At the keyboard, Melford recasts the blues and boogie-woogie of her Chicago hometown, folds in elements of the music of Eastern Europe and India and blends them with the rangy, percussive avant-garde stylings she cultivated in studies with Don Pullen and Henry Threadgill. She will be accompanied by her electro-acoustic quartet, Be Bread, which features trumpeter Cuong Vu and guitarist Brandon Ross, along with bassist Stomu Takeishi and drummer Elliot Humberto Kavee.
