The Cornelia Street Café Hosts an Evening of Music, 5/18

The Cornelia Street Café (29 Cornelia St.) hosts an evening tonight of music with the Double Sharps at 6 p.m. and with Hibakusha Stories at 8:30 p.m. There is a $7 cover for Double Sharps and a $10 cover for Hibakusha Stories.

The Double Sharps (who serve as the house band for Golda Solomon's "Po'Jazz" series at the Cornelia Street Cafe), play a set of their own. The group is a mix of students from the New York area who will deliver a creative night of swing, funk, and a touch of classic rock-influenced jazz. There will be a few surprise guests. "Double Sharps: On Their Own" include Dan Lipsitz on Sax, Pierre Piscitelli on Piano and Electric Organ, Nathaniel Schroeder on Bass, and Bomi Choi on Drums.

Saxophonist and composer Sam Sadigursky presents a collaboration with Hibakusha Stories, which passes the legacy of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to a new generation, and empowers them with tools to build a world free of nuclear weapons. Several of the survivors of the bombings will tell their stories as part of a month-long visit to NYC, followed by a set of music by Sadigursky. "Hibakusha Stories" include Sam Sadigursky on reeds, Kris Davis on piano, Aidan O'Donell on bass, Damion Reed on drums and special guest, vocalist Becca Stevens.Information can be found www.hibakushastories.org and www.samsadigursky.com.
