UNSEEN RAIN FESTIVAL presents Sumari, Pat Hall's Time Remembered Organ Group, and Harmolodic Monk
(Published: April 05, 2015)

TRIPLE RECORD-RELEASE EVENT
When: Sunday, April 12, 7PM-Sumari, 8PM-Pat Hall's Time Remembered Organ Group, 9PM-Harmolodic Monk
Where: ShapeShifter Lab 18 Whitwell Place, Brooklyn, NY 11215
Admission: $15.

The artist-directed independent label, Unseen Rain Records, is bold in concept, producing radically expansive recordings of innovative jazz and improvised music. UR's array of CDs and digital downloads have been hailed as "visionary" in the international media. The Unseen Rain Festival will feature three vastly different improvisational music ensembles that offered recent releases. The event unites them under the label's banner.

SUMARI: The evening will open with the "other-world art music" of Sumari. The channeling of free improv and global folk culture with a boundless sense of the new are the path coursed by Matt Lavelle (trumpet, flugelhorn, alto clarinet), Jack DeSalvo (cello, electric and acoustic guitars, mandola, banjo) and Tom Cabrera (drumset, dumbeq, bodhran, tar, riq, percussion). The band members individually have held ground with such noted avant jazz strongholds as Ronald Shannon Jackson's Decoding Society and the Bern Nix Quartet.

PAT HALL'S TIME REMEMBERED ORGAN GROUP: Trombonist Pat Hall, a veteran of Wadada Leo Smith's ensembles, will perform with the combo heard on his starkly original album "Time Remembered: a Tribute to Bill Evans". Hall's Time Remembered Organ Group will offer unique adaptations of Evans' immortal music. The album has been acclaimed by critics, celebrating the bold concept and arrangements of this jazz icon's compositions. Joining Hall are Greg "Organ Monk" Lewis (Hammond B3), Marvin Sewell (guitar) and Mike Campenni (drumset). Music, film on here http://tinyurl.com/qb24jp...

HARMOLODIC MONK: The evening will close with the duet of Matt Lavelle (trumpet, flugelhorn, alto clarinet) and John Pietaro (vibraphone, hand drums, frame drums, percussion) aka Harmolodic Monk. The pair perform the repertoire of Thelonious Monk, reconstructed by way of Ornette Coleman's music-liberating philosophy. The pedigree is there: Lavelle spent years studying with Coleman and still performs with Bern Nix; Pietaro is a mainstay of Karl Berger's Improvisers Orchestra. Harmolodic Monk's debut release, called "Disc of the Year" by several new music bloggers, compels listeners with blurred harmonies, stinging accents, crushes, soaring melodic lines and at least a little bit of the shock of the new.
