6:00PM  ENTERTAINING SCIENCE -- COSI SIMILI, COSI DIVERSE
Roald Hoffmann

COSI SIMILI, COSI DIVERSE

The tension of things being the same and not the same is in the soul of science and art. Roald Hoffmann will tell four chemical short stories of molecular identity: presumed, feigned, healing, lethal.

In what seems - only that -- to be another world, soprano saxophonist Joe Giardullo and percussionist Todd Capp explore the creative core of independence and unity.

8:30PM  BURTON GREENE TRIO
George Schuller, drums;  Ed Schuller, bass;  Burton Greene, piano;  special guest Russ Nolan, soprano and tenor saxophone
Burton Greene Trio image Arjen Veldt
This is a new group, although the players know each other and have been friends for years. The idea of the piano trio is to present jazz which emcompasses a wide history of the jazz piano literature. We play “inside”, “outside”, “up and down”, for that matter.. The group members have vast experiences in all kinds of jazz forms.. from the 1940’s and ‘50’s until the present avant improvised music. Along the way there are ethnic quotes from Balkan and other native folk sources, and a distinct feeling for the classics as well. Come down and hears us.. You’ll be surprised!

Burton Greene has been on the jazz scene since 1962 first in New York, and then in Europe since the early 70’s. He’s one of the creators of the “NYC downtown n sound”. His early 60’s group the Freeform Improvisation Ensemble with Alan Silva was a trail blazer for the free improv groups that followed. Burton was an original member of the Jazz Composers Guild in 1964. Since that time he has over 40 recordings of his music in a wide range of contexts, solo to large ensemble, acoustic and electronic musics. Burton spends a lot of time in New York these days, matriculating from his home on a houseboat in Amsterdam. Reviewer Derek Taylor in a recent issue of All About Jazz writes "Burton Greene ranks as one of the seasoned survivors in creative improvised music. Like a handful of his ESP (Records) peers he's still at it after all these years, plugging away at his craft and creating chameleonic music along the way... Greene sounds great as well, foraging over the finely tuned ivories with a self-assurance and acuity ideally suited to the auspicious surroundings."

"Like Burton Greene last quartet disc for CIMP, 'Isms Out', this one is one of the year's most remarkable offerings." —
– Cadence

"...this session succeeds in whetting the appetite for its forthcoming siblings and shows Greene a musical synergist still imbued with something important to say."
– Bagatellen

Dominique Eade's new CD, Open, was chosen as one of the top ten CDs of 2006 by Ken Dryden of the Jazz Journalists Association, and All About Jazz calls it "...an exquisite set, start-to-finish." Eade will be performing some of the repertoire from her new CD, as well as some new compositions and unusual covers, with some of her favorite collaborators, including guitarist Brad Shepik and bassist Ben Street.

Rachel Caswell is an award-winning jazz vocalist with a unique style combining extraordinary scatting ability and sensitive song interpretation. She has performed with The Glenn Miller Orchestra, John Blake, Jr., Ingrid Jensen, the Billy Taylor Trio and Curtis Fuller and was selected as one of two vocalists for the 1997 Thelonious Monk Institute Jazz Colony at Jazz Aspen/ Snowmass. In addition to her solo work, she co-leads the Caswell Sisters Quintet with her sister, jazz violinist, Sara Caswell, and frequently performs in duo with bassist, Jeremy Allen, a duo that was selected to perform at the 2006 International Association for Jazz Education’s Annual Conference in New York.

8:30PM  PETE ZIMMER QUINTET
Joel Frahm, saxophone;  Ryan Kisor, trumpet;  Toru Dodo, piano;  David Wong, bass;  Pete Zimmer, drums
Pete Zimmer Quintet  image
Judgment marks the third album by drummer Pete Zimmer and his quintet. This album, along with their two previous releases, distinguishes the Pete Zimmer Quintet as one of the premier upcoming straight ahead jazz groups of the early 21st century. Since the release of their debut CD, Common Man, in September of 2004, which was called an “impressive debut” by the Philadelphia Daily News, they have been captivating audiences with their hard swing and moving melodies as they keep busy performing at some of the most prestigious jazz venues along the East Coast and Midwest. Zimmer’s second album, Burnin’ Live at the Jazz Standard, was recorded live at Manhattan’s Jazz Standard on February 7, 2006. All Music Guide has recently stated that they could be “the best kept secret in straight ahead jazz circa 2006.”

"Judgment is packed with memorable pieces, including a pair of edgy, show-stopping duo numbers, with Garzone and Zimmer sparring like they'd been doing so forever…"Cut Off" is a Jazz Messenger-style tune featuring engaging turns by Frahm, trumpeter Michael Rodriguez, Dodo and Zimmer that leaves listeners wanting more."

Chris Lightcap group image
Having released 2 critically acclaimed releases with his two-tenor quartet, bassist and composer Chris Lightcap brings another configuration of new music to Cornelia Street Cafe. Lightcap has been featured in the bands of Craig Taborn, Joe Morris, Mark Turner and Regina Carter, and tonight he will lead a band featuring his longtime collaborators Tony Malaby, Chris Cheek ,Gerald Cleaver as well as Craig Taborn on piano.

"One of the bright lights of New York's younger players, the bassist has been fashioning a group sound around a pair of tenor saxophonists for years. His writing can be simultaneously demonstrative and reflective, an accomplishment that gives his music emotional breadth."
-Jim Macnie, Village Voice

"A bassist-bandleader who's made some excellent records with two tenor saxophones out front."
- Ben Ratliff, New York Times

"Bassist Chris Lightcap has worked alongside avant-minded mavericks such as Cecil Taylor, Anthony Braxton, and Joe Morris, but he's also right at home in more mellifluous units led by Regina Carter and Craig Taborn. perhaps that explains the infectious swagger and fat grooves he brings to bear on Bigmouth (Fresh Sound New Talent), a playful bag of tunes featuring saxists Tony Malaby and Bill McHenry and drummer Gerald Cleaver"

9:00PM & 10:30PM  JOHN HOLLENBECK'S CLAUDIA QUINTET
John Hollenbeck, composition/drums/percussion;  John Hebert, bass;  Ted Reichman, accordion;  Chris Speed, clarinet/tenor sax;  Matt Moran, vibraphone
John Hollenbeck's Claudia Quintet image
The Claudia Quintet is one of the most innovative and promising groups to emerge in recent years from 'downtown' NY's new alt jazz scene. The group has released 3 CDs, “The Claudia Quintet” in 2002 followed by “I, Claudia” in 2004 and “Semi-Formal” which was released in October 2006. They have toured extensively, receiving widespread praise and generating a buzz among both jazz and post rock audiences in the US, Europe, Australia and beyond. Simultaneously accessible and intriguing, the Claudia Quintet's music can perhaps best be described as post jazz: combining propulsive grooves, sophisticated compositions and near telepathic improvisation. Their releases have received critical acclaim, including four stars from DownBeat magazine, “Best of 2002" by Jazztimes and a “CHOC” from Jazzman. In 2006, Claudia will tour in Canada, the US (Northeast Coast, Mid-West and West Coast), and Europe (Denmark and Portugal).

“Innovative jazz does not have to be harsh, angry, loud, shrill, or grating; it can be delicate, witty, ethereal, and radiantly lyric, as the Claudia Quintet pointed out...”
[Chicago Tribune]

“...a band with the hippest groove in music today.”
Mark Corroto, allaboutjazz.com

“The Claudia Quintet creates a fresh, distinctive sound while it obliterates barriers between jazz, classical and progressive rock.”
-DownBeat

6:00PM  BEAT NIGHT NYC
Larry Simon, host


BEAT NIGHT NYC Featured READERS- Thaddeus Rutkowski, Michelle Brochu, Alice B. Talkless, Hawley Hussey and Frank Simone.

Accompanied by- The Larry Simon Ensemble-Larry Simon-Guitar/music director, Nate Edgar-Bass, Mike Barron - Percussion, and Special Guest: Patrick Grant-keyboard

Last scheduled NYC "BEAT NIGHT" performance : Sadly, due to the logistics of performers coming from NH, the series will be suspended after this show. Beat Night NYC had its premier performance at The Cornelia St Cafe in January 2004. Since the start our shows have been a smashing success, filling the room. Beat Night is a series that began 8 years ago in Portsmouth, NH by NYC guitarist and composer Larry Simon. The event is an hour long evening of spoken word and live music. Each performance features up to five readers, accompanied by The Larry Simon Ensemble (plus guests). Beat Night NYC is scheduled to occur four times a year, one per season.

Beat Night is a play on words implying both the musical meaning of ³beat² and the obvious reference to The Beats, a modern inspiration for the music/spoken word collaboration. The aesthetic of Beat Night is wide open to all styles.

Guitarist/Composer Larry Simon has worked with many of today¹s leading jazz, blues and experimental artists including: John Zorn, LaMonte Young, David Sanborn, Big Jay McNeely, Lester Bowie, Rosco Gordon, George Coleman, Julius Hemphill, the Skatellites, David Amram and many others.

8:30PM  KIM BOCK QUARTET CD RELEASE

Kim Bock Quartet CD RELEASE image
Kim Bock Quartet is celebrating their new SteepleChase release: Secrets. Come down and catch them before they take off for a Denmark/Sweden tour the following week. They will be playing tunes from the new CD as well as new material.

From All About Jazz - Tom Greenland review:
"A chordless quartet, the group manifests cohesive rapport, creative tension and rapprochement, all of a piece. Bock’s compositions are ideal jump-off points for group flight, with subtle counterpoint lines and pointillistic exchanges, containing just enough harmonic scaffolding to keep the painters from falling, yet allowing ample room for creative brushstrokes. "
