Sound It Out: Francisco Mela’s MTP Trio with Cooper-Moore

November 9, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Event Navigation

Drummer-bandleader Francisco Mela – who has thrilled Sound It Out audiences in multiple shows, including both sold-out “Monk on Guitars” fundraisers in the series – returns to Greenwich House to lead his own inventive MPT Trio with saxophonist Hery Paz and guitarist Juanma Trujillo, plus special guest Cooper-Moore on piano/percussion.

Mela – who has been described as “one of the most important Cuban drummers in jazz” by JazzTimes, with a style that’s “expressive” and “expansive” according to All About Jazz – has played with the heavy-weight likes of McCoy Tyner, Joe Lovano, John Scofield, Jason Moran, Chucho Valdés, Mark Turner, Lionel Loueke and Kris Davis. The iconic pianist Tyner has said: “Mela is just a fantastic player. He has his own style and his own sound.”

Tickets are $15 at the door.
