As part of Olivier Mosset’s “Exposition de groupe,” the artist organized two nights of concerts featuring friends and colleagues from Tucson and New York City. 

Al Foul is a one-man band, a solo act with the power of a trio. Along with his distinctive voice Al plays guitar as well as a bass drum with his right foot and his own Stompbox invention with his left. With this unique set up Al creates a solid beat and rhythm to back up his story telling style of song writing reminiscent of early Rockabilly and Country, i.e. Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Elvis. Al's sound and songwriting while based in early rock 'n' roll transcends the genre with a sincere and modern approach. Al has dedicated his life to music, and it shows in his song writing and live performances.

It can be said, with no fear of exaggeration, that Al Perry embodies all that is good and true in American music. The inventor of cowpunk, Al is both an inspired songwriter as well as a creative interpreter; his back catalog of original music is as exhaustive as his knowledge of traditional country, western, and blues music. Al has released numerous albums, CDs, and .45s of original material, recorded and performed with every Tucson musician of note for the past three decades, and has toured both nationally and internationally. Always restless, Al continues to astonish audiences with his breadth and versatility, especially when he begins playing the oud, which he has recently learned.

Cornichons is a recently formed global country band. Vocals: Servane Mary, Keyboard: Aura Rosenberg, Bass: Jose Martos, Drums: Dan Walworth, Guitar: John Miller

The members of Airport Seven were all collaborators with artist/musician Steve Parrino. After his death the three got together to jam. Since that time they have developed their own style of music that uses free improvisation to express their individual identities, creating a wide musical palate beyond the sum of its parts. Drums: Steve DiBenedetto, Guitar: Kevin Jones, Bass: John Terhorst 

Olivier Mosset “Exposition de groupe” is made possible with support from Spencer Brownstone Gallery, Koenig & Clinton, Dedalus Foundation, Inc., Cowles Charitable Trust, and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
