New Mark Dresser Quartet: August 15 @ SD Museum of Art

Dresser and Maroney go way back. Nordeson is originally from Sweden and the violinist must be something special.

"It's a first outing with this band. I'm excited," says contrabass master Mark Dresser who opens his concert series at the San Diego Museum of Art on August 15 with a quartet featuring NYC "hyper-pianist" Denman Maroney, drummer Kjell Nordeson and 18 year old violinist David Boroff.

"I first heard about David from Anthony Davis who is his composition teacher," Dresser said. "Not only is he a violinist of uncommon virtuosity and expressivity, but he has an incredible ear. He won a full scholarship to the Berklee School of Music in composition."

I've seen Dresser perform with Maroney before, and I can guarantee that minds will be blown, sonically.

"I have a strong feeling that Denman's hyper-piano in which he bows the strings with tools will create complimentary sonorities to arco violin and bass," says Dresser.

I just caught Nordeson in the latest version of Dresser's West Coast Quintet, and can vouch for his kinetic energy and mastery of dynamics.

I'm guessing that this concert will score high on the top-ten list come December.

If you are a member of the Museum of Art, the concert, (which begins at 7 pm), is free. Non-members pay a mere $12.
