Terton: Louie Belogenis, Trevor Dunn, Ryan Sawyer

Terton celebrates the release of its new Tzadik CD, Outer, Inner, Secret.

Terton is

Louie Belogenis: tenor and soprano saxophones

Trevor Dunn: bass

Ryan Sawyer: drums

Remaining true to the alchemical beginner’s mind, Terton is a band that places exploration and improvisation first and foremost. Featuring saxophonist Louie Belogenis, bassist Trevor Dunn, and drummer Ryan Sawyer, the music pushes the envelope of free jazz and points in many directions at once. In Tibetan Buddhism, a terton uncovers and reveals esoteric spiritual teachings currently unknown and unpracticed. Like the teachings referred to, the music here contains similar treasures — a music deeply buried within the human psyche waiting for an opportune time to appear. Louie, Trevor and Ryan mine this hidden terrain with great honesty, imagination, and craft.

Note that this concert will happen downstairs, in the choir room. This concert is in person only and will not stream on YouTube.
