The next Tiny Bar Session at Black Iris is coming up and we're excited to be hosting the Brooklyn based trio Simple. Fronted by the brilliant Anna Webber, Simple has been receiving praise for pushing the boundaries of what we've come to consider the forefront of jazz/new music in this country. Scott Clark 4tet will be opening the evening with their own flavor of genre defying compositions and performances. Join us Saturday April 2nd for a night evening that will challenge your imagination, rewarding you with an aesthetic gift that only music can give.
Doors: 7:30pm | Tickets $10, available at Steady Sounds Monday March, 28th
“SIMPLE” (Skirl) is her best work yet, recorded with two of the best musicians working in New York’s compositional, high-concept avant-garde — the pianist Matt Mitchell and the drummer John Hollenbeck. These pieces are bracing, argumentative and engineered to show the range of the group members: fulminous, intense collective improvisation; rapid, chromatic steeplechases; research into long tones and textures.
