Kronos is thrilled to be performing with composer and percussionist Glenn Kotche -- a.k.a. the Grammy-winning band Wilco's drummer -- at the SFJAZZ Festival in San Francisco next week! His new piece for string quartet and drum kit, titled Anomaly, was commissioned by SFJAZZ and will receive its world premiere performance at Herbst Theater on October 25 and 26.
Also joining Kronos at the SFJAZZ festival will be instrument builder and sound artist Walter Kitundu, whose Cerulean Sweet III honors jazz great Charles Mingus through the use of snippets of his piano improvisations on vinyl played by Kronos and Kitundu on phonoharps, the instruments created by Kitundu for this piece. The concert will also feature the US premiere of Sinawi by Bay Area performance artist Dohee Lee, who will join Kronos on stage for these shows, a new arrangement of Thelonious Monk's 'Round Midnight by Randall Woolf, music by cartoon music master Raymond Scott and cartoon music-influenced John Zorn, and a rare performance of Kronos's legendary version of Television's Marquee Moon. Don't miss it!
