Since 1971, when multi-instrumentalist Vinny Golia quit painting to pursue music regular, he spent some time working internationally like a composer, bandleader, and performer in jazz along with other creative musics. Golia pulls affects from jazz, globe music, and modern classical music, and it has performed in European countries, Japan, and THE UNITED STATES in a variety of ensembles. He takes on 20 different woodwinds (in addition to some cultural aerophones), has positioned many times within the Downbeat critic’s poll on numerous devices, and in 1990 received the Jazz Occasions’ Talent Deserving Wider Acknowledgement award for his bass saxophone playing. Golia can be involved in additional arts and press besides jazz and improvised music: he offers made up for ballet, contemporary dance works, theatre, video, and movies such as for example Serpent’s Lair and Bloodstream and Cement. Golia’s label, Nine Winds Information (created in 1977), targets liberating music from North America’s Western Coast.
