Presented by Kaufman Music Center at Merkin Concert Hall
Composer/sampling junkie Annie Gosfield meets drummer extraordinaire Billy Martin of Medeski Martin & Wood in a collaboration that includes members of Billy’s avant brass band “Wicked Knee” and Annie’s longtime collaborator, guitarist Roger Kleier. Inspired by the tradition of the instrumental 45 RPM single, they will present a grooving new music take on instrumental songs that are built on Annie's wild analog synth samples, factory sounds, jammed radio signals and noise, propelled by Martin’s supple, danceable beats, punctuated by a wicked horn section, and set aflame by combustible guitar.
