The As Yet Quintet joins five forces in New England music for a creative medley of jazz, Mideastern, and Caribbean sounds. All five musicians contribute to the quintet's program of entirely original pieces. In As Yet's music you'll hear sounds from Latin grooves to Turkish modes, Balkan rhythms played on Cuban wooden boxes, and blues with a touch of Bulgarian choral style. Compositions drawing from many traditions balance with expressive jazz soloing to create an imaginative sound and an unforgettable concert experience. The concert will take place at the West Village Meeting House (All Souls Church) at 7:30 PM, 29 South Street, West Brattleboro, VT.
Where do creative ideas come from? What inspires? How does one go from the first germ of an idea to a finished composition? Do artists, in their awareness of the creative process, have something to offer others as they create their careers and lives?
In the next public forum in the local Making it in the Arts series, musician Eugene Uman will offer his perspective on these questions at 7:30 p.m. June 1 at the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center. Using specific musical ideas and pieces, he will explore the process of artistic creation and its relevance to all of us, whether we consider ourselves artists or not.
Composer and pianist Eugene Uman and his Convergence Project returns for his seventh annual Vermont Jazz Center concert with a special night of high-energy original jazz compositions based on traditional Colombian music on Saturday, June 6th at 8 PM. Other members of the Convergence Project Joining Uman will be Michael Zsoldos, on saxophone, Jeff Galindo on trombone, Stomu Takeishi on electric bass, Satoshi Takeishi on drums and Adam O'Farrill on trumpet, who was the third place winner in this year's Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition.
