what to do?

January 13, 2010

It’s another week of hard choices. Two cool events in two different towns, on one night. The same night.

Pick either one, you can’t go wrong this Friday night:

If it was a movie pitch, it would be something like “Serbia meets Turkey meets Transylvania meets wacky virtuosic cool  in the must-see Gypsy show of the year!” But it’s not a movie, it’s the Fishtank Ensemble, and they’re coming to shake the rafters at Middlebury’s Town Hall Theatre. The Ensemble’s new recording is out soon, but even if they just stick with the  funky mix on their previous Samurai Over Serbia release I’ll be happy. Ohhhh yeah, there will be some dancing going on.

Montpelier’s Black Door Bar & Bistro hosts the PoJazz (poetry + jazz) CD release party project, bringing together some of Vermont’s top poets and jazz musicians in spontaneous explorations of words and music. The project comes full circle with the release party, since the Black Door’s upstairs lounge is where the 2-CD set (“Last Days: Live at the Black Door”) was recorded in live performances over the last year and a half or so. This Friday night’s party features pianist Tom Cleary along with many other musicians and poets including Tony Whedon, Geof Hewitt, Dave Cavanaugh, and David Budbill. PoJazz is a very hip project, in the spirit of the classic Kerouac or Mingus/Langston Hughes collaborations. If you can’t get to the release party I do recommend finding a copy of PoJazz for (repeated) home listening, it’s a real joy to hear such creative inspiration realized in these fun and funky partnerships.

Two irresistable events, one night – where will you be?

poetry + jazz = PoJAZZ

October 18, 2009

AIF0239 Insert LEXp001.artThe project is described as “an experiment in words and music”, and yet there’s very little left to chance in the new PoJAZZ collaboration. Over the last year, eight of the region’s top poets came together with more than a dozen of the area’s best jazz performers in various local venues for several evenings of artistic exchange.

One of those venues was The Black Door in Montpelier, and the new PoJAZZ recording Last Days – Live from the Black Door has just been released. It’s excellent.

We’ll give PoJAZZ a listen on this week’s World of Music along with other local sounds from the trio “Twist of the Wrist”; Burlington’s psychotropical band Guagua; and the new release from Adamant-based didgeridoo virtuoso Pitz Quattrone and his Earthman Band.

Discovering the world right here at home, along with the latest from Africa, Peru, Belize, Québec, and the usual international musical hot spots.

World of Music is blues, jazz, poetry, and world music every Monday on the Radiator, 3-5pm ET. Online, or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.
