"pool"

Direction: Naomi Bennett
Featuring: Shawn Pauling, Jason Jedrusiak, Marlena Merrin, Brent Walton, and Li Feng.
Music: Clinton Degan
Poetry: Sarah Pearlstein

To benefit FEED FUND : Support The Starving Artist In Your Life!

Using Mark Ravenhill's play “pool (no water)” as inspiration, pool is an original performance focusing on the themes of Artistic Jealousy and being Present vs. Absent. This piece is being collaboratively created with the cast, primarily using forms from Interplay theater (with some exception).

This is a work-in-progress showing, and your feedback is greatly encouraged. There will not be a formal talk back, but there will be time after the show to mingle with the artists. We are also raising money to the cost of the final show in January. Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated.

FEED FUND
This semi-irregular performance series is designed to both showcase and raise money for local starving artists, while feeding you! In a time when everyone is feeling the financial burden, coming together to support each other as a community is more important that ever. Enjoy good food, good drink, and good conversation.

Mario Rechtern (Austria) - alto/baritone/sopranino sax and electric saxolin
Syd Smart - drums
Eric Zinman - piano

Bill Dixon said, "we do not discriminate against sound, all sounds are beautiful." Yet instead of searching for a sound, many musicians are content to have THE sound, a finality to their expressive capabilities, a plateau endorsed by "culture". Nostalgia reveals the taste of power. New Language Collaborative is ALWAYS in search of a sound, an expression that IS form. From my experience, this is the innocence of creation. Each musician tells their own story and keeps their own time. Without these human voices the jungle would seem lonely. Music is mysteriously ideology. There is no peace, only the joy of hunger and fulfillment, continuity and exquisite form.

Their first recording was a digital release on Ayler Records in 2008 called Unified Fields.

"It is the total group sound that predominates, however. If free blow-outs attract you, you'll find this one satisfies your need for exuberant chaos, but in ways that show the mastery of the artists and their own original take on the scene. "

David Maxwell's Quantum Mathematics
Kevin Frenette – guitar / David Maxwell - keys / Bruno Raberg - bass / Luther Gray - drums

David Maxwell has amassed an enormous resume throughout the years playing piano with some of the greatest and well-known musicians in jazz and blues. David plays many styles of jazz, improvised music and blues, but he is best known for his soulful virtuosity and unmatched ability to reach the heart of post-war Chicago Blues. Through his work, he has gained the respect of artists, critics and fans and has established a reputation as one of the finest blues pianists alive.


Boston area guitarist Kevin Frenette has performed throughout the Northeast USA making music that is inspired by both avant-garde jazz and contemporary improvisation. He studied guitar, composition, and music theory at UMASS-Dartmouth where he received a BA in Theory/Composition. He has performed and/or recorded with such artists as Tatsuya Nakatani, Jack Wright, Joe Giardullo, Pandelis Karayorgis, Daniel Levin, Luther Gray, and Harvey Sorgen. In 2007, Fuller Street Music released Kevin’s first date as a leader: CONNECTIONS. That album featured Frenette with Tatsuya Nakatani on percussion, Andy McWain on piano and Todd Keating on bass.



Drummer Luther Gray was born March 10, 1972 in New Orleans, LA. His family moved to Washington, D.C. where, as a teenager, he started playing drums in punk rock bands. Though largely self-taught, his musical training involved drum lessons from Kim Martin, Larry Bright, Steve Bagby, and Mickey Newman. In 1995 he graduated the University of Miami with a Bachelor of Music, after which he taught privately and performed in the Washington , D.C. area with, among others, Butch Warren, Cecil Payne, Webster Young, Tsunami, Jenny Toomey, Bob Butta, and Buck Hill. Upon moving to Boston in 2000 he resumed teaching private drum lessons and has played with Joe Morris, Anthony Braxton, Jay Hoggard, Joe McPhee, Cameron Brown, Allan Chase, Joseph Daly, Sabir Mateen, Roy Campbell, Ida, Geoff Farina, Andrew White, Rob Brown, Bill Lowe, Taylor Ho Bynum, Raqib Hassan, Bill Pierce, Mitch Seidman, Steve Swell, Joe Beck, Fred Anderson, Ken Vandermark and many others. Luther has performed in festivals and concerts across the country and abroad. He has recorded for the Simple Machines, Hat Hut, Riti Rec, Skycap, Clean Feed, Xeng, Atavistic, and Jardis labels, among others. In addition to his performing schedule Luther teaches art and music at an after-school program for elementary school children.

Ara Sarkissian – piano / Julee Avalone – flutes /Todd Brunel – clarinets / Kit Demos – bass / John Mclellan - drumset

The Palimpsest Ensemble, led by Ara Sarkissian, combines the art of group improvisation with a strict adherence to musical form. Thus, unlike many other musical situations in which we as players use the technique of improvisation in an open form setting, this ensemble requires the application of improvisatory techniques within strict rules pertaining to form, texture, motivic development, dynamics and other elements.

Broadcloth performs improvised music with a nod to various compositional outlets. Using a unique instrumentation of voice, cello and accordion/recorders, the trio plays from notated, graphic, embroidered, and textual scores in addition to completely spontaneous pieces. Without shying away completely from virtuosity, Broadcloth creates music that reflects the order of composition and the risk of unpredictable musical interactions. Emphasis lies on establishing a holistic sound that favors cooperation over hierarchy. Broadcloth is based in New Haven, CT, and performs regularly in the area, also appearing in NYC at such venues as The Stone and ABC No Rio.

Triple Bill! Featuring electronic, free improvised music and an electronic solo quartet.

Saxophones in Machines

is a sax duo improvising with computer manipulation. Computer chips meets wet reeds and bass with unpredictable results. Mike Dobiel and Kelly Roberge will work to bring the machines to a higher understanding of humanity through creative improvisation.

Cereal
a trio featuring Jesse Kaminsky on alto, Keiichi Hasimoto on trumpet and Kelly Roberge on tenor saxophone perform freely improvised music

All of Us
is an electronic solo quartet formed by saxophonist Kelly Roberge in 2010. Performing several midi instruments and character sketches, Roberge takes on the roles of a four member band which performs sax heavy compositions ranging from jazz to metal. Merging Roberge’s love of music and improv comedy, the characters interact as real life people living ordinary lives in their respective communities.

"All of Us " backstory:
Answering Kelly’s craigslist post to create an online electrochestra in late 2009, Stan, Marty and Cecil met on skype to do some cyber jamming. Since all the members live all over (Illinois, Minnesota, England and Massachusetts), they have to rehearse online by linking up their computers, midi instruments and saxophone. Technology has allowed this band to exist in its rehearsal phase but live gigs require a lot of frequent flyer miles!

Sons of Daughters
Patric Breiner – tenor / Aaron Darrell – bass / Devin Drobka - drums

SonsOfDaughters.Bandcamp.com


Sons of Daughters. Everybody's mother is somebody's daughter, brother. Dig?

This trio of brilliant young improvisers plays incendiary originals and reaches deep into the pantheon of jazz classics. They come from Boston, New York, and Madison, WI to deliver the kind of telepathy-laced shang-a-lang that transcends their geographical limitations.

Sons of Daughters was born through an unlikely union in Wisconsin. Having heard for months of young guns Aaron Darrell and Devin Drobka, Patrick Breiner traveled from his home in Madison to Milwaukee in May of 2010 for a one nighter at the Jazz Estate. He showed up a half hour late and the band was already knee deep in an epic performance of "Autumn Leaves". Breiner stepped on stage to take a solo before the rest of the band even realized he had shown up. He didn't meet the bass player and drummer until the set break. It took about a minute and a half for them to start making jokes about farts and poo (a surefire sign that they would become thick as thieves.).

Soon after, Aaron moved to Boston Devin moved to New York City. Patrick stayed put in Madison, Wisconsin where he continues to undermine the lounge jazz scene one gig at a time.

Their collective resumes include performances with Jerry Bergonzi, Tony Malaby, Michael Formanek, Greg Osby, Joe Lovano, Dave Ballou, Ches Smith Phil Grenadier, Dave Santoro, and Bruce Barth to name but a few.

-Daniel Carter, MULTI REEDS, TRUMPET:

Over the past three decades-plus, Daniel Carter has performed with: Sun Ra, Billy Bang, Roger Baird, William Parker, Roy Campbell, Sabir Mateen, Simone Forti, Joan Miller, Thurston Moore, Nayo Takasaki, Earl Freeman, Dewey Johnson, Nami Yamamoto, Matthew Shipp, Wilber Morris, Denis Charles, MMW (Medeski, Martin, & Wood), Vernon Reid, Raphé Malik, Sam Rivers, Sunny Murray, Hamiet Bluiett, Cecil Taylor, David S.

-Bill Elgart, PERCUSSION:

Bill Elgart, often credited as Billy Elgart is one of many American jazz musicians who have settled in Europe. Quite often based out of Munich, Elgart's credits include appearances on some choice Paul Bley records. Mr. Elgart replaced Paul Motian in Bley's band in the early 70's, and jazz listeners have the opportunity to directly compare the two drummers on several albums on which they both appear. Elgart has also collaborated with vibraphonist, pianist, composer and bandleader Karl Berger, appearing on that artist's return to recording following a hiatus, No Man Is an Island on the Knit Classics label. European musicians seem fond of having Elgart around, as he has appeared in a steady series of interesting bands through the 80's and 90's, with no signs of letting up. He will frequently have a superb rhythm section partner, such as Dave Holland on recordings with trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, or fine bassists such as Ed Schuller and Wayne Darling. Elgart performs frequently in these different contexts and also presents workshops for drummers all over Europe as well as giving private instruction. With the South African bassist Carlo Mombelli, the drummer played time feels both funky and free in the intriguing Zollsound 4, backing up a twin horn, piano-less line- up featuring alto saxophonist Lee Konitz and baritone saxophonist Thomas Zoller. From 1982 through 1990 he was a member of the Sundial trio fronted by guitarist Peter O'Mara, which recorded three albums and toured with Wheeler as a guest. In 1991 Elgart began working in the Caoma band, founded by tenor and soprano saxophinist Sigi Finkel and also featuring Schuller and Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko. The latter artist also played with Elgart in a quartet under the leadership of Vlatko Kucan. In 2001, Elgart and Berger were both part of the Annemarie Roelofs Projekt, recording for the Double Moon label with Frank Möbus, Vitold Rek and Ingrid Sertso.

Black Ocean & Brave Men Press present
"In a State of Glory"
Two independent presses bring four poets together to read at both ends
of Massachusetts in one weekend to celebrate the arrival of Julie
Doxsee, who will be traveling all the way from Istanbul to read her
new book, “Objects for a Fog Death” (Black Ocean 2010). There will
also be wine.

About the authors:


Julie Doxsee lives and writes in Istanbul on the European shores of
the Bosphorus, where since 2007 she has been teaching creative writing
and literature courses at a private university near the Black Sea. She
is the author of Objects for a Fog Death (Black Ocean 2010) and
Undersleep (Octopus Books 2008), as well as several chapbooks.

Sarah Goldstein was born in Toronto and lives in western Massachusetts. Her poetry has appeared in various journals, and is forthcoming in Caketrain, Bateau, and Denver Quarterly. Her first book, Fables, will be published by Tarpaulin Sky Press next spring.

Janaka Stucky is practicing the perfection of effort while working on
silent relationships with knives, pugilism, and a history of
tentacles. He is also the Publisher of Black Ocean and its literary
magazine, Handsome, and was recently voted “Boston’s Best Poet” for
2010 in the Boston Phoenix. He likes his whiskey neat and his music
dirty.

Brian Foley is the author of The Black Eye. He edits SIR! Magazine,
currates The Deep Moat Reading Series and with EB Goodale runs Brave
Men Press. He lives in Northampton and attends UMass Amherst program
for Poets & Writers.
