AFTERGLOW: ARK OVRUTSKI QUINTET FEATURING CHIP MCNEILL AND TITO CARRILLO

Posted by dejavu Category: News

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2012, AT ABOUT 9PM | LOBBY Ukraine native Ark Ovrutski became captivated with the syncopated rhythms bubbling under the dance melodies of Brazil, and he fosters the kinship between those sounds and the romantic Eastern European strains of his homeland in his jazz compositions. Whether gauzy or electrifying, his tunes capture the resonant sonorities of Carnival, a set at a tucked-away jazz club in São Paulo, and a fierce exchange between improv masters in any locale. Ovrutski’s bass ripples, races, and sashays above lush chords as piano lines add texture or punctuate with explosive statements. Saxophonist Chip McNeill and Tito Carrillo on trumpet will add their inimitable jazz inflections to ingenious songs that might soar or melt with delicious poignancy or blast the roof off this joint. The length of this event will be announced when information becomes available. Creative Intersections Sponsor The News-Gazette
