5 thoughts on ““Summer at the CFA” to include world premiere jazz; Connecticut premiere dance”
Thank you for bringing in Joe Lovano and his group for this performance. The music was so tight that it was obvious that this group really knew each other and their capabilities well. Barry Ries on trumpet/coronet was a welcome addition to the group and has been a long time member of Joe’s touring band over the last ten years. I really liked the singing/movement of Judi S. and it all fit together so seamlessly with the other group members. Great show and I will see them whenever they visit the area.
I’ve known of Joe since he played with Woody Herman. Thought he was great then and hes gotten better thru the years continually pushing the envelope. I try to see him anytime he’s in my area. Roger
Camille A. Brown & Dancers were wonderful!. Energetic, fluid, engaging. I see a lot of dance and I will seek her out and travel to see her because The company is really an outstanding example of modern movement choreography.
I was quite disappointed by Joe Lovano’s group. He is a fine saxophonists but the trumpter player pretends to be Miles Davis circa 1961 without skill or imagination and Judi Silvano, the vocalist, was worse. I don’t understand what Lovano is trying to do.
