Billy Martin's Drummingbirds
Scrutinizing percussion possibilities is the Medeski, Martin & Wood drummer's passion, and this week's six-night residency (22-27) finds him banging around with various cohorts, including a cagey brass outfit and the Sirius strings. Somehow his collabo with Boston superhero Rakalam Bob Moses (a rare NYC sighting) and Cyro Baptista seems most alluring. Their excursions usually reveal a wealth of rhythm ideas. Hope they bounce through "Laughing Drummers in the Park, On Mars."
July 22-27, 8 & 10 p.m., 2014
