Seeing Steve Noble and Assif Tsahar vie with each other in a duo is sure to be a fiery and riveting experience.
Assif Tsahar is a saxophonist and bass clarinettist who was for a long time based in New York, where he became an integral part of the city's improvised music scene, including co-founding and producing the Vision festival and running the Hopscotch Records label. As well as being part of the trio Digital Primitives with Cooper-Moore and Chad Taylor, Assif has played as part of Cecil Taylor's Orchestra, Butch Morris' Conduction, William Parker's Little Huey Orchestra and with Hamid Drake, William Parker, Susie Ibarra, Rashied Ali, Warren Smith, Wilbur Morris, Le Quan Ninh, John Tcikai, Fred Anderson, Rob Brown, Roy Campbell, Gerald Cleaver, Agusti Fernandez, Ken Vandermark and Kent Kessler.
"One of the great new talents in New York" (Time Out New York)
"Few young jazz players generate the kind of buzz among New York cognoscenti that tenor saxophonist Assif Tsahar has over the past couple of years. ...through shifts in register and tonal quality, Tsahar has a knack for creating the illusion that he is playing more than one instrument- This is some of the least dense and frenetic free jazz to come out of New York, and some of the most emotionally affecting. " (Jazziz)
Steve Noble is a crucial figure in the UK's improvised music scene, aiming high from the outset with his involvement with Derek Bailey's Company, Lol Coxhill and more. Since then he's pleasured us all with his very individual free percussive style in collaborations with Stephen O'Malley, Peter Brotzmann, Keiji Haino, Ikue Mori, John Edwards and everyone in between. He was also part of an amazing one-off trio at our TUSK Festival with Michael Morley and Gary Smith in 2012.
GREEDYADAM are an Israeli trio who describe their music as Psychedelic-Cantorial-Bash. This multi talented power-trio perform music that reaches back to eccentric out-of-the-synagogue-cellar Cantorial pieces melding them with noise and lysergic musicality. In the words of the trio's Noam Inbar, "Greedy Adam, more than being a band is a greenhouse for musical-performative projects. Initially we were thinking of a project entitled "Psychomisticism!" which melds hard-core Synagogue Cantorial music with Psychedelia."
