Unheard: Adam O'Farrill, Immanuel Wilkins, Joel Ross
Aug
26
3:00 PM15:00

Unheard: Adam O'Farrill, Immanuel Wilkins, Joel Ross

UNHEARD is a contemporary reflection of Charlie Parker, and how he advanced a musical language in ways that were largely undiscovered beforehand. The project will take inspiration from his music in manners both direct and abstract, and everything in between. The presence of percussion in the ensemble will also pay respect to Bird’s undervalued contribution to Afro-Cuban jazz, and effectively allowing O’Farrill, Ross, and Wilkins to further expand their compositional voices.

CHARLIE PARKER JAZZ FESTIVAL
Sunday, August 26, 2018
3pm – 7pm

KADAWA//Joanna Sternberg//Gaya Sings Connie at Threes Brewing

Excited to present a special night of music, these musicians are not something to be missed: 

8:00 - Joanna Sternberg Solo
https://joannasternberg.bandcamp.com/

9:00 - KADAWA
In a world where daily life revolves around a screen and a finger, KADAWA gives their audience an ‘offline’ experience worth lifting their heads for. 
Born in Israel and based in New York City, the collective-trio of guitarist Tal Yahalom, double bassist Almog Sharvit and drummer Ben Silashi performs original music by all three members, alongside their own interpretations of pieces by David Bowie, Bjork and Ornette Coleman, among others. Drawing inspiration from jazz, rock, cinema and literature to create song-like instrumental compositions driven by mood, sound and improvisation, KADAWA’s music inhabits many different dimensions of a wide musical spectrum.

10:00 - I Have Considered The Lilies - Gaya Sings Connie:

Disappearing in 1974, folk musician and songwriter Connie Converse left behind a unique, wistful and haunting body of work that for many years remained unheard. Gaya found Connie earlier this year, and sat with her songs as they delicately unfolded. Amidst stories and melodies beautifully interwoven, it is an immense pleasure to relive Connie's enigma through Gaya's blooming reimagination.

Gaya Feldheim Schorr - voice, guitar
Grey Mcmurray - guitar, voice
Tal Yahalom - guitar
Eva Lawitts - bass

Doors open at 8pm, $12 cover for the whole night!
Looking forward to play, hang and see you all there 🙌

Glassbath at The Way Station

to Aug 4

Glassbath at The Way Station

Come join us as we rock out at The Way Station in Brooklyn! I'll have physical copies of the album for sale.

Glassbath
Peyton Pleninger - tenor
Edward Gavitt - guitar
Nick Dunston - bass
Colin Hinton - drums/comp

"Hinton’s Glassbath channels the edgy jazz/rock of Jim Black's AlasNoAxis, the vast sonic landscapes of post-rock pioneers such as Mogwai and Godspeed You! Black Emperor, the post-hardcore/indie-rock of Dallas’ Red Animal War, and the audacious experimental jazz of Anthony Braxton, Henry Threadgill, and Peter Brotzmann.

"It's like if electrifying groups such as Sonic Youth and Wire were having a conversation with jazz explorers like David Murray and Fred Anderson"
-Jazztrail 2018
