Thiefs is a mix of jazz, hip-hop, electronica, and spoken word that is “transcending the concept of idiom altogether (JazzTimes). If you ask Thiefs co-leader Keith Witty, this is the essence of 21st century jazz.
A group molded by collaboration, social reflection, and a highly skilled core trio of players, Thiefs is Christophe Panzani (sax, electronics), Keith Witty (bass, electronics), and David Frazier Jr. (acoustic & electric drums).
The transatlantic trio from Paris and New York released Graft last year, an album hailed for its “startling mash of natural and synthetic, resonant and fractured.” (New York Times) An evocative odyssey, its subject matter is so pertinent in this political moment: identity, dislocation, migration and otherness.
Expect local artist collaborations to be announced for this not-to-miss, one-show event.
