The KDHX "Live from the Listening Room" series began in 2018. The program features St. Louis musicians speaking and performing at The Stage, with a portion of the event broadcast live on-air.  

 

This month, rapper Mvstermind presents a unique blend of socially conscious lyricism, vintage jazz samples and spacey, skittering beats that he calls "retro futurism hip hop." Cleo Jones, host of Rwthntc, is conducting an interview with the artist, which will air live on 'The Boom Box' with G Wiz. 

 

Plus, Mvstermind will make an exciting announcement about an upcoming project with KDHX. The show begins at 8 pm, with happy hour at 4 pm. Mvstermind is one of the emerging talents from this city. Do not sleep on this!

Jaimie Branch

 

Jaimie Branch, the 33-year-old trumpet player out of Chicago, isn’t new on the jazz scene here, but with her acclaimed debut album (Fly or Die) just out, she has made her arrival official, and belatedly triumphant. Even before the music hits you, there’s that title: Fly or Die. Words, in short, that many Americans, jazz musicians in particular, have had to live by in an indifferent country where the safety net is increasingly struggles.

 

Branch’s eerily beautiful compositions on Fly or Die bleed into one another like a suite. This is free jazz, in that it’s free of constraints. But there are elements of post-bop (Branch calls Booker Little “by far my favorite trumpet player”), third stream, chamber jazz, the avant-garde lyricism of Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry, even noise (Branch claims the German experimental trumpet player Axel Dörner, whom she came across while studying at the New England Conservatory, as an influence).

 

Fred Lonberg-Holm

 

Fred Lonberg-Holm is a cellist/composer currently living in upstate NY. His long history includes extended periods in Chicago where he was active in the free improvisation, experimental, noise, and pop scenes including the Vandermark 5, Wilco, and Peter Brotzmann’s Chicago Tentet as well as in NY where he played in numerous “downtown” projects including Anthony Coleman’s “Self Haters Orchestra” and “God is My Co-Pilot”.

 

Current projects include Ballister (w/ Dave Rempis and Paal Nilssen Love), Survival Unit III (w/Joe McPhee and Michael Zerang) and the Sync (w/ Eve Risser, Mike Reed and Sylvaine Helary).

 

Ståle Liavik Solberg

 

Ståle Liavik Solberg (born 1979) is a Norwegian drummer, percussionist and improviser. His main focus is improvised music and that includes groups and projects with John Russell, Steve Beresford, Frode Gjerstad, Paal Nilssen-Love, Fred Lonberg-Holm, John Butcher, Lotte Anker, Joe McPhee, Ryley Walker and many more. He has a BA in Jazz from University of Stavanger (2007) and MA in improvisation from the Norwegian Academy of Music (2011). Sozzleberg tours extensively and he has played at festivals and clubs like All Ears, Blow Out!, Copenhagen Jazz Festival, DOM, End of the road, Fete Quaqua, Jazzaldia San Sebastian, Mopomoso, Okka Fest, Cafe Oto, Constellation and more.

 

When Stoli L. Sozzleberg isn’t touring he spends time teaching drums and also programming and organizing the Blow Out! series and festival as well as Kongsberg Jazzfestival.

Tonight, KDHX hosts a staged reading by Solid Lines Productions. In 'The Twilight of the Golds' by Jonathan Tolins, "all is well when Suzanne Gold and her close New York family discover that she is pregnant – until a prenatal test reveals that the baby will most likely be homosexual. The news forces the entire Gold family to confront issues of bigotry, evolution and the limits of love." 

 

Directed by Tim Naegelin, this reading features Rachel Bailey, Chuck Brinkley, Deborah Dennert, Ted Drury and Brandon Riley. The show starts at 7:30 pm, with happy hour at 4 pm.
