The Avant Garde Alive and Kicking with Callithumpians

From The Boston Musical Intelligencer:

The Callithumpian Consort, under the skillful direction of pianist and conductor Stephen Drury, presented a concert entitled, “Hot Butterknife Knight” to a young and packed audience in the Gardner Museum’s series, “Avant Gardner,” on Thursday, January 21. The concert title itself has no particular meaning that I could determine, but rather seems to be a handle to signify the collaboration of three young composers, Lei Liang, Adam Roberts, and Nicholas Vines, all of whom have recent Ph.D. degrees in composition from Harvard University. Indeed the second work on the program, “Triplex mobilis” (2009) was written by all three at the suggestion of Drury, and first performed on this occasion.

Innova Recordings Profiled

From All About Jazz:

Minnesota’s Innova Records is one of the more prolific and longer-standing independent labels working in the US. An extension of the St. Paul-based American Composers Forum, Innova has been issuing a healthy number of discs in a surprising array of styles since 1982. Formal and quirky composed works sit alongside extended improv and teenager radio dramas in the label’s catalogue of over 700 titles. But as with any healthy eclecticism, it isn’t the point but a byproduct of people following their instincts.

Ingrid Laubrock – Saxophone Is Her Only Constant

From NYTimes.com:

For the last several years Ms. Laubrock has been visiting the United States now and then to study and perform, and on Wednesday night at the Cornelia Street Café in Greenwich Village she led a New York-based quartet — Mary Halvorson on guitar, John Hébert on bass, Tom Rainey on drums — with Kris Davis on piano occasionally as a fifth member. It was her own composed music, but sometimes as free as it could get within parameters.
