Hee Hawk
Hee Hawk is a jazz, folk, and new music ensemble. The group has been performing across New England for the past year and is a rising force in the world of acoustic music. Hee Hawk performs the original compositions of pianist Adam Lipsky. With strong roots in the jazz tradition, the players in Hee Hawk apply their harmonic awareness and improvisation technique to the original pieces. While some of the pieces have open melodies reminiscent of Appalachian string music, others have dark, more intricate harmonic content that shows influence from such luminaries as Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus. With the highly emotive sensibilities of Appalachian and Depression-era folk music, the group weaves between consonance and dissonance bringing out all the soul of the blues. The sound of Hee Hawk is raw, elegant, and urgently vital.
“Adam Lipsky’s music has a compelling blend of lyricism and introspection.”
- Marty Ehrlich, Musician

Adam Caine – guitar / Federico Ughi – drums
Brooklyn Experimental Improvisers THE MOON Release Debut CD, Tour the US/Canada, October 2012
The Moon self-releases a debut CD, "11 01 11," recorded live in Denver CO and Brooklyn NY on their 2011 tour, in time to hit the road in Oct 2012 on a 15-date tour.

The Moon takes a highly individual approach to experimental music, playing improvised music that is influenced in equal parts by contemporary classical composition, jazz, noise and psych-rock. The results are visceral, unpredictable and virtuosic.

The Moon is a duo of guitarist Adam Caine and drummer Federico Ughi. Both are established in the New York City jazz and improvised music scene, playing with musicians such as William Parker, Connie Crothers, Daniel Carter, Glenn Branca, Darius Jones and Paul Smoker. Both have appeared on numerous albums as leaders and sidemen. The Adam Caine Trio's "Thousandfold" was released in 2009 by Lithuania's NoBusiness records, and Federico Ughi's "Songs for Four Cities" was released in 2012 on Sweden's Skycap label.
