Friday / September 8 / 8 p.m.
Named among Downbeat Magazine’s “Top 20 Jazz Drummers,” Allison Miller engages her deep roots in improvisation as a vehicle to explore all music. Her band, Boom Tic Boom, “recalls classic drummer-led ensembles of 50 years ago … [yet] works from a diverse sonic palette that is unmistakably contemporary” (The Wall Street Journal). This all-star ensemble breaks down musical barriers in fearless explorations of folk, funk, Latin, and klezmer music. A musician with enormous spirit and influence, “Miller’s craftiness as a percussionist is met by her ingenuity as a composer and group conceptualist” (The New Yorker).
