Craig Taborn Trio

Apr 26, 2013 08:00 PM - 09:30 PM

“Mr. Taborn, an unusually matter-of-fact virtuoso, teases out structural affinities among free jazz, postimpressionist classical and electronic music, forging something uniquely his own.” —New York Times

This joyous celebration welcomes home critically acclaimed jazz keyboardist/composer and former Golden Valley prodigy Craig Taborn, who showcases his omnivorous musical tastes and astonishing technical ability. The eclectic evening of new jazz, improv-electronics, and synth-funk is informed by Taborn’s early years in the ’80s music scene in Minneapolis and his later decades as sideman and bandleader on international jazz circuits.
Featuring Junk Magic (Dave King, drums; Erik Fratzke, bass; Chris Speed, tenor saxophone; and Mat Maneri, viola); Taborn’s Trio (Gerald Cleaver, drums; and Thomas Morgan, bass); and austerely beautiful solo piano works from his lauded 2011 ECM release Avenging Angel.
The 8 pm performance will be broadcast live by KFAI Radio Without Boundaries (90.3/106/7FM).
