Tickets are $16-$36 and can be purchased online athttps://ci.ovationtix.com/1091/production/1014628.dwb (driving while black)is a new chamber opera about racism, erasure, and the fear and love that black parents experience when they send their kids out into a world that too often sees them not as a child, but as a threat. This powerful music-drama documents the all-too-familiar story of an African-American parent whose beautiful brown boy approaches driving age. What should be a celebration of independence and maturity turns out to be fraught with the anxiety of “driving while black.” Running time: 50 minutes.”Singers are storytellers,” says soprano/librettist Roberta Gumbel, “but rarely do we get the opportunity to help create the stories we are telling.” Gumbel, in collaboration with composer Susan Kander and the cutting-edge cello/percussion duo New Morse, createddwb (driving while black), which premiered in 2019 in Kansas City.”On… (read more)

Equally evocative of blues grit and hip-hop bounce, the Los Angeles-based vocal powerhouse and multi-instrumentalist leapt forward by taking a deeper look at some of her earliest inspirationsincluding Howlin’ Wolf, Robert Johnson, Vera Ward Hall and Big Mama Thornton.”For me, this album wasn’t really about experimenting,” she admits. “It was more about simplicity, honing in on what I love about music and what makes me who I am as an artist. Growing up, I listened to a lot of hip-hop and blues, and I love those two genres so much. Sometimes, to evolve you don’t need to go outside of yourself; you can reach further inside of yourself instead.”

April 07, 2020 – New York

Japans Edo period (16151868) was an immensely innovative time, during which painters belonging to lineages old and new produced a wide spectrum of visually alluring works.

The Harvard Art Museums has a long history of focusing on Japanese art, going back to the 1920s. This vision continues with the extraordinary promised gift of the collection of Robert and Betsy Feinberg, currently on display in the largest special exhibition ever mounted at the museums (February 14July 26, 2020). In this talk, Dr. Rachel Saunders, the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Curator of Asian Art at the Harvard Art Museums, takes an in depth look at some of the remarkable highlights of this exhibition of paintings from the Edo period.Followed by a book-signing reception

Wolfgang Muthspiel Trio Celebrates ECM Release ‘Angular Blues’ – Jazz Standard
Through April 15, 2020 – New York

Wolfgang Muthspiel, whom The New Yorker has called “a shining light” among today’s jazz guitarists, returns to the trio format with Angular Blues, the Austrian’s fourth ECM album as a leader, following two acclaimed quintet releases and his trio debut. Like Driftwood – the 2014 trio disc that JazzTimes dubbed “cinematic” and “haunting” – Angular Blues finds Muthspiel paired with longtime collaborator Brian Blade on drums; but instead of Larry Grenadier on bass, it’s Scott Colley, whose especially earthy sound helps give this trio its own dynamic. Muthspiel alternates between acoustic and electric guitar and, along with his characteristically melodic originals – including such highlights as the bucolic “Httengriffe” and pensive “Camino” – he essays the first standards of his ECM tenure (“Everything I Love” and “I’ll Remember April”), as well as his first-ever bebop rhythm-changes tune on record (“Ride”). Angular Blues also features a single guitar-only track, “Solo Kanon in 5/4,” with Muthspiel’s electronic delay imbuing the baroque-like rounds with a hypnotic glow.

Iyer had previously played extensively with Smith in the trumpeter’s Golden Quartet. A particularly inspiring collaboration at New York’s The Stone early in 2015 underlined the affinity of the two musicians’ sounds and concepts and made the documentation of the duo a priority.
