Timucua hosts master jazz bassist Michael Bisio for a rare solo performance


  • Peter Gannuskin
Cutting-edge jazz bassist Michael Bisio - best known for his telepathic collaborative work with improv firebrands Matthew Shipp and Joe McPhee – is currently a visiting Master Artist as part of New Smyrna’s Atlantic Center for the Arts’ artist residency programs. So while he is creating on his own and working with small groups of students at the Atlantic Center directly, local music heads are benefitting from the residency in the form of this one-off “outreach” show that is part and parcel of the program. The BBC has hailed Bisio as “fleet-fingered and pitch-perfect,” and his various projects with Shipp and Charles Gayle and solo works are required listening for fans of avant-garde jazz. On Monday, Bisio will be performing a series of solo bass workouts at the Timucua White House (and nowhere else!), so consider this a way to dull the pain of a Monday.

7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30 | Timucua White House, 2000 S. Summerlin Ave. | timucua.com | donations encouraged
