Join us for an evening of jazz with Miles Okazaki playing original compositions from his new album Trickster.
Trickster is Miles Okazaki’s fourth album of original compositions. The album was released on Pi Recordings in 2017 to great acclaim, called “a brilliant individual statement” and “a mature work for the ages” by Pop Matters, “a true concept album” by the Wall Street Journal, and “an expression of deep, systemic intrigue” by the New York Times.
Trickster made best of 2017 lists on Pop Matters and the Los Angeles Times, and was an Editor’s Pick at both Downbeat and JazzTimes. The album features Craig Taborn on Piano, Anthony Tidd on Bass, and Sean Rickman on drums. Recent performances have included Matt Mitchell on piano.
