DAN PETERSON a composer & woodwind player from Philadelphia, is best known for his leadership roles in his groups Truth & Consequence and The Bottomfeeders, his 2 CDs “The Mythic Belief” and “5 Simple Worlds…”, and as one of he presenters behind the 2000-2004 Collective Voices Festival. He has had long-standing sideman gigs with Odean Pope and Bobby Zankel’s Warriors of the Wonderful Sound and collaborated or performed with Leah Stein, Toshi Makihara, EgoPo Theater Company, Billy Harper, Dave Burrell, Dave Liebman, Marty Erhlich and Ravi Coltrane. His recent release “5 Simple Worlds…” received a Subito grant for performance and has generated excitement among local writers. Writing in the Philadelphia Weekly, Katharine Silkaitis called the album “joyous, engaging, and inspiring… able to be appreciated by the master artist and lay fan alike.” In addition to his life as a musician and music educator, Dan is also a talented chef. Before moving to Philadelphia, he worked in restaurants in Massachusetts, New Mexico, and Louisiana, including the critically acclaimed Bistro at Maison de Ville in New Orleans’s French Quarter. From 2004-2006, Dan worked at the legendary South Philly brunch spot Carman’s Country Kitchen. Joining Dan for tonight’s performance are drummer DOUG HIRLINGER www.myspace.com/doughirlinger and bassist MATT STEIN.
JASON STEIN is one of the few musicians to make the bass clarinet his primary instrument. Born in 1976 and originally from Long Island, New York., he studied at Bennington College with Charles Gayle and Milford Graves, and at the University of Michigan with Donald Walden and Ed Sarath. In 2005, Stein relocated to Chicago and has since recorded for such labels as Delmark, Atavistic, 482 Music and Clean Feed. Stein has performed throughout the US and Europe and has had the opportunity to perform with a number of exciting local and international musicians including: Michael Moore, Jeff Parker, Rudi Mahall, Ken Vandermark, Rob Mazurek, Jeb Bishop, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Nate McBride, Jack Wright, and Peter Brotzman.
JACK WRIGHT is one of a very small group of musicians in North America that has played improvised music exclusively since the 1970s. After teaching at Temple University in the 1960s and leaving academia in the early 1970s to engage in radical politics and community organizing, by the late 1970s Wright was directing his energies into music. Through years of near constant touring, often performing for audiences in cities and towns where improvised music had never before been heard, he came to be regarded as something of an underground legend. He has deliberately eschewed the conventions and socio-aesthetic limitations of musical careerism to pursue his own vision. Although his de-professionalized approach sets him apart from most musicians at his level of accomplishment, his art has always grown, expanded, and synthesized new information. He is unquestionably an original and virtuosic saxophonist, a master improviser who is deeply lyrical, with humor never far away. For more on Wright, visit www.springgardenmusic.com. Wright will be joined tonight by bassist DAMON SMITH www.balancepointacoustics.com/damon.php and drummer MIKE SZEKELY http://www.myspace.com/michaelszekely.
