Sarah Bernstein "Unearthish" with Satoshi Takeishi

"Bernstein's compositions for violin and voice -- equal parts avant-garde jazz, spoken word, and minimalist groove -- are joined by Takeishi's expressive mastery on the drums. Beat poets used jazz as a backdrop for their prose but their approach was more parallel than integrative and more deferential than symbiotic. While Unearthish invites that comparison, violinist/poet Sarah Bernstein has instead created compositions that are post-Beat holistic works of art. Her muse is more the performance poetry of Hedwig Gorski than Allen Ginsberg's Howl set to a soundtrack of Miles or Trane.

Kevin Harris Project

When the unmistakable musical influences of Thelonious Monk, Danilo Perez, and Charlie Parker intersect with J.S. Bach, Scott Joplin, and the folkloric rhythms of Cuba, could one possibly conceptualize the celebration that occurs at that intersection? Boston-based jazz pianist Kevin Harris plays a distinctive combination of traditional and contemporary music that seeks to explore such a crossroads.

Jazz Writers' Collective and Thinkin' Big

Jazz Writers' Collective and Thinkin' Big are two cooperative bands inspired by the same goal: performing the compositions and arrangements of emerging Jazz writers. Founded by Jazz Composer and Arranger Lorenzo Carrano, the Jazz Writers' Collective has been showcasing the writing of some of the most talented composers in the Boston area since the summer of 2010. The band, that originally only featured three horns plus rhythm section (guitar, piano, bass and drums), eventually expanded its instrumentation to include three saxophones, two trumpets and a trombone.
