ARK continues with the 3rd offering in its New Music Concert Series. We are pleased to be presenting: duo B. – Jason Levis, percussion and Lisa Mezzacappa, acoustic bass. This year, duo B. has embarked on a new journey in long-form improvisation with its latest project, an exploration of the musical vision of pianist Cecil Taylor, re-imagined for bass and drums. “…mysterious, complexly textured improvisations that sometimes take shape as the aural equivalent of abstract expressionist paintings, whether the ethereal, mystical canvasses of Mark Rothko or the jittery, splatter techniques of Jackson Pollock.”
— Derk Richardson, KPFA
We will end our evening concert with Schwartz/Sharp/Valsamis. The trio of Jeff Schwartz – double bass, Charles Sharp – woodwinds, and Peter Valsamis – percussion, performs improvised music drawing on the traditions of free jazz, new music and diverse world music’s.
