Dmitri Matheny and Mark Taylor come together to express two takes on jazz and creative improvised music as one rich, varied and connected continuum. Both bands feature the consummate rhythm section playing of Eric Revis on bass and Michael TA Thompson at the drums. Mr. Matheny’s set, featuring pianist Richard Johnson, focuses on music from his tenth release as a leader, Sagebrush Rebellion, which showcases new originals, jazz classics by Johnny Burke and Duke Ellington, and favorite compositions by Charlie Haden, Steve Swallow and Nat Adderley. Mr. Taylor brings saxophonist Michael Attias into the mix to perform a collection of recent compositions created to explore his current obsession with drama and narrative in contemporary improvised music. ::: Richard Johnson - piano Eric Revis - bass Michael TA Thompson - drums Michael Attias - alto sax Dmitri Matheny - flugelhorn/composer Mark Taylor composer/piano
