Ken Filiano Performs as Part of M&T Concert Series @ Recital Hall, Main Building, Villa Maria College | Buffalo | New York | United States

As part of the M&T Lunchtime Concert Series, Ken Filiano will perform at Villa Maria College on Thursday, October 9 at 11:30am. He will also lead a workshop for Improv Lab music students, later that day at 4:00 p.m.

Filiano is a bass player, composer, improviser, has been performing throughout the world for thirty years, collaborating with leading artists in multiple genres, fusing the rich traditions of the double bass with his own seemingly limitless inventiveness. Ken leads two quartets, Quantum Entanglements, and Baudalino’s Dilemma (Vinny Golia, Warren Smith, Michael TA Thompson), and is a co-leader of The Steve Adams/Ken Filiano Duo and TranceFormation (Connie Crothers, Andrea Wolper.) His extensive discography includes a solo bass CD, “subvenire” (NineWinds), and “Dreams From a Clown Car” (Clean Feed), which presents his compositions for his quartet, Quantum Entanglements (Michael Attias, Tony Malaby, Michael TA Thompson).

For these and numerous other recordings and performances, critics have referred to Filiano as an artist who can play anything and make it work because he puts the music first. Filiano is on the teaching roster at the New School in New York, and has been a guest artist lecturer at School of Visual Arts and Hunter College (New York). He teaches master classes in bass and improvisation, and has a private bass studio in Brooklyn.
