Dave Burrell:

Distinguished composer-pianist Dave Burrell is an African-American performing artist of singular stature on the international contemporary music scene.

Standing out as a leading figure of the New York avant-garde scene in the second half of the '60s, Burrell quickly established himself as one of the most innovative pianists, collaborating with the emerging leaders in contemporary jazz and joining the groups of Marion Brown, Pharoah Sanders and Archie Shepp. He has played and recorded, among others, with Giuseppi Logan, Sunny Murray, Albert Ayler, Grahan Moncur III, Byard Lancaster, Sirone, Alan Silva, Clifford Thornton, Roscoe Mitchell. His dynamic compositions with blues and gospel roots recall the tradition of Jelly Roll Morton, James P. Johnson and Duke Ellington, as well as avant garde composers Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane." Dave Burrell is the recipient of numerous grants and awards including National Endowment for the Arts, Vision Festival Lifetime Achievement Award, Philadelphia Music Foundation, William J. Cooper Foundation, New York State Council on the Arts, Pennsylvania State Council on The Arts, MidAtlantic Foundation, John Garcia Gensel Award, and the Pew Fellowship in Jazz Composition.

Simone Weissenfels (Leipzig, Germany) has been active since the 1980s in experimental, jazz, and classical music circles. She is an improviser, composer, organizer, and educator who has worked throughout Europe, North America, and Asia. In addition to work with visual artists and actors Simone has performed with Gisela May, Keir Neuringer, Juini Booth, Marco Eneidi, Klaus Kugel, Elliott Levin, Jair-Rohm Parker Wells, Lol Coxhill, John Sinclair, Ian Smith, Adam Smith, Daniel Carter, Manfred Hering, and many others.
