From Ann Arbor’s Kerrytown Concert House:

Friday February 15 8PM
Kris Davis Quintet

Trevor Dunn, bass
Tom Rainey, drums
Event Details

Kris Davis has quickly grown to become a vital contributor to New York’s jazz scene. The New York Times recently included her in an article about four pianists titled ‘New Pilots at the Keyboard’ and says ‘Over the last couple of years in New York one method for deciding where to hear jazz on a given night has been to track down pianist Kris Davis.’

Tuesday February 19 8PM
Michael Musillami Trio

“Musillami’s trio, his alliance with his longtime friends and collaborators, bassist Joe Fonda and drummer George Schuller, is a superb, finely tuned unit, empathetic, swinging and dramatically expressive of emotions sweeping from joy to sadness,” explains the Hartford Courant’s Owen McNally in his recent feature article. “More impressive than longevity, however, is the trio’s remarkably tight, cohesive unity. Nurtured by Musillami’s celebratory music, the band functions as a musical family, a democratic clan in which everyone expresses himself.”

CEAIT Festival 2013 Coming to LA

From LA’s REDCAT:

The two different programs that make up this year’s festival from the CalArts Center for Experiments in Art, Information and Technology (CEAIT) offer a triad of avant-garde techno music-makers. One night features Bonnie Jones, whose “no-input” style of sound-text performances make use of internal feedback mixers, cracked delay pedals, hacked electronics and other custom-made instruments as she short-circuits her board and plays her electronics in ways that manufacturers would never recommend. A second night features Keith Fullerton Whitman’s compositionally masterful electronica, which generates “shimmering drones and deep waves of sound,” together with improvised guitar. Both nights are anchored by selections from South Korea’s Balloon & Needle record label, founded by members of Puredigitalsilence and Piwacot to highlight the pioneering musicians of Seoul’s burgeoning experimental music scene.
