Ideal Microscopic Numbers: Celebrating 30 Years of Cuneiform Records!
Ideal Microscopic Numbers!
Microscopic Septet, Number Stations and Ideal Bread celebrate 30 years of Cuneiform Records!
2014 represents the 30th Anniversary of Cuneiform Records, the longest consistently running record label for avant-garde rock and jazz in the United States. In celebration of their achievement and passion for this music, three of the many Cuneiform recording artists are coming together on a triple bill.
7:30 pm - Curtis Hasselbring's Number Stations CD for Cuneiform represents one iteration of his ever-evolving ensemble The New Mellow Edwards. This edition features Curtis Hasselbring (trombone, guitar), Chris Speed (tenor saxophone, clarinet), Matt Moran (vibraphone), Brad Shepik (guitar), Chris Lightcap (bass) and Tomas Fujiwara and
Ben Perowksy (drums). The New York Times has said, "They suggest rough and rocking reflections on film music (Mancini and Herrman), the Mothers of Invention and the Art Ensemble of Chicago"
8:30 pm - The Microscopic Septet has released seven CDs on Cuneiform Records, including the two double CD sets History of the Micros (vol. 1 &2), and their most recent, Manhattan Moonrise. Their brand of 'surrealistic swing' has continued to bring them accolades in their fourth decade since forming in 1981. The band features Phillip Johnston, Don Davis, Mike Hashim, and Dave Sewelson on saxophones, and Joel Forrester, David Hofstra and Richard Dworkin in the rhythm section.
9:30 pm - Ideal Bread is devoted to the exploration of the music of Steve Lacy in new and exciting ways. The band features Josh Sinton (baritone sax), Kirk Knuffke (cornet), Adam Hopkins (bass) and Tomas Fujiwara (drums). Their new Cuneiform double CD of Lacy music is called Beating The Teens. "Ideal Bread lays down a serious marker for the posthumous evolution of Steve Lacy's music." Point of Departure
