Harvey Diamond Trio

Harvey Diamond – piano / Jon Dreyer – bass / Miki Matsuki - drums

The legendary jazz pianist Harvey Diamond has graced the Boston area for decades with his music which is at once both deeply technical and deeply emotional to even the most casual listener. Harvey, a protégé of the great Lennie Tristano, has performed with Sheila Jordan, Art Farmer, Charles Neville and many others. After decades of patience by his fans, he has finally released his first CD as a leader, The Harvey Diamond Trio.



Bassist Jon Dreyer, a student of Harvey Diamond, has become one of his closest collaborators. He also performs regularly with James Merenda, both as a member of his band TickleJuice and also in more mainstream jazz settings, and has performed with most of the Boston jazz community, including Adam Janjigian, Yoko Miwa, Frank Wilkins, Joe Hunt and Steve Langone.



Drummer Miki Matsuki moved to the United States to study jazz at Berklee College of Music in 1996. Miki’s band received the title ‘Best of Berklee’ in 2000. Thereafter, Miki received a full scholarship to The Longy School Of Music, where she graduated with her MM and GPD in Modern American Music Performance with honors. Since then, Miki has performed and recorded in various musical settings, including performances through radio and TV broadcasting, a musical tour of Korea, and soundtrack work. Miki has performed with many great musicians, including Wynton Marsalis, Joanne Brackeen, George Garzone, John Tchicai, Darren Barrett, Frank Lacy, Cecil Brooks, Dave Bryant, Stan Strickland and many others.

There will be no set list and no charts. Anything can happen. Listen to what Warne Marsh called "the spontaneous creation of beauty."

Controversial One-Man Show Returns to Outpost 186

 The Chronic Single's Handbook               

 Novelist and indy theater veteran Randy Ross provides an unflinching look at how men feel about sex, love, marriage, and massage parlors.

  "Charming with a side of creepy" The Georgia Straight (Vancouver fringe festival) "A lot of fun to watch." Four Stars (Winnipeg Free Press) (Winnipeg fringe)
 


"Sharply funny"…"Some of life's tougher punch lines"…"A quality solo show" FringeReview (Edinburgh fringe)

The Show: The Chronic Single’s Handbook is a one-man show by Randy Ross about a never-married hypochondriac who travels the world looking to change his luck with love. Remember Eat, Pray, Love? This is nothing like it.






The story begins in Boston and goes astray in Greece, South Africa, and Southeast Asia. Along the way, audiences hear the stories “Domination for Dummies” and “One Day at The Curious Finger Body Spa.” 


The one-hour show has been featured at 13 fringe theater festivals around the U.S., Canada, and in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 2015, The Chronic Single's Handbook sold out three shows at Outpost 186.



Please note: The Chronic Single's Handbook carries content warnings for adult situations, adult language, and more adult situations. 



The Writer/Performer: Randy Ross is a Boston-area story-teller, novelist, and Web consultant. His comedic novel, God Bless Cambodia, will be published by The Permanent Press in 2017. His fiction, erotica, and humor have appeared in The Drum, Black Heart Magazine, and ForTheGirls.com, a porn site for women. In 2007, Ross took a four-month, solo trip around the world and learned to say in three languages: “Speak English?” “Got Pepto-Bismol?” and “Where is the evacuation helicopter?” The Chronic Single's Handbook was inspired by the trip.



Show dates:

Thurs 11/10 at 8PM

Fri 11/11 at 8PM

Sat 11/12 at 8PM

Sun 11/13 matinee at 2:30PM


Tickets: $20 at the door with half-priced specials available. Contact Randy at randy@randyrossmedia.com for more information.

Çeşni Duo - Original music inspired by the Ottoman Art Tradition

Tev Stevig - tanbur, 7-string fretless guitar, saz, oud

Michael Harrist - contrabass, yayli tanbur



This month we will be premiering new pieces and arrangements!

Tev and Mike first met by happenstance in Istanbul in 2010. Back home in Boston, MA they found themselves playing and studying Ottoman art music with Orkestra Marhaba. A modal tradition, Ottoman art music has a history of over 500 years and includes a wide range of repertoire, composers, and practitioners.

This project is a creative outlet for original composition and improvisation within the style. The concert may include a few favorites from the repertoire as well.
