Percussionist/composer Jon Seligman teaches percussion and world music at Towson University and McDaniel College in Maryland. His performing and recording credits include Barrio Andalusi, Carey Creed, the Christopher James Band, Gringo Jingo [Santana tribute band], Drew Gress, Furia Flamenca, Mahbood Len Seligman, Paul Austerlitz, Roya Multi-Cultural Ensemble, Todd Marcus and 3 Trees [with Tom Chess and Pitz Quattrone]. Mr. Seligman has received 3 Maryland State Arts Council Grants: in World Music Performance in 2014 and 2011 and Jazz Composition in 2003.
Alex Weber, bassist and composer, is based in Baltimore, MD and is on the faculty at McDaniel College. He graduated from Towson University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Jazz Performance. Upon graduation, Alex began his career as a freelancing musician playing jazz in local bars and restaurants. This has now spread out into him performing many differing styles of music including jazz, rock/funk, blues, fusion, bluegrass/country, folk and classical.
Alex joined the progressive metal band Exist in 2008 to cover bass and vocal duties and has since recorded two albums with them. He also plays in the local jazz/metal fusion group Talking Points and with Phil Cunneff's New Trio, which plays many of the various forms of jazz.
Savino Palumbo is a Baltimore-based jazz pianist with an enormous range of musical influences. Studying music since the age of 3, his focus has shifted from classical performance to jazz improvisation and composition, and even rock/metal and electronic music play a role in his approach to the instrument. He is one of the founding members of the cutting-edge group Talking Points, featuring a number of his compositions on their studio recordings. Savino regularly travels to and from New York to receive mentorship and guidance from some of the most accomplished pianists in the field, and is preparing to debut a trio there as a leader, featuring entirely original music. As a full-time performer and teacher, he can be found playing at any number of venues from week to week in the Maryland tri-state area.
The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call 410-857-2599.
