Mars Williams Presents An Ayler Xmas
with Mars Williams; Nels Cline; Steve Swell; Chris Corsano; Hilliard Greene; and Fred Lonberg-Holm.
Saxophonist Mars Williams is most famous as a member of The Psychedelic Furs, but has proven his jazz bona fides with Peter Brötzmann and Ken Vandermark, and while guiding Liquid Soul and Hal Russell's NRG Ensemble, to name just a few. He also leads the Albert Ayler tribute band Witches & Devils, and out of their holiday concerts grew a unique tradition. https://marswilliams.bandcamp.com/album/mars-williams-presents-an-ayler-xmas-vol-2Farmers By Nature
is drummer Gerald Cleaver, bassist William Parker, and pianist Craig Taborn - a fully improvising unit and a complete musical collective. Each is a highly regarded & admired composer and bandleader in his own right; their coming together to create new music is always an auspicious and deeply fruitful occasion.
DiMenna Center Mary Cary Flagler Hall is an acoustically engineered room. Notable for no environmental noise from ventilation, street noise or adjacent rooms.
There have been very few downtown music events staged in a performance hall of this type!
$20 suggested donation to support the musicians at the door.
