Lizard Lounge fave Club D'Elf, the experimental groove based inprovisational brainchild of Mike Rivard, share the stage tonight with Ben Perowsky's Moodswing Orchestra.
One of the most accomplished drummers of his generation, Ben Perowskys notable career has placed him among a small vanguard of players able to move between jazz, experimental music and cutting edge pop and rock. Ben began his early performing life with jazz legend James Moody, pop songstress Rickie Lee Jones and R&B star Roy Ayers. He went on to tour and record with Miles Davis sidemen Bob Berg, Mike Stern and later John Scofield. Ben has collaborated with numerous artists since then including Elysian Fields, Joan as Policewoman, Uri Caine, Steven Bernstein, John Zorn, Ronnie Cuber, Dave Douglas, Walter Becker and John Luries Lounge Lizards. Amidst his busy sideman/recording career, Ben created and co-led the band Lost Tribe who released three critically acclaimed records. In 06 Ben created his own label, El Destructo Records with two releases to date: El Destructo: Volume I, a blending of dark ambient dub improv and El Destructo: Volume II Moodswing Orchestra which expands on this idea, adding more instrumentalists and 5 well-known vocalists. In 06 Ben formed the Red Cred Quartet with Chris Speed, John Medeski and Larry Grenadier. They meet regularly in the Catskill mountains to play concerts. In 08 Ben played on the disco hit song Blind by Hercules and Love Affair. Inspired, Ben introduced Diva, a disco inflected roaming, improvised dance party built for chance special guests. In the Spring of 09 The Ben Perowsky Quartet: Chris Speed, Ted Reichman and Drew Gress will release a CD featuring Bens latest compositions and arrangements on Skirl records.
