Photo Coverage: Clint Holmes Celebrates New CD With Birdland PerformancePhoto Coverage: Clint Holmes Celebrates New CD With Birdland Performance
by Stephen Sorokoff - Apr 18, 2017

The word Artist is never more accurately applied to an entertainer then when it is used to describe Clint Holmes.  Clint starts with a familiar song title on a blank music  page, and then goes on to create something you never thought that tune could become.   His vocal, jazz, acting ability, combined with his creativity cross every music red, blue, black and white music line you ever laid down.  Most of the audience at Jim Caruso's Broadway at Birdland Series were already 'educated consumers' at his performance celebrating the CD Release of 'Rendezvous'  last night.  However, for all, it was a reminder of what a truly great performer can brilliantly accomplish with the same 12 notes and combination of beats that all vocalists have at their disposal.   (more...)

Cellist Mariel Roberts to Launch CATOGRAPHY Solo Album, 5/19Cellist Mariel Roberts to Launch CATOGRAPHY Solo Album, 5/19
by BWW News Desk - Apr 11, 2017

Cartography, the second solo album by intrepid cellist Mariel Roberts, comes out Friday, May 19 on New Focus Recordings, with a 10 pm release show that evening at National Sawdust. Cartography features first recordings of dauntingly virtuosic pieces written for Roberts by four New York-based composers: Cenk Ergün, Davi? Brynjar Franzson,George Lewis, and Eric Wubbels, who joins her on piano for his gretchen am spinnrade. Inspired by Roberts' technical wizardry and interpretive élan, her collaborators have created music that takes the cello into uncharted realms, requiring intense concentration, razor-sharp precision, and almost superhuman endurance. Yet in Roberts' hands, the works transcend their technical demands to emerge as deeply moving meditations on time – the cartography of subjective human experience.  (more...)
