Neiman, Oren The Oren Neiman Quartet Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Guitarist Oren Neiman’s music is both innovative and in the forefront of today’s jazz styles, as well as being celebrated for his technical precision. His compositions explore a combination of Jazz sensibility with Middle Eastern rhythms and melody. Oren has regularly performed with his quartet in NY venues like The Bitter End, Detour, Joe’s Pub, The 55 Bar, Cornelia St. Cafe and Makor, as well as touring nationally and internationally (most recently Spain, Canada and Israel). Oren was also an Artist in Residence at the 92nd St. Y, and has received an Arts Alive project grant from Westchester Arts Council. “Neiman’s new recording (Frolic and Detour), with a new quartet, is quite a unique statement. It is predominantly Jazzy, but it also touches upon ethnic themes and rhythmic patterns, often using odd meters and unusual harmony. Also the unusual sound blend of the guitar / trumpet combination gives the listener the impression of hearing something innovative and rarely attempted before.” - Adam Baruch www.jazzis.com For a more detailed description of the band,sets, plus musical examples(Electronic press kit) please see www.sonicbids.com/theorenneimanquartet

Topics covered include the unique ways in which people around the world live (past and present), and perhaps most importantly, the many similarities that we all share.

Durst, James WORK O' THE WEAVERS: Celebrating America's Pioneering Folk Quartet History,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
WORK O' THE WEAVERS celebrates Pete Seeger's lifetime legacy, Lee Hays' (1914-1981) Centenary & The WEAVERS' inestimable contribution to our collective musical consciousness. Beginning in 1950 with their 2-sided hit, Tzena Tzena & Goodnight Irene, The WEAVERS (Pete Seeger, Lee Hays, Ronnie Gilbert & Fred Hellerman) ignited popular interest in folk music. With a freshness & exuberance not heard before, they enjoyed surprising success until being caught up in the Cold War anti-communist witchhunts of McCarthyism and HUAC, blacklisted & driven from the stage in 1952 at the height of their popularity. Their triumphant 1955 Carnegie Hall reunion concert & Vanguard LP of the event gave heart to a generation, kindling the 'folk boom' of the '50s & '60s, providing a foundation upon which virtually every subsequent folksinger would build. WORK O' THE WEAVERS recalls their timely story & timeless songs. Faithful to the Weavers' original arrangements, WORK O' THE WEAVERS' (James Durst, David Bernz, Martha Sandefer & Mark Murphy) includes the beloved songs, as well as some the Weavers might be singing today. An edifying narrative interweaves throughout, supported by PowerPoint visuals. More than a tribute, it's an affectionate homáge. Rousing, refreshing & relevant!
