Carl Safina and Natural Causes

Frank Melville Park, 1 Old Field Rd., Setauket - East Setauket

The focus of repertoire will be jazz from the 60s, when the groove got deep, the harmonies got wide, and the playing ranged from down home and dirty to high and outside.

In addition to his fine drumming, Carl Safina* is a brilliant writer who focuses on our relationship wit the natural world. This love and concern for our planet and our place in it has shaped the band's selection of songs; we'll be focusing on titles with natural/environmental themes such as Dolphin Dance, Equinox, Nature Boy, Red Clay, Sidewinder and many others.
