Saxophonist/clarinetist and composer Jeff LaRochelle's 2nd album, "Lenses Extend", brings together many of his long- time musical collaborators to delve into his intricate and densely woven compositions. Lenses Extend explores the relationship we have with ourselves, in the context of our personal relationships, our society, and through the lens of social media and an increasingly politicized landscape. The music was written to look deeper and to gain clarity by examining the complexities of our modern world.
