LOUISE JENSEN plays alto sax & occasional vocals for The Home of Easy Credit and an amazing quartet with Peter Evans, Dan Peck and Tom Blancarte. She is immensely charming live and in a class of her own! Ms. Jensen is joined by a fine guitarist named ADAM CAINE who plays in odd named bands like Scurvy, Mysterium and The Moon (with Federico Ughi). For the second set, Ms. Jensen has organized a sax trio with the incredible DMG alumni sax wonder CHRIS PITSIOKOS and yet another swell, upcoming saxist named NICK LYONS! This should prove to be one of the most talked about sets of challenging new music of this year!
Those of you who are cool enough to appreciate weird vocal music will no doubt be familiar with former UK-based singer VIV CORRINGHAM, who is in a great trio with Charles Hayward called Monkey Puzzle (with two great CDs out) and played here in another wonderful duo with vocalist Anna Homler! Viv will be joined by MIA ZABELKA, an incredible violinist currently based in Vienna, whose recent duo disc with Nicola L. Hein on FMR is one of those unknown gems of the year! Ms. Zabelka has also worked with Lydia Lunch, Martin Philadelphy as well as being a member of By Zero, a Russian septet.
French vocalist EMILIE LESBROS has become an important part of the Downtown Scene since moving to NYC in 2013. Check out her singing with the Darius Jones Quartet (she featured on Mr. Jones’ great disc “Le Bébé De Brigitte” on Aum Fidelity), as well as working with Pascal Niggenkemper’s Vision 7 (excellent CD on Clean Feed). Ms. Lesbros has also collaborated with Barre Phillips, Craig Taborn, Benoit Delbecq, Marc Ducret & many others and records under the name Miss Elie. This will be a rare opportunity hear her perform solo.
No In-store performances on Sunday, December 25th (Christmas Day) and Sunday, January 1st, 2017 (New Years Day). DMG is closed on both days. Will will kick off the new year on Monday, January 2nd with Ben Goldberg
