Aum Fidelity Show in NY

From Aum Fidelity:

AUM Fidelity presents two world-renowned jazz masters and our extraordinarily gifted latest signing in a one-night-only showcase at the Abrons Arts Center main performance space – a beautiful, intimate and mighty comfortable 300+ seat theater in the heart of the Lower East Side of Manhattan. We are very excited about this rare AUM live production and aim to sell the house out; we hope that you will be able to join us for this night of sure-to-be profoundly beautiful and transformative music.

DAVID S. WARE
Eminent saxophonist David S. Ware makes his triumphant return to the stage following his very successful kidney transplant in May. His latest studio recording, Shakti, was released to great acclaim in January. This year of 2009 also marks Ware’s 50th year of playing saxophone, having begun his remarkable journey into music very early on. He will be marking this doubly auspicious occasion by presenting a very special solo performance on tenor and two less well known members of the saxophone family: the saxello and the stritch. He will have a lot .to say though his horns on this night, people!

9:00pm……
DARIUS JONES TRIO
Darius Jones is an extraordinarily gifted young alto saxophonist & composer who has made great beauty of his time since arriving in NYC in 2005 from his native Virginia, playing with musicians from a wide variety of disciplines, and adding gravitas to all groups concerned. On this night, he will be celebrating the October 13 release of his debut album as a leader, Man’ish Boy (A Raw & Beautiful Thing). The performance will feature Darius Jones: alto sax, Cooper-Moore: piano & diddley-bo & Jason Nazary: drums.

From Syracuse’s Metropolis Underground:

Kevin Norton’s Counterpoint will be here on 2/21 @ 8pm. Kevin always puts on a great show and should not be missed.

The following night we will have four experimental acts: Beach Fuzz, Century Plants, Dead Friends and American Sphinx.

Updates:

April 17th – Mountains, The Human and TBA

Mountains is Brendon Anderegg and Koen Holtkamp, friends since their middle school days. The duo were brought together by mutual artistic and musical interests, and both ended up at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. It was during this time that they began exchanging musical ideas and compositions which led to them founding the Apestaartje label in 1999. As their collaborations and individual projects blossomed, they decided to create Mountains as a vehicle for live performance. A love of sculpting sound in front of an audience is at the heart of Mountains. The group has 3 albums: their first self-titled release and second album Sewn were both on Apestaartje; the third, Choral, on Thrill Jockey. Mountains is often compared to artists such as Brian Eno and Fennesz, citing their extended melodies and their unique broad guitar work. Mountains seamlessly blend pastoral electronic sounds with field recordings and a plethora of acoustic instruments. The resulting soundscapes are broad in scope and rich in detail. The effect is incredibly sublime and hypnotic as the sounds slowly wrap themselves around each other and alter themselves in the mind of the listener. Choral, their third album, is a uniquely soothing and addicting listening experience and an aural crazy quilt: warm and inviting with many details to discover and explore.

I’ll add more info as it comes my way.

We’ve also added Tom Carter and Sabir Mateen to the Summer schedule.
