MICHAËL ATTIAS TRIO LIVE at The Cornelia Street Cafe

October 10, 2014

2778088A magnetic presence on the New York scene since the mid-nineties, saxophonist/composer/improvisor Michaël Attias was born in Israel, spent his childhood in Paris and his adolescence in the American Midwest. Exposing himself to a wide range of life and musical experience, he has crafted a supple, passionate and uncompromising language in which to render the diversity of his imagination and commitments.

As a leader, Attias has released five critically-acclaimed albums since 2005: Credo, Renku, Renku in Coimbra, Twines of Colesion and, in 2012, Spun Tree. As a sideman, he has performed and recorded all over the world alongside some of today’s most compelling musicians: Anthony Braxton, Paul Motian, Anthony Coleman, Masabumi Kikuchi, Tony Malaby, Ralph Alessi, Oliver Lake, Tom Rainey, John Hébert, Nasheet Waits, Sean Conly, Ken Filiano, Kris Davis, and many others.

In advance of their appearance at the 2014 EdgeFest in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Mr. Attias and long time collaborators bassist John Hébert and drummer Tom Rainey join forces for a evening of liquid fire music and improvisation.

Here’s what the press is saying… “Michael Attias’ beguilingly mercurial trio is one of those bands that give delicacy a good name. Like Air, the reeds-bass-drums outfit dedicates as much room to extended hushes as they do knotty expressionism, giving their sound an almost ghostly vibe. As it gracefully insinuates itself, the music gathers more and more depth.” Jim Macnie VILLAGE VOICE

Come see this amazing trio LIVE at Corneila Street Cafe this Friday October 10th at 9pm.
