AMRAM & CO:
Readings from Amram's two books "Offbeat: Collaborating With Kerouac" and "Vibrations", performances with his trio of classics of jazz and World Music and special guests to be announced.

This series explores in his highly personable, generous and informal style the astonishing variety of David Amram's interests and accomplishments--renowned composer of symphonic classical music, jazz compositions, improvisation, spoken word, scat, he sits at the piano, schmoozes about music, about the greats, the beats, the obscure, the legendary; plays the French horn, pulls out all kinds of instruments (flutes, drums, horns) gathered from his many circumnavigations of the globe, pulls in guests drawn from just about every artistic walk of life.

8:30PM  THOMSON KNEELAND AND KAKALLA CD RELEASE PARTY
Thomson Kneeland, bass;  David Smith, trumpet;  Nate Radley, guitar;  Take Toriyama, drums

Cd release for The Seeds of Analog Rebellion

Kakalla is dedicated to the fusion of jazz improvisation with Balkan folk music, chamber music, rock, the avant-garde, electronic and other influences. The group has performed concerts, clubs, and festivals throughout the eastern US, and their third CD, The Seeds of Analog Rebellion, was released in Nov 2004 and debuted at #1 on the WNUR jazz charts Chicago and #3 on CJSR. Kakalla is on the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s New England Touring Roster, has received grants from the Worcester Cultural Commission and other Massachusetts cultural councils, and is on the soundtrack for Magdalena’s Brain (2004).
Musically, the group performs all original material, with a view to combining intricate composition with the freedom of individual and collective improvisation. The ensemble’s goal is not to authenticate or reproduce a musical tradition, but to interpret and fuse seemingly disparate traditions into a single “folk” music: the Kakalla, a music intensely personal and indicative of the members’ life experiences.   http://www.kakalla.com http://www.thomsonkneeland.com

THE FRINGE celebrates their newest CD Live at ZeitGeist with special guest Joe Lovano

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.
