Tickets and information

Mike McGinnis – clarinet, soprano saxophone
Art Lande – piano
Steve Swallow – bass

This magical trio drew full houses to Jazz Standard last year, performing the music of reed master Mike McGinnis’s Sunnyside album In A Dream. Tonight, McGinnis and his venerable elders, pianist Art Lande and bassist Steve Swallow, return to our stage with new music from a new Sunnyside release, appropri­ately entitled Recurring Dream. 14 compositions were recorded at Systems Two in Brooklyn, Mike told Dan Ouellette in DownBeat: “I was wondering, ‘am I going to be good enough to play with these two guys?’ But from the first note, I realized that it was sounding like what I had been hearing in my head for 10 years.” As a clarinetist and saxophonist, Mike McGinnis can swing in the straight–ahead tradition, improvise on the furthest edge of the avant–garde, or navigate the rigorous turns of a contemporary clas­sical composi­tion. As a composer, he brings deep commitment and personal vision to every musical situa­tion, from Anthony Braxton and Steve Coleman to indie rockers Yo La Tengo and the Tony Award–winning musical Passing Strange.
