Pianist and vibraphonist Karl Berger, longtime moving force behind the Woodstock Creative Music Studio, shapes and drills a new improvising orchestra in a series benefiting that institution. Posted: Thursday March 15 2012.
The stone workshop orhestra has since (2011) evolved into the kb improvisers orchestra, with over 80 performances to date. In april 2016 IT will re-emerge as the CMS improvisers orchestra, directed by karl berger.
Karl Berger asked the nearly two dozen musicians packed sweatily into the cramped confines of The Stone one humid Monday night last August. From across the room Berger’s wife, vocalist Ingrid Sertso, cheekily countered, Maybe we should all play naked. The clothes stayed on for the remainder of this particular performance, but in a sense any project in which Berger takes the helm involves playing naked. Arriving in Paris, he and Sertso almost immediately chanced upon Don Cherry, whom they recognized from the album cover. By the following day, Berger was playing in Cherry’s band alongside Gato Barbieri, Jenny Clark and Also Romano. Live at the Donaueschingen Music Festival (MPS, 1979). Karl Berger/Dave Holland/Ed Blackwell. Transit (Black Saint, 1987).
