Ochs, Robinson onstage2 by Peter Wochniak-26 copy.jpg [6.73 mb]

Performing together in various ensembles since 1991, Ochs and Robinson performed for the first time as a duo in 2011 in their hometown San Francisco Bay Area. At each of the first two concerts, a different recording engineer offered them free access to his studio in the following months. As a result, the duo recorded a new CDs worth of music over that summer, and that is now mastered. That material comprises much of the music they will perform on tour in 2013.

Ochs and Robinson first performed together from 1991 to 1998 in The Glenn Spearman Double Trio. From 1994 to 2002, they worked with bassist Lisle Ellis in the trio What We Live, a band that recorded many CDs and added incredible quests for special concerts/recordings including Dave Douglas, Wadada Leo Smith, Nels Cline, John Zorn, Miya Masaoka, Saadet Turkoz and Chris Brown, among others. From 2000 until 2010 Robinson was part of the Larry Ochs Sax & Drumming Core featuring drummer Scott Amendola, as well as Satoko Fujii and Natsuki Tamura from 2007 - 2010. Throughout all this time, Ochs and Robinson jammed and rehearsed in Robinsons studio, easily done as they live only 15 minutes apart. Thus it seems inevitable that they would eventually - create a special repertoire for this duo.
