The "Black Whole"- meaning the "sum of" all black music. A gathering of 5 musical souls, engendered to paying homage to the ancestral sounds. With the instrumentation of violin with loops, flute, clarinet, alto sax, drums, rhodes, organ, eclectic & upright bass which brings fresh arrangements that have reimagined sound explorations. The ensemble has an ever-evolving style, delving deep within themselves to seamlessly reconnect jazz to its roots, while consciously and simultaneously working to uproot it. Walter Kemp 3 piano rhodes / Scott Tixier violin, loops / Brent Birckhead alto, flute,clarinet / Rishon Odel, bass / Allan Mednard drums 

Juneteenth(said to be an amalgamation of June + nineteenth), is the public acknowledgement of the emancipation of enslaved Africans in the United States of America. Officially recognized as a federal holiday and in New York State, Juneteenth organically finds itself at an iconic stage of "becoming," --the dawning of the summer solstice, when the rays of our golden sun signify the coming of intense light, and bring with it, the carefree nature of both personal and collective freedom. Like summer solstice, Juneteenth says 'goodbye' to the fixed systems of work for the sake of others, and ushers in a welcomed rhythmic shift. #juneteenth #freedomfestival

Point9mile Collaborative - Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center’s Music Program (“Hallwalls”) and The Historic Colored Musicians Club (“The Club”) were afforded the opportunity to collaborate on a multiyear partnership to broaden each partner’s scope of live jazz concert programming through providing opportunities for growth, support, and collaborative platforms for professional musicians on today's scene.The .9mile Collaborative effectively combines longstanding and distinct audiences of  Hallwalls and The Club, and attracts new audiences for both organizations. In hosting co-programmed events, we seamlessly broaden the aesthetic scope of both Hallwalls’ and the Club’s programming, bringing the experimental, “Free Jazz” approach for which Hallwalls is world-renowned together with the Club’s 100-year tradition which literally coincides with the entire history of the American art form known as “Jazz” in all its styles, from its inception to now. .9mile's specific project will be production, promotion and development of annual jazz series events, workshops and recording opportunities for professionals in the industry. In the world of jazz, nothing is more important for a musician’s artistic and career development than providing a range of grass-roots opportunities for artists to grow, support one another, and work collaboratively.
