This Friday, March 30, The Jazz Gallery welcomes Crump/Laubrock/Smythe—a veritable supergroup of free-thinking improvisers—to our stage for two sets. Each player is a forceful leader in their own right, and the collective has quickly found their footing in the murky space between New York’s jazz and concert music scenes. The trio released their debut record—Planktonic Finales (Intakt)—in February 2017, showcasing their easy rapport through 11 freely-improvised vignettes.

Before coming to the Gallery on Friday to hear the group’s latest improvised explorations, check out their recent performance at the Cornelia Street Cafe, below.

Crump/Laubrock/Smythe play The Jazz Gallery on Friday, March 30, 2018. The group features Stephan Crump on bass, Ingrid Laubrock on saxophones, and Cory Smythe on piano. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $25 general admission ($10 for members), $35 reserved cabaret seating ($20 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
