Dan Weiss / Miles Okazaki Duo

Dan Weiss (drums), Miles Okazaki (guitar)

Oct 21, 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM

Sam First, 6171 W Century Blvd #180, Los Angeles, CA 90045, USA

Miles Okazaki and Dan Weiss have been performing as a duo for over two decades. In early years their repertoire was focused largely on the translations of tabla material to drumset from the albums Tintal Drumset Solo and Jhaptal Drumset Solo. Gradually they incorporated a wide range of materials from the albums that they worked on together as well as covers and standards. In 2020, they each wrote complete suites for guitar and drums (commissioned by John Zorn) that were recorded and released on the album "Music for Drums and Guitar". This concert will feature music from The Memory Palace and Middlegame, the extended pieces written for this latest album.

“composer-improvisers of absurdly expansive imaginative resources. Both pieces feel intricately designed yet wide open to possibility, and to the whims of a nearly telepathic rapport.” -WBGO, “Take Five” 

“Both are absolute masters on their instruments . . . they are both deeply dedicated to realizing each other’s artistic visions.” -The Paris Review 

“a high-order musical brainteaser and a memento of a deep, longstanding mind-meld between these two” -Hank Shteamer

All shows at Sam First are 21+ (no one under the age of 21 will be permitted)
