Daniel Carter/Jeff Platz Quartet at the Mandorla Music Series

  • Third Life Studio 33 Union Square Somerville, MA, 02143 United States

Thrilled to have NYC free jazz legend Daniel Carter and frequent collaborator guitarist Jeff Platz back to the Mandorla Music Series! Active since the early 1970s, reeds, flute & trumpet player Daniel Carter has played not just with such seminal contemporary free jazz figures as William Parker, Hamid Drake and Matthew Shipp but also with other such diverse performers as Yo La Tengo, Thurston Moore, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Vernon Reid and DJ Logic, among many others. Jeff Platz is well known to audiences in Boston, New York and Europe for his many adventurous ensembles and what one reviewer recently called his "classic jazz guitar tone and an expansive palette of sounds and colors." Carter and Platz have worked together extensively, including on Jeff's 2013 release 'Past and Present Futures.' Bassist Damon Smith and drummer Matt Crane round out this new quartet. Very exciting stuff. $15.
