Whit Dickey on the Musician's Show

Wednesday, July 1, 2015 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Tune in Wednesday evening from 6:00-9:00 PM to hear this week's edition of the Musician's Show, where we will be joined by drummer Whit Dickey. Throughout the 90s he performed and recorded with the groups of saxophonist David S. Ware and pianist Matthew Shipp. In 1996 he took a break from these groups and devoted his efforts to advancing his own compositions. This period resulted in the album Transonic, his first as a leader, recorded in 1997 and released in 1998 on the AUM Fidelity label. On it he is joined by saxophonist Rob Brown and bassist Chris Lightcap. Since then he has recorded numerous albums the musicians in this trio as well as Joe Morris, Roy Campbell, Mat Maneri, Ivo Perelman, Michael Bisio, Sabir Mateen, and Matthew Shipp, whose trio he rejoined in 2007. The Matthew Shipp Trio released The Art of the Improviser in 2011 to great acclaim. Even more recently, Dickey started Blood Trio with Bisio and Mateen. Be sure to tune in this Wednesday night!
