Cristian Amigo Trio

Award-winning guitarist, composer, improviser and producer Cristian Amigo (Elliott Sharp, Wadada Leo Smith, John Cage Big Band, Carlos Hayre, Bern Nix, INTAR Latino Theater) convenes one of his “dream bands” for the occasion of the Latin Free Jazz Festival in New York City. J.D. Parran (Anthony Braxton, Derek Bailey, John Lennon, Stevie Wonder) plays the wind instruments, and Andrew Drury is the drummer. Afro-Diasporic references, extended techniques, rhythmic invention, timbre, color, density and energy will inform their free and structured improvisation. This appearance marks their debut as an improvising trio.  More info/video/sounds at cristianamigo.com

” Guitarist-composer Cristian Amigo straddles the contemporary-classical, improv and rock worlds. During any given performance, Messiaen grapples with Led Zeppelin while Perez Prado teaches Stravinsky to mambo.”

– TIME OUT NEW YORK

“Cristian Amigo is an excellent creative artist, guitarist and composer whose works reflect his concern with tradition and innovation in creative music in America.”

– WADADA LEO SMITH (AACM composer/trumpeter)
