RAW JAZZ includes Four Free Concerts:
"BASSDRUMBONE - the trio of Mark Helias on bass, Gerry Hemingway on drums and Ray Anderson on trombone romps through its music, artfully pulling compositions in three directions at once. Like...very few other jazz ensembles, BassDrumBone's collective improvisations can be bluesy or ethereal, pensive or raucous in the space of a few seconds." - Jon Pareles, New York Times
"The story keeps unfolding for this fabled trio that released its first outing in 1978. With rest stops along the way, the musicians' synergy remains as a source of amazement, coupled with their perpetual creative sparks that sculpt a route embedded with fresh concepts and supreme musicianship." - Glenn Astarita JazzReview.com

The Gallery Upstairs at the Institute Library presents: EVIDENCE: Art & Facts

Murder mysteries, detective stories, cop shows and procedural dramas are all staples of contemporary entertainment. Both documentary and imagined cases are put forth for our delectation as both human drama and abstract puzzle. Crimes committed and the methods for catching those responsible are at the heart of so much of the stories we tell, with increasingly detailed and technical portrayals of the infinitesimal or invisible materials gathered to corroborate visible information and solve the case. Everything, from the theater at the scene of the crime to the final legal sentencing are lovingly described, over and over again in our dramas, books, images blending science, art and human intrigue.
This exhibit highlights the role deductive reasoning and careful examination play in constructing a narrative and conclusion. All of the artists in this show collect and present data, constructing their works as a form of
visual proof and use the documentary concept of “evidence” to undertake a creative act. This mode of practice, borrowed from science, looks at the traces of activity which surround us, presenting them to us anew
to look again. EVIDENCE features photography, sculpture and installation that have the artist in the varied roles of collector, sleuth and witness.
