Tom Rainey Trio

KALAMAZOO, Mich.—The Tom Rainey Trio will give a free, public recital Friday, Jan. 26, at Western Michigan University. The show will start at 8 p.m. in the Dalton Center Lecture Hall on Main Campus.

Consisting of Tom Rainey, drums; Ingrid Laubrock, saxophone; and Mary Halverson, guitar, the trio makes refreshingly new music full of momentum and dynamic ranges.

Joseph Woodard, L.A Times, says:

"Tom Rainey is a player who swerves between avant-garde notions and a mainstream sensibility and when he plays the smell of invention is in the air."
