New Residency Series – 2014 (curated by Brian Drye)

IBEAM Brooklyn presents a brand new residency series starting in January 2014 curated by IBEAM director and trombonist, Brian Drye.  Drawing from the robust talents of IBEAM’s membership community and beyond, each residency will feature musicians performing over three consecutive evenings and presents a unique opportunity for the artist to create new collaborations, present new work or simply prepare for an upcoming recording.  Check the calendar for all the details.  (also we just got a brand new bass amp!)

Upcoming Events


Thursday, April 24th 8:30 PM $10 Suggested Donation

Louie Belogenis – tenor and soprano sax
Russ Lossing-piano
Kenny Wollesen-drums

Improvising ensemble, RITE, comes to Ibeam Brooklyn for a night of explorations in sonic and melodic group improvisation. Three masters of sound and space take you on a sensuous musical journey.

“Stylistically, Lossing is,simply, a “space man”—like Thelonious Monk and Paul Bley,
letting the spaces between notes do the talking.”
-ICON Magazine

“Out of incredible emotional depths comes this human sorrowful howl from Louie Belogenis’ tenor, all feeling, all resonance, combining sadness with fear and anguish, so human, so human.” -Free Jazz Collective

Percussionist Kenny Wolleson performed on over 30 recordings during the 1990s and, as the decade progressed, gained increasing renown as a musician of astonishing versatility, skill, and ingenuity. He has recorded and toured with all kinds of musicians, from Tom Waits (Wolleson performs on Waits’ 1993 collaboration with William S. Burroughs, Black Rider), to Sean Lennon, to Ron Sexsmith (Wolleson performs on his second album, Other Songs). A founding member of the New Klezmer Trio, Wolleson is also all over N.Y.C.’s downtown jazz and avant-garde musicians’ recordings, and has been so active as to tour with Bill Frisell and Myra Melford in the same month.
