Rabid Rabbit with Dave Rempis, Loto Ball Show, Nate McBride & Ingebrigt Haaker Flaten Recommended Soundboard

When: Fri., Jan. 29, 10 p.m. 2010

Jaco Pastorius all but single-handedly turned the use of the electric bass in jazz into an ugly cliche with his tasteless displays of musical egotism, but in recent years a new generation of improvising bassists has re­habilitated plugged-in low-end excess. Among them are Nate McBride and Ingebrigt Haaker Flaten, who played together in the original lineup of Ken Vandermark's Powerhouse Sound—they laid down jittery, multi­dimensional grooves and occasionally tested the sturdiness of the beat by stepping back and whacking at it with blasts of bone-shaking sound. McBride and Haaker Flaten have performed as an acoustic duo before, but this is their debut as an electric two-piece. They'll play first, followed by Loto Ball Show and then local drone-doom outfit Rabid Rabbit, whose lineup also features two electric bassists—and, for this show, guest saxophonist Dave Rempis, who frequently works with McBride and Haaker Flaten in more jazz-oriented settings. —Bill Meyer
