Dave Sharp
Dave Sharp was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan where he was exposed to and inspired by the city’s rich music heritage. While earning a degree from the University of Michigan, Sharp became deeply devoted to the study of jazz and the perfection of his art. This devotion culminated in a move to San Francisco where Dave studied jazz and music theory with legendary bassist Herbie Lewis (McCoy Tyner, Cannonball Adderly, Les McCann) at the New College of California.
While living in San Francisco, Sharp served as bassist and composer for the modern jazz ensemble the Spheres of Influence and the Killer Joe Trio. After touring the West Coast with rock legends THE MELVINS, and playing a run of jazz venues in Tokyo, JAPAN, Sharp returned home to the metropolitan Detroit area in 1998, where he continues to compose, record, teach and perform live in front of appreciative audiences.

Forgotten Songs of Théodore Gouvy

Make a Reservation!

  • Joel Schoenhals, piano
Event Details

The concert will feature forgotten songs of Théodore Gouvy (1819 - 1898), early 19th Century French composer.
His songs, based on the French Renaissance Poetry of Love, illustrate and describe emotions involved in love; from joy and excitement of a new love, disappointment and lamentation in unrequited love to undying and passionate love. The duo between voice and piano is delicately and vividly interacted to depict the noble, sweet and ardent language of love of the French Renaissance while displaying a fusion of musical styles between French Mélodie and German Romanticism.

Adrienne Kaplan: Gallery Reception


Reservations are not required for this event.
Artist Statement:
Los Angeles, my birthplace, has had a great influence upon me. The Southern California light and life style is like nowhere else. When I was 35 I moved with my family here to Ann Arbor, the middle north of this country. As in Southern California I have continued to be influenced by what I see and experience, the light and the life here. At the end of summers we have rented a place on the southern beaches of Maine, for me, the far north east coast of USA. Again, different light and life.
Since living in the Midwest I have painted Ann Arbor: flowers from the Anthroposophical Society gardens, the Huron river at Gallup Park, U-M Arboretum, our back garden and friends, cars and friends, Strictland’s market, road kill, and food; in Maine: people at the beach, in the house, rainy days, and food.
Southern California subconsciously seeps into all of it, not only the light and colors, but outlook. All of this is combined with my formal education, years of studio work at Chouinard Art Institute, USC, University of Hawaii, UCLA, Immaculate Heart, EMU, and U-M, and twenty years as a graphic designer in Ann Arbor.
The representational subjects of my paintings are heart-felt. But that’s not all; it’s not just recreating the imagery. It is the way it is treated on the 2-D surface. I have used many materials for depiction: ink, graphite, erasers, pencils, pastels, oil paint, and more recently acrylics. Acrylics are safe and offer a wide variety of surface opportunities. Each painting is an exploration with, I hope, a happy ending, communication.
Current exhibits are available for viewing Monday – Friday from 9:30 am to 5 pm, during public concerts and by appointment. For more information or to make an appointment, call[masked]-2999.

Songs of Love and Death by Messiaen

Make a Reservation!
  • Glenn Tucker Presents A Jazz NativityElizabeth Pearse, soprano
  • Karl Larson, piano
Event Details
This concert is part of a recital tour of Olivier Messiaen’s Harawi. Olivier Messiaen’s immense song cycle Harawi (1945) is the first part of what has become known as the “Tristan trilogy” - followed by Turangalîla Symphony and Cinq Rechants. Exploring tropes of love and death, Messiaen ecstatically blends borrowed Peruvian folklore and melodies with themes from the Tristan/Isolde fated-love story.
The project was extremely personal for Messiaen – as he composed Harawi, his wife Clair Delbos was beginning to succumb to the long illness which eventually took her life. Additionally, the pianist for whom he wrote this and many other works, Yvonne Loriod, later became his second wife. His text explores ideas of fated love and death, invoking surreal images and descriptions of color, exotic sounds and incantations. Harawi makes monumental demands of both singer and pianist, and the duo of Karl Larson and Liz Pearse are thrilled to present this true treasure of 20th century literature.
The text to mvt. X of Harawi, “Amour oiseau d’étoile”, describes Sir Roland Penrose’s painting “Seeing is Believing (L'Ile Invisible)”. Having viewed the painting in an art journal, Messiaen considered this image to symbolically represent the whole of Harawi.
“…Your head inverted under the sky
Your eye of star, tumbling chains, towards the stars

…Far from the tableau my hands sing,
Star, augmented silence of the sky.
My hands, your eye, your neck, the sky”

Bobby Streng Group
  • Bobby Streng, saxophone/composer
  • Kris Kurzawa, guitar
  • Dale Grisa, piano
  • Takashi Iio, bass
  • Jonathan Ovalle, drums
Event Details
This concert will feature the five piece Bobby Streng Group. The project combines his loves for arranging multiple colors with improvisational flexibility allowed in a small group performance. Bobby states: "I love the instrumentation of this group. The versatility is very fun to work with. Having the guitar and piano allows me to often use guitar like a second horn player. The color achieved from a tenor sax and electric guitar unison is well documented in fusion, my favorite being the recordings by Mike Stern. With the five piece, I take that sound and liberally apply it into my jazz compositions."

This concert is supported by the Don Chisholm Friends of Jazz at Kerrytown Concert House.

The Whammies: music of Steve Lacy
  • Jorritt Dijksta, alto sax/lyricon
  • Jeb Bishop, trombone
  • Pandelis Karayorgis, piano
  • Mary Oliver, violin/viola
  • Nate McBride, bass
  • Han Bennink, drums
Event Details
Steve Lacy (July 23, 1934 – June 4, 2004), born Steven Norman Lackritz in New York City, was a jazz saxophonist and composer recognized as one of the important players of soprano saxophone.[1] Coming to prominence in the 1950s as a progressive Dixieland musician, Lacy went on to a long and prolific career. He worked extensively in experimental jazz and dabbled in free improvisation, but Lacy's music was typically melodic and tightly-structured. Lacy also became a highly distinctive composer with a signature organic of style, with compositions often built out of little more than a single questioning phrase, repeated several times.
The music of Thelonious Monk became a permanent part of Lacy's repertoire after a stint in the pianist's band, with Monk's songs appearing on virtually every Lacy album and concert program; Lacy often partnered with trombonist Roswell Rudd in exploring Monk's work. Beyond Monk, Lacy performed the work of jazz composers such as Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington and Herbie Nichols; unlike many jazz musicians he rarely played standard popular or show tunes.
The Whammies, featuring an all-star cast of musicians from the Amsterdam, Chicago, and Boston improvisation scenes, is releasing their second CD “The Whammies Play The Music Of Steve Lacy, Vol. 2” once again focusing on compositions by the late saxophone iconoclast Steve Lacy. This CD is being released by Driff Records, a label founded by Boston-area improvisers Jorrit Dijkstra and Pandelis Karayorgis as part of a batch of four new releases. The Whammies toured the American Northeast in January 2013 and is planning European tours in November 2013, March 2014 and summer 2014.The Whammies (named after a Steve Lacy tune) brings together musicians from three cities, united by an interest in creating adventurous improvisational forms.
