November 18th, Jam Session: Combinatorial Equation - Duos, Trios and Quartets, Gallery RIVAA

"We are celebrating 7 years of Jazz Salon at Gallery RIVAA with our Combinatorial Equation - Duos, Trios and Quartets jam session on November 18th at 3:00 p.m.," says Kurien, who has jammed from the beginning.

"The idea being to create interesting combinations of sounds and musicianship...

"When was the last time you heard 2 basses play a Mingus tune? Or a guitar trio? Or just three horns and a bass?"

As we've reported in The Daily, Kurien reminds us that the event "...also represents the increasing expansion of the RIVAA gallery as a community centered cultural space, weaving art with performance events and broadening the Roosevelt Island community's cultural world."

Combinatorial Equation - Duos, Trios and Quartets extends the Jazz Salon series past 40 free events that have entertained residents at RIVAA.

Adding to the joys of cultural fusion, the jam session takes place in the company of CON-FRONT EAST Painting from Cluj-Napoca, a powerful exhibit of contemporary Romanian art now showing at the gallery.
