Richardson / Carter / Jordan / Davis / Gruner / Letman-Burtinovic at RUCMA

From New York’s RUCMA (with a slightly updated lineup):

Start: 2/18/09 – 9:30pm
End: 2/18/09 – 11:00pm
Timezone: Etc/GMT-4

Richardson / Carter / Jordan / Davis / Gruner / Letman-Burtinovic
Wednesday, February 18 @ 9 30PM
Yippie Café: 9 Bleecker Street, near Bowery
General Admission: $10

Demian Richardson (trumpet)
Daniel Carter (reeds)
Andrew Jordan (reeds and percussion) – http://www.maprajna.com
Nicolas Letman-Burtinovic (bass)
Gunter Gruner (drums)
Floyd Davis (poetry)

Over the past three decades Daniel Carter has performed with such musical luminaries as Sun Ra, William Parker, Thurston Moore, MMW (Medeski, Martin, & Wood), Vernon Reid, Sam Rivers, Cecil Taylor, David S. Ware, D.J. Logic, Butch Morris, TEST, One World Ensemble, Saturnalia String Trio, and many others. As a staunch advocate of musical democracy he has been an inspiration for many young musicians. Of his musical collaborations, Carter states, “Most of the groups I’m in are collectives. Sometimes they’ve started out otherwise, and I’ve fought for them to be under a collective name, because that name… some name that would be inspirational or aspirational for the whole group.”

Drummer and composer Gunter Gruner has studied music at the Hochschule fuer Musik und Theater in Hamburg, Germany, the City College of New York and privately with drumming legend, Andrew Cyrille. Since moving to New York in 2005, he has performed with William Parker, Emilio Teubal, Matt Lavelle, Christoph Auer, Shanir Blumenkranz, Andrew Jordan, Daniel Carter, Nicolas Letman-Burtinovic, David Moss, Joerg Hochapfel, Salim Washington, Bato the Gypsy, Yusuke Yamamoto, Rodney Gardiner, Lakecia Benjamin, Kirk Knuffke, Tom Zlabinger, Floyd Davis, Ras Moshe and others. His project “The Invisible Landscape” connects Jazz, free improvisation, contemporary composition and various traditional music from around the world. He received a Mark Brunswick Award for composition in 2005 and was nominated for a Van Lier Fellowship for composition in 2007.
Percussionist and reedman Andrew Jordan has studied and performed in China, Ghana, and Egypt, and brings traditions from each to his music. His studies of world music have led him to the dynamic music of New York free improvisationists, who artfully mix any and all sprititual influences. “This language is one of immense importance to me, and I just try and get to it’s many meanings by keeping these people, and these sounds in my body as long as possible, then letting them seep out into the basement venues to which I’ve been partitioned.”

Demian Richardson is a dynamic trumpeter, the likes of which will blow you out of this place. Calling on all sectors of imagination and tradition, jazz evaporates and only Demian remains. He has performed with Daniel Carter, Federico Ughi, Chris Welcome, Ed Schuller, John Blum, Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, William Parker, Allen Ginsberg.

Nicolas LETMAN-BURTINOVIC attended Paris Beaux Arts until 1994 and work as a professional artist in Europe, when he switched to studying bass for 6 month at the classical conservatory in the 20th arrondissement of Paris. In 1998, Nicolas moved to New York. During the same time, he started traveling to parts of New England and Philadelphia to play with such musicians as legendary saxophonist Archie Shepp, drummers Jay Alan Jackson, Philadelphia-based drummer Bill Roye, Philadelphia-based saxophonist Odean Pope, drummer Alan Nelson and bassist Avery Sharpe. In 2004 he recorded with drummer Matt Wilson on NBJ’s CD. Nicolas’s original compositions, performed by Bomb X and Haleoscene are based on the odd meter and polymeter system developed by Jymie Merritt. The band is a strong trio, bringing in guests which vary the band’s sound and energy. In 2005 he was musical director and bass player for Knewness, a double quintet recording including Archie Shepp, Avery Sharp, Spaceman, Colmore Duncan, Butch Campbel… He is curently active with the New York creative music scene.

In New York City, he studied with William Parker and Mark Dresser. David has continued to perform over the last few years with William Parker, Roy Cambell Jr., Lakesia Benjamen, Daniel Carter, and the band “Search.” In April 2007, “Search” recorded an album at Al Macdowell Studios, which was primarily inspired by several sessions spent with Ornette Coleman. At present, David mainly devotes his time to composing and improvising with the RUCMA/Vision Series communities, Mahout Ensemble, and “Search.”

Sabir Mateen at RUCMA

From RUCMA:

Sabir Mateen
Wednesday, November 12 @ 8:00 pm
Yippie Café: 9 Bleecker Street, near Bowery
General Admission: $10
Students and Seniors: $7

Sabir Mateen (saxophone)
Larry Roland (bass)
Michael Wimberly (drums)

http://www.sabirmateen.com

Famed for his performances in the New York City subway system with the free jazz quartet Test, Sabir Mateen plays a passionate yet nuanced tenor as his main instrument but is equally comfortable on alto sax, clarinet, and flute. Mateen is capable of raw, all-out explosion but frequently displays a wide dynamic range and a subtler side and sometimes leans toward melodic free-bop. A native of Philadelphia, Mateen made his first recordings on the West Coast with pianist Horace Tapscott‘s Pan African People’s Arkestra. In 1989, Mateen relocated to New York with prompting from legendary drummer Sunny Murray and spent the next few years paying his dues on the avant-garde scene. In 1995, he recorded the duo album Getting Away With Murderwith drummer Tom Bruno. Mateen’s other notable side engagements included work with the Raphe Malik Quartet, the trio Tenor Rising, Drums Expanding with Daniel Carter and David Nuss. In 1997, Mateen led his own trio on a session for Eremite, the well-received Divine Mad Love. The following year, he teamed with Sunny Murray for We Are Not at the Opera. His latest release on Nu-Bop Records, Other Places Other Spaces (2008) features Raymond King, Jane Wang, and Ravish Momin.
