Cheryl K. will interview Kerhonkson resident Roswell Rudd. The trombonist will be appearing at Club Helsinki Hudson, 405 Columbia St. in Hudson, NY on Friday, October 7, 9 p.m. to celebrate trumpeter Steve Bernstein’s 50th birthday with the unit Sex Mob and special guest keyboardist John Medeski. Rudd is known primarily for his work in free and avant-garde jazz (performing with Carla Bley, Don Cherry, Archie Shepp), but has extended his musical range through and to World Music. Rudd graduated from Yale University and later taught music-ethnology at Bard College and the University of Maine. His latest release is "The Incredible Honk" on Sunnyside Records.
