Boston-based, Moroccan-dosed dub-jazz collective Club d’Elf celebrate the release of Live At Club Helsinki, an epic double album that expands the band’s mix of avant jazz, electronica, hip hop, psychedelia, dub and Moroccan trance. Featuring John Medeski, the music explores touchstones as disparate as John Cage, Studio One, Gnawa and drum’n’bass. Joining the band for this show are special guests Hassan Hakmoun and Mat Maneri, with the music presented influenced by the traditional Moroccan folk music and microtonal free jazz that each of them brings to the mix.
