Himself a far-from-invisible presence on the Capital Region music scene, Noyes is most active with the Arch Stanton Quartet, which not long ago toured Egypt and performed at the Cairo International Jazz Festival. Featuring original music inspired by Invisible Man, the program, says the guitarist, is “part book discussion and part music performance, this event is a unique opportunity to delve deeper into Ellison’s work and learn about the composing process.” Accompanying Noyes, who once taught English literature at SUNY Plattsburgh, will be trumpeter Terry Gordon, drummer James Ketterer, and bassist Tony Berman.
The program will take place February 25 at 7pm in the Albany History Room at the Albany Public Library. Admission is free. For more information, call (518) 427-4300 or visit http://www.albanypubliclibrary.org/.
