SATURDAY, November 2
8:00 PM Sylvie Courvoisier Trio with Drew Gress & Kenny Wollesen
VENUE: Greenwich House Music School
DETAILS:
About her new trio, Courvoisier says: “John Zorn had been asking me to do a piano-trio record for ages, but I always felt the great history of the piano trio was so intimidating – I really needed to find the right musicians. Drew has such a gorgeous sound and individual rhythmic sensibility, and Kenny has a wonderful sense of groove and a huge dynamic range. This trio has a more rhythmic feel than some of my past music, but our shows have really ranged, from through-composed material to full-on improvisation, from a real jazz vibe to very open and free.”
