6:00PM  NEW AIRES TANGO

New Aires Tango image

The unique collaboration of tango singer Malena Dayen and pianist/arranger David Rosenmeyer invites us to delve into each song as a whole world within itself.

The repertoire that New Aires Tango performs is drawn mainly from the golden age of tango singers and writers. Yet music from other styles such as folkloric Argentinean, Mexican and Cuban songs are presented under the same umbrella to reflect on the lineage and influence of the Tango tradition.

"Tom Rainey is a player that swerves between avant-garde notions and a mainstream sensibility, when he plays, the smell of invention is in the air." --Josef Woodard, Los Angeles Times.

Conversation with Bill Evans, Elene Dee, Andy Laverne image
Two specialists of Bill Evans’ Music will revisit Bill's most daring pieces, as well as some of their own compositions. Elene Dee uses her voice as a musician vocalizing the original notes of Bill Evans. Along with Andy LaVerne they create a musical dialogue.

Andy is the recipient of five Jazz Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, winner of the John Lennon Songwriting contest for his tune “ Shania" and the ISC for his tune "Peace of Mind". He is a prolific recording artist with over 60 CD’s as leader, and many more as sideman. “...Intelligent Design lives up to its name as one of LaVerne’s best efforts thus far and one of the finest jazz releases of the year.” (C. Andrew Hovan - All About Jazz)

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
