The Return of Sarah Hughes 
with very special guest Anthony Coleman
Sunday, April 30, 2017 @ 4pm
Arts at the Armory Cafe  191 Highland Ave. Somerville, MA

Inline image

Sarah Hughes is an alto saxophonist, composer, improviser, educator, and art adventurer hailing from Maryland. She obtained her MM in Jazz Saxophone at the New England Conservatory in May of 2015 and currently freelances in and around Maryland, DC, Virginia, and New York. This marks her return to the area after moving back to Maryland.

While at the New England Conservatory, Sarah studied privately with Jerry Bergonzi, Ran Blake, Donny McCaslin, and Anthony Coleman, all of whom impacted Sarah's unique approach to improvisation and music-making. Sarah performed on Coleman's latest album, "You" and has performed with Coleman in concerts at the New England Conservatory as well as Roulette and The Stone in New York. Sarah studied composition in classes with Ken Schaphorst and also Ben Schwendener, with whom she has performed several duo concerts in Boston.

In September of 2015 Sarah toured Sweden as part of Amy K. Bormet's "Ephemera" and performed in Sweden's first Women in Jazz festival. She also recently taught an improvisation workshop, "Improvisation for Everyone: Games and Storytelling" for beginning, intermediate, and advanced instrumentalists in the 2016 Judith Lapple Summer Woodwind Camp in Fairfax, Virginia. Most recently, she went on tour with an improvising trio "Lead Bubbles", playing venues in New York, Montreal, and Toronto.

For this event, Sarah will be accompanied by the versatile pianist Jacob Hiser.

From the Sarajevo Jazz Festival to the Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow, Poland, Anthony Coleman’s musical odyssey has taken him through many cultures and led him to wear many hats as composer, improvising keyboardist, and teacher. Coleman joined the NEC faculty in 2006, returning to a school where he himself studied in the 1970s, during the birth of NEC’s Contemporary Improvisation program (then called Third Stream). In addition to his work as a studio teacher and ensemble coach, Coleman works with NEC’s Contemporary Improvisation students to organize a departmental concert each spring.

Ensembles led by Coleman have recorded extensively for Tzadik and include the trio Sephardic Tinge. He has also toured and recorded with John Zorn, Elliott Sharp, Marc Ribot, Shelley Hirsch, Roy Nathanson, and many others.

Coleman has been awarded grants from New York Foundation on the Arts (1988 and 2006), New York State Council on the Arts, and Meet the Composer. 

Anthony Coleman has recorded 14 CDs under his own name, and he has played on more than 100 CDs. His most recent CDs are You (New World, 2015) , The End of Summer (Tzadik, 2013), which features his NEC Ensemble Survivors Breakfast, Shmutsige Magnaten (Tzadik, 2006), a live solo performance from the 2005 Krakow Jewish Culture Festival that features interpretations of the songs of Mordechai Gebirtig; Pushy Blueness (Tzadik, 2006) and Lapidation (New World, 2007), both recordings of his chamber music, and Freakish: Anthony Coleman Plays Jelly Roll Morton (Tzadik, 2009). His Damaged by Sunlight (2010) was issued on DVD by the French label La Huit.
