Brooklyn, NY: Roulette presents Thelonious Monk International Saxophone Competition winner Jon Irabagon’s Threedom Trio, featuring seasoned, accomplished master musicians Barry Altschul and Joe Fonda. These three powerhouse performers bring a wealth of acclaim and experience to the table with careers that have spanned the globe and in the case of Altschul and Fonda, many successful generations.
The Jon Irabagon Threedom Trio incorporates the complete jazz lineage, from rag time to no time. This all-inclusive approach utilizes standards, changes, forms and melodies as well as noises, calls, cries and sounds to create a sound that is both familiar and new simultaneously. Altschul and Fonda's longtime partnership in the FAB Trio (with the late Billy Bang), coupled with Irabagon and Altschul's recent work together (Foxy, Hot Cup Records) leads to a cohesive unit that explores proactive group interaction with both delicacy and fire.
Roulette – one of New York City’s premiere venues for experimental music for over 33 years - has reopened bigger and better than ever. Located in a newly renovated 1920s Art Deco concert hall in Downtown Brooklyn, the new Roulette features two levels of seating for up to 400 people (600 standing), an expanded multi-channel sound system, projection screen for film and multi-media events, state-of-the-art lighting system, modular stage, and a specially designed floor to accommodate dance. Teamed with bold new programming, the new Roulette promises to be one of the most exciting places in New York City - if not the country - to experience adventurous music and art.
