The Spoken Word Project I have always been interested in the joining of other disciplines with my original compositions. I have utilized artists (Barnett Newman, Anne Dovlen), spoken word (Joan Egeland-Scott, Eldrid Lunden), film (La Jetee) and Dance. Presented this evening are my first two extended works using spoken word, Restless Motion and La Jetee. Each composed in 2013 with Restless Motion having been premiered at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, while tonight will be the premier performance of La Jetee. When the idea of using poetry as part of a suite my search led me to a totally unexpected place. Joan Egeland-Scott was my mother-in-law and this extraordinary women played the piano, as well as writing volumes of original poetry. When she passed away, I read a number of her books and was touched by Restless Motion, Poems of Block Island. Joan had lived much of her life on Block Island and these poems were written at a time when she was preparing to leave the island. They speak of her love of nature, of everyday activities and objects, of being alone and looking to the inevitable day when she would leave the island for good. Four of her poems are highlighted in the spoken word suite Restless Motion.

Can techno-bebop-metal-fired instrumentals co-exist with vocal tunes inspired by the madcap geniuses of ‘60s pop?

Top it off with acoustic ballads where smiley melodies camouflage bitter lyricism about broken love, often rendered in off-beat tunings, and you sorta begin to complete the recipe. They can and do on “Sketches of Spam,” the 16-track, 69-minute, genre-surfing debut release from Spaghetti Eastern Music (Bad Egg Records, 30003), the solo project of New York-based guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Sal Cataldi.

Although not set on a career in music he was nonetheless engrossed in the music of the great jazz trumpeters, Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, to name a few.

While the trio is rooted in jazz, we try to stay as open minded as possible. Songs are influenced by hiphop, funk, dub reggae, Latin, world music, and anything else the band has been listening to. We pride ourselves in having our own sound but try to keep the music from being too “cerebral” We want it to be interesting and fresh but also listenable. Thats very important to us. To keep the music from sounding stiff, everyone tries to trust each other’s musical taste. Even though I write all of the tunes, it’s still a very open vibe on stage. No matter what song the band is playing, we’re always open to experimentation. Most of the members of the band have known each other for around 10 yrs so we’ve got a great vibe going.”

It's hard to catch the wind; the freedom of the highway, and the psychedelic insanity that was 1974. Ellen Kaye is tackling all three in her new run at Silvana. Two years after Watergate, two weeks after Nixon resigns and Ford takes office, America is pulling out of Vietnam, Shirley Chisolm has recently run for President. The Black Panthers, The Weather Underground, The Symbionese Liberation Army and Patty Hearst, and Angela Davis are the news as Ellen begins hitchhiking cross country - adventures good and bad, and a two year residency on Harts Island - it's a quintessential tale of some badass days and nights. Thank God Ethan Fein is on guitar. And Seth Goldman is keeping score. Blues/Folk

After many incarnations, the band finally settled on its current lineup of lead guitar, rhythm guitar, bass, and of course, vocals. Franglais seeks to blend the rhythmic drive of gypsy jazz, the nostalgia of French chanson, and the distinct soul of American music.

Punta is one specific traditional Garifuna rhythm. Aside from Punta, other Garifuna rhythms are Paranda, Chicanare, Culiu, Wanarague, Bihamanadi, and others. Dances include Punta, Cumbia, Sambay, Culiou, Paranda, Chicanare, Wanaragua and others. Instruments include Garifuna drums (or garawon), turtle and conch shells, maracas, bass, keyboards, guitar, and drums.

11pm-12am: Damian Quiñones y su Conjunto - Latin / Rock / Funk

images/2017/04/7360.jpg
www.damianquinones.bandcamp.com/
For over a decade Damian Quinones has been simmering just under the radar writing tuneful, fun, smart psychedelic rock songs in somewhat of the same vein as the Zombies. His new ep Happy Accidents explores his edgier, harder-rocking side, sort of like a lo-fi version of Love Camp 7. This album took shape as Quinones began demoing songs in his home studio and then must have realized that what he had – with some welcome contributions from a brass section – was perfectly fine for public consumption. Here he plays guitars, bass, percussion and keys, along with Greg Richardson on bass, Brian Baker and Geoffrey Hull on trumpets, Eric Fraser on bansuri flute and Patrick McIntyre and Seth Johnson on drums.
