Can't Keep an Improvisations Series Down

The snow has begun to melt, most streets in the area are passable (if a bit skinny in places) and it's time to think about other joys of life besides re-stocking the larder and shoveling out the mailbox.

So many shows in the Connecticut area were canceled this past weekend due to Storm Charlotte/Nemo (so big a storm it had 2 names) but one that stood out (for me) was the Sunday February 10 show at Real Art Ways.  The "Improvisations" series, curated by Stephen Haynes (up there on the left) and Joe Morris, had scheduled a show with percussionist/trombonist Tyshawn Sorey (Wesleyan grad).  It's good to know that they have rescheduled for this coming Sunday (2/17), same place (RAW is at 56 Arbor Street in Hartford) and same time (3 p.m.) Who really knows what the weekend weather will be but this is a musical event that is sure to involve fiery interactions and fun exchanges.  To find out more, go to or call at 860-232-1006.

Another show that has been rescheduled is one that The Buttonwood Tree, 605 Main Street, had planned for Friday February 9 featuring pianist Alon Nechustan (pictured left) and his Trio.  That show is now set for Saturday May 4 at 8 p.m.  By that time, the Israeli-born composer will have 2 new recordings set to be released.  For more information, go to
