"Larry Ochs (b. May 3, 1949, New York City) is an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Ochs studied trumpet briefly but concentrated on tenor and sopranino saxophones. He worked as a record producer and founded his own label, Metalanguage Records, in 1978, in addition to operating the Twelve Stars studio in California. He co-founded the Rova Saxophone Quartet, and also worked in Glenn Spearman's Double Trio. A frequent recipient of commissions, he composed the music for the play Goya's L.A. by Leslie Scalapino in 1994 and for Letters Not About Love, which was named best documentary film at SXSW in 1998. He has also played in a new music trio called Room and the What We Live ensemble. He has recorded several albums as a leader. He formed the group Kihnoua in 2007 with vocalist Dohee Lee and Scott Amendola on drums and electronics, which released Unauthorized Caprices in 2010. He is married to the poet Lyn Hejinian."

sample the album:








descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Fall 2016, southwest France. Guided by its owner, Larry Ochs and Gerald Cleaver visit the Portel cave, a Magdalenian painted cave. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, given how few visits are allowed so as not to endanger the parietal works.

The cave paintings' preservation imperatives do not allow for the recording to take place in the cave itself; it took place on the next day, in another cave, similar in its layout, but not painted.

Absolute darkness and silence. Gerald and Larry are still imbued with the eve.

The session was short, incredibly dense. Having given their all, Larry and Gerald were utterly exhausted by the end.

Several years of preparation, intense efforts before, during, and after, two outstanding musicians, Vincent Mahey's sublime work.

The album is unique, the music exceptional."-Michel Dorbon
