From the fine folks at AUM Fidelity some info on an amazing upcoming gig featuring solo David S. Ware (first gig since receiving a successful kidney transplant), Darius Jones celebrating the release of his new debut as a leader, and the always stellar William Parker’s Little Huey Creative Orchestra.
Thursday, October 15, 2009 at Abrons Arts Center, NYC
DAVID S. WARE
DARIUS JONES TRIO
WILLIAM PARKER & THE LITTLE HUEY CREATIVE MUSIC ORCHESTRA
David S. Ware has been gearing up for this performance the whole summer and up to the present moment. The one only time I’ve every seen this Master perform solo, it was a breathtaking transporting ascent. Solo is how DSW wanted to return to the stage following his life being saved. We are also very happy that Laura Mehr, who donated her kidney to David in May, will by flying up from Florida and will be in the audience, hearing David perform live for the first time.
Darius Jones so belongs up in here, oh my god, this young man will be bringing it! Some new pieces will be premiered further to selections from his stunning debut album, Man’ish Boy. Read this amazing just posted review of Darius’ album (writer got it!):
William Parker & The Little Huey Creative Music Orchestra will be making their first NYC appearance in over four years; their last show at Vision Festival 2005 was one of the most illuminated, dancing, joy-inducing, next level sets at Vision Fest, ever! They’ll be premiering a new Parker composition entitled, “Subsequent Illumination Inscriptions / Light Cottage” (for George Russell).
OK, the deal is this: AUM is renting the Abrons Arts Center in order to manifest this magnificent triple-bill; we need to sell more tickets in order to make the fee we promised to the musicians (and not be in serious debt this season). So we exhort you to please buy tix and be there if you’re in the NYC metro (and beyond..?) and also spread the good word of this event to all available friends who are into transformative live musical performance by some of the musical masters of the present era. Deal? Dynamite! (See full details below the horizontal line to forward to friends with your own pointed preface; thanks!).
Advance Tickets Now Available: $20- (plus $3.50 surcharge is true, but still a little less than $25- at the door!)
