Neil Kosaly-Meyer: Gradus…
Sat. July 14, 8:00 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

In the 17th year of this piano composition in perpetual progress, the pitch palette has begun to become rich. This performance might include A’s, E’s, C#’s, G’s or B’s. Though the selection of pitches used is precise and severe, the actual playing is entirely improvised, responding attentively to the inward and outward requirements of the moment, with an ear to the sounds of the environment.

WED. 7/18 – Gratitude Trio with Dawn Clement (piano, voice), Chuck Deardorf (bass), Matt Wilson (drums)

THU. 7/19 – Earshot Jazz presents Jazz: the Second Century, New Series One + Scrambler

FRI. 7/20 – Project Metamorphosis is Daniel McManus playing solo 8-string guitar with loops and effects combining composition and structured improvisation
