Event description
Two great projects from Whit Dickey in an intimate theater setting

About this Event

Drummer Whit Dickey is likely best known to you for his work with David S. Ware and Matthew Shipp, but he has also been recording great works as a bandleader since 1998. His Peace Planet -&- Box of Light double-album 2CD by his Tao Quartets on AUM Fidelity is one of the best free music recordings of 2019, in our opinion. But don't just take our word for it: http://www.freejazzblog.org/2019/10/whit-dickeythe-tao-quartets-box-of.html .

Tonight we present two of his most recent projects: the band which created the Box of Light portion of the Tao Quartets set, which features Steve Swell, Michael Bisio, and Rob Brown. Those of you who have been going to the House of Improv shows know how great Steve Swell and Michael Bisio can be. And, the duo of Kirk Knuffke and Whit Dickey. They have produced two CDs, the first, Fierce Silence, was released by Clean Feed in 2015 and the second, Drone Dreams, was released by NoBusiness Records in May of this year. Kirk was fantastic during his recent House of Improv performance and based on the recordings, I expect telepathic fireworks for this performance as well.
