"Improvisations" Series at RAW
On Saturday September 15, the new "season" begins with the dynamic bassist Mark Dresser joining Mrs. Haynes and Morris for an evening of musical explorations. The program opens at 7 p.m. with a solo set by Dresser, who has been a mainstay of the international creative music scene for 3 decades. He's worked with Professor Anthony Braxton, saxophonist Joe Lovano, trumpeter Dave Douglas and has co-leads several ensembles including Trio M (with Myra Melford and Matt Wilson) and Mauger (with Rudresh Mahanthappa and Gerry Hemingway.) Dresser has issued a number of CDs as a leader, has composed scores for dance and digital artists and is known for his fearless sonic experimentation.
After intermission, Haynes and Morris will join Dresser in a freely improvised set. For more information, go to www.realartways.org or call 860-232-1006.
