happylucky no.1 spring music nights: 7:30 Nels Cline & Chris Lightcap 9:30 Ned Rothenberg & Adam Rudolph Duo

7:30 PM Nels Cline & Chris Lightcap

Bassist Chris Lightcap and Nels Cline will play compositions by Nels Cline, as well as by Carla Bley and Paul Motian, and they will improvise freely on them, concentrating on spontaneous melodic and harmonic invention. 

9:30 PM Ned Rothenberg & Adam Rudolph Duo

Composer/percussionist Adam Rudolph and composer/reed player Ned Rothenberg have a history of collaboration going back 40 years!

From Ned's Double Band to Adam's Moving Pictures and Organic Orchestra, they have a huge shared set of musical interests and skill-sets.

In all that time, there has not been enough opportunity for intimate small scale performances together.  So Adam and Ned are very happy to come to happylucky's beautiful (visually AND sonically) gallery space for a set of duos.  They will feature alto saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet and Japanese shakuhachi flutes together with Adam's wonderful percussion array.  This will be a major treat!
