Jazz at Dada - Can You Hear Us Next Door? feat. Julian Smith, Hamir Atwal, Fraser Campbell, Zach Lapidus
Can You Hear Us Next Door? is a collectively led quartet featuring Fraser Campbell on saxophone, Julian Smith on bass, Hamir Atwal on drums, and Zach Lapidus on keyboards and synthesizers. Lauded as “Brooklyn’s Loudest Jazz Quartet” by the neighbors of the venue they played at weekly for four years, C.Y.H.U.N.D. has been delighting audiences and city officials alike in the local community since their first note. Living somewhere in between the sonic worlds of Ennio Morricone soundtracks and Paul Motian’s trio with Frisell and Lovano, the group delves headlong into a long-honed repertoire of originals, familiar toe-tappers, and sentimental standards. Fraser’s compositions, steeped in the peaty bogs of the Scotland of his youth, are married with the exotic sounds of synthesizers, bass and percussion — the resulting haggis-like mixture is encased in the sheep’s stomach of free improvisation and boiled, over the course of two sets, for your enjoyment. This performance at Dada is sure to be a cultural event for the ages. No refunds.
