My money, such as it is, i.e., not much, is on the black...

Roulette, a performance space in NYC, specifically Manhattan (and that's becoming a rarity, with most of the action now taking place in Brooklyn, and probably eventually in Queens, Staten Island, or Yonkers...and doesn't that just roll off the tongue) has put up some interesting video tidbits on Vimeo. I suggest you watch these while downing a bottle of Vitameatavegamin:

Roulette TV: MARY HALVORSON from Roulette Intermedium on Vimeo.



MARY HALVORSON QUINTET:

Jon Irabagon- alto saxophone
Jonathan Finlayson- trumpet
Mary Halvorson- guitar
John H├ębert- bass
Ches Smith- drums

Roulette TV: DARIUS JONES from Roulette Intermedium on Vimeo.



DARIUS JONES QUARTET

Lisle Ellis: Bass
Angelica Sanchez: Piano and Wurlitzer
Jason Nazary: Drums
Darius Jones: Alto Sax and Composition

Mr. Jones was just in town (CLE) with his collaborative combo Little Women, a gig to be treasured by all who were there...

Oh yeah, and click on the header to be taken to an hour of Henry Threadgill, commissioned by Roulette with funds by the Baisley Powell Elebash Trust.
