6:00PM  ENTERTAINING SCIENCE -- NEON!
Roald Hoffmann, host


NEON! Something about intense, clear, colored light delights the eye and mind. Light artists Kenny Greenberg and Clare Brew, teaming up with dancer and choreographer Rachel Cohen, will create synaesthestic light fantasies for us. Roald Hoffmann will lapse into his professorial mode, and do a show-and-tell on emission, absorption, and line spectra, while Oliver Sacks recounts the remarkable history of the noble gases.

CD RELEASE PARTY
MILK AND WASTE

Miki Hirose, trumpet;  Jordan Perlson, drums;  Apostolos Sideris, double bass;  Catherine Bent, cello;  Andy Guthrie, voice, piano, guitar, composition
<br>Andy Guthrie <br>CD Release Party <br><font color=red>Milk and Waste</font> image
Andy Guthrie releases tonight his third and most ambitious album Milk and Waste. An unheard mix of British pop, American folk and jazz, this album has just been selected to be featured on NPR’s staple songwriters program All Songs Considered.

Singer, writer, composer, pianist, and guitarist, Andy Guthrie will lead a band featuring musicians Miki Hirose, Jordan Perlson, Apostolos Sideris, and Catherine Bent, performing songs from the new album, along with older compositions and new experiments.

Often compared to Tom Waits, Nick Drake or Tim Buckley, Guthrie’s music is at the same time passionate and controlled, sincere and sophisticated, vibrant and cynical. By melting his incomparable voice with cello, trumpet, organ, guitar, piano, and bass, by combining genres and moods, Andy Guthrie has created a unique atmosphere and sound, a world of his own.

"Farewell to 2005" David Amram Trio (David Amram w. Kevin Twigg on drums and John DeWitt on bass), actor John Ventimiglia of The Sopranos, Alana, Adira and Adam Amram plus surprise guests and readings from the works of Kerouac and Amram with musical accompanyment.

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.

Lee Briccetti
book launch for DAY MARK from Four Way Books. "Lee Briccetti's poems have humor, wit, and quickness of empathy and imagination....between two cities, New York and Rome, [she] leads us wisely into our Western night," says Jean Valentine. Cornelius Eady said: "Along comes this surprising first book, vivid, bittersweet, [and] perfectly balanced between art and heart."

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 currently on tour w/ the Lincolin Center Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra throughout the United States and recently had a premiere performance in Shanghai, China, yet he is still making 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 sextet in the intimate setting of The Cornelia Street Cafe's 60-seat downstairs lounge.

8:30PM  BEN WALTZER GROUP
Ben Waltzer, piano
Ben Waltzer group image
“This no-nonsense jazz pianist in the Ellington and Monk vein (who has occasionally written for Arts & Leisure) gets a big, ringing sound out of the extreme registers of the instrument; he also takes a decisive stand against the ultra-sensitive, lush-harmony tendency of so many young jazz composers. "One Hundred Dreams Ago" (Fresh Sound), with a trio including the bassist Matt Penman and the drummer Gerald Cleaver, is by far the best thing he's done, but he hasn't been making records for very long.”
--Ben Ratliff, NYTimes, 7.18.04

“Brilliantly performed…very impressive.”
- Ahmad Jamal, jazz piano legend, of ‘100 Dreams Ago.’

"In the era of concept records, this startling young pianist has flipped the script: the message behind One Hundred Dreams Ago is ‘let's just play.’ Accordingly the trio gets its bustle on. Ellington's small groups are in the air here, and the pleasure Waltzer generates is bountiful.”
- Jim Macnie, the Village Voice
