Jazz Improv’s New York Jazz Guide for Lewis Nash (By Dan Bilawsky) and Marcus Strickland (by Christopher Lams)
“This fantastic jazz series presents all-acoustic jazz performances in a gorgeous and intimate setting… The current exhibit at the Rubin Museum focuses on Flying Mystics in Himalayan art, and the museum provided wonderful images and examples, via the screen behind the performers, that really helped to enhance the overall experience. The outstanding musical performance, intimate setting and wonderful art were all contributing factors to a truly enchanting evening of music.”
Jazz Improv’s New York Jazz Guide for Marcus Strickland (by Christopher Lams)
“The Rubin Museum […] has become one [of] the top venues in New York City to experience jazz performances.
“The group took a moment to dedicate a composition to the theme of the museum, which is Himalayan art. The piece “Ascent to the Tibetan Plateau” clearly showed the influence of Wayne Shorter on Mr. Strickland. His atonal structure during the piece with Tibetan images being flashed on the back stage wall was one of the highlights of the set.”
