Throughout CD Release Show at Cornelia St Cafe!

I sincerely hope you can join me tomorrow night to celebrate the release of my first solo piano CD, Throughout: The Music of Bill Frisell. I recorded the music over a year ago and it's finally out this month on the SteepleChase LookOut label. It's been interesting to revisit this material after such a long time away. I'm playing things a lot differently now, and hopefully better, too.

Thursday, March 28th at 10pm
Cornelia St Cafe
$20 cover (includes a drink)

Time Out NY says:

"Progressive-jazz pianist JP Schlegelmilch celebrates Throughout, a warm and elegant new solo effort devoted to the works of guitarist Bill Frisell."

You can hear some clips of the music and read about the concept of the recording here.

If you can't make the show, Throughout is now available on Amazon and ITunes!

Gutai: Splendid Playground

The Guggenheim Museum used an electronic piece I composed in a promo video for a piece called "Water" by Motonaga Sadamasa which is currently installed in the museum's rotunda. I saw it in person last week, it looks amazing!

I'm excited for the 2nd performance tonight of MARS: A Play About Mining, at the Center for Performance Research in Williamsburg! I'm playing keyboards in the space-rock meets hillbilly music live score. All 3 nights are sold out!

From the NY Times listing:

The arts collective Superhero Clubhouse channels its environmentalist energies into a new dance-theater concoction, adapted from Tom Coiner’s graphic novel “MARS!” Choreographed by Adam H. Weinert and directed by Jeremy Pickard, with live music composed by Adam Miller, the work examines the history of Appalachian coal mining through a sci-fi lens, asking, “Must human progress always end in destruction?” — SIOBHAN BURKE
