MUSIC FOR AN IMAGINARY BAND
“[A] commanding avant-jazz ensemble” Time Out New York

Gordon Beeferman’s MUSIC FOR AN IMAGINARY BAND performs at the Konceptions jazz series at Korzo. MUSIC FOR AN IMAGINARY BAND, led by composer-pianist Beeferman, is a (real) septet comprised of some of New York’s most uniquely creative musicians. The band explores the territory where classical ‘new-music,’ jazz and free improvisation intersect. Beeferman’s compositions range from the gnarly to the operatic, and are both incredibly detailed and very free; the band’s intensive improvisational explorations are tethered to highly structured frameworks.

Look & Listen Festival at Chelsea Art Museum

From NYTimes.com:

The wonderfully eclectic Look & Listen Festival opened on Thursday evening with a program that prized vigor and muscularity over intricacy and nuance: a victory lap, of sorts, in celebration of the festival’s 10th anniversary. The point of Look & Listen, as its title suggests, is to bring together music and visual arts, and this year the concerts are in the large, resonant gallery of the Chelsea Art Museum, where an exhibition of colorful abstracts by the painter Jean Miotte surrounds the musicians and audience.
