Ken Field has been named President of the Boards of Directors of JazzBoston, a jazz advocacy organization, and Tutoring Plus of Cambridge, an educational non-profit providing free volunteer-based tutoring services to Cambridge youth.
"Stream" is Field's contribution to the Cambridge Arts Council's online "Stream Festival" (replacing their canceled "River Festival"), and is an improvised piece for solo alto saxophone with looping electronics. "Stream" is also featured on the current home page of the Multicultural Arts Center.
Revolutionary Snake Ensemble's annual Mardi Gras party at The Regattabar with special New Orleans guests Amadee Castenell & Henri Smith was a smash hit. The audience was near-capacity, the band was smoking, the standing ovation was appreciated, and the grooves were deep!! Thanks to all!
Field brought a unique program of live music and animated film to the ICA/Boston for a single special performance on Friday March 22nd, 2019 for a sold-out performance. The performing ensemble consisted of Field, Stan Strickland, Lihi Haruvi, & Neil Leonard on alto saxes, with Savannah Marshall on drums.
Field teamed with his wife, award-winning independent animator Karen Aqua, to create soundtracks for her animated films for several decades until her untimely passing in 2011. In 2017 Field was invited by the Animator Festival (Poland) to perform live for a program of Aqua's films and assembled an unusual instrumentation of four alto saxophones and a drummer. The resultant performance was celebrated as the highlight of the festival.
