FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE February 19, 2013
David Cain & Paul Wertico, Feast For The Senses Concert, Comes to WILL-TV Friday, March 1st at 9 p.m. on PBS
Rare Concert Features 7-time Grammy Award winner Paul Wertico and Award Winning Multimedia Artist David Cain and Other Top- Flight Musicians recorded “Live-in-Concert” – The Feast For The Senses: An Evening of Improvised Music
The Feast For The Senses “evening of improvised music becomes a thrilling journey into the imaginations of multi-instrumentalist David Cain and 7-Time Grammy-awarding winning drummer Paul Wertico. Every time you think you’ve got this one nailed down, Feast for the Senses – which more than lives up to its title’s lofty promises – takes another astonishing turn. For instance, “If I Could Get One Answer” begins with the sort of coiled, darkly mysterious fusion that fueled Miles Davis’ early-1970s recordings. But this is no straight-ahead fusion …” (Nick DeRiso)
This very special event will air on WILL-TV, Friday, March 1 at 9 p.m. on PBS. (Check local listings.)
One of the most versatile and musical drummers in music today, Paul Werticoʼs playing has been compared to an “Impressionist painter.” Heʼs been described as “an inspired madman” and “a restless innovator.” Paul is internationally known for his playing with the Pat Metheny Group (7 Grammy Awards & 3 Gold Records), Paul Winter, Kurt Elling, Ken Nordine, Larry Coryell… as well as his own groups.
David Cain, originally from New York City, greets his audience with his “Sting-like” soulful voice, the worldʼs only candy red tenor saxophone, and electronic “sound design ear-candy.” Not only has he been nominated for two Grammy Awards, he is also a filmmaker, author, teacher and a Hoogland Center for the Arts Resident Artist.
The Feast For The Senses, recorded live at The Hoogland Center for the Arts, was produced and directed by David Cain and Paul Wertico. DVDs, Video On Demand, photos and other material are available here.
