Jeffrey Zeigler is one of the most versatile cellists of our time. He has commissioned dozens of works, and is admired as a potent collaborator and unique improviser. Described as “fiery”, and a player who performs “with unforced simplicity and beauty of tone” by the New York Times, he has recently given several notable premiers by Bryce Dessner, Derek Charke, John King, Paola Prestini, JG Thirlwell, Shara Worden and John Zorn. Recent collaborations include Andy Akiho, Laurie Anderson, Philip Glass, Hauschka, Vijay Iyer, Glenn Kotche, Kimmo Pohjonen, Foday Musa Suso, Tanya Tagaq and Roomful of Teeth. Praised for his “excellent” and “precisely attuned” performances by the New York Times, percussionist Ian David Rosenbaum has developed a musical breadth far beyond his years. He made his Kennedy Center debut in 2009 and later that year garnered a special prize created for him at the Salzburg International Marimba Competition.

Butler, Bernstein and the Hot 9 is an artistic collaboration destined to happen. Ever since New Orleans singer and pianist Henry Butler settled in Brooklyn, it was only a matter of time before the gifted pianist and vocalist hooked up with retro-futurist trumpeter and bandleader Steven Bernstein. Take a blustery brass lineup, layer it over a rhythm section led by a stride-piano virtuoso in the Fats Waller vein, and tie the whole thing together with a frontwoman with a voice from another era, and you have the Hot Sardines. It’s a great American success story worthy of the cinema. Trumpeter/vocalist Bria Skonberg is “poised to be one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation.”(Wall Street Journal) A specialist in classic American hot jazz, Skonberg expands the vocabulary and traditions of Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet with worldly rhythms and modern jazz variance. Bria Skonberg will perform with the New York Hot Jazz All-Stars featuring Anat Cohen on clarinet, Vince Giordano on bass, Joe Saylor (from Jon Batiste’s band) on drums, and Dalton Ridenhour on piano.

In Mexico, Morrissey has always been a prophet with honour. His songs of love, loss and longing, with powerful imagery and metaphors have found a huge audience and chimed with generations raised on rancheras and mariachis and their singers who were not afraid to cross the line. Now the love can be returned, with a band made in Mexico City reinventing Morrissey’s songs south of the border. Together they sound like a brass and accordion led combo from the smallest village with the biggest bleeding heart. Taking us on a journey of love, loss and longing is an incredible team of big hitters from Mexico’s rock and pop world, who immediately said yes to Mexrrissey’s invitation. Los Cafres are one of Latin America’s most iconic reggae bands. Formed in Buenos Aires, the band created their signature sound by combining reggae roots with Spanish-language lyrics. In their 25-year span, Los Cafres have release 13 albums, each one reaching Gold/Platinum status in Argentina. In 2013 they received a Latin Grammy nomination for their CD/DVD “Los Cafres – 25 Años de Música.” Yaite Ramos, a Cuban musician living in Paris, is the daughter of Jesus “Aguaje” Ramos (musical director of the Buena Vista Social Club Orchestra). Previously a flautist and part of the chorus with Sargento Garcia, she also was the lead singer of El Hijo de la Cumbia live act. Today, she presents the second album of La Dame Blanche – directed by Marc Babylotion Damblé (Sargento Garcia, Amadou and Mariam, Orishas), French Beat Maker – and composed under the artistic direction of Emiliano Gomez, a.k.a El Hijo de la Cumbia, an Argentinian producer renowned for his fusion of Cumbia and urban sounds.

She comes from New York. He lives in Paris. Her name is Nicolle Rochelle. His name is Antoine Chatenet. Fighting against their geographic destiny, they have found each other. Together they make French songs with an American vibe, and American songs with a French touch in which eras cross and inspirations collide: from pop to old-time New York swing with a mix of electro beats and poetics. As a hybrid genre between Caro Emerald and Caravan Palace, they only have one idea in mind: to make generations of people dance, sway, and sing along to melodies that stay in your head long after Ginkgoa has left the building.

After debuting in the #1 position of the U.S. Latin Alternative Rock in the iTunes chart and as #2 on the general chart of Mexico, “Voluma,” the second and anticipated soloist album of León Larregui begins to show signs of becoming one of the most acclaimed albums this year. The album’s first single, “Locos”, which also debuted at #1 on iTunes a few weeks ago, was placed on the top of the national Latino Monitor radio charts. One of the masterminds behind Brazilian band Los Hermanos and founding member of the samba supergroup Orquestra Imperial, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rodrigo Amarante is an inescapable musical figure in his native South American home. Breaking out of the Brazilian market in 2008, alongside friends Fabrizio Moretti and Binki Shapiro, Amarante formed the group Little Joy and the trio released their self titled debut album which gained critical acclaim in the US and worldwide.

Ten years ago Paste Magazine put John Ritter on its 100 Greatest Living Songwriters list, and the honor was well deserved; his incisive narratives and warm delivery make him one of the finest storytellers in music. The soulful vocalist Martha Redbone’s music flows equally from her own unique, award-winning blend of Native American elements with funk and her deep roots in Appalachian folk and Piedmont blues. And Birds of Chicago, led by husband and wife JT Nero and Allison Russell, will reflect on “the intense, freewheeling, all-too-fleeting attachments of youth” (NPR) with wistful, meditative lyrics and luminous harmonies.

Los Soneros de Oriente is a New York city-based group specializing in the Cuban Són – a folk style that forms much of the basis for modern salsa - for more than 30 years. The music, rooted in African-based rhythms and tunes performed on Cuban folk instruments, began in the 1880's, in the Oriente Province. When workers migrated to the cities, they incorporated Spanish influences to create a unique Cuban music using harmony vocals, percussion, trumpets, piano, bass, and guitars, that soon became the most popular music of not only the working classes, but of Cubans on all levels of society. Los Soneros de Oriente brings with delight traditional Cuban music, a treasure that remains pulsing through you long after the show.

Comprised of brothers Oliver and Chris and the percussionist Jano Rix, the band released its first studio album, Ways Not to Lose, on Blue Note Records in 2006. Aoife O'Donovan has been a powerful presence in the world of American folk since her teens when she founded the progressive bluegrass band Crooked Still. Always a sought after collaborator — she appears on The Goat Rodeo Sessions, a project that features Chris Thile, Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, and is one-third of the project I’m With Her with Sarah Jarosz and Sara Watkins — she has become an extraordinary solo artist. The shape-shifting M.C. Taylor, a.k.a. Hiss Golden Messenger, a North Carolina musician with a voice that’s “craggy and wounded, but it soars in his broken sort of way,” (Stereogum) kicks off the evening with a solo set.

Concert |
Paulo Flores is a legendary Angolan singer-songwriter keeping the flame of semba music alive in the 21st century. Semba is the elegant, earthy, African ancestor of Brazilian samba — and the root of today’s kuduro and kizomba dance crazes. While Colombia is often synonymous with Cumbia, the music from the Pacific Coast, like that of Herencia de Timbiquí, remains largely unexplored. Herencia de Timbiquí works to preserve the ancestral roots of the marimba de chonta, and traditional instruments such as the bombo, cununos and the guasá and combines them with a powerful band, including energetic vocals, brass, keyboards, and guitar. Monsieur Periné is one of the leading bands in Colombia‘s thriving new music scene. The group won a Latin GRAMMY award for “Best New Artist” in 2015, and their latest album Caja de Musica was produced by Eduardo Cabra, aka Visitante from the groundbreaking Puerto Rican group Calle 13.

Formed in Haledon, NJ in 1976, The Feelies released 4 albums, including their critically acclaimed and influential debut Crazy Rhythms, which was voted 49 in the top 100 albums of the 1980s by Rolling Stone magazine and chosen by Spin Magazine as 49 of the best alternative records of all time. Beach Fossils began in 2009 as the solo project of Dustin Payseur. Before and after the 2010 release of the S/T debut LP and 2011’s What A Pleasure EP, they performed around the world with a lineup that once featured Cole Smith (DIIV) and John Peña (Heavenly Beat). They quickly became known for their highly energetic stage show, bringing the recorded work to a volume and tempo that would make even the indie-est of crowds wind up in a frenzy.

The propulsive, explosively intelligent choreographer Camille A. Brown creates work that is both viscerally and intellectually exciting. Her evening-length piece Black Girl: Linguistic Play explores black female identity through a series of dances “so elastic, so intricate that the sense of cadence and rhythm is as visual an experience as it is an aural one.” (NY Times) The evening begins with a set by the remarkable Brandee Younger, “a harpist of rare prominence in jazz, building on an African-American legacy largely defined by Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane.” (NY Times) Younger has worked worked with Ravi Coltrane, Jack DeJohnette, Charlie Haden, Bill Lee and Reggie Workman, and has appeared on recordings with popular artists including John Legend, Common, Ryan Leslie, and Drake.

With her startling feats of musical reincarnation, Tammy Lang, a.k.a. Tammy Faye Starlite, is creating a new kind of cabaret. Equally gifted as an actor and singer, Lang deep dives into the vaults of art-pop-rock-whatever and returns clutching buried treasures. In Nico: Underground—her bio-show, as we might call it, that weaves spiky monologues between songs—she brings back the late Velvet Underground icon in all of her fuzzed-out, deadpan glory. Nico was a woman committed to following her own rocky path. She stood for a bruising new vision of love and other letdowns. Now, thanks to Lang’s “remarkable—and howlingly funny—portrayal,” she stands before us once again during this “morbidly fascinating night of theater” (New York Times).

Femi Kuti, eldest son of Nigerian Afrobeat pioneer Fela Anikulapo Kuti, began his career playing in his father’s band Egypt 80. He founded his own group Positive Force, with Egypt 80’s keyboard player Dele Sosimi in 1986 and has never looked back. Though he has forged his own path and become a world music icon in his own right, “the baton is definitely in his hands.” (Questlove) The Tuareg guitar wizard Bombino’s “pyrotechnic virtuosity in expressing tichumaren (desert blues) has been compared to that of Jimi Hendrix.” (NPR) Bombino, whose given name is Goumour Almoctar, was born in Tidene, Niger, an encampment of nomadic Tuaregs northeast of Agadez. His musical career has taken shape against the backdrop of his participation in various Tuareg rebellions since 1980, the year of his birth.

Her lyrics are novel and rhapsodic, cutting through the clichés and trivia of pop parlance to deliver something honest and truly perceptive. She’s performed at The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, and Carnegie Hall. DJ from 5 p.m. Live Music begins at 6:30 p.m. DJ following the set until 8:30 p.m.

The Brooklyn-based singer Gregory Porter showcases “outstanding original songs, erudite lyrics and social comment, top drawer musicianship and improvisation, and a voice to die for” (Jazz Wise) — qualities that led L’Express to call him “the next great voice in jazz.” Multi-reedist Marcus Strickland and his electrifying band Twi-Life set the tone. The songs on Strickland’s recent Blue Note/Revive debut Nihil Novi, produced by Meshell Ndegeocello and released earlier this year, offer an “array of styles, harmonic textures, and dynamics, and reveal his preoccupation with hip-hop beatmaking.” (AllMusic)

With influences ranging from African folk melodies and desert blues to jazz, pop, reggae, funk, and soul, an evening with songwriter, guitarist, and singer Daby Touré is true global adventure. Born in Mauritania, raised in Senegal, and a longtime resident of Paris, he is a citizen of the world in perpetual reconfiguration. A musical and linguistic polyglot, Touré creates an elegant sonic mixture that merges the linguistic inflections of the six languages he speaks. His music is a puzzle whose pieces, once assembled, form a comprehensive map of the world. It builds bridges between cultures, crossing borders and giving life to a poetic language and a universal sound. His live performances are joy-filled affairs, fueled by his infectious love of music.

The multiple Grammy-winning Beninoise superstar and Brooklynite Angelique Kidjo, “Africa’s premier diva,” (Time Magazine) dives headlong into the music of the Queen of Salsa in this unforgettable event, which features guest musicians like the outstanding Cuban percussionist Pedrito Martinez. Since arriving in NYC in 1999, the Cuban saxophonist, percussionist, and composer Yosvany Terry “has helped redefine Latin Jazz as a complex new idiom.” (NY Times). Terry is here with his blistering quintet, “a jazz band of Cubans that play with magnificent musicianship, passion aplenty with its heart on its sleeve.” (Jazzwise UK)

The threads of our past never unravel, they hover like invisible webs, occasionally glistening due to a sly angle of the sun. On Multi-Love, Unknown Mortal Orchestra frontman and multi-instrumentalist Ruban Nielson reflects on relationships: airy, humid longing, loss, the geometry of desire that occurs when three people align. Where Nielson addressed the pain of being alone on II, Multi-Love takes on the complications of being together. While in college Lorely Rodriguez, aka Empress Of, began sketching out a new song idea everyday, making a scrappy home-recording, and posting 1-minute YouTube videos she called “colorminutes” — little snippets of her gorgeous, ethereal pop songs set to different color screens. The mysteriousness intrigued certain corners of the underground music world and on blogs. Klaus Johann Grobe have a new record out which is called Spagat der Liebe. They will also tour through the United States and Germany this spring. They will play new songs, bring too many keyboards and gute Laune.

Along with A Tribe Called Quest, Digable Planets did more to connect hip-hop with jazz — and put forward a positive, cerebral form of the genre — than any other group. Their 1990s masterpieces Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space) and Blowout Comb — a love letter to Fort Greene which Pitchfork said “made a proto-crate-digging approach feel completely organic, and integrated with their broader goal of deepening rap’s connection to music history” — remain two of rap’s greatest and most original records. The classic Bronx duo Camp Lo have the opening honors. Comprised of Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede, the group formed in 1995 and have produced a steady stream of critically acclaimed (if publicly underappreciated) music ever since, collaborating along the way with the likes of De La Soul, Aesop Rock, Will Smith, and Pete Rock along the way. Their most recent record is last year’s Ragtime Hightimes.

Nice and Smooth is a hip hop duo from New York that consists of Greg Nice (Greg Mays) and Smooth B (Daryl Barnes). The duo released four albums from the late 1980s to the mid 1990s. Their biggest radio fame came from “Sometimes I Rhyme Slow…,” from the group’s second album, Ain’t a Damn Thing Changed, released in 1991. Born Antonia’ Reed in Philadelphia, Bahamadia was first introduced to hip hop culture as a DJ spinning at local house parties in the 80’s. A writer at heart, Bahamadia honed her skills as a poet and emcee with superior rhyme and delivery skills. Her work has been featured in electronic, progressive, jazz and experimental genres. Bahamadia’s eclecticism secured her rise to prominence on the hip hop and world music scene in the 90’s. The first human beatbox in the rap world, and still the best of all time, Doug E. Fresh amazed audiences with his note-perfect imitations of drum machines, effects, and often large samples of hip-hop classics. His introduction to most hip-hop fans came with his astonishing performance in Beat Street behind the Treacherous Three.

Descended from a long line of revered Afro-Cuban musicians, master percussionist and Havana native Joaquín "El Pulpo" Pozo, is known for his unique style, a melodic approach to four-conga drumming which is identified by its percussive inventiveness and authentically African approach of making the drums "talk." As a composer and band director, Pozo leads his tight ensemble on a journey which melds the traditional sounds of Cuba – rumba and son – with the more modern jazz, creating a singular sound which mesmerizes audiences through the rigor and playfulness of the music.

Originally formed in Brooklyn by the children of reggae legend Denroy Morgan, Morgan Heritage “has inherited the legacy of his influential music.” (Billboard) The band has been going strong since coming together for its first performance at the 1994 Reggae Sunsplash, quickly being dubbed The Royal Family of Reggae and getting signed immediately to MCA. A trio from Anguilla with global ambitions, British Dependency’s “approachable blend of reggae, funk, and pop still has a little edge—much like their satirical moniker. For a three-piece group, they’ve got a big sound.” (LargeUp.com) Their most recent record, Finding Wisdom, was recorded at Tuff Gong in Kingston; it earned them a spot touring with The Wailers last year.

Acclaimed for incorporating diverse rhythms and styles into the samba beat, Monobloco was created in 2000 by C.A. Ferrari, Celso Alvim, Mário Moura, Pedro Luís and Sidon Silva as a result of a percussion workshop. Nowadays, the group performs in a yearly parade that closes the carnival festivities and is followed through the streets of Rio de Janeiro by half a million people. Cabruêra is a band showing the other side of Brazil’s rich music scene beyond Bossa and Samba. Based in the dry and barren region of Northeast Brazil, Cabruêra spices up the rural rhythms with all the urban styles you love to groove to. Considered as the “…coolest underground group in that crazy wonderful country.” this band is a journey to an undiscovered music continent. Boogarins’ Fernando “Dino” Almeida and Benke Ferraz began playing music together as teenagers in the central Brazilian city of Goiânia – creating psychedelic pop in their parents’ gardens, filtering their country’s rich musical history through a very modern lens. By the time the group’s home-recorded debut LP, As Plantas Que Curam, was released in late 2013, the band had recruited a proper rhythm section and were developing a name around Goiânia.

The innovative trio Tigue opens: half new music ensemble, half art-rock band, they unite a homegrown ethos and conservatory precision to create something magical. The group’s debut album Peaks is “an imaginative, distinctive, hypnotic yet kinetic blend of indie classical, minimalism, post-rock and drone music.” (New York Music Daily).

Neon Indian (aka Alan Palomo)'s Night School was released in October 2015. The album was conceived during a period of aesthetic reinvention for Palomo, as he retooled the lo-fi and spontaneous writing style he’d developed as Neon Indian by incorporating elements of the cleaner production values and dance-oriented approach of his previous recording moniker VEGA, ultimately merging the two into one fast lane.

Tony Vega got involved in music while participating in a teenage rock band called City Trash. Nevertheless, the young artist was finally captivated by Afro-Caribbean rhythms, especially tropical music, joining Raphy Levitt’s la Selecta and working along with Willie Rosario soon afterwards. In 1986, Tony Vega moved to New York, teaming up with Louie Ramírez and making an album called Super Banda. He later performed alongside Eddie Palmieri. After signing to RMM, Yo Me Quedo became his solo debut album. In 1996, Tony Vega participated in Tropical Tribute to the Beatles, featuring “Hey Jude” and “Come Together.”

Mbongwana Star hails from Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo — a network of shantytowns and night shelters where founding members Coco Ngambali and Theo Nzonza (of Staff Benda Bilili fame) pulled together members of a new generation of Kinshasa musicians embodying the concept of “mbongwana,” or “change.” Along with maverick Parisian producer Doctor L, the band has created a sound that embodies the “smashed-together” nature of the surroundings from which it was born — a sound that fuses traditional Congolese rhythms with European post-punk bass and busted electronics from recycled and reconstructed instruments miked and distorted in unexpected ways. Batida is Pedro Coquenão and Pedro Coquenão is Batida. There are moments where it’s just him in front of a big crowd, and there are others where Batida is a mutant body, with more musicians, images and people masked that sings and dance on stage. Present however is always a sound that is connected to Pedro’s Angolan roots. A sound that investigates the electric past of a country, transformed in an electronic present, molded to the scale of global dance floors. (Rui Miguel Abreu – in Blitz, Portugal 15) “Dois”, his last album released on the British Soundway Records last year, struck a chord in the hearts of both Damon Albarn and Stromae, that took Batida along on tour for a few support Arena Tour shows on last November and Damon Albarn invited him to his Africa Express project twice and, all in one go, had him re-mix track “Heavy Seas of Love.” Raised in New York City by world renowned Congolese performers, Milandou Badila, known as Young Paris, crafts a unique sound that threads the boundary between rap and electronic dance music and samples heavily from traditional African drumbeats. Along with five of his ten brothers and sisters, Young Paris performs an exuberant live show that merges dance, performance art, and an unparalleled personal style.

Breeding Ground combines the two most successful projects of New York-bred pianist Jason Lindner: Now Vs. Now, his propulsive groove trio with bassist Panagiotis Andreou and drummer Mark Guiliana; and his big band, which started at the Greenwich Village basement club Smalls twenty years ago. Jason Lindner and Breeding Ground drummer Mark Guiliana worked with the late David Bowie on Blackstar, along with saxophonist Donny McCaslin, guitarist Ben Monder and bassist Tim Lefebrve. DJ Greg Caz has been spinning around New York since the early 1990s. He made a name for himself during his long stint at Black Betty (R.I.P.) in Williamsburg, where he co-hosted Brazilian Beat Sundays – a raucous DJ night of 1970s Brazilian dance music that inspired two mix CDs, Baile Funk, Vols. 1 and 2.

Jack DeJohnette - In a career that spans five decades and includes collaborations with some of the most iconic figures in modern jazz, NEA Jazz Master and Grammy Award winner Jack DeJohnette has established an unchallenged reputation as one of the greatest drummers in the history of the genre. Dave Holland - From his beginnings with Miles Davis to his celebrated ensembles of today, Grammy Award-winning bassist Dave Holland has one of the most enduring legacies in jazz. The Boston Globe praises Holland as “a master bassist and bandleader, one of the most sophisticated composers and arrangers in the jazz world.” Jason Moran - Pianist and composer Jason Moran has established himself as a risk-taker and innovator of new directions for jazz as a whole. For more than a decade, Moran and his trio The Bandwagon have dazzled audiences at elite venues worldwide, including the Village Vanguard in New York, the Newport Jazz Festival, and the North Sea Jazz Festival.

Donny McCaslin - Acclaimed saxophonist Donny McCaslin takes a bold leap forward with his tenth album as a leader, Casting for Gravity.
