One last shot at a CM5 concert and intensive summer improvisation fun before fall and winter beset us, folks. After five diverse and successful 2012 concerts (we saw them all, we get to judge) we’ve saved our most august and experienced crew for last. When a series of WPRK-FM concerts metamorphosed into the Civic Minded 5, a list of wannado artists of all stripes and varying degrees of obscuro-music fame emerged. On the more obscuro side was English pianist Veryan Weston; Cecil Taylor-ish pointillism fluidly merged with modern European classicalism. A few CM5ers have witnessed the diversity inherent in Trevor Watts’ delivery as a wind player in the boldly experimental London Jazz Composers Orchestra and the leader of his lilting, jazz-fused, African percussion-arrayed Moire Music Drum Orchestra. While an English duo composed of saxophone and piano doesn’t immediately bring finger-snapping, suburban Bohemianism to Central Floridians, we offer a far deeper affair. Watts and Weston remind us of the heartening emotionalism fused with the Cinemascope widening of the possibilities that emboldened the inhabitants of the 1960’s artist. Fast-forward to 2012, adding on decades of experiential episodes, Trevor Watts and Veryan Weston offer both their past and present.
