Michael Musillami Trio with Mark Feldman: Live Dates and New CD
(Published: April 24, 2007)

Guitarist Michael Musillami and his longstanding trio, featuring bassist Joe Fonda and drummer George Schuller, will perform two live dates in the Northeast in early May with special guest, violinist Mark Feldman. The quartet will perform May 2nd at Brooklyn's Barbés and May 3rd at Lakeville, Connecticut's Hotchkiss School before entering the studio on May 6th to record a new CD. Feldman will appear on every track of the forthcoming CD, which will feature new Musillami originals written specifically for this four-piece ensemble. The as-yet-untitled recording is tentatively scheduled for an August 28th street date.

"I've felt a strong connection to Mark's playing since I heard him on Thomas Chapin's 1996 release Haywire (Knitting Factory)," Musillami explains. "Mark played right beside Thomas and his performance was amazing. Ever since, that record has inspired both my writing and my playing, as has Mark's work with Tim Berne. I've always wanted to add that edge Mark brought to Haywire to one of my groups, and our schedules finally made room to perform and record together this spring. We're also planning live dates in Europe for February 2008."

Musillami is known as "a superior guitarist" (DownBeat), "one of the more imaginative guitarists in jazz" (Signal to Noise) and "a modern-day jazz master" (Edmonton Journal). Critics have noted that his distinctive original compositions "mine not only the fertile vein of classic jazz but the outer reaches of creative music" (Hartford Courant), calling his music "honest, frequently surprising, and consistently exciting" (JazzTimes). He previously recorded with his trio on 2003's Beijing and 2005's Dachau, both on his acclaimed Playscape Recordings label. His most recent CD is 2006's Fragile Forms, the debut release from his group, Michael Musillami's Dialect, featuring pianist Peter Madsen, bassist Drew Gress and drummer Matt Wilson.
