Peter Valera & The Jump Blues Band - BB King Blues Club & Grill
January 07, 2018 - New York

"Don't worry if you can't get a seat close to saxophonist Peter Valera. When he is busy blowing the blues, Valera is liable to leap off the stage and wade into the crowd, moving as fast as the music pouring out of his horn. But that's not surprising: This is not Muzak or easy-listening. This is get-up-and-move music, blues played in a white-hot fury, volume and energy cranked up all the way to 11. Backed by the soulful Jump Blues Band, Valera doesn't so much play the saxophone as let it sing, unleashing a range of emotions and experiences too rich and wonderful for mere words to convey. Experience it yourself when this remarkable musician -- who just released his first record Jump Blues heats things up at Lucille's Grill at B.B. King Blues Club."

Gaya Feldheim Schorr Septet - The Cornelia Street Cafe
January 07, 2018 - New York

Born in the heart of Tel - Aviv, jazz musician and vocalist Gaya Feldheim- Schorr was introduced to music at home. Her mother, a multi-media artist, brought her up to be highly receptive to diversity and acquainted with a multitude of musical genres and eras, all coming to form the musical fiber of her artistic palate. Drawing from her vast repertoire and wide ranging skillset, Gaya is creating her own space in the shifting and unrelenting flow of the New York jazz scene. Through her unique tastes and her deft arranging skills, Gaya creates projects that both defy classification and celebrate great musical traditions. She takes on various musical matter from pieces she has felt connected to at different points in her life, spanning classical, jazz, singer songwriter, and indie rock, and reimagines them both through new orchestration, arrangement and improvisation. Her current project presents an arch surrounding a recurring theme of Benjamin Britten's choral work "A Ceremony of Carols", with jazz standards, Israeli folk, and contemporary songwriter pieces interspersed.

Huntertones brings people together around the globe with fun, imaginative and fearless music. Their high energy, horn-driven sound fuses inspired improvisation and adventurous composition melding jazz, funk, rock, and soul. Adding depth and contrast to their live set, Huntertones shift from a dynamic six-piece ensemble to a trio featuring saxophone, sousaphone, and beat-boxing, keeping their listeners' eyes and ears open at every turn. Huntertones formed in Columbus, Ohio at The Ohio State University and hosted their first shows at a house on Hunter Avenue. They have since relocated to New York City, released two albums, and toured North and South America, Europe and Africa -- experiences which have pushed the band to expand even further, stylistically. What started as a group of classmates finding a voice has developed into a highly collaborative group of musicians traveling, sharing, and growing together.

Innov Gnawa / Edmar Castaneda Quartet & Gregoire Maret: Harp vs. Harp - Joe's Pub at The Public
January 13, 2018 - New York

Innov Gnawa is a young musical collective dedicated to exploring Morocco's venerable gnawa music tradition in the heart of New York City. Formed in the summer of 2014 by Moroccan expat Samir LanGus, the group draws on the considerable talents and expertise of Hassan Ben Jaafer, a Maâlem, or master gnawa musician, originally from Fes, Morocco. Under the guidance of Ben Jaafer, Innov has delved deep into the roots and rituals of gnawa music, and made a big splash in NYC, playing some of the city's most prestigious rooms including Lincoln Center, Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn Bowl, Terminal 5, Celebrate Brooklyn as well around the US at Coachella, Red Rocks Amphitheater, and The Cleveland Museum of Art. For the uninitiated, gnawa music is the ritual trance music of Morocco's black communities, originally descended from slaves and soldiers once brought to Morocco from Northern Mali and Mauritania. Often called "The Moroccan Blues", gnawa music has a raw, hypnotic power that's fascinated outsiders as diverse as writer/composer Paul Bowles, jazz giant Randy Weston, rock god Jimi Hendrix, and the contemporary artist Bonobo. The music is utterly singular, played on an array of un... (read more)

Ken Jacobs & Aki Onda: 'a Primer in Sky Socialism' with Alan Licht / Susan Alcorn Solo - ISSUE Project Room
January 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

Saturday, January 13th, ISSUE is pleased to present a screening of Brooklyn-born avant-garde film pioneer Ken Jacobs' 3D film A Primer in Sky Socialism, presented alongside the premiere of a film score by Aki Onda. Enfolding the broad collaborative spirit of Jacobs' Nervous Magic Lantern (staged with Onda at ISSUE in 2012), Onda's new score develops their uncanny audio-visual overlap and filmic dialogue -- one that exists between the found sonic interventions of Onda's field recording practices and the ghostlike illusions, visual obfuscations, and abstract images existing in Jacob's projection techniques. The new score is performed live in collaboration with musician and writer Alan Licht, who has extensively collaborated with Onda, most notably on their collaborative LPs Everydays and Lost City (also with Loren Connors). To celebrate the opening of ISSUE's 2018 season, Baltimore-based pedal steel guitarist Susan Alcorn also performs solo before the film, showcasing her signature extension of the instrument's emotional strengths and microtonal possibilities -- existing in parallel to the evening's spectral subject matter. Premiered at the Museum of Modern Art in May 2013, A P... (read more)

Vijay Iyer - Birdland
Through January 13, 2018 - New York

Keyboardist-composer Vijay Iyer's energized sequence of ECM releases has garnered copious international praise. Yet his fifth for the label since 2014 – Far From Over, featuring his dynamically commanding sextet – finds Iyer reaching a new peak, furthering an artistry that led The Guardian to call him "one of the world's most inventive new-generation jazz pianists" and The New Yorker to describe him as "extravagantly gifted… brilliantly eclectic." Far From Over features this sextet of virtuoso improvisers – with horn players Graham Haynes, Steve Lehman and Mark Shim alongside rhythm partners Stephan Crump and Tyshawn Sorey – leveraging a wealth of jazz history even as it pushes boldly forward. The music ranges from the thrillingly explosive ("Down to the Wire," "Good on the Ground") to the cathartically elegiac ("For Amiri Baraka," "Threnody"), with melodic hooks, entrancing atmosphere, rhythmic muscle and an elemental spirit all part of the allure.
