Stein/Smith/Shead Trio + Mai Khoi, Mark Micchelli, & Eli Namay

April 25, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

With the health, well-being, and comfort of all as our top priorities, City of Asylum requires that our staff, artists, and all those attending an event be fully vaccinated. Please click here to learn more about our Covid 19 policies. 

The collaborative trio of Jason Stein, Damon Smith, and Adam Shead feature a fluid music making process of spontaneous composition that is as rhythmically driving as it is melodically complex. 

The Stein/Smith/Shead trio (from Chicago) will perform an opening set of music followed by a collaborative set with Pittsburgh locals Mai Khoi, Mark Micchelli, and Eli Namay. To end the evening the six musicians will engage in a casual conversation and Q&A with the audience discussing concepts of composition, improvisation, collaboration, improvised music history, and much more. 

This is a must-see evening for contemporary jazz fans and anyone curious in the improvisation process. 

Featured Musicians: 

Jason Stein:  bass clarinet 

Damon Smith: double bass

Adam Shead: drums

Mai Khoi: voice

Mark Micchelli – piano

Eli Namay: double bass
