Tatsuya Nakatani (percussion) and Michel Doneda (saxophone) with Phillip Greenlief (saxophone)

Tatsuya Nakatani is an old friend, having played at Tom's Place in 2014 and 2012. This time, in addition to meeting up with his old duo partner Phillip Greenlief, he will be bringing Michel Doneda with him.

Michel Doneda is a soprano saxophonist from Toulouse France. He is one of the most prominent and active improvisational musicians in Europe. He and Nakatani first met and played together in 2002 in Toulouse France. Two years later they performed and recorded with alto saxophonist Jack Wright, in New York City. They formed the trio "From Between" and over the next three years they toured the US, France and Japan releasing two highly acclaimed CDs and a DVD.

Greenlief explains his music thus: I play saxophone because I feel good when I play saxophone; when I don't play saxophone, I don't feel good. It's that simple. that's the only reason I can come up with for doing this thing you can call making music.

Cost: Free, donations accepted.
