are often won with
positioning of a little white lie
Always put on Your sincere face”
-Thollem (performing 8p, January 19 @ Easy Lemon)
Tyler Shepherd (principal bassist for the Chattanooga Symphony) in this short interview and improvisation with me. Tyler and I will premiere my new piece for prepared-bass and prepared-piano during his Easy Lemon residency: Jan 15-19.
Terry Riley said of pianist/improviser Thollem McDonas: “He inhabits a world uniquely his own, rhythmically, harmonically and formally. A true original.” Hailing from San Francisco, Thollem McDonas tours extensively across the U.S. and Europe; his recordings from the past six years alone number over twenty and include collaborations with musicians too numerous to mention here.

We are excited to welcome Thollem to our loft on January 19 (Thursday evening) at 8pm! This will be a one-night performance, and you will NOT want to miss it. A huge thank-you to the Shaking Ray Levi Society for helping arrange this performance!
