6:00PM  ENTERTAINING SCIENCE -- WAVE/PARTICLE
Roald Hoffmann


WAVE/PARTICLE

What is light? Is its nature that of a wave or a particle?

This question occupied Newton and Einstein, and remains an important dichotomy (or is it?) until this day. In a jam session on the nature of light, the "Illuminate Me" collective of light artists Kenny Greenberg and Clare Brew, choreographer Rachel Cohen and her dancers, composer Chris Becker and chemist Roald Hoffmann, will play with light, sound, dance and physics.

PIANO TRIOS: Shimrit Shoshan  image
Shimrit Shoshan was born in Israel and has been playing music since she was 8 years old. At 10 years old, Shimrit began developing her skill for the endless colors and textures of the piano. This eventually leads to her placement in Israel ’s most prestigious Performing Arts High School to nurture her budding creativity and musical genius. By the age of 18, she began receiving awards and recognition as a gifted and talented pianist and composer. To expand upon her promising musical career, Shimrit relocated to New York-USA where she received numerous scholarships to study at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. It was there that she met and began to study with jazz legends Charles Toliver, Kenny Barron Eric Reed, Benny Powell and Charlie Persip just to mention a few. While in New York for only 6 years, Shimrit has had the privilege of performing at a number of high profile venues with some of New York’s hottest upcoming jazz artists such as; Nasheet Wait, John Hebert, Eric McPherson and Ben Street, in addition to performing most recently with legendary jazz drummer, Charlie Persip at the Fat Cat in New York, NY.

8:30PM  FRANK AND ROBIN'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE
Robin Hirsch Frank London
FRANK AND ROBIN'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE image
For fifteen years or so Frank London, trumpeter, composer, bandleader, and founding member of the world famous Klezmatics, and Robin Hirsch, writer, performer, director, and founding member of the world famous Cornelia Street Cafe, have flirted with the notion of a collaboration.

In 1997 Robin was invited to perform in Berlin as part of a festival of Jewish Culture. Frank had paved the way. By one of those eerie coincidences to which Jews in general, and Robin in particular, are prone, the director of the festival, Andreas Nechama, had asked Frank whether he could arrange for him to use the Cornelia Street Cafe to conduct his American interviews. Needless to say, he could and he did. And needless to say Robin wrote about his Berlin experience in a story called Pleasant Dreams. Here is an extract:

One day in 1996 I get a call from Frank London of the Klezmatics. It is one of the ironies of post-Holocaust Europe that klezmer music, the music of the East European shtetl, is really hot in Germany. Many of the American klezmer musicians I know make the bulk of their money in Germany. So Frank has more connections in Berlin than I do. He calls me up to say that Nechama is coming to New York to scout talent for his festival, and that he would like to use my cafe to conduct interviews.

And so it comes about that Dr. Andreas Nechama, a studious, conservatively dressed man, a little younger than I, but with an ineradicable air of middle age about him, the son, like me, of Berlin Jews, sits at a corner table by the window in the side room at the Cornelia Street Cafe in Greenwich Village and for two days entertains a procession of mostly Jewish filmmakers, writers, Yiddishists, musicians, jugglers, visual artists. Karen Kramer, on her way to the film festival in Minsk, drops off a print of her film, Days of Awe. Frank drops by on the afternoon of the first day and, during a break, he and Nechama and I taste some wines that are under consideration for the wine list. Frank has a new band called Hasidic New Wave, which pushes the frontiers of his continuing experiment with the traditions of Jewish music to another level, and Nechama is interested in bringing them to Berlin. We chat a trois. Very relaxed, very informal, very unlike what I imagine Germany, and German Jewry, to be. Nechama knows of my background and of my book, Last Dance at the Hotel Kempinski, and I give him a copy, which he insists on paying for. Is cash alright? Cash is fine. And the tax? Don't worry about tax. But what about the authorities? Don't worry about the authorities.

He retires to his table and begins to read. When I join him, he asks whether I would like to come to Berlin to deliver a lecture and perhaps to perform. He has read the prefatory "Note on the German" and he gets it immediately. The Judische Gemeindehaus, the Jewish Community Center, where he has his office, is built on the ruins of the old Fasanenstrasse synagogue, where my mother's family used to worship. It is directly opposite the Kempinski. He gazes at it every day. How can I not go?

What befalls Robin when he goes? Will Frank set some of his experiences to music? What extraordinary musicians will he bring with him? As of this writing nobody knows. On Monday, hopefully we will find out.

ROBIN HIRSCH is the award-winning author of the memoir Last Dance at the Hotel Kempinski which Jewish Book News called "one of the best books ever written on the long arm of the Holocaust" and of the solo performance cycle Mosaic: Fragments of a Jewish Life, which the Village Voice called "completely glorious." He has for thirty-one years been the Minister of Culture and Wine Czar of the Cornelia Street Cafe.

FRANK LONDON was described by All About Jazz as "the mystical high priest of New Wave Avant-Klez Jazz". He is a founding member of the Grammy Award winning Klezmatics, the composer of dozens of scores for theater and film, the recipient of numerous awards for his contributions to music; he has a dozen albums of his own and is featured as a trumpeter on hundreds of recordings by musicians as diverse as LL Cool J, Mel Torme, LaMonte Young, David Byrne, They Might Be Giants, and Lester Bowie.

8:30PM  THE LATE 20TH CENTURY QUARTET
Joe Giardullo, reeds;  Frank Kimbrough, piano;  Jay Anderson, bass;  Harvey Sorgen, drums
The Late 20th Century Quartet image
This group came together last year to play a diverse cross-section of jazz that bloomed in the last half of the last century. They all live in “Sowo” ( south of Woodstock) and they came together to blow in the mountains near home.

The music can range from Bley to Braxton, Brubeck to Ornette, Miles to Motian, Sun Ra to Turrentine, and that’s what is fun about this band.

They’ve worked with just about everyone in the music, from Tom Waits to Carmen McCrae, Paul Bley to Hot Tuna, Milford Graves to Maria Schneider Orchestra, Michael Brecker to Bruce Hornsby.

And it can all come out on any tune, at any time.

Big fun!

Regarded by fellow jazz singers as “a dynamic improviser who interprets a lyric with sincerity and a beautiful sense of style,” Deadra Hart’s unique, crystal-clear voice breathes new life into music. This New York City –based vocalist has lived and performed all over the world, from Los Angeles to the Midwest and from Amsterdam to Ecuador. Deadra is an active performer, leading a jazz quartet that mixes traditional jazz elements with gorgeous, original melodies. Her debut album, Wherever I Go has already sold hundreds of copies and can be heard on jazz radio stations as far away as Indonesia and Australia. Deadra has recently been exploring her newfound passion for the songs of South America with her Latin jazz trio, Ligaçao. She has been praised by critics and musicians alike as “a woman who sings with sophistication” (Cincinnati Post) and “a superb musician with exquisite taste” (Paris Rutherford – Vocal Jazz Arranger).

Maryanne de Prophetis graduated from Temple University College of Music where she studied piano and harmony with Natalie Hinderas. During that time she also began jazz vocal and theory studies with bassist Al Stauffer. After three years of travel and study in Italy, she arrived in New York to continue musical studies with Warne Marsh, and more recently studied with jazz vocalist Jay Clayton. Her trio with Frank Kimbrough and Ron Horton was formed in 2002 and has been playing in the New York area since then. She has also been appearing with her more recently formed quartet, adding bassist Dean Johnson to the core trio.

Maryanne has also recently led a vocal group, Vocal Dissolve, featuring original compositions, improvisation and poetry. In addition to musical performances she has also been presented in several poetry readings. Her poetry has appeared in the Hartford Courant, Osiris, and she received the Editor's Choice Ward for Outstanding Achievement in Poetry by the International Library of Poetry.

Her debut trio CD, A Glance, is released on LoNote Records, and features all original compositions.
