On Friday, March 29th, Firehouse 12 is pleased to present Bay Area musicians Lisa Mezzacappa and John Finkbeiner and New York City-based vocalist Fay Victor in a special trio performance. This collaborative group made its debut in fall 2012 with a series of performances on the west coast. The trio performs original music by Mezzacappa and Victor in addition to improvisatory arrangements of music of popular music.

Mezzacappa "demonstrates an admirable balance of grit and whimsy" (Time Out New York) and "one of the most imaginative figures on the Bay Area creative jazz scene" (Rich Sheinen, San Jose Mercury News). "The musical vision she creates is entirely her own . . . authentic and highly enjoyable from beginning to end" (Stef Gijssels).

Lisa Mezzacappa is a San Francisco Bay Area-based bassist and composer. An active collaborator and curator in the Bay Area music community, she leads her own groups Bait & Switch and Nightshade, and co-leads the ensembles duo B., Cylinder, the Permanent Wave Ensemble, the Mezzacappa-Phillips Duo, and the Caribbean folk band Les Gwan Jupons. Lisa has released her own recordings on the Clean Feed, NoBusiness, Leo, Evander, Odd Shaped Case and Edgetone record labels, and has recorded as a sideperson for the Tzadik, Kadima, and Porto Franco labels. She collaborates frequently on cross-disciplinary projects in sound installation, film/video, sculpture and public music/art.
