Announcing the release of Watch the Walls Instead on May 29!
The release concert will be held Thursday, May 31 at 8PM at Douglass Street Music Collective.
Giacomo Merega (electric bass) leads this trio featuring Noah Kaplan (saxophone) and Marco Cappelli (guitars) in collaborative settings with pianist Anthony Coleman and Mauro Pagani (violin) on Watch the Walls Instead. The record presents a continuation of the trio with Kaplan and David Tronzo from Merega’s critically acclaimed debut album, The Light and Other Things, described as “[conveying] a radiant emotionality,” (All About Jazz). This kaleidoscopic album brims with fractured rhythms and spidery lines sustained by gritty electro-acoustic textures. Poet provacateur Sparrow’s surreal, punk sci-fi short, On the Wings of the Dove, is the literary companion to the record. Available for pre-order from iTunes on May 15th.
