Greenwich House Music has long been a focal point of the downtown arts scene, with pivotal figures from Henry Cowell, Edgar Varèse and John Cage to Meredith Monk, Joan La Barbara and Morton Subotnick linked with the institution. Singer-songwriter Steve Earle and guitarist Jorma Kaukonen have performed at Greenwich House, and jazz has a history there, too: Varèse and composer Earle Brown, collaborating with saxophonist-producer Teo Macero, hosted an improvisation session in 1957 with a group that included such players as Art Farmer and Charles Mingus. More recently, the Jazz Composers Collective held important concerts at Greenwich House in the 1990s. 

Sound It Out, founded by series curator Bradley Bambarger in June 2012, aims to continue this tradition by hosting musicians from jazz and other venturesome genres, further binding Greenwich House Music with progressive scenes across New York City. 

GHMS was named one of the five best jazz venues in New York City for 2013!


All concerts are held at Greenwich House Music School

Jesse Stacken Quartet and André Matos Trio

Hot double-bill!

Tuesday, June 28, 7:30 p.m.

All About Jazz has said: “André Matos is a free thinker,” while The New York Times has praised the Portuguese-born guitarist as one who “advances a pointedly contemporary air.” A keen collaborator onstage and on record with his wife, vocalist Sara Serpa, Matos has his own sound and sensibility as a leader, alternately lush and edgy. As for pianist-composer Jesse Stacken, The New York Times described his recent quartet album, Helleborus, as “scintillating” and “beautiful,” also pointing out “the quality of his cohesion with Tony Malaby, Sean Conly and Tom Rainey. At every turn on Helleborus, the ensemble plays with gusto.” The linchpin of both bands on this night is saxophonist Tony Malaby, who DownBeat has described as “a musician’s musician, one of New York’s most beloved creative artists.”

Jesse Stacken, piano; Tony Malaby, saxophones; Sean Conly, double-bass; Tom Rainey, drums; André Matos, guitar; Tony Malaby, saxophone; Billy Mintz, drums

Tickets: $15 ($12 for students and seniors)
