Brooklyn, NY, native Steve Dalachinsky is well-known as a New York City "downtown poet" and is famed for his collaborations with creative musicians such as pianist Matthew Shipp, bassist William Parker, and saxophonist Rob Brown. Accompanying his poetry will be Mr. Fonda and saxophonist Gerhard Ullmann. Ms. Jenoure, who has recorded with the late clarinetist John Carter, is an accomplished musician and vocalist who lives in the Northampton, Massachusetts area. Closing the show will be the Quartet of pianist Stevens, drummer Schuller, bassist Fonda and multi-reed player Ullmann (you may know them better as Conference Call.)
