Miguel Frasconi is a unique and very thoughtful musician. His musical roots run deep in the experimental tradition of New York City and his instrument of choice, glass, is a clear reflection of that. After spending many years living on the West Coast, Miguel returned to New York ten years ago to care for a sick parent and to put down some new musical roots. The last few years have been very challenging for him and after a lot personal hardship, he is on the verge of releasing some new and exciting music. This is a great talk that goes to some very touching and personal places.
It’s partly about classical music coexisting with, and cross-referencing, so-called popular music, and yes, those are impoverished and misleading terms. I saw and heard over the weekend some loud, aggressive, viscid music that happened to be notated: the Romanian composer Iancu Dumitrescu’s “South Pole,” played by Stephen O’Malley and Oren Ambarchi on laptops and electric guitars. I also saw some non-notated music that was pretty streamlined and orderly: for instance, Mark McGuire’s twinkly, benevolent, yoga-time instrumentals for guitar and electronics.

Ginny’s Supper Club at Red Rooster Harlem, 310 Lenox Ave (between 125th & 126th streets) Harlem, NY
April 23, 2014, 7:30 PM and 9:30 PM
Join the Eco-Music Big Band in a tribute to its founder, Fred Ho – one of a kind revolutionary composer, writer, producer, political activist, and the “best baritone saxophonist of all time” (The New Yorker) whose awards and distinctions include becoming the youngest person to receive the Duke Ellington Distinguished Artist Lifetime Achievement Award, a Harvard Arts Medal, and a Guggenheim Fellowship, among others. Fred Ho is in hospice, in the ﬁnaltime of his seven-year battle with stage 4B metastatic cancer. This tribute program will honor Fred’s legacy, including his last big band work, The Grace of the Guerilla, My Love, the music of Cal Massey, and new works by Fred Ho’s students, Ben Barson and Marie Incontrera.
The Eco-Music Big Band is a 16-piece professional free jazz political big band that spans many generations and includes some of the nation’s most acclaimed jazz musicians, including trumpeter Winston Byrd (Paquito D’ Rivera, Clark Terry), bass trombonist David Taylor (Gil Evans, New York Philharmonic), saxophonist Jay Rodriguez (Ornette Coleman, Craig Harris), Zack O’Farrill and Adam O’Farrill (Arturo O’Farrill, Fred Ho) and Fred Ho’s saxophone protege Ben Barson (Arturo O’Farrill, Craig Harris).
