Corona Collaboration / Hoo's on First

We were blown away by the group of Boston-area musicians that make up the stellar, or should we say "solar" collaboration we called "Corona," because, a corona is the crown around the sun...blindingly brilliant, blazing, and hot. That pretty much describes this group of brilliant players from around the World who met in Boston and who make music that will blow you away. Drummer Nahum Corona introduced us to this talented ensemble ...thanks, Nahum~

Corona Collaboration / Hoo's on First

Ferdinano Argenti / Boston Nova

Ferdinando Argenti, Boston-based pianist/keyboardist/ vocalist/ composer/ arranger, was born in Pisa, Italy, in 1954. At age 7, this multi-faceted artist began studying piano until he entered high school, during which time he gained experience playing with Italian rock bands (although in the meantime listening to his father's American swing records ), and even won a national musical contest and appeared on Italian television. He continued to play music while a student of languages at the University of Pisa. In 1984 , he left Europe for the United States, where he furthered his jazz education. During this period, Argenti returned to his native Italy to perform in many jazz concerts with both Italian and American jazz musicians, most notably Chet Baker, Lee Konitz and Kenny Wheele . Among the Italian jazz musicians he played with, we should mention Massimo Urbani, Paolo Fresu, Marcello Rosa, Gianni Basso, Flavio Boltro, among others.

Sergio Brandao / Brazilian Landscapes

Blending the virtuosity of modern Jazz with his musical roots of Brazil, guitarist and composer Sergio Brandão weaves sophisticated forms and textures into a vibrant, simple fabric of folk traditions. With his ensemble, Banda Lua, Brandão has orchestrated a paean to his homelands rhythmic diversity and fire. Sergio leads a group of authentic musicians on a contemporary exploration of Brazilian musical styles. It was a delight to hear the music of Banda Lua drifting across the landscape of DreamFarm.

Ian Ethan Case / Centrifuge of Sound

Acoustic Double-Neck Guitarist Ian Ethan began a journey into truly uncharted territory when he picked up this seldom-seen 18-string instrument in 2005, two years after leaving the Berklee College of Music. While most who venture to play the instrument are either baffled by or unaware of the possibilities that it offers (its history seems to peg it as more of a grandiose stage prop than a valid musical tool), for him it is simply "the most effective and intuitive means I've found to translate into sound the things I'm hearing in my head." Drawing on a diverse musical background that saw him learning piano, drums, saxophone, electric guitar and bass beginning at the age of five, Ian Ethan's strikingly-unconventional, self-invented approach to the double-neck guitar is both magical to hear and mesmerizing to watch. And while his performances are visually intriguing to say the least, it is not showmanship but rather the sincere desire to accurately communicate the harmonically rich, mu...

Davis and Deleault / Playin' At The Farm

Davis and Deleault's music has touched audiences across the globe ranging from individual tours of the U.S. and Europe to sharing the stage with multi-Grammy winning artists including festival venues like the JVC, Montreal, Kool, Berlin, and many others. TV appearances on VH1 and various movie/sountracks. When describing the music of Davis and Deleault, one critic wrote, "Don Davis displayed a mastery of bass clarinet, alto and soprano saxophone, and achieved the same flexibility and excellence at improvisation with different timbres. Joe Deleault played with equal technical mastery and innovation on an instrument that can provide much rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic variety." The duo's recording credits include The Microscopic Septet, LL Cool J, Jon Bon Jovi, Mighty Sam McClain, CJ Chenier, Danzig, Tribute to Monk, and many others. Playin' at DreamFarm with Julie, they celebrate their talents and creative collaboration, and perform selections from their latest CD release "Davis and...

Spontaneous Architects / Nu Jazz Journey

The Spontaneous Architects was started in the spirit of the nu-jazz movement, which weaves modern beats and styles into the fabric of improvisational jazz. The ensemble is comprised of strong soloists that all play with a great deal of passion and energy that creates an exciting, engaging experience for the audience. Original music composed by saxophonist John Vaillancourt, a veteran performer who has recorded dozens of CDs as a sideman and leader and has played at jazz festivals and clubs throughout the Northeast. The compositions range from deep funk grooves to world jazz beats, and they're based on interesting yet accessible harmonic structures. The combination of the trumpet, sax, and acoustic bass evoke the classic jazz quintet sound of the hard bop era, yet the band's sound is entirely modern and fresh. Enjoy nu-jazz sounds from the farm.
