A concert of original jazz compositions from all over the map.
David Lopato will perform in public for the first time in over a year with his longtime collaborators at Arts Society of Kingston. His extremely eclectic compositions range from straight ahead jazz to blues, Brazilian, avant-garde, world musics and spoken word pieces. It will also be his first performance since finally becoming a full-time Hudson Valley resident! Lopato is the recipient of numerous composition and performance grants and awards from the N.E.A, N.Y.F.A., Meet the Composer et al, as well as a Fulbright to study Javanese gamelan in Indonesia. His most recent 2-CD recording, Gendhing for a Spirit Rising, was hailed by Downbeat Magazine as “unlike anything you are likely to hear this year (or any year). Lopato’s music is the genuine article.” (4.5 stars)
