Black Top is the duo of multi-instrumentalist Orphy Robinson and pianist Pat Thomas, who create dynamic and purely improvised collaborations. The two are joined at the Jazz Café, by special guest Thurston Moore.
A key member of the cult art punk band Sonic Youth, Thurston Moore has remained at the forefront leftfield music, exploring new sounds and ideas with each new project.
Collaborating with artists like DJ Spooky, Dinosaur Jr., Yoko Ono, and even joining the black metal group Twilight, Moore has truly cemented his place on the musical fringe in recent years. Highly revered for his offhand improvisations, Moore has joined forces with a number of artists for some unforgettable live performances.
Black Top, a project between himself and British jazz composer Cleveland Watkiss, will see the pair travelling to the edges of the genre and creating some wild new sounds. This will undoubtedly be a show to remember.
