RAVISH MOMIN "TRIO TARANA"

Date: Oct 11 Medium: Jazz
Time: doors 7:30 Tix:$18/16 jazz friends/15 students and seniors

Formed in 2003, Trio Tarana is led by Indian-born, New York-based percussionist/composer Ravish Momin (Billy Bang, William Parker). The group primarily utilizes Indian and East Asian rhythms (including Japanese, Afghani, and Indonesian) as the foundation for a new creative musical experience. In a review of Trio Tarana’s acclaimed debut CD entitled Climbing the Banyan Tree (Clean Feed), AllAboutJazz.com proclaims that “Trio Tarana is without precedent in the world of improvised music. A true synthesis of North African, South and East Asian motifs with classical organization and the immediacy of free improvisation has probably not existed prior to Climbing the Banyan Tree.” Tarana’s New York-born violinist Sam Bardfeld is also a featured member of Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions Band, as well as the Jazz Passengers, and he has worked with John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, and John Cale. Oud/saz player Brandon Terzic leads the Howling Makams and has performed with Minu Cinelu

JERRY GRANELLI - THE V-16 PROJECT

Date: Oct 17 Medium: Jazz
Time: doors 7:30 Tix:$20/18 jazz friends/15 students and seniors

San Francisco-raised, Halifax-based percussionist Jerry Granelli pioneered world jazz-fusion and electro-acoustic percussion during the ’60s while also working as a session player with the likes of Ornette Coleman, Mose Allison, Lou Rawls, and Sly Stone. Over the years he’s worked with Charlie Haden, Ralph Towner, Bill Frisell, and Kenny Garrett. The V-16 Project features a two-guitar frontline and diverse approach—jazz improvisation, blues-rock-funk fusion, freeform jamming, sampled soundscapes, and more. The band’s latest CD, Sonic Temple (Songlines), is killer and showcases the superb interplay of guitarists/samplers David Tronzo and Christian Kogel, electric bassist J. A. Granelli (Jerry’s son), and Jerry on drums. Jerry Granelli inspires admiration for his effortless swing and inventiveness and his constant search for new expression. JazzTimes magazine calls him “one of those uncategorizable veteran percussionists who’s done it all.”

Billy Bang Quartet

Date: Oct 18 Medium: concert
Time: :Doors 7:30- Tickets;$20/18 for jazz friends/15 for students and seniors

Billy Bang is one of the greatest violinists in the history of jazz. Over the past 30 years his hard-edged tone, soulful sense of swing, and evocatively expressive style have been heard with a wide range of artists including the blistering funkster Bootsy Collins, harmolodic groovemeister Ronald Shannon Jackson, and the intergalactic Sun Ra. Billy has more than 15 recordings under his own leadership, nearly a dozen more in collaborative efforts, and five more with the String Trio of New York (which he co-founded in 1977 with guitarist James Emery and bassist John Lindberg). His award-winning Justin Time recording Vietnam: The Aftermath, with its drama, lyricism, and considerable rhythmic sense, is a tour de force. Besides leading his stellar quartet featuring Andrew Bemkey piano, Todd Nicholson bass, Newman Taylor Baker drums, Bang currently works with the FAB Trio (Barry Altschul, Joe Fonda).
