For the Conservatory of Flowers inaugural summer concert, New York City-based jazz quartet Rose & the Nightingale premiere Spirit of the Garden on the West Coast.
Rose & the Nightingale is a powerhouse all-female quartet of virtuoso jazz improvisers and chamber musicians, featuring music that blurs the boundaries of jazz, pop, and art song. With "adventurous cello songstress" Jody Redhage, Grammy-nominated improvising violinist Sara Caswell, Juno-nominated pianist and singer Laila Biali, and improvising vocalist and trumpeter Leala Cyr, Rose & the Nightingale plays music that celebrates the sublimity of gardens as expressed through song & poetry. Rose & the Nightingale's live performances awe and uplift audiences with the power of the quartet's fiery rhythmic energy, sublime harmonies, and lyrical beauty.
The Spirit of the Garden blurs the boundaries of world music, folk, and jazz improvisation. The performance integrates poetry about gardens and nature as the lyrics to the songs, as inspiration for improvised interludes, and as thematic threads through the concert. As a very special component of the Conservatory of Flowers event, Rose & the Nightingale collaborate with local San Francisco poets Evan Karp and Silvi Alcivar, setting their new compositions about the Conservatory to music, to be premiered at the event, with the poets.
The event runs 2 hours, including a 15-minute intermission and a post-performance Q&A.
