BILL BANFIELD'S IMAGINE ORCHESTRA with Special Guests Sean Jones and Gabrielle Goodman at Scullers Jazz Club

BILL BANFIELD'S IMAGINE ORCHESTRA

with special guests Trumpeter Sean Jones and Vocalist Gabrielle Goodman

The Imagine Orchestra is a chamber jazz ensemble with an eclectic approach to creative composing and performing, where the music is both fully orchestrated and improvised.....Ellington meets Mingus, Ornette, Frank Zappa, Miles/ Gill Evans meets groove and pocket. There are 3 groups combined; string trio, rhythm trio and percussion, and winds and brass. The Imagine Orchestra also represents how creative artists come to collaborate and "imagine" what the music whispers to musicians to reach for....

" In the history of most of Western music culture, the works which came from its own time, were perfectly made with what needed to come forward. The most important thing one can do, is write in the language of one's own time. How it's made, and its craft is what counts. Doesn't matter what music, it has got to be well made. Bill's music fits these criteria; his music is well made for the times." - Gunther Schuller 2015

Fri., Mar. 4, 2016, 122p.m.



Victor Fowler is one of the most important writers of his generation. Born in 1960 to an Afro-Cuban family, he belongs to the first generation of writers born in Revolutionary Cuba. This was the generation that was supposed to provide the nation with what Che Guevara called the new man. In reality, this expectation was not fulfilledfew adopted the morals of Revolutionary life out of disinterested altruism. In fact, most of the writers of Fowlers generation have gone into exile. In contrast, Fowler has remained on the island, and has published 10 volumes of poetry and 5 of essays, in addition to a number of edited volumes and important collaborations. He has broken new ground in Cuban letters with extensive essays on the body, race and sexuality. His poetry, rich and allusive, gives us a window onto the complex realities of life in revolutionary Cuba.

Schools, Courts, and Civic Participation: Enforcing the Constitutional Obligation to Prepare All Students to be Capable Citizens
Harvard Graduate School of Education
Gutman Conference Center Area 1
Wed., Feb. 17, 2016, 121:30p.m.



Civic apathy, the polarization of our political institutions, and rampant social inequality render students preparation for active civic participation more important today than ever. Yet, surveys show that high-school graduates are ignorant of basic facts about government and the functioning of a democratic political system, and that students lack the training they need to be capable voters and engaged civic participants. Despite numerous calls for more emphasis on civic education, and dozens of specific proposals for how schools might be more effective in preparing students for civic participation, contemporary schools by and large have not proven equal to the task.

The U.S. Supreme Court, other federal courts, and a majority of the state supreme courts have held that a prime purpose of the public schools is to prepare students to function productively as civic participants. What the courts need to do now is take steps to ensure that states and school districts take their civic preparation duties seriously and implement on a sustained basis meaningful programs that will effectively prepare students for civic participation in todays world. The role of the courts in this enterprise is not to micromanage what is going on in the classrooms, but to induce states and schools to carry out their constitutional responsibilities to prepare students to function productively as civic participants in ways that meet contemporary needs.

2013 marked New York Voices 25th Anniversary and they show no signs of slowing down. This critically acclaimed vocal group has refined their musical story to a high art. They are known for their close-knit voicings, inspired arrangements and unparalleled vocal blend. Their chameleon-like musicianship allows them to move seamlessly from setting to setting, be it orchestral/big band to the intimate trio lineup. With deep interests rooted in jazz, Brazilian, R & B, classical, and pop, their music mixes traditional sensibilities with more than a dash of the unexpected. Like the great jazz vocal groups that have come before Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, Singers Unlimited, and The Manhattan Transfer they are firmly a part of that legacy and are dedicated to passing it on to generations to come. -- The Indianapolis Star

"New York Voices lives up to its reputation as the most exciting vocal ensemble in current jazz... to collect such quality voices in one group is rare enough, yet the real trick of New York Voices is how well they mesh..."
-- Boston Herald

John Hammond
5-5-2016

Multi Award winning Bluesman John Hammond remains one of the world's premier acoustic blues artists. A Blues Hall Of Fame inductee with 33 + albums to date, he is one of a handful of artists who can say they have been steadily working and recording for 50 + years.

One of the most awarded musicians around, John, who won a Grammy for his performance on Blues Explosion (1985), has
8 Grammy nominations, most recently for Album Of The Year for his 2010 release "Rough & Tough. He is a 10 time Blues Music Award winner with the most recent two being in 2014 for both Album Of The Year and Acoustic Artist Of The Year. He has performed or recorded with Jimi Hendrix (discovered while playing in John's band), Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Duane Allman, Mike Bloomfield,
JJ Cale, Tom Waits, The Band, John Lee Hooker, Dr. John and many more. He remains the only person who has ever had both Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton in a band at the same time. A tireless performer, he continues to tour world-wide on an annual basis and has just released "Timeless", marking 50 years as a recording artist.

"John's sound is so compelling, complete, symmetrical and soulful with just his voice, guitar and harmonica, it is at first impossible to imagine improving it... He's a great force of nature. John sounds like a big train coming. He chops them all down." - Tom Waits

"John Hammond is a master... He is a virtuoso. A Conjurer... A Modernist... John is in a very small circle of men with a guitar and a harmonica. Jimmy Reed, Howlin' Wolf, Bob Dylan. The guitar is an orchestra. He's sending messages. Storytelling. All mystery. Protection. The language goes out through the night... The Big Boom. Boom the room." - T Bone Burnett

"a blues legend with a voice like Robert Johnson's and a demeanor that belies his tear-it-up might before an audience" - The New York Times

The ISIS Apocalypse: The History, Strategy, and Doomsday Vision of the Islamic State
CMES, Room 102, 38 Kirkland St, Cambridge, MA
Wed., Feb. 17, 2016, 46p.m.

The Islamic State is one of the most lethal and successful jihadist groups in modern history, surpassing even al-Qaida. How has it attracted so many followers and conquered so much land in its relatively brief existence? McCants will discuss the Islamic States history, tactics, and goals, and the many ways in which it is more ruthless, more apocalyptic, and more devoted to state-building than any of its predecessors or current competitors.

McCants's recently-published book, "The ISIS Apocalypse", is based almost entirely on primary sources in Arabicincluding ancient religious texts and secret al-Qaida and Islamic State letters that few have seenand explores how religious fervor, strategic calculation, and doomsday prophecy shaped the Islamic State's past and foreshadow its dark future.

Seating is first come, first served. Unless otherwise noted in the event description, CMES events are open to the public (no registration required), and off the record.

Intercultural Musical Explorations in "A Coffeehouse Opera": Shakespeares "Othello," an Ottoman Eunuch and Bektashi Sufism
CMES, Room 102, 38 Kirkland St, Cambridge, MA
Tue., Feb. 23, 2016, 46p.m.

Composer Mehmet Ali Sanlikol reimagined Shakespeares "Othello" in an Ottoman setting, with Othello as an African eunuch and Desdemona as an Italian concubine, in "Othello in the Seraglio: The tragedy of Smbl the Black Eunuch". With Robert Labaree, writer of the operas script, Sanlikol created a 'coffeehouse opera' in which an Ottoman 'meddah' (storyteller) retells an historically-based legend of love and jealousy through early European and Turkish instruments, singing styles and musical languages. An important aspect of the work is Bektashi Sufism, which also found its way into several other works by Sanlikol that will be included in the presentation. The coffehouse opera Othello in the Seraglio will be performed at Oberon/A.R.T. in Cambridge on March 1st and 2nd: americanrepertorytheater.org.

Muslim Saints and Hindu Daughters: Kinship, Ethical Self-Fashioning, and Inter-religious Relations at Firoz Shah Kotla Dargah, Delhi
CGIS S354, 1730 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA
Fri., Feb. 26, 2016, 45:30p.m.



Relations between religions in South Asia have been seen as marked by either competition or syncretism. Is there another way of understanding the inter-religious interaction? Turning to the interactions between Muslims and Hindus at the popular Muslim saint-shrine of Firoz Shah Kotla in Delhi, Taneja offers another model in this talkone of religions opening up new potentialities of ethical life and self-fashioning for the others they interact with, without either conversion or the dilution of doctrinal specificity. At Firoz Shah Kotla, the ethics of social interaction are anti-identitarian. People actively avoid asking each others names, which easily identify ones religious community and caste. Instead, people follow an ethic of nameless intimacy, where they become friends and share intimate secrets while, on one level, remaining strangers. Women, for example, freely express their disaffection with the often oppressive structures of their natal and marital families. The ability to form communities of hamdardi (shared pain/empathy) while stepping out of ones socially determined identity, Taneja argues, is a major factor in the healing power of Muslim saint shrines such as Firoz Shah Kotla. This healing efficacy can be linked to anti-patriarchal strands within Islam and to the Islamic ethic of gharib-navazi (hospitality to strangers/others), associated in particular with the Chishtiya Sufi order in South Asia. By offering us a model of Islam as an ethical inheritance as opposed to a religious identity, Firoz Shah Kotla forces us to rethink normative ideas of religion, and the role of Islam in the ethical and religious life of North India.
