GOLDA SOLOMON “The Medicine Woman of Jazz” with PO’JAZZ

Written and Conceived by Mark Whitecage

Downstairs at The Cornelia Street Café
29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, 212-989-9319,
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15th, 2007, 6 - 8 PM
$15 ($10 students/seniors) includes one drink
ROZANNE LEVINE alto and Bb clarinets, bamboo flute
MARK WHITECAGE alto sax, clarinet, libretto
ROSI HERTLEIN violin, voice

Rosi Hertlein: “Hertlein is a player of very resilient technique. Her phrases and articulation recall Leroy Jenkins, but her tone is fuller and more singing." — Joe Milazzo,

Rozanne Levine: "Crystal Clarinets is a model of taste, restraint, and intelligence...Rozanne plays with just a hint of vibrato; she's a lyrical soloist and a deliberate player who pays close attention to texture and dynamics and supports her band mates with refinement and empathy." —Chris Kelsey, Jazz Now

Golda Solomon: “Poet Solomon...Think of it as Jack Kerouac revisiting the Mile High City and grabbing a sandwich at the New York Deli while in town.”
— Norman Provizer, Rocky Mountain News

Mark Whitecage: "The man is an absolute master of the alto saxophone and clarinet (not to mention a dab hand at electronics), and one of the finest and most original jazz composers in the world, and has been for years." —Dan Warburton, Paris Transatlantic, Signal to Noise

PO’JAZZ at CORNELIA STREET is one big friendly party of good words, good sounds, and good food.”

— Gladys Serrano, Mutable Music
