BRATTLEBORO -- Open Music Collective presents the "For One Who Waits" official CD release concert by Mitch Seidman, Jamie MacDonald and Claire Arenius on Sunday at 4 p.m., at the Cotton Mill.
As a follow-up to the live CD "Triangulation," the group reunited in the recording studio, and focused mainly on compositions by members of the trio.
The collaboration spanned a variety of moods, yet remained committed to the idea of approaching jazz as an expressive form of art and often blurring the line between melody, improvised solo and accompaniment, relying on a rare collective empathy apart from technical facility on a musical instrument.
Such empathy is infused with experience, which drummer Claire Arenius has accrued performing with Melba Liston, Archie Shepp, Marion Brown, Ray Copeland, Tal Farlow, Mose Allison, Richard Davis, Barney Kessel, Slide Hampton and Attila Zoller.
Aside from his duties as the artistic director of the Open Music Collective in Brattleboro, bassist Jamie MacDonald has appeared with Sheila Jordan, Bobby Bradford, The Rod Levitt Orchestra, Peter Eldridge and Harvey Diamond.
Seidman has been a professional musician and music educator for well more than 40 years, he has performed at festivals, nightclubs, adjudicated and presented clinics throughout the U.S., as well in France, Germany, and Costa Rica, where he was also an artist-in-residence. Seidman has recorded with Harold Vick, Harvie S, Ted
Admission to the concert is $10. For reservations, call 802-254-5054 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
