SHOFAR: Klezmer Meets Free Jazz

Make a reservation now!
  • Mikolaj Trzaska, Saxophone/bass clarinet
  • Raphael Roginski, electric guitar
  • Macio Moretti, drums
Event Details
The concept behind Shofar is to carry on the Jewish musical traditions that are still alive for us, while also searching for a common denominator shared by Hasidic music and free jazz. The band consists of three leading Polish musicians: Mikolaj Trzaska (saxophone, bass clarinet), Shofar's Founder Raphael Roginski (electric guitar) and Macio Moretti (drums).
Shofar's repertoire consists of traditional Jewish sacred music. As is the case with the tradition of Torah commentaries, the music recalls different currents of religious thought. This is why Hasidic nigunim appear alongside music of the oldest temple rites, and songs of prewar cantors are followed by pieces of a more liberal orientation.

Event Details
"Sosa's music is the unifying sort, yoking together Africa and jazz and Latin America and hip-hop. He makes it work, being one of those rare birds whose keyboard skills are near those of Chick Corea or Chucho Valdés." Ben Ratliff, New York Times

Omar Sosa
Composer-pianist-bandleader Omar Sosa was born in 1965 in Camagüey, Cuba's largest inland city. At age eight, Omar began studying percussion and marimba at the music conservatory in Camagüey; in Havana, as a teenager, he took up piano at the prestigious Escuela Nacional de Música, and completed his formal education at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana. Among his influences, Omar cites traditional Afro-Cuban music, European classical composers (including Chopin, Bartok, and Satie), Monk, Coltrane, Parker, Oscar Peterson, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Keith Jarrett, Chucho Valdés, and the pioneering Cuban jazz group Irakere. Moving in 1993 to Ecuador, Omar immersed himself in the folkloric traditions of Esmeraldas, the northwest coast region whose African heritage includes the distinctive marimba tradition. He relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area i n 1995, and soon invigorated the Latin jazz scene with his adventurous writing and percussive style.
This performance is sponsored by Glacier Hills Senior Living Community and supported by the Don Chisholm Friends of Jazz at Kerrytown Concert House.

  • Malcolm Bilson, fortepiano

2 Schubert incomplete movements (completions by Bilson)

Malcolm Bilson
The sound of a fortepiano in Mozart performances is familiar enough nowadays that many listeners consider it simply an equal alternative to conventional performances. But it wasn't always this way: for many years, Malcolm Bilson labored almost alone in the field. Born in California in 1935, Bilson attended Bard College and majored in piano -- conventional piano. He spent three years in Europe after graduating, gained degrees from the Vienna State Academy and the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris, completed doctoral studies at the University of Illinois, and joined the faculty at Illinois in 1962. Taking home the Rudolf Ganz Biennial Award for piano performance in 1963, Bilson seemed well on the way to a strong piano career in the academic world.

CD Release of The Contender

  • Rick Roe, piano

Event Details
Saxophonist, Composer, Arranger & Educator Diego Rivera will release his second album,“The Contender” on the D-Clef Records label. “The Contender” features 8 exciting original compositions along with 3 unique arrangements of diverse standards from composers Jerome Kern, Horace Silver and Stevie Wonder. A stellar line-up highlights Rivera’s composing and arranging skills while providing ample support for his ‘tough’ tenor-playing. Rivera also makes room on the record for some outstanding guest work by vocalist & trumpeter Bria Skonberg, vibraphonist Behn Gillece and percussionist (as well as engineer) Andrew Swift. Produced by Trombonist Michael Dease, the record explores Rivera’s reflections on life, love and his Chicano heritage. As bassist Rodney Whitaker says in the liner notes, “With his new release, “The Contender”, Diego has given us a glimpse into his life.”
“The Contender” promises to provide die-hard jazz aficionados with ‘home-cooked’ fare while simultaneously introducing a few new flavors to test their palate. As Whitaker states,
“Diego is a renaissance man steeped in the tradition of jazz history yet having one foot in jazz’s future.”
This performance is supported by the Don Chisholm Friends of Jazz at Kerrytown Concert House.
