From series organizer Clifford Allen:
“For the second iteration of So What Do You Think? on Sunday April 24 we will be focusing on a few musicians local to the Kingston area. Trumpeter Arnold Hammerschlag I was aware of in NYC through his Skirl CD No Face No Name and he now calls Kingston home. He will be playing in a trio with guitarist Jim Yanda and bassist Rashaan Carter. Opening the night’s proceedings will be a solo performance by trombonist, electronic musician and composer Darius Christian, whose work I became aware of through that time-tested method of being neighbors. Small world!”
Awesome lineup means it should be a fun night!

“… a band with a profound sense of empathy, a thrilling knack for taking sonic chances, deep roots in the blues combined with an era-spanning avant-garde sensibility, and perhaps most importantly, a raw honesty that could only result from such long and enduring friendships.”

From the brilliant corners of the collective artistic psyche, A Silent Way takes us on a sonic journey of discovery that surprises, haunts, and transforms. Inspired by shaman sound traveler Clarence “Herb” Robertson, and brought into sharp focus by Ritual Music explorers Phil Haynes and Jim Yanda, this “quiet to riotous” trio takes us to unexpected and exquisite musical worlds. They breathe life into subconscious traditions that facilitate knowing home and our human community for the first time. Like Davis or Coleman before him – who jumped from acoustic to electronic universes – Jim Yanda both sheds his idiomatic clothing for A Silent Way and births fresh acoustic expression as he and his cohorts revel in true independent unity.” – CornerStoreJazz
