TROMBONIST/COMPOSER JOE FIEDLER LEADS A TRIO FEATURING ROB JOST AND SATOSHI TAKEISHI FOR THE NEXT MONDAY NIGHT JAZZ SESSION
@ QUINN’S, MONDAY, APRIL 14 AT 8 PM
“A trombonist known for his remarkable array of timbral effects…” – Time Out New York
“A versatile trombonist with adventurous tastes . . .” – The New York Times
The next Monday night jazz session @ Quinn’s features one of the finest trombonists and composers in contemporary jazz, Joe Fiedler leading a trio featuring Rob Jost on bass and Satoshi Takeishi, returning to Quinn’s following his rapturously well-received duo night with Jason Kao Hwang in March, on drums. The trio will perform on Monday, April 14 at 8 PM.
Joe Fiedler’s experience ranges from leading bands like his celebrated Big Sackbut ensemble, as well as performing with noted figures like Cecil Taylor, MacArthur “genius grant” fellow Miguel Zenon, Eddie Palmieri, Tony Malaby and many others. Fiedler has also been for several seasons a music director for the legendary children’s show Sesame Street, for which he has written more than 150 arrangements and crafted more than 5000 underscoring cues. For his part, bassist Jost is an enormously in-demand musician who has performed with such high-profile artists as Bjork, the Saturday Night Live band and others. And Takeshi’s extensive experience nevertheless left many unprepared and astonished by his incomparable acoustic drumming wedded to a stunning use of interactive electronics in his performance at Quinn’s last month. The breadth of experience for this group makes April 14th one of most eagerly anticipated jazz sessions yet to be presented at Quinn’s.
Quinn’s is located at 330 Main St. in Beacon, NY. As with every Monday jazz session @ Quinn’s, there is no cover charge at the door but donations for the musicians will be requested and gratefully accepted.
The other concerts as part of the Monday jazz sessions @ Quinn’s for 2014 include:
April 21: Accortet — A truly unique ensemble for the sessions, a group comprising Michael Bisio on bass, Kirk Knuffke on cornet, Art Bailey on accordion and Michael Wimberly on drums;
April 28: Alan Juice Glover Quartet — A major, under-recognized force in the history of American creative music greatly undeserving of his obscurity, here’s (another!) Poughkeepsie-based legend we’re psyched to spotlight with this rare local gig. From his years performing at the legendary Firehouse space in the East Village in the ’70s, to his ongoing extraordinary work for decades in the Hudson Valley, the amazingly accomplished saxophonist/composer/Renaissance Man “Juice” Glover is sure to bring it with a powerful quartet including Lora Cohan on piano, William Hopson on bass and Michael T.A. Thompson on drums;
May 19: Michael Kadnar — Extraordinary young drummer Kadnar leads a group with Sean Morrison on organ;
June 23: Andrea Wolper — One of the most distinctive vocalists in modern jazz, Wolper is joined in her trio by Michael Howell on guitar and Ken Filiano on bass.
