Exhibition Description

Following their first New York performance at the Leo Castelli Gallery, Richard Landry and Musicians presented five concerts at 112. The music was completely improvisational. Prior to forming the band, these native Louisiana jazz musicians had played separately throughout Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi, during the late 50’s and 60’s.
