Andrew Bird
Todd Sickafoose to premiere 'Bear Proof' at the Blue Whale

An in-demand bassist who studied under Charlie Haden and has performed with a rich roster of talents that includes Ani DiFranco, Andrew Bird, Nels Cline and Scott Amendola, Todd Sickafoose's knotted and lovely 2008 album, "Tiny Resistors," was one of the top jazz releases of that year. Finally at the cusp of delivering an encore, Sickafoose reunites an all-star band that includes violinist Jenny Scheinman, clarinetist Ben Goldberg and drummer Allison Miller to premiere a piece dubbed "Bear Proof," a work commissioned by Chamber Music America. The Blue Whale, 123 Astronaut E S Onizuka St., Suite 301, L.A. Sat., 9 p.m. $15 http://www.bluewhalemusic.com.
