New Language Collaborative - 3/10

New Language Collaborative
Eric Zinman - piano, euphonium
Glynis Lomon - cello
Syd Smart - percussion

These musicians are some of the first that I (Forbes) had the pleasure of playing with when I moved to the Boston area and they are also some of the finest that you'll find here. They've been working together for decades and it shows in their sound. Syd, Glynis, and Eric have a wonderful musical lineage going back to the Black Music program of Bennington College run by Bill Dixon. Syd was one of the founders of the Friends of Great Black Music loft in Chinatown. They've worked with a lot of great musicians over the years. This is a must see event. I will be joining them on the second set as well.
