Emily Browder Melville and Friends, featuring Mark Shilansky's FUGUE MILL
Emily Browder Melvilles voice has been heralded as sheer lagniappe by the Boston Globe. She brings purity of tone, emotional honesty, and an eclectic background of opera, jazz, and musical theater to her singular performance style. Her program, American Heart, features tunes by Dan Fogelberg, Jimmy Webb, Paul Simon, and others . . . exploring love that reaches across the distance.
Mark Shilansky and his group Fugue Mill weave jazz through the fabric of Bluegrass, Celtic, and Classical music, creating a complex yet attractive blend of musical styles and traditions. Original group pieces are featured side by side with music by such composers as Thelonious Monk, Leonard Cohen, and Samuel Barber. Violin and mandolin augment the lineup, creating a transparent and vibrant palette of improvisation and counterpoint. Members of the group combine their wide-ranging experience into a musical melange that explores diverse idioms, linked through improvisation and groove.
With Eric Byers, Kathleen Flynn, Matt Glaser, Chris Rathbun, and Ethan Setiawan.
