DAVID GROLLMAN, BRAD HENKEL AND VALERIE KUEHNE
Live at Downtown Music Gallery, NYC
September 27, 2009, 8pm set

by Steve Koenig

One of my favorite things about Downtown Music Gallery's free-admission Sunday evening music series is the chance to discover some excellent musicians you'd never heard of before, but know you will remember. This was such a night for me.

The Boise Experimental Music Festival wrote this about our drummer: "David Grollman scrapes, bows, slaps, hits and rubs very small drums and cymbals. He is best known for drumming in the underground bands Uncle Gut and The Penny Regime. Once found in a German restaurant playing drums in lederhosen with Ben Folds. He can most often be found in the East Village of NYC doing percussion duets with his four year old daughter." Here, he also played plastic tubes.

Trumpeter Brad Henkel, in this concert, also played beheaded balloons and spinning-top mutes.

Cellist Valerie Kuehne also contributed some well-executed vocals. She studied at the Mannes College of Music/The New School, and earning her B.A. in poetry, philosophy and cello performance. She's rightfully been described as "an electrically charged virtusoso of all-purpose cello" and a "classically trained connoisseur of Bach and Britten," and if you get in touch with her, it's $10 for her handpainted album with David.

The set was recorded with no edits.

Please support the musicians by buying their recordings and attending their performances. If you like what you hear, ask to get on their mailing lists. David Grollman has a CD available with Rob Price, and another with Valerie, both available from Downtown.

We thank David Grollman, Brad Henkel, Valerie Kuehne and Bruce Lee Gallanter of Downtown Music Gallery for sharing this music with us.
