The Masakowski Family Trio

The New Orleans tradition interpreted by a modernist jazz trio, with Steve Masakowski and his daughter Sasha and son Martin

Dates: 25 – 29.6, 2019

Frank Salis & Michael Watson

Multi-awarded guitarist Steve Masakowski is known as a member and composer for the modern jazz band Astral Project. He has released numerous albums and has performed alongside some of New Orleans’ greatest musicians and with Grammy winners such as Bobby McFerrin, Nicholas Payton, Allen Toussaint and Dianne Reeves, at the world’s most prestigious festivals. Already a favorite in Ascona in 2014 and in 2017, he returns with his daughter Sasha Masakoswski, a rising star on the Crescent City’s music scene, creative interpreter and fearless improviser, and together with his son, Martin Masakowski, talented bassist who ranges from jazz, folk, and classical to experimental music and the sounds of Eastern Europe and India. The three artists, with a more contemporary background, will present a repertoire centered around the New Orleans tradition. A band to be followed with particular interest.
