Event description

Description

The performance begins at 7:30; doors open 30 minutes prior.
Online sales end at 6PM day of the show. Tickets available at the door unless sold out.

Boiler House Jazz presents one of the significant forces in Boston's improvised-music scene, guitarist Eric Hofbauer paired with the eclectic modern dancer, Oliver Burns. The night will consist of planned 'pieces' (tempos, textures, rhythmic figures etc) within which Eric will improvise based on the musical framework Oliver will choreograph. It promises to be an exciting night of creativity structured out of movement & music.

Eric Hofbauer
erichofbauer.com

Eric Hofbauer has been an integral member of Boston’s jazz scene as a musician, bandleader, organizer and educator for the past twenty years. He has performed and recorded alongside such notable collaborators as Han Bennink, Roy Campbell, Jr., John Tchicai, Garrison Fewell, Cecil McBee, George Garzone, Sean Jones, John Fedchock, Steve Swell and Matt Wilson.

Hofbauer, recently recognized in the 2017 DownBeat Critics’ Poll for Rising Star – Guitar, is perhaps best known for his solo guitar work featured in a trilogy of solo guitar recordings (American Vanity, American Fear and American Grace). Of the trilogy, Andrew Gilbert of The Boston Globe writes, “No other guitarist in jazz has developed a solo approach as rigorous, evocative, and thoughtful as Hofbauer. His most recent solo release Ghost Frets, was described by Chris Haines of The Free Jazz Collective “as a real testament to Hofbauer’s musical style and vision…The playing is virtuosic throughout providing a real master class in creative solo performance.” Ghost Frets is a tribute to Hofbauer’s departed friend and frequent collaborator, Garrison Fewell, and features several Fewell compositions as well as pieces by diverse artists including Eric Dolphy, George Harrison, and the Psychedelic Furs!
