Jeremy Denk’s Ives, With Head, Heart and Humor

Mr. Denk argues that the Ives sonatas, composed early in the 20th century, are mistakenly categorized as avant-garde works rather than “epic Romantic sonatas with Lisztian thematic transformations.” To the casual listener, the music that Mr. Denk describes in the CD booklet as “brilliant, inventive, tender, edgy, wild, original, witty, haunting” can certainly sound avant-garde. Ives, who made his living in the insurance business, incorporated jazz, riffs on Beethoven and American hymns, marches and folk songs into his daringly experimental piano sonatas, rich in polytonality, thematic layering and rhythmic complexity.

Angel City Jazz Fest to Showcase Six Nights of Performances

From LAist:

The festival kicks off tonight at REDCAT with a much anticipated performance by bassist Henry Grimes and a formidable combo including trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith, Vinny Golia, and LA-based vocalist Dwight Trible. Grimes made a name for himself with the likes of Sonny Rollins, Charles Mingus, and free jazz pioneers Albert Ayler, Archie Shepp, and Cecil Taylor decades ago, before vanishing from the scene in 1967 and roughing it for the next three decades in downtown LA.
