Sat, Jan 29, 2005 @ Tonic, NYC

8:30pm Harriet Tubman plus Vernon Reid and Masque plus Dave Fiuczynski's KiF
$25, $20 in advance

Harriet Tubman: With Melvin Gibbs (bass guitar), Brandon Ross (guitar) & J.T. Lewis (drums). A meltdown of rock-hard drumming, ultradeep bass, and soaring streams of guitar leaves mouths agape and minds streaming. A meeting of three intense musical personalities whose individual brilliance and collective experience includes work with Herbie Hancock, Lou Reed, Cassandra Wilson, Sonny Sharrock, Vernon Reid, Caetano Veloso, Henry Rollins, Muhal Richard Abrams and Henry Threadgill.

Vernon Reid and Masque:

Dave Fiuczynski's KiF: Eastern-Exotica, Western Exstatica – an Arabeo-funk-jazz group featuring cellist Rufus Cappadocia. The Fuze is a guitar man with “chops up the wazoo... and a surplus of fire and intensity.” — Guitar Player
