Fly!Fly!Fly! Tribute to Cecil Taylor

Rova: Arts

Ever in thrall of the brilliant music of the late pianist Cecil Taylor, Rova, along with eight other intrepid comrades in sound exploration, will present an homage to the iconoclastic innovator. A reworking of Mr. Taylor's album-length masterwork, Dark to Themselves, along with Positive Knowledge, a duo of Oluyemi and Ijeoma Thomas presenting the poetry of Cecil Taylor; and duo B. (Lisa Mezzacappa & Jason Levi)


This is what SF/Arts curator Jesse Hamlin had to say about Fly!Fly!Fly! Tribute to Cecil Taylor :

Rova Saxophone Quartet and other intrepid artists— among them bassist Lisa Mezzacappa and percussionist Jason Levis as duo B.—pay homage to the late pianist, composer and poet Cecil Taylor, a potent iconoclast whose opus “Dark to Themselves” Rova reworks with guitarist Henry Kaiser and others.
