I'm excited to announce the debut of an awesome new R&J project...
Dina and I have been working hard on a new song cycle, for a six piece a cappella ensemble. The piece is based on The World Is Round, a 1938 children's book by Gertrude Stein, and it features some amazing guest artists: Kitka alum Caitlin Austin; pioneering jazz vocalist Lorin Benedict; Sleepytime Gorilla Museum alum Michael Mellender; and composer Ron Shalom. Esteemed poet Judy Grahn, a pioneer of feminist writing who has published a book on Gertrude Stein, will narrate.
You'll have two chances to hear this version of the piece:
Fri Sept 11 / Subterranean Arthouse / 2179 Bancroft, Berkeley / 8pm
Sat Sept 12 / Red Poppy Arthouse / 2698 Folsom, San Francisco / 7:30pm
Don't miss it!
