Following Dreamhouse, a major multi-media project with painter/sculptor Cy Twombly, a week residency at the Banff Centre International Workshop in Jazz, a co-directorship of the Vancouver Creative Music Institute and a recent duo concert with violinist Michelle Makarsky in Woodstock, NY, Crispell is excited about her upcoming activities. This month she teaches a master class and performs solo at the University of Wisconsin, followed by a Miller Theater gig in Manhattan, where her trio joins forces for the first time with tenor titan Joe Lovano; in November she'll reunite with Makarsky for England's Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, followed by solo recitals in Europe. With two new ECM recordings, solo and trio, on the horizon, Crispell is on the move, with plenty to look back on, and forward to.
