Sound It Out: Devin Gray’s GPS Trio + Wendy Eisenberg
December 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$15
Ever-evolving drummer-composer Devin Gray – who played the second show in the Sound It Out series back in 2012 and has come back many times since as a leader and sideman – returns to the Greenwich House stage to celebrate the release of the first album with his trio featuring saxophonist Chris Pitsiokos and bassist Luke Stewart. About Devin’s art, Jazzwise magazine has said: “A musician-drummer rather than a drummer-drummer, Gray is interested in making music that is deeply evocative… shaped by a fizzing, often restless push-pull energy.”
Devin’s hand-picked solo opener for the show is guitarist Wendy Eisenberg. Billboard magazine has said that Wendy can play “with the ferocity of a cobra,” as well as disarm with the poetically contemplative. She has performed with the likes of Matt Mitchell, Trevor Dunn, Ches Smith and Joe Morris, as well as premiered works by John Zorn and Maria Schneider.
Tickets are $15 at the door, $12 for students and seniors
