Brandon Terzic – Oud and Ngoni * Rufus Cappadocia – Cello * Matt Kilmer – Percussion
This trio explores the whole spectrum of the Melodic, improvisational, and rhythmic qualities of the Middle East and Africa and places it firmly in the American jazz/blues traditions, seeking the most expansive outlets and energy to create the most openness and dynamic freedom in the music. But most importantly the music just flat our burns and swings its tail off, with percussionist Matt Kilmer’s unshakeable groove leading the way. Cappadocia’s 5 string cello playing is also heavily groove based with explosiveness akin to the electric guitar, while Terzic’s own playing is exploratory and probing but just the same completely rhythmic in its conception. Not to be missed.
Jodi Shaw is a Canadian-born poet/performer with a unique voice and vision. Her music has been described as “hauntingly erotic,” “mystical” and “hard to pin down.” One reviewer, upon hearing her latest release “In Waterland” for the first time, remarked that he was “partially shocked.” Another calls the album “a revelation, nothing less than stunning.” Her work has drawn comparisons to Feist, Fiona Apple, Imogen Heap, Tori Amos, and the Beach Boys.
