James Sanders' Proyecto Libre
James Sanders' Proyecto Libre
With Proyecto Libre, Sanders combines his Dominican roots and command of Latin jazz with Improvised Music, bringing musicians from both genres together in a freewheeling musical experiment.

Edward Wilkerson - Tenor Saxophone
Harrison Bankhead - Double Bass
Avreeayl Ra - Drums
Jean-Christophe Leroy - Conga & Latin Percussion
James Sanders - Violin/Leader

"When Wilkerson’s sax brewed intensely meditative passages, crying out languorously up to the sky, the haunting beauty of Bankhead’s and Abrams’ bass arco settled in over everything. And when Sanders’ violin was streaking across the scene like lightning unbottled, it was Ra’s sympathetic cymbal crashes that kept things grounded… no different when Ra and Leroy drew some thunder of their own when Sanders’ violin settled into a state of tranquility. This was a performance where the gentle comedowns of melody behaved as a sunrise quietly dispelling the long night’s madness." - Bird is the Worm
