SLAVIC SOUL PARTY. Fiery Balkan brass, throbbing funk grooves, Gypsy accordion wizardry, and virtuoso jazz chops: Slavic Soul Party! is just what it says. Brash and strong as slivovitz, these nine musicians have forged a virtuosic new brass band music in the heart of New York City; their Tuesday bacchanal is a destination for locals and brass band fans from around the globe. SSP!'s last five albums (NY Underground Tapes, Taketron, Teknochek Collision, Remixed, and Bigger) are all available from Barbès Records. John Carlson & Kenny Warren (trumpet), Peter Hess (sax/clarinet), Peter Stan (accordion), Tim Vaughn & Matt Musselman (trombone), Ron Caswell (tuba), Matt Moran and Chris Stromquist (tapan/snare/darabouka). $10

MIKE NEER's STEELONIOUS.
Steel guitar player Mike Neer reinterprets the Thelonious Monk repertoire through the multiple prism of Rock and Roll, Rockabilly, Country, Hawaiian and Western Swing with a heavy dose of improvisation and with production techniques a la Les Paul and Danny Gatton. Somehow, the result never sounds like novelty, but rather a worthy and beautiful tribute.

THE MANDINGO AMBASSADORS. Every Wednesday
Guitarist Mamady Kouyate has been at the forefront of Guinean music since the 1970’s. He is best known as one of Bembeya Jazz’s guitarist but he has really made his mark with his own band, Les Ambassadeurs du Mandingue. “Dazzling vocal and guitar patterns over a rhythm section that is like a perfect system” Ben Ratliff, NY Times.

ENSEMBLE ADILEI. Georgian ensemble Adilei performs traditional Georgian polyphonic songs and chants. Most of the members were introduced to folk singing in their families or children’s music groups early on in life. Adilei focuses on the songs from the province of Guria in Western Georgia. Gurian music relies heavily on improvisation and all the voice parts move independently of each other, creating contrapuntal polyphony. Gurian song is also characterized by krimanchuli , a yodeling technique.
The ensemble has had several solo concerts throughout Georgia and participated in a number of notable folk music festivals, including International Symposium on Traditional Polyphony, held in the Tbilisi State Conservatoire.

SUPERMAMBO! A Vibes Tribute to TITO PUENTE. Mambo King and timbalero extraordinaire Tito Puente was also an accomplished vibraphone player. The instrument was prominently featured on his early mambo recordings. Felipe Fournier is a percussionist and vibes player from Costa Rica who plays with classic Salsa outfit Our Latin Thing and Ruben Blades. His tribute to Tito Puente emphasizes the King of the Timbales’ Mambo years and vibes performance.

REGIONAL DE NY. Lyrical melodies, contrapuntal harmonies, and a swinging rhythm section: choro is Brazil's answer to early American jazz. The Regional de NY performs classic and original arrangements of Brazil's oldest popular music with deep groove and a love for improvisation. Personnel: Hadar Noiberg - flute; Vitor Gonçalves - accordion; Kahil Nayton - cavquinho; Cesar Garabini - 7 string guitar and Ranjan Ramchandani - pandeiro.
