Cellist Erik Friedlander is a composer, an improviser, and a veteran of NYC's Downtown scene. The Friday night (7p) performance will feature his trio Black Phebe presenting the New York premier of new works.  Friedlander's recent projects includes Oscalypso, a grooving tribute to bassist and sometimes cellist Oscar Pettiford and  Illuminations, a magical solo cd that weaves inspirations from ancient book making with ritual dance movements and Renaissance vocal forms.  Whether Shoko Nagai is performing Klezmer, Balkan or experimental music, she is a charismatic presence onstage, who hypnotizes audiences with her intense focus and virtuoso sound. Satoshi Takeishi is an extraordinary drummer, percussionist, and arranger. Come and hear this sultry new trio.
