Bob Feldman, saxophone & bamboo flute;  Chris Sullivan, bass;  Jay Rosen, drums
Born in New York City, Bob Feldman discovered jazz in the 60s through "Kind of Blue". It was a time of great creativity and change for jazz, and New York was at the center. Coleman Hawkins, Ellington, Mionk, Mingus, Coltrane, Ornette Coleman – for Bob, they were all a subway ride away.

His first instrument was clarinet, but the tenor saxophone, through Coltrane, Sonny Rollins and Stan Getz quickly won him over. There were jam sessions, opportunities to sit in with Cecil Taylor, Mingus, Max Roach, Pharoah Sanders; it was a trial by fire. In the 70s Bob went to

8:30PM  THOMSON KNEELAND AND KAKALLA CD RELEASE PARTY
Thomson Kneeland, bass;  David Smith, trumpet;  Nate Radley, guitar;  Take Toriyama, drums

Cd release for The Seeds of Analog Rebellion

Kakalla is dedicated to the fusion of jazz improvisation with Balkan folk music, chamber music, rock, the avant-garde, electronic and other influences. The group has performed concerts, clubs, and festivals throughout the eastern US, and their third CD, The Seeds of Analog Rebellion, was released in Nov 2004 and debuted at #1 on the WNUR jazz charts Chicago and #3 on CJSR. Kakalla is on the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s New England Touring Roster, has received grants from the Worcester Cultural Commission and other Massachusetts cultural councils, and is on the soundtrack for Magdalena’s Brain (2004).
Musically, the group performs all original material, with a view to combining intricate composition with the freedom of individual and collective improvisation. The ensemble’s goal is not to authenticate or reproduce a musical tradition, but to interpret and fuse seemingly disparate traditions into a single “folk” music: the Kakalla, a music intensely personal and indicative of the members’ life experiences.   http://www.kakalla.com http://www.thomsonkneeland.com
