BRUCKMANN / SCHOENBECK / PHILLIPS
On the occasion of bassoonist Sara Schoenbeck’s visit from New York, an improvised trio first meeting comprising three long-term dyads.

SULT explores the hidden sounds of acoustic instruments (guitar, contrabass, percussion), magnifying them with microphones so the audience can join them inside their silent cacophony. Subtle harmonics become saws cutting through metal, and creaking wooden bodies become sinking ships. Their expression is primitive and raw, but while their playing embraces chaos, it is matched with discipline and the history of a decade-long mind-meld. The group sounds as one, with the gestalt of simultaneous layers taking primacy over any solo expression. The equality of the voices, however, invites the listener to focus on threads of their own choosing and make their own discoveries. (Jacob Felix Heule - percusion; Guro Skumsnes Moe - contrabass; TBA - acoustic guitar)  More...

Steven Bernstein Fest: MTO WEST, Shows at 7:00pm & 8:30pm

A master of the previously obscure slide trumpet, Steven Bernstein is a fearless improviser, composer and arranger. For this four-night residency presents two of his most explosive ensembles.

“When the time comes, Bernstein clicks an invisible switch and the band pops into semi-flawless unison. At that point, you might imagine yourself in Harlem in 1929,” says the Village Voice about trumpeter Steven Bernstein’s expansive Millennial Territory Orchestra, an ensemble inspired by the pre-swing era territory bands that crisscrossed the country in the 1920s and 1930s. Loose, rambunctious, and fun with an irreverent take-no-prisoners approach, the MTO grapples with tunes ranging from Basie and Mingus to Prince and the Grateful Dead to an entire album devoted to the funk of Sly and the Family Stone on 2011’s MTO Plays Sly. Presenting the West Coast debut of his MTO material, the New York-based Berkeley High alum pays homage to his early years by christening a new version of this unpredictable assemblage featuring a host of Bay Area jazz luminaries including clarinetist Ben Goldberg, saxophonist Howard Wiley, violinist Jenny Scheinman, and trombonist Jeff Cressman.  More...
