September 9, 8 -10PM • Shikantaza

Skikantaza

The Shikantaza Trio (Doug Miller–piano, Bernhard Geiger–bass, Brandon Lewin–percussion) passionately
explores the jazz canon and songs from “The Great American Songbook,” as well as performing original
compositions developed improvisationally. Their eclectic repertoire draws inspiration not just from jazz and popular music, but also from folk, classical, gospel, rock, and even
country western genres.
The word shikantaza refers to a form of Japanese ZenBuddhist meditation. It literally translates as just sitting. The flow that is Shikantaza’s trademark is punctuated by precise dynamic and rhythmic movements. Its music is saturated with meaning, melody, and haunting harmonies. The ensemble passionately explores the jazz canon, making familiar works uniquely their own, but also offering original compositions developed improvisationally.
