LINE-UP

CRAIG TABORN
ALISTAIR PAYNE
LUCIJA GREGOV

Craig taborn

New York pianist Craig Taborn consistently captivates audiences with his performances. Fans of jazz, contemporary classical, and electronic music admire his detailed exploration of the piano’s sound. Especially since his solo album Avenging Angel, he’s been recognized as one of the best jazz pianists alive by The New York Times, de Volkskrant, and more. Ten years after this landmark solo album, Taborn released a second, Shadow Play, on ECM Records, recorded live at the Mozart-Saal of the Wiener Konzerthaus. Taborn gained recognition through collaborations with James Carter and Roscoe Mitchell, and he’s worked with peers like Vijay Iyer, Chris Potter, and Dave King, drummer for The Bad Plus.

LUCIJA GREGOV

Lucija Gregov is a cellist, improviser, and sound artist whose work describes and explores new sonic landscapes, integrating analogue synthesizers and field recordings into her compositions along the way. By engaging in interdisciplinary and often community-oriented work, she pushes traditional cello boundaries, creating a dynamic approach to her improvisation and sound art.

ALISTAIR PAYNE

Alistair Payne is a prominent figure in the Dutch jazz scene. Originally from Scotland, the trumpeter operates beyond established norms. His use of extended techniques is a natural part of his playing, where he embraces both physical and mental challenges. While he rarely performs solo, this promises to be a memorable event.

This afternoon is part of Space is the Place’s Spring Program. Catch us 13 April at BIMHUIS, 18 & 19 May at Music Meeting (Nijmegen), 31 May for An International Anthem Showcase at Paradiso Noord, and 1 June at CALL Festival in Plantage Dok.
