Free Lunch-time Concert with 

The Daniel Bennett Group



Daniel Bennett Saxophone/Flute/Oboe 

Nat Janoff Guitar

In the Lounge at 303 North
(just inside the Laura St. entrance).

Attendees may bring a brown-bag lunch to enjoy during the performance.


The Daniel Bennett Group has recently shared concert billings with artists like Bill Frisell, Charlie Hunter, Greg Osby, and James Carter. The band has released five critically-acclaimed albums in the last ten years. In 2013, the Daniel Bennett Group celebrated the release of "Clockhead Goes to Camp" with a sold-out concert at the Metropolitan Room in New York City.

New York saxophonist Daniel Bennett has been hailed as one of the most original and unpredictable musical voices of his generation. Insite Magazine called Bennett's music, "refreshingly capricious and trippy." The Village Voice raves, "saxophonist Daniel Bennett makes hay with an airy approach that's buoyant enough to conjure notions of East African guitar riffs and Steve Reich's pastoral repetition." Mr. Bennett recently composed the original musical score for the stage adaptation of Frankenstein at the Hudson Guild Theatre in Manhattan. The show was a top pick in The New York Times. Recent Off-Broadway theater performances include the North American premier of Legacy Falls and a revival of Swingtime Canteen at Cherry Lane Theatre. Daniel recently played woodwinds in Blank! The Musical, the first fully improvised Off-Broadway musical to launch on a national stage. The New York Times called the show, "Witty, Likable and Ludicrous!"

Guitarist Nat Janoff is one of the most active jazz players in the fertile New York City music scene. Nat Janoff has performed with artists like Michael Brecker, Matt Garrison, Kenny Burrell and Dave Samuels. In addition to playing with his own groups, Mr. Janoff has performed with the Daniel Bennett Group, R&B legend David "Pic" Conley, pianist Norman Simmons and drummer Victor Jones. Nat can be heard on Atlantic Records’ recording artist Debelah Morgan’s album, Dance With Me. He has been a guest instructor at the annual William Paterson University summer jazz camp. Nat currently leads his band at the legendary 55 Bar in Greenwich Village every month.

"Saxophonist Daniel Bennett makes hay with an airy approach that's buoyant enough to conjure notions of East African guitar riffs and Steve Reich's pastoral repetition."
- VILLAGE VOICE

“Daniel Bennett Group plays a mix of jazz, folk, and trance.”
- BOSTON GLOBE

"Saxist Daniel Bennett airs his lilting, potentially hypnotic compositions"
- TIMEOUT NEW YORK

Teen Tech Program; “Libraries are for Making Manga”.
If you occasionally like to daydream about living life in a manga, come and visit us at Bradham Brooks and will make a manga out of you by using a manga app. Basically, it allows you to pick out one of 32 manga-style frames and fit your picture into the stark, monochrome world of manga. Comes complete with Japanese captions we can’t read (would anyone like to translate?). The results are pretty fab.

Review
So this is the second book of the Numbers Trilogy, and I must say this totally surprised me (like plot wise and all)! This book revolves around Jem's son, Adam, and another girl that he meets at school. Like Jem, Adam sees people's numbers, their death dates, but he also sees something else. Nan is once again involved and plays a big part in Adam's life. I thought this was REALLY good, and you should read this book! Can I just add that this book is definitely more interesting and better than the first book, or well that's my opinion anyway.
