A free Saturday evening concert will be held at 7:30 pm at the Canyon Theater at the Boulder Public Library, featuring NoteSpeak from Brescia, Italy. Boulder native and long-time Italy resident Lisa Marie Simmons partners with pianist and arranger Marco Cremaschini and full band for an evening of jazz, from standards to inspired originals and their own creative form of spoken word-musical performance called NoteSpeak. A unique collaboration that intertwines poetical and musical forms to raise awareness of real-life triumphs and struggles around the world, Notespeak explores creative paths established by such artists as The Last Poets, Gil Scott-Heron, and Brian Jackson, but venture down contemporary avenues to address current topics of which many remain unaware. Musically and vocally, NoteSpeak constantly changes, shifting from style to style – acoustic jazz solos into hip-hop beats into harmonized gospel vocals into electronic jazz and fusion into free verse rhyming – and yet seems to consistently groove.
