So who is Joseph Jarman? Art Ensemble refugee? Bruce Lee? Dali Lama? All of the above and more, no doubt.." – Jason Gross, PerfectSound
During the 1970s, Joseph Jarman was an integral player in the freshest approach to black music of the last half-century. As a founding member of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Jarman interwove a range of musical traditions as diverse as African percussion, American jazz and blues, and 20th century European music. The result was a level of musical freedom that drew from diverse traditions but had its roots in an African American perspective: Great Black Music, Ancient To The Future." Jarman's own life's journey has interwoven his musical endeavors with his spiritual studies into Buddhism. Jarman's studies in Buddhism and the martial art Aikido became so consuming that he gave up music completely in 1993 only returning to public performance in 1996 shortly before the first Vision Festival. He now performs regularly working again with the Art Ensemble as well as being an important part of the Vision community. Joseph Jarman's approach to music can not be separated from his spirituality. Jarman sees all aspects as interwoven and approaches each performance as part of his own spiritual/musical journey.
Ted Daniel’s International Brass and Membrane Corporation, 9pm Charles Burnham - violin, Joe Daley - tuba, Newman Taylor-Baker - drums
Daniel put on a stirring display of invention and virtuosity. He was equally captivating on trumpet, cornet, fluegelhorn and short and long hunting horns." - David Adler, JazzTimes
Jazz's prodigal trumpeter Ted Daniel is back, and will perform on this night with his new group The International Brass and Membrane Corporation. Daniel was one of the avant garde's first call trumpeters during the late 1960s and 1970s and performed and recorded with various giants including Archie Shepp, Dewey Redman, Sam Rivers, Henry Threadgill and Daniel's childhood friend Sonny Sharrock. Despite his popularity among musicians, Daniel was rarely heard during the '80s and '90s. Ted Daniel has returned to the scene in top form, performing both with his own groups and with various collective projects. The International Brass and Membrane Corporation is Daniel's newest performing group. The group performed at Dave Douglas' trumpet festival at Tonic last year and received highly favorable reviews in Jazz Times and elsewhere. The group's unusual instrumentation of trumpet, violin, tuba and drums is unique in the jazz world, allowing for a wide range of sonic possibilities.
Tickets available at the door. $10 per set / $15 for the evening. Sets at 7:30pm & 9pm Non-press inquiries, call 212.696.6681 or send email to email@example.com Coming February 19: Downtown Music Gallery presents Jenny Sheinman (special 10pm start time)
