At 7 PM, the museum presents modern jazz ensemble Third Story.
Formed by bassist Danny Weller and featuring guitarist Jeff Miles (winner of 2008 Montreux Jazz Guitar Competition), pianist Joshua White (2011 Monk Competition Finalist), and Los Angeles drummer Jens Kuross, Third Story is a new voice in modern jazz.
A venture into lush piano ostinatos, ambient guitar fills, aggressive rhythmic interplay, and haunting melodies, Third Story's debut album features original compositions ranging from straight-ahead swing to Latin, fusion, and "straight-eighths" rhythms influenced by 1970's ECM recordings. The band plays with melodies of different colors and shapes; sometimes nobody solos, sometimes everybody solos simultaneously. Walls of sound interrupted by moments of pristine simplicity.
Third Story explores a realm of sound and force that reads like a favorite book: clear, powerful, and sometimes true.
