This summer I'll be taking part as a Guest Artist in an amazing music and dance program in Greece: Rhythm Summit by TapMotif is a unique study center for rhythm, percussive dance, jazz and world music held on the beautiful island of Lefkada.

Rhythm Summit will integrate the study of global jazz, world music and rhythm dance through daily classes, workshops and jam sessions culminating in a concert performance to be created and programmed by the students and faculty together. The faculty of Rhythm Summit will include master Greek musicians Petros Kourtis (percussion) and Petros Klampanis (bass) as well as master rhythm dance artists Max Pollak and Heather Cornell.

There are still spaces open in Rhythm Summit for student participants. If you are intrigued by the prospect of studying, hanging and jamming in a cutting-edge, supportive artistic environment located on an island paradise, take a look at the Rhythm Summit Program to learn more. And feel free to email me with any questions!

Double Bill: San Melao/John Funkouser Trio NYC CD Release

03/15/10 |7 to 9:30 PM

New York, NY

My old Cornell U. buddy John Funkhouser brings his explosive trio to NYC for a CD Release show to promote "Time", his new album. To make it even more fun, San Melao will be headlining the show. Don't miss it!

Cornell University in the late 80’s was the deconstructionist meeting ground for myself and pianist/composer/bassist John Funkhouser. We formed an enduring friendship based on the shared love of jazz and improvised music, literature, and late-night hangs. Now a professor at Berklee College of Music, Funk brings his Trio to NYC for a double-bill reunion show with San Melao.

The John Funkhouser Trio: 7-8 PM

The John Funkhouser Trio:

“Superb….The performances sparkle with imagination!"

- Lee Prosser, JazzReview.com, December, 2009

The John Funkhouser Trio is an energetic, accessible blend of modern jazz, funk, blues, 20th century classical, Indian classical, and world folk musics, fused to create “music of exceptional beauty and exceedingly important value." (AllAboutJazz.com). Although the band consists of the standard jazz trio instrumentation of piano, bass and drums, the sound of the band is anything but standard. Fired by Berklee Professor Funkhouser’s “explosive piano playing" (Boston Globe) and set in bold relief by his cinematic and “exquisite, tight originals" (The Octopus, Champaign, IL) the band stretches the limits of traditional jazz forms. John draws for inspiration on great composers of extended musical works from all genres, like Charles Mingus, Frank Zappa, Igor Stravinsky, and Phish leader Trey Anistasio. Smoothly integrating composed music with improvisation, “the trio takes the listener on a ride through the gamut of emotional territories." (North Denver Tribune, Denver, CO)

APAP Conference San Melao Showcases featuring Paul Carlon & Los Americas and Max Pollak & Rumbatap

01/08/10 |6:30 to 10 PM

New York, NY

Consider San Melao the destination, and the fluid collaboration of Afro-Latin music and dance the journey that transcends the routine and predictable.

This year Max and I have put together a new showcase for the APAP (Association of Performing Arts Presenters) Conference, under the name of San Melao.

Voices & Bodies at Springstep

Medford, MA


On Saturday, November 14, 2009, the Springstep Performance Series is proud to present VOICES & BODIES. Watch masters of their craft present virtuosic, multicultural a cappella vocals and innovative body music all in one show!

VOICES is an original, a cappella performance piece showcasing the human voice as a truly versatile and expressive instrument. Award-winning composer Philip Hamilton and Kenny “the human orchestra" Muhammad uniquely and creatively combine the influences of international vocal tones and techniques, such as Tuvan throat singing, Congolese mouth-clicking, Balinese monkey chanting, and Hip Hop's beat boxing, with the rich sounds of diverse a cappella singing styles, including doo-wop, Bulgarian choirs, barbershop quartets, work songs, South African miners' songs and Gregorian chants.

The Crosspulse Rhythm Duo with Keith Terry & Evie Ladin makes music out of anything and everything, blending traditional and contemporary jazz and world music, Appalachian banjo, step dancing traditions, and more! Body Music, also known as Body Percussion and Body Drumming, is the oldest music on the planet, and Crosspulse draws from many traditional types of Body Music in the world, from African-American Hambone and Flamenco Palmas to Sumatran Saman and Ethiopian Armpit music.

Also appearing as Special Guests will be Max Pollak, creator of New York’s “Rumbatap" and his creative partner, composer Paul Carlon.

We are in the process of working up new material for our second CD, to be recorded in the Spring of 2008.

Originally from Gaudeloupe, young vocalist Christelle Durandy brings a wide knowledge of Afro-Cuban music and the Paris jazz and world music scenes to her first appearance with the Octet. She has studied and recorded with Ivan Darroman Montoya in Cuba, and has also worked with Carlos “El Bola" Betancourt, Baptiste Trotignon, Jo Benoti, Edouard Leys, Karl W. Davis and The Milkmen, and Company Erebe-Kouliballets. Christelle has been tearing it up in rehearsals; I'm really looking forward to this show with her!!!

Also joining us with his deep and uniquely funky Austro-Afro-Cuban groove will be Rumbatap innovator Max Pollak.

Personnel: Tatam Greenblatt on trumpet, Ryan Keberle and Mike Fahie on trombones, Paul on tenor and soprano saxophones, mbira, and flute, Anton Denner on alto saxophone and flute, Nicki Denner on piano, Pedro Giraudo on bass, and William “Beaver" Bausch on drums.
