Full Price / $28.50 IMAC Members
On Saturday, November 12th, 2005 at 9PM,
the Inter-Media Art Center (also known as “IMAC”)
in Huntington, Long Island will present a concert with THREE
GUITARS- LARRY CORYELL, BADI ASSAD and JOHN ABERCROMBIE.
What happens when you combine three guitar
masters, each with a lifetime of impressive musical experiences,
and have them play together in the wonderful acoustic setting
of IMAC Theater? You have the ideal set of ingredients for
an eclectic, original masterpiece known as THREE GUITARS-
featuring LARRY CORYELL, BADI ASSAD and JOHN ABERCROMBIE.
Larry Coryell formed The Eleventh House,
one of fusion's most influential groups in the 1970's and
has unleashed his guitar sorcery with everyone from Dizzy
Gillespie and Charles Mingus to Randy Brecker and Chico
Hamilton. As one of the pioneers of modern guitar, he brings
a vibrant modernism to the acoustic setting of the Three
One of the most exciting and innovative
guitar players performing today is Brazil's Badi Assad.
A virtuoso whose technical ability never overshadows the
visceral impact of her playing, Assad, is, quite simply,
a wonder to behold. On this project Badi exhibits her amazing
talents by adding kalimba and copper flute to the mix in
addition to her unique mouth and body percussion techniques.
Blending a creative mix of styles in his
playing, John Abercrombie is regarded as one of the most
influential guitarists of the last 25 years. His style continues
to evolve as he has worked with such musicians as Johnny
Hammond, Charles Lloyd, Billy Cobham and Dave Holland to
name a few.
