Matt Pavolka: Bass & Trombone
Kirk Knuffke:  Cornet
Loren Stillman:  Alto Sax
Jacob Garchik: Trombone
Mark Ferber: Drums

“Drawing from contemporary strategies as well as the small-group music of Duke Ellington, his (Pavolka’s) compositions accomplish a lot with earthy beauty and shifting momentum. At their best, as on “The Night the Blind Man Dreamt That He Was Blind” (for José Saramago), they suggest a gradually forming picture.” – Nate Chinen, The New York Times

Pitom Duo (8:15 pm)
Yoshie Fruchter (guitar)
Jeremy Brown (violin).

This is a rare chance to hear the more intimate version of guitarist Yoshie Fruchter’s Tzadik Records project Pitom. These guys are both busy touring and recording with fantastic groups like Zion80, Golem, Sandaraa and more, so come enjoy their modern take on original Jewish music.

Bop Kabbalah (9 pm)
Ty Citerman (guitar)
Adam D Gold (drums)
Ben Holmes (trumpet)
Ken Thomson (bass clarinet).

Guitarist Ty Citerman’s latest quartet released an acclaimed CD on Tzadik Records earlier this year which garnered four stars in Downbeat and was hailed by JazzTimes as “…one of the year’s most arresting recordings…wailing with enough majesty to bring down the walls of Jericho.” The band will premiere several new compositions by Citerman.

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
