Sep-20-17 06:00 PM Bing & Ruth w/ Arone Dyer's Dronechoir 6pm doors | 8pm show | 18+ Bing & Ruth In 2006, David Moore started Bing & Ruth as a way to bring his compositions to an audience beyond academia. A pianist from Kansas, studying at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York’s Greenwich Village, Moore was writing the sort of music he wanted to hear: minimalist ensemble music with a certain filmic sensitivity, one that prioritized grace and texture over the style’s once-radical subtraction. Following the seasoned history of minimalist heroes at the New School like John Cage and Steve Reich—both of whom taught at the institution throughout the 1950s and ‘60s—Moore’s compositions looked past the studied repetition of the style’s most prominent forerunners towards a form built on feeling, a mobilization of time-honored shapes, now angled outward towards a greater totalizing sublime. The piece’s mark the culmination of Moore’s piano studies, pairing tender lines that emphasize the instrument’s more percussive qualities with running woodwinds, warbling tape delays, and splattered upright bass lines that stare out with a wide-eyed transcendence. After a short hiatus, spent focused on other projects, Moore returned to Bing & Ruth in 2010 with City Lake. The ensemble had grown to eleven members, making touring and rehearsals increasingly difficult to coordinate, especially given the current landscape of classical music, which can make finding patronage outside of a few prodigious, metropolitan institutions a task that often seems insurmountable. Instead he sold self-released vinyl from his basement and at their shows around New York. As Moore continued, despite constant setbacks and frustrations, in his early sketches of new material, it seemed that the project would soon fade into obscurity. Around this time, Moore was put in touch with the experimental label RVNG INTL. and the pair worked together on two full-length LPs over the coming years. Of these albums, 2014’s Tomorrow Was the Golden Age parsed the group’s eleven members to a seven-person ensemble that distilled minimalism’s most emotive moments down to artful melodies with a heavy, heartbreaking affect. The album brought the band a newfound acclaim as it made waves around the underground community, reviving interest in the meditative pop traditions of Philip Glass and Harold Budd, stretching so-called “classical” music to new limits, and proving that there was in fact a committed audience for this sort of thoughtful contemporary composition. The album was even named “one of the finest leftfield releases of the year” by Pitchfork and earned similar praise from The Quietus and Resident Advisor. Now almost two years later, No Home of the Mind finds Moore returning to the piano a heavier, more driven feeling. Composed on seventeen pianos across North America and Europe over numerous sessions, tours, and travel, the pieces channel the idiosyncrasies and respective limitations of each instrument into inspiration. “For me I feel like different pianos all have their own personalities,” Moore says, “So in writing these new songs, I tried to embrace the personalities of the pianos I was spending time with.” These self-contained piano lines soon grew into accompaniment and independent parts as the pieces were arranged for tight five-person ensemble pieces. Recorded in just two days at a repurposed church in Hudson, NY, in the fewest takes possible, an attempt to capture the immediacy of classic session-style musicianship, where one-take recordings were a standard to keep costs down. “We had everything rehearsed, worked out and ready to go before we ever stepped in front of a microphone so when we did, it was like instinct coming back into play,” he noted. After over a year of heartfelt composition, No Home of the Mind finds a newfound confidence, a refinement of color and cadence that pulls together a year’s worth of studied feeling into an album that looks outward with fresh-faced, affective new forms. Arone Dyer's Dronechoir Arone Dyer is a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, composer and one half of Brooklyn-born-project Buke and Gase, a genre-defying musical exploration of limits and device. Since February 2015 she has been examining dis/comfort within performance through a series of long-durational choral pieces, aptly titled Dronechoir, which was initiated into being during the first 24-hr Dronefest of Basilica Hudson, and has since metamorphosed for the following 24-hr Dronefest of Basilica 2016, and as its own entity at CR10. How to Melt the Individual Among Peers.

Sep-20-17 10:00 PM Avishai Cohen Quartet at (le) poisson rouge Avishai Cohen Quartet at (le) poisson rouge 10:00pm doors | 10:30pm show | 18+ $20 advance, $25 day of show A year after his impressionistic, award winning and critically-lauded ECM debut Into The Silence, Avishai Cohen’s Cross My Palm With Silver(May 5th, 2017) introduces a program of new pieces which put the focus on the ensemble, on teamwork, with an exceptional quartet featuring Yonathan Avishai (piano), Barak Mori (bass) and Nasheet Waits (drums). The adroit interplay among the musicians allows Avishai Cohen to soar, making it clear why the pure-toned trumpeter is one of the most talked-about jazz musicians on the contemporary scene. In 2016 alone, Cohen was named “Best Foreign Artist” by Jazz Magazine France, while Into the Silence was awarded “Best Album of the Year” by TSF Jazz and Academie du Jazz, and in the top 20 albums of the year by JazzTimes. For four years running, Cohen has been voted a Rising Star-Trumpet in the Down Beat Critics Poll. Along with leading his quartet, the trumpeter has led Triveni (a trio with Omer Avital and Nasheet Waits) for over a decade, was a member of the prestigious SF Jazz Collective for six years, and has been a featured soloist in a number of special ensembles – most recently in “Jazz 100” alongside Danilo Perez, Lizz Wright, Chris Potter and Wycliffe Gordon. He also records and tours the world with The 3 Cohens Sextet, the hit family band with his sister, clarinetist-saxophonist Anat, and brother, saxophonist Yuval. Declared All About Jazz: “To the ranks of the Heaths of Philadelphia, the Joneses of Detroit and the Marsalises of New Orleans, fans can now add the 3 Cohens of Tel Aviv.” The trumpeter began performing in public in 1988 at age 10, playing his first solos with a big band and eventually touring with the Young Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra to perform under the likes of maestros Zubin Mehta, Kurt Masur and Kent Nagano. Having worked with Israeli folk and pop artists in his native country and appeared on television early on, Cohen arrived as an experienced professional musician when he took up a full scholarship at Berklee College of Music in Boston. In 1997, the young musician established an international reputation by placing third in the Thelonious Monk Jazz Trumpet Competition. Avishai came of age as a jazz player as part of the fertile scene at the club Smalls in New York’s West Village. Cohen first recorded for ECM as part of saxophonist Mark Turner’s quartet on Lathe of Heaven, released in September 2014. The trumpeter has performed at the Village Vanguard and beyond with Turner, as well as widely in a band led by pianist Kenny Werner. Cohen has played often in the Mingus Big Band and Mingus Dynasty ensemble, and he has lent his horn to recordings by Anat Cohen, Yuval Cohen and keyboardist Jason Lindner, along with collaborating on stage with French-Israeli pop singer Keren Ann, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Indian Tabla Master Zakir Hussain. In addition to performing, Cohen was named the Artistic Director of the International Jerusalem Festival in 2015. As with Into The Silence, Cross My Palm With Silver was produced by Manfred Eicher at Studios La Buissonne in the south of France. It was released on the eve of a major European tour, with concerts in France, Italy, Spain, Luxembourg, Great Britain, Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands, which will be followed by a World Wide Tour in the Fall of 2017.

Sep-21-17 06:30 PM William Parker's In Order to Survive: "Criminals in the White House" at (le) poisson rouge William Parker's In Order to Survive: "Criminals in the White House" at (le) poisson rouge featuring: Cooper-Moore (piano, recipient of 2017 LifeTime Achievement), Rob Brown (sax), Hamid Drake (drums), William Parker (bass, double reeds) 6:30 pm doors | 7:30 pm show | 18+ Table Seating: $20 advance, $25 day of show | Standing Room: $15 advance, $20 day of show The music of 'In Order To Survive' is deeply rooted in the concept of vision. In this music I hear the history, the mystery and the now, all existing and vanishing at the same time. Everything is kept together by the undertow of this luminous lyricism that is ever present. The main force in playing this music is having the ability to feel the pain of all who suffer. To feel it as if it were happening to us; not resting until it ceases to be. Feeling for others and believing that the only way to survive is through love of God (Self) . Making sure that each sound that comes from your instrument is directed and filled with the strongest truth that exists. -William Parker  William Parker (bass, double reeds, nGoni) William Parker is the premier freejazz bassist/multi-instrumentalist, composer, improviser, author, educator and influencer.  He has been called “one of the most inventive bassists/leaders since [Charles] Mingus,” and “the creative heir to Jimmy Garrison and Paul Chambers...directly influenced by ‘60s avant-gardists like Sirone, Henry Grimes and Alan Silva.” The Village Voice called him, “the most consistently brilliant free jazz bassist of all time” and Time Out New York named him one of the “50 Greatest New York Musicians of All Time.” Parker’s current active bands include the large-band Little Huey Creative Orchestra, the Raining on the Moon Sextet, the In Order to Survive Quartet, Stan’s Hat Flapping in the Wind, the Cosmic Mountain Quintet with Hamid Drake, Kidd Jordan, and Cooper-Moore, as well as a deep and ongoing solo bass study. His music has been released by AUM Fidelity, RogueArt and his own Centering Records, among many others. He has recorded over 150 albums, published six books, and taught and mentored hundreds of young musicians and artists. He has been a key figure in the New York and European creative music scenes since the 1970s, and has worked all over the world.  He was an important member of the Cecil Taylor Unit, as well as with Peter Brotzmann, Milford Graves, Billy Bang, Roy Campbell and David S. Ware, among many others. William Parker works all over the world but he always returns to New York’s Lower East Side, where he has lived since 1975. Hamid Drake (drums) By the close of the 1990s, Hamid Drake was widely regarded as one of the most important percussionists in improvised music. Incorporating Afro-Cuban, Indian, and African percussion instruments and influence, in addition to using the standard trap set, Drake has collaborated extensively with top free jazz improvisers Don Cherry, Peter Brotzmann, Fred Anderson, Kidd Jordan and Ken Vandermark, among others. Drake was born in Monroe, LA, in 1955, and later moved to Chicago with his family. He ended up taking drum lessons with Fred Anderson's son, eventually taking over the son's role as percussionist in Anderson's group. As a result, Fred Anderson also introduced Drake to George Lewis and other AACM members. Drake also has performed world music; by the late '70s, he was a member of Foday Muso Suso's Mandingo Griot Society, and has played reggae. Drake has been a member of the Latin jazz band Night on Earth, the Georg Graewe Quartet, the DKV Trio, Peter Brotzmann's Chicago Octet/Tentet, and Liof Munimula, the oldest free improvising ensemble in Chicago. Drake has also worked with trumpeter Don Cherry, Pharoah Sanders, Fred Anderson, Mahmoud Gania, and has performed a solstice celebration with fellow Chicago percussionist Michael Zerang semiannually since 1991. Hamid Drake recorded material is best represented on Chicago's Okkadisk label. Hamid Drakes musical relationship with William Parker began in 2000 with the release of O’Neals Porch and the Duo recording Piercing the Veil. together they are The most exceptional rhythm sections in Jazz today. Cooper-Moore (piano) Born in segregated Virginia, Cooper-Moore came of age as a musician and active member of the civil rights and peace movements. He became a pivotal member of the Free Jazz movement beginning with the collective Apogee with David S. Ware.  He lived and performed at the Jazz Loft at 501 Canal Street. Cooper-Moore's primary instrument is the piano, though the many instruments he has designed and built have become part of his trademark. He is an important educator, inspiring generations of young artists through Head Start and other music programs around the world. Over the years he has also sought to mentor young musicians to pass forward the music that he feels so strongly about. His contributions to music come from the total commitment that he makes to every sound, tone, and rhythm that comes through him into the instrument at hand. The quality of his approach to music is unique and based in his roots in the South. Because of his talent, he was chosen by his community to develop and play the music that had come to him from his background and was informed by the ongoing struggle for Civil Rights as he came of age. His music encompasses all of this and more. As with every genius, his music is the expression of the magic of Sound passing through. Cooper-Moore has written and performed for playwrights such as Rita Dove and Laurie Carlos, and choreographers Joan Miller, Rod Rogers, Marlies Yearby, and Judith Jackson. He has led his own bands such as Triptych Myth and Digital Primitives. He has been a central figure in William Parker’s In Order to Survive and Gerald Cleaver’s Black Host. Rob Brown (Saxphone) Rob Brown was born and raised in Hampton VA. At a young age, he was introduced to the music of Charlie Parker and Eric Dolphy and began performing with traveling jazz-blues bands by age 16. Rob moved to New York in 1984 and established the musical relationships that came to define his career : pianist Matthew Shipp whom he met in Boston in 1982  and in 1984 he met William Parker. In 1989 they recorded a cd for Silkheart and Rob’s trio that included Denis Charles. Rob quickly became an important member of William Parker’s many ensembles in a relationship that has continued for almost 30 years, touring Europe and the US and recording at least 20 albums. The most prolific and steadily working of those groups is Parker’s quartets and quintets. Rob is also a key member of William Parker’s Little Huey Creative Music Orchestra since its inception in the early 1990’s. Rob and drummer Whit Dickey started playing together in the late eighties which led to a trio with guitarist Joe Morris and others. Recent collaborators include cellist Daniel Levin, Kenny Warren, Satoshi Takeshi, and Juan P Carletti. In the 2011 Rob toured Europe with the recently deceased revolutionary poet with Amiri Baraka. Rob Brown is a 2001 CalArts/Alpert/ Ucross Residency Prize winner and has received many Meet The Composer Fund grants. In 2006 Rob was awarded a Chamber Music America New Works grant. Rob Brown is a founding Vision Core Artist which not only exemplifies Vision’s aesthetics but is also tasked with the responsibility to maintain the idéals and aesthetics that has made Vision Great and long lasting.

Recently she’s begun producing and writing for other artists and is in the middle of recording her 5th album as JAPW.  Nona Hendryx, Mamfunk one-third of the pop/soul group Labelle with Patti LaBelle and Sarah Dash. In 1976, Hendryx released her self-titled debut record, which was an amazingly strong amalgam of soul and hard rock. Hendryx has released several solo recordings, toured extensively around the world. Recent work- LaBelle Back to Now, Terri Lynne Carrington's Mosaic Project album, Mutatis Mutandis, for Ani DiFranco's Righteous Babe label A certified techie, Nona loves all things technical and Benoit Maurbry built a version of his ‘audio tutu’ e.g. wearable art/sound system, which she has worn in performances in art galleries in London, NY, L.A, Hong Kong & Berlin. Nona's building a 2nd career as a Visual Artists, exhibiting her Mixed Medium and Assemblage art work since 2013. Nona is an Ambassador for Artistry in Education at Berklee College of Music in Boston.

We had to bring her back. “ Mal Devisa is Carr’s solo moniker. She grew up in the Bronx and, at five, moved to the college town of Amherst, Mass. Carr seems to have absorbed the intellectual rigor that is the oxygen of such a place—the societal critique in her songs and interviews is razor sharp—as well as its heart. (“I’m definitely a small town person,” Carr once said. “When I go to the city I’m like, ‘Why is no one returning my smile?’ It’s kind of sad.”) At 12, Carr attended a Girls Rock Camp lead by a former member of the ’70s outfit Fanny and started a funk band called Who’da Funk It; the group lasted until Carr was 17, and a year later, in 2014, she released her first music as Mal Devisa. Her debut EP included a cover of Feist’s “Honey Honey” as well as a remarkably classic-sounding blues ballad called “Daisy,” which appears here.” – Pitchfork Toshi Reagon is a musical powerhouse.  Described by The New Yorker as “a one-woman celebration of all that’s dynamic, progressive and uplifting in American music,” Reagon began her career at the age of 17 as a singer, songwriter and guitarist.
