Mark Guiliana has become recognised as one of the world’s leading drummers, admired and in demand across the spectrum from jazz to rock to electronic music for his rhythmic sophistication, creative impulse, and individual sound. He has been in the vanguard of drummers creating a new vernacular on the instrument, blending virtuosity on acoustic drums with artfully deployed electronic beats and processing.
Along with leading his own groups, Mark has appeared on a string of acclaimed recordings with others. The verve and precision of Guiliana’s drumming was a prime mover of Blackstar, David Bowie’s multiple Grammy Award-winning final album, and he has collaborated with artists such as Brad Mehldau, John Scofield, Donny McCaslin and Soundgarden/Pearl Jam drummer-songwriter Matt Cameron.
Tonight he brings music from his most recent release Jersey, with his ever-compelling quartet.
