Jazz scene: NYC drummer/composer Art Lillard this Friday& Saturday at LV's

Friday & Saturday, July 15 & 16
Art Lillard/David Valdez Trio
Looking a little like a jazz version of Bruce Dern, Florida-native, NY-based drummer Art Lillard dispatches beats, pulse, and general bebop élan with an ease and grace that is coolly compelling and utterly musical. Navigating the fulcrum between straight-ahead and avant-garde terrain, Lillard's been an under-the-radar figure for decades, working with an A-list of players, including the late Mark Ledford and Wilber Morris, Perry Robinson, Jaki Byard, Dave Douglas, and the enigmatic Ira Sullivan. For this two-nighter, he's joined by old friend, altoist David Valdez and pianists Tony Pacini (Friday) and Phil Goldberg (Saturday).
