Sun. Jan 29 at 7pm
$20 adv./$20 door seated <21 w/parent
Featuring Mariah Parker (composer, pianist, santurist), Grammy-winner Paul McCandless, of Oregon and Paul Winter Consort fame (reed and horns), Ancient Future bandleader Matthew Montfort (guitar), Ian Dogole (percussion) and Kash Killion (bass, cello). “Parker and friends blend the rhythmic syncopations of Latin jazz music with the entrancing, asymmetrical meters of East Indian rhythms resulting in first-class world music. Intriguing melodies that draw musical inspiration from the tempos of Brazil, Cuba, India and Spain make for an uplifting serene yet passionate musical journey into an ideal world.” – LATIN BEAT MAGAZINE. In 2009 Mariah and her Indo Latin Jazz Ensemble performed their debut concert to a full house at Yoshi's in Oakland. Her upcoming release, Indo Latin Jazz Live in Concert, captures the magic of that first performance as well as subsequent concerts at Berkeley's Freight & Salvage, the Throckmorton Theater in Mill Valley and Bob Weir's TRI Studios in San Rafael. This concert celebrates the release of this recording.
Paul McCandless: During a distinguished career spanning three decades, Paul McCandless has brought a soaring lyricism to his playing and composing that has been integral to the ensemble sound of two seminal world music bands, the original Paul Winter Consort and the relentlessly innovative quartet, Oregon. A gifted multi-instrumentalist and composer, McCandless has specialized in an unusually broad palette of both single and double reed instruments that reflect his grounding in both classical and jazz disciplines.
Matthew Montford: is the leader of Ancient Future, and pioneer of the scalloped fretboard guitar (an instrument combining qualities of the South Indian vina and the steel string guitar).
Ian Doogle: For 30 years, Ian has articulated his vision of Global Fusion Music as a multi-percussionist, bandleader and recording artist.
Kash Killion: has played extensively with such icons as Cecil Taylor, John Zorn, Sun Ra, Butch Morris and George Lewis.
