!!Music in the W 104th St Community Garden this Thursday, Aug 5, 7-9PM!!

Please stop by the W. 104th St Community Garden this Thursday for an evening of music. The program will include:

N=1 is Columbia University researchers Alan Tenney on saxophone; Darrick Li on drums, Ian Tattersall on electric cello; Tim Spencer on bass guitar; and featuring singer/songwriter Ashley Juavinett on guitar and vocals… don’t worry, we all have day jobs.

Pianist, composer, singer and songwriter Chris Blacker recently moved to NYC from Seattle, where for the past seven years he collaborated with artists including cabaret-noir act Circus Contraption, gypsy jazz groups Hot Club Sandwich and Pearl Django, classical pianist/composer Amy Rubin, folk singer Jes Raymond, and music theater legend Jon Cypher. In 2006 Chris Blacker received an ASCAP Foundation Young Jazz Composer Award for his composition “Tidal.” Chris’s performance may include songs from his recently-released EP “Another Red Night” as well as a work-in-progress composition inspired by the W 104 Garden!


Brian Gottesman is a guitarist/keyboardist/singer/songwriter/W104th St Gardener(!). In the 1990’s Brian cofounded the legendary Boston-based funk band Chucklehead and subsequently formed the band Rype as a vehicle for his original melodic rock songs. Brian has released critically-praised albums both as a band leader and solo artist, including Extra Virgin (1995), Pardon My Mess (2001) and The Sound of Yes (2003).

“[Brian’s] talent is extraordinary… remarkably honest and uplifting… a special achievement.” – Steve Morse (WBOS, The Boston Globe)


Ashley Juavinett is a Philadelphia-based singer songwriter who shared her considerable talents with the W104th St Garden during Make Music New York. Ashley has impressed audiences at World Cafe Live in her native Philadelphia and at Cafe Vivaldi in NYC, where she performed this summer in support of her self-released EP Twenty Miles to Freedom.
