Composers Concordance Presents– CompCord Jazz Ensemble –
Featuring Legendary Musicians Dick Griffin and David Amram Thursday, April 20th, 2023 at 8:30pm Birdland 315 West 44th St, NYC
On Thursday, April 20th at 8:30pm, Composers Concordance brings together the exceptional instrumentalists of the CompCord Jazz Ensemble for an evening of high-velocity newly written jazz compositions, as well as great food and drink at NYC’s legendary Jazz venue: Birdland.
Featured on the program are composers David Amram (New York Philharmonic’s first composer-in-residence, scored such films as ‘Splendor in the Grass’ and ‘The Manchurian Candidate’), and Dick Griffin (Sun Ra, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Abdullah Ibrahim). Also included are cutting-edge Jazz compositions by Joe Abba, David Amram, William Anderson, Anthony Branker, Dan Cooper, Sophie Dunér, Jane Getter, Dick Griffin, Laurence Goldman, Franz Hackl, and Gene Pritsker.
Proud to be a part of this amazing review in this months issue of (the acclaimed jazz journal) The New York City Jazz Record by John Pietaro of Composers Concordance presents Sound Liberation at the The Bitter End in NYC:
”……..Dunér was called up for outstanding scat vocals, leaning easily against original music morphing into Brahms and erupting into Rozenblatt’s Krupa-like tom-toms. If this be New Music, it is the sort best viewed with eyes locked into a convex rear-view mirror. ” – John Pietaro 1/23 The New York City Jazz Record

‘VARGHONAN’ available on VIMEO & YOUTUBE
Solen står högre nu, var dag kom du och stanna. Hör vågor så blå, djup längtan ner, ner. Sinnen så röda, skär mina tankar i eld. Solen står högre nu högre nu, möt stjärnornas stjäl. Djup, glödande het, slår hon ut sin spirande kärlek. Hör, ylande, ropande varghona, ah ah ah! Ah, ah, hör mitt rop! Sjung min sång en gång till. Känn mitt blod, tag mina ben. Ah, aha ah ah! Ah ah ah! Ah ah ah! Ah ah ah! Ah ah ah! Sophie Dunér 1992
