Nora McCarthy and Jorge Sylvester (A Small Dream in Red)

Mid-Manhattan Library

Mid-Manhattan Library presents a performance by Nora McCarthy and Jorge Sylvester (A Small Dream in Red) in the first floor corner room on Friday, April 26 at 6 p.m.

Singer Nora McCarthy and saxophonist Jorge Sylvester constitute one of the most creative duos in today's jazz scene. Their group, A Small Dream in Red (named after painter Vassily Kandinsky's1925 masterpiece) made a deep impression with its eponymous 2005 Sundown Jazz debut.

Both McCarthy and Sylvester are remarkably talented musicians with backgrounds in traditional and avant-garde jazz and they use both structured sound and joyful noises in a seamless harmonization of composition and improvisation.
