Noah P Records Live & Firehouse Season Concludes + Dave Douglas News
Preminger is planning to record the band's next CD at this gig with new songs based on the music of Muddy Waters, Lightnin' Hopkins, Skip James, John Lee Hooker and others. One should expect the music to be powerful, punchy, pungent with the memories of smoky roadhouses and musicians who pushed the borders of their sounds every night. The band will play 2 sets with the first starting at 8 p.m. For more information, go to thesidedoorjazz.com or call 860-434-0886.
Both these nights, the doors open at 7:30 p.m. with the first set at 8:30. Call the number above for more information.
The first set starts at 8:30 pm with a second set - separate admission - at 10 p.m.
For tickets to either or both shows, go to firehouse12.com or call 203-785-0468.

Guillaume De Machaut (1300 -1377) who specialized in both secular and sacred polyphony. Yet, what I have heard of this music, performed by an ensemble consisting of 15 musicians plus Mr. Douglas, it sounds fresh, full of lively improvisations and impressive interactions.
We listeners certainly are fortunate that Dave Douglas continues to follow his muse. Give a listen and then go the website to find out more.
