This Tuesday edition of Jazz Alternatives featured an extended interview with Search and Restore founder Adam Schatz. Mr. Schatz spoke on many topics, including the upcoming Undead Jazzfest, running from June 23 to June 26. Info and tickets available at www.undeadjazz.com.
A necessary homage to the legendary Kronos Quartet through the means of a necessarily incomplete broadcast with good intentions. The intentions were, namely, to provide an eclectic yet aurally engaging program following in consequence from two axioms:
1 That the Kronos Quartet is "basically" a classical ensemble, and
2 Everything the Kronos Quartet plays is very good
In a way, much of the music on this program could be viewed as a continuation of Ms. Rubashkin's 6/16 Cereal Music program, featuring unusual arrangements of well-known pieces.
This afternoon, I had Twistycat into our WKCR studios to play a live set, talk about their music and arts projects, and guest DJ Monday's "Afternoon New Music." Twistycat is the electroacoustic bass clarinet/baritone sax and electronics duo of Lea Bertucci and Ed Bear.
