"Mr. Rzewski, who at 78 is flinty and opinionated yet warm, is one of many great American composers whom a vast majority of America has never heard, or even heard of. But of that group, he may be the one with the most to say to us now." — Zachary Woolfe,The New York Times, May 2016. Read the full article here.

Frederic Rzewski has entitled this program Music of Resistance (piano pieces based on great revolutionary songs of the 20th century). See the tentative concert program at www.tigertail.org.

Jazz and guitar legend James Blood Ulmer is among the most distinctive and influential free jazz electric guitarists to emerge in the past four decades. He has worked and recorded with Ornette Coleman, Art Blakey, Joe Henderson, Arthur Blythe, David Murray, Ronald Shannon Jackson, Vernon Reid and George Adams as bandleader and sideman. Ulmer is recognized as a central figure in the post-fusion movements of 1970s and 1980s jazz. Yet within this experimental framework, his guitar playing and songwriting incorporate blues, funk, and rock idioms, making it difficult to categorize his innovative musical forms.

"The missing link between Jimi Hendrix and Wes Montgomery on one hand, between P-Funk and Mississippi Fred McDowell on the other." Greg Tate, Village Voice

Tour Bach’s Organ World, July 17-28

Noted organist Lee Ridgway leads this year’s tour to cities and organs with connections to J. S. Bach, as well as other organs of historic importance. The tour is centered around Dresden, Leipzig, and Berlin, with day trips to Naumburg, Halle, Altenburg, Störmthal, Wittenberg, and Tangermünde. Organs include instruments by Silbermann, Scherer, Ladegast, and Sauer. Of particular importance are organs by Hildebrant and Trost which Bach played and knew well.

The tour, of which this is the 5th edition, originated with Quentin and Mary Murrell Faulkner, who had to withdraw for personal reasons. They asked Lee to take over the tour in their stead. Lee participated in two previous tours, and has extesnive experience with historic organs, including those on the tour.

Time is built into the schedule for organists to play the instruments, as well as hear about their history and restoration. But the tour is not only for organists! It is for anyone interested in historic cities, churches, and organs, and anyone interested in seeing the magnificent attractions of eastern Germany reborn since reunification. Plenty of time is in the schedule for sightseeing.

The well-organised tour includes stays in 4-star hotels, most meals, and travel by deluxe motorcoach. Accompanying the tour is English-speaking German guide, Lothar Mohlmann, who also assisted with the previous four tours.

For full details on the tour, see the Concept Tours web site at: http://www.concept-tours.com/tours/cultural-group-individual/
