Tuesday, March 28
7:00PM & 9:00PM
Ars Nova Workshop presents an evening with Mark Guiliana and his jazz quartet, with performances at 7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. at Solar Myth on Tuesday, March 28, 2023.
Mark Guiliana has become recognized as one of the world’s leading drummers, admired and in demand across the spectrum from jazz to rock to electronic music for his rhythmic sophistication, creative impulse, and individual sound. He has been in the vanguard of drummers creating a new vernacular on the instrument, blending virtuosity on acoustic drums with artfully deployed electronic beats and processing.
“Guiliana, a technical master with a rare sense of musicality, has over the past decade become one of the most influential drummers of his generation.”
Along with leading his own groups—the acoustic Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet and electronica-minded Beat Music—the drummer has appeared on a string of acclaimed recordings with others. The verve and precision of Guiliana’s drumming was a prime mover of Blackstar, David Bowie’s multiple Grammy Award-winning final album. Guiliana teamed with keyboardist Brad Mehldau as the duo Mehliana for the Nonesuch release Taming the Dragon. He has also collaborated with such artists as saxophonist Donny McCaslin, guitar hero John Scofield, Soundgarden/Pearl Jam drummer-songwriter Matt Cameron, neo-soul singer-songwriter Meshell Ndegeocello, guitarist-vocalist Lionel Loueke, jazz bassist Avishai Cohen, reggae/hip-hop artist Matisyahu and jazz singer Gretchen Parlato.
