‘Bowl of Embers’ concert April 13 in Other Side


UTICA — “A Bowl of Embers: A Concert” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 13, in The Other Side, 2011 Genesee St., (Next door to Café Domenico).

The concert will present a sonic version of Imagining America, a partnership between Hamilton College and The Other Side. All events in the series are free.

Performers are Professor of Music Michael “Doctuh” Woods (bass and composition), Tom Witkowski (piano), Rick Compton (drums), Bob Cesari (saxes), Joe Handy (guitar), Anthony Dangler (trumpet), and James Vees (trombone).

Doc Woods and his colleagues will debut eight selections and then open a dialog about music culture, improvisation, and work ethic.

“The idea,” Woods says, “is to create brand new music for people and to live and breathe our craft at speed and in the moment. The other aspect is to try and bring our skills to a point that they deserve to be exported all over the world.”

A secondary goal is to show that not all black music is angry.
