Tomas Fujiwara’s Triple Double
Drummer, composer, and modern jazz master Tomas Fujiwara doubles-down with two drum kits, two guitarists, a trumpet, and a cornet (close enough…), and “the results are electrifying and relentless.” (Village Voice). Using grid patterns, mirrored ensemble play, and tempestuous negotiations between structure and freedom, Fujiwara’s compositions showcase each player’s personality and formidable technique as well as the wild-ranging possibilities in this mutable group of heavy-hitters. With Gerald Cleaver drums, trumpeter Ralph Alessi and cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum, and two avatars of contemporary electric guitar in Mary Halvorson and Brandon Seabrook, Triple Double is “by turns subtly beautiful and fiercely aggressive” (All About Jazz).
