Russ Lossing’s King Vulture
Wednesday, October 22nd 8:30 PM $15 Suggested Donation
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
