This evening features a very specialmeeting of new and old friends. Jazz legend and master improviser saxophonist Oliver Lake is reunited with guitar wizard Michael Gregory Jackson. In the late 70s and early 80s, they cut a sting of classic albums together with Pheeron akLaff changing the sound of the sax/guitar/drums trio format (Bill Frisell has cited Michael Gregory Jackson as an influence). Since then, Lake has been very active playing with the World Saxophone Quartet, Meshell Ndegeochello and others and recorded dozens of classic albums as a leader. Michael Gregory Jackson disapeared from the New York scene for many years and this is a rare chance to see him perform his highly personal guitar style in the city. This event is the lastin a series of concerts at Cornelia Street Cafe centered around Danish drummer/composer Kresten Osgood. Osgood, one of Scandinavias most active players and a leader of the vibrant improvised music scene in Copenhagen, has collaborated with such diverse musicians as Sam Rivers, Derek Bailey, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Tim Berne, Steven Bernstein, Dr. Lonnie Smith and Michael Blake.
