Manring, Kassin, & John R, Union Square, Wednesday June 4th at 12:15pm

If you like Jazz, you will enjoy this Free lunch time Concert. After the show we can go out for a lunch or a drink. I hope to see you there.  Since I do not know the layout of Union Square for these shows, we will have to find each other by mobile phone. I will sent out my mobile phone number to all that RSVP "Yes" a day or two before the concert.

If any one knows of a good place to meet, please let me know.

Manring, Kassin, & John R.

Separately, Michael Manring, Larry Kassin, and John R. Burr have extensive, multi-faceted careers as musicians. Together they play provocative, complex compositions - music that tears down stylistic walls and refuses to be compartmentalized - echoes of jazz, rock, folk, avant-garde, and world music - something completely new: extemporaneous-jazz-chamber-fusion-music for the new century. 


Michael Manring

 (bass), known for his innovative approach to the bass and adventurous solo concerts, has appeared on approximately 200 recordings, and toured throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia. He has received Grammy and Bammie nominations, the Berklee School of Music Distinguished Alumni Award, two Gold Records, and the 

Bassist of the Year

 award from the readers of Bass Player magazine. 


Larry Kassin

 (flute) founded the internationally recognized Noe Valley Music Series in 1981. His wide-ranging performance style has led to appearances with Bobby McFerrin, Jessica Williams, SF Klezmer Experience, Rhiannon, Sonia, and Box Set, plus two CD release with Doors keyboardist Ray Manzerek and Beat poet Michael McClure. 

“Manzarek and McClure are brilliantly abetted by Larry Kassin throughout the album."

 -Kevin Ring, Beat Scene 


John R. Burr

 (piano). After years of touring with such artists as Maria Muldaur, The Alison Brown Quartet, Paul McCandless, Michael Manring, and Kathy Kallick and recognition including a feature spot on Windham Hill's Piano Sampler II, Burr has stepped out with his first solo album, Piedmont Avenue. John R. Burr is that rare pianist who combines jazz technique with a genuine love for folk music. The Philadelphia Weekly said, 

"Pianist extraordinaire John R. Burr has the most sparkling style since former Allman Brother-turned-Rolling Stone hired hand Chuck Leavell."
