Upcoming Events

Russ Lossing’s King Vulture

Wednesday, October 22nd 8:30 PM $15 Suggested Donation

Russ Lossing







Russ Lossing, piano, compositions
Adam Kolker, tenor sax, bass clarinet
Matt Pavolka, bass
Dayeon Seok, drums

Four deep listening and highly fluid improvisers interpret Lossing’s fascinating and provocative compositions in real time. King Vulture features a new book of previously unrecorded Lossing compositions. Lossing’s brief but intense study with John Cage in the early ’80s and his more recent 12 year association with Paul Motian continue to inform his music at present.

“Kolker’s a real improviser, making impulsive choices about phrasing and how to imply a chord…” -Ben Ratliff – NY Times

Stylistically, Lossing is, simply, a “space man”—like Thelonious Monk and Paul Bley, letting the spaces be-tween notes do the talking. -ICON Magazine

Harris Eisenstadt’s Golden State (8 pm)

In a rare New York performance, before November concerts in Switzerland and Austria, Golden State plays material from a new recording on Songlines, coming spring 2015.
Musicianer is Josh Sinton’s new trio in which he seeks to create a musical universe that makes sense to him using the baritone saxophone as the prime generator of material. This is a group that will be exploring the interstices of song, free-form composition and group interplay.

Sinton will present his new work in progress “Diction of Inefficiency” for baritone saxophone.
