Fleurine at The Falcon

posted in: News | 0

Right before I take a little trip to South Carolina next week I will be headed in the opposite direction first, to the hippie-town of Marlboro in the Hudson Valley. This is the home of The Falcon, a button-factory-turned-roller-skating-rink-turned-cabinet-factory-turned-music-center.
What is the purpose of this endeavor, I hear you ask? Well, over the last year or two I have been playing with vocalist Fleurine and she’s bringing her band up there on Sunday, October 13. It features, besides myself, Doug Weiss on bass, James Shipp on percussion and special guest, or, as the chinese like to say, 特邀嘉賓, pianist Brad Mehldau. We’re playing mostly lesser known Brazilian music by Chico Pinheiro, Marcio Faraco, Francis Hime, and perhaps even Fleurine herself!
