FOLLOW THE STICK
Sam Sadigursky, clarinet;  Bobby Avey, piano;  Jordan Perlson , drums
Follow the Stick image

After releasing four acclaimed albums of original settings of poetry and text for New Amsterdam Records, Sadigursky pares down with a new group that presents a modern take on the classic clarinet trios of the 1930's and 40's. As they present a large body of work that Sadigursky has written over the past five years, this traditional, yet unconventional instrumentation forces each musician to redefine their roles and bring group interaction to the front and center. The writing combines many of the styles and facets of Sadigursky's varied career and musical loves, including influences from modern jazz, South American styles, classical, minimalist, gospel, swing and American folk music styles.

"Sadigursky reinvents the clarinet for the 21st century" - London Jazz News

"…personal, not particularly restricted by ideas of musical genre, quite complex and resolutely unshowy" - Ben Ratliff, The New York Times

5M'S--MYSTERY, MEANING, MAGIC, MARCELO & MARK
Marcelo Gleiser, physicist;  Mark Mitton, magician
How much can we know of the world? Can we know everything? If not, what is this thing we call "Reality," and how do we fit into it? This is a night where cutting-edge science confronts the mystery of existence and our place in the cosmos.

Join award-winning physicist, writer, and NPR blogger Marcelo Gleiser, author of The Island of Knowledge, for a unique journey into the known and the unknown.

And who better to mystify and beguile us with probability and impossibility than magician extraordinaire, Mark Mitton, who has shared our stage with scientists of every ilk. There are things that Mark does which defy reason but define mystery. Marcelo, you will have a lot on your plate--provided it doesn't vanish before your eyes.

Jesse and Forever image

Jesse and Forever is part David Bowie, part Coltrane quartet. Led by saxophonist and singer-songwriter Jesse Scheinin, their debut CD was described in the San Jose Mercury News as being "an album of dreamy songs laced with ecstasy and longing... Scheinin is well on his way toward working out a solution to the age-old conflict between Dionysian and Apollonian impulses, between his urge to cut loose and his desire to explore music's recondite mysteries."
