For over four decades, percussionist and composer Adam Rudolph has forged a singular place in the music world, living at the nexus between jazz improvisation and folkloric music from around the world. He’s worked with and learned from a number of international musical explorers, including Fred Anderson, Yuseef Lateef, and Don Cherry, and has carried those experiences into the music he has composed for his own bands, Go: Organic Orchestra and Moving Pictures.
This Tuesday and Wednesday, October 3rd and 4th, Rudolph will convene Moving Pictures at The Jazz Gallery to play music from their most recent record, Glare of the Tiger (Meta). Filled with adventurous improvisers like Hamid Drake, James Hurt, and Graham Haynes, Moving Pictures has developed a deep musical chemistry, yielding lush and ecstatic results. Before hearing the group take Rudolph’s music to new heights at the Gallery, check out the album streaming below, and a short making-of featurette.
Adam Rudolph’s Moving Pictures plays The Jazz Gallery on Tuesday, October 3rd, and Wednesday October, 4th, 2017.
