Entertaining Science: ONE NOTE AT A TIME? IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE LIKE THAT!   image

We live in a veritable sea of assumptions. They help us frame our ideas about reality – but they can blinker us, too. Flutist Robert Dick is known worldwide for his revolutionary musical visions. He’s utterly dispensed with preconceptions of what the flute should sound like and what music can be played on it. Improviser, composer, author, teacher and inventor, Dick’s solo flute performances have been likened to the experience of hearing a full orchestra. Social therapist Dr. Rafael Mendez leads groups towards transcending self-limiting assumptions. Together, they will share ideas and strategies on breaking free from assumptions and creating pathways to new discoveries and development, both in music and in life.

The Collective he is part of in Brazil (Coletivo Chama) had a review in the NY Times written by Jon Pareles entitled "Taking Brazil's rhythms and stretching them out" where their work is seen as the next step for Brazilian music. In his words: "They brandished advanced ways to construct, dismantle and sometimes disrupt a piece".

Our series returns with GET OUTTA TOWN. Let’s face it: musical theatre is more than a little obsessed with New York. But it’s a big world out there, and we all need to get out of the city sometimes. Come travel with us to everywhere but here by way of musicals, opera, and more!

Featuring work by Will Aronson and Julianne Wick Davis, Kevin Cummines and Tony Asaro, Edison Hong and Tim Parker, Timothy Huang, Kento Iwasaki and Cris Ryan, and Michael Pemberton.

Elected ‘RISING STAR’ by DOWNBEAT Magazine, in 2012, He has performed and recorded with the 'cream of the crop' of Brazilian artists, such as Rosa Passos, João Donato, Luciana Souza and César Camargo Mariano, while also making his mark internationally by collaborating with Dianne Reeves, Bob Mintzer, Chris Potter, Eddie Gomez, Claudio Roditi, Brad Mehldau and Esperanza Spalding.

8:30PM  ANALYTICAL SYMMETRY
Jonathan Finlayson, trumpet;  Michaël Attias, alto sax;  Aruán Ortiz, piano;  Nasheet Waits, drums
Analytical Symmetry image

Analytical Symmetry is part of the Music and Architecture Series created by Aruán Ortiz in 2012. This series connects elements found in music such as improvisation, symbols, and music notation, with modern and ancient architecture. Inspired by Ianni Xenakis's book, Music & Architecture Series, explores concepts unusual to jazz, and translates them--through different ensembles integrated by some of the most forward-thinking musicians on the musical scene--into different patterns and forms from architectural structures into improvisation and a rhythmic-melodic, formal language.

"...the music evoked images of mathematical equations, great architectural works and brought to mind the New York loft scene of the 1970s, where free jazz reigned supreme." -Tomas Peña-

Jerome Sabbagh, sax, comp.;  Ben Monder, guitar;  Joe Martin, bass;  Justin Brown, drums
Jerome Sabbagh Quartet - CD Release for

Longevity is a word rarely associated with jazz ensembles these days. An ensemble that has weathered the obstacles and remained a cohesive unit should be celebrated. Saxophonist/composer Jerome Sabbagh has led his tremendous quartet for ten years, a rare display of stability in jazz today. Over the years, the band has developed a unique sound, which stems in no small part from the high level of musicianship involved. On his new recording for Sunnyside, “The Turn”, Jerome Sabbagh explores new material and reunites with the band that he first assembled upon arriving on the New York jazz scene, a band that has matured into a fantastically expressive working group.

“Mr. Sabbagh played with untroubled self-assurance, and his songs had a sleek and sturdy appeal. Just as crucially, his colleagues strove for the unexpected, individually and as an ensemble. [...] Mr. Sabbagh avoided direct allusions to the saxophone totems. What he is working toward, simply and effectively, is a sincerely personal vocabulary.”-- Nate Chinen, New York Times

The Guardian UK has called Lucian Ban “A name to watch” and All About Jazz has said that Mat Maneri “has changed the way jazz world listens to violin & viola” while the New York Times has described Tony Malaby as “A fountain of creative and energized improvising”. Bob Stewart is widely considered along Howard Johnson as responsible for bringing “new glory to the tuba” (NY Times) in modern jazz with collaborations with everybody from Gil Evans, Carla Bley to Arthur Blythe and Sonny Rollins. Add to the mix one of the masters of contemporary drumming Billy Mintz . . . . and you will be surely in for a treat surprise.
