Clarinetist Ben Goldberg, guitarist Ila Cantor, and drummer/percussionist Hamir Atwal present an evening of improvisations at the Red Poppy.

Ben Goldberg established himself as one of the most inventive and vibrant clarinetists in jazz and improvised music in 1992 with his group New Klezmer Trio. Through his many bands and compositional projects, Goldberg has been noted for his exploration into polyphony and collective improvising. He was named #1 Rising Star Clarinetist in the Downbeat Critics Poll in both 2011 and 2013.

Guitarist Ila Cantor paved her way through the jazz scene as a composer, songwriter, and creative improviser. She has recorded three albums of original music, performed in several renowned venues, and received grants for merit in composition. Cantor currently resides in the Bay Area, where she collaborates with leading local artists and initiates her own creative projects.

Drummer/percussionist Hamir Atwal, a Berklee College of Music graduate, began playing drums at age ten and started playing professionally at age 18. Atwal founded rock/jazz/improv group Glimpse Trio in 2010, with whom he remains active, playing over 100 shows a year.
