1AMANI: MUSIC FROM THE HEART
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 8:00PM

Beacon Hill musician, Marty Eigen (sax/flute) will bring his new quartet, Amani, to the Bickford stage for a concert called “Music From the Heart.” The word “amani” means “peace” in Swahili. The group was formed to share the concept of peace through music, performing for people of all ages, races, and religious affiliations.  Besides Marty, the core group includes veteran musicians Fred Fischer (piano), Stephen Fuller (vocals) Flip Peters (guitar) and special guest pianist Leonieke Scheuble, who was recently the recipient of the “Best Up and Coming Young Artist Award” presented to her at the Hothouse Fan Award Ceremony held at The Metropolitan Room in Manhattan.  This will be the Bickford Theatre debut of this unique jazz ensemble.

dan-levisonDAN LEVINSON’S CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION OF RECORDED JAZZ
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 8:00PM

In February 1917, just days before the beginning of the Russian Revolution and while America herself simmered on the brink of war, the Victor Talking Machine Company recorded what would become the first “jazz” phonograph record, and nine days later released it to an unsuspecting public. The sounds on that wax disc – made by five young rebels from New Orleans calling themselves “The Original Dixieland ‘Jass’ Band” – heralded a concurrent revolution in MUSIC that took the country by storm and went on to captivate an entire planet.

A hundred years later, Dan Levinson will take you back to that historic moment in time and delight your senses with those very same sounds that exalted a war-weary nation and propelled it into a wild, hypnotic, jazz-induced frenzy! Featuring Dan Levinson (clarinet/C-melody saxophone), Mike Davis (cornet), Matt Mussleman (trombone), Jeff Barnhart (piano), and Kevin Dorn (drums).
