Berkshires Jazz’s Insight with Andrea Brachfeld represents a who’s-who of today’s jazz scene. The quartet is headed by the acclaimed award-winning flutist Andrea Brachfeld, and includes Bill O’Connell, piano; Harvie S, bass; and Jason Tiemann, drums. The concert will feature “If Not Now, When,” an original composition made possible by a grant from Chamber Music America.
Andrea’s first jazz gig was at age 16 when she assembled a quartet, wrote her own music, and played at “All Night Soul” at St. Peter’s Church in New York. From that point on, improvisation became a way of life, starting with the Jazzmobile workshops conducted by Dr. Billy Taylor. She has traveled and performed extensively, appearing in Cuba, Croatia, and a 2-and-a-half-year stint in Venezuela, among other places. In 2015, she was named the “Best Jazz Flutist” by Hot House Magazine.
Tickets are $25 in advance, and $30 on the day of the event.
The performance of the Andrea Brachfeld and Insight, presented in collaboration with The Jazz Loft and Riverview Jazz.org, is supported by Presenter Consortium for Jazz, a program of Chamber Music America, funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
