The Undead Music Festival is the spring offering co-sponsored by the folks who bring us Winter Jazzfest , NYC, each winter. The “Round Robin” Duets concert on May 14th, at NYC’s Town Hall, looks to be an intriguing, major highlight, featuring improvised duos by some of the top, highly respected musicians on the jazz scene. Artists will include: Allen Toussaint, Amp Fiddler, Daedelus, Dave Douglas, David Murray, James Carter, Jamie Lidell, Jherek Bischoff, Kaki King, Karsh Kale, Marc Ribot, Marco Benevento, Nels Cline, Petra Haden, Shigeto, Terri Lyne Carrington, Wadada Leo Smith and more.
The evening is structured so that one musician will begin and a second will join the improvisation, the first leaves and another joins the duet, continuing through the evening in this pattern, in what should be a stimulating and thoughtful flow of improvised styles and musical expressions and communications between the musicians.
