The opening set at Soup and Sound will display Noah's recent collaboration with singer-songwriter Rani Arbo, a partnership that has given voice to some of his most recent songs with words, many of them musings on the topic of mortality. Following this will be a set by Trio 149 as they prepare to enter the studio a few days later to cut their first album. A two-keyboard collaboration with pianist Jen Allen, the group focuses on uplifting and thought-provoking material, pulling together a variety of musical influences, from John Coltrane, Larry Young, and Thelonious Monk to Stevie Wonder, Sting, and Nina Simone.

The Litchfield Jazz Orchestra will play music the music of Carole King and Carly Simon arranged by Jen Allen. Time TBA
Trio 149 is the brainchild of jazz pianists Jen Allen and Noah Baerman. The unique combination of Baerman’s organ and synthesizer juxtaposed against Allen’s piano, results in an interactive synergy with a richly-textured timber that is at once striking and perfectly blended. With a repertoire dominated by original compositions by both Allen and Baerman, the group finds the sweet spot between modern jazz, classic soul music and other contemporary sounds, an amalgam of John Coltrane, Jimmy Smith, Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, Sting and many other influences.
Join Kris and myself for some holiday inspired jazz concoctions.
