Marc Ribot: The Jazz-Bins
February 23, 2023 8:00pm
Ars Nova Workshop presents the return of genre-blurring guitar wizard Marc Ribot with his new organ trio The Jazz-Bins at Solar Myth on February 23, 2023.
The first international tour guitarist Marc Ribot embarked on back in 1979 was as a member of Captain Jack McDuff’s Hammond B-3 combo. The pair didn’t always see eye-to-eye musically and never got around to recording anything together, but the soul vs. punk ethos that collided in Ribot’s playing on that gig has shone through in his music ever since. In launching his own, typically irreverent organ trio he has found a simpatico groove partner in Hammond B-3 dynamo Greg Lewis, who straddles the tradition’s greasy side with a more modern post-bop sensibility, including his long-running practice of translating the harmonically tricky and melodically jagged music of Thelonious Monk. Their new collective the Jazz-Bins features a revolving cast of drummers – their Philadelphia performance will feature Ars Nova-regular Chad Taylor. The same funk vs. punk approach endures, but here their polarities are more intense with more traditional blues forms.
