NOAH BAERMAN is a pianist, organist, composer, educator, author, and activist based in Middletown, CT. While he is best known for his work as a jazz artist and educator his search for the transcendent have led him in diverse directions in his musical style and his broader pursuits, such as the founding and direction of the non-profit Resonant Motion. His opening set at Soup and Sound will display his recent collaboration with singer-songwriter Rani Arbo, a partnership that has given voice to some of his most recent songs with words, many of them musings on the topic of mortality. Following this will be a set by Trio 149 as they prepare to enter the studio a few days later to cut their first album. A two-keyboard collaboration with pianist Jen Allen, the group focuses on uplifting and thought-provoking material, pulling together a variety of musical influences, from John Coltrane, Larry Young, and Thelonious Monk to Stevie Wonder, Sting, and Nina Simone.
