John Clark & Rubens Salles: double-bill tomorrow, May 12, in Brooklyn

"Odd" = a Jazz Sextett with French Horn and Bassoon as lead instruments. They do jazz versions of two of the Mozart Horn Concertos - all 6 movements! You won't hear that live every day! (But you can in Brooklyn, tomorrow ...)

French Horn virtuoso John Clarke, of Gil Evans' Monday Night Orchestra fame, leads The Odd Couple Quintet + 1 with Pete Levin (keyboards), Mark Egan (bass), Karl Latham (drums), Freddie Bryant (guitar) & Michael Rabinowitz (bassoon; anyone remember his outstanding performance on Charles Mingus' Epitaph?

Well, this all-star combo will be doing a double-bill (with Rubens Salles Quintet opening) @ ShapeShifter Lab (18 Whitwell Place, Brooklyn, NY). Cover charge: $15. For reservations, please call (646) 820-9452.

The Rubens Salles Quintet features the NY-based Brazilian pianist/composer/arranger) leading Leco Reis (bass), Dan Pugach (drums), Michel Gentile (flute) and... John Clark!
