ISTHISJAZZ

We triumphantly return on August 1st for another round of great original jazz at AS220. This time around we’ll be featuring two artists we’ve seen before making their returns to our stage. First on the night is The Leland Baker Quartet , a dynamic group of diverse players hail from all over new England. Lead by Providence local Leland Baker, each musician brings their own unique voice packing power, elegance, and emotion into meaningful melodies and rhythms. Headlining our August 1st show we are delighted to once again have The Greg Dudzienski Trio. Greg has played all over the world with a number of great ensembles and even bigger names. Take it from sax master Jerry Bergonzi who describes Dudzienski as having “a great warm sound and his melodic way of playing is all heart”. Seven musicians, two groups, one stage, and yet another killer night of jazz in the capitol.

 

Friday August 1st at 9pm, only $10 admission.

“Off the Grid: the electricity plays!” is the culminating performance of The Manton Avenue Project’s summer Dialogue program, a playwriting class held at MAP’s Clubhouse in Olneyville.

Eight returning playwrights, ranging from 6th to 8th grade, are partnered with adult artists, and together each pair writes and co-stars in a 10 minute play based on a storyline developed by the younger playwright. This year’s Dialogue plays focus on the impact electricity has on our lives and how we can use it more sustainably.

Each performance will feature all eight plays and will take place at AS220′s Empire Black Box space at 95 Empire Street in Providence, on:

Saturday, August 2nd at 2pm and 5pm.
Sunday, August 3rd at 2pm.
