Another Realm consists of pianist and reed player Hankus Netsky, flutist/composer Linda Chase, bassist Kim Cass, and percussionist Tupac Mantilla. On this occasion, they will also be joined by vocalist Rebecca Rubin. Together, the group explores a repertoire that includes pieces from South American, Eastern European, Asian, and Jewish traditions, jazz standards, music of romantic and impressionist European composers, poetry-based improvisations, and original songs and compositions.
