      8:30pm Ralph Carney - saxophones, etc./Mike Elias - guitar/Bill Noertker - contrabass/Dave Mihaly - drums

      llen Ginsberg said: “Ralph Carney’s Circle of Fifths continuously evolves in horns’ circular breathing (like Australian Aborigines’ Didgerey Doo) matching voice-text power to make the most perfect poetry music recording I’ve done.”
      He has spent the better part of the last 2 decades criss-crossing the world, on stage and in studios with the likes of Tom Waits, Jonathan Richman, William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, B-52’s, Marc Ribot, Bill Laswell, David Thomas, Hal Wilner, Elvis Costello, Tipsy, Galaxie 500, Daevid Allen, Mushroom, Oranj Symphonette and The Black Keys, to name a few.

      Born in Brooklyn, New York, guitarist Terrence McManus grew up in New Jersey and Connecticut. He has performed with Bill Frisell, Tim Berne, Ellery Eskelin, Herb Robertson, Mark Helias, Gerry Hemingway, Anthony Cox, Kermit Driscoll, Lindsey Horner, Gene Bertoncini, Russ Lossing, Marty Ehrlich, Mat Maneri, and Michael Sarin. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, the New York Guitar Festival, Ellis Island, and the inaugural month at John Zorn's The Stone. In 2006, Terrence formed Flattened Planet, a record label dedicated to the promotion of new, creative, and improvised music.
      Terrence is currently a member of the Gerry Hemingway Quintet, the Kermit Driscoll Group, the Herb Robertson Ensemble, and the Hemingway/McManus Duo. His own project, The Terrence McManus Ensemble, is unique in that the ensemble is comprised of several small groups with shifting personnel. One variation, the chamber ensemble The Dream of the Ants, with Ellery Eskelin and Gerry Hemingway, recently premiered a new sixty minute, multi-sectional, through-composed work entitled, The Machine.
      Also an accomplished solo guitarist, Terrence performs his own compositions and arrangements, and has developed a unique style of improvisation, drawing on extended technique and prepared guitar. Terrence's solo improvisations were featured in the New York City debut of the Fermin Cabal play Disappeared (Tejas Verdes). The play's month long residency took place at the Richmond Shepard Theatre in September, 2006.
      In 2008 Terrence was featured in the book, State of the Axe: Guitar Masters in Photographs and Words, by legendary photographer Ralph Gibson. The book, published by Yale University Press, was produced in conjunction with The Museum of Fine Arts, in Houston, TX, where the book's images were on exhibition.
      Also actively involved in education, Terrence has taught at William Paterson University, the University of Nebraska, and The New School in New York City.
