Laurels from the Press and Fellow Players

Allison Miller's "Boom Tic Boom" (with Jenny Scheinman, Myra Melford, and Todd Sickafoose) rounds out the fall half of our season on October 30.  More to come soon, but in the meantime, you can read all about her here.

If we linked to every interesting thing we found in the jazz blogosphere, we'd try your patience.  But here are two items we can't help passing along:

  • First, in "New Pilots at the Keyboard," New York Times music writer Nate Chinen singles out David Binney Quartet pianist David Virelles as someone who's gone "straight to the top of the class."
  • And in an interview with Ottawa Citizen music writer and blogger Peter Hum, 2009 MacArthur "Genius Grant" winner (and former RJA guest) Miguel Zenon holds forth on other contemporary alto saxophonists, including David Binney.  (Miguel's a big fan.)

Closer yet!

The David Binney Group will be here this Thursday, October 6 at 8 p.m.
in the Kate Buchanan Room at Humboldt State University. Tickets are
$15 general admission and $10 for students and seniors and are now
available at all of our outlets, including the Works in Eureka, and
Wildberries Market, Peoples Records and Wildwood Music in Arcata. You
can also purchase them online at
and at the door.

The David Binney Group workshop is at 10:00 a.m. on Friday the 13th in
room 131 of the HSU Music Building.

A reminder about the Kate Buchanan Room: When we get a big crowd in
there and things heat up, the AC kicks in (and we have no control over
it.) You should probably bring a sweater…

We'll see you Thursday!
