Dallas-based trumpeter Dennis Gonzalez has been called the most significant avant-garde jazz musician to make his home in Texas. Since founding the Dallas Association for Avant-Garde and Neo-Impressionistic Music — now there's a mouthful — Gonzalez has worked with a who's who of modern jazz, including a few names even less adventurous ears might recognize such as late drummer Max Roach, Nas's dad Olu Dara and Wilco guitarist Nels Cline. Since he came out of semi-retirement in 1999, though, Gonzalez's most important collaborators have been his sons Aaron and Stefan. Under the name Yells at Eels, the trio merges the younger Gonzalezes' interests in heavy music — punk rock, metal, thrash, grindcore — with their dad's guitar-pedal-aided explorations. Gonzalez has not played in Houston since 2001, so Saturday's show is yet another "get" for local avant-garde stewards (and MasterMind winners — see page 12) Nameless Sound, and features Houston's Jason Jackson of Plump and Free Radicals sitting in on various woodwinds.
