Tres Hongos @ Audio for the Arts, Thursday, January 3, 8pm
Tres Hongos is a trio comprised of Bay Area trumpeter Jacob Wick (White Rocket, HighLife), pianist Marc Riordan (Wishgift, Old Idea) and percussionist Frank Rosaly (Fast Citizens, Mandarin Movie, Rolldown), both from Chicago. The trio explores long and short form improvisation that draws influences from a wide range of sound and music traditions, from the improvised to the strictly composed. Their improvised performances are characterized by sudden, playful shifts between static harmonies and tones, modular melodies, pointillistic interplay and dense, percussive assaults. Tres Hongos is three modern musicians in suits.
