Barbara Aliprantis


Storytelling occurs the second Tuesday of every month.

FEATURED TELLER: Norah Dooley

NORAH DOOLEY, beloved New England Storyteller and popular children's author, is a former New Yorker born and bred on Staten Island. Tonight she treks down from her Brookline, Massachusetts home to debut the release of her 4th C.D. recording "My Bad Bad Dog and Other Neighbors". Norah's stories about her bad dog, good neighbors, her older brother and her Aunty Vera, along with bass player Eric Parker's musical improvisations will take us back to the time when Staten Island was positively rural. They are guaranteed to inspire us to share our own "growing up in a New York City" stories, be it Staten Island, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens or "da Bronx." Come prepared to swap!

Norah Dooley's experience ranges far and wide. She has been presenting workshops and stories throughout New England for people of all ages and has performed in major festivals all over New York and New England. In addition to her storytelling CDs, she is the author of several popular picture books for children.

Jacob Varmus Quintet
will perform music from the newly released recording 'All the Things We Still Can Be' (Crows Kin) as well as a fresh batch of bold new originals. Acompelling mix of accessibility and nuance, the quintet focuses on music that sounds natural without adhering to any theory or dictum-except perhaps Debussy's "pleasure is the law".

Being pushed in a pram along the banks of Milan's La Scala in 1976 the two-year old Jacob Varmus suddenly emitted squeals and shrieks of unmasked delight. the most raptous sounds he'd ever heard were bouncing off the plaza stone: a lone trumpeter's warming up from within open stage doors at the local opera house. Thirty years later Jacob has a trumpet of his own and is finding his voice as a musician, composer and songwriter of boundless vision. His newly released debut as a leader features Varmus originals that provide great showcases for himself as for the rest of his band.
Jacob is a member of Astoria Chamber Symphony and the artistic director for Astoria Music Society's jazz concert series.

Nate Wooley grew up in a Finnish-American fishing village in Oregon. He has spent the rest of his life trying musically to find a way back to the peace and quiet of that time by whole-heartedly embracing the space between complete absorption in sound and relative absence of the same. He began playing trumpet professionally at age 13 with his father, and after studying he moved to Colorado where he studied more with Ron Miles, Art Lande, Fred Hess, and improvisation master Jack Wright. His tenure with Jack began to break Nate out of self-imposed molds and into the sound world that he has embraced as his own. www.natewooley.com

Two contemporary jazz masters come together for the first time to create an exciting new brass project!

John McNeil is regarded as one of the most original and creative jazz artists in the world today. For nearly three decades John has toured with his own groups and has received widespread acclaim as both a player and composer. His highly personal trumpet style communicates across the full range of contemporary jazz, and his compositions combine harmonic freedom with melodic accessibility. John’s restless experimentation has kept him on the cutting edge of new music.

His background includes the Horace Silver Quintet, Gerry Mulligan, and the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra. John is equally at home in free and structured settings, and this versatility has put him on stage with artists from Slide Hampton to John Abercrombie. www.mcneiljazz.com

Since 1982, trumpeter Ron Horton has been an integral part of New York’s flourishing jazz scene and he stands out both as an exemplary instrumentalist and as a highly progressive composer and arranger. Whether called upon as a sideman or as a leader of one of his own ensembles, he shows that he is committed to further expanding the existing perimeters of jazz.

Entertaining Science -- Chateau Jiahu, Vintage 7000 BC image
Chateau Jiahu, Vintage 7000 BC

This evening, you will have the chance to taste Chateau Jiahu, the most ancient, chemically-attested alcoholic beverage in the world, dating back to about 7000 B.C. It is a mixed fermented beverage of malted rice, wild-flower honey, and white grapes, fermented on a sake yeast with hawthorn berries. Patrick McGovern of the University of Pennsylvania Museum’s Biomolecular Archaeology laboratory will discuss how his lab and colleagues resurrected ancient Chinese and Near Eastern beverages.

Darrin Siegfried, wine expert and restaurateur, former Sommelier Society of America President, will comment on the qualities of the new old wines, and lead the tasting. Music will be provided by Katie Down, playing water – whoops, wine – glasses. And choreographer and dancer Rachel Cohen will invest the peaceful glade of the Cornelia Street Café with her troupe of possessed women. Any bulls nearby may be sacrificed, for this night Dionysus rules!

Usually Entertaining Science has just one show. This time, by popular demand, there will be two shows, at 6 PM and at 8: 30PM. When you call the café for a reservation, please specify the show.

We append a joint communique from Patrick McGovern and Dogfish Head, the great Delaware brewery, whose master brewers were responsible for reconstructing this ancient recipe:

9000 years old, Chateau Jiahu stands apart as the most ancient, chemically-attested alcoholic beverage in the world. The pottery vessels that held the chemical clues were painstakingly excavated inside tombs and houses by Chinese archaeologists at the early Neolithic site of Jiahu in the Yellow River Basin. Some tombs also yielded flutes made from the forelimbs of the revered red-crowned crane--among the oldest known playable musical insttruments ever discovered. The re-creation of this historic beverage is based on state-of-the-art microanalysis of pottery residues by laboratories at the University of Pennsylvania Museum and elsewhere. The modern "Neolithic-inspired" interpretation was brewed by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton, Delaware.

“It’s pretty amazing to consider that the birth of this 'beer' pretty much coincided with the birth of complex societies”, says Dogfish Head President Sam Calagione. “It was about 10,000 years ago that humans transitioned from hunter-gatherer nomads to settled, crop-harvesting communities. I’m sure beverages like Chateau Jiahu helped convince our ancestors that the reward of growing crops like rice and barley was worth the wait.”

In keeping with the ancient organic evidence Chateau Jiahu is brewed with malted rice, white grapes, wildflower amber honey, and fermented on a sake yeast with hawthorn berries. The result is a refreshing, dry, and fruity nectar unlike anything the world has seen…at least in ninety-or-so centuries. Melding the flavors and aromatic nuances of ale, mead, cider, and sake to 9% alc. by vol. this hybrid beverage pairs perfectly with spicy Asian and South-American cuisines, curries, and BBQ.

Tonight will be its first tasting. Later this year it will be loosed on the general public in champagne bottles.

LA BALTEUBAND - argentine jazz image
La Balteuband is an instrumental ensemble lead by Emilio Teubal. His compositions are a blend of jazz and elements of Argentine music, such as rhythms like chacarera and zamba along with the lyricism of tango melodies.

La Balteuband's music consists of rhythmically and harmonically rich pre-composed structures and improvised sections that highlight the musicality of each member of the band. This is what makes each performance of the group so fresh and special.

The compositional influences of Emilio Teubal include Astor Piazolla, Hermeto Pascual, Egberto Gismonti, and great masters of the jazz tradition such as Duke Ellington, Gil Evans, and Charles Mingus. La Balteuband has performed in New York venues such as the Knitting Factory, Cornelia Street Cafe, Nublu, Bowery Poetry Club, Galapagos Arts Space, and was included in the Argentine Jazz series at El Taller Latinoamericano during the summer of 2005.
