The New Yorker previews Stone residency

“Eisenstadt has soaked up idiomatic rhythms in Africa and Cuba, collaborated extensively with such forward-thinking musicians as Yusef Lateef and Wadada Leo Smith, and devoted as much time to composing as he has to drumming. For this residency, he employs his deep-sighted and elastic view of improvised music in settings that are both small-scale (a duet with Graham Haynes on cornet and electronics) and expansive (a large band that finds Eisenstadt conducting rather than behind the drum kit).” – Steve Futterman

New York Times previews Poschiavo 50 at The Owl

HARRIS EISENSTADT’S ‘POSCHIAVO 50’ AND PLAY at the Owl (Jan. 18, 7:30 p.m.). Mr. Eisenstadt, a drummer, is also possessed of a cinematic compositional voice. He wrote 50 short pieces during a residency at the Uncool Festival in Switzerland last year, and he’s been gradually unveiling them at the Owl, playing one show per month since November. For each concert he’s enlisted one or two different collaborators; at this one he’ll be joined by two fellow percussionists: Patricia Brennan on vibraphone and Chris Dingman on marimba.
