The purpose of Alford-Assist is to allow participating Alfordians to communicate needs across the group, so that others can help. Using Alford-Assist, Alfordians will be able to ask for and hopefully get needed help, quickly while building interpersonal bonds within the community. The benefits should appeal to full-timers and second homeowners alike, and a long-term objective is to enable all of us to live independently, at home, for as long as possible. This model has been successful in Egremont, and should work here in Alford as well. For more information, visit the Alford-Assist web site, and add it to your favorites or bookmarks.

The Larry Chernicoff Sextet at The Clark Art Institute
Saturday October 8 at 8 pm
The Clark Art Institute Auditorium, Williamstown, MA
Tickets are $25 ($20 for Clark Art Institute members). Tickets will be available at the door, but if you want to reserve now, call me at 413 528 6021.
My quintet has been together, on and off, since 1984, with the same five guys. Four of us will reconvene this time, but one of the sax players, Tim Moran, can’t make it – he has to be in Peru (really!). So I’ve invited electric 5-string violinist Derrik Jordan to join us. And this time we’ll be a sextet, with Berkshire sax legend Charlie Tokarz (who’s played with us before) along for the ride.
We’ll be performing some new compositions and some old ones, including fanfares and waltzes, sometimes meditative and quiet, sometimes jazzy and funky, with influences ranging from New Orleans, India and South Africa to 1960’s doo-wop.
And please pass this note on to friends who might dig our music.
“This is an unusual and engaging band, with energy, lyricism, and humor… very memorable. Catch them next time they’re around.” – Albany Times-Union
“Rhythms collided, chords didn’t quite change when and where you expected…and that’s what makes the music of the Larry Chernicoff so compelling and intriguing. The world-class improvisers each had his moment in the spotlight. Hovering over all this was composer and visionary Chernicoff … who once every year or so … pops out as a musical wizard leading one of the hottest bands around.” – Berkshire Eagle
“With a group of truly world-class players, … it became difficult to tell where Chernicoff´s writing ended and the improv began. And the sound was, in a word, heavenly.” – Metroland
“Listeners certainly are provoked to think, and glow just a bit.” – Berkshire Eagle
