Harris Eisenstadt's September Trio
Cornelia Street Café , West Village Thursday June 20 2013 22:00
Drummer Harris Eisenstadt celebrates a handsome new disc by his September Trio, The Destructive Element, as part of a globe-trotting two-night percussion festival. The June 19 bill features Senegalese drum group Sing Sing Rhythms (10pm), as well John Amira's Afro-Cuban Batá Drum Ensemble, performing Santeria rhythms rarely heard outside a ritual context. The June 20 bill features the September Trio itself—with Eisenstadt, saxist Ellery Eskelin and pianist Angelica Sanchez—presenting its uncommonly reflective and balladic brand of avant-jazz over the course of two sets.
