In the tradition of the Venice West Cafe (the legendary Beat hang-out at 7 Dudley Ave, aka Sponto Gallery from 1984-2008), local Venice musicians will celebrate the rebellious liberation of tuneful creativity. Jazz Funk Fest started at Sponto Gallery in 2005.
7pm: Black Shoe Polish (aka BSP and Rag’n'Bones) - Within the free collective Black Shoe Polish, words that should never be said collide with notes that should never be played. Fiery poetic readers Tryg Hanson, & Rex Butters slap sense into words through multi-dimensional discourse. Gerry Fialka, Pauli Dee, Alex Soschin & guests combine fantastical funky sounds from drums, guitars & keyboards in a cauldron of controlled chaos, creating ink stained improvisational interplay. Spoken Word and Free Improvisation as it was never meant to be, BSP reconvenes the Inconceivable with righteous rascality.
8:30pm: ERIC AHLBERG'S JAZZ WORKSHOP - Lyrical multi-instrumentalist Ahlberg, along with Sam Clay & Freddie Ginns, recall the explorations of Gil Scott-Heron, Public Enemy, Hank Williams, The Art Ensemble of Chicago, George Carlin and John Coltrane with tasty world beat tangents.
