John Clark's 'odd Couple Quintet' at Jazz Tuesdays in the John Birks Gillespie Auditorium at Nyc Baha'i Center
John Clark (French Horn) and Michael Rabinowitz (Bassoon), leaders of "The Odd Couple Quintet, are arguably the leading jazz players of these difficult instruments, and the group creates a fresh interpretation in today's language of the beautiful music of Mozart. John says "Although I was trained in classical music, I've always had an innate urge to improvise. I was fortunate to have teachers and mentors (particularly Gunther Schuller) who didn't discourage me from venturing into the jazz world with my horn. Early on, I had the idea to combine some traditional horn pieces with a jazz setting, but didn't clearly see a way to realize it. In the OCQ, I have found the perfect vehicle for this dream!
