Flute Karma duo- WHY NOT EXPERIMENT with Cheryl Pyle and Premik Russell Tubbs Sunday March 23 , 2014 8:00 pm WHY NOT JAZZ 14 Christopher St NY , NY 10014
The Journey To Light Ensemble or JTLE, is multi-cultural electro-acoustic blending of sounds, instruments & styles in the spirit of East meets West. The group is lead by saxophonist, flutist, multi-instrumentalist Premik Russell Tubbs, who has worked with Santana, John McLaughlin, Ravi Shankar, Sting & many others.
Radically multicultural and poly-stylistic, New York City’s TriBeCaStan is one of contemporary music’s most vibrantly eclectic ensembles, using diverse instruments from around the globe to create an exotic palette of sonic colors and melodies. The band features some of New York’s finest jazz and world musicians—many of whom have played and collaborated with legendary innovators, including Ornette Coleman, Violent Femmes, John Corigliano, James Brown, Taj Mahal, Willy DeVille, and Eddie Harris. The New York Times describes TriBeCaStan’s sound as “genre-bending jazz and world-music” and The Washington Post hails them as “an international jazz and folk festival unto itself, fusing Balkan, Middle Eastern, Indian, Latin American, and African musical elements to bold and dazzling effect”. According to The Village Voice the band embodies “New York cool, explorer energy, and outer space vibes”.
