This brand new piece of music is intended to be listened to from start to finish, with a brief intermission. A single ticket will cover the entire night of music - Luca Mendoza (piano), Logan Richardson (saxophone), Logan Kane (bass), Damion Reid (drums)
Aug 10, 2022, 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM
Sam First, 6171 W Century Blvd #180, Los Angeles, CA 90045, USA
Luca Mendoza premiers his composition "Foundations," a massive long form piece which spans both sets. Motifs, themes, and sound worlds mutate and merge over the three acts. The first and second sets act as mirrors; the first introduces the musical characters and the second reveals who they become when pushed to their limit.
Luca Mendoza is a pianist and composer and a Los Angeles Philharmonic Composer Fellow, the 2020 Downbeat Magazine Music Award Best College Soloist, a National YoungArts Foundation Finalist, and a Los Angeles Music Center Spotlight Grand Prize Winner. His music explores the confluence of classical, jazz, hip-hop, and electronic music.
All shows at Sam First are 21+ (no one under the age of 21 will be permitted)
