Firehouse 12 To Present The Michaël Attias Quintet May 1st

From Improvised Communications:

On Friday, May 1st, New York-based saxophonist/composer Michaël Attias will make his Firehouse 12 debut as part of the venue’s ongoing 2009 Spring Jazz Series. Fresh off a two-week stint performing his original live electronic score for the Yale Repertory Theater’s production of Dostoevsky’s “Notes From The Underground” in late March and early April, Attias will return to New Haven with his new quintet. The group expands his longtime trio, Renku, featuring bassist John Hébert and drummer/percussionist Satoshi Takeishi, to include French horn player Mark Taylor and pianist Jacob Sacks.
