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.

Stan Killian, tenor sax;  tba, piano;  tba, bass;  Shareef Teher, drums

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

9:30PM  JONATHAN SARAGA TRIO
Jonathan Saraga, trumpet;  James Robbins , bass;  Dan Nadeau , drums

“Engaging, tuneful, urgent modern jazz played at a very high level by young, masterful musicians," is how Grammy-nominated saxophonist Jimmy Greene describes the music of Jonathan Saraga's ensemble. Their 2017 Fresh Sound-New Talent album "Journey to a New World,” which earned 4-star reviews in Jazz Journal, Jazzwise, Sea of Tranquility, and All About Jazz, feature compositions that have received the Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer Award, as well as 4 semi-finalist nominations and one finalist nomination in the International Songwriting Competition.

“His chops, lust for musical life and don't-box-me-into-a-stylistic-corner mentality make him seem like the musical offspring of trumpeters Dave Douglas and Ambrose Akinmusire.” -All About Jazz   http://jonathansaraga.com

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)

Flutist Hadar Noiberg and seven string guitarist Cesar Garabini come together in an exciting new duo to present original works and new arrangements of the greatest Brazilian choro and samba composers and tunes.
