Marilyn Crispell & Tani Tabbal play Bearsville

Two leading lights of experimental jazz, the legendary pianist Marilyn Crispell and drummer Tani Tabbal, team for a duet performance at the Bearsville Theater on Saturday, August 8 at 8 p.m. The longtime area resident Crispell has been a fixture in the avant-garde world for decades. Though she received her imprimatur from the distinguished composer and reed-player Anthony Braxton, Crispell is best-known for her improvisational solo and duet recordings, including several highly regarded live dates recorded in Woodstock-area venues.

Tani Tabbal has been an A-list “free jazz” sideman since his early work with the Sun Ra Arkestra. He has released several excellent records as leader/composer in recent years as well, and has performed frequently locally with his trio.

Admission to this performance costs $20 and $30. The Bearsville Theater is located at 291 Tinker Street in Woodstock. For more information, visit
