January 2009

It’s the new year and Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber is in a celebratory mood!!

We wish each of you a happy and healthy 2009.
2009 commences:
–  our tenth year in existence.
– and a boss-banging bunch of events, some we can speak of now, and some we’ll speak of later. (like the release of our first full studio recording in five years.)
For the now, come join us on Sunday, January 4th at our home-away-from-home Zebulon Cafe in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. There will be music, a toast, more music and much more toasting, and
of course we’ll top that off with a dab of even more music.

On Saturday, January 10th, Burnt Sugar will be in effect at Brice Rosenbloom’s Winter Jazz Fest with a performance at 12:40am at Kenny Castaways. (Please check http://www.winterjazzfest.com/ for full details. )
If you are involved with the APAP conference in Manhattan that weekend, let us know as we can put you on a gratis guest list for our performance.
We’d love to meet you and make arrangements to bring the Burnt Sugar express to your hamlet, city or town.

Being a new year there’s nothing more exciting than performing at a new venue and that’s what we’ll
be doing as Burnt Sugar closes out the month on Friday, January 30th with a first-time appearance at
the Multi Media Arts Center (MMAC) in Bloomfield N.J.  Please check our website calendar page or
myspace page for specific details on all the dates mentioned above.

With an alumni that amongst others, consists of Vijay Iyer, Matana Roberts, Julia Kent ( Antony & the Johnsons ) and Captain Kirk Douglas ( The Roots ), we’d like to give a shout-out to our boy, flutist/percussionist and world-renowned installation artist Satch Hoyt.
Satch has resided in Berlin the last few years, but that hasn’t stopped him from getting his sugar fix as he joined us in Paris last year for our performance at the Son D’Hiver festival and took Lewis Flip Barnes Jr. and Dave Smith into a Paris studio to lay tracks for Satch’s upcoming release, “Griots and Cybercrooks.”You can check a few tracks out on Satch’s myspace page  http://www.myspace.com/griotsandcybercrooks
While we are on the subject of recording, Satch also has authored a tune on Grace Jones current release, Hurricane (PIAS/ Wall of Sound).  His track, “The Funkey” is an additional track on download versions and it will only be available on certain versions such as the Japanese digital downloadable release.  Get, get get it Satch!!
We have Big, Big news in the coming months and that’s all we’ll say…. for now.
Love and Peace in 2009,
Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber
