6:00PM  ENTERTAINING SCIENCE
Roald Hoffman, Dave Soldier hosts

Taka Kigawa, pianist;  Brent Stockwell, chemist
NEW FRONTIERS: UNDRUGGABLE PROTEINS AND IMPOSSIBLE PIANO MUSIC

Taka Kigawa, an outstanding virtuoso of the contemporary piano literature, will perform near impossible-to-play music on the piano, as part of his effort to expand the range of the human musical experience.

Brent Stockwell, Professor of Chemistry at Columbia University, will discuss the challenge of discovering new medicines, and how all known drugs interact with just 2% of the proteins found in humans--most of the remaining proteins have been considered "undruggable", or impossible to affect with drugs. He will discuss the efforts of a number of researchers, including his own laboratory, to address this fundamental challenge of creating new molecular architectures that can tame these untapped proteins, and what the dramatic impact on medicine and disease would be if such proteins could be harnessed for drug discovery.

a recent article on Taka Kigawa in the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/26/arts/music/26taka.html

10:00PM  NATHANIEL SMITH QUARTET
Nathaniel Smith, drums, composition;  Jake Saslow , saxophones;  Sam Minaie, bass;  Toru Dodo, piano
Nathaniel Smith Quartet image
Nathaniel Smith joins the growing roster of drummers releasing records as composers and leaders with "Quartet", his debut offering on Fresh Sound New Talent. Happy to inhabit a niche between those who see themselves as defenders of the music "as it was" and those conspicuously seeking to redefine it, Smith, like many of his peers, uses the vocabulary of jazz as a vehicle for his ideas, culled whimsically from everything from Miles Davis to Radiohead. Smith's drumming is at once open and angular, exhibiting vocabulary from the bebop, ECM, and gospel traditions. For this outing Smith is joined by tenorman Jake Saslow, graduate of the Thelonious Monk Institute and member of Michael Buble's band, bassist Sam Minaie, member of Tigran Hamasyan's groundbreaking Aratta Rebirth group, and Toru Dodo, economics graduate, witty iconoclast, and veteran of the bands of Kenny Garret, Benny Golson,Curtis Fuller, and Wayne Escoffrey.

"The songs on the Nathaniel Smith Quartet’s debut album are cosmopolitan and often warmly evocative – and they’re songs in the purest sense of the word. Smith’s hooks and tunes are memorable, if not always head-on – there’s plenty of implied melody, and as you would expect from a drummer, he’s got a great feel for the spaces between." -Lucid Culture

I am also an artist, currently represented by Meredith Ward Fine Art. I had my first solo show with her in 2007 and am putting together my next. I majored in film theory/production at Hunter College and graduated magna cum laude. From there I studied acting for three years at William Esper, and when I realized I did not want to be an actor worked at The Fifi Oscard Agency as an assistant to Carmen LaVia. Then began writing, after I realized I did not want to be an agent. I have been writing and making art ever since—Although, I am now considering medical school.

SHELLEY STENHOUSE: was a finalist in the 2009 National Poetry Series; won a NYFA Fellowship; Allen Ginsberg Award; Pavement Saw Award for PANTS; two Pushcart Prize nominations. “AIDS” has been quoted in Poet’s Market.

8:30PM  "THE FAMILY TREE" PRESENTS...JOSH MEASE
Alan Hampton, host

Josh Mease, originally from Houston, Texas, lives in Brooklyn, where he can often be found exploring the abandoned corners of the city, finding peaceful solace in cemeteries, empty swimming pools, and abandoned waterfronts. His debut LP, Wilderness, is the result of these wanderings.   Each song evokes a scene from an imaginary world. The album takes us from the front porch summer swing sing-along Days Like This to the day-glo world of White Diamonds and ends with the ambient and beautifully strange Tall Trees. Mease also shows a talent for love songs. I See You, a duet featuring Jess Martins (Via Audio), is a lovely campfire stargazer about finding your other half – and “Eleanor” evokes silent movie imagery from the past. The topics of each song are diverse, but the theme remains that world of Mease’s mind where the music and listener are safe from the daily hustle.

Opening for Josh Mease will be Alan Hampton, performing solo bass. Hampton studied composition and performance, and toured and performed with jazz luminaries Terence Blanchard, Herbie Hancock, and Wayne Shorter, at the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz in Southern California. After completing the program, he moved to Brooklyn where he made his mark as a bassist and sideman, performing around the world and recording with the likes of Gretchen Parlato, Sufjan Stevens, Clare and the Reasons, Robert Glasper, and Elizabeth and the Catapult. Since the arrival of “The Moving Sidewalk,” and his leap from sideman to solo artist, Hampton has gained notoriety as a singer and a songwriter, and has appeared on records by singer Gretchen Parlato, and bassist Derrick Hodge, who is known for his work with Common, Mos Def, and Maxwell.

The concert will feature innovative and highly varied compositions by Trapchak and guitarist Tom Chang.

"Equally accessible and stimulating. Replete with infectious melodies, risk-taking compositions, and cohesive variety" - Mark F. Turner, All About Jazz

"A modernized, unconventional type of jazz that's derivative of most everything and a duplication of nothing.”- S. Victor Aaron, Something Else! Reviews
