Classical pianist extraordinaire Taka Kigawa has been a friend of Sound It Out from the start, and he returns to the series with an opening program of jazz-inspired pieces by the likes of Ligeti, Bartók and Stravinsky. The New York Times has called Taka “always a poised guide in the most daunting music,” praising his “cool, clarity and calm.”
Then, capping the night’s double-bill, is pianist-composer Sebastien Ammann’s Color Wheel, featuring the ever-compelling saxophonist Michaël Attias and the rhythm duo of Noah Garabedian and Nathan Ellman-Bell. Sebastien and company will be celebrating the release of Color Wheel’s eponymous first album.
