Chris Speed Trio with Wendy Eisenberg


Chris Speed Trio with Wendy Eisenberg

The NYC saxophonist with The Bad Plus drummer Dave King and bassist Chris Tordini

Chris Speed and Dave King of Broken Shadows return to SPACE! 

Since arriving in New York in the early 1990s, reed player Chris Speed has been one of the most vital improvising musicians on the scene. His work has always ranged widely, moving from a jazz base out through various forms of folk, classical, and rock music. With the formation of this excellent trio with drummer Dave King (The Bad Plus) and bassist Chris Tordini, he's reversed direction. The is a group returning from other explorations to work deep within the jazz tradition, bringing everything else they've learned back in. What is most compelling about this music is the incorporation of early jazz styles in a way that is direct and deeply felt. The music is joyful and generous and Speed has an uncanny knack for coming up with tunes that can create a whole world of emotions and formal possibilities behind an often catchy melodic surface.

"The music here occupies a space outside of time..." - Downbeat

Using the languages of free jazz, new music, extreme metal and art song, her music sets to pose and expose the questions surrounding the human body in the world and the representational and technical demands placed on it in artistic practice.
