In August Soundwaves presented pianist Dana Reason. Her work combines improvisation and composition, drawing on experimental aspects of jazz, classical music, and other forms.
She was joined by Soundwaves curator Jeff Schwartz on bass and drummer Peter Valsamis.
Reason’s duo album with shakuhachi player and vegan chef Philip Gelb can be heard on DRAM; Valsamis appears on DRAM with the free jazz trio Sound on Survival, with Lisle Ellis and Marco Eneidi.
