Gordon Grdina’s Square Peg
Plus Hamin Honari and Itamar Erez | Innovation Series
A force of nature on guitar and oud, Gordon Grdina leads avant-Arabic 11-piece Haram, is half of fiery punk/jazz duo Peregrine Falls, and is making a very strong case for being named Vancouver’s international avant-jazz ambassador. With NYC all-stars Mat Maneri (Matthew Shipp, Cecil Taylor) violin/viola and Shahzad Ismaily (Marc Ribot’s Ceramic Dog, Secret Chiefs) bass, plus German drummer/percussionist Christian Lillinger (Tobias Delius, Achim Kaufmann), Grdina intersperses intense, spacious, heavily grooving free improv with modular composition ideas that fit together like puzzle pieces…except when the players decide to rip the puzzle pieces to shreds to make them fit the way they want them to!
Late Night Shows at The China Cloud, 524 Main Street, 2nd Floor, 11pm, $15 at door only. No Minors.
