A night dedicated to Alec Haavik’s original music from his early NYC and Shanghai days. Including music developed during his famous “Friction” bands which performed every Thursday at JZ Club from 2006 - 2012. Some of these tunes, such as The 42 Bus, Cold Rainy Night and Cruise Control, are so familiar to have already become classics. Others from the “Classic Haavik” repertoire are more well-known to the true Friction devotees, such as the operatic fusion opus Step Into the Red Ball (…and You Will Expand!), as well as the complex 35-beat meter tour de force The Mind is A Time Machine. Haavik is delighted to have a chance to bring together two of the original Friction musicians, Lawrence Ku and Fred Grenade, as well as the most recent Friction artist, Yu Guo Jun.
