New Zion Trio @ Cornelia Street Sunday Night

image

The way Jamie Saft funnels his piano visions through a dub filter is one of the most arresting variations on the trad trio sound that has come along in ages. Imagine Ahmad Jamal genuflecting to Haile Selassie while receiving whispered advice from local rabbi Scratch Perry and you’ve got an inkling where this interplay-addicted outfit and its hypnotic riddims are headed on any given night. Their Fight Against Babylon will take you away for awhile, no doubt.

8:30 pm  $10  Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street.   212-989-9319
