The internationally recognized NM pianist and drummer team up for a duo of improv, crossing and contrasting stylistic borders exploring the realms and sub-genres of jazz, rock and post-classical.
Internationally recognized New Mexican pianist/keyboardist Thollem McDonas and drummer Dave Wayne team up for a dynamic duo of improvisations crossing and contrasting stylistic borders exploring the further realms and sub-genres of jazz, rock and post-classical music. Part of the No Compromise 2019 series, Thollem/Wayne create “a wickedly percussive combination. This works for jazz people who like rock and maybe more importantly, vice versa." (David E. Hintz DC Rock Live)
Touring perpetually for over a decade, Thollem is "equally at home in the worlds of jazz, punk, noise and modern classical" - Gabe Vodicka, Athens Flagpole) His on-going project, Duos with Drummers, is “brain melting” (Brad Cohan, Spin Magazine), and has involved not only Wayne, but many others, some being: Michael Wimberly, Sara Lund, Brian Chase, Ravish Momin, Lukas Ligeti, Milo Tamez, Gino Robair, Tatsuya Nakatani, Alex Cline, Susie Ibarra, William Hooker, Greg Saunier, Nava Dunkelman, Jeremy Barnes, Ravi Padmanabha.
