Sun 6/26 8:00 PM Center for New Music [55 Taylor St SF]
Described by The New York Times as one of the most memorable groups in jazz, the quintet of Marta Sanchez will present the music of their last CD: SAAM (Spanish American Art Museum), released on Whirlwind Recordings.
“SAAM (Spanish American Art Museum),” is both musically complex and emotionally direct, managing to convey the raw, implacable pain of loss. -Giovanni Russonello for The New York Times.
“It's early in the year to be talking about the best jazz albums of 2022, but right now this is on the shortlist.” -Lucid Casual  More...

Ralph White (Austin, TX)
Austin Music Hall of Fame core member of the legendary trio, Bad Livers. “His solo work is possessed of a lonesome spark, exaggerating the implied drone at the heart of the music of Dock Boggs and The Stanley Brothers… playing wooden six-string banjo, violin, accordion and kalimba, his voice has a high, eerie quality… extremely psychedelic"
https://ralphewhite.com/music

Evidence Trio
Mbira, flute and alto maestera Kersti Abrams unites with vibrational bassist Thomas Harrison and thereminist Andrew Joron to establish the avant-space improv Evidence Trio.
https://m-kat-ensemble.bandcamp.com/releases

DMTD
David Molina and Thomas Dimuzio may seem still, the way whales appear motionless even as they vanish into miles of blue. Deep in your mind you swear they're *both* holding guitars? A thermocline forms, edges of a lake take shape, a lake submerged within the icy ocean.
http://drmsound.com/ || http://www.thomasdimuzio.com/


Earth Jerks
Walk, don't run to the glacial tempo of Christian Dixon's emo-surf-drone that reveals far more space, time and flow than you'll ever ride out. Hear what you're hearing, know what you already know.

Fri 7/22 8:00 PM Mosswood Sound Series [3630 Telegraph Ave enter 2nd door on 37th St Oakland]
Guitarist GIACOMO FIORE presents a pair of just intonation works: CATHERINE LAMB'S "point/wave" (2015) and LARRY POLANSKY'S "freeHorn" (2004). Both pieces harness electronics to generate novel harmonic spaces for the guitar to inhabit and ornament, weaving cyclical arc-like patterns in Lamb, and freely following a progression between related harmonic series in Polansky.

sfSoundGroup performs two iconic 20th century works of chamber music: GÉRARD GRISEY'S bracing "Talea" (1986) and the premiere of a transcription of BRUNO MADERNA'S rarely performed, beguiling "Serenata N.2" (1956).  More...
