  1. Jazz composers Alex Coke and Carl Michel will present an evening of their own and others' works this October 20, 2021 at 7:30pm in the new State-of-the-Art Draylen Mason Studio. Home of classical radio station KMFA, Coke and Michel's sextet will be the first jazz group to be presented in the new space. Leading an ensemble whose members individually excel in several musical genres and, collectively, create a unique and memorable soundprint, saxophonist-flutist Coke and guitarist Michel bring together a group that includes Austin Symphony principal harpist Elaine Barber, pedal steel player Bob Hoffnar (Liminal Sound Series), double bassist James Suter, and percussionist Carolyn Trowbridge on vibes. Performing compelling music with origins in jazz, classical, folk, extended technique and improvisation, this unique ensemble is an outgrowth of Coke and Barber's popular weekly Driveway Concert Series that ran from April 2020 through June 2021. The evening concert and accompanying CD feature music from a new recording, entitled The Emissary, inspired by artist Christopher Hynes, whose painting of the same name graces the CD cover. With the reimagining of compositions penned by Coke, Michel, Paul Motian, Hildegard von Bingen, and Huddie Ledbetter (Leadbelly), and an exciting new CD to see and hear, the evening promises to be a stellar experience of art, music, and culture. Welcoming any and all interested ears, the studio will have an open, general admission seating plan to allow for social distancing. Masks are required and all ages are welcome. Presales are encouraged as seats are limited. Tickets are $20 or $35 with a CD. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/alex-coke-carl-michel-sextet-at-the-draylen-mason-studiokmfa-tickets-179274383507
