Jazz at Lincoln Center
With pianist Myra Melford, bassist Mark Dresser, and drummer Matt Wilson Trio M is an all-star collective featuring pianist Myra Melford, bassist Mark Dresser, and drummer Matt Wilson. Each member is a prolific bandleader, significant composer, and first-call supporting musician. In this leaderless project, everyone contributes compositions that, in their live performance, are directed equally by all three improvising musicians. Fans of classic piano trios will find a lot to enjoy here, but this cutting-edge unit moves beyond the genre’s conventional structures, and the group is known for fun, unpredictable sets that cover a wide range of ideas. Anyone interested in accessible, modern improvised music should make an effort to catch Trio M in action.
