pianist Myra Melford
PROMISED LAND

The seeds of “Promised Land”, the trio of pianist Myra Melford, acoustic guitarist Brandon Ross and acoustic bass guitarist Stomu Takeishi, were sewn in the early Spring of 2006, during a European tour of southern Spain. It was an unexpected configuration that proved to be flexible, dynamic, fluid and fun - inspiring a second tour and now, four years later, the inception of a new ensemble called PROMISED LAND.

The music the trio creates represents a kind of modern chamber music for improvisers. Informed by world folk music; Jazz; chamber music; Blues and the pure elegance of song, it is American music hatched of the spirit of our times.

Pastoral, restless, poignant, and multi-dimensional - when listening to the music/interaction of the trio, a broad kind of intelligence makes itself apparent. A sound, that while associated with multiple sources/references, both original and personal, is clearly heard. Promised Land is an open musical experience, a place where dreams manifest reality.

This performance will be hosted by Tom Cole, host of “G-Strings,” which airs Sundays from 9 am – noon on WPFW-FM, media sponsor of this concert event.

Tickets: $15/$10 students
