Standards Trio to Asia – Time Machine to Europe
Kurt Rosenwinkel is about to hit the road again. This time for a trip to Asia with his Standards Trio, featuring Eric Revis on bass and Justin Faulkner on drums. The dates are:
Sept. 27-29: Cotton Club – Tokyo
Oct. 1: Jarasum Jazz Festival, Korea
Oct. 2: Hong Kong Jazz Festival
Then after those dates Kurt will get only a few days of rest before going to Europe with his Time Machine project. This band features Andrew D’Angelo on altosax/bass clarinet, Eric Revis on bass and Nasheet Waits on drums. Kurt plays both guitar and piano/keyboards in this project, which has only performed together once before at the Village Vanguard in June 2010.
Here’s Kurt’s description of Time Machine as a project:
“I wanted to hire the heaviest musicians i know and make a band. I also wanted to relinquish alot of the control I exert in my other bands when im trying to do my original music that has alot of details and specifics. So we are a more collectively improvising band, and I am not concerned with dictating direction at all. The material is coming from all over the stylistic map and spans from the 1950′s to present day originals. I call it Time Machine because its a transformative adventure, and brings you to places that arent your usual life- and we can jump around to songs created in very different times….”.
