Following in the footsteps of popular single-instrument showcases like Banj-O-Rama, Accordi-O-Rama and Zing Go the Strings comes the inaugural Harp-O-Rama. This pan-cultural concert features legendary Celtic harpist Máire Ni Chathasaigh (who has been called “the greatest Celtic harper of our age”) and her partner, guitarist Chris Newman. They’ll perform alongside the likes of Brooklyn kora player Kane Mathis and Correo Aereo, featuring Abel Rocha and Madeleine Sosin playing traditional harp styles of Venezuela, Mexico and original compositions. Adding to the whimsy will be interstitial video performances by Harpo Marx -- yes, that Harpo Marx, who was not only a film star but also an extraordinary classical harpist -- and the namesake of this event.

Cyrus Chestnut and Stefon Harris were great - Stefon is a treat to watch because of his chaotic yet precise flurry of mallets over the vibraphone. The venue has pretty good views from anywhere in the room, the sound was good, and they played a decently full set. Only real issue was a lot of the audience weren't really people used to the manners of a jazz show - kept getting up to leave during the songs (presumably to pee). It would have been nice if Cyrus and Stefon had stuck around to meet people after the show - maybe they did and just didn't announce it - but it was a very good show and I want to see both of them again ASAP.
