October 1 – Brumes and Douglas Detrick
October 15 – Warm Trash and ABSV

Brumes

Brumes is an experimental duo formed by roommates Susana Feliz and Desiree` Rousseau in 2012. Originally Brumes began as a solo looped based ambient project and has evolved into orchestrated atmospheric sounds including keys, guitar, harp and vocals. They will be debuting their third album, Sounding in Fathoms, later this summer. (http://brumes.bandcamp.com)

Douglas Detrick

Douglas Detrick is a Portland, Oregon-based composer, trumpet player, and arts consultant whose work in these diverse areas is distinguished by its quiet thoughtfulness and its embrace of good ideas from unconventional sources. He was awarded the 2011 Chamber Music America New Jazz Works and Presenting Jazz grants for his work with his chamber-jazz quintet Douglas Detrick’s AnyWhen Ensemble, and the commissioned work “The Bright and Rushing World” was premiered at New York’s Jazz Gallery in 2012 and performed throughout the United States. He is currently the Executive Director of the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble, and performs in Oregon as well as touring nationally. (www.douglasdetrick.com)

Warm Trash

Jason (Warm Trash) started his musical career as a solo performer in 2001 with the first live shows of the idiosyncratic routine recording project. It soon became clear that one person’s worth of sound was just not enough. Flash forward 12 years, several pedals, and as many bands(drowning dolphins, chrome wings, cat fancy!, best supporting actress, k-tel, the bedrooms, others…) and luck has brought looping into the picture, and all the sudden, there is much MORE SOUND…and signing and playing drums just takes a little patience, and suddenly, playing live alone seems like a more viable option.

ABSV

Jason Morales is ABSV. Chance Operations. Rhythm and Noise. Musique concrète in Dub. Found Sound, Feedback, Synthesis. Reverb, Filter, Delay. (https://soundcloud.com/absv)

Henry Threadgill Festival at Harlem Stage


From NYTimes.com:

During his introductory remarks at the Harlem Stage Gatehouse on Saturday night, Henry Threadgill succinctly noted that no amount of accolades could mean more to him than the support of a community of musicians engaging with his work. That reasonable assertion helped set the terms for “Very Very Threadgill,” an ambitious two-day festival of his music, and a celebration of his legacy and influence in the American avant-garde.

The IBeam in October


From the IBeam Brooklyn:

Matt Pavolka & The Horns Band Residency – Part 1

Matt Pavolka: Bass & Trombone
Kirk Knuffke: Cornet
Loren Stillman: Alto Sax
Jacob Garchik: Trombone
Mark Ferber: Drums

“Drawing from contemporary strategies as well as the small-group music of Duke Ellington, his (Pavolka’s) compositions accomplish a lot with earthy beauty and shifting momentum. At their best, as on “The Night the Blind Man Dreamt That He Was Blind” (for José Saramago), they suggest a gradually forming picture.” – Nate Chinen, The New York Times

Friday, October 3rd 8:30 PM $15 Suggested Donation

Saturday, October 18th 8:00 PM $15 Suggested Donation

Pitom Duo (8:15 pm)
Yoshie Fruchter (guitar)
Jeremy Brown (violin).

This is a rare chance to hear the more intimate version of guitarist Yoshie Fruchter’s Tzadik Records project Pitom. These guys are both busy touring and recording with fantastic groups like Zion80, Golem, Sandaraa and more, so come enjoy their modern take on original Jewish music.

Bop Kabbalah (9 pm)
Ty Citerman (guitar)
Adam D Gold (drums)
Ben Holmes (trumpet)
Ken Thomson (bass clarinet).

Guitarist Ty Citerman’s latest quartet released an acclaimed CD on Tzadik Records earlier this year which garnered four stars in Downbeat and was hailed by JazzTimes as “…one of the year’s most arresting recordings…wailing with enough majesty to bring down the walls of Jericho.” The band will premiere several new compositions by Citerman.

Russ Lossing’s King Vulture
Wednesday, October 22nd 8:30 PM $15 Suggested Donation

Russ Lossing, piano, compositions
Adam Kolker, tenor sax, bass clarinet
Matt Pavolka, bass

Four deep listening and highly fluid improvisers interpret Lossing’s fascinating and provocative compositions in real time. King Vulture features a new book of previously unrecorded Lossing compositions. Lossing’s brief but intense study with John Cage in the early ’80s and his more recent 12 year association with Paul Motian continue to inform his music at present.

Harris Eisenstadt’s Golden State (8 pm)

In a rare New York performance, before November concerts in Switzerland and Austria, Golden State plays material from a new recording on Songlines, coming spring 2015.

This is a group that will be exploring the interstices of song, free-form composition and group interplay.

Josh Sinton Solo w/ Tomas Fujiwara
Saturday, October 25th 8:00 PM $10 Suggested Donation

Sinton will present his new work in progress “Diction of Inefficiency” for baritone saxophone.

Following this, at 9 pm, he and Tomas Fujiwara will perform selections from Steve Lacy’s Book ‘H’ and ‘W’ of Practicioners; the esteemed musician’s books of Saxophone etudes.
