What makes The Cornelia Street Café a true New York City landmark, an epicurean destination, an artist's café that cultivates and inspires, and one of the few remaining Greenwich Village bastions for creative music, spoken word, art, theatre, cabaret and much more':
 
-For more than thirty years the Café has provided food for the soul as well as the body, with more than 700 performances a year covering everything from science to songwriting, from Russian poetry to Latin jazz, from theatre to cabaret.
 
-When the Café opened its doors on July 4th weekend, 1977, it was run by three artists, there was one room with a toaster-oven, a cappuccino machine and a refrigerator display case. Now, the three artists remain, but with two full kitchens and two full bars which serve more than thirty wines by the glass. There are three dining rooms, one with a working fireplace, and an audience and artist-friendly performance space.  And in the summer there is one of the Village's loveliest sidewalk cafes.
 
-Singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega got her start at the Café, as did Eve Ensler's "Vagina Monologues". Senator & presidential candidate Eugene McCarthy & attorney-activist William Kunstler have read their poetry; Dr. Oliver Sacks continues to read his prose. Nobel Laureate Roald Hoffmann presents a monthly Science Series; members of Monty Python & the Royal Shakespeare Company intermittently perform.
 
-The Cornelia Street Café represents a long and excellent past with the jazz scene in New York City.  One that extends from Sheila Jordan all the way to Paul Motian, and yet has plenty of room for up and coming artists who are redefining the modern vocabulary of what jazz improvisation is.  It is this unique quality of providing a space which encourages the contemporary and new, while keeping any eye on the past, that truly sets the Café apart.

ARUN RAMAMURTHY, violin AKSHAY ANANTAPADMANABHAN, mridangam, ASHVIN BHOGENDRA, vocals
Carnatic Music is the classical music of South India. Like its counterpart in the North, Carnatic music is based on raga & tala. An emphasis on rhythm in Carnatic compositions and improvisations lead to lively interaction between the musicians, an exciting and spontaneous element of the Carnatic tradition.
 
Tonight will be the first of a Carnatic Series at Cornelia Street Cafe. Arun Ramamurthy will be inviting artists monthly to share their musical interpretations with the Cornelia Street audience. Tuesday, February 15 Arun will be joined by Akshay Anantapadmanabhan on mridangam and Sriram Ramesh on kanjira. The second set will feature a widely respected and talented vocalist, Ashvin Bhogendra

THE CURTIS MACDONALD GROUP 
Curtis Macdonald, alto sax; Jeremy Viner, tenor sax; Chris Tordini, bass; Bobby Avey, piano; Jordan Perlson, drums
The Curtis Macdonald Group is an ensemble composed of world-class improvising musicians, and one of this group's greatest strengths is its freedom with original music. Curtis brings new material into the group's repertoire often and presents the ensemble with ideas for experimentation on top of musical forms. No two pieces are alike, each having a unique character of its own to draw from as inspiration. A cohesive overall sound unites the contrasting repertoire, lighting up a dramatic energy and paving the way for improvisational interactivity on stage and shared with the audience.  "Curtis is a saxophonist of note, one who is worthy of great recognition." -Greg Osby.  "He constantly continues to impress me." - Kenny Werner

DAN TEPFER/PAUL MOTIAN DUO 
Pianist Dan Tepfer invites legendary drummer Paul Motian to join him for an evening of duos. First coming to prominence in the late '50s with the pioneering trio of pianist Bill Evans, Motian has since worked in an array of contexts, and has led a number of groups. He is one of the most influential modern drummers, having played an important role in freeing the drummer from strict time-keeping duties. 29-year-old Dan Tepfer has been called "an exceptional young player who has made an indelible impact on the scene" by Time Out; he has achieved recognition for his voracious appetite, encompassing everything from notated music to free improvisation in contexts ranging from solo to full orchestra. Tepfer and Motian played together as part of the Lee Konitz quartet in 2009; this will be their second meeting.  "Brilliant... Dan Tepfer is a sharp young talent, rugged and emphatic . . .  A young pianist of exceptional poise who is drawn to the deeper currents of melody."- New York Times

Michael Blake - saxophones, Kresten Osgood - drums, Tony Scherr - guitar, Rob Jost - bass
Michael returns to the Cafe for a special set of music with some very good friends. Tony Scherr and Blake played together in Slow Poke and The Lounge Lizards. Tony's work as a bassist is formidable yet his impact as a songwriter/guitarist is practically legendary. On electric guitar, Scherr consistently manages to raise ones hair. Michael's history with Kresten Osgood isn't as lengthly but is equally prolific including a decades worth of recordings and tours. The Copenhagen based drummer has established himself as a visionary artist, producing albums with Oliver Lake, John Tchcai, Paul Bley, Yusef Laeef and Lonnie Smith. Joining them is the supportive and beloved bassist Rob Jost.
