“Uncertain” Sax And Squeezebox Sounds Fill Whole G

by Brian Slattery | Oct 6, 2015 12:16 pm

For his opening piece, Richard McGhee drew rich, long tones from his sax, reveling in the natural reverb of Whole G Café. The audience, which packed the house and had still more people standing near the door to hear, stayed quiet enough that you could hear the notes end not with McGhee’s breath or the instrument, but somewhere up toward the ceiling.

From New Haven To Hollywood, & Back Again

by Brian Slattery | Oct 2, 2015 1:54 pm | Comments (1)

Desirea Rodgers When Jon Rodgers—who has a show Saturday night at the Outer Space to support his latest project, Cindertalk—was 11, he was in the garage of the house in New Haven he lived in with his family, practicing guitar. “I didn’t even have an amplifier,” Rodgers said in an interview on WNHH radio’s “Northern Remedy” program. “A guy who was walking by on the street came in. He said, ‘Oh … you’re learning guitar, this is fantastic.’

“So he picks up the guitar. He’s got the big weathered hands of an adult and he’s playing these chords, and I thought, ‘Wow, he’s really good — Who is this guy?’ And eventually he said, ‘well, you keep practicing and one day you’ll come and play my place.’ And I said, ‘what do you mean?’ And he said, ‘well, I own Toad’s Place.’”

by Sharon Benzoni | Oct 1, 2015 12:50 pm

Genet Asef, vocalist for the Krar Collective, performed a head-twisting, hair-whipping dance. A few minutes later, she jumped down off the stage and into the midst of the dancing crowd.  Temesgen Zeleke pulled gorgeous sounds from his electric krar, and Grum Bebegashaw kept the rhythm moving on the kebero drums.

“There are no words,” said the man behind me.

Dvořák, Lash To Stun Thursday Night

by Lucy Gellman | Oct 1, 2015 12:09 pm

Lucy Gellman Photos In preparation for a major concert Thursday night — the first of the season — William Boughton leaned in to the string section of the New Haven Symphony Orchestra (NHSO), nearly falling from his perch as he primed the violins for receipt of some great, long-kept secret. Half cloaked in shadow at stage right, the cellos took note, a few rogue whispers falling quiet as the section readied itself for the same advice. In the back of the stage, the French horns and woodwinds followed suit too, setting down the coiled, shining bodies of their instruments and wetting their reeds in anticipation.
