Description

Rod Plays Rod Plays Oakes on CD

OGOGO was formed in 1993 by Igor and Rod Oakes. Initially, it was a duo with Igor performing on guitar and Oakes on MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) trombone. The duo specialized in improvised music utilizing extended guitar techniques and synthesizers controlled by trombone. The results of this collaboration can be heard on Live in Your Bedroom (innova CD 521). By the late 90s, the duo became larger for various concerts and performances. The addition of bass and drums, with Daren Burns and Dan Savell performing, worked well for everyone, and OGOGO frequently performs in this configuration. The group is especially adept at performing avant-garde jazz and free improvisational works. All four of these musicians are also excellent performers of straight ahead jazz, and the group also is heard in concert performing jazz standards. The group got together for this CD to record the jazz songs that Rod Oakes has been writing ever since the early 1970s. Many of these songs were composed for musicals with Larry Heimgartner. A number of songs recorded here are from Grab the Ring, the first musical these two created in 1976. Enchanted Place is from The Hatchling, one of the numerous musicals the team has written for children. Featuring OGOGO Rod Oakes, trombone Igor, guitar Daren Burns, bass Dan Savell, drums.
