Steve Hudson Chamber Ensemble
Jun 16, 2012 07:30 PM - 09:30 PM
Genre bending group, the Steve Hudson Chamber Ensemble, with guest vocalist Peter Eldridge, perform original works rooted in jazz, classical, tango, & rock for violin, cello, voice, keyboards, and percussion.
Led by composer Steve Hudson - piano/melodica, and featuring Sara Caswell – violin, Jody Redhage - cello/voice, and Martin Urbach - cajon/percussion, the ensemble returns to play a live show backing their critically acclaimed album “Galactic Diamonds.”
Their newest recording, Galactic Diamonds has been called “a collection of little gems” by All About Jazz; “so disarmingly fun that it’s impossible to resist...a good-naturedly eclectic mix of third stream jazz with a catchy, quirky pop edge” by Lucid Culture; and “consistently engaging” by Christian Carey, Signal To Noise.
Steve Hudson is a pianist and composer based in New York City whose compositions and piano style embrace the history of jazz, blues, folk, and modern classical music, all with a free spirited love of improvisation. Recently, Steve and saxophonist Claire Daly premiered an extended suite at the Juneau Jazz Festival dedicated to the Alaskan explorer Mary Joyce which they also took to Jazz at Lincoln Center.
