Concert
Falls Village, CT: Music Mountain: Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet. The ensemble’s insistently inventive program of traditional Afro-Peruvian music transformed by Gabriel Alegría’s highly personal synthesis of folkloric Afro-Peruvian rhythms, jazz, and other musical strains has led to a signature accomplishment: developing the band’s patented blend of deep scholarship and playfulness into a touring experience that conveys a vast knowledge of the music and, perhaps more importantly, transmits black music from coastal Perú as a way of life to its audiences. The Afro-Peruvian Sextet has produced five CDs, one DVD and one vinyl record to date. This “dynamic ensemble explores the affinities between modern jazz and the Afro-Latin continuum in Peru.” (The New York Times). 5 pm. (860) 824-7126  http://www.musicmountain.org/event/0dd36156b0b33714363d132bfabd5ad9

Concert
Millerton: Library Annex: Joint Chiefs. By the time they joined forces in 1995, Eliot Osborn, Louise Lindenmeyr, and George Potts were already in command of their distinctly different musical personas: Mr. Osborn, a grumbling singer/songwriter of the John Hiatt kind; Ms. Lindenmeyr, a backwoods Ricky Lee / Norah Jones; and Mr. Potts, a powerfully clear tenor with a Lyle Lovett-like affection for fat free arrangements. Without really thinking about being a band, the three began to sing and play as one in a living room, wrapping themselves around "great songs… the kind that are so well written they are able to transcend the style in which they were originally conceived." Intrigued by what they heard, they billed themselves as the Joint Chiefs "because it created such a humorous uplink while placing us on equal footing" and headed out into the local watering holes. Over the next few years, the Chiefs expanded their domain, becoming somewhat of a regional phenomenon while marshaling an audience drawn to what Michael Eck of WAMC termed "their tight harmonies and loose attitude." Following a tour of Morocco in 2009, the current line up took shape when percussionist Diana Herold became the fourth Chief in 2010. “Diana’s musicianship boosted us into a different stratosphere,” Lindenmeyr reflects. “It took some doing… we had to restructure who was doing what and when, but all four of us are ecstatic with the results.” Now “fully joined” as a quartet, the Joint Chiefs have taken aim at playing house concerts and “listening rooms” around New England.  Doors open at 7 pm with concert at 7:30 pm. Suggested door donation, $5. www.jointchiefsmusic.com 518-789-3340  http://nemillertonlibrary.org
