Myra Melford’s Snowy Egret • piano, jazz, composer
By August March
Pianist Myra Melford, a Guggenheim fellow who specializes in cross-genre, postmodern musical deconstruction, performs with her ensemble Snowy Egret at Outpost Performance Space on Friday, Oct. 16. Basing her work in a plethora of quintessential artistic experiences that encompasses everyone and everything from Rumi to Japanese Butoh and Meso-American Indigenous traditions, Melford brings a deft touch to her dream-like musical explorations. She’ll be in the company of instrumentalists Ron Miles on trumpet, guitarist Liberty Ellman, bassist Stomu Takeishi and drummer Tyshawn Sorey. Together they’ll perform work both translucent and opaque as they transport listeners to a world without sonic boundaries. Tickets range from $15-20 for this transcendent trip.
