SATURDAY, March 29th at 8 & 10:30PM, the Inter-Media Art
Center (IMAC) in Huntington, Long Island will host a concert
with contemporary jazz sensations RUSS FREEMAN & THE RIPPINGTONS.
To The Rippingtons, innovation is merely business as usual.
For the past 15 years the group's signature sophisticated-yet-accessible
sound- combining jazz, pop, R&B, Latin and world music elements-
has defined and shaped contemporary jazz. It has made The Rippingtons
one of the most popular instrumental ensembles in the world.
Always at the technological forefront, The Rippingtons, led
by the gifted composer/producer/guitarist Russ Freeman, utilize
the most state-of -the-art instruments and recording techniques
available to create each album. Throughout the 90's, as their
sound evolved and their concerts took on deeper creative dynamics,
Freeman became aware of the fan's growing desire for a live
chronicle of the current show. The result is a vibrant, live
collection of the kind of intricate-yet-catchy compositions
we've come to expect from the group, which also includes drummer
Dave Karasony, percussionist Scott Breadman, special guest saxman
Eric Marienthal, keyboardist Bill Heller and bassist Kim Stone.
Freeman & The Rippingtons have produced eight smash hits
since the late eighties and continue to attract fans from throughout
the world with one of the most dramatic live shows in instrumental
music. IMAC is thrilled to welcome one of the world's top live
attractions to our stage.
