    OTS SFO #020 with Levi Gillis

    With several past episodes recorded from Seattle, we return to a previously unreleased conversation (2018) with saxophonist, improviser, and band leader, Levi Gillis (now Los Angeles based).

    We celebrate  Levi’s avant jazz/post rock outfit Hunter Gather.  Their release, ‘Getting to Know You’, is an up close and personal journey into delicate improvisation.  Evoking minimalism, americana, baroque, and vivid cinematic indie rock, this recording has won great praise.
