Zach Brock (Snarky Puppy, Stanley Clarke) and Phil Markowitz (Chet Baker, Toots Thielemans) have created new repertoire for violin and piano that draws on the traditions of jazz, contemporary classical, and the “roots” music of their respective backgrounds. The first iteration of this new direction appeared on the 2014 release “Perpetuity” and they have been expanding their duo repertoire ever since. While an affinity for American jazz is front-and-center, Brock’s Appalachian roots and Markowitz’s Eastern European ancestry have sown deep threads that run through the new compositions. The audience will hear an unorthodox combination of postRomantic, serialist, and jazz dialects fused with rhythms from West Africa, South America, and the Balkans.
