On Saturday May 31 Charles Sharp and I are playing two shows.
At 5:30 we are playing with Rich West on drums at the Unurban Cafe, 3101 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica. This is a project by choreographer Keith Glassman which combines our trio, four dancers, and a poet. The dance element is based on some of Allen Ginsberg’s photos, so we’ll be working mostly in a bebop/cool jazz/Ornette zone. Admission is free.
Then, at 10 we’ll be at MADhaus, 624 Pacific Ave, Long Beach, as the group Next, with Andrea Centazzo on percussion and electronics. This will be a free improvisation set. Expect a wide variety of timbres and textures. We are topping a four band bill. Also free admission. More info here.
