Max Ribner "1st Language" release + Lindy Kehoe (Postponed until ???)
WE ARE SAD & DISAPPOINTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THIS HOUSE CONCERT ON 8/7 HAS BEEN POSTPONED INDEFINITELY (DUE TO HEAVY SMOKE AND INCREASED COVID OUTBREAKS) – – STAY TUNED & THANKS!
What are the common threads that bridge jazz, soul, and classical music with spiritual connection and community service?
This is the question that drives international touring artist Max Ribner. The sound that answers is rich, reverent, and intimate, connecting us through the lineage of music, to the stories of our ancestors. In the past, Max’s unique and fusion-inspired approach to Flugelhorn and trumpet has led him to perform with artists such as Esperanza Spalding, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Trevor Hall, The Polish Ambassador, Liv Warfield and many more. The result of years of collaboration with such a broad musical community is powerfully illustrated on Max’s debut solo album, 1st Language. The 11-song debut album brings 50+ artists together in a cross-continental collaboration for the ages. Featured artists include: Bobby Sparks II (Roy Hargrove, Snarky Puppy,) Mark Lettieri (Snarky Puppy,) Saeeda Wright (Prince,) Sharay Reed (Chaka Kahn,) to name a few. In addition, the album was mixed by Grammy award winning mix engineer, Ben Kane (D’Angelo, PJ Morton and Emily King) Completed in late 2020, amidst the din of COVID-19, national elections, and an ongoing movement for equality and inclusion, 1st Language is a sonic calling together of our collective humanity.
This intimate evening will be greatly enhanced by Lindy Kehoe! LIndy’s work is inspired by serendipity, a momentary feeling of interconnected magic, that often feels like a dream. She is motivated to create images that bring peaceful energy to the viewer, a place of remembrance, a place of innocence. The Oracular tendency keeps this extraordinary visionary artist fascinated by the mystical process. Live Painting will unfold this evening in Lindy’s hands – A gracious Outdoor setting in Ashland is where this gathering will be held. RSVP to 415.847.1144 for address & directions (limited space for guests). You may also get tickets online & this gathering will for sure sell out — plus a few special guests to be announced!
