Mark Dresser Trio

Mark Dresser Trio


“In Dresser’s slanted compositions, the jazz tradition is only so much grist for the mill.” 
—The New Yorker

Los Angeles premiere
The Herb Alpert Creative Music Series


Since 1983, Mark Dresser has been expanding the sonic possibilities of the double bass through solo and collaborative projects that explore the musical, technical, and social dimensions of live and telematic performance. From his early years working with Tim Berne, Anthony Braxton and John Zorn, Dresser has displayed an inquisitive disregard for conventional musical boundaries. In the Mark Dresser Trio he is joined by “hyperpianist” Denman Maroney and flautist Matthias Ziegler to push their shared artistic obsessions to even greater heights, making use of unconventional amplification and extended techniques to explore new worlds of sound and intuitive collaboration.
