No guitarist has traveled a more circuitous creative path than Marc Ribot, a major compositional and improvisational force on the New York jazz scene since the mid-1980s. He returns with a week of solo performances blending standards, originals, free improvisation, and material from across his momentous career.
While often associated with the avant-garde, Ribot thrives in any musical context, contributing prominently to the work of Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, The Lounge Lizards, and Diana Krall, as well as Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’s five-time GRAMMY Award-winning 2007 album Raising Sand.
Applying his unorthodox technique and vast, percussive sonic palette to a mind-boggling array of musical realms, Ribot has delved into the classic compositions of the great Cuban sonero Arsenio Rodríguez with his Los Cubanos Postizos band, explored Albert Ayler’s ecstatic free jazz forays with his power-packed trio, and investigated country music in Nashville with Bill Frisell and Buddy Miller. He has unleashed scorching avant-rock with his trio Ceramic Dog, dug into bone-deep roots rock with Los Lobos guitarist David Hidalgo, conjured the spirits in duo with jazz piano giant McCoy Tyner, and has appeared at SFJAZZ twice with his beguiling solo accompaniment to screenings of Charlie Chaplin’s 1921 classic The Kid.
