rob chalfen & subconsciouscafe productions presents
"Metta Music"

Peter Kuhn – woodwinds / Dave Sewelson – bari sax / Damon Smith – bass / Ra Kalam Bob Moses - drums


Metta is a Pali word for the Buddhist virtue of Loving Kindness, a sincere wish for the welfare and genuine happiness of all beings, without exception. The music we play is spiritual in nature, a celebration of life and based on the intention of liberating all beings. While Dave and Pete have played, performed and recorded together for more than 40 years this is the first time playing with Ra Kalam Bob Moses and Damon Smith. Grounded in this spirit of good will we will play music of the moment, embracing the great mystery of life and collective consciousness, as it develops and transforms in instant composition. May we embrace each moment of life with open heart and open ears. May we and all beings be lifted in spirit and find freedom from suffering.

Çeşni Trio - Original music inspired by the Ottoman Art Music Tradition

Tev Stevig - tanbur, 7-string fretless guitar, alterna-telli

Michael Harrist - contrabass, yayli tanbur, ney

Fabio Pirozzolo - darbuka, bendir, cajon, tombak, armenian dhol



We've been working on new material and arranging old pieces with new instrumentation as we look forward to a series of concerts and recording sessions to come. The trio is excited to be continue the monthly series at Outpost in this new year!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWJoGzYKqhQ


At turns romantic and elegant, vivacious and playful, the music of Çeşni Trio is grounded in the flavors (çeşniler) of Turkish makam music while remaining deeply personal and contemporary. The ensemble guides the listener from dove-tailing contemplative melodies to odd-metered tunes that throw caution to the wind. A well placed breath opens the ceiling, an evocative ornament opens the heart.

Stevig and Harrist first met in Istanbul in 2010. Back home in Boston, MA they found themselves playing and studying Ottoman art music together in Orkestra Marhaba. As an idea for a trio began to take hold, the group found kinship with Pirozzolo and Çeşni Trio was born.

A modal music tradition, Türk sanat müziği (Turkish art music) developed in the urban areas of the Ottoman Empire and has a history of over 500 years. The tradition includes a wide range of repertoire, composers, and practitioners. Çeşni Trio draws from this great tradition and the more modern stylings of contemporary musician-composers such as Erkan Oğur, Ross Daly, Murat Aydemir, and Efrén López.

Sunday 2 April @ Outpost, 8pm $10 or b/o

Hush Point

Jeremy Udden - alto saxophone
John McNeil - trumpet
Aryeh Kobrinsky - bass
Anthony Pinciotti – drums




Hush Point's second release on Sunnyside Records, "Blues and Reds" has plenty of momentum, having received 4.5 stars in Downbeat, and a feature on the album and John McNeil on NPR's "All Things Considered"



The chordless quartet has been described as playing "...dry and intimate and surprising music, much of it a kind of X-rayed blues language, volume cut in half, swing rhythm subtly stretched into more up-to-date grooves..." (Ben Ratliff - New York Times). "Hush Point’s methods and musicianship are exemplary, setting the new standard for the pianoless jazz quartet." (James Rozzi - Jazziz)









The foursome has a kinetic chemistry no less powerful for being kept under a constant, careful restraint.

Shaun Brady, DOWNBEAT



The band focuses on subtle interplay and refined melodic improvisation, demonstrating an elegant rapport too often lacking in jazz today.

Peter Margasak, CHICAGO READER



The quartet’s newly released, self-titled début album is among the most substantial jazz releases of the year so far.

THE NEW YORKER



The quartet Hush Point conjures the possibilities of small group hipness. One that quips instead of guffaws, and prefers covertness to the obvious.

Mark Corroto, ALL ABOUT JAZZ NEW YORK
