Earshot presents Jazz: The 2nd Century
Presented by Earshot Jazz. The Durán/Schloss/Mitri Trio featuring Hilario Durán (piano), Andrew Schloss (radiodrum/electronics), and Irene Mitri (violin) combine Afrocuban jazz with live electronics and interactive computer music to create a sound entirely their own. While Durán is a world-class jazz pianist and composer from Cuba, Schloss is known as an experimenter in high-tech interactive computer music in concerts around the world, and Mitri is a lyrical violinist who has expanded into Latin Jazz. The Paul Rucker Ensemble, led by the always creative cellist/bassist, with Neil Gitkind (trombone), Isaac Marshall (flute, thumb piano), Erik Anderson (drums), and Hans Teuber (saxophone).
