Bassist Jason Davis and Earthsound present an adventurous program of original music and improvisation with beautiful recorded environmental sound from Costa Rica, Antarctica, New England and other locales. Earthsound is a unique ensemble that expands the concept of “world music” to include the vast range of sounds of the natural world. Earthsound has performed at notable venues in the Boston area, and their first CD Movement has been critically acclaimed.
Jason Davis studied jazz bass with Bruce Gertz at Berklee College of Music, and obtained a Master's degree in classical bass performance from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He also has an extensive background in environmental science and education, holds a Master’s degree in ecology from the University of Florida, and has done field research in Costa Rica, and worked as a ranger for the National Park Service.
A part of the Taylor House Music and Arts Series, this concert will feature flutist Amir Milstein, pianist Doug Johnson, and drummer Bertram Lehmann. The Taylor House is a warm and intimate venue with wonderful acoustics and a welcoming atmosphere with complimentary wine and dessert. Earthsound's first CD Movement will be on sale at the show.
