Harris Eisenstadt Old Growth Forest + Jeb Bishop/Jorrit Dijkstra Duo ≈ June 10th, Start 5:30pm/ Doors 5pm

Formed during Harris Eisenstadt’s September, 2015 residency at The Stone, Old Growth Forest released its first recording on Clean Feed in 2016. An old growth forest is one that has been left untouched, a place that has been allowed to follow its own natural course, without interruption.

“Poised as ever, Eisenstadt generates a rustling understory in which his rhythmic shifts and embellishments subtly prompt and push his colleagues,” writes John Sharpe. “Roebke presents a melodic but meaty presence in the middle level while Malaby and Bishop create a canopy not only full of overlapping forms, but also the gaps that permit illumination of what goes on beneath. Malaby’s unpredictable delivery and love of unconventional texture in particular keeps the ears pricked while Bishop’s garrulous yet honeyed trombone affords a fine foil.”
