Erik Friedlander

Genre-bending cellist Erik Friedlander wrote most of the music for Nighthawks, his latest release with Bonebridge, during Hurricane Sandy, lit by candlelight. Bonebridge is Friedlander stretching out with three luminaries from the downtown avant-garde scene: guitarist Doug Wamble, a frequent Marsalis collaborator, bassist Trevor Dunn, of Mr. Bungle and Secret Chiefs 3, and drummer Michael Sarin, whose behind-the-beat equanimity has anchored Dave Douglas and Ben Allison. More Vince Giordano than Edward Hopper, Nighthawks blends folk and jazz with a cerebral jam aesthetic; Bela Fleck meets Bela Bartok, replete with the latter's pizzicato snap. You've heard of slap bass--this is slap cello.
