone has created especially for their nine-city US tour. Tickets can be purchased at: http://roulette.org/events/james-falzone-renga-ensemble/

Featuring James Falzone: Bb and Eb clarinets, Ned Rothenberg: Bb clarinet, alto saxophone, Ken Vandermark: Bb clarinet, bass clarinet, baritone saxophone, Keefe Jackson: tenor saxophone, bass clarinet, contra Bb bass clarinet, Jason Stein: bass clarinet, Ben Goldberg: Bb clarinet, contra Eb alto clarinet, The Renga Ensemble's inspiration was derived from a brazenly clear haiku by American poet Anita Virgil. The ensemble, a gathering of six of the most adventurous and diverse clarinetists/saxophonists working in jazz and improvised music today, is named after a centuries old Japanese poetic practice where two or three poets blend their words into a single meditative work, is rooted in the personal voice of each member and the fertile ground that grows between the composed and the improvised.

Ned Rothenberg: Bb clarinet, alto saxophone
Ken Vandermark: Bb clarinet, bass clarinet, baritone saxophone
Keefe Jackson: tenor saxophone, bass clarinet, contra Bb bass clarinet
