Daniel Levin Quartet CD Release Concert at Cornelia Street Cafe
September 9, 8:30pm, Cornelia Street Cafe, 29 Cornelia Street, NYC
I started this quartet in 2001, and our first release, “Don’t Go It Alone”, came out in 2003. In July, our seventh record, “Friction”, was released on Clean Feed.

Trio with Jon Irabagon and Brandon Lopez
September 15, 10:30pm, Korzo, 667 5th Ave, Brooklyn, NY
This is a new project. Jon and I were sharing the bill this summer at Elastic in Chicago, and we talked about setting up a situation for us to play together. Brandon is someone I have been working with a bunch lately, and I’m really looking forward to the music we’ll make at Korzo.

Trio with Juan Pablo Carletti and Brandon Lopez
September 21, 4:00pm, Children’s Magical Garden, Norfolk St. and Stanton St., NYC
Juan Pablo and I have been working as a duo for a few years, and released a CD earlier this year called “Illusion of Truth”, which can be found on OutNow Records. For this concert, we’re adding Brandon Lopez’ bass to the mix. This concert is part of the Concerts for Sandra Bland series.

Duo with Chris Pitsiokos
September 21, 6:00pm, Downtown Music Gallery, 13 Monroe Street, NYC
Saxophone vs. cello, who will win? Chris and I excited to roll up our sleeves and have at it. Here’s a link to Chris’ website. He is a badass.

Taka Kigawa at Le Poisson Rouge Reviewed

Posted on Updated on

Source: The New York Times.

The works on Mr. Kigawa’s syllabus — the two books of Debussy’s “Images,” Tristan Murail’s “Territoires de l’Oubli” and Marco Stroppa’s “Traiettoria … Deviata”— were far more similar than they were different. In Mr. Kigawa’s hands, they were investigations of the lives and deaths of sounds. As he moved through the program, you became increasingly sensitive to just how much of what you hear from a piano is a mysterious interplay of tones, sometimes long after the keys have been struck.
