This Music/TM Series:

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 acknowledgement 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”).


Anthony Coleman:

 “Anthony Coleman is a prolific composer and pianist who has recorded numerous CDs under his own name, and has played on more than 150. His compositions have been commissioned and performed throughout the world. In the 1980’s, he was an important participant in what became known as the Downtown Scene, along with Glenn Branca, Elliott Sharp, Marc Ribot, and John Zorn, which broke down musical barriers, stretched genre definitions, and introduced Radical Jewish Culture as a compositional and improvisatory element”. Steve Coleman, Arts Fuse (boston), 2018:

“Part of what sets Anthony Coleman's (b 1955) music apart from that of his contemporaries is the intensely focused intellectual force with which he pushes against the sybaritic outward-moving impulse and compresses multiple vocabularies around a core poetic. Though compressed, the vocabularies do not merge or blend, they fray at the edges where the play of opposing forces is most intense, and languages contaminate and confuse each other”. New World Records.

His 2002 produces included a single record entitled EASILY Never Match You ON THIS Life, I WANT TO Feel THE SHORTAGE, a trio disk with Flaherty and Chris Corsano, and some albums with both nmperign and fellow trumpeter Axel Dörner.
