The Wall Street Journal’s Will Friedwald had this to say about Jonathan Batiste in a preview of last week’s Target Free Thursday concert at the David Rubenstein Atrium: “Like his piano contemporary Gerald Clayton, Jonathan Batiste is the scion of a great jazz family who blew into town (Mr. Clayton from L.A., Mr. Batiste from the Big Easy) and all of a sudden is everywhere: playing in bands, accompanying singers (particularly the late Abbey Lincoln) and leading his own superlative trio. At 24, Mr. Batiste is already a master of modern jazz as well as the great New Orleans party piano playboys like Professor Longhair, James Booker and Doctor John. His trio is the perfect aural component for this indoor-outdoor space, and it’s a free concert to boot.” Perfect it was…only the trio actually turned into a full-fledged nine-piece band, and the SRO crowd at the Atrium got to hear some extra-special music making. Here’s a sample. Check out what’s coming up at the Atrium at www.LincolnCenter.org/Atrium.
Musician Dave Eggar and dance troupe Hammerstep kicked up their heels in the David Rubenstein Atrium on Saturday at this month’s Meet the Artist Saturday. They’ll be back in the Atrium tomorrow night at 8 for Target Free Thursday, so if you’re thinking of “stepping out” yourself, this show looks like the perfect thing.
The 1990s downtown New York aesthetic, turned on its ear. Flat Earth Society, hailing from Belgium, has every bit of the circusy, genre-jumping, soundtrack-esque, Raymond Scott–like, smirky moodiness that characterizes the Knitting Factory diaspora. Where that sound can sometimes turn snarky and sarcastic, the group wisely remains earnest and open. The 15-strong band, weighted toward lower horns and brass, is punchy and dynamic, playfully romping through clarinetist and leader Peter Vermeersch’s charts.
They’ll be performing in the David Rubenstein Atrium as a part of Target Free Thursdays on May 19. Swing by at 8:30 pm for a FREE show that’s sure to be fun.
This week’s Target Free Thursday is a part of our annual Essentially Ellington festival, presented in collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center. An all-star combo of Essentially Ellington alumni plays the music of Duke Ellington, celebrating the 16th anniversary of the annual jazz education event that invites select high school jazz bands from across North America to spend three days immersed in workshops, rehearsals, jam sessions, and performances at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
Enjoy this Leonard Lopate interview with Wynton Marsalis, artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center, about last year’s Essentially Ellington festival. Then come to the Atrium this Thursday night and enjoy the concert for free!
Basya Schechter of Pharaoh’s Daughter presents her settings of the transcendent Yiddish poetry of the revered Jewish philosopher and civil rights activist, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel. Basya is inventive, ethereal and powerful in her contemporary arrangements complete with string section, piano, percussion, harmonies and video translation projections by David Tirosh. The combination of Basya’s majestic voice, Heschel’s powerful poetry, and some of the finest musicians in the NYC Downtown carries us through a moving performance.
Blending a psychedelic sensibility and a pan-Mediterranean sensuality, Basya Schechter leads her band through swirling Hasidic chants, Mizrachi and Sephardi folk-rock, and spiritual stylings filtered through percussion, flute, strings and electronica. Her sound has been cultivated by her Hasidic music background and a series of trips to the Middle East, Africa, Israel, Egypt, Central Africa, Turkey, Kurdistan and Greece.
This week’s Target Free Thursday brings SYBARITE5 with their new program, The Shuffle Effect. The traditional set program list is replaced with an iPod holding the group’s repertoire. The concert program will be determined live from the stage, as the players set the iPod to shuffle and play whatever piece shows up on the screen. From Radiohead to Mozart, this group of talented musicians has changed the perception of chamber music performance. From the moment their bows hit the strings, SYBARITE5 redefines the rules and sets a new standard in audience experience.
See them at the David Rubenstein Atrium at 8:30 pm this Thursday. No matter what the iPod dictates, it’s sure to be a fantastic performance.
