Cafe CODA1224 Williamson st.Madison, WI53703 Map

Jason Kutz: keyboards
Josh Cohen: six-string electric bass
Chris Di Bernardo: drums and cymbals
Tony Barba: tenor saxophone and effects

Bad Philosopher is an electric jazz trio based out of Madison, WI whose performance consists of original compositions fusing elements of classical, pop, funk, and jazz music with extended improvisations. The unorthodox background and approach of each member make this trio unique.

Multi-award winning 6-string electric bassist Josh Cohen uses tapping techniques to fulfill the role of both bass player and guitarist in one instrument, creating polyphonic textures that seamlessly interweave their compositions.

The three-time concerto award-winning pianist/keyboardist Jason Kutz, known for his ability to traverse both classical and jazz styles, employs his virtuosic technique and highly developed musical sensibilities to add rich layers of chordal harmony and melodic content.

Tony Barba is a saxophonist/educator/producer whose career has spanned the last twenty-five years. He has performed, taught and toured professionally all over the world. A long standing member of the globe trotting Youngblood Brass Band, Tony has also performed and recorded with such notable and diverse artists as Makaya McCraven, Bon Iver, David Murray, Josh Ritter, the Mountain Goats, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, and the Temptations. He also has recently released two solo albums featuring saxophone and electronic manipulation entitled Winter’s Arms (2016) and Ether (2019). Tony has been the instructor of the Memorial High School Jazz Band since 2017 and has a growing private studio of saxophone students.

Finally, drummer Chris Di Bernardo, armed with an in-depth knowledge of jazz and popular music and road-tested experience with the critically acclaimed Madison reggae band Natty Nation, provides an infectious rhythmic underpinning, supporting the band while serving up a plethora of diverse percussive improvisations connecting the music to its African roots.

Dec 12, 7:00pm - Dec 12, 9:30pm

Cafe CODA1224 Williamson st.Madison, WI53703 Map

This talented trio comes together on "Regalito", it’s only too obvious that music is what they are meant to do. With fun, fresh additions of Latin grooves and rhythms, the cross-cultural record will have you finding a new appreciation for these otherwise familiar tunes, such as “Jingle Bells,” “We Three Kings,” and “Linus and Lucy” (now “Linus and Lucinda”!).

Richard notes that it isn’t always easy to combine music from different cultural backgrounds but that it’s nonetheless important, and all three musicians affirm the value in their project in terms of exposing people to new types of music.

Eric & Mitch frame the project as “a cool opportunity to bring listeners in who gravitate toward certain things with music. We’re presenting something that’s enjoyable and festive, but it has some serious jazz language in there, which will help it appeal to the jazz people and the Latin music people and the Christmas music people.”

The project is all holiday music in a Latin/Salsa style. The new CD, Los Asesinos, is released on November 25th.

Dec 18, 7:00pm - Dec 18, 10:30pm

Cafe CODA1224 Williamson st.Madison, WI53703 Map

From Douglas R. Ewart:

"Sounds and Songs for a New Paradigm"

When we are able to thoroughly self-interrogate, make an overall assessment of our conducts, making changes based on not repeating the same mistakes, being thoughtful in the areas that make life better for all concerned, being courteous in the small ways, parking and leaving room for others to park, picking up things that could make someone fall on the sidewalk and in a store, taking a bag to the store rather than getting yet another plastic bag, listening to others with all our attention focused on them without interruption, buying something for someone that cannot afford it and the item would give them great joy, giving money to people less fortunate than you as you really don't need yet another pair of shoes, shirt, drink; recognizing the hardships so many people around the globe face every day of their lives as they have no aunt, uncle, friend, organization that can assist them in anyway as you had and/or have, and so on.

Washing the Mind and Spirit is also changing aspects of oneself that we know are an abuse of our position and authority, and being grateful and thankful for all the wonderful things that we have in our lives.

Cultivate great over-standing, empathy, and compassion.
Commit deliberate acts of kindness.

"If you have, you have enough to share," is what we were always taught by our Paternal Grandmother, and both of our Maternal and Paternal Grand Mothers exhibited this philosophy, concept, and behavior throughout their lives.

Joy is the World when We endeavor to make it so!
Walk Gud.

Douglas R. Ewart, Professor Emeritus at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1946. His life and his wide-ranging work have always been inextricably associated with Jamaican culture, history, politics, and the land itself. His father, Tom Ewart, was one of cricket’s most internationally celebrated professional umpires, eventually earning induction into the Cricket Hall of Fame. His aunt, Iris King, was a leading member of Norman Manley’s People’s National Party, and later, the first woman mayor in Jamaica.

Professor Ewart immigrated to Chicago in 1963, where he studied music theory at VanderCook College of Music, electronic music at Governors State University, and composition at the School of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. The AACM is renowned for its wide-ranging experimental approaches to music; its leading lights include Muhal Richard Abrams, Joseph Jarman, Fred Anderson, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Anthony Braxton, Lester Bowie, Kalaparusha Ara Difda, George Lewis, Malachi Maghostut Favors, Roscoe Mitchell, Amina Claudine Myers, Henry Threadgill, and many others, including Professor Ewart himself, who served as the organization's president between 1979 and 1987.
