Sun 10/08 4:30 PM California Jazz Conservatory [2087 Addison Street Berkeley]
Jenny Maybee’s “eloquent and heart stopping” piano playing and vocals have been hailed as “expertly balanced,” with her voice described as “exquisite” and “in the same league” as Billie Holiday, and her piano stylings compared to Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner, and Cecil Taylor. Jenny’s trio, featuring Shimpei Ogawa (bass) and Jon Arkin (drums), will bring an evening of innovative music to CJC. Rooted in the jazz and classical traditions, yet always breaking new ground, the trio will present original compositions and arrangements of favorite jazz standards.  More...

Fri 10/13 7:30 PM Tom's Place [3111 Deakin Street Berkeley]
The international trio of Theresa Wong (cello), Christian Kobi (saxophones) and Frantz Loriot (viola) came together for the first time in 2016. In their improvised music, the three quickly found a synergy in the focused exploration of acoustic sounds and the transformation of these sounds through amplification. Like a ‘microscope’ set to an image, the trio reveals the rich microcosm of their instruments through extended playing and mic techniques. Their music can be likened to the electrically pulsating din of a nocturnal insect colony. Audio samples can be found at:  More...

Sun 10/29 9:00 PM The Lab [2948 16th St SF]

Jlin appeared first on Planet Mu's second volume of "Bangs & Works" compilation, which had a huge impact on electronic/club music, bringing footwork to a wider audience. A protegee of RP Boo, Jlin hails from Gary, Indiana, a place close yet distant enough from Chicago to allow her to develop a different perspective on the genre. Her debut album Dark Energy was named best album of 2015 by The Wire—and the new Black Origami is bursting with force, taking footwork to another level through dense rhythmic patterns and tension that overwhelm the listener. Jlin will premiere her live show at The Lab.  More...
