Wolfgang Muthspiel Trio feat. Scott Colley, Brian Blade at The Jazz Standard, NYC, April 14-15
Dates: April 14 & 15
Auditorium: The Jazz Standard
  116 E 27th Street

Web: http://www.jazzstandard.com

The Wolfgang Muthspiel Trio celebrates its new ECM release 'Angular Blues', out in late March, with a US tour. The tour will be kicked off with two performances at the Jazz Standard in New York City. Wolfgang Muthspiel, whom The New Yorker has called "a shining light" among today's jazz guitarists, returns to the trio format with 'Angular Blues', the Austrian's fourth ECM album as a leader, following two acclaimed quintet releases and his trio debut. Like Driftwood - the 2014 trio disc that JazzTimes dubbed "cinematic" and "haunting" - 'Angular Blues' finds Muthspiel paired with longtime collaborator Brian Blade on drums; but instead of Larry Grenadier on bass, it's Scott Colley, whose especially earthy sound helps give this trio its own dynamic.
