Four Parts Five is a new half-hour quintet by composer/pianist Gordon Beeferman that takes virtuosic rhythmic ensemble playing to a new level. Imagine György Ligeti, Philip Glass, Igor Stravinsky, Steve Coleman and Conlon Nancarrow having a dance party – with Morton Feldman smoking a cigarette and watching wryly from the corner – and you’ll have an idea of the sound. Hot off the press (just finished in December 2012), FOUR PARTS FIVE will be performed by Gordon Beeferman on piano and organ with saxophonist/clarinetist Peter Hess (Slavic Soul Party, Asphalt Orchestra), guitarist Anders Nilsson (Fay Victor Ensemble, Fulminate Trio), bassist James Ilgenfritz (Trio Caveat, “The Ticket That Exploded”), and drummer/percussionist Mike Pride (Bacteria to Boys, “I Don’t Hear Nothin’ But the Blues”). The performance will be Tuesday, February 26, 2013, at 10pm, on the ON THE WAY OUT: MUSIC FROM THE NEW YORK UNDERGROUND series, at Freddy’s Bar and Backroom, 627 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, between 17th and 18th Streets (near the Prospect Avenue R train). Suggested donation $10.
