Upcoming...Incoming...NYC area: URB ALT 2007 Finale + Brandon Ross' Theorema + Hanifah Walidah's U People

Well if all you wanted for Christmas or Kwanzaa, or Boxing Day (Canada) was some great music you got it!

Pianist/composer Vijay Iyer (right) has been curating the shows at the Stone for the month of December, and he's included a number of past collaborators and old friends.

Wednesday, December 26, 10pm
Drummer Qasim Naqvi (who played with Iyer on some Burnt Sugar Arkestra recordings) Taylor Ho Bynum (trumpet, cornet) and Brandon Ross (guitar)

Thursday, December 27, 10pm
Guillermo E. Brown (who played with Iyer and Mike Ladd at their Still Life with Commentator, BAM production last year) on electronics, voice and drums plus special guests.


Friday, December 28, 8pm @ The Shrine

URB ALT 4.5 : Every goodbye ain't gone, turn out for the last URB ALT jam of the year! And it's FREE! URB ALT returns June 2008.

Singer/songwriter Felili, who has a voice like liquid amber--golden and languid like a summer sunrise, with little hidden textural treats-- and an intriguing way of working the harmonies in her piano-based melodies will play a set. Following her will be the ongoing mystery that is MuthaWit--never know what you'll hear just know you shouldn't miss it! The night's emphasis will be on improvisation...

Some special guest artist are also slated to appear, and there'll be a jamfest closing out the show. MuthaWit leader & URB ALT co-organizer Boston Fielder has invited everyone to join the jam:

"Any and all of you that play/sing/chant/dance/orate are welcome to join us onstage during the jam session and do your THANG. This show is about YOU(audience and artists) and thanking YOU for your support in 2007."

Saturday, December 29, Door: 8pm - Show: 9pm @ Solomon's Porch Cafe
U People Film Fundraiser

performances from the women of the U People Soundtrack
Hanifah Walidah
Shelley Nicole
Honey Larochelle
Gloria Bigelow

Donations of $50 or more are tax-deductible. Fiscal Sponsor: Women Make Movies

Hanifah & Olive are some kind of marketers, they've got the website, the podcast, the Myspace, the Myspace Videos, etc, etc, and they are working the networks. This fundraiser is to help them with festival fees, particularly the international ones. Since the dollar has gotten increasingly weak (e.g. USD 1 = GBP .50, yikes!) those fees are fairly formidable. This promises to be off tha chain, as the folks say.

$10 online
$15 at the door
