When: 3/14/19,Thursday,8:00PM                                                                            Where: Lilypad, 1353 Cambridge St., Cambridge, MA                                            Cost: $20, Students / Seniors $15

Welcoming back from New York

Drummer and composer Tomas Fujiwara Presenting his

Triple Double Band

Imagine a Jazz band with:

2 drummers (Tomas Fujiwara & Gerald Cleaver)

2 brass (Ralph Alessi & Taylor Ho Bynum)

2 guitars (Mary Halvorson & Brandon Seabrook)

As a full group…and as many combinations you want to imagine.

From All About jazz: “The symmetry and the evolving combinations gives Fujiwara as the composer varying textures and concepts to shape and explore. The result is an album that showcases the players as much as Fujiwara's compositional prowess, and together they are a potent combination”.

“Its music that sounds as unpredictable as it does inevitable. That's just the magic of drummer Tomas Fujiwara's work. Asymmetrical grooving in fifteen, puckered brass glances, winding horn melodies, and stormy ensemble assaults all follow as the (music) runs its course”.

“This group can be sliced and diced a number of different ways…Its daring music that leaves no doubt as to the veracity surrounding Fujiwara's place in the pantheon of left-leaning explorers leading the charge today”.

The volatile twists of the leader's adventurous charts offer rich opportunities to explore the combinations inherent in the novel line up”.

Avant Music News: “The result is so percussive that I can still feel the reverberations in my chest after the album is over. Can’t imagine what this would be like live”.

Jazzda Gana: “His scores are provocative.  It is works like this which make Triple Double the remarkably frenetic, yet subliminally lyrical and expressive albums of music from a drummer whose breathtaking pageant of skills make his works a compelling spectacle of polyrhythmic drumming”.

Dusted Magazine: “This record doesn’t really sound like anything else around. It’s big enough to contain volumes of interpersonal musical history, and intimate enough to make space for two people to melt into one sound unit in order to realize the composer’s intent”.

ACT Jams Productions presents Chris “Big Dog” Davis’ Birthday Bash, an All-White Attire, Smooth Jazz Affair in the orchestra lobby, featuring chart-topping flutist Althea Rene along with vocalists Barbara Fowler and Christi Jones. It's going down in a major way. An all female line-up bringing you the best in today's grooves! This show will be Off The Hook...Make sure to purchase tickets asap!

Soul Jazz Flutist Althea Rene is one the world’s most exciting solo improvisational flutists and regarded by some as a “master of her craft.” Her hit song “In the Flow” allowed her to become the first flute player in the history of the Billboard Chart to reach the #1 spot. She was born December 25th in Detroit, Michigan and began her musical journey at age four as a classical flutist. She studied classical music while attending Howard University in Washington D.C. and later gained further musical inspiration from the accomplishments of Yusef Lateef, Ian Anderson, and her father, one of Motown's original Funk Brothers, Dezie McCullers.

Recording Artist Barbara Fowler will be debuting her new music which includes a hot single titled "I'm Just Saying" or "IJS" as well as some very tasteful selections for this Up Close and Personal evening of muisc. Trust and believe, you do not want to miss the energy and vibe of her new project.

Christi Jones is an electifying vocalist that will captivate a crowd and leave you wanting more. She's a bonafide recording artist that can be heard on the single "No Sleep" from saxophonist Kim Waters new album titled Rhythm and Romance.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
