Improvisations at Real Art Ways: Joe Morris and Stephen Haynes present SPECTACLE

  • Real Art Ways 56 Arbor St Hartford, CT, 06106 United States (map)

The Improvisations series was created in 2011, and offers nine concerts each season and is now in its third year of presenting. Stephen Haynes and Joe Morris, who perform with a guest, or guests, sharing concerts of completely improvised music, curate the series. To date, their guests have included Tyshawn Sorey, William Parker, Ken Vandermark, Mark Dresser, Kyoko Kitamura, Fay Victor, Ingrid Laubrock, Sara Schoenbeck, Nate Wooley, and many others. 

The current season of Improvisations concludes with an evening-long assembly of musicians that mixes well-known players with emerging players in a series of ad hoc groupings of various sizes and culminating with all the players performing in the large ensemble, Abstract Forest.
