    Trickster is an all-star band led by NYC-based guitarist and composer Miles Okazaki whose Slovenian appearances include a solo project (playing compositions of Thelonious Monk for solo guitar) and the Mary Halvorson Quartet. His approach to the guitar is described by the New York Times as “utterly contemporary, free from the expectations of what it means to play a guitar in a group setting — not just in jazz, but any kind.” The flight of the Trickster moves across the threshold into the magic world, traverses the sea and sky, visits ancient islands, is tested in a tempest, is abandoned, and returns with stories to tell. The titles and themes of the compositions are borrowed from writings about the sea, an endless source of symbolism involving mystery, creation, and terrible power.
