Bill Laswell will perform live for a one-night only event with Hideo Yamaki and Dave Douglas.
Bill Laswell is a legendary iconoclast bassist / producer who has worked with Hideo Yamaki since the 1980s in many diverse and unprecedented configurations. Together, they have established a dialogue between bass and drums that explodes with fluid, spontaneous blasts of feeling, an ever expanding, dynamic matrix.
Hideo Yamaki is Japan's most renowned, respected, and in demand drummer. He is a veteran of countless recording and live projects with Japans most celebrated pop and rock artists. He has also collaborated with Japanese icons such as Ryuichi Sakamoto, Toshinori Kondo, DJ Krush, Akira Sakata, and many others.
Dave Douglas (special guest) is one of the leading trumpeters of his generation. His transcendent style and sweeping vision earned him the DownBeat Critics Poll title Trumpet Player of the Year, a title he has won thirteen times in the past fifteen years. Over the course of his career, he has worked with the group Masada led by John Zorn, Horace Silver, Anthony Braxton, Joe Lovano, and many others.
