    7:30 Door 8:00 Show $12.00 suggested donation

     

    Trumpeter and composer Michael Sarian has been praised for his “unique compositional and instrumental voice… reminiscent of [his] lyrical contemporaries such as Ralph Alessi, Ambrose Akinmusire or Avishai Cohen.” (Friedrich Kunzmann, AAJ) Born in Toronto and raised in Buenos Aires, Michael relocated to NYC in 2012, and has performed at some of the most iconic international stages, including the Montreux Jazz Festival, the Kennedy Center, Teatro Colón in Argentina, the Blue Note Jazz Club, Jazz at Lincoln Center, BRIC JazzFest, and Central Park SummerStage. He has appeared on WNYC’s Soundcheck with John Schaefer, NPR’s World Cafe, and many more.

    Amir ElSaffar has been described as “uniquely poised to reconcile jazz and Arabic music,” (the Wire) and “one of the most promising figures in jazz today” (Chicago Tribune). ElSaffar has created techniques to play microtones and ornaments idiomatic to Arabic music that are not typically heard on the trumpet. He is also one of the few musicians in his generation to master the centuries-old Iraqi maqam tradition, which he performs actively as a vocalist and santur player, merging it with contemporary Western harmony. ElSaffar has received the Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, a US Artists Fellowship, and a Hodder Fellowship at Princeton University.
