This Tuesday, February 26, bassist Nick Dunston returns to The Jazz Gallery stage with a new group. Called Truffle Pig, the group is a sax-bass-drums double trio featuring some of Dunston’s closest collaborators.
Dunston’s work straddles an array of musical communities and practices. Dunston is just as comfortable holding down the low-end in a post-bop combo (he’ll be back at the Gallery on Thursday with vocalist Arta Jēkabsone) as he is experimenting with unruly instrumental sounds (he just premiered a new work for solo viola on Sunday). It’s no wonder he’s already gotten to call with acclaimed artists such as Tyshawn Sorey and Marc Ribot.
Before checking out Dunston’s newest work at the Gallery this week, take a listen to a stirring solo bass performance from last year that showcases his wide imagination.
Nick Dunston’s Truffle Pig plays The Jazz Gallery on Tuesday, February 26, 2019. The group features Mr. Dunston & Ben Rolston on bass, David Leon & Noah Becker on alto saxophone, and Lesley Mok & Kate Gentile on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $15 general admission (FREE for members), $20 reserved cabaret seating ($10 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
