Kitamura/Maguire/Radding Trio:

Kyoko Kitamura - voice
Carl Maguire - piano
Reuben Radding - double bass

Three of New York's most startling composer/improvisors will collaborate to bring the house down
with several premieres, and new experiments in improvised chamber music. Covering an
astonishing range of timbre and temperment, the trio discovered each other in 2002 when all
three participated in a performance and resulting CD by the Laura Andel Orchestra
("Sonambulist," Red Toucan, produced by Elliott Sharp) and have been collaborating in various
formats ever since.

Kyoko Kitamura has spent much time in the U.S., Japan and France, developing a unique style of
vocal improvisation which incorporates the use of electronics and fuses Eastern and Western
influences. She regularly appears in downtown NY venues such as the 55 Bar, the Knitting
Factory, and Cornelia Street Cafe, and has performed with improvisers such as Reggie Workman,
Gerry Hemingway and dancer Maria Mitchell. Most recently, she has recorded with alto
saxophonist Steve Coleman for his next CD.

Carl Maguire, pianist and composer, was awarded a grant by Hunter College
for the performance of MAP: Compositions for Improvisation. Studied
Schenkerian analysis at Mannes, post-tonal theory at CUNY Graduate
Center, improvisation with Roscoe Mitchell, and piano with Ursula
Oppens, Fred Hersch, and Marilyn Crispell. Performs on piano, Rhodes,
and accordion with various creative types. Lovingly leads his
Floriculture quartet, with an upcoming album on Between the Lines.

Reuben Radding, improvising bassist and composer, has lent his creativity to all genres, from
avant-garde to punk, classical to world music, and all points between. Radding emerged in the
early 90's downtown scene working in groups led by Marc Ribot, John Zorn, Elliott Sharp, Dave
Douglas, and led the Sun Ra repertory group, Myth Science. After touring Europe twice, he
spent the late 90's on the West Coast collaborating with Eyvind Kang, Amy Denio, Wayne
Horvitz, the Wally Shoup Trio, and Stuart Dempster among others. Currently residing in
Brooklyn, Radding leads two quartets and frequently performs with international improvisors
like Wolfgang Fuchs, Carlo Actis Dato, Dylan Van der Schyff, Saadet Turkoz, Robert Dick,
Jessica Lurie, and John Hollenbeck. His most recent release is the acclaimed duo
CD “Luminescence" with Daniel Carter on the AUM Fidelity label. Website at

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
