Myele Manzanza Trio with Quartetto Fantastico and?Nina Andrews
Although its main inhabitants are sheep, New Zealand is rather progressive. (For example, prostitution and gay marriage are legal - though not with those sheep.) It's no wonder that so much innovative music has recently come from the other Down Under. The Myele Manzanza Trio features three Kiwis, not the fruit but rare birds who are blurring the boundaries of jazz, soul and electronica, compelling folks to get down under a mirror ball. Manzanza learned about rhythm from his father, a Congolese master percussionist, and he made some beautiful noise with New Zealand - based Electric Wire Hustle. On tour to promote his solo debut, One, he is joined tonight by virtuoso bassist Ben Shepherd and pianist/sound wizard Mark de Clive-Lowe. Quartetto Fantastico (led by string master Miguel Atwood-Ferguson) and vocalist Nia Andrews complete the band. DJs Carlos Nino and Jeremy Sole will ensure the fun doesn't cease until closing time.
