"Manring, Kassin and Darter" July 26th @ St. Cyprian's 7:30pm


I personally love this band, and it is billed as a Farewell Concert, so this might be your last chance to see them played together.

Friday, July 26 8:00pm

$15 door / $12 advance


"Bach meets Monk meets Varese meets Zappa? MKD tosses colossal musical ideas back and forth as if genres and styles didn’t exist." Ernie Rideout, Keyboard Magazine

One of the most innovatively, telepathic-improv ensembles plays what could be one of its last concerts as pianist Tom Darter moves to the Great Northwest (Washington state). Their unique blend of Brazilian, jazz, rock, impressionist, funk, “Bartok-jazz”, tango, calypso, 12-tone compositions, bent ragtime and Balinese gamelan, along with their bass, flute & piano format, has been described as "chamber music for the new millennium" or "the world's most sophisticated jam-band." -depending on your point of view.

Michael Manring has been hailed as "a master of the fretless bass without rival “by Guitar Club Magazine while flutist Larry Kassin was singled out for his "brilliantly abetting" the late, great keyboardist Ray Manzarek on their recordings with poet Michael McClure. This could be a last chance to hear their virtuoso extemporaneous "jazz chamber fusion music" & witness their tearing down of musical walls. “Mind-boggling musicianship. Complex, provocative compositions. Darter, Manring and Kassin are all-around awesome!” –Greg Rule, Keyboard Magazine Guitarist/composer (& local favorite) Kevin Barnard will open.

    I wonder if there's a way to buy a ticket w/out paying the service fee? I'll call the church, but if anyone knows, I'd love to avoid the surcharge.
    I know Michael Manring, but haven't seen him in years, so this is great!
    So glad to see this!
