Tickets and more info:
In celebration of International Jazz Day, Arena Music Promotion (AMP), is hosting the formidable jazz duo of Matthew Shipp and Michael Bisio at an exclusive venue in Capitol Hill on April 30, 2015.
Shipp and Bisio have long played together as part of the Matthew Shipp Trio and they continue to receive critical acclaim as a Duo. With Shipp on grand piano and Bisio on double bass, both are recognized internationally as amongst the most proficient on their instruments. John Fordham at Britain’s The Guardian describes a Shipp-Bisio show as “free-jazz, but full of melody, and every sound counts”, while Step Tempest calls it “edge-of-your-seat music”
Opening the evening is local duo Farko Dosumov & Alex Pinto. Dosumov was featured on the March cover of Earshot Jazz Magazine as one of the most versatile and in demand electric bassists in the Pacific Northwest, and Pinto is quickly rising through the ranks in the Seattle music scene. Both artists will be performing on custom made glass instruments created by the Seattle-based glass artist Gary Word .
This is a limited ticket event and strictly pre-sale only. There will be no door sales.
