Avram Fefer & Michael Bisio Duo

Cutting edge Sax/Bass Duo from NYC.  Featuring Avram Fefer-sax, & Michael Bisio-acoustic bass.

Avram Fefer is an American saxophonist, composer, teacher, and bandleader. He has  recorded eleven albums as a leader and many more as a sideman. He has performed in clubs and festivals throughout Europe, Japan, Africa, and the Middle East and plays regularly in New York City.  

Avram enjoys collaborations of all sorts, including with poets, dancers, painters, filmmakers, theater directors, and digital sound designers. He is the creator and sole performer of the Resonant Sculpture Project, an international series of solo musical interactions with the large-scale works of iconic sculptor Richard Serra.

He is actively involved in ensembles comprised of anywhere from two to thirty musicians, playing music that ranges from classic jazz to original and avant-garde composition, free improvisation, conducted orchestral music, and a variety of North and West African music.

Avram also maintains a presence in the world of  jazz fusion, dance, afro-beat, funk, and  hip-hop, including collaborations with DJ's and members of the house music scene. As a bandleader, he is at the helm of two electric groups --- Big Picture Holiday, Rivers on Mars; and several acoustic groups ---the Avram Fefer Trio, the Fefer-Keiper Connection, and the Nuju 4tet.

Michael Bisio, bassist/composer, has eighty five recordings in his discography, twenty four of these are split evenly between leader/co-leader, ten of them document his extraordinary association with modern piano icon Matthew Shipp. Michael has been called a poet, a wonder and one of the most virtuosic and imaginative performers on the double bass.

Nate Chinen in the New York Times writes :
"The physicality of Mr. Bisio's bass playing puts him in touch with numerous predecessors in the avant-garde, but his expressive touch is distinctive;..."

As a composer Michael has been awarded nine grants and an Artist Trust Fellowship

Collaborators include Matthew Shipp, Joe McPhee, Charles Gayle, Connie Crothers, Whit Dickey, Ivo Perelman, Barbara Donald, Newman Taylor Baker, Rob Brown, Sonny Simmons and Sabir Mateen.
