GNU VOX : Frank Carlberg Quintet with Christine Correa  image
On Thursday, January 26th Frank Carlberg Quartet With Christine Correa will be performing at Cornelia Street Cafe. For the past 10 years pianist/ composer Carlberg and vocalist Correa have been exploring 20th century poetry by writers such as Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Robert Creeley, Anselm Hollo etc and setting some of it to music. Their latest CD, "In The Land Of Art" on Fresh Sound, was well received in the press. In the pages of All About Jazz, Elliot Simon wrote:
"..... with its on-the-mark musical, vocal and piano interpretations, adventurous rhythm section explorations and expressive sax playing, Carlberg has shown that s*it can flow uphill In The Land Of Art".

For this performance the group, which also includes Bill McHenry on tenor sax, John Hebert on bass and Mark Ferber on drums, will also perform new music from their upcoming release "Red Piano" also on Fresh Sound.

This season of Gnu Vox, the jazz vocal series, concentrates on emerging vocalists.  The programs will showcase the singers unique abilities as interpreters, improvisers, composers and arrangers from traditional to avant-garde jazz.  The Cornelia Street Cafe provides an intimate setting in which to hear these artists at a reasonable price!

"New York drummer Pete Zimmer, an engaging mainstream modernist, leads a like-minded qintet featuring a big book of swinging originals, most of them by Zimmer.

The Fringe  image
THE FRINGE IS BACK!

The Fringe are one of the genuine living treasures of the Boston jazz scene. Originally formed back in 1971 by tenor-saxophonist George Garzone, bassist Richard Appleman, and drummer Bob Gullotti as an outlet for their free jazz improvisations, The Fringe have entertained and enlightened Boston area jazz audiences for over 30 years. Bassist Appleman left the band in 1985 to become Chairman of the Bass Department at Berklee College and was replaced by veteran bassist John Lockwood.

Along with their impressive tenure with The Fringe, Gullotti, Garzone, and Lockwood are in great demand as session players and have played with many of the greats of contemporary jazz. Along with keeping up with a busy performance schedule, each of them are well-respected educators helping to inspire the jazz musicians of tomorrow.

Our glorious curators are present, you can buttonhole them to find out what's cooking, you can introduce yourself to other toilers in the vineyard, invent projects and discover collaborators. All are welcome.

This promises to be another great night of music and the stellar ensemble will once again bring the bassist’s original compositions to life. Their collective musical credentials reads like a “Who’s Who of Jazz.”

He has had the opportunity to work with jazz luminaries such as Ed Thigpen, John Scofield, Nick Brignola, Mickey Roker, Bruce Barth, Warren Bernhardt, Ray Barretto, Bertha Hope, and George Garzone. Proficient, creative, clearly an in demand bassist, Carlo DeRosa is earning a reputation of very high standards.

Mark Shim was an integral part of bands led by jazz legends Betty Carter and Elvin Jones. At the same time he is comfortable exploring the contemporary and modern jazz concepts of Michele Rosewoman and the “New Directions” band with Greg Osby, Stefon Harris and Jason Moran.

Luis Perdomo has displayed his talents as a regular member of groups led by John Benítez, Miguel Zenón, Ray Barretto and Ravi Coltrane. His work with artists such as John Patitucci, Claudia Acuna, Dave Samuels and Butch Morris adds to a list that is notable through its quality and diversity.

Derrek Phillips currently plays with the Charlie Hunter Trio. Having worked regularly with a diverse group of artists including: Ronny Jordan, Greg Osby, Michele Rosewoman, Liberty Ellman, Jason Moran, Sam Newsome and Vijay Iyer among others, he has carved out an exciting musical career.
