The DMG FREE Weekly In-Store Performance Series Continues With:

Sunday, July 23rd: 6pm: BILLY MINTZ QUINTET: TONY MALABY / JOHN GROSS / ROBERTA PIKET / HILLIARD GREENE! 7pm: MAT MANERI / TANYA KALMANOVITCH - LP Release Set!

At the end of last summer (2016), the ever in-demand and immensely diverse drummer, BILLY MINTZ, left us with a CD of his current quintet. You would never know from Mr. Mintz’s modest, unassuming demeanor that he is one of the best drummers around, a strong composer and a smart bandleader. His quintet features a two tenor frontline: the ubiquitous TONY MALABY (Open Loose & way too many other great situations) and JOHN GROSS, a superfine west coast saxist who again rarely gets the recognition he deserves. The secret weapon here is Mintz’s partner, ROBERTA PIKET, a gifted pianist and keyboard player who also never ceases to amaze those who listen closely to her wide ranging output. Ms. Piket released a superb tribute to Marian McPartland, last year that you should really check out. Bassist HILLIARD GREENE is way too busy to peg down to any one thing, although he has worked Billy Bang. Dave Douglas, Patrick Brennan and many others. Mintz's quintet are incredible to so...

MAT MANERI and TANYA KALMANOVICH both play viola. Mr. Maneri is a longtime Downtown staple who has worked with a number of our most creative improvisers: Matt Shipp, Joe Morris, Lucian Ban and Cecil Taylor. Check out his playing with the Ches Smith Trio disc on ECM! Originally from Canada, Ms. Kalmanovitch has her own quintet and has recorded with Myra Melford and Ivo Perelman. This great duo has a recently self-released 2 LP set that is a treasure to behold! This looks to be one of great double bills of the year and the admission is FREE!

Sunday, July 30th: 6pm: PABLO DIAZ and PAULA SHOCRON - From the Argentinian Underground - New CD on HATology! 7pm: JESSE DULMAN - Solo Tuba

Sunday, August 6th: 6pm: PAPER BALLS DUO: DAVID GROLLMAN / JEFF BARSKY!

DAVID GROLLMAN plays snare drum in a completely original way! Mr. Grollman is longtime supporter of the DMG in-store series and we never know which weird character he will tap into when he performs. Don't mis this one!
