Music Around Town ~ November 15 – 21, 2010

November 15, 2010 at 3:09 pm (Uncategorized)

This seARTS benefit will showcase the diverse voice of the guitar as a performance instrument.  Audiences will be delighted to hear the depth and range of American fingerstyle guitar, and connect to the narration and warmth of the performers.  The diversity of the performances is inspiring, as Bonfield, Coryell, and Davison pick their way through music ranging from country blues, ragtime and folk, to traditional Celtic, jazz, and classical pieces.  The show carries audience members on an auditory and educational tour of the guitar that is both inspiring for aficionados and guitarists and approachable for newcomers to finger style guitar. Larry Coryell is one of the world’s acknowledged guitar masters. He has recorded more than 75 albums over the past 40 years as a bandleader, soloist and ‘featured accompanist’. Hailed by his legion of fans as one of “the guitar gods” in the late 1970s and as a “truly Renaissance musician who excels at all styles of playing”, he has also been christened as “a true pioneer of rock-jazz fusion” by the New York Times, and dubbed “the Godfather of Fusion” by Dan Ouellette of Down Beat Magazine. Ken Bonfield has toured nationally since 1994, has released 5 solo albums and 2 duo albums with violinist Joe Ebel, Steve Davison released his national debut “White River Suite” in 2010. Together, Bonfield and Davison are touring with Artistry of the Guitar.



Program Notes

Coriolan Overture
Beethoven wrote this highly popular composition in 1807 to accompany Heinrich Joseph von Collin’s now obscure drama.  The music depicts the story of Coriolanus, a banished Roman patrician who shamefully and tragically leads an army against Mother Rome.  As one of Beethoven’s most performed and recorded works, the overture has far outpaced its literary counterpart in fame and acclaim.

Piano Concerto No. 2
It is fitting, perhaps, for young Kadar Qian to be performing Chopin’s F Minor Piano Concerto as it is the youthful work of a great pianist who was himself a prodigy.  Chopin, born in Poland of French parents, began performing in public when he was 8 years old.  Composed when he was 20, Piano Concerto No. 2 was actually Chopin’s first.  It was labeled the second because it was the second to be published.  The music itself is magically expressive and typical of Chopin.

Symphony No. 4 in A (Italian Symphony)
Mendelssohn spent the years 1829 -1831 touring Europe which provided the inspiration for his Scottish Symphony, The Hebrides, and of course the Italian Symphony.    Writing from Rome to his equally musical sister Fanny about his work in progress, he said “It will be the jolliest piece I have ever done.”  Indeed it is a sunny work and evocative of the magical spirit of Italy.

I am wicked excited that the Monday night jam is back. If you happen to stop by you may get to hear the Bandit Kings, Inge Berge and who knows who may appear. During these jams you get some magical moments from musicians that are there to let loose with no planned agenda.

Thank you to Dan King for hosting this jam and to Fred Shrigley for making it possible.

Tuesday

Hi Folks,
Ken Parker here, happy to announce that Kinloch Nelson will be
returning to the Rhumb Line this Tuesday evening, November 15th, for a
one hour set from 8 to 9pm.

Kinloch is an amazing guiatrist with a completely unique approach.
He’s full of surprises and lots of fun.  No guitar player or fan of
guitar wizardry should miss this show!

Kinloch’s first appearance at the Rhumb Line started out with an
impromptu duo with host Bradley Royds, followed by a solo session that
set the house onfire.

From Mr. Dave Sags himself,
Welcome back the man who put the mental in instrumental: Mr. Bob Davis aka Johnny Carwash. He’s hot-roddin’ in with his Tele to tittilate you with his screamin’  oomph and pizazz, playin’ all your surfin favorites. I’m seasick already!
We also welcome back Mr. Gym Gwin, Fred‘s brother, who’s gonna get another job, I swear to gawd, if he could only get away from that evil conductor! And, of course, Greg T. and myself will be there, too. Surf’s up!
Try going over the bridge. It really doesn’t hurt. Anyhow, I’m  playing Friday nite at the Lyceum in Salem, once again with this really groovey jazz band called Jazzport. The room’s a terror! loud like airplane hanger, filled with amorphous divorcees of a certain age,ageing hipsters, and the slumming, overdressed youngsters looking for a mate.  But the music’s great! Somebody help me!
