Charles Overton Group + Factory Quartet



Charles Overton Group - Charles Overton – harp / Max Ridley – bass / Peter Barnick - drums

Factory Quartet - Matt Hull – trumpet / Neta Raanan - tenor sax / Max Ridley – bass / Peter Barnick - drums



Factory Quartet is a Jazz/Improvised-music quartet comprised of four Boston area musicians. Performing in & around the greater Boston area since the group’s inception in 2015, the quartet recently collaborated with local tap dance company Subject:Matter on a multi-disciplinary performance drawing influence from Ornette Coleman, Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk with debut shows at the company’s home, the Deborah Mason School of Dance (as well as The Dance Hall in Kittery, Maine & How to Fix the World Fest in Somerville). Now focused on writing new material and developing new sounds, the group has started incorporating electronic/looping elements into their live set.




The Charles Overton Group is a Boston-based band that hopes to offer a fresh take on the tradition of small ensemble jazz.  Their goal in their music is to pay homage to this century-old tradition through their explorations in spontaneous composition and other improvised forms while also hoping to tread new ground by allowing their own distinct musical backgrounds to shape and color their approach to playing standards, music of today's artists, and their own original music.  Since coming together in the Spring of 2015 they have made a name for themselves in Boston starting with headlining their own show at Sculler's Jazz Club in April of 2016.  More recently their first CD for commercial release entitled "Convergence" was made avaiable in July of this year, and in the 2017-2018 season are set to appear at several festivals including the Camac festival in Washington D.C. and the Ancenis Harp Festival in Ancenis, France.  Whether playing recognizable pop melodies, unique arrangements of standards, or exploring more eclectic and dissonant sound worlds, it is the goal of the Charles Overton Group, through the vehicle of improvised music, to create a musical environment that is accessible, inviting and can resonate with any audience.









Friday 26 January @ Outpost, 8pm $10 or b/o

James Merenda & Tickle Juice

James Merenda - alto sax / Tom Duprey – cornet / Vanessa Morris – piano  Paul Dilley - guitar / Scott Sandvik – guitar  / Maria Gorkun – violin / Paul Dilley - guitar /Jon Dreyer – bass / Miki Matsuki - drums


With their debut album Roots to the Stars in 2014, improvisation meets liquid jazz, Bulgarian reggae and Michael Jackson at a rock concert, shaken (not stirred) with your local orchestra and resident street musicians. These parched and passionate improvisers meet the music of James Merenda, exploring beyond where dreams take you.







Saturday 27 January @ Outpost, 11am – 12pm

Open Mic For Morning People


This meetup is for musicians who would enjoy performing at an open mic held on weekend late mornings in the Cambridge/Somerville area and audience members who would enjoy them. Our vision for an open-mic for morning people is to create an atmosphere that is safe, supportive, fun and inclusive, of different kinds of music and people. First-timers and any kind of inter-generational collaborations are strongly encouraged. While the focus is on acoustic music, all genres and ages are welcome. Poetry, stand-up, or other kinds of performance art welcome, as well.

Artist's statement video:
https://vimeo.com/232540875

The goal, over time, is to build a community of like-minded performers and audience members who enjoy them. To help create a safe atmosphere, we ask that members following the following guidelines.

To help give more people the opportunity to perform, each performer may perform two songs or up to 10 minutes of time on-stage, whichever comes first.

To ensure that there is an audience for all performers, if you perform we ask that you then stay for the entire meet-up. We encourage you to bring friends as audience members!

To encourage younger people to attend, we ask that acts target a 'PG-13' rating.

To help get the group started, I am currently paying the monthly Meetup group fee out of my own pocket. At events I plan to pass a basket for donations.

Finally, members are requested not to use the group for the promotion of commercial products or services.

If you have any feedback about the group, please contact me. I am always looking for options for venues and would be open to any suggestions.

VIDEO OF THE GIG : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCCn9-o4JCE&sns=fb 

RAS MOSHE (Brooklyn) & New Language Collaborative

Ras Moshe Burnett - tenor sax, flute / Eric Zinman – piano / Glynis Lomon –cello / Syd Smart - percussion.



RAS pays homage to Coltrane, Albert Ayler, John Gilmore and his other favorites on a permanent basis. He has played with Bill Cole's Untempered Ensemble, Warren Smith, William Hooker, William Parker and Karl Berger. He definitely believes in the positive effect new music will have on social and personal change. The music is a spiritual and social force. The music is indeed the voice of the people.











Ras Moshe Burnett (Theodore Burnett III) is a jazz musician, saxophonist, poet, activist and teacher.  He hails from East New York/Brooklyn NY with maternal grandparents who hail from Harlem, NYC.





RAS studied music in the public schools, mentored in jazz history by Don Payne in Junior High. With his father and grandfather, he played in reggae bands in the 80's and early 90's, and has led his own jazz groups since 1987.



He is a nine-year member of Bill Cole's Untempered Ensemble featuring Warren Smith, Joseph Daley, Gerald Veasley, Althea SullyCole and Lisette Santiago.

RAS is the direct heir of a long family jazz performance heritage. His father Yaakov Levi (Ted Burnett II) played alto sax, flute and bass clarinet in the Brooklyn/Harlem area throughout the 70's.

His paternal grandfather Ted Burnett ("Barnett" professionally) played tenor and alto saxophones in the bands of Chick Webb, Earl Bostic, Lucky Millinder, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Don Redman, Henri Woode and many others after his arrival here from Jamaica in the early 1930's. Later on in the early 70's he began writing religious music for the church, most prominently for New Canaan Baptist Church in Brooklyn.



Ras believes in the positive effect that Jazz and New Music can have on personal and socio-political life and also utilizes jazz for social movements in the Black community and human rights causes. 

He is currently working toward a music therapy degree in the NY area.
