The Outnumbered

May 1 at the Bartos Theater at the MIT List Visual Arts Center

Ampersand 8 will be a night of cutting edge jazz and improvised music. Taking place on May 1 at the Bartos Theater at the MIT List Visual Arts Center, it will feature the Outnumbered, a group of some of New England’s finest post-modern jazz musicians. The Outnumbered showcases the varied compositions of Jason Robinson, Josh Rosen and Charlie Kohlhase as well as musical contributions from Curt Newton and Bruno Raberg. Opening will be Carl Testa, a key member of the New Haven improvisation scene, performing on solo bass and electronics.



 "Rosen and Strickland are more than just in sync - they often sound like a single musician playing two instruments." - Boston Herald

"With the soul of an improv jam session, these two are one of the tastiest, new treats to come along in a while. Fine stuff that adults will love hearing when they are in an off-the-clock mode. Check it out." - Chris Spector, Midwest Record

Jazz masters George Garzone, and Mick Goodrick, join Phil Grenadier, trumpet, Josh Rosen, piano, Lello Molinari, bass, and Marcello Pellitteri, drums, in creating boundary stretching sounds; music that is freely improvised and carefully composed. 

"sets new limits for contemporary jazz" Jazz Times

"a top pick of the year!"


"absolutely gorgeous...throughout this mix of alternately melodic and more tonally abstruse jazz, there's a sensibility ranging from sly and funny to warmly, indelibly tuneful." - Lucid Culture
