Tiger Trio

NYU Washington, DC co-hosted one of CapitalBop's fall Traveling Loft Series featuring Myra Melford’s Tiger Trio, an international all-star group of improvisers.

The trio features three musicians — Melford on piano, Nicole Mitchell on flute and Joëlle Léandre on upright bass — who are all renowned players in the improvised music world. Together they come up with something even bigger and greater than the sum of it parts; veteran critic Ken Waxman says the trio makes “unique, affirmative music that demands no qualifier.”

The concert also included Susan Alcorn who opened for the Tiger Trio.
