Dave Eggar is a cello virtuoso and one of our most frequent guests at WKCR – I am posting this short podcast up now because he’ll be performing live today 6-9pm on May 2, 2012! A prodigy, he first played with Metropolitan Opera at the age of 7. He is not limited by genres, his latest album, Kingston Morning features legend of bluegrass Ralph Stanley, and reggae legends Sly and Robbie and Luciano. He’s performed and recorded across the spectrum from Beyonce to Bon Jovi to Lucinda Williams to Michael Brecker. This sweet version of “Bird Cage” capped off an extended jam at WKCR.
This group features Tom Perozzi on Bass and Chuck Palmer on drums.
Here’s video of another performance of Dave and the Quartet on our show.
Originally broadcast live on WKCR radio in NYC, this podcast features live performance and interview with Karavika. Karavika was formed by violinist Trina Basu and cellist Amali Premawardhana who created a sound that combines their love of the music from the golden age of Bollywood, Indian and Western classical traditions and improvisation. They perform live and are joined by bassist Perry Wortman and Sameer Gupta. Their new album Sunrise is now available as a pre-release at their website.
