    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of March 6–8
    Jimmy Katz

    Pat Metheny, who began a month-long world tour with the band on his recently released album, From This Place—drummer Antonio Sanchez, bassist Linda May Han Oh, and pianist Gwilym Simcock—earlier this week, has brought the music to Australia, where they perform at Palais Theatre in St Kilda tonight and State Theatre in Sydney on Saturday. The tour heads to New Zealand next week and on to Latin America.

    From This Place, just released on Nonesuch Records, debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard Top Album chart—a career best for the guitarist/composer and his first Top 10 album—and at No. 1 on the Current Traditional Jazz Albums chart. “A transcendent album, possibly the maestro’s most impressive opus yet,” exclaims Mojo. “Impressively conceived and impeccably executed,” says Jazzwise, “From This Place is Metheny's finest album to date.”

    Composer John Adams leads the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic and pianist Víkingur Ólafsson in the Dutch premiere of his new piano concerto, Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes?, at Concertgebouw in Amsterdam on Saturday. The all-Adams program also includes the European premiere of his new orchestral work, I Still Dance, as well as a performance of his 1984 piece Harmonielehre.

    Laurie Anderson continues her performances in the 2020 New Zealand Festival of the Arts, of which she is a guest curator, through Saturday. She presents Here Comes the Ocean—a concert of the songs and texts of Anderson and her late husband and collaborator Lou Reed—at Michael Fowler Center in Wellington tonight. She gives her Concert for Dogs, a free event in Odlins Plaza, on Saturday afternoon, followed by a screening of her 2015 film Heart of a Dog, for which Nonesuch released the soundtrack, in the plaza.

    To the Moon, Anderson's virtual-reality collaboration with Hsin-Chien Huang, opened at the Dowse Art Museum, Lower Hutt, as part of the festival on February 15, and runs daily through June 7.

    Olivia Chaney performs music from her latest album, Shelter, and more at St Mary’s Music Hall in London tonight.

    Early James plays The Commonwealth Room in Salt Lake City, Utah, tonight, and The Olympic Venue in Boise, Idaho, on Saturday, as special guest of The Lone Bellow. His debut album, Singing for My Supper, out next week on Easy Eye Sound / Nonesuch Records, is “luminous,” writes Mojo in its four-star review. “When Early James sings for his supper, every Michelin-starred chef in Christendom should plate-up.”

    Rhiannon Giddens and multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, on tour in Australia with music from their new album, there is no Other, perform at Botanic Park in Adelaide on Saturday, for WOMADelaide, followed by a set at Port Fairy Folk Festival in Port Fairy on Sunday.

    Kronos Quartet, in collaboration with composer Danny Clay and chamber ensemble The Living Earth Show, performs Echoes, a multi-media experience of poetry, music, dialogue, and recorded streetscapes, at OCD Theater in San Francisco on Saturday.

    Echoes is directed and curated by Sean San José, and features music set to the original words of poet-performers from Youth Speaks, a San Francisco–based presenter of Spoken Word performance, education, and youth development programs.

    Pianist Brad Mehldau and his Trio—bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jeff Ballard—began a two-week European tour in the Netherlands last night, continuing in France this weekend with concerts at Théâtre Maurice Novarina in Thonon-les-bains tonight and PACI in Issy-les-moulineaux on Saturday.

    ---

    Composer/multi-instrumentalist Jeff Parker & The New Breed—Josh Johnson (saxophone, synth, keyboard), Paul Bryan (bass, synth), and Makaya McCraven (drums, sampler)—perform music from Parker’s new album, Suite for Max Brown, at Jack London Revue in Portland on Saturday and Dorian’s in Chicago on Sunday.

    Suite for Max Brown, released in January on International Anthem and Nonesuch Records, was given a Best New Music review by Pitchfork, which says: “The veteran guitarist has created an effortlessly detailed album, full of tradition and experimentation that spans generations. It lives at the vanguard of new jazz music.”

    Daniel Wohl concludes his tour of the UK as special guest of A Winged Victory for the Sullen with a performance at Ullet Road Unitarian Church in Liverpool tonight.

    Wohl's album État was released last year on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records. NPR Music calls it a “potent dreamscape of clicks, creaks, jagged interruptions, aching melodies and enough new sounds to keep the most tech-obsessed gear heads guessing,” adding that Wohl is “a sorcerer of electroacoustic sonorities.”
