Amazon.com has launched Smile, a way a way for you to fund a charitable organization. Amazon will donate a portion of the

price of your purchases to your favorite charitable organization. A number of charities have signed up and I have chosen Portland’s Creative Music Guild. Hopefully other creative music organizations will use the program as well.

Francois Carrier has two new releases out, Russian Concerts 1 and 2, with Carrier, Michel Lambert, and Alexey Lapin. Volume 2, for example, features 8 pieces Recorded live in Moscow at Nikitskaya Jewish Cultural Center (JCC) on April 28 and in St. Petersburg at ESG-21 (Experimental Sound Gallery) on April 29 and JFC Jazz Club on April 30, 2013.

Avant-rock gurus Mr. Bungle are releasing their catalog on vinyl.

Robert D. Bielecki has started a foundation, and some of his first grants have gone to Matthew Shipp, Fred Van Hove, and Downtown Music.

The 35th Festival for Free & Improvised Music is reviewed.

George Crumb’s Ancient Voices for Children was performed at the BAM.

Matana Roberts Reveals New Material for Coin Coin at 61 Local, Sep 11, 2014


From Jazz Right Now:

Alto saxophonist and storyteller Matana Roberts played the latest installment of Coin Coin last night at 61 Local. This one, a solo set, is intended as one of the bookends to an ambitious 12-part project that weaves together stories, history, and myths passed down in Roberts’ own family. This is an artist with a rare aesthetic vision, able to draw together ideas, melodies, phrases, stories, and images together in a kaleidoscopic work of sight and sound.
