9:30PM  VOXECSTATIC: FAURÉ AT PLAY: CD RELEASE
Deborah Latz, curator

Louise Rogers, voice;  Mark Kross, piano;  with John Loehrke, bass;  Jeff Potter, drums;  and Jamie Baum, flutes, special guest

Vocalist Louise Rogers and pianist Mark Kross offer their jazz interpretations of art songs by French composer Gabriel Fauré. The harmonic complexities, subtleties, and beauty of Fauré’s melodies combined with the romantic lyricism of poets such as Victor Hugo and Paul Verlaine inspired these musical explorations. The results are at once pensive and playful, languid and lively, haunting and heavenly.

“I feel utterly transported into an aqueous Monet or Renoir canvas” -Fred Bouchard, New York City Jazz Record

Matt Marantz, saxophone, ewi;  Luke Marantz, piano;  Rick Rosato, bass;  Adam Arruda, drums
Matt Marantz Quartet, CD Release: Aura image

Matt Marantz is celebrating the release of a new album, Aura, which is coming out the month of September. Marantz's music combines his love of musical styles including classic jazz & bebop, rock, gospel, and electronically enhanced music melded together into a colorful and sophisticated aural mesh. Collaborating with his brother Luke, who posses pianistic skill and innate musical gifts well beyond his age, the two musicians are a matched pair of minds that are a joy to listen to in concert. Bassist Rick Rosato and drummer Tommy Crane both bring a rich sense of time as well as beautifully individualistic sounds on their instruments to the band's rhythm section. Marantz's music is based on memorable melodies and heart-prodding harmonies with a melancholy mystique.

"A gifted young and driven soloist" - The New York Times "A deeply sincere and meditative player" - Downbeat Magazine

9:30PM  MATT PANAYIDES QUARTET
Matt Panayides, guitar, comp.;  Matt Vashlishan, alto sax, soprano sax;  Steve LaSpina, bass;  Alex Ritz, drums
Matt Panayides Quartet image

This evolving quartet led by guitarist Matt Panayides have played together in a variety of musical settings over the past decade, creating a sympathetic and unified intensity when performing. Joined by veteran bassist Steve LaSpina, who played on Panayides’ first album “Tapestries of Song” and the explosive drummer Alex Ritz, this ensemble will bring the audience along for an electrifying and satisfying musical journey. With this stellar assemblage of musicians, Panayides’ quartet will tear into his vast repertoire of tunes rearranging and shaping his music for this unique Cornelia Street performance. Including selections from his 2015 release “Conduits”, Panayides will also be unveiling some new material.

“Pushed to the edges of creativity this is music that is alive and dances like there is no tomorrow. An astonishing guitarist and composer and a very fine ensemble.” -Grady Harp

Jerome Sabbagh, saxophones;  Simon Jermyn, bass, effects;  Allison Miller, drums, effects
Sabbagh, Jermyn, Miller, CD Release: Lean image

Lean is the debut recording - and de facto band name - for a trio of tenor saxophonist Jerome Sabbagh, electric bassist Simon Jermyn and drummer Allison Miller, who combine their formidable talents in a bristling set of original music. We hear their subtlety and breadth of them as players as well as distinct composers. Whether spontaneously creating, or drawing on and reinterpreting works from their own catalogues, Sabbagh, Jermyn and Miller arrive at a depth and beauty as a unit that defies easy categorization.

Written and performed by Jennifer Rawlings

I Only Smoke In War Zones image

Award winning performer Jennifer Rawlings is not your typical mother of five. She is a comedienne who has been traveling to war zones for over a decade to entertain the troops.

This “must see” solo performance will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotion from the moment the show begins.

Jennifer will lead you on an extraordinary journey of laughter and tears as she weaves together unforgettable stories about family, war and humanity.

I love Jennifer's show because it's a sad yet funny, ugly yet beautiful story about humanity and inhumanity! - Colin Quinn
