Atlantic Center For The Arts, Timucua Arts Foundation and Civic Minded 5 present Marilyn Crispell solo and with the ACA Ensemble
Timucua white house 2000 S. Summerlin St., Orlando
7:30 pm concert, free admission, all ages welcome

We’re very proud to present an evening of knowns and unknowns from Marilyn Crispell.The pianist has a career based on an adventurous sense of discovery and an honest reaction to the temperament of experience as she continues to compose, perform and record. Free of infelicitous cul-de-sacs, Crispell’s work continues to evolve with solid iterations on existing language and dynamics. With that stated, lining up and reviewing Crispell’s recorded work would show more than one artist to the initiated.

A very special double show, giving you two opportunities to see these three musical luminaries.

Their debut CD ‘The Veil’ is from a live recording at The Stone in New York City. Combining elements of avant-garde jazz, skronk rock, heavy metal, and other uncategorizable influences, BB&C is a collaboration between three international jazz pioneers.

Mopomoso will be hosting an evening of intimate and engaging free improvisations from a range of very different and highly skilled musicians including three sets of trios: Trio Rewind playing Columbian Tiplé, Wire Assembly trio with all things strings and electric, and Alice Eldridge (cello), Satoko Fukuda (violin) and John Russell (guitar) performing music of uncompromising subtleness and beauty.

MON 17 FEB • 20.00 • £8 • MD
Italian firebrand saxophonist Daniele Martini joins forces with two top notch British improvisers to create this trio exploring wide-ranging improvisation, rich textual invention, and dynamics with Dominic Lash (double bass) and Mark Sanders (drums).

Gary Lucas Goes To The Movies

From Burning Ambulance:

Yes, Gary Lucas was in The Magic Band; although, to go by his most recent solo effort and debut for the Brooklyn-based Northern Spy label, Cinefantastique (buy it from Amazon), you’d hardly guess as much. Indeed, it’s only during his live rendition of the theme from Vertigo—some halfway through this lengthy but varied collection of cover songs from the movies—that he lets rip with the kind of guitar wig-outs with which he made his name as a member of Captain Beefheart‘s troupe in the early 1980s.


Jazz Listings From The New York Times

Matt Bauder and Day in Pictures (Wednesday) On “Nightshades,” his soulful new album, the tenor saxophonist Matt Bauder emulates an ideal of midcentury jazz modernism, without abandoning an exploratory air. His partners, in the group he calls Day in Pictures, are the trumpeter Nate Wooley, the pianist Kris Davis, the bassist Jason Ajemian and the drummer Tomas Fujiwara. At 8:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village,, 212-989-9319; $10 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)

Tomas Fujiwara & the Hook Up (Saturday) A drummer working along jazz’s experimental fringe, Mr. Fujiwara favors a mode of playing that’s forward-leaning but rarely blunt or aggressive, and never random. He’s preparing to record his third album with this smart band, which features the trumpeter Jonathan Finlayson, the saxophonist Brian Settles, the guitarist Mary Halvorson and the bassist Michael Formanek. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, 212-989-9319,; $10 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)

Dave Holland’s Prism (Sunday) The bassist-bandleader Dave Holland digs back into knockabout jazz-funk mode with “Prism,” his potent most recent album, which features a famous old colleague, the guitarist Kevin Eubanks, along with the brilliant pianist Craig Taborn and the indomitable drummer Eric Harland. At 8 p.m., Highline Ballroom, 431 West 16th Street, Chelsea, 212-414-5994,; $29.50 in advance, $35 day of show; $55 for V.I.P. seating; $10 minimum per person at tables. (Chinen)

William Hooker: ‘Body and Soul’ (Thursday) Mr. Hooker, a drummer aligned with the combative free-jazz lineage, performs a live accompaniment to the 1925 Oscar Micheaux film “Body and Soul,” which introduced Paul Robeson to the screen. His musical partners will include the saxophonist Ras Moshe and the violinist Skye Steele. At 7:30 p.m., David Rubinstein Atrium, Lincoln Center, Broadway, between 62nd and 63rd Streets,; free. (Chinen)

Paradoxical Frog (Saturday) “Union,” released in 2012, was a fitting title for the second album by this fearless experimental trio, which interrogates compositions by all three members — the pianist Kris Davis, the saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock and the drummer Tyshawn Sorey. The ensemble has not performed in almost a year, but should have no problem reconnecting during this concert, part of the Sound It Out series. At 8 p.m., Greenwich House Music School, 46 Barrow Street, West Village, 212-242-4770,; $15, $12 for students. (Chinen)
