Back in January I raved about a performance of free improvisation I'd been to by a trio of musicians including the percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani (though someone listening only to a tape of the performance would have been hard pressed to tell that Nakatani was a percussionist, so varied and un-percussionlike were the sounds he produced from his drum set). This Friday, June 3, Nakatani will be back in Champaign-Urbana, playing together with trombonist Jamie Hutchinson and table-top guitarist John Ridenour. The show will be at Civitas, located at 112 W. Main, Urbana, and begin at 8 PM; donations will be requested, according to the fliers. (Civitas is an inconspicuous little storefront just west of Priceless Books, and under the same awning.) I will definitely be there.

Nakatani will also be playing in Columbus, OH tomorrow (June 2) and Bloomington, IN, Chicago and Detroit over the next week or so, with different musicians; see his website for more info.
