Andrea Brachfeld and Insight
Saturday, August 28, 7:30pm
Saint James Place, Great Barrington
We’re delighted to be returning to indoors programming with a remarkable program featuring Insight with Andrea Brachfeld. The quartet represents a who’s-who of today’s jazz scene. Headed by the acclaimed award-winning flutist Andrea Brachfeld, Insight includes Bill O’Connell, piano; Harvie S, bass; and Jason Tiemann, drums. The repertoire will feature “If Not Now, When,” Andrea’s original composition, made possible by a New Works grant from Chamber Music America.
Andrea’s first jazz gig was at age 16 when she put a quartet together, wrote her own music, and played at “All Night Soul” at the famed St. Peter’s Church in New York. From that point on, improvisation became a way of life, starting with the Jazzmobile workshops conducted by Dr. Billy Taylor. She has traveled and performed extensively, including Cuba, Croatia, and a 2-and-a-half-year stint in Venezuela. In 2015, she was named the “Best Jazz Flutist” by Hot House Magazine.
A comfortable, spacious venue, Saint James Place is visually and acoustically outstanding, our favorite new indoors venue in southern Berkshire County. Tickets are $25 in advance, and $30 on the day of the event.
The performance of the Andrea Brachfeld and Insight, presented in collaboration with The Jazz Loft and Riverview Jazz.org, is supported by the Presenter Consortium for Jazz, a program of Chamber Music America, funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation
