6:00PM  ENTERTAINING SCIENCE: WHAT MISTINGUETT AND MARIE CURIE TALKED ABOUT
Roald Hoffman, Dave Solider, hosts

Pierre Adumeau, chemist;  Meg Reichardt, vocals, guitar, banjo, ukulele;  Kurt Hoffman, vocals, banjo, ukulele;  Ray Parker, upright bass
Entertaining Science: WHAT MISTINGUETT AND MARIE CURIE TALKED ABOUT image

It’s hard to believe that they did not meet each other, so tonight we have decided to recreate that encounter for you, With an American twist, north of Houston St.. Leading off is a young French chemist, Pierre Adumeau, who has been working on cancer imaging. In France, he crafted luminescent silica nanoparticles, a new tool for the detection of prostate cancer, before crossing the Atlantic Ocean 9 months ago to switch to PET imaging. No, that’s not your puppy, but positron emission tomography, an important diagnostic technique; Pierre is designing new radioactive probes aiming to reduce the radiation dose patients receive.

Back at the music-hall where the singer and the scientist meet: Les Chauds Lapins specialize in French songs about love and lust from the 20s, 30s and 40s, songs associated with such luminaries as Chevalier, Mistinguett and Charles Trenet. In these songs, love and lust are sought, found, and lost, sometimes all at once, or in different combinations. Their repertoire emphasizes the songs that reflect the mingling of American early jazz and swing styles with the whimsical, sometimes surreal lyrical tendencies of the French music hall, which they will also briefly discuss. Les Chauds Lapins will feature Meg Reichardt (vocals, guitar, banjo ukulele), Kurt Hoffman (vocals, banjo ukulele) and Ray Parker (upright bass).

Andy Milne, Dapp Theory image

The music of pianist/composer Andy Milne intersects lyrical jazz piano, funkified polyrhythmic exploration, and spoken word poeticism. One of the most important and respected voices in jazz today, Milne embraces his band mates enthusiasms for Appalachian folk, traditional Armenian, heavy metal, funk, hip-hop, jazz, pop, and classical music. Dapp Theory combines the talents of poet John Moon, saxophonist Aaron Kruziki, bassist Chris Tordini and drummer Kenny Grohowski, helping to re-draw and extend the boundaries of jazz. Their 2014 release “Forward in All Directions”, was produced by Grammy award winner Jimmy Haslip and features guest performances from Ben Monder, Jean Baylor and Gretchen Parlato.

"...an album that brims with both emphatic and implied elements. Forward, yes, but never simply forward in a neat, linear fashion.."--Jazziz Magazine

Sam Sadigursky: Follow the Stick, CD release party image

Sam Sadigursky brings his latest group back to Cornelia St. to celebrate the release of his new album, Follow the Stick, on BJU Records. Original compositions, played originally, by four of NYC's most in demand players.

The stick in question is a clarinet, by means of some outmoded slang, and the person wielding it here will be Sam Sadigursky, whose recent albums have been gracefully high-minded explorations of poetic form. Here Mr. Sadigursky pays a more straightforward homage to the clarinet’s legacy in 1930s and ’40s small-group jazz.-- NY Times

Audrey Silver Sings Jazz and French Songs image

Audrey Silver has been passionate about jazz for over 30 years. Each time she performs, she brings to the stage her love for the music and a hope that she can help her audience experience the same beauty, fascination, and delight in the music that she does.

Starting as a straight-ahead jazz singer, Audrey now sings a number of original works and some elegant French songs.

According to Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes.com, Audrey’s “…voice is like pure sterling. Her phrasing is exquisite, her clarity and enunciation on par with the great Jo Stafford and her breath control—a talent so often, and so wrongfully, overlooked—rivals Sinatra’s…”

RAFAL SARNECKI SEXTET image

New York based guitarist and composer Rafal Sarnecki will perform compositions from his latest album "Cat's Dream" which has been released recently by the Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records. His sextet features some of the most in-demand musicians on the NYC jazz scene.

"The Polish jazz guitarist Rafal Sarnecki casts a wide net. It's possible to hear minimalist classical, Latin dance, and folk—both American and Eastern European—in his music. Its foundation, however, is one of sturdy, smart, thoroughly contemporary jazz. Sarnecki is a composer, with a skillful touch at dramatic tension and pacing within his involved but highly melodic tunes" - Washington City Paper
