May 17. Over the span of his many years in jazz, Woodstock drummer Tani Tabbal has explored and excelled in the realms of avant-garde, traditional, and world jazz.

This Bearsville Theater gig celebrates the release of Mixed Motion, his third album under his own name, and will feature that disc's trio of Tabbal, bassist Michael Bisio, and saxophonist Adam Siegel.
