Creative Differences and An Die Musik Live team up for this show.
Creative Differences 2009 presents a performance from international jazz trio Anker/Mori/Courvoisier, featuring Lotte Anker on saxophone, Ikue Mori on electronics and Sylvie Courvoisier on piano, at An die Musik Live on Saturday at 8 p.m. Their 2008 release, “Alien Huddle,” combined jazz and modern classical influences, topping many critics’ lists for 2008.
Anker, a native of Copenhagen, Denmark, has studied with Joe Henderson, David Liebman, John Tchicai, David Murray and Bob Brookmeyer. Mori moved from Tokyo to New York in 1977, and in the ’80s began to employ drum machines within the context of improvised music. Courvoisier was born and raised in Lausanne, Switzerland, and moved to Brooklyn in 1998. She has played and recorded with John Zorn, Joey Baron, Tony Oxley, Yusef Lateef, Dave Douglas, Butch Morris, Mark Dresser and Fred Frith, among others.
An die Musik Live is located at 409 N. Charles St. in Baltimore. Tickets are $20. For more information, visit andiemusiklive.com.
