6:00PM  THE SCIENCE OF FEAR IN WORDS AND MUSIC
Joseph LeDoux Daniela Schiller Gerald McCollom
The Science of Fear in Words and MUsic image
Joseph LeDoux and Daniela Schiller study fear at NYU. They will be joined by fellow Amygdaloid, Gerald McCollom, in an experiment in the multimedia communication of neuroscience. A lecture on fear will be interspersed amongst The Amygdaloids' original tunes about mind and brain and mental disorders performed "unplugged" by three quarters of the local science rock band.

LeDoux says, "Music is the most powerful form of communication, and we'll be using it to shoot scientific information straight into the sweet spots of emotion and memory in the brain. We'll definitely have fun trying to do this, and maybe we'll even succeed."

8:30PM  DAN TEPFER/MARK TURNER DUO
Dan Tepfer, piano;  Mark Turner, tenor saxophone
Dan Tepfer/Mark Turner Duo image
This will be the inaugural concert of a new monthly series of duos at Cornelia St Cafe led by pianist Dan Tepfer. The Mark Turner / Dan Tepfer duo is a new collaboration, just a few months old. The visionary saxophonist Mark Turner has played with everyone from Paul Motian to Kurt Rosenwinkle, but is rarely heard in duo contexts; Dan Tepfer has likewise played in wide-ranging contexts, from solo piano to concertos with orchestra. The paired-down environment of the duo offers the chance for a rare, spontaneous musical intimacy; here Turner and Tepfer will explore this terrain through each other's compositions and a selection of jazz standards.

"The tenor saxophonist Mark Turner is possibly jazz's premier player"
-- New York Times

"A sharp young talent, rugged and emphatic... An intently modern pianist who is also drawn to the deeper currents of melody."
-- New York Times

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.

The subsequent recording,also titled arc suite t/pi t/po,will be released by playscape recordings in november to coincide with pavone's 70th birthday and 45th year in music.

Also part of this project are Steven Bernstein and Michael Musillami who, along with Pavone and Ballou, each arranged individual movements within the suite.

...."I have reflected on the 1960's ... a time of incredible change and transformation ... and on being there and taking in not just the musicality of Trane, Cecil, Ornette, Mingus and Monk, but the physical prescence of these giants and the sociopolitical issues their work addressed. I look to re-envision and re-interpret in today's idiom, and in my compositional systems, the feeling,ethos and energy of that time and those players."

Wednesday Jun 09 6:00PM  PLEASURE BOAT STUDIO
Jack Estes, publisher & host

Zaedryn Meade Emily Haines
Jack Estes of Pleasure Boat Studio: A Literary Press presents two promising young poets.

Zaedryn Meade is a queer butch activist, classically trained poet, spoken word performer, and smut writer. Zaedryn holds degrees in both social change and creative writing from the University of Washington, and she studied and taught performance poetry at the Bent Writing Institute for queers. Her book, Fervor: Poems from the East Village, is a celebratory exploration of the rituals of love, loss, and desire in relationships.

Emily Haines is a proud New York City public school teacher. She was born in the Bronx and was politicized by the racial injustices she witnessed in elementary school. Her heroes include her grandmothers, Ella Baker, Assata Shakur, her sister, and her students. Her book,The Right to Live Poetically, is a collection of poems that vacillate between the contradictory emotions of enchantment with and fear of a world beset by international conflicts and incalculable beauty.

8:30PM  MICHAEL BATES'S OUTSIDE SOURCES
Russ Johnson, trumpet;  Quinsin Nachoff, saxophone, clarinet;  Jeff Davis, drums;  Michael Bates, bass
Michael Bates's Outside sources image
"There's something about bassists who lead their own groups and write their own music that strikes a deep chord with me (no pun, intended). Michael Bates's new release is right up there with new releases by Drew Gress and William Parker. The playing by all in the band is passionate and Bates' pulse propels Nachoff, Johnson and Davis through a set of fantastic music. These guys take no prisoners. One of the best releases of 2008! Recommended highly."
-Maurice Hogue "One Man's Jazz" CKUW

"[Bates] serves up melodic modernism and contrapuntal elegance"
- Time Out New York

"Simply put, Bates has the ability to make a huge impact on the existing state of modern jazz!"
- Glenn Astarita, Ejazznews

9:00PM & 10:30PM  TWO MILES A DAY
Jacob Sacks, piano;  Eivind Opsvik, bass;  Mat Manieri, viola, violin;  Paul Motian, drums
Two Miles A Day image
Back in 2005 Jacob Sacks and Eivind Opsvik wrote five songs each and invited Paul Motian and Mat Maneri with them to record 'Two Miles A Day'. Now five years later, these two concerts will be the live debut of this band (with Paul Motian)

Wire (UK) wrote: "Putting viola player Mat Maneri with veteran drummer Paul Motian was a stroke of genius. They share an obsession for pernickety, ornate gesturing and their concept of time transforms pulse into endlessly malleable modules. The foresight to bring the two men together came from New York - based pianist Jacob Sacks and bass player Eivind Opsvik, and the resulting album is a joint release by two labels - an enterprising way for labels to cover costs in the future perhaps? The disc opens with "Ha!", a good-natured composition from which Maneri's microtonal viola locates unexpectedly weighty insides. "Simple Song" has the flow of a nursery rhyme and Maneri, again, flips the tune on to its dark side; a joyful solo from Opsvik restores its intrinsic optimism. Sacks is an impressive pianist - he relishes tossing glassy clusters against the flow, but the harmonic pattern he reciterates on "Evening Kites" reveals his homely and genteel side. An enjoyable record, an important one even"

The Italian American Writers Association (IAWA) celebrates its 19th Anniversary with two prolific authors whose works spark controversy and debate - both having used “dago” in the titles of their widely read publications: Rachel de Vries and Fred Gardaphe.

Rachel Guido deVries' latest poetry collection is The Brother Inside Me, (Guernica, 2008). Her first children's book, Teeny Tiny Tino's Fishing Story, (Bordighera, 2008) won The 2008 Paterson Prize: Books for Young People Award. Other books include her novel, Tender Warriors, and two other collections of poems, How To Sing to a Dago, and Gambler's Daughter. A recent poem, Imperfection, was published in Sojourners magazine, and was awarded first prize in poetry by the Evangelical Press Association, and an honorable mention by the Associated Church Press. She is past recipient of a New York Foundation Artist's Fellowship in fiction. She is a poet-in-the-schools throughout central and upstate New York, and offers workshops for women independently. She lives in Cazenovia, NY.

Fred Gardaphe was born in Chicago and is Distinguished Professor of English and Italian American Studies at Queens College, CUNY. His study, Italian Signs, American Streets: The Evolution of Italian American Narrative, is based on his dissertation which won the Fondazione Giovanni Agnelli/Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs award for 1993 and was published by Duke University Press in 1996; it was named an Outstanding Academic Book for 1996 by Choice. He has also published Dagoes Read: Tradition and the Italian/American Writer and Moustache Pete is Dead!: Italian/American Oral Tradition Preserved in Print, Leaving Little Italy: Essaying Italian American Studies, and From Wiseguys to Wise Men: Masculinities and the Italian American Gangster.

Angelo Verga, host

Oren Neiman , Guitar;  Javier Moreno Sanchez , Bass;  Martin Urbach , Drums;  Plus, some special guests...
The Oren Neiman Group image
The Oren Neiman Group is a band with innovative compositions and imaginative arrangements exploring a combination of Jazz sensibility with Middle Eastern rhythms and melody. Due to Oren’s upbringing in both Israel and Canada it is a natural goal for him to find a balance in his compositions between these two musical worlds.

The result is a unique fusing of a myriad of musical traditions (Balkan, Eastern-European, and Jewish/Klezmer), with daring improvisations and inventive textures, showcasing the groups varied musical backgrounds.

"...What's interesting is how Neiman is able to integrate the traditional folk forms of Jewish klezmer music into a decidedly modern guitar language" All About Jazz.com
