Roald Hoffman, Dave Soldier hosts

Tom Baione, AMNH Library Director ;  Barbara Rhodes, expert conservator;  ,
Entertaining Science: On Paper image
Nature on paper and the nature of paper

The American Museum of Natural History is home not only to dioramas and tens of millions of zoological and geologic specimens and anthropologic artifacts, but also to a world class research library containing extraordinary illustrated books.

Indeed, natural history books have long been the way people could learn about the world beyond their own backyard, and the only way scientists in the pre-photographic era could consistently share new information and discoveries.

Tom Baione, the Boeschenstein Director of the AMNH Library, talks about some of the library’s seldom-seen treasures, as highlighted in Natural histories: extraordinary rare book selections from the American Museum of Natural History Library.

Barbara Rhodes, an historian and expert conservator in the AMNH’s Research Library, will discuss the nature of paper, of books, and the varied ways that have evolved to bind them. She will also provide some guidelines as to how people can preserve their personal collections.

Reservations highly recommended. 212 989 9319

Admission $10 + 1 drink

Anna Webber, CD Release: PERCUSSIVE MECHANICS image
Composer and multi-instrumentalist Anna Webber is making a name for herself in the experimental jazz community based in Brooklyn. Already known as an improvising saxophonist and flutist who persistently avoids the expected, Percussive Mechanics, Webber’s new release on Pirouet Records, firmly establishes her as a forward-thinking composer. Percussive Mechanics is a collection of carefully crafted left-of-center compositions which are played with precision and maturity.

"This talented tenor player/flutist boldly deconstructs jazz and other genres and anyone seeking solace in the arms of a theme-solos-theme format need not apply."--Terrell Holmes, All About Jazz

Following her previously acclaimed discs Toward Love and Lifeline, FIG TREE is a wide ranging and ambitious project, backed by a remarkable set of players, that includes acid jazz, spellbinding ballads, songs in Portuguese and Greek, and three originals worthy of becoming new standards.” — Scott Yanow, excerpt Fig Tree liners
