Kassa Overall – drums Jason Moran – piano As an African-American musician, and more importantly someone who cares about and has a high regard for African-American art forms, I believe the generational divide needs to be removed in order for its timeless wisdom and truth to stand strong, irrevocably and unequivocally." – Kassa Overall Kassa Overall's TIME CAPSULE is a project that aims to expand the limits of time and genre in music. The first six performances in this seven-month series will serve two functions. The first function is the immediate context of the live performance, which showcases a range of innovative pianists who have emerged from various corners of the jazz idiom while exploring the elemental pairing of piano and drums. The second function of these performances is to provide raw material for a final project that weaves together recordings of these performances through sampling, compositional editing, and other performance and production techniques. For the duration of these performances, The Jazz Gallery will become part of the production studio itself; the audience experience will be re-contextualized both as listening to a live performance and observing the production of raw material that is intended to create something entirely new at a later date.
