    Special Afternoon Event: The Wit and Wisdom of Albert "Tootie" Heath Dec 25 4pm

    4:00pm $20.00 Suggested Donation

     
    The Wit and Wisdom of Albert "Tootie" Heath
    Suggested Donation: $20
     
    Albert "Tootie" Heath made his recording debut on John Coltrane's first album as a leader, "Coltrane", released on Prestige in 1957. Growing up in Philadelphia during a historically vibrant time, Tootie came of age playing with the likes of Bobby Timmons, McCoy Tyner, and Jimmy Garrison, as well as his older brothers Jimmy and Percy. Tootie lived in New York and Denmark through the the 60's, and continued to make history working with Thelonious Monk, Nina Simon, Wes Montgomery, Dexter Gordon, and many others.
    In 1969, Tootie joined Herbie Hancock’s band and recorded The Prisoner; during this year he recorded a debut album as a leader, Kawaida, which features the poetry of his nephew, James Mtume, as well as performances by Hancock, Don Cherry, and Ed Blackwell. During the 70s, 80, and 90s, the Heath Brothers was a top draw at the festivals and in the clubs worldwide; Tootie was also a first call for statesmen like Benny Golson and Cedar Walton. In recent years, Tootie's activity has often included a host of relatively younger musicians including Jeb Patton, David Wong, Ethan Iverson, Ben Street, Richard Sears, and Emmet Cohen. Currently, Tootie lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He is 84 years old.

    Michael Bates’ Acrobat / Mother Octopus Jan 9

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

    Michael Bates’ Acrobat
    Marty Ehrlich-clarinet
    Mazz Swift-violin
    Sara Schoenbeck-bassoon
    Michael Bates-bass
    Michael Sarin-drums
     
    Acrobat, the quintet led by bassist/composer Michael Bates, features five fearless voices sharing a passionate commitment to creativity and artistic beauty.  Here, the quintet explores one of music's most mysterious personalities, Dmitri Shostakovich.  With literal themes by Shostakovich or themes composed with his spirit, "Acrobat" is full of music that is playful yet dark and swinging.  And while Shostakovich is clearly being channeled, the voices of these five fantastic improvisers will be on full display: Beautiful and vicious, elegant and dissonant, and humor laced with serene sarcasm.

    Megg Farrell, Foster Power, Belle-Skinner Jan 24

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

    Foster-Powell is a triangular neighborhood in Portland, Oregon, which sprang up around the construction of Portland's electric street car line in the 1890s. Meanwhile, Foster Powell is an indie rock band based in Boston. They sing from the gut and shoot from the hip. Their songs are astonishingly true, and hearty, and occasionally sound like lost Beatles cuts. ​Foster Powell, Amy Anders, and Daniel O'Connor met at Bennington College and in the fall of 2018 formed a formidable trio of electric guitar, octave "fiddle bass", drum kit (as played by a classical percussionist), and vocal harmonies. Carling Berkhout (Carling & Will, Surplus Daughters) has since joined on lead guitar.

    Belle-Skinner is a dark nostalgic singer-songwriter based in upstate New York and Brooklyn. With a hauntingly beautiful, lilting soprano and innate sense of melody she crafts tales of songbirds, sirens and desert nomads - nuanced and layered stories which bridge the gap between past and present. Though her influences cover a broad range of genres - from French chansons and Russian folk to contemporary alt-pop and rock - her voice often draws comparisons to the likes of Joni Mitchell, Jeff Buckley, and Lana Del Rey. Opening for acts such as Mitski, Sean Rowe, Bill Ryder-Jones (Arctic Monkeys), Saint Saviour (Groove Armada) and Heather Maloney, she has performed at venerated venues and festivals including The Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and the Roundhouse Theatre in London. "A hidden treasure...Belle-Skinner reflects the deepest flaws and the greatest beauties of human nature within her music, which is both charming and chilling, and a simple joy to listen to." -The Wild Honey Pie
