Doom Jazz

featuring Bobby Previte and Jamie Saft

Doom Jazz

Thursday, September 25, 2008

Bezanson Recital Hall   8:00 pm

In one sense a piano trio, with Previte on drums and Saft doubling on piano and electric bass, this project borrows from heavy rock sensibilities. Using doom - a slow, foreboding style of heavy metal - as a template, the duo crafts music that creeps along powerfully. "Bobby Previte is in many ways the archetypal 21st Century Musician," states The Penguin Guide, "open-eared, adventurous, uncategorizable and technically flawless." Saft's stylistic versatility, multi-instrumentalist capabilities, and production skills have been featured with The Beastie Boys, Bad Brains, The B-52's, Laurie Anderson, John Zorn and John Adams.
