Zilberella, with Michael Zilber and Susan Muscarella, is a quartet that was co-led by saxophonist Michael Zilber and pianist Susan Muscarella from 2005-7. Zilber, whose latest CD was named one of 2015’s best by Downbeat Magazine, is acknowledged by (among others) NEA Jazz Master David Liebman as “one of the best players and composers around anywhere. Period!”
Muscarella, of course, in addition to being a superb jazz pianist, is the founder and artistic director of the California Jazz Conservatory and the Jazzschool, duties which have precluded her from performing regularly. The two have decided to reunite as Zilberella for this show at The Back Room and see where it leads them. They will be joined by the Bay Area’s top jazz rhythm section of bassist John Shifflett and drummer Jason Lewis.
