Brad Farberman’s Music for Ears
Brad Farberman is a tireless performer and organizer on the innovative music scene in New York. Formative experiences like seeing Sunny Murray play, meeting Evan Parker in London and hanging out at Tonic have lead Farberman to a life in music from which, of course, there is no escape. Following some time in Massachusetts under the tutelage of Nick McBride, Glenn Siegel and the flautist Margo Edwards, Farberman relocated to New York City in 2007. As a guitarist, he has performed with Daniel Carter, Sabir Mateen, Steve Dalachinsky, Jason Kao Hwang‘s Spontaneous River and William Parker’s Introscopic Orchestra. He is a founding member of Knucklebean, helped book the 2008 RUCMA series, and curates the monthly This Is Our Music series. He holds a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Massachusetts, and is in pursuit of his M.A. in Jazz History and Research from Rutgers University in Newark, NJ.

Cristian Amigo & Kingdom of Jones
Guitarist-composer Cristian Amigo straddles the contemporary-classical, improv and rock worlds; no wonder he calls his Kingdom of Jones a “new music jam-band.” During any given performance, Messiaen grapples with Led Zeppelin while Perez Prado teaches Stravinsky to mambo.
