APEX Live at Tsunami Sushi Tulsa, OK – July 2005

2005, I was in the midst of one of the biggest transitions of my life. Two years earlier, I had been fired from high power job with a large wireless company. My actions deservedly led to this. By 2005 I was accumulating a large amount of debt, working six jobs, and I found myself forming a jazz trio with my cousin Ben and good friend Tim DeMoss. Over the course of our short existence (about 6 months), we recorded many hours of jazz standards and improvisational free jazz. Another local free jazz group named Milk Truck captured one of our live performances, without our planning or knowledge. A few weeks later, we were handed a CD with Set 1 from that show (if anyone has Set 2 please contact me!), what an excellent surprise!! Throughout the last ten years of moving to Portland (and going to work for another large wireless company) I often listen to this live performance. I remember this evening like it was last night. I released several personal demons that night, and I feel it comes across in our playing. It is an honor after all these years to present the re-mastered recordings for APEX, Live and Tsunami Sushi, recorded on a Saturday night in July of 2005 in the heart of downtown Tulsa! This album is 100% improvisational free jazz. To the other players of APEX, I love you and miss you and I hope one day we can join together again to rekindle the unique power and magic that was APEX! – Ragon Linde, Drums and Percussion
