  • The Fall 2019 Friends of @uwmadlibraries Book Sale is happening, and Friday prices are in effect until 7pm today. Tomorrow it’s $5-a-bag from 9am-1pm. We receive donations regularly. We search our holdings to determine what to add to our collections, and items we already have or we decide don’t align with our collections go to the Friends to be sold. Proceeds go to help all of us in UW-Madison Libraries make special purchases and preserve library materials, in addition to supporting the Friends annual lecture series and funding grants for the visiting scholar program. Come peruse the books, scores, CDs, DVDs, and LPs! Book Sale is in Memorial Library Room 116. #friendsofuwlibrarybooksale #librarybooksale #millsmusiclibrary

  • We had a good time this evening at Remember Me: An Evening of Poetry & Piano in Celebration of Jazz Pianist Mary Lou Williams, a Friends of @uwmadlibraries event at The University Club. Fabu delivered her poems about Williams, while Lawren Brianna Ware played and improvised on Williams’ compositions on piano. We talked to many attendees about Williams and the materials we’d brought. A favorite is this 1964 LP Williams released on her own label, Mary Records, with a David Stone Martin illustration on the cover.

  • Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain, and Edgar Meyer perform this evening at 8pm in Shannon Hall @wisconsinuniontheater. Indian flutist Rakesh Chaurasia will join the trio for this concert, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit SuccessWorks at the College of Letters & Science. ⁣
Banjoist Fleck and Double bassist Meyer have been playing together since 1983. They co-wrote a double concerto for banjo and bass in 2003 at the behest of the Nashville Symphony, with whom they premiered it. A couple years later, they were asked to create a triple concerto for the Grand Opening of Nashville Symphony’s new home, the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. They reached out to tabla virtuoso Hussain, he joined them to collaborate, and they premiered The Melody of Rhythm on September 9, 2006, with Leonard Slatkin conducting the Nashville Symphony. The work was recorded in 2009, and released by E1 as The Melody of Rhythm: Triple Concerto & Music for Trio. [COMP DISC 21579] ⁣
Tonight’s concert promises to be a more stripped-down performance, one in which the trio incorporates Chaurasia’s flute in their long-running conversation. @belafleckbanjo @officialzakirhussain @edgarmeyer2344 @chaurasia_rakesh #belafleck #edgarmeyer #zakirhussain #rakeshchaurasia #millsmusiclibrary
