Community Jazz: Turtle Boat

April 4 @ 8:00 pm

FREE | April 4 | Long Street Studio


The name ‘Turtle Boat’ is derived from the Geobukseon of the Joseon Dynasty, and represents a yearning to be free of externally-imposed isolation, and a wrath towards insincerity and apathy everywhere. The group utilizes improvisational vehicles written by Abhilasha Chebolu with additional contributions from saxophonist Alex Burgoyne. Though diverse in experience, the ensemble finds common ground through their shared investment in exploring the more introspective side of free playing. In addition to their capacious listening practice (informed equally by Arvo Pärt, Kazumoto Endo, Thingy, and YMCK as much as Ornette Coleman and Paul Motian), Turtle Boat pursues a generous improvisatory dynamic concerned with playing not what is possible, but what is necessary. Tonight, Turtle Boat will be performing their debut recording “Fear is Heavy, I’ve Got Plans …” in its entirety.
