Trimtab (10 p.m.)
Trimtab is the brainchild of guitarist Jason Goessl and explores the link between R. Buckminster Fuller’s architecture and musical form and meter. This link gave birth to music that reaches a further sonic space not generally thought of in jazz, classical, or pop harmony. Goessl takes the idea of the dymaxion house, car, and map, and expresses it in musical form by melding classical, jazz, Eastern, African, and rock concepts into a style all his own. With Phil Cali (bass) and Brian Oppel (drums).
