Tisziji Munoz, featuring Paul Shaffer on Piano/Synth with Lew Soloff on Trumpet, Don Pate on Bass, Bob 'Ra-Kalam' Moses and Tony 'Sadu-bahv' Falco on percussion.

Following his departure from military service in 1969, Tisziji pursued his interests in Canada, generating his own musical ideas as well as taking a leading role in the development of Toronto’s underground music scene. As a guitarist in the musicals Hair and Godspell, he met and inspired the now world-famous keyboard player, Paul Shaffer, who became Tisziji’s primary accompanist from 1970 to 1972.

As Paul recalls: “Tisziji’s music was of a unique, other-worldly nature… although I didn’t understand it, I was galvanized. He began to instruct me in how to accompany and play this type of music. Thus began a musical and spiritual friendship which continues to this day. I apprenticed with Muñoz until I left Toronto for New York in 1974. He taught me first a repertoire of jazz standards, expanding my knowledge of harmony, then gradually freed me to play the modal type of spatial music with which he dealt. He led me and a small group of cats in an exploration of music as a means of spiritual communication with each other and, ultimately, with G-d. I have (since) played with all the great guitar players, from Eric Clapton to Van Halen to Santana to Jeff Beck, and nobody plays guitar the way Tisziji Munoz does. He is very spiritual, and as a guitar player he swings wild.” Tisziji and Paul have collaborated on many levels and have recorded multiple albums together, to include the two records they are celebrating with their performance at The Falcon. Tisziji said “Paul and I are not only an odd couple, but we are a God couple when it comes to music. Our musical relationship is completely intuitive, incomprehensible, yet perfectly workable."
