Elena and Khabu Duo (8:30)
Elena Camerin, voice
Khabu Doug Young, baritone guitar, ukulele, cavaquinho

The duo of Elena and Khabu explores originals composed specifically for this instrumentation incorporating quirky lyrics written in Italian and English, odd time signatures, extended and 12-toneesque harmonies, and soaring instrumental melodies. The wide range differences between Khabu’s baritone guitar, ukulele, and cavaquinho and Elena’s voice accentuate a colorful palette of musical timbres and textures inspiring endless pathways of improvisational expression.

Wonton Lapse (10PM)
Jacob Varmus, trumpet & cornet
Leonard Thompson, piano

Prompted by a child’s curiosity for pressing beyond the conventions of music, Wonton Lapse exists as an heretofore unknown plane in the space-time continuum of pork-stuffed noodles. Connected series of miniature improvised pieces are thoughtful and deliberate answers to children’s questions and demands i.e., ‘go higher’, ‘play only the 1st button’, ‘play a snake’, ‘how far is that piece?’  Thru such inquiries they push forth into a realm of questioning yet unanswerable dream music, where for a designated length of time there are no wontons, at all, not anywhere.

Emily Hope Price sings and plays the cello and is also a songwriter, arranger, and film composer and can also be seen/heard performing in a band called Pearl and the Beard.

80 years Barre Phillips / 15 years Trio

Urs Leimgruber saxophone
Jacques Demierre piano
Barre Phillips double bass

Spontaneous, direct, together. Without any preparation, conferring, or plan- ning. Faced with the same challenge as on the very first day they met – sculpting sounds in an empty room. AlI these three musicians can contribute is their decades of experience in free improvisation and their own personal styles of musical expression – no more and no less.

For the past fifteen years the American double bass player Barre Phillips and the two Swiss musicians Urs Leimgruber and Jacques Demierre have been coming together to play on an irregular basis and have already chalked up something in the region of two hundred concerts.

All three have unlocked a whole new dimension of their instruments and it is this that gives them their unmistakable sound. Every time they get together, their music is simultaneously reinvented and carried forward. At that point their musical styles either become more densely interwoven or evaporate until verging on silence.
