The 2nd convening, the music is deeply grounded in the relational, with a strong and engaging collective voice. Expect spontaneous offerings of groove and melody throughout. 

This Music Series: An Appetite for Adventure continues…


Kit Demos / bass - Stephen Haynes / cornets, flugelhorn, leader (coming up from Hartford, Ct.)

Pandelis Karayorgis / piano, keyboards 

Eric Rosenthal / drums and percussion


If Stephen were living here you’d know of him better because he’d be performing often enough, that important! Fact is, he’s gigging in NY and environs, besides teaching, respectfully enough that it’s time to perform NOW for us – been just before the Pandemic anyway—time to know why he’s a master and creator in demand!


And a New England / Boston collaboration: Initiated by a key and other metro-area musicians, to create a unique creative evening. 


And if not totally familiar with OUR musicians, now’s the chance to get to know our scene!

Bringing in the New Year with such New Music!


Kit Demos

Chrys 'Kit” Demos bass, DIY analog microtonal synthesizer, Boston-based, with extensive collaborations across the music spectrum.

"constantly researches the possibilities of electronics and new territories for the acoustic bass. All of that research opens doors to rethinking music in the moment. The results of his research are so musically organic that they give the impression they are inevitable, integral of the moment."

- S. Vandermark

Stephen Haynes is an improviser, arts organizer and recording artist.  His practice ranges from small groups to large orchestras with a focus on working directly with composers in the development of new music. His work is featured on Pillars, Tyshawn Sorey’s groundbreaking work for octet released on Firehouse 12 Records. He is also a founding member of Adam Rudolph’s East Coast version of Go: Organic Orchestra.

Haynes records for New Atlantis Records, most recently releasing Pomegranate, a quintet with Joe Morris, Ben Stapp, William Parker and Warren Smith. His pocket brass band, Knuckleball, features three cornets, tuba and drums with Taylor Ho Bynum, Herb Robertson, Ben Stapp and Eric Rosenthal. Expect a new recording release by this ensemble during 2021.

Haynes’ primary focus – since 2013 – has been the cornet. He performs on Schilke XA1 Shepherds Crook and Eb Soprano cornets as well as the 1040 FL flugelhorn and X4L Bb trumpet. Across all of his instruments, he relies upon a set of custom-designed Schilke mouthpieces.

Over the past 40 years, he has worked with a range of vanguard composers including Bill Dixon, Cecil Taylor, George Russell, Butch Morris, Rhys Chatham, LaMonte Young and Earle Brown.

This Music (TM) Series is a Boston musician’s initiative to recognize the creativity of many who haven’t been given the stage as leaders, often younger than the Jazz scene veterans; those with acknowledgment who can create a new project and musical ideas; and the unsung “gems” who aren’t in the public’ eye and deserve to be. The emphasis is on the freer forms, the adventurous (to help find a “home”).
