-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.
