Time flies like an arrow…

… but fruit flies like a bananna!

Whatever!¬† It has been a whole six months since the last ARTSomerville update.¬† Just because there hasn’t been an update, it doesn’t mean that we are slacking.¬† We’ve been very very busy with live shows, many of which have been recorded and will appear on Jamendo.

There are around 10 new ARTSomerville albums on Jamendo since the last blog entry.  Here are some highlights:

Improvising violinist Yael Bat-Shimon’s second album on Jamendo has been getting a lot of attention!¬† She is joined by guitarist Ariel Burger for a new set of virtuoso pieces!

There isn’t a lot of classical music on Jamendo, and even less of it is classical music for voice.¬† The recital “Songs in Autumn” has been well received by the fans here.

Here’s some old school psychedelic jam band music for you!¬† No Such Animal is a collaboration between sax man Ken Field (Birdsongs of the Mesozoic) and guitarist Tim Mungenast, along with drummer Jon Proudman and bassist Michael Bloom.¬† Listening to this, it is difficult to imagine that it was more than 90 F on the hot night that these guys played, and not a gentle breeze anywhere to be found!¬† To top it off, Dr. T projected some crazy video onto the scene.¬†   Royalty Free Music - Stock Music Library | Jamendo PRO[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tA6NPee4z8E[/youtube]

And there’s much more coming up.¬† In the works now is a rare performance by the vocal group Zefiro performing sacred music of the Renaissance.¬† We’ve recently recorded an encore performance by indie singer / songwriter Tim Showalter and his band Strand of Oaks.¬† We’ve got some other freaky performances in the can from Grizzler.¬† Last week, the Metal and Glass Ensemble played a 90 minute piece that left the audience totally stunned!¬† That’s just what we have in the works now!

Coming soon are new shows by Jason Anderson and some of our other regular performers, so you’ll definitely want to stay tuned!
