Please join Ars Nova Workshop for the record release celebration of 'Ships With Tattooed Sails', the new recording (featuring guitar icon Bill Frisell) from the all-star trio Jewels & Binoculars. The trio uses the power of the tried and true folk song forms as the starting point for their improvisational flights, all the while keeping the power of the words and images fresh in mind. Featuring multi-reedist Michael Moore - a main figure in the Dutch creative jazz scene - who has collaborated extensively with major Dutch improvisers including drummer Han Bennink and pianist Misha Mengelberg, as well as American jazz musicians such as Fred Hersch and Gerry Hemingway. Jewels & Binoculars was born out of New York bassist Lindsey Horner and Moore’s mutual love of Dylan’s music, and included Dutch drummer Michael Vatcher, best know for his work with John Zorn's Spy vs. Spy project.
