Mother Fools

Chris Powers and Randal Harrison - 8pm

1101 Williamson St
Madison WI
Price: $7

Mother Fool's is thrilled to host the first-ever duo show from two of Madison's most dynamic string musicians. Join us for a very special evening of hot swing, blues, Celtic and bluegrass music.

Randal Harrison is well-known to Madison audiences as the innovative jazz violinist in the Randal Harrison Trio, and as the blues-rock violinist in Honor Among Thieves. This summer he has also been touring with Milwaukee's Irish group Leahy's Luck, and with bluegrass stalwarts the Piper Road Spring Band. He has won Madison Area Music Awards for Artist of the Year in each of the Jazz, Classical, and Blues categories.

Chris Powers is the commanding lead singer and multi-instrumentalist with the Old Tin Can String Band. His mandolin was the third voice in the blues-roots group The Roddys. He also was band-leader for Madison's long-running Bluegrass Survivors, and for the original string jazz trio Nobody's Bizness. He hosts the weekly radio show "Mud Acres" on WORT-FM.

Powers and Harrison first played together in the mid-1980's when they were both studying jazz with Richard Davis' Black Music Ensemble. Though their paths have crossed many times over the years, this is the first time they ever collaborated an entire show.

About JoAnne Pow!ers:
http://www.joannepowers.org Free jazz outlaw JoAnne Pow!ers plays frequently in the Madison Area both as a solo act and with her trio (The aptly-named JoAnne Pow!ers Trio). Pow!ers also makes occasional appearances in the [sometimes literally] underground music scenes of New York, Chicago, and San Francisco. Her frenetic saxophone abuse is often compared to that of Albert Ayler and Peter Brötzmann, with further influences from late-period John Coltrane and legendary Japanese free-improviser Kaoru Abe. With a tone that has been known to alternately peel the paint off of walls and lull angry babies to sleep, Pow!ers is known for her lightning-fast keywork, and heavy use of multiphonics and other extended techniques. While largely operating within the "Energy music" school of improvisation, Pow!ers` music also incorporates elements of the music of the Middle East and India. In addition to her trios, Pow!ers` collaborators have included New York percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani; Dave Rempis (saxophones), Fred Lonberg-Holm (cello), Tim Daisy (percussion), Jaimie Branch (trumpet) and Marc Riordan (percussion) of Chicago`s thriving improvised music scene; extreme vocalist D.B. Pedersen, and the late multi-instrumentalist Lyx Ish.  She recently launched her own JoAnne Pow!ers Chicago Trio with violinist Andrew Royal and percussionist Bryan Sulpizio.

The Wealth in our Midst:
A Celebration  of Creative Improvised Music & Arts in Dane County


 
The Jazz Violin with The Randal Harrison Trio
 
The violin is the most predominant instrument in European classical music, aside from the piano. But what has happened  since, say 1492? The proud, full-chested little instrument emigrated and gradually acquired the language of jazz as musicians cast their fortunes in The New World. Such  historical echoes call out when Randal Harrison lays  horsehair to string because America’s indigenous musical art remains somewhat under served by the violin.

 Consider that virtually no violinists of note emerged from bebop, the idiom that defined modern jazz. Yet violinists did populate the swing era and a variety of contemporary and cutting-edge styles. 
 
That historical context provides a compelling reason to hear Harrison play at The Madison Music Collective’s fourth concert in the series “The Wealth in our Midst: A Celebration of Creative Improvised Music & Arts in Dane County.” 
 
You may have heard of Jean-Luc Pointy, Stephane Grappelli and Svend Asmussen, all European violinists who adopted jazz. Perhaps you've heard the Americans Ray Nance, Joe Venuti, Stuff Smith, Jerry Goodman, Billy Bang, Leroy Jenkins and Regina Carter and various bluegrass players  who’ve tapped the instrument’s improvisational potential and power to swing. But it’s a mystery why more haven’t. The violin’s basic vocabulary --  abrasive attacks, legato melodies, nuanced fingering and see–saw dynamics --  lends itself to swing’s sly rhythmic effusions as much as any instrument. 
 
Rare as the real jazz fiddler is, Madison is lucky to have Harrison. With solid classical training, he firmly grasps a venerable tradition while swinging an axe that cuts new clearings and builds on the still-evolving jazz violin tradition.  Harrison’s compositions draw from such diverse influences as Indian Classical music, his own “Appalachian funk,” Gypsy and Klezmer traditions of Eastern Europe, and Astor Piazzolla’s Tango Nuevo of Argentina.  
 
This program will appeal to the area string community; to those more classically oriented, this performance could be a potentially meaningful introduction to improvised music.

The concert  series The Wealth in our Midst: A Celebration  of Creative Improvised Music & Arts in Dane County is sponsored, in part, by the Dane County Cultural Affairs Commission with additional funds from the Overture Foundation and the Pleasant T. Rowland Foundation, WORT 89.9 FM, WYOU TV, and Capitol Lakes Retirement Community.   Additional sponsors are: Willy Street Co-op, Capitol Centre Market, Fromagination, and Potter’s Crackers.

 Founded in 1985, the Madison Music Collective (MMC) is the region’s premier resource for musicians and fans of improvised music. The Collective aims to present improvised music to a broader audience, without compromising artistic integrity or creativity. Performances provide educational information to musicians and the public, and the MMC fosters a tightly knit community of musicians and listeners.  As creative improvised music becomes harder to come by, the MMC continues to bring challenging and original music to Dane County , and provides an acoustically-responsive space in which artists present their work.  For more information
about the MMC, please see www.mmcmusic.org.

Keeping the Lights On, a film by Gretta Wing Miller and Aarick Beher - 5:30pm

Madison WI
Price: $7

Directed By: Gretta Wing Miller, Aarick Beher
additional camera: Patrick Kouba

www.downtowndailies.com
In Vernon County, Wis., the Dairyland Power Cooperative needed a place to dump the ash scrubbed out of their coal processing plant. Their analysts calculated that the best location for the landfill was the acres-wide indentation in the hills several miles down the road — home to several century-old family farms. This is the story of the dilemma faced by the providers of electrical power, the Wisconsin farmers who fought to save their land, and the question of coal now facing our state.

This is the third film by Gretta Wing Miller and Aarick Beher that incorporates music composed and performed by Randal Harrison. See you at the premier!
