Todd Sickafoose’s Tiny Resisters Tonight at BAM Cafe

It’s been a minute since the bassist-composer’s cagey outfit dropped a new disc. But he’s been spending his time wisely. Chamber Music America commissioned “Bear Proof,” which the Cali-grown Sickafoose describes as a “wordless portrait of booms, busts, prospects & ruin in our golden state.”

If it’s anything like the fascinating Rubik’s cubes that have become the bandleader’s trademark, lookout. Zig-zag melodies and pan-textural forays lunge for the heart in his work, and his best charts have a way of making math-y notions sound sentimental.
