Aakash Mittal Quartet feat. Rick Parker

Join us for a night of high energy improvisation, electronic textures, and compelling original music. Internationally acclaimed trombonist Rick Parker will be collaborating with local Indian-jazz artist Aakash Mittal to create a program that will transcend cultures and genres. The brooklyn based Parker uses electronics to create avant sound scapes that weave in and out of his improvised melodies. Mittal composes and improvises from a vocabulary that bridges north Indian raga music and jazz.

Featuring:
Rick Parker: Trombone
Aakash Mittal: Alto Saxophone
Greg Harris: Vibraphone
Ken Walker: Bass
Antwon Owens: Drums

“Parker hones a seductive, burnished
tone that's animated by conversational
improvisations.” John Murph, Downbeat
Magazine

"Because of the balance between tough improvisation and bright harmonies coupled with thorough investigations into the rhythms of the music of India, he's [Mittal] already arrived at his own place in the jazz community, where it's difficult to establish an identity."
Bret Saunders, Denver Post

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
