Saturday, March 4, 7:30 p.m. – Two sets of classical meets jazz!

Michael Bates’ Shostakovich Project

Michael Bates, double-bass/arrangements; Russ Johnson, trumpet;Marty Ehrlich, saxophone/clarinet; Russ Lossing, piano/Fender Rhodes; Michael Sarin, drums

Bassist Michael Bates' Sunnyside album Acrobat: Music for, and by, Shostakovich was one of the highlights of 2011, presenting his ingenious reimagining of the great Russian composer's music for jazz band. For his Sound It Out debut as a leader, Bates brings a great band to play pieces from that album – and arrangements for a second Shostakovich volume – at Greenwich House in two full sets. JazzTimes, reviewing Acrobat, praised Bates and company for “bringing these provocative pieces to life with their telepathic dynamic and sparkling improvisations.”

Tickets: $15 ($12 for students and seniors)
