Earshot: Meridian + Pontius Pilots
For the final concert in their Jazz: The Second Century series, Earshot Jazz presents an exciting double bill: Drummer Byron Vannoy and his Meridian quintet have developed a sound rooted in jazz and fueled by rock and popular music. Pontius Pilots is a collaboration between pianist and composer Victor Noriega and producer-musician Robert Nelson (e.R.DoN) that combines live piano and keyboards with pre-recorded samples. Together they create a kinetic, captivating music, shifting and teetering between traditional and more experimental jazz elements.
