Letter From Ucha is Mark Weaver (tuba), Shawn Woodyard (sax), Milton Villarrubia, III (percussion).
LETTER FROM UCHA is a sax/tuba/percussion ensemble based in northern New Mexico which specializes in refashionings of jazz-related material from such composers as Sam Rivers, Andrew Hill, Mercer Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Herbie Nichols, Randy Weston, Jelly Roll Morton and Mal Waldron. Their sound ranges from delicate passages to raucous interplay, informed by a stripped down hot-rod free-jazz aesthetic. From drum'n'bass tinged jazz standards to the traditional rhythms of New Orleans jazz funerals, this big-little trio covers a lot of ground.
