Finally, now is also a good time to spring for some AUM Fidelity ++ sounds & vision direct, as it sure will help us get 'round the bend into 2017, which promises a relative flurry of releases in the first 6 months. Mutually beneficial! Thank you!!
The three 2016 Releases!
Eri Yamamoto Trio @ Cornelia Street Café
Tuesday, December 27
In what has become an annual tradition for Eri and her Trio, ringing the year out with beauty & reflection in late December @ the intimate Cornelia St. Café.
William Parker Quartet w/ Cooper-Moore, Hamid Drake, Rob Brown
@ Winter Jazz Fest – Friday, January 6 Marathon Day
If you'll be making the rounds during WJF's sometimes delightfully manic frenzy, do be at the New School 12th Street Auditorium @ 12am. This is one of the two WP Quartets that in October recorded half of the forthcoming double-album!
William Parker @ Roulette, Night One
Friday, January 13
"Healing Songs From The Tone World"
William Parker @ Roulette, Night Two
Saturday, January 14
"Creation of the Tone World (A)"
And, in what has also wonderfully become an annual tradition, William Parker welcomes the "just born" year with all new large-scale works (both in scale of composition & personnel) @ Roulette in Brooklyn. I very much expect these nights to be both genuinely healing & enlightening.
May we all forward with compassion and fortitude; may the Cosmos give very positive energy to all transformative actions against hate and ignorance in the coming year,
P.S. This Radio Garden is incredibly cool.
