6:00PM  ANDREA WOLPER QUARTET: THE WEAVING
Andrea Wolper, voice;  John DiMartino, piano;  Ken Filiano, bass;  Michael TA Thompson, soundrhythium
Andrea Wolper Quartet: The Weaving image

An "audacious artist who flouts genre limitations, singing songs for the love of it and delivering an inventive, thrilling, appealing musical vision" (Blogcritics). Singer, songwriter, poet Andrea Wolper's New York credits include Dizzy's, the Blue Note, JVC Jazz Festival, and she tours nationally and internationally. Embracing Cornelia Street Cafe's history as a home for lovers of jazz, cabaret, experimental music, and poetry, this "utterly refreshing" (JazzTimes), "highly original" (Contra Costa Times)" performer weaves together music, texts, and improvisations. With creative veterans John DiMartino, Ken Filiano, and Michael TA Thompson.

She fills torch songs with sensual longing, then makes abstract vocal improvisations feel intimate as meaningful conversation...highly recommended for anyone who believes in the timeless essence of cool. - Graham, Tucson Citizen

Voxecstatic: Kari van der Kloot Quintet image

Canadian vocalist and composer Kari van der Kloot has a unique vocal sound that has been described as “ethereal” and “bell-like”. Her thoughtful compositions and arrangements show an intensely personal commitment to the lyrics and music: every word is felt deeply and honestly, and the music is intricate while leaving room for each band member to express themselves. Kari has performed throughout the United States, Canada and South Korea.

Kari's debut album “Seedling” was released in the fall of 2016.

‘Inhale a peaceful breeze, then exhale the love calm’

This is a sentence out of one of the lyrics Hiske Oosterwijk wrote to Alex Spipiagin’s music. It’s her vision towards singing. ‘I breathe in and every note and sound comes with love’. When she sings she wants to touch the audience, inspire them, entertain them. 
Hiske brings her quartet to Cornelia Street for a set of arrangements on jazz standards and original compositions.

Hiske Oosterwijk (1989) is a jazz vocalist, born and raised in Friesland, NL. She’s been working for several years with Alex Sipiagin in the New Path Quintet with whom she toured a lot around the world and released 2 albums, the third is on its way. Hiske also released her own album ‘Embraser Vivre Aimer’ in September 2016 with the band EVA with whom she won the 2017 Concours de la Chanson.

‘I’ve experienced a driven, very motivated and hardworking musician. Always eager to learn and grow to a higher musical level.’ – Alex Sipiagin

‘Hiske is voice-technically very strong and this appears in her performance and repertoire, where you can see a flexible and versatile vocalist.’ – Leeuwarder Courant
