9:15 PM Todd Neufeld - guitar/Chris Tordini - bass/Flin Van Hemmen - drums
Todd Neufeld will be presenting material from his recentlyreleased debut album "Mu'U" (Ruweh Records), as well as new material written for the occasion. Neufeld isconsistently acclaimed as a highly unique voice on the guitar and "a guitarist equally given to sleek inquiry and prickly provocations" (Chinen,NYTimes.) His years of work in such bands as Tyshawn Sorey's Oblique and Koan, Masabumi Kikuchi's TPT trio, Lee Konitz'sQuartet and many others have helped grow in him a deep and complex conception of improvisation and it's interface withcomposition. Employing a highly metaphorical approach to the instrument, Neufeld conjures sounds beyond the instrument'stypical spectrum, tonight in a special trio setting.
