Music: Modern-Creative Jazz – Live indoors is back!

Forbes Graham, trumpet, lap top
Yedidyah Syd Smart, drums, percussion – our special guest now from NY
Jacob William, bass

"Miles Beyond: The New Sounds of Trumpet", NPR August, 2010: "There are hidden secrets in the horn and a host of musical linguists uncovering new languages...FORBES GRAHAM doesn't ignore it. He embraces the blue note and turns it "magenta haze." The Boston-area improviser sputters and attacks the trumpet with shark-attack notes before letting out a haunting whistled horn like a meditative Don Cherry, or a gruffled stutter like a duck being strangled".

“For more than 50 years, Syd Smart has been a hidden gem in the Boston music scene; hidden, that is, unless you know where to look. Smart is a master percussionist who has carved out his own unique niche teaching and playing improvisational music that could be labeled free jazz or world music”. The Arts Fuse.

“… bassist Jacob William is the revelation of the album, Secondary Deviations, since no matter how good his frontline is, his open rhythmic pulse drives them on, slows them down, sets the tone and scene, like a solid and supple backbone that keeps the music focused and coherent”. Transientones.com

Cost: $10.00
