Marc Ribot Celebrates New Album Tomorrow at The Bowery BallroomJuly 27th, 2016
From rock to free jazz to fusion to soundtracks to avant-garde to Cuban music, eclectic, genre-hopping guitarist Marc Ribot has been a vital cog in New York City’s downtown music scene for decades—performing and recording with the likes of Wilson Pickett, Elvis Costello, Elton John, the Black Keys and Tom Waits just to name a few (it’s a really long list) along the way. And even when recording his own albums, Ribot doesn’t go it alone. He performs “the mind-blowing harmolodic punk-funk of Ornette Coleman’s first Prime Time band and the sweet, optimistic pulse of 1970s Philly Soul” alongside Jamaaladeen Tacuma (bass), G. Calvin Weston (drums) and Mary Halvorson (guitar) as the Young Philadelphians. Their newest album, The Young Philadelphians Live in Tokyo, comes out on Friday, and Marc Ribot & the Young Philadelphians celebrate its release tomorrow night at The Bowery Ballroom. A pair of Brooklyn musicians—singer-songwriter Inyang Bassey and soul-and-funk man (and Dap-King) Binky Griptite—open the show.
