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

Daniel Levy, composer ;  Elizabeth Margid, librettist ;  Jim Bell, planetary scientist
Entertaining Science: Mars ! image
MARS! With its spectacular geographical features, Mars has always attracted the imagination of human beings. Ray Bradbury’s “The Martian Chronicles,” a classic of science fiction, is the inspiration for a music theater adaptation by composer Daniel Levy and librettist Elizabeth Margid. We will preview this musical journey into “a past that’s yet to come” to witness the longing and loneliness inherent in Earth’s conquest of the red planet. Professor Jim Bell, of Arizona State University and Cornell, an active planetary scientist, has been as close to Mars as any human being, through his leading role in the Mars rovers Spirit, Opportunity, and Curiosity missions. He will show us some of the startling and haunting images from his books "Postcards from Mars" and "The Space Book", showcasing the surface of the terrestrial planet not that far away from us.

Thomas Pryor, host

Robin Bady Donna Bailey Pamela Grossman Lianne Smith

The neighborhood’s awake and talented storytellers & musicians are ready to paint characters and scenes for you.

Storyteller/playwright Robin Bady performs and teaches throughout the U.S. and in Europe. Publications include Storytelling Magazine and Storytelling Across the Curriculum. Recognized nationally as the J. J. Renaux Emerging Artist for 2012, she performs in Greenwood Cemetery, the 92nd Street Y, University Settlement. A native of New Jersey, she lives with her Brooklyn-born husband in Kensington, a neighborhood boasting 39 nationalities, families, singles, and feral cats.

Donna Bailey was a professional actor for 25 years. She has performed at the Negro Ensemble Company, the McCarter Theater, Amistad World Theater, Theatre Virginia and Ensemble Studio Theater. She has also appeared in Spike Lees Joes Bed Stuy Barbershop, So Fine, and Street Smart with Morgan Freeman. She has been the voice on dozens of voiceovers for radio and television.

She believes with her whole heart in the importance of community and so is honored to be telling a story on the theme of "neighborhoods."

Lianne Smith's music dispenses with a panoramic shot in favor of zooming in on the bee and flower. She writes grown-up songs about standing in the middle of the road and wondering which way to go, about how others cheat us and how we cheat ourselves, about free-wheeling, bicycle riding, look-ma-no-hands exhilarations, and how it feels to say goodbye to summer. Her latest CD, Two Sides of A River, is a classic.

Voxify: Dominique Eade & Bruce Barth image

An active performer on the Boston scene since the 80's and a New England Conservatory Faculty member since 1984, Dominique Eade is a musician long lauded for her "musicianship and cool intelligence" (Ben Ratliff, The New York Times).

Eade has recorded albums both for Accurate Records and the RCA Victor Label , with recent duo recordings with pianists Jed Wilson (Open) and Ran Blake (Whirlpool). She has performed in a variety of contexts in New York City, including a featured soloist role in two Anthony Braxton operas, duo performances with Gene Bertoncini, and an adventurous trio with Ben Street and Kenny Wollesen. She has performed at venues such as Joe's Pub, Birdland, and Symphony Space with groups including Larry Goldings, John Medeski, Fred Hersch, Kevin Hays, Peter Leitch, James Genus, and Tom Rainey.

Eade's second album, My Resistance is Low (Accurate), featured her frequent collaborator Bruce Barth, with George Mraz and Lewis Nash. It's a great pleasure to have Dominique and Bruce reunite, in a sense, at the Cornelia St Cafe.

"Dominique Eade has long been one of the finest jazz singers in a town full of great ones. (Many of the current generation are her former students.) She's at the top of her game..." — The Boston Phoenix

Nicky Schrire, host

Natalie Cressman, vocals, trombone;  Ivan Rosenberg, trumpet;  Samora Pinderhughes, piano;  Jonathan Stein, bass;  Jake Goldbas, drums
Voxify: Natalie Cressman and Secret Garden image

New York-based trombonist/singer/composer Natalie Cressman has won acclaim for her ability to play fluently in a variety of musical styles, and at 21 years old she’s honed a preternaturally worldly conception of her own. From Carnegie Hall to the House of Blues, from the Apollo to Lincoln Center, her versatility and enthusiasm for new music has propelled her into a richly diverse musical career.

An accomplished improviser who has performed at many venues (Birdland, Joe’s Pub, the Jazz Gallery, Terminal 5, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Drom, Le Poisson Rouge, Sullivan Hall) as a sideman with groups including Nicholas Payton’s TSO and Peter Apfelbaum’s NY Hieroglyphics Ensemble, the San Francisco native has gained her widest exposure through three years of touring with Phish’s Trey Anastasio. “Cressman's vocal agility is furthermore on display in the difficult leaps and intervals of several compositions, her tone clear and true and unadorned...highly attentive solos, carefully crafted arrangements and spirited performances...With the release of Unfolding, her phone should be ringing off the hook.” - All About Jazz

“On this debut, she shows why she deserves wider recognition. Her tone is spot on, and her improvisations are smart beyond her years. Backed by a young and equally talented band, Cressman displays a knowledge of chordal music not usually associated with such young players.” - Jazz Society of Oregon

We'll be saluting Eddie Cantor, Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme, the Gershwins (come hear one of theirs you probably have never caught), with dashes of Sondheim, Burt Bacharach, Jerome Kern and a great deal more. Come on down (or up, or over) and join me for another helping of some of my favorite things performed by some of my favorite people -- and stay tuned for our upcoming projects in the fall!

Baisinger will be accompanied by New York musicians Ben Monder (Jack McDuff, Marc Johnson, Lee Konitz, Paul Motian, Kenny Wheeler) on guitar, Pete Rende (Chris Cheek, Bill McHenery, Kurt Rosenwinkle, Dave Douglas, Rebecca Martin) on piano, Matt Brewer (Mark Turner, Jeff “Tain” Watts) on bass and Tommy Crane (Loe Lovano, Mark Turner, Tony Malaby, Shirt) on drums. “With stunningly smoky vocals reminiscent of Paula Cole, the lilt of Joni Mitchell and the lush, jazzy warmth of Norah Jones, Amanda Baisinger enchants her listeners with a combination of elegance, emotion and sophisticated artistry. Her voice slides gently over languid melodies, the resonance filling in all the little pockets of harmony that dances between pop, jazz and folk. Always, there is a beautiful, exquisite haze that fills the air when her music begins."

Ryan Blotnick's Saut-e Sarmad image
Working toward their debut release on Songlines, Ryan Blotnick's Saut-e Sarmad project combines the poetic subtleties of Eliot Cardinaux and Randy Peterson with the rawness of Michael Blake (Lounge Lizards, Ben Allison) and a young rhythm section that developed in 2006 as part of Pete Robbins' group Centric. Riding the cusp between blues and baroque, this group "leaves no child behind" in it's attempts to portray a blossoming inner reality, uniting the audience in rapturous mysticism. A depraved yet scientific exploration of quantum mechanics, led by some of the cities most respected improvisers, directed by the compositional ruse of a disciplined young guitarist.

"Abstract sound is called saut-e sarmad by the Sufis; all space is filled with it ... Those who are able to hear the saut-e sarmad and meditate on it are relieved from all worries, anxieties, fears and diseases; and the soul is freed from captivity in the senses and in the physical body. The soul of the listener becomes all-pervading consciousness; and his spirit becomes the battery which keeps the whole universe in motion."- -Hazrat Inayat Khan

10:00PM  NEW BRAZILIAN PERSPECTIVES: TRIO JOTA SETE
Jason Ennis, 7 string guitar;  Michael O'Brien, bass;  Conor Meehan, drums
Guitarist Jason Ennis is a musician with a unique sound, deep groove and sensitive feel, along with a diverse background in Jazz, Blues, Brazilian and other Latin-American styles and Classical music. His interest in Brazilian music led him to adopt as his primary instrument a uniquely Brazilian Violão de Sete Cordas (7-string classical guitar), a staple of the Choro and Samba tradition. The influence of a wide range of Brazilian music from Choro to Bossa Nova to MPB inform his style and works it way into every aspect of his performance. His "Trio Jota Sete" project, which features drummer Conor Meehan and bassist Michael O'Brien, presents original material, selections from Brazilian composers such as Guinga, Garoto and Edu Lobo, as well as others.
