The Freedom Jazz Collective is a Free Jazz experiment. An ongoing series of concerts, exploring mass improvisation. This performance will feature a cross-section of Cleveland’s avant-improv community. The musicians will be split into three separate sections by their instrument type (horns, drums/percussion, strings/keyboards) and each section will have a conductor that will introduce musical “events” into the section’s improvisation. These “events” will in turn influence the other sections and the overall sound of the larger mass improvisation. The sections will be prepared independently of each other but will perform together as one large orchestra for the first time the night of the concert. This experiment will be conducted by Cleveland musicians: Dan Wenninger, David Mansbach, and Kyle Farrell. The next concert will take place on Friday, May 25th at the Go Factory located at 1936 W. 96th off of Madison. 3rd floor. Use the door near the street just inside the fenced in parking lot. This event is free but donations to AllGoSigns will be graciously accepted. BYOB.
Opening the evening will be “Music of Part, Ligeti, Latkovich & Latkovich“, a solo piano performance by Trepanning Trio’s own Peggy Latkovich. Doors open at 8:00PM. Music starts at 9:00.
Visible Voice Books is a wonderful Independent Book Store located in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio. They offer the kind of bookstore experience that can’t be had at the big box stores.

We will be performing from 7:30 – 10:00 PM as a part of their Garden Courtyard Music Series.

Kathryn Metz‘s first Trepanning Trio performance was a trial by fire. She brought a flute to an improvised set featuring klangenspiel, godbass, windup toy guts, hang, pan trees, bird calls, latex pig, saw blades, and a toy piano. In response, Kathryn broke into song like Ethel Merman. It was obviously meant to be.

Joel plays mandolin, bass guitar, guitar, construction-derived percussion, and other small instruments and composes music that bridges jazz, funk, klezmer, and Ethiopian music. Freygish/hijaz is his favorite scale. He hails from Chicago and fondly remembers many shows by the Ken Vandermark Quartet, the NRG Ensemble, musicians affiliated with the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, and No Wave bands. He has played bass since junior high and started playing mandolin in 2000 while earning his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Maryland. He studied klezmer mandolin with Paul Oorts in Silver Spring, MD, but is largely self-taught. In addition to Trepanning Trio, he plays funky free jazz with Todd Masuda. Joel and his wife, Lynn Phares, host Mechanic Street House Concerts, an Americana/roots-rock music house concert series (www.mechanicstreetmusic.com). By day, he is an economist who specializes in data analysis and labor and urban economics.
