Bio: NYC-based quartet of rad musicians journeying through free jazz, dissident swing, modernist blues and contemporary composition. At once exploratory, listenable, compelling and patently “downtown”, call it post-Ornette, Post-Dolphy, post-Punk, post-Occupy music as revolutionary as the times demand... See Full Bio

On Valentine’s Day - Come to an evening of music, song & sharing love for recently released People’s Lawyer Lynne Stewart. Because of a determined people’s movement, Lynne is finally home with her family. But she has urgent medical needs and costs. Lynne’s Stage 4 breast cancer spread a year ago to both lungs, back, bones, and lymph nodes. Now 74, she has lost weight and has trouble breathing; doctors estimate her lifespan at 12 months. Lynne will soon begin treatment requiring her to pay deductibles and co-­payments. To boost the odds, she’ll use a ­ special diet, ­vitamins, and other healing methods –some costly and none covered by insurance. Lynne’s spirit is indomitable - help her fight to survive! “I fought lions, I fought tigers, and I’m not going to let cancer get me,” Stewart said. Lynne has always come to the aid of those who needed her. Now it’s our turn to stand by Lynne. Send Lynne a Valentine & a Donation Or mail to: Lynne Stewart Organization 1070 Dean St., Brooklyn, NY 11216 Make checks out to: Lynne Stewart Organization. More info at LynneStewart.org
