This is the second of seven webisodes from the *live* webcast of JazzLab during the 2011 Burlington Discover Jazz Festival.
JazzLab is an audio exhibit in an art gallery, which aims to showcase the artistic and technical processes that occur during a studio recording session.
Three groups were invited to perform in front of a live audience: Snarky Puppy, Barika and a Burlington/New Orleans hybrid group --dubbed the BTV x NOLA Experiment.
Tank Studio created a pop-up recording studio during Jazz Fest on the second floor of the BCA Center, formerly known as the Firehouse Gallery.
The 10-day Burlington Discover Jazz Festival, now in its 29th year, presents a diverse array of internationally known artists, along with local and regional musicians, at ticketed and free events throughout Burlington, Vermont. The nonprofit Festival is produced by the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts in association with Burlington City Arts and is supported by a devoted sponsor base.
Cortex documented the event through video, photography and a *live* webcast of each band's studio performance. This segment is part of the director's cut from the live webcast.
This video features the BTV x NOLA Experiment, a hybrid supergroup featuring stellar Vermont and New Orleans musicians. Burlington-based drummer Gabe Jarrett, bassist Robinson Morse and flutist/vocalist Heloise Williams join forces with some of the best emerging artists in New Orleans --percussionist and effects genius Justin Peake and avant-garde composer and band leader Jonathan Freilich.
The group played four spontaneous sets, featuring a rotating cast of musicians, on June 8, 2011.
Stay tuned for the another segment from the BTV x NOLA Experiment, as well as more videos from the Snarky Puppy and Barika performances.
