As You Will: Shakespearean Improv image

If there’s one problem with the 884,647 words Shakespeare wrote, it’s that they’ve all been performed already. What about The virtually infinite number of words he hasn’t written...yet? The players of As You Will invite you to a show where we will bring to life all the plays and poetry the immortal bard would have written if he hadn’t gone and died. Huzzah!”

Clearing the Mirror: A Disruption of Disorder: POETRY image Christopher Lucka

In a world and mind cluttered with falsity and a distorted collective perception, it is necessary to maintain there is a truth and that one day, we will see ourselves and our own beauty in the midst of this illusion. As the poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz writes:

Perhaps the mirror of the world will clear once again—

perhaps, once again, our gaze will travel to the limits of sight.

The New York–based tenor saxophonist and composer has released two critically acclaimed albums for Sunnyside Records. “Unified” features Roy Hargrove, David Binney and Jeremy Pelt and “Evoke” documents his 2012 working 55 Bar quintet of Mike Moreno, Benito Gonzalez, Corcoran Holt, and McClenty Hunter.

“Stan Killian is reminiscent of Jimmy Heath in that his compositions and tenor saxophone work make each other better. His playing is smart but unpretentious, logical yet unrestrained. That kind of balance is hard to achieve in jazz.”-- Jazz Times

Martin Nevin Quintet image

Martin will explore music from his recently release album, Tenderness is Silent, with a new instrumentation.

"Nevin's goal isn't to overpower or impress the listener, but rather to present a way of experiencing the music that is based on deep intuition and an emotional connection. It's a distinctive approach, particularly for a debut record, and that it works as well as it does here is a reflection of Nevin's promise as a composer and bandleader.” -Troy Dostert (All About Jazz)
