Chagall Performance Art Collaborative Presents

Saxophone Duos and…
A Call for Cat’s Cradle Palettes by The Brooklyn Soundpainting Ensemble

ChagallPAC makes and answers a call for palettes composed for a Soundpainting Opera inspired by Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle. This Opera, co-produced by Brooklyn Soundpainting Ensemble, ChagallPAC, and Brian Abbott, will premiere at the Drilling Company Theatre in New York City in Winter 2014. The OUTPOST can be considered, this evening, a testing ground, a construction zone, a tableaux blanche, for this opera. Palettes by Alec Watson, Brian Abbott, Claudio Gabriele, Diana Norma and, for good measure, one of the finest saxophone duos ever written, Duo Sonate for two alto saxophones by Paul Hindemith.

Mike Stockbridge
featuring  guitarist Mike Stockbridge
"Just two albums into his recording career and Mike Stockbridge is solidifying his reputation as one of the East Coast's most promising jazz guitarists. Stockbridge's second effort, Ama, jolts the imagination with his inventive and compelling playing. Stockbridge released his self-titled debut in 2009; two years later, Ama finds Stockbridge gaining confidence and focus, creating a work of bold experimentation and stunning precision." -
"Following up on his self-titled 2009 debut, New Hampshire native Mike Stockbridge establishes himself as one of the state’s top jazz guitarists with “Ama.” It’s a breath of fresh, fall air for a largely underserved genre in the area." - The Wire -
"He balances flash with finesse in a totally winning way. If Frank Zappa had started and stayed in jazz, he might sound like Stockbridge." – Michael Witthaus, Hippo Press –

Lewis Porter – solo piano

Lewis Porter, (, long known as a jazz educator ( music from Brandeis) and author of books including the most celebrated volume on John Coltrane, is also very active as a jazz pianist, keyboardist and composer. Known for a free and open attitude, he contributes to many types of musical situations. Dr. Porter has appeared in concert internationally with such masters as Dave Liebman, Ravi Coltrane, Judi Silvano with Joe Lovano, Jeff Coffin, Jane Ira Bloom, Wycliffe Gordon, Marc Ribot, and many others. He is a regular member of the Indian-influenced quartet Dharma Jazz with Badal Roy (  His three-movement concerto for saxophone and orchestra was performed by Dave Liebman at Harvard on April 19, 2012 and is now on youtube. He appears on the Liebman/Marc Ribot quintet CD (Enja, Fall 2012), and as sideperson or leader on various releases of Unseen Rain Records, Allen Lowe projects, Italian Encounter (live in Italy), and Transformation (duets with fellow pianist and Berklee professor Marc Rossi); and he appears on the Dharma Jazz CD Just Four, the duo CD with clarinetist David Rothenberg, and others.

The critics have said that Porter is “A helluva piano player” (Jazz Times). "Mixing experimental with traditional, [he] plays up a storm." (Midwest Record)  “Porter is a deep thinker.” (Swing Journal).  His music is “founded upon depth and cunning use of space" (  Porter was nominated for a liner-note Grammy in 1996. You can follow his occasional blog of his new jazz research here:

"Lewis Porter and co. have put together a wonderful recording full of inspired trio excursions and beautiful solo explorations….  It's full of surprises from tune to tune that captured me completely…   Bravo !!!"      Joe Lovano

" Lewis and the trio really go for it on this CD. A full panorama of contemporary jazz idioms are wonderfully dealt with here and several solo piano tracks are quite interesting. Lewis is besides a great jazz scholar a wonderful pianist."
Dave Liebman

"After many years as a significant jazz writer and educator, Lewis Porter is becoming an important pianist, where he investigates many styles and concepts with wit and grace."
Ethan Iverson of The Bad Plus

Molly Pinto Matigan and Friends
Singer/songwriter, traditional folk

Hailed for her "pure, sweet” singing style and her haunting compositions, Molly Pinto Madigan has performed extensively around the Boston area at venues such as Club Passim, Boston Celtic Music Festival, NEFFA, and notlob Parlor Concerts.  In 2009, she won first place in the Boston Folk Festival Songwriting Contest for her original song "Bound Away,” and she was recently awarded first place in the South Shore Folk Club's Ballad-Singing Competition as well as being named "Artist of the Year" at the Salem State University Music Awards.  As a member of the teen bluegrass band Jaded Mandolin and soloist in the Family Folk Chorale, Molly gained recognition for her vocal and songwriting skills, sharing the stage with artists such as Claire Lynch, Scott Alarik, John Carter Cash, and Tracy Grammer.

Since her debut in the Boston folk scene, Molly has submerged herself in the dark, luscious world of ballads, drawn to their magic, and her original songs echo with the whisperings of the American and European traditional music.
