Maurice Tani Returns to Berkeley's Freight & Salvage

Article Contributed by Tanya Pinkerton | Published on Friday, April 8, 2016

Maurice Tani marks the release of his seventh album, “The White Water”, a collection of six new originals and four reimagined selections from other writers as diverse as Robert Hunter & Jerry Garcia and Burt Bachrach & Hal David. Maurice’s May 13th performance at Freight & Salvage will be primarily acoustic, featuring material from his previous six albums and debuting new material from this latest release. The evening begins with Tani and bassist Mike Anderson and as the evening progresses, they will be joined at various points by English songstress Pam Brandon, jazz pianist Randy Craig, and Ken Owen on the drums. 

Tani's shows at Freight & Salvage are always engaging performances featuring his smart blend of alternately dark, humorous and romantic, story-driven songwriting, his haunting, intimate vocal style and a band capable of following him down the many divergent paths he takes. The roots are in country, rock and folk, but his taste is very broad, so expect a variety of unexpected spices and clever twists throughout.
