RESONANCE FESTIVAL


The Resonance Festival

This festival focuses on the growing impact that Poland is having on the contemporary Jazz and Improvised Music scene, bringing work that has happened primarily in that country to the United States. The Resonance Ensemble provides the backbone to the programming- members of the smaller bands involved all belong to the full ensemble- and the large group will perform new music written for the occasion by Ken Vandermark, which is inspired and dedicated to the poetry of Czesław Miłosz. To coincide with the Resonance Festival there will be 2 brand new albums released: “Last Train To The First Station,” by the Reed Trio (on Kilogram), and “Kafka In Flight,” by the Resonance Ensemble (on Not Two).
