Rhys Chatham at Lincoln Center (more by Tim Griffin)
Rhys Chatham

Avant great Rhys Chatham will step away from the six-strings and strap on the trumpet for a string of US dates as Rhys Chatham's Brass Trio, kicking off the trek with a headlining date at Le Poisson Rouge on Feb 9th. Tickets are still available.

His band, which consists of David Daniell on guitar and Ryan Sawyer on drums, will be joined at LPR by violin deconstructionist Tony Conrad and Face the Music, "an ensemble of astonishingly talented teenagers... in residence at the Kaufman Center" who will be performing avant composer Steve Reich's "Tehillim".

Rhys Chatham released his last LP A Crimson Grail via Nonesuch in the tail end of last year. Stream portions of that LP at the Nonesuch site where you can order it on CD/LP/digital.
