Performers listed in order of appearance

EARTH WIND & CHOIR  (Hamilton)
Sarah Good • conductress
Vocalists:
Amy Mcintosh • Beth De Jong • Biljana Vasilevska • Sahra Soudi • Jennifer Green • Karijn De Jong • Alexandra Zaralis • Katie Penrose • Heather South • Jess Carey • Bailey Duff • Molly Merriman • Carly Mary Mcleod • Christine Urquhart • Mac Kenzie • Jon Dalton • Ian Chalanger • Lee Skinner • Jeff Bakalar • Mark Raymond • Kieran Commanda

This ever-evolving local vocal institution introduced their fun, adventurous sound some ten ten years ago. Conductress Sarah Good plays the choir of 15-20 dedicated creative vocalists like an instrument, presenting idiosyncratic takes on the most beautiful, ugly and/or interesting music the group can find—from early polyphony to avant-pop.


 

YVES CHARUEST (QC)
• alto saxophone

Prolific Montreal-based alto saxophonist “Yves Charuest runs counter to expectations for free jazz saxophonists, his playing consistently lyrical, often understated, his brief, sometimes elliptical lines conveying intense passion and thought, but rarely cascades of notes or distorted timbres. Charuest, began his career in the 1980s and spent a creative stretch in Europe, long ago sublimated his influences into a distinctly personal style.” – Stuart Broomer, The Whole Note



INDIGENOUS MIND (Chicago)
Hamid Drake • drums, percussion
Joshua Abrams • double bass, guimbri
Jason Adasiewicz • vibraphone

The title of Alice Coltrane’s 1971 album Universal Consciousness speaks to the metaphysical impetus behind this trio. Comprised of three of Chicago’s most vibrant musical imaginations, Indigenous Mind is an homage to (Ms.) Coltrane’s legacy of innovation, as well as that of Pharoah Sanders. The collective aim of Hamid Drake (William Parker, David Murray, Herbie Hancock), Joshua Abrams (Town and Country, Natural Information Society) and Jason Adasiewicz (Sun Rooms, Living by Lanterns) is also to render the oneness of our shared primordial energy tangible through sound.


WILLIAM HOOKER (NY)
• drums, percussion, poetry (& film)

Iconoclastic drummer and poet William Hooker’s single-minded explorations of the drum kit have made him one of the most vital musicians of the past 40 years. Hooker has found fertile ground to cultivate moving music in a startling variety of settings. Similarly, his relentless expressivity, travels along multiple channels, offering a much-needed statement of social optimism in the arts.
