Amina Figarova Sextet
Wednesday, May 09, 2012 9:30 PM EDT
(8:45 PM Doors)
Jazz Standard, New York, NY
As a composer, pianist, bandleader and arranger, Amina Figavora’s stylistic reach extends from the multi–keyboard fusion–oriented funk of Another Me (1998) to the avant–garde experimentation of September Suite (2005), her powerful and poignant response to the 9/11 attacks. This special Jazz Standard engagement celebrates Amina Figarova’s enchanting new CD, Twelve. “Her compositions have a clarity and elegance of craft and light touch that is her own…Solos are interwoven into finely detailed designs including meticulous transitions and deep backgrounds and meaningful recurrences.” (Thomas Conrad, JazzTimes.com)
