Morton Feldman

From MLive.com:

There was a full house Friday night for the “Birth of the Avant-Garde,” a Fontana Chamber Arts concert at the Epic Center’s Wellspring Theatre. The concert featured Bosnian born-and-trained pianist Pedja Muzijevic, who now lives in New York….Muzijevic’s program focused mainly on those who were precursors and founders of 20th-century modernism, with a strong American cohort, including Morton Feldman, Henry Cowell, Conlon Nancarrow and especially John Cage.

Meredith Monk at Lincoln Center


From NYTimes.com:

Ms. Monk, a singer, composer, dancer, choreographer, director and filmmaker, has been creating multidisciplinary works since the 1960s, when she developed her distinctive form of singing. Cries, clucks and noises that might evoke exotic birdcalls unfold over humming and chanting.

Henry Threadgill makes name for himself among jazz's elite


Henry Threadgill
Cover of Henry Threadgill

From PopMatters:

One of the true visionaries of jazz, composer-saxophonist-flutist Henry Threadgill occupies a zone of his own. He’s not exactly famous — if asked to name an important living jazz artist, most people would more likely cite Wynton Marsalis. Yet Threadgill isn’t quite obscure, having recorded some of the most challengingly imaginative jazz albums of the last 40 years — some of it, improbably, for major labels.

ONCE concerts blend the '60s and today


Roger Reynolds
Cover of Roger Reynolds

From the Detroit Free Press, some shows coming up next week in Ann Arbor:

In the most tantalizing stroke, the festival’s founding composers Robert Ashley, Gordon Mumma, Roger Reynolds and Donald Scavarda — the late George Cacioppo was a fifth key conspirator — will reunite for concerts that examine their achievement from two perspectives: The first program, ONCE THEN, assembles their works from the early ’60s, while the second program, ONCE NOW, offers recent pieces.

Bassist Michael Formanek at Jazz Standard


Michael Formanek
Cover of Michael Formanek

From NYTimes.com:

Michael Formanek played the first notes at the Jazz Standard on Wednesday night, his double bass clamped in a bear hug. The notes came fast and hit squarely, with articulate force. Mr. Formanek was flanked by several partners — the alto saxophonist Tim Berne, the pianist Craig Taborn, the drummer Gerald Cleaver — but for the moment it was just his roomy, rubbery tone filling the air, preceding the formation of a theme.

This month Mr. Formanek released “The Rub and Spare Change” (ECM), his first album in more than a decade, with these same deep-focus musicians. The album is stern business, but also graceful in its subversions, often even sumptuous. Much the same was true of Wednesday’s first set.
