David Tappeser Trio at The Quarter
January 25, 9:00 pm
[working title] is david soin tappeser’s drum-led trio, featuring his playful arrangements of (un-)known standards and jazzed-up takes on classic pop tunes.
Embracing the intimacy and flexibility of the traditional piano trio format, the group’s game is highly interactive, collaborative and improvisation-driven. interweaving hip-hop-grooves with ethiopian harmonies, folk tunes with reggaeton and the beatles with bhangra, the trio’s sounds emanate beyond genre or cultural specificity, infinite, indefinite and open to interpretation.
[working title] is nomadic. it’ll pitch its tent in india for its january 2019 two.oh tour, featuring mexican pianist gustavo mezo and british upright bass player theo malka-wishart. the release of their first ep is planned for the spring/summer 2019.
