6:00PM  ENTERTAINING SCIENCE -- NAMING NATURE
Roald Hoffmann


NAMING NATURE

What's in a name? Robbin Moran, a taxonomist from the New York Botanical Garden, will tell us about the quirky Swedish botanist Carolus Linnaeus (1707-78), founder of modern taxonomy, and his influence on the scientific practice of naming the living world.

Does Linnaeus's creationist method of classification work in a Darwinian world? And will it survive molecular biology? David Wolfe, an ecologist at Cornell, takes up that side of the story -- how Carl Woese established that in a tree of life based on genetic information (as opposed to what things look like), the entire animal and plant "kingdoms" are just tiny twigs, and that most of our planet's genetic diversity and evolutionary history lie within the microbial domains. So is it Woese vs. Linnaeus, molecular vs. classical biology?

Anders Nilsson, an exciting Swedish jazz guitarist, will let us experience evolution in another way on his 11-string instrument - we'll hear how a Swedish folk melody changes over a few hundred years.

8:30PM  MOSTLY OTHER PEOPLE DO THE KILLING/THE QUARTET OF HAPPINESS
Mostly Other People...

Jon Irabagon, saxophone;  Moppa Elliot, bass;  Kevin Shea, drums; 

The Quartet of Happiness
Kelly Roberge, RIck Parker
, saxophones; 
Kendall Eddy, bass;  Austin McMahon, drums

 Mostly Other People Do the Killing/The quartet of happiness image
MOPDTK is a recent group formed in NYC. In this ensemble, I attempt to write compositions that reflect the strange relationship I feel to jazz history. On the one hand, I grew up listening to and still love traditional jazz, but on the other, I am deeply disturbed and disgusted with its current state of turpitude. This music, instead of attempting to reconcile these two simultaneous opinions, pits them against each other creating music that both blatantly mocks and reveres the jazz tradition. Perhaps Dada-Jazz?

The Quartet of Happiness

"A theatrical jazz experience"

Songwriters in the Round image

Jeff Arundel is a singer/songwriter/producer/guitarist. He released his 5th CD, "Ghost Party" in spring 2005; produced a major label recording (Manhattan/EMI) for new artist, Keri Noble, alongside musical legend,world-renowned Arif Mardin (producer of Chaka Khan, Barbara Streisand, Aretha Franklin, Norah Jones...); has toured consistently in the United States, Japan and Hong Kong, performing both his original songs and Keri Noble's songs. He also co-wrote several songs on Keri’s Manhatten/EMI label debut "Fearless. This has not prevented him from writing and recording an album that may finally break him free from being called the 'James Taylor of the nineties'. Jeff seems intent on becoming the 'white Shuggie Otis'. www.jeffarundel.com

Rob Arthur is a singer/songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist. As a keyboardist, the list is far too long to name everyone Rob has worked for, but to name a few: Five For Fighting, Joan Osborne, The Holmes Brothers, Kate Pierson of the B-52s, Will Lee, Keri Noble, etc. Rob's list of production credits is also impressive and as a composer, he has written music for Lifescapes, selling over 2 million copies. This work ranges from "Coctail Party"(inspired by Booker T and the Mg's) to "Timeless Romance"(Edith Piaf-flavored). Rob is also a painter and his work is currently being featured in Fine Art Magazine. Quite the versatile and talented fellow. www.robarthur.com

Keri Noble is a singer/songwriter/pianist extraordinaire. Keri's incredible voice combined with vulnerable and honest songwriting abilities quickly led her to a deal with Manhattan/EMI records in 2003. She made the critically acclaimed Fearless, produced by Jeff Arundel and the legendary Arif Mardin, toured all over the world and landed a song in a Japanese television series. Keri has just finished a stunning new EP. Keri needs no further accolades. She simply rocks. www.kerinoble.com

Ann Klein is a singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer. As a composer/songwriter, she has: toured in Europe consistently for 10 years; written music for three documentaries for French television; written music for THE ENERGY FACTORY (an organization committed to tackling the growing problem of child obesity in the United States.) As a guitarist, Ann has had the honor of playing with Kate Pierson of the B-52s, Joan Osborne, PM Dawn, Toshi Reagon, Keri Noble and Ani DiFranco, among others. She has also produced several artists with her partner, Tim Hatfield, of Cowboy Technical Services. Ann was the recipient of a grant to attend the McDowell Colony in the summer of 2000. However, Ann is most proud of her ability to wah wah her way out of any solo, any time. www.myspace.com/annklein

Obviously, these four are close friends and have done a lot of work together on various projects. They will have a lot of fun on this show, hence, so will you!

Gnu Vox: Patrick de Santos and Jean Rohe image
A native of the Cape Verde Islands, West Africa, Patrick De Santos moved to and was raised in France from the age of 6. He started playing the guitar as a teenager but later chose to dedicate himself to his real love: singing. Mostly a self-taught vocalist, De Santos nevertheless attended a classical conservatory for two years. However, his desire to improvise and use the full range of his voice led him to a more personal and eclectic development and approach to singing. He has traveled extensively and has lived in France, Cuba, Senegal and the United States, gradually perfecting his craft from the sources of Jazz, Samba, Salsa, R&B and Bossa Nova, developing a very distinctive style, great stage presence and the ability to make a strong emotional impact. With a clear, resilient, 3 and½ octave range and fluency in 4 languages (French, Spanish, English and Portuguese) he has turned into something of a cultural cross roads. In the year 2000 and 2001 and 2005 Patrick De Santos won the Washington Area Music Award ( Wammies ) for best vocalist. De Santos weaves his many influences and styles creating a unique sound. His success has led to packed nightclubs and numerous requests for private performances and concerts to benefit causes to which he is committed such as the National Geographic's concert to aid the victims of Hurricane Mitch and the One Song-One Cause concert in support of world hunger and foodfirst.org. His musical expression exploits the endless variety of timbre and nuance and transcends the limitations of any particular style.

Ever since she was a youngster, Jean Rohe has been singing. Now, fresh home after a summer spent in Europe where she won second place and the audience choice award at the international Shure Vocal Competition at Switzerland’s Montreux Jazz Festival, she’s bringing thought-provoking music to the New York scene that makes you want to dance and sing, too. Her multi-lingual musical blend often speaks to the human condition and our responsibility to engage it. “I want my music to be participatory, community-building,” she says. “If people leave feeling better than they did when they came in, I’ve done my job.”

6:00PM  JANET HAMILL
Janet Hamill, poet
Spoken word unplugged with Jay LoRubbio on acoustic guitar and Greg Feller on percussion.

Poet, painter, and performer JANET HAMILL is the author of four books: Lost Ceilings (Telephone Books), Nostalgia of the Infinite (Ocean View Books), The Temple (Telephone Books), and Troublante (Oliphant.).

Janet has been called “our Baudelaire” by no less a poetry presence than Bob Holman. Her poetry travels the road to the marvelous, following the lead of the Surrealists, with their startling juxtapositions and reliance on dream imagery. Likewise, her fiction is concerned with the fantastic - other worlds and unnatural beings - and is inspired by the Magic Realism of South American authors.
