Rapport, linkage, consonance — that’s exactly what musician/engineering professor Ken Jolls will bring to the Cornelia Street Cafe on January 5. With musicians-turned-health-care-professionals Linsy Farris, Hal Winfield, and David Levine on bass, guitar, and drums, Ken will demonstrate just how “good vibe-rations” can be. A long-time devotee of the instrument made popular by Lionel Hampton, Ken and his healthy quartet will play tunes from the great years of jazz.
But what would an engineer be without a little science? Don’t be surprised if you hear something also about vibrating bars and sine waves and organ pipes and dampers and fistfulls of mallets (with even a little body english thrown in to make it all work). Leave your worries at home — there’ll surely be a doctor in the house!
