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.
