I feel winter coming. The sun is setting earlier and earlier, the weather is getting colder, mail-order gift catalogs fill my mailbox daily. Fortunately we're in California, so I don't have to dig in the back of the closet for my galoshes. I'm not sure where I'm going with this.

My point, which I'm not leading up to very well at all, is that Nava Dunkelman, gabby fluke-mogul and Fred Frith are coming to Tom's Place on Monday, November 11.

Here's video of the three of them playing at The Lab last year:

Nava Dunkelman draws influences from a panoply of musics, from Japanese taiko to Indonesian gamelan to American marching band, and from classical to contemporary to the avant-garde. Her phenomenal trio Dapplegray with Jeanie-Aprille Tang and Tara Sreekrishnan debuted in 2012 at The Stone in New York City. Her duo DunkelPek (with guitarist Jakob Pek) was a sensation when they appeared at Tom's Place a couple of years ago.

gabby fluke-mogul is a violinist, improviser, composer, & educator living in Oakland, CA. gabby explores the depths, infinite sounds, hues, & multitudinous voices of the acoustic violin. gabby holds a BA from Hampshire College in Improvised Music and Critical Studies of Childhood, Youth, and Learning and a MFA in Music Performance and Literature with Improvisation Specialization from Mills College.

Do I need to write anything about Fred Frith? He's been doing his timbral, rhythmic and melodic magic with an electric guitar for 50 years, and it's wonderful every time. Here's a video I like of him demoing a tiny bit of his technical repertoire:
