6:00PM  ENTERTAINING SCIENCE -- FERNS
Roald Hoffmann

Entertaining Science -- FERNS image
FERNS
Companions to dinosaurs and Victorians, edible and poisonous, resurrecting, close to the earth and arboreal, unfurling, sexy, and mysterious --- ferns are very special, very ancient plants. Robbin Moran of the New York Botanical Garden, a world expert and author of "The Natural History of Ferns" will tell us of these plants. Oliver Sacks will read from his "Oaxaca Journal" about a recent fern society expedition; poet Liz Socolow will read some poems about ferns. And Reuben Radding on contrabass and Karen Waltuch on viola will play! It may be that the plants themselves will make a rare cafe appearance.

8:30PM  AMRAM & CO
AMRAM & CO image
This series explores in his highly personable, generous and informal style the astonishing variety of David Amram's interests and accomplishments--renowned composer of symphonic classical music, jazz compositions, improvisation, spoken word, scat, he sits at the piano, schmoozes about music, about the greats, the beats, the obscure, the legendary; plays the French horn, pulls out all kinds of instruments (flutes, drums, horns) gathered from his many circumnavigations of the globe, pulls in guests drawn from just about every artistic walk of life.

Arturo O'Farrill y Riza Negra - Explorations in Latin Jazz

Arturo O'Farrill, son of the legendary Cuban composer/bandleader Chico O'Farrill and musical director of the Lincoln Center Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra, performs at the Cornelia Street Cafe every second Tuesday of the month.

Arturo is music director of the Lincolin Center Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra, yet he still makes time for his Y Riza Negra performances at Cornelia Street.

One of the highlights of this incredible musical opportunity, for both listeners and younger musicians: Arturo, the consummate teacher, is offering both a student discount rate and the opportunity for jazz students to sit in with his band during the second set.

This performance is a rare opportunity to see this high-energy, exceptionally gifted artist perform with his trio in the intimate setting of The Cornelia Street Cafe's 60-seat downstairs lounge.

RAINEY TRIO

Tony Malaby, saxophone;  Angelica Sanchez, piano;  Tom Rainey, drums
MALABY/SANCHEZ/<br>RAINEY TRIO image
The husband and wife team have been playing with their drummer pal Tom Rainey for years now; their bedrock rapport doesnít vanish for an instant when theyíre truly hitting it. That gives their well-conceived abstractions an inner balance that often eludes others. Sax, piano, percussion - quite a concept.
Jim Macnie/Village Voice NYC

This is a particularly articulate small ensemble in a time where subtle ensemble articulation is a lost art to many musicians. The trio subtly balances between the overt and the introvert. Intuitive ensemble-play moments find their space, without ever loosing sight of precise process and motion within
