Ben Kaplan on his intriguing new project (and his Dark Room gig this weekend)

By way of introduction, artist and musician Benjamin Kaplan shot us a line about an intriguing gig coming up at the Dark Room this weekend, featuring a handful of St. Louis’ finest session players:

“I wanted to tip you off to a new project I am in the midst of called ‘Hasty Drinks the Tiger’s Heart.’ It’s a free jazz collaboration between myself and multi-instrumentalist Rick Deja, he on sax, flute, and melodica, me on electronics. Our debut release is entitled La suprématie de l’amour, is an homage to and remix of A Love Supreme.
