Gordon Beeferman Organ Trio – album release concert
with solo piano pieces and songs with Sharon Harms, soprano
I-Beam, 168 7th Street, Brooklyn
Gordon Beeferman brings back his organ trio with two remarkable collaborators, guitarist Anders Nilsson and drummer/percussionist Ches Smith, for a album release concert. Riffing on the classic jazz organ trio through a contemporary chamber music lens, the trio will perform Beeferman’s concert-length set of compositions completed at the Ucross Foundation in Wyoming in the fall of 2016. These intricate and extended pieces traverse unusual moods, forms, rhythms, and sound-worlds, opening up to feature each member of the trio, each unique virtuoso improvisers in their own right.
To open the concert, Beeferman will perform short solo piano pieces as well as songs with soprano Sharon Harms. Program TBA.
This program is co-produced by Anti-Social Music and supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
