THIRD PERSON (Umezu Kazutoki & Samm Bennett) + Jim O'Rourke, Mito, etc!


Third Person was originally a trio formed in New York City in the late 1980s by 
Samm and cellist Tom Cora. The idea behind the group was that there would be 
an ever-changing third member. They performed many, many concerts in New York, various locales in Europe and, importantly, in Tokyo, where saxophone wizard Umezu Kazutoki became, actually, the full time third member of the band. Tom Cora passed away in 1993, which brought the band to an end... until now. Samm and Umezu-san have decided to rekindle the idea, and will, from here on out, be performing together as Third Person, with an ever-changing third member, as was the original modus operandi of the band.

For this extra-special extravaganza evening at Pit Inn, a star-studded roster of 3P guests will be on hand to join Samm and Umezu in various trios! Shaking and rattling, honking and plucking in all manner of improvisational imbroglios!

Guests members for the night are:
Tsuneo Imahori (guitar)  
Eiko Ishibashi (piano) 
Jim O’Rourke (guitar) 
Mito [from clammbon] (bass)
Tatsuhisa Yamamoto (drums)
