phillip greenlief (b. 1959, los angeles)

Since his emergence on the west coast in the late 1970s, Evander Music founder and saxophonist Phillip Greenlief has achieved international critical acclaim for his recordings and performances with musicians and composers in the post-jazz continuum as well as new music innovators and virtuosic improvisers. He has performed and recorded with Fred Frith, Meredith Monk, Nels Cline, and They Might Be Giants; albums include THAT OVERT DESIRE OF OBJECT with Joelle Leandre, and ALL AT ONCE with FPR (Frank Gratkowski, Jon Raskin, Phillip Greenlief). Recent residencies have included Headlands Center for the Arts and from 2012 to 2014 he was the curator at Berkeley Arts, a home for progressive music. He is the recipient of a San Francisco Bay Guardian Goldie Award.

“The Bay Area’s do-it-yourself ethos has produced a bevy of dazzlingly creative musicians, but few have put the philosophy to work as effectively as Phillip Greenlief.” – Andrew Gilbert, San Francisco Chronicle (

Kyle Stant (Flute, Fajra)

“..Most of my work focuses on blending my expression with the full sound entering my ears in the present moment. Very deep listening matching pitch and rhythm with “noise,” pulling music out of noise, balancing and nestling as deep as possible in the line between noise and music. The Abstract contains all representations/possibilities. More difficult to work with, but containing far more potential for vividity, profundity, power…when fully grasped.”
