Cluttertones [Zula Music & Arts Collective]

Zula Music & Arts Collective Hamilton presents

THE CLUTTERTONES

Lina Allemano  trumpet, Rob Clutton  bass, composition, Ryan Driver  human voice, analogue synth, piano, Tim Posgate  banjo, guitar

SPACE IS LIMITED, SO PLEASE RESERVE SEATS ASAP!

Bassist Rob Clutton has been a generous and inspiring contributor to Toronto creative music for decades. Cluttertones is a chamber jazz quartet that exquisitely synthesizes his diverse interests – song, long-form composition, lyricism, extended improvisation, extreme textures, and more – through his seasoned bandmates, Lina Allemano (trumpet), Ryan Driver (analogue synthesizer, piano, voice), and Tim Posgate (guitar, banjo). Cluttertones music reveals itself slowly, making countless subtle, mysterious insinuations in place of bold declarations. Disarmingly gorgeous melodies emerge from the fog of thorny group playing, often evoking the simplicity of folk music. 

WHERE:  80 West Avenue North near Wilson, between Victoria & Wellington, Wilson & King William
WHEN: Saturday, November 4, 2017 (8 pm)
TIX: Admission: Suggested donation $10-15 sliding scale

Hailed in the Canadian press as "one of his country’s true renaissance men when it comes to music" (The Ottawa Citizen), and "a jazz genius to call our own" (Maclean’s Magazine), composer and pianist David Braid is a Steinway Artist, seven-time Juno nominee, and winner of two Juno Awards for his solo piano recordings. His arrangements and compositions were an integral part of the Chet Baker-inspired film, Born to Be Blue and his jazz score received praise for its "contemporary patina without sacrificing period authenticity" (The Times, UK). He also won Best Original Score and Best Original Song at the 2017 Canadian Screen Awards.

An engaging, lyrical saxophonist, Mike Murley is one of Canada’s most celebrated and well-respected jazz artists.  Currently active as a leader in various formations from duo to septet, Murley also maintains a busy schedule as both a sideman and an educator as Chair of the University of Toronto Jazz Program.  He has played on twelve Juno Award-winning recordings since 1990.

For more than two decades, drummer Anders Mogensen has been one of the most sought-after musicians on the Danish as well as the international jazz scene.  Hailing from Finland and one of the busiest bass players in Sweden, Johnny Åman rounds out the group’s rhythm section.

In partnership with the Hamilton Association for the Advancement of Literature, Science and Art (HAALSA), this engaging lecture delves into the life and circumstances that surround D’Arcy McGee’s rise and fall, as well as how his story has been brought to life by through theatre and opera. This evening features an aria from the Opera, Shot.

Presenters:
Abigail Richardson-Schulte, HPO Composer-in-Residence and composer of the opera, Shot
Dermot Nolan, playwright, It’s Morning Now
Featuring a guest singer from the opera, Shot.

Presented in partnership with: The Players’ Guild of Hamilton, The Centre for Opera Studies in Italy, Dundas Museum and Archives.

Lori Yates with Hey Stella
Saturday, November 11. Doors @ 7:30PM, Show Starts @ 8:30. Admission: $20.
Alternative country “supergroup” Hey Stella formed in 1998, and quickly gained a Lori Yates reputation as one of the premiere “live” acts in the country. Thousands of patrons caught Hey Stella (David Baxter, Bazil Donovan, Michelle Josef, Lori Yates) in the cavernous back room of Ted’s Wrecking Yard and Ted’s Collison during their five year weekly residency. Their irreverent and charming approach to traditional country tunes and their originals included; humor, pathos, stellar musicianship. The night often ended with Lori standing on a table belting out Leonard Cohen’s “So Long Marianne” while everyone in the bar sang along with her, making them a crowd favorite.
