Ken Filiano || Quantum Entanglements

gaucimusic presents:

Big Fat Music Wednesdays @ happylucky no.1

December 13th

8pm: Ken Filiano || Quantum Entanglements

Ken Filiano - bass, compositions / Ingrid Laubrock - saxophones / Anders Nilsson - guitar / Michael T.A. Thompson - drums

**Ken Filiano performs throughout the world, playing and recording with leading artists in jazz, spontaneous improvisation, classical, world/ethnic, and interdisciplinary performance, fusing the rich traditions of the double bass with his own seemingly limitless inventiveness. Ken’s solo bass CD, subvenire (NineWinds), received widespread critical praise. For this and numerous other recordings, Ken has been called a creative virtuoso, a master of technique … a paradigm of that type of artist… who can play anything in any context and make it work, simply because he puts the music first and leaves peripheral considerations behind.**

** Quantum Entanglements; Through their vivid improvisations - collective as well as individual - this group of seasoned improvisers will explore, pull apart, and reorganize this set of recent compositions by Filiano.**

9:15pm: Michael Bisio

Michael Bisio - bass, compositions / Avram Fefer - woodwinds / Art Bailey - accordion

**Michael Bisio, bassist/composer, has eighty five recordings in his discography, twenty four of these are split evenly between leader/co-leader, ten of them document his extraordinary association with modern piano icon Matthew Shipp. Michael has been called a poet, a wonder and one of the most virtuosic and imaginative performers on the double bass. Nate Chinen in the New York Times writes : "The physicality of Mr. Bisio's bass playing puts him in touch with numerous predecessors in the avant-garde, but his expressive touch is distinctive;..." As a composer Michael has been awarded nine grants and an Artist Trust Fellowship Collaborators include Matthew Shipp, Joe McPhee, Charles Gayle, Connie Crothers, Whit Dickey, Ivo Perelman, Barbara Donald, Newman Taylor Baker, Rob Brown, Sonny Simmons and Sabir Mateen. **
