The Jim Black Trio at ShapeShifter in Park Slope TONIGHT!!

September 27, 2012

CMJ calls him “wickedly inventive”, Time Out NY says he is “fluent in ALL languages”, WE can’t wait to see him play live tonight…
Jim Black is at the forefront of a new generation of musicians bringing jazz into the 21st century. In addition to being one of the most influential drummers of our time, he is also the leader of one of the world’s most forward-thinking bands, AlasNoAxis, featuring his longtime collaborators Chris Speed, Hilmar Jensson and Skúli Sverrisson. Based on the foundation of his virtuosic but highly personal approach to jazz drumming, Black’s aesthetic has expanded to include Balkan rhythms, rock songcraft and laptop soundscapes. Though he is revered worldwide for his limitless technique and futuristic concepts, what many listeners treasure most in Jim Black’s work is the relentless feeling of joy and invention he brings to his performances. Jim Black’s smiling, kinetic, unpredictable presence has enthralled and inspired audiences worldwide for over twenty years.
Tonight Mr. Black will be performing w/ Chris Tordini & Teddy Klausner on a double bill with
Steve Coleman & Five Elements at ShapeShifter Lab. Tonight TONIGHT!
