Bruno Raberg/Ned Rothenberg duo
These two seasoned and creative improvisors will respond to the moment, to each other, and to the wonderful sonic environment of the CRMII boiler room in an intimate dialog employing traditional and non-traditional sounds and colors.
Since arriving in the US from his native Sweden, internationally renowned bassist & composer Bruno Råberg has become a mainstay on the Boston music scene. He has released 11 recordings as a leader and 30 as a sideman. Råberg has performed and recorded with Sam Rivers, Julius Hemphill, Donny McCaslin, Chris Cheek, Kenny Werner, George Garzone, Bob Moses, Mick Goodrick, Ben Monder, Bruce Barth, Jim Black, Matt Wilson, Ted Poor, Mike Mainieri, and others, with performances throughout Europe, Scandinavia, USA, Japan, India, Africa, and Central America, and at jazz festivals in Pori, Umbria, Monterey, Nancy, Bologna, Graz, Stockholm, Boston, and Cape Town. Råberg is a professor at Berklee College of Music and has conducted Berklee clinics & performances in Spain, Poland, Czech Republic, Italy, Mexico, Brazil, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Japan, and Costa Rica. He teaches in the Berklee Global Jazz Institute’s Masters Program, led by Danilo Perez.
Composer/Performer Ned Rothenberg has received international acclaim for both his solo and ensemble music, presented for the past 33 years on 5 continents. He performs primarily on alto saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, and the shakuhachi - an endblown Japanese bamboo flute. His solo work utilizes an expanded palette of sonic language, creating a kind of personal idiom all its own. In an ensemble setting, he leads the trio Sync, with Jerome Harris, guitars and Samir Chatterjee, tabla, works with the Mivos string quartet playing his Quintet for Clarinet and Strings and collaborates around the world with fellow improvisors. Recent recordings include this Quintet, The World of Odd Harmonics, Ryu Nashi (new music for shakuhachi), and Inner Diaspora, all on John Zorn's Tzadik label, as well as Live at Roulette with Evan Parker, and The Fell Clutch, on Rothenberg’s Animul label.
