The Shayna Dulberger Quartet & The Kit Demos Flame-Tet

All compositions are written and arranged by Shayna Dulberger for herself (upright bass), Yoni Kretzmer (tenor sax), Chris Welcome (guitar) and Carlo Costa (drums).

Lewis Porter-Phil Scarff Group

In a rare Boston appearance, New York-based pianist, composer, educator, and author Lewis Porter combines forces with saxophonist and composer Phil Scarff in this dynamic new quartet. From jazz standards to contemporary treatments of traditional Indian classical fare, and from melodic originals to free-wheeling improvisation, East emerges from West and the audacious emerges from the contemplative.

Kevin Harris Project

When the unmistakable musical influences of Thelonious Monk, Danilo Perez, and Charlie Parker intersect with J.S. Bach, Scott Joplin, and the folkloric rhythms of Cuba, could one possibly conceptualize the celebration that occurs at that intersection? Boston-based jazz pianist Kevin Harris plays a distinctive combination of traditional and contemporary music that seeks to explore such a crossroads. Jazztimes magazine says “Harris possesses a spare style and gentle touch” and the Boston Globe quotes that “Harris has worked to refine the creative push and pull of a music that demands it.”
