MILE HIGH CLUB feat. Daniel Carter & Dave Miller
Daniel Carter (NYC) reeds, trumpet / Dave Miller (NYC) - drums / Junko Simons - cello / Kit Demos - bass / Jeff Platz - guitar


Daniel Carter is not an enigma, no more than a teeming forest is.
Give some sincerely up for true and you've made a commitment
which will last a lifetime, if you've got the mettle for searching

I first became aware of Daniel Carter's immense talents through
the collective HYPERLINK "
odim.html"Other Dimensions In Music. Every time, and I mean
every time, I've heard the man bring an instrument to his lips - be
it reeds, brass or flute - beautiful sounds emanate. His is a rare
natural gift, though he is learned a-plenty, never you mind about
the anarchy speak ~ in the sense that it is so commonly

If the world ever does truly silence for a moment please, the first
sounds I would want to hear are the ones that Daniel Carter
chooses, because I know that true democracy is deep in his

I love it with tears of joy when he laughs; I love the way he
dances. -SJ

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.
Ware, Karl Berger, Don Pate, Gunter Hampel, Alan Silva, Susie
Ibarra, D.J. Logic, Margaret Beals, Douglas Elliot, Butch Morris,
TRANSCENDENTALISTS, and many many many many others
(meaning more every week or day practically).

Mill City Trio
Jamie Dunphy – guitar / Greg Passler – guitar, bass / Tony D'Anna - drums

Since its formation in 2005, the Mill City Trio has appeared regularly in clubs, galleries and concert venues all over New England. They are dedicated to the performance of original jazz compositions, although recent concerts have included revved-up versions of "Canarios" by Baroque composer Gaspar Sanz, and "Overkill" by the 80's rock band Men at Work.

Mill City Trio released their debut CD, Solstice, in 2006 to extensive critical acclaim. Their 2008 release, Down Deep, was featured on "Eric in the Evening" on WGBH, Boston and "Jazz New England" on WICN, Worcester. Most recently, the trio has presented concerts in New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts featuring "The Syncopated Bird," an extended composition for jazz trio and narrator by Jamie and Drew Dunphy. Mill City Trio is currently performing in support of their third CD, Looking Up, which Music Web Express called, "one of the best guitar-based instrumental jazz albums of 2010."

Betty Widerski presents "Taking A Solo"

Members of several Boston bands stepping out on their own:

Reverse Polish Notation -- Betty Widerski (violinist for Ginger Ibex, Las Aboricuas, The Gobshites) presents her solo electric violin looping project.

-- Mel Fitzhugh (bassist for Emmy Cerra & Amber Spyglass) explores lute, bandora and vihuella music of the renaissance and baroque on electric guitar, along with some favorite Balkan and original tunes with special guest Cathy Reuben (flutist for Urban Myth).

- violinist Johanna Bobrow ( of Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band) joins singer/songwriter Deborah Haber to perform Haber's lyrically-driven brand of "raunchy jazz" and alternative art songs. "Some people are square on the beat - we're Rhombus."

“Reverse Polish Notation” is violinist Betty Widerski’s side project
(besides her two bands) consisting of original instrumental pieces on
string instruments over loops, samples and whatever other sounds she
finds. When performing live she combines an electric 5-string violin
with Boss loop stations to create layered improvisational compositions.

Her project is named after a type of mathematical notation wherein
“every operator follows all of its operands, precluding the need for
parentheses.” The description "Polish" refers to the nationality of
logician Jan Łukasiewicz, who invented (prefix) Polish notation in
1920s. During the 1970s and 1980s (when Betty was a Physics & Math
major) RPN was widely used in handheld calculators of the time.
