Showcase Featuring Composer J.J. Beck (with Tim Haufe) @ Caffe Vivaldi

  • Caffe Vivaldi 32 Jones St New York, NY, 10014 United States (map)

Join us for a live performance by composer J.J. Beck with a set before-hand by singer-songwriter Tim Haufe at Caffe Vivaldi.

J.J. Beck graduated from Bennington College in 2006 with a BA in Music Composition and Performance concentrated around piano.  He continued his studies in New York City under jazz pianist and arranger Frank Ponzio. He is also the lead engineer and one of the founders of Akin Studios in Hoosick Falls, NY, where he currently composes.

 J.J.'s music naturally draws from the harmonically and rhythmically rich, complex music of his father (his father is noted jazz guitarist Joe Beck) but is truly driven by his own sense of innovation.  The results reveal influences from Thelonious Monk, Claude Debussey, Maurice Ravel, Olivier Messiaen, Arvo Part, Radiohead, Jason Moran, Robert Glasper, and Jaki Byard.

J.J.'s compositions can be heard here, and his studio work as Phantom Abraham can be heard here.

J.J. will perform at 8:30pm.

New York-based jazz guitarist and singer-songwriter Tim Haufe will be opening the showcase. Tim's music pairs a mixture of complex jazz voicings on the guitar with his elastic singing voice and evocative lyrics.

Tim's music can be heard here.

Tim will perform at 7:30pm.

Admission is free.
