This week, acclaimed improvisers Dave Liebman, Adam Rudolph, and Tyshawn Sorey come to The Jazz Gallery, performing together as a trio for the first time. Rudolph is the connecting tissue in the ensemble, having invited both Liebman and Sorey to play with him at different residencies at The Stone in recent years. After playing there together in 2016, Liebman and Rudolph recorded The Unknowable (Rare Noise) with percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani.
Later, during Rudolph’s 2018 Stone residency, he and Liebman joined forces with percussionist Hamid Drake, yielding the live album Chi (Rare Noise).
In 2019, Rudolph and Sorey presented 2 nights of scintillating duo performances.
With this long track record of collaboration, the trio of Liebman, Rudolph, and Sorey will yield sounds both fresh and lived-in.
The Unknowable performs The Jazz Gallery on Thursday, September 30, 2021. The group features Dave Liebman on woodwinds, Adam Rudolph on percussion, and Tyshawn Sorey on percussion. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. E.D.T. $25 general admission ($10 for members), $35 reserved table seating ($20 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
