This will be an evening also about New York, the city that attracted countless artists who wanted to work, and win, and make a name for themselves. That is the story of the two musicians visiting us this evening: Joey Baron, who came from Richmond, Virginia, in ’82, and Dave Douglas, who came from New Jersey in ’85 – the former, to pursue his studies and finish his music degree, the latter, in need of a change following a short stint in Los Angeles. And so began forty years of adventures in jazz and all its parallel avenues, where both crossed paths with an endless parade of musicians that are part of the artistic constellation of New York City. In ’93 they joined the first incarnation of John Zorn’s Masada, and along with Greg Cohen they played and recorded extensively throughout the nineties. Recently, they met again to celebrate the music of Dizzy Gillespie in a sextet led by Douglas. Sharing long years of experience and musical camaraderie, Douglas and Baron are set to give us an evening of perfect communion, rich in history and stories.
