Add to Calendar 2017-09-07 7:00 pm 2017-09-07 Tom Rainey Trio at International Jazz Poetry Festival at City Of Asylum @ Alphabet City Join us for an evening of jazz with the Tom Rainey Trio!

While Rainey’s evocative, time-morphing and occasionally implosive drumming plays a central role in the musical materiality here, his trio is very much an integrated ensemble. The commanding component parts are critical to the vibe and behavioral manner and conversational of the whole. Laubrock is a saxophonist of unusual textural sensitivity and intellectual savvy, who can summon up proper deposits of abandon, knowing restraint and sly references to jazz’ past in the midst of her purely improvisational explorations. Halvorson, one of the important “avant-jazz” guitarists of her generation, takes the abstracting and deconstructionist influence of, say, Derek Bailey into account in her playing, but has come up with her own way of melding that free-styling painterliness with shards of line and sonics – including tasteful deployment of effects units, a well-placed vibrato effect, ring modulation or distortion blast adding to the range and contemporary relevance of what she does. Together, they make a refreshing new and not -sentimental kind of beautiful music.
