Fabian Almazan Trio feat. Camila Meza


**Price includes brunch, music and a drink.**


On Rhizome, his second leader release, Fabian Almazan picks up where he left off on his acclaimed 2011 debut, Personalities. On that date, the pianist-composer, who had garnered international visibility for his work with Terence Blanchard since 2007, revealed a tonal personality imbued with, to quote jazz journalist Larry Blumenfeld, “a bracing blend of lyrical Modernism, modern-jazz improvisation and postmodern sonic disruption.”



Joined by trio partners Linda Oh on bass and Henry Cole on drums, and twice bringing a string quartet into the mix, Almazan presented seven originals that included achingly poetic ballads as well as songs defined by the disjunctive rhythms and highbrow harmony of 21st century jazz, all animated by the leader’s virtuoso pianistics. Almazan also acknowledged his Cuban bloodline (he was 9 when his parents migrated from Havana, Cuba, his birthplace, to Miami, Florida, where he came of age) with an idiomatic rendering of the iconic danzon “Tres Lindas Cubanas,” a classically inflected solo reading of Carlos Varela’s romantic bolero “Bola De Nieve,” and a phantasmagoric, electronically modified treatment of Dmitry Shostakovich’s “String Quartet No. 10, Op. 118.”
