The Thirteenth Assembly
December 1, 2007 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm EST
The Thirteenth Assembly is a touring collective made up of four musicians (Mary Halvorson, Jessica Pavone, Taylor Ho Bynum and Tomas Fujiwara) organized into four different and musically distinct small ensembles. Styled somewhere between the classic r&b/soul revues of the 60’s and a postmodern traveling circus, The Thirteenth Assembly presents a selection of some of the latest-emerging young artists and bands in New York’s creative music scene in one package. Over the course of an evening, each group performs a thirty-minute-minute set, offering a glimpse of the vibrant and varied stylistic diversity and creativity of this particular musical community. The ensembles are: The Thirteen Four, Taylor Ho Bynum/Tomas Fujiwara Duo, Mary Halvorson/Jessica Pavone Duo, Taylor Ho Bynum Trio (with Mary Halvorson & Tomas Fujiwara).
Presented with support from the One of the 13-part “Free Jazz from the Sanctuary” series recorded live at The Sanctuary for Independent Media – a unique celebration of freedom through creative expression.
