About Frank Rosaly’s Green and Gold:

Cameron Pfiffner – alto saxophone and flute
Nick Mazzarella – alto saxophone
Tomeka Reid – cello
Anton Hatwich – bass
Frank Rosaly – drums

After rediscovering the music of Prince Lasha and Sonny Simmons, Frank Rosaly became obsessed with their music (both separately and during their collaborations). He decided to transcribe the music from their collaborative years together, specifically focusing on the records the cry and firebirds. With such a collective of unique voices, FRG&G are attempting to play this music, evoking the spirit of the original music while respecting it enough not to simply revive or recreate it.  As the group continues to explore these albums, FRG&G hope to infuse their own ideas and sound into the great body of material given to them by Prince Lasha and Sonny Simmons.
