Faculty artist Michael Formanek, jazz bass, was featured in a review by Saudades of saxophonist Tim Berne’s Decay ensemble European tour throughout November 10-21. “Formanek, who knows Berne’s MO from decades of work together, made the music rich with texture – each push forward from his strings felt like you were being nudged by a cushion. The end result was alignment.” Decay is comprised of Michael Formanek, bass, Tim Berne, alto saxophone, Ryan Ferreira, guitar, and Ches Smith, drums and percussion. The tour covers Poland, Italy, Vienna, Austria, and Italy. View tour dates and read the full review here.
