9/19/15 - DYAD: Jazz, and opera reimagined as jazz

02-Sep-2015
Society Cafe opens its 2015 - 16 season on Saturday, September 19th with DYAD:  Lou Caimano, alto sax and Eric Olsen, piano.  Jazz, and opera reimagined as jazz.

"Sometimes a simple comment made in passing becomes the seed that blossoms into a beautiful idea. Operatic soprano Pamela Olsen confided to her husband, pianist Eric Olsen, that Lou Caimano’s alto playing reminded her of an opera singer. This suggestion became the concept for DYAD Plays Puccini, re-imagining Puccini’s most beautiful classical compositions as contemporary jazz arrangements. With that, a new musical adventure for the Dyad partnership was born, fusing the two streams of classical and jazz music. In DYAD plays Puccini, Olsen and Caimano bring ten timeless Puccini melodies into the 21st century with grace, style, virtuosity, and originality."
