MICHAEL JEFRY STEVENS
The LIGHTBULB TRIO PROJECT
with special guest
Micheal Jefry Stevens and his jazz piano work are mainstays on the White Horse Black Mountain stage. And while improvisation is a given in jazz, Stevens’ new Open Music Series takes the “in the moment” component to a new level. Each concert in the monthly series will present the Lightbulb Trio Project with a different guest soloist as they explore the immediacy of the improvisational process in outside the box performances.
The Lightbulb Trio Project’s sound is built around Michael Jefry Stevens’ acoustic piano and compositional concepts, the “kitchen percussion” innovations of Rob Falvo and the “speaking trombone” of Harold McKinney. All three musicians have been active in free improvisation settings in Europe and are eager to delight American ears with the surprising and energized sounds that emerge from spontaneous collective creation.
"Improvisational music is immediate, exploratory and constantly in process. Let your ears be opened to "in the moment" musical emergence. ." ---- Michael Jefry Stevens
Tonight's concert will feature special guest BILL FOUTY one of the top bassists in the region.
