On Saturday night June 9th, Who Knows? appears at their regular New York City venue, the Yippie! Cafe. The show features Who Knows? members, guitarist/vocalist Richie Nagan, clarinetist Perry Robinson, and saxophonist Mark Whitecage.
The music of Who Knows? surges and eddies, taking surprising and sometimes sudden turns that can soften the sound to a whisper or raise it to a roar. Guitarist/vocalist Richie Nagan’s songs originate from his long-time study and love of the Grateful Dead and Pete Seeger, while his many performances with George Clinton’s Parliament- Funkadelic and Detroit drummer Muruga’s more free-form bands add other dimensions.
Saxophonist, clarinetist and composer Mark Whitecage is a musician whose creativity, adventurous spirit and beautiful tone have led to a long career filled with fascinating people and projects. He has collaborated with just about every musician of note, including bassists Dominic Duval, Joe Fonda, Adam Lane and William Parker; pianist Michael Jefry Stevens, drummers John Betsch, Paul Motian, Ed Blackwell, Peter LeMaitre, Jay Rosen and Lou Grassi; multi-instrumentalists Anthony Braxton, Gunter Hampel and Sabir Mateen; trumpeters Dave Douglas and Roy Campbell, Jr.; trombonist Steve Swell, guitarist Dom Minasi, clarinetists Perry Robinson and Rozanne Levine; vocalists Nicki Mathis and Jeanne Lee; and choreographers Jean Erdman, Murray Louis and Nancy Allison. Along the way he has led and co-led an array of notable bands including Liquid Time, The Glass House Ensemble, No Respect, The Nu Band, the Bi-Coastal Orchestra, and Drunk Butterfly. He has recorded over 50 discs, many of them award winners, including BushWacked – A Spoken Opera, No Respect – Duval/Rosen/Whitecage, Fractured Standards & Fairy Tales, Moon Blue Boogie, Split Personality, and Mark Whitecage & Liquid Time.
Clarinetist Perry Robinson is a master of the clarinet in jazz, folk and avant-garde music. He has worked with an incredible array of international musical artists, including the Brubeck Family, Gunter Hampel, Henry Grimes, Bill Dixon, Carla Bley, Archie Shepp, Charlie Haden, Badal Roy, John Carter, Anthony Braxton, Mark Whitecage, Dr. Michael White, Pete Seeger and George Clinton. He has been a mainstay of pianist Burton Greene’s Klezmokum and of drummer Lou Grassi’s Po Band. The Perry Robinson Quartets and Trios, featuring pianist Christoph Adams, bassist Ed Schuller and drummer Ernst Bier, have released six CDs and toured extensively in Europe. Recently Perry has been playing with Wynne Paris and Groovananda, the pianist Nobu Stowe, the Israeli clarinetist Harold Rubin, the Israeli composer-pianist Anat Fort, and in clarinetist Rozanne Levine’s Chakra Tuning ensemble.
