Jazz trio includes Karl Berger, Ingrid Sertso and Ken Filiano
As part of its Monday Jazz Session, Quinn’s presents the ensemble KIK, at 8 p.m., Monday, Oct. 6, featuring the noted composer, arranger, conductor, pianist, vibraphonist and educator Karl Berger in a performance with vocalist Ingrid Sertso and bassist Ken Filiano.
Large among his considerable achievements, together with Ornette Coleman and Sertso, Berger created the legendary Creative Music Studio in New York City in 1971 before eventually migrating north to Woodstock, New York, where its legacy continues today with the Creative Music Foundation. CMS has been called the premier study center for contemporary creative music during the last five decades.
As a school and incubator for a wide array of creative music projects and ensembles, CMS brought together countless leading innovators in the jazz and world music communities. Musicians came to CMS from Asia, Africa, Europe and South America. Unprecedented in its range and diversity, CMS was an acknowledged phenomenon in the international music world, providing participants with the rare opportunity to interact personally with the musical giants of improvisation and musical thought on a daily basis.
Quinn’s is located at 330 Main St., in Beacon. As with all Monday jazz sessions at Quinn’s, the performance begins at 8 p.m. and there will be no cover charge at the door, though donations for the artists will be requested and gratefully accepted.
