Phalanx Trio originated as a sub-grouping of several other band formations that all included Matt Mitchell, Kim Cass, and Kate Gentile. These bands include Mitchell’s sextet Phalanx Ambassadors; his large ensemble project A Pouting Grimace; and Snark Horse, Mitchell and Gentile’s compositionally co-led rotating cast ensemble. Cass and Mitchell also play in Gentile’s quartet.
The repertoire of Phalanx Trio includes compositions by all its members, and especially from the above ensembles. The trio setting allows for the unpacking, re-purposing and examining of compositions written for these groups.
In his recent album of original compositions, Maine guitarist Ryan Blotnick mines a bittersweet melodic/harmonic vein balanced by an African-influenced rhythmic elan. Conceived as an antidote to the more aggressive forms of New York jazz, KUSH offers freshly-minted waltzes, haunting ballads and more than a touch of Frisellian Americana, as well as a variety of grooves combining jazz and African feels. New York saxophonist Michael Blake, a longtime Blotnick mentor and collaborator, is the perfect foil, contributing his own blend of lyricism, heat, and harmonic depth. Also integral to the record’s success is the buoyant yet laid-back rhythm team of Scott Colberg on bass and RJ Miller on drums. Tonight’s concert features an all-Maine rhythm section with Ross Gallagher on bass, playing a mixture of new material and songs from KUSH.

Fort Greene is named for a fort built in 1776 at what is now the park’s central summit by General Nathanael Greene(1742-1786). The fort, originally named Ft. Putnam, aided in George Washington’s retreat after his defeat in the Battle of Brooklyn in 1776, and was reactivated during 1812 when a British attack was anticipated.
We will take a look at the famed Prison Ship Monument, as well as some of the area’s famed edifices such as One Hanson, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Brooklyn Tech, and some leftover buildings from the farm era.
