Recorded live at Kenny Dorham's Backyard venue in Austin Texas on March 27th 2019 for the Jazz OUTside series. This is improvised music that will appeal to fans of Jazz, Avant Garde, Beyond Jazz and Free Jazz, etc.
Recored on a portable recorder using the recorders built in microphones. – It was such a fun performance we thought we should release it for others to enjoy. Our previous announced release Narratives Vol. 2 will be out later in the year.
Dark Matter Horns was formed in 2017 when Oteri switched his focus from guitar to tenor sax and flute. They perform once a month at Kenny Dorham's Backyard in Austin Texas for the Jazz OUTside series, Austin's longest running Jazz series that focuses on the more adventurous side of Jazz.
Kenny Dorham's Backyard, named for the legendary jazz trumpeter and East Austinite, is a beautiful outdoor venue run by the Non-Profit group Diverse Arts Culture Works, located in the heart of Austin's East End.

Deane and others. 1999s Jazz Gunn Concepts of MateMaToot featured A-Team players Brannen Temple, Michael Malone, Chris Maresh, and second guitarist Chris Tondre, the uniquely original 2003 release Spiral Out produced by Ronan Chris Murphy which featured prog rockers Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto and Mike Keneally in a free improvised jazz setting with trumpet master Ephraim Owens, two critically acclaimed Avant-Garde WD-41 albums followed with electric trumpet player Dave Laczko, the second incorporating the talents of Dino J.A.
