Burnett Thompson & Alex Blake
Burnett Thompson (Piano) Alex Blake (Bass) The Reformation, Age of Mayhem: Liturgical, Sephardic, Drinking, and Love Songs of the 16th Century arrives at Mezzrow after performances in London, Berlin, Prague and Vienna, with upcoming dates in Paris and Vienna. The CD will be offered to each of the Mezzrow guests on Dec 9. The program is a powerful and irreverent look at mid-16th century history and culture via the music of the time. Medieval and Renaissance melodies are complemented by Burnett's own compositions that reflect the visual arts, historical landmarks, and the stellar personages of that period. Burnett's music is always indebted to the avant-garde, jazz, baroque, classical, romantic, modern eras, as well as Chinese traditional music for ideas, style and energy.
