This past April the great RUSS GERSHON, of Either/Orchestra and Lookie Lookie joined us for the first time; along with revered Boston percussionist Syd Smart; limpid dancer Chien Hwe; power mover Emily Jerant-Hendrickson; drumming wiz from Italy via Berkeley, Giuseppe Paradiso; and lucky to have had the amazing lighting designer, Todd Sargent. The glorious singer, Gabriela Martina, joined us; as did the exquisite dance phenom and ZoeDance director, Callie Chapman; and floutist extraordinaire Matt Samolis! I forgot to mention in the credits the awesome Scott Getchell, who played flugelhorn that squealed in opening of the video above. Josh Rosen, the incredible jazz composer and keyboardist joined us, as did the dancer/poet/professor, Karen Klein, and finally, Catherine Musinsky, Tabula Rasa producer and director, danced, directed, and projected filters for Werner Grundl and Julie O’Neil‘s live video.
No one regretted coming.
