Bar LunÀtico is thrilled to have world-class drummer Allison Miller join our tight-knit musical family. This evening she will play with her trio featuring Carmen Staaf on piano & Matt Penman on bass, Carmen, Matt, and Allison come together to present a night of original music composed by Carmen and Allison. They just finished recording their debut album which is set to be released at the end of the year. Expect melody-driven, modern compositions rooted firmly in the jazz tradition.
Allison Miller has been the rhythmic force behind such mainstream artists as Ani DiFranco, Natalie Merchant, Brandi Carlile, Toshi Reagon, Joey Arias, the Meredith Vieira Show, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Pino Daniele, Erin McKeown, Jill Sobule, and Martha Redbone; and her jazz skills have been embraced by everyone from organ legend Dr. Lonnie Smith and vocalist Patricia Barber to avant-garde trailblazer Marty Ehrlich, Steven Bernstein, Ben Allison, Steve Cardenas, and Ben Goldberg.
Check the video below. That's Allison with another group of hers, Boom-Tic-Boom:
