Lisa Mezzacappa Six plays Cosmicomics

Original music inspired by funny, imaginative, gloriously nerdy Cosmicomics stories

Bay Area bassist/composer Lisa Mezzacappa and her sextet perform a suite of original music inspired by Italo Calvino’s funny, imaginative, gloriously nerdy Cosmicomics stories.

Mezzacappa intersperses readings from Calvino’s stories with her inventive compositions, which feature rollicking grooves, layered melodies, and thrilling interaction by the virtuoso improvisers in her band.

The group has recently performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival, Angel City Jazz Festival, and SFJAZZ Center. Come welcome these fantastic and imaginative musicians at their San Rafael debut!
