The Michael Musillami Trio + 3 augments guitarist/composer Michael Musillami's longstanding core trio, featuring bassist Joe Fonda and drummer George Schuller, with trumpeter Ralph Alessi, multi-instrumentalist Marty Ehrlich and vibraphonist Matt Moran. The group, which performs all new original music specifically written and arranged by Musillami for this all-star sextet, is touring in May in support of its debut release on Playscape Recordings.

The Michael Musillami Trio will lead a FREE workshop co-sponsored by Firehouse 12 and Neighborhood Music School.

The workshop, FEEDING CREATIVITY, will take place from 3:30p-4:30p at NMS on the day of the concert.

The trio will deconstruct one of their pieces and apply some tools to enhance a musician's creative reach. The trio will explore:
-Rhythm variations & tempo changes within the context of a composition
-Intervallic textures
-Expansion of motifs
-Changing a musician's role within the group
-Removing bar lines
-Having fun playing and creating music stress free

All ages and instruments are welcome. Intermediate/Advanced musicians interested in opening up their creative side either improvising or composing music will find the most value in attending.

Listen to music from Michael’s new album, FROM SEEDS here.
