“It’s not your skill level, it’s how much you communicate,” cellist Erik Friedlander suggests. “It’s how much you express that the audience really wants to hear. They come to hear you be real.” Friedlander, however, is clearly not a musician lacking for chops. The years of training and gigging he did to establish himself in New York City’s avantgarde jazz scenes, through his distinct approach to cello, has taken him all over the genre map by collaborative efforts with artists like Laurie Anderson, Mike Patton, The Mountain Goats, and extensive duties in John Zorn’s Masada groups. Recently he has focused on his own soloist and composer work, releasing a series of albums on ECM. In these works Friedlander displays an underlying sonic curiosity and ability to aurally convey deep emotional experience that shapes the ongoing evolution of his work. In his most most recent group project, Black Phoebe Trio, Friedlander brings together the talents of emerging talents Shoko Nagai (piano, accordion, electronics) and Satoshi Takeishi, (percussion).
