Pianist Michael Wolff returns to The Flea Theater, as part of the new 'Music @ The Flea' Series. Wolff is joined by tabla-master Badal Roy, guitarist Thad DeBrock and Richie Goods on bass.
Known primarily as a jazz pianist, Wolff's recent concerts have fused multiple genres into an amalgam closer to atmospheric world/rock music. The addition of Thad DeBrock's guitar (and sonic effects) and Richie Good's electric bass have given Wolff's shows a dreamy, ethereal quality. Mix in Wolff's covers of songs by such bands as Radiohead, Rolling Stones and Coldplay, and you've got an unexpected performance by an artist who is expanding his artistic horizons before your very eyes.
Michael Wolff is finishing up a new CD, and these intimate evenings at The Flea Theater preview multiple tracks from the new album. The upcoming release, as yet untitled, includes a song recorded with the African Children's Choir, a powerful new track about the devastation in New Orleans, and a surprising and eclectic mix of original and cover tunes.
