AVANT-GARDE JAZZ | resAUnanace

It starts with a formidable trio: John Bacon, vibraphone and percussion; Jonathan Golove, electric cello; and Michael McNeill, piano. Add the eerie, wordless vocals of Esin Gündüz, and get ready for some of the most ethereal music you'll ever hear. Gündüz was born in Istanbul, Turkey, and the group performs a few Turkish folk songs, but even those are other-worldly. The musicians are equally fascinating to watch, especial when Bacon starts bowing the bars on his vibraphone. The name "resAUnance" combines the "resonance" of the voice and instrument combination with the "AU," from PAUSA Art House in Buffalo.

resAUnanace performs Tuesday, May 24, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 8:30 p.m. $10-$15. 737-0137; bopshop.com.
