Stanley Clarke Band - Blue Note
Through November 19, 2017 - New York

Bassist Stanley Clarke was barely out of his teens when he exploded into the jazz world in 1971. Fresh out of the Philadelphia Academy of Music, he arrived in New York City and immediately landed jobs with famous bandleaders such as Horace Silver, Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, Pharaoh Saunders, Gil Evans, Stan Getz and a budding young pianist-composer named Chick Corea. All of these musicians immediately recognized Clarke's ferocious dexterity and complete musicality on the acoustic bass. Not only was he an expert at crafting bass lines and functioning as a timekeeper – in keeping with his instrument's traditional role – but the young prodigy also possessed a sense of lyricism and melody distilled from his bass heroes Charles Mingus, Scott LaFaro and others, as well as non-bass players like John Coltrane. Clarke envisioned the bass as a viable, melodic solo instrument positioned at the front of the stage rather than in a background role, and he was uniquely qualified to take it there. The vision became a reality when Clarke and Corea formed the seminal electric jazz/fusion band Return To Forever. RTF was a showcase for each of the quartet's strong musical p... (read more)

- ICP Museum
Through November 19, 2017 - New York

How has the act of remembering—and forgetting—been transformed in the digital age? Photography's relationship with the concept of memory stretches its entire history and includes its every iteration. Only now has the distribution of photography exploded with newfound ubiquity, ushering in a paradigm shift that bears semblance to that of the Gutenberg press. Photography's various forms have converged onto a point of accessibility where what was once a luxury is now a presupposition. As the degrees of separation between people decrease, so do those between past, present, and future. To remember is to engage with all three, and to create is to make them tangible. The collective consciousness of humankind speaks a visual language, and photography is poised, now more than ever, to upend the very notion of what it means to create.

Kandace Springs (Late Show) - City Winery
November 20, 2017 - New York

KANDACE SPRINGS Every so often a new singer emerges who's able to assimilate multiple musical touchstones and still come off sounding remarkably fresh and unburdened by the past. Kandace Springs is one of those artists. The 27-year-old, Nashville-based singer, songwriter and pianist counts such stylists as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Roberta Flack and Norah Jones as her heroes, but as evidenced by her sparkling full-length Blue Note Records debut, Soul Eyes, Springs mimics none of them. Instead Springs allows her comely alto to become a conduit that touches upon soul, jazz and pop while transforming those aforementioned influences into a personalized sound that reveals itself effortlessly. "The artists who have inspired me the most all sang so naturally," Springs says. "That helped me find my own sound." Springs' journey to discovering her uniqueness didn't happen overnight. In fact, her 2014 self-titled debut EP had a decidedly contemporary R&B/hip-hop bent with production by Pop & Oak (Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Miguel). The EP was incredibly well-received and led to TV performances on Late Show With David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Tonight Show St... (read more)

"When I was in high school," he recalls, "I heard The Weavers' concert at Carnegie Hall where they sang songs such as 'If I Had a Hammer,' and 'Wasn't That a Time.' It was inspiring, and it showed me the extraordinary effect that music of conscience can have." That lesson launched Peter on a lifelong path that is now, perhaps, in its most vital phase.

Pablo Ziegler & Lara St. John: Piazzolla's Central Park Concert featuring the Pablo Ziegler Quartet for New Tango - (Le) Poisson Rouge
November 21, 2017 - New York

On September 6, 1987, tango grand-maestro Astor Piazzolla gave a concert at the peak of his career in New York City's Central Park, resulting in what many critics consider to be the definitive live recording of Piazzolla with his ensemble.

Restoring the George and Beyond: Sgr Meets Public Benefit - AIA New York | Center for Architecture
Through November 21, 2017 - New York

The George Washington Bridge, opened in 1931, has begun a $1.9-billion state-of-good-repair (SGR) program to rehabilitate the facility, scheduled to be completed in 2025. One of the principal components of this rehabilitation includes the replacement of the suspender ropes that support the bridge decks from the main cables. As a result of this program, new access paths to the bridge's main pedestrian walkways will be constructed. The challenge to respond to the SGR requirements created an opportunity to create substantial improvements for pedestrians and bicyclists who use the bridge for both passage and as a destination in its own right, as well as for the neighborhoods that interface with the access points. The presentation will illustrate how the conservation of transportation infrastructure can serve not just to maintain facilities, but to actually improve them. Speakers: Jaqueline Hanley, AIA, Principal Architect, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Signe Nielsen, RLA, FASLA, Principal, Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects, P.C.

Lloyd Cole - City Winery
November 25, 2017 - New York

Lloyd Cole, though he'd never be so gauche as to suggest it himself, has enjoyed something of a renaissance in 2013. He released his new 'career best' album 'Standards' in the summer. He also found himself with star billing on the UK's finest music TV show 'Later With Jools Holland'. He has been playing to sell-out houses across Europe ever since. Cole played his first electric shows in a decade in January 2014 and the 'never ending' solo acoustic tour resumed in March, crossing Europe, New Zealand and Australia. But still the album was not released in North America. At last this has been put right and 'Standards' will be released on Omnivore Recordings on September 30th. Cole expects to play a few select US shows in the fall with a fuller schedule in early 2015. Recorded in late 2012 to early 2013 in Los Angeles, New York and at his home in Easthampton, Massachusetts, 'Standards' is produced by Lloyd and mixed by maverick German producer Olaf Opal. All songs are by Lloyd Cole apart from 'California Earthquake', which was written by American folk artist John Hartford.

Over the course of a multifaceted career spanning four decades, Grammy and Tony Award- winning jazz giant Dee Dee Bridgewater has ascended to the upper echelon of vocalists, putting her unique spin on standards, as well as taking intrepid leaps of faith in re-envisioning jazz classics. Ever the fearless voyager, explorer, pioneer and keeper of tradition, the three-time Grammy-winner recently won the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album for Eleanora Fagan (1915-1959): To Billie With Love From Dee Dee. Bridgewater's career has always bridged musical genres. She earned her first professional experience as a member of the legendary Thad Jones/Mel Louis Big Band, and throughout the 70s she performed with such jazz notables as Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon and Dizzy Gillespie. After a foray into the pop world during the 1980s, she relocated to Paris and began to turn her attention back to Jazz. Signing with the Universal Music Group as a producer (Bridgewater produces all of her CDs), Bridgewater released a series of critically acclaimed titles beginning with Keeping Tradition in 1993.

Jack Martin Rogers - Anita Rogers Gallery
Through January 02, 2018 - New York,

Eddie Martinez Studio Wall - The Drawing Center
Through February 04, 2018 - Soho

Eddie Martinez's drawing practice blends seamlessly with his daily life as the New York-based artist carries pen and paper with him on the subway, to the doctor's office, and to restaurants and lectures, among other work and leisure events. Stylistically evocative of mid-century abstraction, Martinez's drawings bring their own complexity, plugging a rotating cast of characters into raw, vigorously-drawn landscapes: cartoon ducks, oversized eyes, coiled snakes, and anthropomorphic blocks of color are among his itinerant motifs. In his Brooklyn studio, Martinez maintains a "drawing wall," wherein sketches ranging in size, shape, and material serve simultaneously as a source of inspiration and a data bank for the artist's incessant imaginative output. The Drawing Center's forthcoming exhibition Eddie Martinez: Studio Wall, will bring the drawing wall to the museum. The artist will paper the gallery with thousands of sketches that he will change throughout the exhibition's run. In addition, several large drawings and paintings will be hung on top of these sketches allowing viewers to observe the interconnection between all aspects of Martinez's practice.

Susan York Foundation - The Drawing Center
Through October 18, 2018 - Soho

For the second long-term installation presented in The Drawing Center's Lab Corridor, Santa Fe-based artist Susan York will create a site-specific installation that references the internal structure of the museum's 35 Wooster Street building. Using graphite as a sculptural rather than a two-dimensional medium, York will create replicas of parts of the museum's foundation: eroded concrete piers that protrude above the museum's ground floor. York's long-term installation will initiate an expanded field of activity at The Drawing Center, pointing to new opportunities for exploring drawing as an interactive and socially-minded practice. Additionally, by bringing attention to The Drawing Center's building, York's installation will generate opportunities for discussion about the importance of museums continuing as public spaces with permanent, physical presence
