Welcome, dear reader and gentle listener both, to joshrutner.com!
I've been freshening the place up a bit, so do take a journey around the room and see what beauty you might find, sifting through the newly-tidied wreckage.
'So bear with this corncrake music, reader; plunge into the immediate past; join the confabulation round the drying pump; try to follow these defunct and angry controversies of the day before yesterday, and if you cannot follow, skip. Brevis hic est fructus homullis!'
We at the Bop Shop were very disappointed that we weren’t able to bring you the third annual Respect The Holidays concert with the Respect Sextet this past December. Unfortunately schedules on both sides were unable to synch up, so we postponed it until a later date. And we’re pleased that we are now able to bring you New York-based Rochester nurtured, the fabulous Respect Sextet!
The guys have been up to a lot this year both individually and as a group, gigging around New York. They played a gig at the Stone performing a piece by Brad Lubman with violinist Olivia DePrato and cellist Lauren Radnofsky. But most exciting is news that they’ve recorded their next release. Those of you who attended last year’s concert were given a sneak preview of it with Respect playing the music of Sun Ra and Karlheinz Stockhausen. We have a feeling this next disc is going to really turn people’s heads.
We’re looking forward to this concert. A Respect Sextet gig is guaranteed fun for the (discriminating) musical family. Who knows what they’ll play? They probably don’t even know what they’ll play. But we know whatever it is, it’s going to be a show you won’t want to miss. We may not be respecting the holidays with this one but be assured that the band will be respecting you with some great music.
