MUSICIAN Born:

Ted Piltzecker

Ted Piltzecker has performed at festivals throughout the US and around the globe. His five albums as a leader have been critically acclaimed and influential in both the percussion and jazz worlds. The current release “Brindica” reflects his recent four-month venture around the world. It was recorded in New York and in Buenos Aires, and evokes musical encounters in Iceland, India, Nepal, and Bali. "Piltzecker writes and arranges tunes that draw on tango, second-line, Afro-Cuban, South African, and even carnatic influences, always in an organic, fun, and respectful way. The result is a stylistic kaleidoscope of an album that reveals new combinations of rhythm and harmony at every turn and always sparkes with wit and good humor." CD HotList Ted Piltzecker has received awards from the National Endowment, NY State Council, NJ State Council, Lincoln Center Institute, and the ASCAP Foundation

MUSICIAN Born:

Saso Popovski

The music of Saso Popovski is music of pure lines, concluded structures and lush imagination. Rhythmically and also melodically, his music alludes to Oriental patterns, which makes it a bit mystical. But there is nothing hermetically in it, as some of these kind of music excursions to Orient can be... Popovski organizes his compositions around a beautifully derived, clear, appealing melodious line, which is unmistakably supported by a bass player with a velvet sound and a drummer with consistent, concentrated rhythmization. Popovski finely enhance the basic river-like melody, carefully meanders through its possible by-paths and streams, but never loses the basic thread
