Brian Marsella / Sae Hashimoto and Miguel Zenon / Matt Mitchell / Miles Okazaki at Miller Theatre

Read "Brian Marsella / Sae Hashimoto and Miguel Zenon / Matt Mitchell / Miles Okazaki at Miller Theatre" reviewed by Paul Reynolds


Brian Marsella / Sae Hashimoto and Miguel Zenon / Matt Mitchell / Miles Okazaki Miller Theatre New York, NY June 9 and June 27, 2023 Underappreciated--perhaps because it's on the Columbia University campus in New York's upper Upper West Side--Miller Theater's innovative music programming favors contemporary classical music with a splash of jazz. But it's rare for its programs to straddle the two genres as much as did the two last 2023 installments of ...

The Nels Cline Singers: Share The Wealth

A work of pummeling beauty, exhaustion and exhilaration await at the end of genre rogue guitarist Nels Cline's upheaval Share the Wealth, eighty minutes of magical, maniacal, free jam composition that, in perhaps a few more years down the line--if the line makes it past Election Day--we'll argue stands right up there with such and such album of equal fire and fury. Time, to which we've become too nervously accustomed, is tense, and everyone's cranked to ten or ...
