Jazz Club of Sarasota 
presents prestigious Satchmo Award
to Rachel and Mat Domber
of Clearwater-based Arbors Records
shem.gif
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 27, 2020
 
Sarasota, FL: The Jazz Club of Sarasota presented its prestigious Satchmo Award to Rachel Domber and her late husband Mat, founders and operators of Clearwater-based Arbors Records, on March 12 at a reception that was part of the pandemic-interrupted Sarasota Jazz Festival. The presentation had been planned as an important part of the Jazz Club’s 40th Anniversary Festival and was hastily rescheduled as musicians and audiences departed under an advisory from governmental officials.
 
Ed Linehan, president of the Jazz Club and managing director of the Sarasota Jazz Festival, said, “We are very pleased to honor the work of Rachel Domber and her late husband Matthew by presenting them with the Satchmo award, the Jazz Club’s highest recognition. This recognition commemorates the contributions of  jazz great Louis Armstrong, nicknamed ‘Satchel Mouth’ or ‘Satchmo. We also thank The Harold and Evelyn R. Davis Memorial Foundation, which sponsors the award in memory of Jazz Clubfounder Hal Davis. 
 
“The Jazz Club created the Satchmo award in 1987 to honor those who have made a unique and enduring contribution to the living history of jazz, our original art form. I can’t think of anyone who fits that definition better than the Dombers,” Linehan said. “Through their efforts, Arbors has produced hundreds of albums since 1989, representing many classic styles of Jazz. The Arbors catalog reads like a Who’s Who of American jazz of the last half century, including recordings by our own Dick Hyman–an NEA Jazz Master–and Ken Peplowski.” 
 
Mat Domber was a New York-based lawyer with real estate interests in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Florida. He was also a jazz fan, record collector and listener, beginning with his preteen visits to Nick’s in Greenwich Village. He and his wife Rachel founded Arbors Records as an act of generosity, creating a culture of support and kindness that continues to this day.
 
“We started in 1989 without thinking of establishing a record label, but only to try to give our friend Rick Fay something he could sell on the bandstand. It grew into a labor of love and we now have over 400 recordings in our catalog,” Rachel said. The impetus was their friendship with Rick Fay, an outstanding reedman, singer, and composer who had been in the music business for over 40 years, mostly as a performer at the Disney parks in California and Florida, but who had never recorded as a leader. 
 
Arbors changed that with their first release and Fay’s first album, Rick Fay’s Hot Five: Live at Lone Pine. Starting with Dixieland recordings by various Rick Fay groups, the highly regarded niche company now embraces traditional, contemporary, and classic jazz as well as the swing styles of the ’30s, ’40s, ’50s and beyond. The label, which describes itself as “Your Home of Contemporary Jazz and Swing,” features nationally and internationally acclaimed jazz performers as well as rising stars.
 
Beyond making records, Arbors was also the originator and producer of the acclaimed March of Jazz weekend jazz parties in Clearwater, Florida, starting with Bob Haggart’s 80th birthday in 1994 and continuing through 2012, when Mat died and Rachel needed some time to regroup.
 
Arbors is also a sponsor of the Sarasota Jazz Festival and the Suncoast Dixieland Jazz Classic in Clearwater Beach, Florida, as well as the Arbors Invitational Jazz Party, geared toward pianists, which began in 2002. In addition, Arbors president Rachel Domber was also president of the Statesmen of Jazz, an ensemble of legendary senior musicians who toured the world from 1998-2010 and recorded two Arbors CDs. In keeping with their generous nature, the Dombers never took reimbursements for their administrative, travel, or other costs. Instead, 100 percent of the proceeds went to the musicians and to nonprofit organizations that promote the continuation of jazz.
 
“I am very thrilled to have this award and I know Mat is so very happy too,” Rachel said, regarding the unique trophy designed by sculptor Frank Eliscu, who also designed the Heisman Memorial Football Trophy. “It was a surprise—and a tremendous feeling—to look at the list of other Satchmo recipients and realize that Arbors Records has recorded and supported many of them. They include of course Ken [Peplowski] and Dick [Hyman], whose new Lerner and Loewe album Counterpoint we’ve just released.” Among other Satchmo winners that Arbors has recorded as leaders (with Satchmo award dates in parentheses) are NEA Jazz Masters George Wein (1987) and Milt Hinton (1988); Bob Haggart (1999); Jerry Jerome (2002); Bucky Pizzarelli (2003) and John Pizzarelli (2003), Svend Asmussen (2012), and Wycliffe Gordon (2016). Those recorded as sidemen include Peter Appleyard (2007), Jeff Hamilton (2018), and the most recent winner, Houston Person (2019).
 
In keeping with its philosophy of supporting talent young and new, the latest Arbors recordings, released in 2018-2020, include two Lerner and Loewe projects: the previously mentioned Counterpoint by Satchmo winners Dick Hyman (2001) and Ken Peplowski (2014), and Adrian Cunningham and His Friends Play the Tunes of Lerner and Loewe. Other new releases are Professor Cunningham and His Old School Swing Disney;  James Suggs: You’re Going to Hear From Me; Ken Peplowski and Diego Figueiredo; Amizade; Dave McKenna in Madison;  Warren Vache: Songs Our Fathers Taught Us; and a new album, Everyone Wants to Rule the World, due out this month, pairing the hot young trio La Lucha with jazz stars Ken Peplowski, Diego Figueiredo, Chuck Redd, last year’s Satchmo winner Houston Person, and others. 
 
Arbors doesn’t restrict its generous support of jazz to recordings and festivals. As coronavirus-related government closings have put many musicians (and others) out of work, Rachel and Arbors Records have stepped up to the plate. On March 18 she wrote, “This weekend in New York City we are recording a large group of musicians so we can give them some income during this difficult time. The musicians committed to this venture are Ken Peplowski as leader, along with  Houston Person, Russell Malone, Nicki Parrott, Phil Stewart, Peter Washington, and Ehud Asherie.  I don’t know if it will come off because of a possible New York City shutdown, but we will see.” Unfortunately the health situation in NYC  canceled this plan, but Rachel is undaunted. In fact, under her sponsorship, guitarist Diego Figuereido is recording the last few original songs for his Arbors album Antartica in his native Brazil, where recording studios are still open. 

Looking back on Arbors’ three decades and its significant impact on the world of jazz, Rachel said,  “It has all been worth it.  And I’m very proud to receive the Satchmo Award. It gives me the energy and inspiration to keep going on.”

The Jazz Club of Sarasota, founded in 1980, is dedicated to preserving, promoting and presenting jazz, America’s original musical art form. The Club has provided over 50 jazz-related events each year for over 40 years. Chief among them is the highly respected Sarasota Jazz Festival, presented every March. In addition to producing numerous jazz events, over the years the Club has granted over $250,000 to aspiring young jazz musicians.

Artists may come and artists may go, but Detroit born legend James Montgomery has performed in the forefront of the blues for over four decades. In my younger days, I first saw him perform locally around the New England circuit with his own James Montgomery Band and the Shaboo Allstars. James always had fantastic musicians that knew how to keep a funky groove including the late great Matt Murphy and Charles Calmese. When I saw James fronting these bands, he had an energy onstage that I had never seen before. It was great musicians playing off of each other, never knowing what to expect next other than that it would be exciting and funky.

In 1973, James had a Capricorn Records release, First Time Out which I really dug. Later he caught everyone’s attention when he released a funky version of the Huey Piano Smith song, “Don’t You Just Know It” under the title “The Gooba Gooba Song”, produced by Allen Toussaint.

Not only is James a musical star in his own right, but he also had an extensive history with some of my other musical heroes and influences. This includes Johnny Winter and James Cotton both of whom he had very close relations with. James is also currently working on James Cotton’s biography. James Montgomery also has a long friendship and musical relationship with my bandmate and drummer Bobby T Torello as a result of both touring with Johnny Winter.

I felt there was a musical compatibility with our tastes in music and mutually respected artists, past and present. In 2016, I asked Bobby to contact James to see if James would front our band for an upcoming performance scheduled in Hartford, Connecticut at Black Eyed Sally’s Southern Kitchen and Bar. Although we were not needing additional vocals or an additional harmonica player, what a thrill it would be to have a blues legend and frontman that all of the band honored and had a strong mutual respect for. I was surprised and overjoyed that James agreed, and it was a great show and wonderful experience.

Through that experience I communicated occasionally with James through social media, and after deciding to create our sixth ZOHO CD release, I asked James if he would participate. He agreed again, and we scheduled some sessions at Long Hill Recording in Shelton, CT. I had some material pre-planned and sent some tracks and ideas in advance for James to preview. One song in particular that came to my mind was “Detroit Blues”.

James is very proud of growing up in Detroit learning first hand from local masters and this song also reminded me of another favorite by Willie Brown titled Mississippi Blues. Tampa Red released Detroit Blues in 1945 and it went to #5 on the Billboard R&B charts. Tampa Red had a distinctive single-string slide style and his version was heavily dominated by piano. I decided to record it with a finger picking style similar to Willie Brown with James on vocal and harp.

James’ vocal and harmonica performance is exceptional on this track and an accurate expression of his deep love of the city, and for the blues in his soul. James made it very clear that when we introduced him onto the stage, his Detroit origin along with his name was equally important.

Montgomery has toured with Aerosmith, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, the Allman Brothers Band , Steve Miller and others. He has also performed with B.B. King, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Junior Wells, James Cotton, Charlie Daniels, Greg Allman, Laverne Baker, Patti LaBelle, and Peter Wolf among others. With all of these amazing credits to his name, James remains a very humble gentleman, and it was a joy and great experience to create this release with him.

The Jay Willie Blues Band has had the pleasure and successful experience of producing five previous releases on the ZOHO Roots label, between 2013 and 2017. As a result, I have earned enough creative and technical credits to qualify as a voting member and District Advocator for the Grammy Awards New York Chapter. In 2015, Johnny Winter was nominated again for his sixth Grammy Award for his Step Back album released only weeks after his passing. Johnny did win the Award for “Best Blues Album” and although it was posthumously, it was a true honor to participate in the voting process and see this hero recognized with this highest musical honor.
 
The title track “Cadillac Walk” was written by Moon Martin, a pop artist and composer who also wrote Robert Palmer’s hit song “Bad Case of Loving You”. However, Mink Deville’s cover is what really turned me on to this song. Mink really emphasized the slide guitar and gave it a different groove and made it badass. We made it a little sexier and added more slide with James on harmonica.

It is always a pleasure to partner with multi -instrumentalist Paul Opalach and world class drummer Bobby T Torello. Paul is not only responsible for all the studio production and videography but performs all the bass, Rickenbacker lap steel, and keyboards. Thank you for your patronage and we hope you enjoy our music.

Hello everyone.
 

Because of COVID19, we know things are not going as we thought they would. I’m shocked but like everyone I’m making the necessary adjustments.

I hope 2020 will get better real soon for all.

 

Anyway, I wanted to keep in touch. Here’s what’s going on with me:

 

March came in with my new record, You Can’t Lose With The Blues, at #1 on the Jazzweek Jazz Chart for two weeks running! I am at a loss for words, except to say, thank you all for your love and support. You made it happen.

 

Here is a video I did for you all yesterday from home: Something Special For You.
 

Also what I did yesterday for the first time ever, was teach a piano lesson online via Skype. 
 

So if anyone is interested in taking a lesson, even from you home, we can do it. Just send me a message.

 

So, to start off the year with my main man, tenor great Houston Person is such a joy.

The HP Quartet bandmates bassist Matthew Parrish and drummer Vince Ector always add to the excitement as we play together for the annual Jazz Cruise.  
 

We were very fortunate to all came back happy and healthy.

 

As we set sail from Miami for Costa Maya, I enjoyed watching Houston get ready for his opening show with the Jazz Cruise All Stars.

This year the HP Quartet’s first concert was on Super Bowl Sunday, where people were distracted by the game as usual. Congratulations to whoever won. 

 

The next day in Costa Maya, we got to tour the Mayan ruins. Wow! I knew the Mayans had an advanced civilization, with knowledge of medicine and engineering, but I didn’t know they’d documented much of that knowledge in books called The Maya Codices. Unfortunately for all humanity, almost all of those written documents, preserving hundreds of years of accumulated knowledge, were burned by the Spanish conquerors. Only 3 or 4 of the thousands of documents survived, including teaching on how to medicate against some infectious diseases.

 

Back home in Brooklyn it was time to get together to rehearse (here’s another video) for my Mezzrow gig with the great bassist Lonnie Plaxico and the talented young drummer Jerome Jennings.

 

For further reading please go to my blog:

www.lafayetteharrisjr.com/f/lafayette’s-newsletter

 

I’m hoping to see you all again sooner rather than later. 

But we have to keep safe and stay away from groups, so in the meantime, keep listening, learning and growing.

 

Take Care,

Lafayette Harris Jr.

Award-winning anthropologist and musician, Marius Bilgobenson, is releasing his beautiful, brand new single “Tears on the Ground” on Friday, March 13, 2020.

Originally hailing from the Congo River Basin, Bilgobenson works tirelessly to promote cross-cultural dialogue. Inspired by the likes of Louis Armstong, he has chosen jazz fusion as his means of communicating his powerful messages of civil rights advocacy to the world. His music contains elements of jazz, R&B, blues and indigenous African traditions which further drive home his message of inclusivity and awareness for disenfranchised communities.

When asked about his upcoming release Bilgobenson shares:

“Tears On The Ground celebrates the social advocates who have shaped, cared and embraced our pleasant lives. It aims to remind people to take a moment to look around and appreciate the benefactors, both seen and unseen, that have made us the great kings we are today.”

Artist Bio 
“I am a little fly trying to provoke elephants,” shares singer-songwriter Marius Billgobenson. “Music is my tool to passionately affect change worldwide”
 
Marius is an award-winning anthropologist, a fiery advocate, and something of an ethnomusicologist and a curator of cultures. With his words, his music, and his life, he’s telling the world stories they need hear about marginalized people, environmental issues, and human rights. 
 
Marius’s invigorating blend of jazz instrumentation with indigenous African music seeks to bring awareness to disenfranchised communities. His passion and purpose are sharing the culture and concerns of his native land of the Congo River Basin—particularly, the plight of the Forest People, sometimes referred to as the “Pygmies” who reside inthe Congo rainforest—but his message reverberates universally.

Carla Rigolin Hassett

(AKA Carla Hassett) is a Los Angeles based session singer, guitarist, songwriter, recording artist, producer, bandleader, and music educator. A native of São Paulo Brazil and schooled in the recording studios of Chicago, Carla has sung with Billy Idol, Sergio Mendes, Flora Purim and Airto Moreira, Mike Patton, the late soul legend Solmon Burke, REO Speedwagon, Christopher Cross, Cristan Castro, and actor/musician Gary Sinise. Carla sang in the 2012 Latin Grammy Person of the Year Show honoring treasured Brazilian composer Caetano Veloso. During that show, she backed up Veloso, Natalie Cole, Nelly Furtado, Seu Jorge, Lila Downs among other Latin music superstars. Carla has recorded with Brazilian recording artist Paula Fernandes, Gino Vannelli, Spanish rock artist Enrique Bunbury, Michael Bublé, Mike Patton, and appeared on 7th Heaven, The Tonight Show, Dante Night Show, and The Grammy Awards. Carla was the featured soloist in the 2017 Sonorama project for Pacific Standard Time LA/LA, The 2018 LA Tribute to Luiz Melodia show, and the 2018 Film Composer Collective concert at the Theatricum Botanicum for film and TV composer Matthew Ferraro, and the 2019 rock opera Feast of Friends.

 

Carla sang on several feature films, including the Oscar nominated (for best original song) RIO for composers Sergio Mendes, Carlinhos Brown, and John Powell, and RIO 2 with Janelle Monae and her band. In Brazil, the song“Teu Olhar,”which Carla produced and co-wrote, became the theme song for the popular telenovela Amor e Ódio.  Back in the states, Carla sang and contracted vocal sessions for numerous Disney recordings in Portuguese and Spanish, and on countless commercial jingles. More recently, Carla sang on the pilot for the Amazon original Mozart In The Jungle, and on the 2018 Netflix film, Like Father.

 

Inspired by her work with Caetano Veloso, Carla explored tropicália and jazz for her album, +Blue (whose title, “More Blue” was inspired by Veloso’s song “A Little More Blue”). On +Blue, Carla explored the meaning of “home” and the complexities of growing up between two countries and cultures: her birthplace, Brazil, and her adopted country, the U.S. NPR featured +Blue and interviewed Carla on Weekend Edition with Linda Wertheimer.  In 2018, Carla produced and hosted The Mic podcast, featuring informal discussions with studio and touring singers. In 2019, Carla signed with Burlacticus Recording Company, and released a single, ADRIANA, a little-known tune penned in 1961 by Luiz Freire, and the great bossa nova guitarist and composer Roberto Menescal. Chosen by BURL Audio owner, founder, and bossa nova enthusiast, Rich Williams especially for Carla and her band for its exquisite groove in 5/4 meter, and intimate vocal style. Adriana is the vinyl B side to Ozomatli’s latest release.

Carla graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Music Production from Berklee College of Music and is currently a professor of commercial voice at California State University LA.

 

Carla continues to perform live, write and produce music, record, both in-house and remotely from her studio in Los Angeles.

Solitaire Miles The Born To Be Blue Sessions

Solitaire Miles The Born To Be Blue Sessions

“Solitaire Miles has a voice that makes you think she’s opened a hole in the fabric of  time and stepped right out of 1939.”

Chicago vocalist Solitaire Miles has been singing for most of her life, but I think she had been singing in her past lives as well, because her evocative style shines through, giving the listener an opportunity to glimpse into a portal of a bygone era.   Starting her career in Chicago in 1993 as a Jazz vocalist, she worked  with some of the most preeminent jazz icons alive, who were responsible for  creating  the Jazz genre in it’s heyday – performing and recording with Swing violinist Johnny Frigo, with sax Maestro Von Freeman and the Lion of Piano Jazz Willie Pickens.  She also performed in New York City with Doc Cheatham, who was the lead trumpeter for Cab Calloway’s Big Band.  Miles studied and worked with the fathers of American Jazz and her phrasing and song choices prove it.
 

Miles recorded 2 chart-busting Jazz albums in Chicago  during various sessions starting in 2009 – 2011 with the best Jazzers in town.  The biggest hit from the sessions is her arrangement of the idiosyncratic Hoagy Carmichael tune “Baltimore Oriole” which was her first song on the US Jazz Charts.   Her album features a lot of piano with Willie Pickens, fiddle with Johnny Frigo, accordion and piano with Joe Vito, and lots of  distinguished guitarists like Paulinho Garcia, Neal Alger and Andy Brown.  Art Davis heats it up on trumpet and Jim Gailloreto cools it down on sax and flute.   Her sidemen are no slouches either, with Robert Shy and Phil Gratteau on drums and Marlene Rosenberg, Larry Kohut and Joe Policastro on bass.  Miles had already released the albums and a few of the tunes placed on the Jazz charts,   but she’s recently had the entire collection re-mastered and is releasing them in one big digital set called the “Born to Be Blue Sessions” because that was the title of her first album from the collection, and was her best known and most charted album before she released her Western Swing set “Susie Blue & the Lonesome Fellas” in 2015.

 

Here are some of the critical reviews of “Born to Be Blue” when it was first released –
 

“This delightful set not only proves that there is still plenty of life to be found in  Swing tunes, but it features Solitaire Miles at her very best, taking her place as one of the top swing  singers around today.” – Scott Yanow, Jazz writer and critic
 

“Miles knows that the best way to authenticate songs is to inhabit them entirely.  By investing them with her own personality, as did her predecessors of the 1940s and 50s, she can make them sound nearly as fresh as they did when first performed.   By willing herself into the world-view of their original creators, she avoids any hint of camp.   Like a guided missile from the past, Solitaire Miles  homes in on modern sensibilities in her approach.  In interviews she has stated her desire to re-create the historical context – and especially the emotional context – in which these songs first appeared, yet also bring something  personal to her interpretations.  Her notes have a bit of the throaty warble that made June Christy, Chris Connor, and their cool-school successors such appealing poster girls for the 50s.  Miles sings the melodies and swings the rhythms with just enough lilt, letting her smoky voice carry the day. ” – Neil Tesser, Jazz writer and critic
 

“Listening to singer Solitaire Miles is like stepping into a time machine and going back to a bygone era of great female jazz singers. With a clear, clean voice and keen sense of phrasing, Miles belongs to another period in time before screeching and electronic pitch correction came into popularity.  A first rate presentation of classic tunes and  of course the star of it all is Miles herself, with a honey-smooth voice and confident annunciation – she truly knows these songs inside and out. Nicely done!”  – Brad Walseth, Jazz writer and critic
 

Miles has been busy with her Susie Blue persona as of late, preparing for a new album in June 2020 with her Lonesome Fellas, but in the “Born to Be Blue Sessions” she takes a moment to remember and share her Jazz roots and the wonderful recordings and musicians that helped shape her into the adroit and multifaceted vocalist that she is.  – JM Reid, Chicago Music Guide
 

You can find THE BORN TO BE BLUE SESSIONS at Bandcamp, itunes, CD Baby, Amazon and Spotify

“SWEET VALENTINE” NEW SINGLE FROM RAY CHARLES RAELETTE CYNTHIA SCOTT

“SWEET VALENTINE” NEW SINGLE FROM RAY CHARLES RAELETTE CYNTHIA SCOTT


jazzLogo.jpg

 “SWEET VALENTINE” 
NEW SINGLE FROM  
RAY CHARLES RAELETTE
CYNTHIA SCOTT 

shem.gif
Ms. Cynthia Scott, the award-winning jazz, blues, R&B and gospel vocalist, whose voice lit up the stage with the iconic hitmaker Ray Charles, has a new single out especially for Valentines’ Day called “SWEET VALENTINE”.
 
The former “Raelette”, born in Arkansas, is a resident of New York City. This single is a dedication to all those inclined to pursue the romantic and tender side of their love life. It is playful, fun and joyous, bound to please that special someone. Cynthia says:  “you will learn to stutter….” You will also understand this reference when you listen to the catchy tune. 

For a MP3 Hi RES file for radio play contact: muzaklady@gmail.com or info@cynthiascott.com
 
The song was written by longtime friend and musical collaborator, Xavier Chavez.  Gone, but not forgotten, Chavez, gave Cynthia the song over 20 years ago. With a lyric by Ann Lisa Magid, Chavez would, no doubt, be thrilled with this version. 
 
It took a long time for this song to find its way into the world. Sometimes, the best is saved for last.  Cynthia says, “I guess X is saying to me “it’s about time you recorded it…..” and now is the time. 
 
Ms. Scott delivers a lighthearted vocal that is buoyant and artistically presented. Known for her romantic and emotional performances, “SWEET VALENTINE” swings deeply and soulfully, always with that sparkle in her eyes. A soul-jazz singer of the highest order, Scott literally pours her heart and soul into every note.
 
The pianist on the date is Jeb Patton. He brings together the traditional piano stylings with a modern jazz approach. Bassist Paul Beaudry, a mainstay on the Cynthia Scott bandstand, provides warm support with a touch of edge that makes this recording effervescent. “Dwayne “Cook” Broadnaux, a key element to the Cynthia Scott sound, swings the band with artful subtlety.   
 
Ms. Scott in live performance engages the audience with stories and anecdotes of each tune she sings. An actress and playwright of distinction, her focus is communication. 
 
With “SWEET VALENTINE”, we catch a glimpse of Scott’s impeccable timing, swinging phrasing and the deep conviction of surrendering to the lyric. She sings about the interplay between lovers that is both enticing and inviting, asking for that most elusive of emotional caresses, the declaration of love. 
 
Every Valentine’s Day the restaurants are packed, reservations to the hottest venues are unavailable  and on every playlist you’ll find the love song regulars. Here is a new song to add to your personal playlist, or perhaps send to your valentine with a dozen roses, no reservation required to impress that special someone. 
 
Cynthia Scott brings an element of both the tried and true and new inspiration to the vocal repertoire of today. A songwriter herself, her recordings testify to her strong belief in the good of the world.  As a songwriter, she focuses on love, relationships and bringing healing to a world struggling to survive. 
 
Her support of causes like Alzheimer’s and her strong desire to make the world a better place through music, is showcased on her most recent CD: “Dream For One Bright World”. This project was recently remastered and re-released due to popular demand. So many people have said “It needs to be heard now……”  
 
Ms. Scott is always planted firmly in the roots of her gospel beginnings, she is the 10th of 12 children born to a preacher. This alone gives her the “street cred” to talk about love and spirit which she does, so eloquently and joyfully, in her new release, “SWEET VALENTINE”. It will also be featured on her upcoming CD Recording “Hear It For Yourself” coming soon.

Happy Valentine’s Day – Enjoy some “Love and Kisses” from Chicago’s Susie Blue & the Lonesome Fellas

“Queen of the holiday single, Susie Blue does not disappoint this V-Day. SWINGING you with a delightful romantic rockabilly romp. The tune “Love and Kisses” was originally written and performed by the 1950’s teenage rockabilly phenom Janis Martin who released this sassy ditty in late 1956. Susie is joined in a Blondie-inspired, all-girl vocal harmony by jazz vocalist Jen Zias.

They lull you with an angelic Deborah Harry-esqe harmony that will take you back to Blondie’s early days when she created smooth sounds for retro tunes like “In the Flesh“. Susie and Jen sing in duet, accompanied by Lonesome Fella saxophonist Eric Schneider who is a weekend regular at Chicago’s Green Mill, and guitarist Neal Alger, the band’s musical director. Chris Bernhardt rocks the bass with just the right bit of JazzBilly and Swing drummer Phil Gratteau keeps the tempo going, as if you were being chivied through a field of daisies by Cupid himself.

It’s a fun frolic, leaving you grinning and a little breathless, just like a tantalizing kiss from Cupid, and is a perfect compliment to your Valentine’s Day carousal.”
– Jean M. Reid – Chicago Music Guide

*”Vocalist Solitaire Miles holds fast to a sound reminiscent of roadside bars where just three people are left near closing at the pinball machine.”
– Wall Street Journal*
 

You can find it on Spotify, itunes, Amazon and Bandcamp

A Tribute to Geri Allen

Under the direction of Terri Lyne Carrington featuring Tia Fuller

“Music can be a lot of different things. It can be about the celebration of the intellect. It can be about the celebration of the body and movement. It can be about a quest. It can give you inner strength, create a fertile place for peace to exist. I think that what I´ve come to want from music is to have all those things in it.” – Geri Allen

I was stunned to learn yesterday that Tenormore won Best New Release in the 2019 Jazz Times Readers’ Poll. First place! Wow. 

I want to thank the great musicians who played their hearts out on this album — Helen Sung, Martin Wind, Dennis Mackrel, and special guest Sharon Robinson — and also Rachel Domber of Arbors records, who was so supportive of this project. And all you beautiful folks who are out there listening!

And the album is available here:
 

Also, if you are in NYC next weekend, please stop by Jazz At Kitano on Fri. or Sat. to hear me in a duo setting with the great Frank Kimbrough; Info & Tickets HERE

With gratitude, Scott

Tenormore has also appeared in the following “Best Of” lists:
— DownBeat’s “Best of 2019”
— W. Royal Stokes, “10 Best New Releases of 2019”
— Michael Steinman’s 14 notable 2019 releases, Jazz Lives 
— Ralph Miriello’s top ten “Best of Jazz 2019,” Notes On Jazz
— Tom Cunniffe, 12 “Best instrumental CDs”
— Dan Bilawsky’s Top Ten list, JazzTimes

What The Press Has To Say About Tenormore:

The range of expression that Robinson is capable of eliciting from a single horn… is astounding. Scott Robinson may take instrumental variegation to a level unsurpassed in this music, but that shouldn’t diminish his position as a tenor saxophonist of note. In that most crowded of fields, he still stands out. (4 ½ stars) -Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz

Introducing Scott in a festival a few years ago, I mentioned that his tenor playing had reached a level where he was overshadowing better-known players who were winning polls. Since then, his name comes up more and more frequently in the tenor sax division… -Doug Ramsey of Rifftides (liner notes)

Impassioned playing from Robinson, always in control and yet stretching his sound and tone towards the edge of what’s possible. -Mark McKergow, LondonJazz News

Robinson kicks it all off in daring fashion… he swings effortlessly and delivers a singing quality… while also incorporating some unconventional twists… A winning set (4 stars) -Bill Milkowski, DownBeat

A horn that old has a patina. So does Robinson’s sound… Robinson may tailor each note in a line, varying its thickness, tone, vibrato or volume. He knows the tenor’s emotional range too, wounded cry to soothing consolation, even in a single phrase. A student of its overtones, he may slide into a split-tone passage reminiscent of Tibetan throat singing. Or he’ll leap into the altissimo register… to play a single grace note, or whole high-wire passages (4 ½ stars) -Kevin Whitehead, The Audio Beat

Susie Blue & the Lonesome Fellas “Peter Gunn Theme”

Susie Blue & the Lonesome Fellas “Peter Gunn Theme”


jazzLogo.jpg

January 18, 2020

To: Listings/Critics/Features
From: Jazz Promo Services
www.jazzpromoservices.com


shem.gif

DIG IT! The Peter Gunn theme has lyrics, which you don’t hear very often, and it is performed magnificently by Susie Blue & the Lonesome Fellas. Get ready for an infusion of coolness.
 

Chicago vocalist Solitaire Miles aka Susie Blue is great at finding songs.  She writes them occasionally but mostly she finds long forgotten classics and re-arranges them with guitarist Neal Alger, and then the duo unleash them on the Lonesome Fellas who are a gang of seasoned Chicago jazz, blues and roots musicians.  What results are rare gems like this version of “The Peter Gunn Theme”.    Lyrics were added to this notorious Henry Mancini instrumental by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans and first recorded in 1965 by Sarah Vaughan on her album Sarah Vaughan Sings the Mancini Songbook.  Mancini had the lyrics written specifically for Sassy and so far nobody else has recorded the tune with the lyrics until Miles put her chops to it.
 

“I wanted to try something different and fun.  We  went into the studio one day and Neal and I asked the guys to play it.  Everyone knows this song like the back of their hand and the band was like  REALLY?  I asked trombonist Jack Gallagher to join us for a bigger brass sound with saxophonist Eric Schneider and we were rocking out.”
 

They aren’t playing their usual Western Swing or Roots music here, this is a pure Chicago Blues and Jazz sound, peppered with spicy horns and a slammin’ rhythm section which features bassist Chris Bernhardt and drummer Phil Grattau.  It’s unlike any version you have probably ever heard and it’s a total infusion of coolness! – JM Reid

JAZZ PROMO SERVICES 

BEGINS ITS 20TH YEAR OF SERVING THE JAZZ COMMUNITY

 

Jim Eigo’s Jazz Promo Services continues its innovations in publicizing a countless number of important jazz artists, venues,
concerts, labels and events

 
Ever since it was formed in 2001, Jazz Promo Services has been an important force in publicizing the music, events and news of the jazz world. Among the pioneers and innovators in utilizing E-mails for publicity (he can contact virtually anyone in the jazz and music industry), Jim Eigo works with hundreds of clients each year as a publicist, producer and enthusiastic spokesman, creating short, medium and long-range career development strategies. He is unparalleled in informing the jazz world about recording releases, concerts, clubs and all types of relevant information.
 
Jim Eigo’s many clients through the years (a full listing would take pages) have included such notables as Dr. Billy Taylor, Michel Petrucciani, Ray Barretto, Dave Stryker, James Moody, Boots Randolph, Roy Haynes, Archie Shepp, Eddie Daniels, , Jason Kao Hwang, Roger Kellaway, Denny Zeitlin, Jane Ira Bloom, Hristo Vitchev, Lew Tabackin, Duduka, Oliver Lake, Ernie Watts, Highlights In Jazz and the Vision Festival to name a few.
 
In addition to these and other veteran greats, Jazz Promo Services also works with many young artists at the beginning of their careers and with any performer (in any style) who has something to say in their music.
 
Even before 2001, Jim Eigo already had a lifetime of experience. Always enthusiastic about hearing and seeing music, Jim Eigo got his start in the music business as a teenager, working for a jukebox distributor in Brooklyn where he was paid in used records. He worked at Cox Records in Brooklyn and Strand Book Store before landing an important job with Happy Tunes Records in the early 1970s. “It had an eclectic crew of people with every conceivable department having an expert working for them. My mentor was Fred Norsworthy who was responsible for the jazz section. He taught me everything that I needed to know and then, when he left, I was considered the jazz expert and ran the jazz department. Rahsaan Roland Kirk was one of our regular customers at Happy Tunes. Ornette Coleman and Cecil Taylor would drop by and hang out, along with whoever was appearing at the Village Vanguard. It was the heyday of the Jazz Loft era. I was in my twenties and going out every night, seeing everyone from Alberta Hunter and Mary Lou Williams at the Cookery to whichever great was performing at Sam Rivers’ loft Studio Rivbea. When Alan Douglas and Michael Cuscuna recorded the Wildflowers sessions, I was there. Years later, in the late 1990s, I had the opportunity to work with Michael Dorf and help him with the reissues of those albums.”
 
Jim set up a mail order company for Happy Tunes and, when the record store was nearing its end, they gave him the mailing list. “That is how Daybreak Express was started. I worked with that company on and off for quite a few years, importing Miles Davis records from Japan and handling many small labels. Simultaneously I became friends with the people from the New Music Distribution Service, went to all of the JCOA workshops, and worked with Michael Mantler and Carla Bley, becoming the sales manager for JCOA.” Other gigs included being hired to set up the Soho Music Gallery, managing the jazz department at J&R Music World, and working for Horace Silver’s Silveto label while still overseeing Daybreak Express.
 
In the 1990s Jim became the label manager of the Dreyfus label, overseeing their releases. “Jazz Promo came out of that. When Dreyfus had a new release coming out and there was a budget, I would use a publicist. But when they did not have a budget behind a release, it was up to me to do all of the publicity. I gained very valuable experience doing press and radio while building up a database of contacts. When I left Dreyfus, in January 2001 I formed Jazz Promo Services.”
 
With his experience in retail, record production, marketing, distribution and publicity, Jim Eigo was ready. He became an early adopter of E-mails and was soon known as “The King Of Jazz E-Mail.” “E-mail marketing is what put us on the map. I first sent out notices for artists who were doing one-off gigs, primarily in NY. Then I started really building up my lists so I could distribute other’s press releases to everyone who would be interested.” His New York Hot List has 3,500 contacts by itself, has separate lists for each area of the United States, and internationally has over 10,000 contacts. Jim Eigo can hit target markets for specific live events while casting a very wide net for record releases.
 
In addition to Jazz Promo Services, Jim worked as the publicist for the Iridium, Les Paul and their other featured artists for a decade, he did the marketing for many years for the Cornelia Street Café, and is the long-time publicist for Jack Kleisinger’s Highlights In Jazz. A year ago he opened Original Vinyl Records, a record store in the Hudson Valley. While one wonders how he finds the time and energy, Jim Eigo simply says, “I love being around records, talking about records, and meeting people who love records.” The store’s friendly atmosphere and wide variety of recordings reflects its owner’s personality and flawless musical taste. (more information can be found at www.originalvinylrecords.com)
 
After 20 years, Jazz Promo Services remains the leader in its field. How have things changed during the past two decades? “The technology has of course changed, particularly the way that one communicates with editors, writers, jazz fans and musicians. We always have to stay up to date. What has not changed is that one still has to do basic PR 101, particularly writing a really good press release, advancing your dates so you are way out in front, doing regular reminders, and building relationships with all of the important people in the business.”
 
In summing up his life, Jim Eigo says, “I am very fortunate, am still pretty healthy, and have managed to put together a living out of the jazz business, finding my niche and purpose. The music keeps me young. I’m particularly inspired by Bob Koester who is in his eighties, ran the Delmark label for so many years, and still owns the Jazz Record Mart. Like him, I’m doing what I love.”

Carla Hassett Wraps Up Trio of Singles with a Bossa Nova Sung in English

Carla Hassett Wraps Up Trio of Singles with a Bossa Nova Sung in English


“Carla Hassett brings out fresh tunes that continue the path started by the likes of Jobim and Gil.”
~ Jazz Weekly

shem.gif

With the third and final release of singer-songwriter Carla Hassett’s trio of bossa nova tracks, comes the poetic and elegant “Three Kings.” The unapologetic bossa groove, freshly interpreted in 7/8 meter, is the only track of the three that’s sung in English. Though a secular song, the poetry tips a hat to the mysticism of love and its devout complexities. Hassett says that “while daydreaming one day, this line from Romeo and Juliet popped into my head: ‘Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name; or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love and I’ll no longer be a Capulet.’ When I thought about my Romeo, well, two actually came to mind from my past, along with the current Romeo at that time. Turns out, my Romeo was actually three kings!” Intending to create a highly poetic lyric, Hassett gave each “king” his own verse, whose rhyme scheme coincides with their names. The chorus is borrowed from Shakespere, and verse four explains the song in the soliloquy style of the Bard, then wraps up the story with an unexpectedly charming end.

BURL Audio’s invitation for Carla to record the 1961 bossa nova tune, “Adriana” (by Roberto Menescal) at the iconic EastWest Studios in Los Angeles, resulted in two additional recordings, Hassett’s own “Sempre Odara,” and “Three Kings.” Carla brought in bassist Andre de Santanna, and drummer Léo Costa from Sergio Mendes’s band, and Dan Reckard, from Bossa Zuzu, on piano to record in the room Frank Sinatra once sang in. Carla handled the vocals and guitar, and completed the production and mixing of “Sempre Odara” and “Three Kings” in her LA studio. The Burlacticus Recording Company (Burl Audio’s label) released “Adriana” on vinyl in 2019, and is expected to release a live concert film in early 2020 that features Carla’s performance at the Rio Theatre for the Performing Arts in Santa Cruz, California. 

Bio
There’s no mystery to the source of Hassett’s musical identity. The São Paulo-born singer-songwriter grew up in a Brazilian community in Chicago, studying piano and guitar from an early age, and writing and recording her own tunes on her father’s reel-to-reel before she hit her teens. Besides absorbing the Brazilian music her parents and extended family enjoyed listening to at home, Hassett soaked up rock, blues, funk and all of the other sounds popular in the Windy City. It wasn’t long before she turned pro, playing and singing with Chicago bands and lending her voice to jingles for national advertising campaigns.

Hassett moved to Los Angeles and built a career singing backup on tour and in the recording studio with the likes of Billy Idol, Sergio Mendes, Gino Vannelli, actor/musician Gary Sinise, Grammy award-winning soul legend Solomon Burke, Flora Purim and Airto Moreira, Mike Patton, Natalie Cole, and a bevy of Latin music superstars, like Caetano Veloso. Hassett also lent her voice to the movie soundtracks of RioRio 2, Netflix’s Like Father, and Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle.

On her previous album, +Blue, Carla explored the meaning of “home” and the complexities of growing up between two countries and cultures, stylistically expressed through tropicalia and samba. With the trio of singles, “Adriana,” “Sempre Odara,” and “Three Kings,” Carla embraces the understated power and beauty of her home’s most celebrated music–bossa nova.

Carla graduated Summa Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music, and is on the commercial music faculty at California State University, Los Angeles. She writes, records, and produces music from her studio in Los Angeles, and cites among her influences, Caetano Veloso, Elis Regina, Jorge Ben Jor, and her “patron saint” Carmen Miranda, as well as Aretha Franklin, Freddy Mercury, and Amy Winehouse. 

Release date: 1/8/2020

New York vocalist Kendra Shank pays tribute to her friend and mentor Abbey Lincoln (1930 – 2010) in a program of songs composed by the legendary singer, songwriter, actress, poet, civil rights activist, and NEA Jazz Master whose powerful messages of love, struggle, hope, and freedom are timeless and timely. Shank’s CD A Spirit Free: Abbey Lincoln Songbook (2007, the first Lincoln songbook ever recorded) received a New York Times Critics’ Choice, 4 stars in DownBeat, and numerous “Best of the Year” awards, among other accolades. “Her tribute is both reverent and creative, illuminating new possibilities for these songs and shedding new light on their composer” (Larry Blumenfeld, Entertainment Weekly). Shank played guitar on Lincoln’s Over the Years CD and live with her at the Blue Note. “Abbey’s songs celebrate the human spirit and address social issues that are relevant to our times,” says Kendra, “I’m honored to celebrate her legacy and 90th birthyear at Winter Jazzfest.”

March 20 & 21 @ Jazz at Kitano: 66 Park Ave, New York City
Last Fridays Residency @ 55 Bar: 55 Christopher St, NYC


“A wide open, mind-bending celebration of the human spirit.” -Tom Henry, The Blade

Kendra Shank’s seven CDs have won numerous “Best of the Year” citations, DownBeat poll recognition, and acclaim for her “delectable voice” (TIME magazine) and “breathtakingly original concept” (Boston Globe). Her career began as a folk singer-guitarist busking in Paris. When her passion turned to jazz, she studied with vocalist Jay Clayton in Seattle and was also mentored by Shirley Horn who co-produced her debut album and showcased her at the Village Vanguard in 1992. Since then Shank has headlined at New York’s Blue Note, Birdland, Jazz Standard, Iridium, and holds an 18-year residency at the 55 Bar. She’s appeared on NPR’s JazzSet and Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz and has toured in Europe, Japan, South Africa, Australia, Canada and the U.S. including jazz festivals in Portland, Saratoga, Seattle, Calgary, Edmonton, Vienne, Marciac, Wangaratta, and more. In addition to her 21-year collaboration with Frank Kimbrough and Dean Johnson, Shank has performed and/or recorded with Fred Hersch, Larry Willis, Geoffrey Keezer, Bob Dorough, Jay Clayton, Joe Locke, Gary Bartz, Steve Wilson, Peter Leitch, John Stowell, Ben Monder, Victor Lewis, Matt Wilson, and many others. (Time quote by Terry Teachout; Boston Globe by Andrew Gilbert)


“Very refreshing… a singer who’s approaching the music with her voice as an instrument.”
– Dee Dee Bridgewater, DownBeat (blindfold test)
 
“Ms. Shank, an emotionally forthright singer, brings care and confidence to her performance. She sounds equally at home with the worldly ache of “Down Here Below”
and the percussive clangor of “Throw It Away.”
– Nate Chinen, New York Times (Critics’ Choice)
 
“Skin-peeling, heart-stopping renditions. So much beauty and power here.”
– Joseph Blake, Victoria Times Colonist
 
“Shank smoothly navigates difficult passages, handles tempo shifts and chord changes without hesitation or vocal misstep, and can swing, sing the blues or shift into a samba sequence while maintaining control and also putting her own imprint on every number.”
– Ron Wynn, Nashville City Paper

Joan Merrill LET’S GIVE DORIS DAY HER DUE

Joan Merrill LET’S GIVE DORIS DAY HER DUE

January 7, 2020

Joan Merrill
LET’S GIVE DORIS DAY HER DUE

LET’S GIVE DORIS DAY HER DUE
 

Renowned film critic Molly Haskell said, “I think Doris Day is the most underrated, underappreciated actress that has ever come out of Hollywood.”  And Will Friedwald, popular singing guru, says “At her very best, she’s worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as Frank Sinatra or Ella Fitzgerald, yet she’s never gotten a fraction of their respect.”

 Let’s give Doris Day her due.

In focusing on her cinematic “image” of a woman protecting her virtue (in the 1959 movie “Pillow Talk” with Rock Hudson and “A Touch of Mink”with Cary Grant) instead of her career as a whole does her legacy a great disservice.

Doris Day was a popular big band singer with Les Brown  when she recorded the iconic “Sentimental Journey in 1945; a top recording artist for Columbia Records with multiple gold records from 1947 to 1967; a movie actress who was a top ten box office draw in the 1960s (with four years in first place); and one of the first actresses to play a career woman on television (1968 to 1972).
In the first half of her film career (1948-1954), Day was under contract to Warner Brothers and was cast in sixteen musicals, in which she demonstrated not only her singing chops, but a dancing ability that impressed even the films’ choreographers. 

In the twenty-two movies of the second half of her career (1955-1968), Day appeared in only two musicals, “Pajama Game” and “Jumbo,” both of which were outstanding. 

She became the queen of the romantic comedy, and did some heavy drama as Ruth Etting in “Love Me or Leave Me” and her husband’s murder target in “Midnight Lace.”

She most often played a career woman (one of the first actresses to do so), or a widowed or married mother, as in such excellent films as “Teacher’s Pet,” “It Happened to Jane,” “Please Don’t Eat the Daisies,” and “The Thrill of It All.” 

Some of her other movies were inferior, but whenever Doris objected to scripts, her husband and agent Marty Melcher told her she had to do them for the sake of their financial stability. (Little did Doris know then that he was squandering her earnings in bad investments.) 

However, she did turn down “The Graduate”, but not because of her “image,” which she could care less about, but because she didn’t want to play a married woman seducing a man young enough to be her son (and as her own son, Terry). 

In the words of author Tom Santopietro in his excellent book, “Considering Doris Day:”
“When Doris Day was given the right movie script to act and the right song to sing, she was nothing short of terrific. She was an astonishingly talented woman who could do it all and could do it brilliantly.”

It’s time this great artist is given the recognition she deserves.

– Joan Merrill, producer of the tribute show, “Que Sera! Celebrating Doris Day With Kristi King.”

“Delicado”
JAZZIZ Critics’ Picks Playlist:
The Best Songs of 2019 


Listen Here

shem.gif
From Ipanema Beach to Corcovado mountain, the natural beauty of Rio de Janeiro is self-evident. It’s almost as if the postcard itself was invented to honor this coastal city, with its lagoons, forests, and tropical climate. But the same could also be said for the album, as this city has birthed musical styles such as bossa nova, samba and choro. Indeed, elements of these musical styles can be traced to Africa, but there is no mistaking that Rio’s artistic identity is partly defined by these rich genres.

Rio’s musical traditions are the very grist for this production. Delicado is a tribute to the music of this renowned and beloved city. “We wanted to honor the exuberant nature and welcoming spirit of the cariocas,” said Carlos Barbosa-Lima, the guitar maestro and leader of this production. So, he with his fellow musical partners selected several compositions that were written by cariocas or by those familiar with Rio. And what a band Carlos has gathered: Larry Del Casale (guitar), Duduka da Fonseca (percussion), Nilson Matta (bass), and Helio Alves (piano). All four of them have been frequent prior contributors to ZOHO CD releases, most notably recently Duduka Da Fonseca and Nilson Matta on their 2016 Grammy nominated Trio Da Paz “30” ZOHO (ZM 201602).

Tico Tico by Zèquinha de Abreu (1880-1935) is the name of a migrating bird that came from Portugal to Brazil and settled in the early 1900s. This bird inspired de Abreu to write this exciting tune that became an international hit in the early 1940s. This arrangement is for two guitars and incorporates the choros style with up-tempo chorinho. There is a colorful interlude with terrific and well-placed percussion effects by Duduka Da Fonseca. 

The title track Delicado, composed by Waldyr Azevedo (1923-1980), the Brazilian composer and master of the choro music form. He was also virtuoso of the cavaquinho, the small four string guitar, similar to a ukulele. He wrote this song in the 1950s, and it became a sensation around the world. Its rhythm is known as the xaxado, which is a style related to the baiao. This arrangement features both guitars playing the melody, with Barbosa-Lima also playing the bassline throughout. The up-tempo feel is accented with da Fonseca, percussion, and Alves’s elegant piano touches.

Samba de Orfeu is by Luiz Bonfá (1922-2001), a Brazilian composer and guitarist. This piece is played during the climax of the Orfeu tragedy in the iconic 1959 film “Black Orpheus,” which was based on a play by Vinicius de Moraes who adapted the story from Greek legend. Orfeu is pushed from the top of a hill and tumbles to his death. The up-tempo samba rhythm was an all-aboard experience for Barbosa-Lima, as the whole band enriches this number in a magnificent manner. 

A Felicidade by iconic Brazilian composer, arranger, and pianist Antonio Carlos Jobim (1927-1994) is another seminal composition that is played through the 1959 movie “Black Orpheus”. This piece is a moderately paced samba, and Barbosa-Lima’s rendition deftly incorporates new sonorities and a solid rhythmic bass. The coda adds a colorful ending that evokes the mystical spirit of Carnaval.  

 Manhã de Carnaval is again by Luiz Bonfá, the Brazilian composer and guitarist. This piece is played at a dramatic point in the film “Black Orpheus”. We hear this song when Orfeu, a character in the movie, loses everything but wants to retain his guitar at an auction. “It’s one of the most beautiful songs ever written in Brazil,” says Barbosa-Lima. And indeed, his arrangement is both soulful and searing. 

Odeon was written by Ernesto Nazareth (1863-1934), an influential Brazilian composer. The piece incorporates elements of maxixe and merges polka into a style he termed “tango brasileiro.” It was meant as a tribute to the first movie theater in Rio during the twentieth century. Barbosa-Lima arranged the piece for solo guitar in the same key as the original first piano version. 

Manha de Carnaval is again by Luiz Bonfá (1922-2001), the Brazilian composer and guitarist. This piece is played at a dramatic point in the film “Black Orpheus”. We hear this song when Orfeu, a character in the movie, loses everything but wants to retain his guitar at an auction. “It’s one of the most beautiful songs ever written in Brazil,” says Barbosa-Lima. And indeed, his arrangement is both soulful and searing. 

Interrogando is by João Pernambuco (1883-1947), a Brazilian composer and self-taught guitarist. He went to Rio during the late 1800s and had a close friendship with Villa-Lobos, the pre-eminent Classical Brazilian composer of the first half of the 20th century. Barbosa-Lima’s arrangement of this piece respects the original format over a jongo rhythm, and alternates playing as if there are questions and answers.

Feitiço da Vila is by Noel Rosa (1910-1937), a Brazilian composer-songwriter. He was a doctor who died young at the age of twenty-six, before the invention of penicillin. The title means “bewitching villa,” and it’s about Vila Isabel, a northern area of Rio.

Barbosa-Lima’s arrangement incorporates polyphony supported with a clear bass. 
Samba do Avião by Antonio Carlos Jobim was written when he arrived in Rio, as he was excited by his beloved city. Barbosa-Lima’s arrangement adds rhythmic intricacies that helps the overall swing, undoubtedly enriched by the other members of the band. 
Sambolero by Luiz Bonfá – was a dear friend of Barbosa-Lima since he was nine years old. “Luiz introduced me to his teacher Isaias Savio. Luiz was so creative and was able to merge his classical playing with more polyphony to create colorful effects,” said Barbosa-Lima. This piece is a tribute to the merging of the bolero style from all Latin America with the samba-cancao tradition that evolved in the 1950s.

Chovendo na Roseira was also composed Antonio Carlos Jobim. It’s an undulating jazz waltz, and it’s about the rain’s effect on the people of Rio. “This is one of Jobim’s masterpieces,” said Barbosa-Lima. Both he and Del Casale deftly take turns playing the melody to create a stirring rendition of this classic number. 

On Prelude to Canto de Ossanha, famed Brazilian drummer Duduka Da Fonseca introduces the berimbau, a one-stringed percussion instrument which almost looks like a hunting bow. Duduka’s astringent, rhythmically inventive solo creates the perfect counterpoint to the melodically rich composition that follows it. 

Canto de Ossanha was composed by Brazilian guitarist Baden Powell (1937 – 2000) and poet/lyricist Vinicius de Moraes (1913-1980). They both were intrigued by Afro-Brazilian roots and this piece evokes these elements. “I knew Baden Powell well and performed with him. He was a warm person and incredibly creative,” said Barbosa-Lima. The music begins with Barbosa-Lima bending guitar strings to draw a percussive effect.
Eu Não Existo Sem Você by Antonio Carlos Jobim is a haunting piece in the samba-cancao style. Barbosa-Lima arranged the piece for two guitars, and both exchange the leads, and musical flow is never interrupted. With textural percussion, a bittersweet sentiment is present throughout. The Debussy-like coda is both historical and contemporary, with a becoming harmony that fades into resolution.

Tristeza by Haroldo Lobo (1910-1965) and Niltinho (1928-2014) was a big hit in the 1966 carnaval, and it has remained popular. Barbosa-Lima is adding contrapuntal harmonies and classical techniques to this composition. The introduction is a taste of modern Rio, at times noisy (and marred by social unrest), but it gives way to a more harmonious middle section, a reminder of the exuberant nature of this beautiful city. 
It has been a privilege of a lifetime to help produce this album. Performed by virtuosos Carlos Barbosa-Lima and his collaborators, this album has a timeless feel to it.  
-Kabir Sehgal
Multi-GRAMMY & Latin GRAMMY Award winner
New York Times bestselling author

The first time I performed with Carlos Barbosa-Lima was in 2003 at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. We performed his wonderful guitar duo arrangement of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s “Luiza”.  Since that evening, we have performed together as a duo all over the western hemisphere. We also recorded together for ZOHO on Carlos’ albums “Beatlerianas” (ZOHO ZM 201304) and “Carlos Barbosa-Lima plays Mason Williams” (ZOHO ZM 201610).

Carlos is a giant amongst guitarists. His arrangements on Delicado are subtle, sophisticated and virtuosic, taking his harmonic language to a new level. To expand on these arrangements, we enlisted some of the greatest Brazilian jazz musicians performing and recording today. Working with them was a dream and an honor. Therefore, a big abraco to the musicians, engineers, Kabir, ZOHO Music, and my dearest friend who inspires me to play my very best, Carlos Barbosa-Lima!

New York Times Best Of 2019 Picks A Track From Dave Stryker’s Eight Track Christmas

New York Times Best Of 2019 Picks A Track From Dave Stryker’s Eight Track Christmas

New York Times Best of 2019
picks a track from Eight Track Christmas

The guitarist Dave Stryker trades melody duties with the vibraphonist Stefon Harris on this cover of Donny Hathaway’s modern-day Christmas classic. Rounded out by the organist Jared Gold and the drummer McClenty Hunter (doubling on jingle bells), Stryker’s Eight Track Band plays the tune at the same sauntering, medium tempo that Hathaway used; even without Hathaway’s munificent voice or the boisterous horn section of the original, the tune’s infectious, syncopated melody and the low-key virtuosity of this quartet’s members are enough. GIOVANNI RUSSONELLO

New York vocalist Kendra Shank pays tribute to her friend and mentor Abbey Lincoln (1930 – 2010) in a program of songs composed by the legendary singer, songwriter, actress, poet, civil rights activist, and NEA Jazz Master whose powerful messages of love, struggle, hope, and freedom are timeless and timely. Shank’s CD A Spirit Free: Abbey Lincoln Songbook (2007, the first Lincoln songbook ever recorded) received a New York Times Critics’ Choice, 4 stars in DownBeat, and numerous “Best of the Year” awards, among other accolades. “Her tribute is both reverent and creative, illuminating new possibilities for these songs and shedding new light on their composer” (Larry Blumenfeld, Entertainment Weekly). Shank played guitar on Lincoln’s Over the Years CD and live with her at the Blue Note. “Abbey’s songs celebrate the human spirit and address social issues that are relevant to our times,” says Kendra, “I’m honored to celebrate her legacy and 90th birthyear at Winter Jazzfest.”

Last Fridays Residency @ 55 Bar: 55 Christopher St, NYC


“A wide open, mind-bending celebration of the human spirit.” -Tom Henry, The Blade

Kendra Shank’s seven CDs have won numerous “Best of the Year” citations, DownBeat poll recognition, and acclaim for her “delectable voice” (TIME magazine) and “breathtakingly original concept” (Boston Globe). Her career began as a folk singer-guitarist busking in Paris. When her passion turned to jazz, she studied with vocalist Jay Clayton in Seattle and was also mentored by Shirley Horn who co-produced her debut album and showcased her at the Village Vanguard in 1992. Since then Shank has headlined at New York’s Blue Note, Birdland, Jazz Standard, Iridium, and holds an 18-year residency at the 55 Bar. She’s appeared on NPR’s JazzSet and Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz and has toured in Europe, Japan, South Africa, Australia, Canada and the U.S. including jazz festivals in Portland, Saratoga, Seattle, Calgary, Edmonton, Vienne, Marciac, Wangaratta, and more. In addition to her 21-year collaboration with Frank Kimbrough and Dean Johnson, Shank has performed and/or recorded with Fred Hersch, Larry Willis, Geoffrey Keezer, Bob Dorough, Jay Clayton, Joe Locke, Gary Bartz, Steve Wilson, Peter Leitch, John Stowell, Ben Monder, Victor Lewis, Matt Wilson, and many others. (Time quote by Terry Teachout; Boston Globe by Andrew Gilbert)


“Very refreshing… a singer who’s approaching the music with her voice as an instrument.”
– Dee Dee Bridgewater, DownBeat (blindfold test)
 
“Ms. Shank, an emotionally forthright singer, brings care and confidence to her performance. She sounds equally at home with the worldly ache of “Down Here Below”
and the percussive clangor of “Throw It Away.”
– Nate Chinen, New York Times (Critics’ Choice)
 
“Skin-peeling, heart-stopping renditions. So much beauty and power here.”
– Joseph Blake, Victoria Times Colonist
 
“Shank smoothly navigates difficult passages, handles tempo shifts and chord changes without hesitation or vocal misstep, and can swing, sing the blues or shift into a samba sequence while maintaining control and also putting her own imprint on every number.”
– Ron Wynn, Nashville City Paper

“Once in awhile, a talent comes along that’s an undeniable force of nature. Roberta Donnay fits that description.” – Music and More Arizona 

“With her singularly enticing sound, few contemporary vocalists are as well suited to dustily vintage material as jazz-blues stylist Roberta Donnay..”
– Jazz Times

 

“Donnay’s voice could make any classic material sound wondrous and timeless, but the fact that she digs so deep into American musical history — makes “A Little Sugar” not only sweet, but a recording that will stand the test of time.” – All Music Guide
 

“Roberta Donnay is a Jazz Age preservationist, guardian of Depression-era sounds, and extender of traditions, but her music isn’t covered with cobwebs or dated in any way. On Bathtub Gin, this singer- composer puts a new coat of paint on the songs of the ’20s and ’30s, contributes originals sympathetic to the sounds of those times, and conjures thoughts of life during prohibition.”
– All About Jazz

 

“[Roberta Donnay’s] engagement with the lyrics, her supple sense of time and her soulful, little-girl timbre remind you of Billie Holiday.”
-Mike Zwerin, International Herald Tribune

 

“She is an endangered species.” – Dr. Herb Wong

Award-winning vocalist and songwriter Roberta Donnay is that rare species of musician who almost lives in another time, as she and her Prohibition Mob Band exist to revive the Jazz Age of America. ~ Motema Music

BILLBOARD CHARTING
KATHERINE FARNHAM
PERFORMS AT
MUSIC  CITY STEINWAY GALLERY
JANUARY 24TH, 2020

shem.gif

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Billboard charting, six-time Global Music Award Medalist and internationally acclaimed jazz and Americana singer/songwriter/pianist Katherine ‘KOOL KAT’ Farnham will perform with her longtime band at the Steinway Gallery in Nashville on Friday, January 24, 2020. The concert will feature originals from her new project as well as beloved favorites.
 

The four-octave vocalist and classically trained pianist has recorded with many renowned musicians, including legendary saxophonist and Grammy winner Kirk Whalum, Latin Grammy winner Nestor Torres and Grammy nominees Mindi Abair and Denny Jiosa. Her award-winning, internationally acclaimed ‘Vintage’ LP garnered interviews and airplay in US, Canada, Europe, South America and Africa along with standing ovation and sold out live performances. In recognition of this album’s significant contributions, it was placed in the jazz archives at the Mediatheque Musicale in Paris, France.
 

She has earned the love of fans and jazz aficionados alike with her unique and retitled single ‘My Funky Valentine’. Jazz Weekly says, “Farnham adds some backbeat to a clever read of a standard in ‘My Funky Valentine’ and her voice is rich and strongly confident.” Two-Time Emmy Nominee and Celebrity Radio Host Philip Silverstone captured her essence raving, “absolutely brilliant. Kool Kat is doing for jazz what Clapton did for the blues – bringing it to the mainstream.”
 

Katherine has appeared on Good Morning America, sung live on NBC 6 and Telemundo and toured throughout the US and abroad. She has performed at festivals including the Hub City Jazz Festival outside New York City, and on stages with Latin jazz greats Tito Puente Jr and Celia Cruz. She has even inspired audiences with her formidable courage at major sporting events such as the Ericsson Open where she was the only female artist, The Miami Marathon and national tour dates for NASCAR.
 

A third generation musician, Farnham possesses a world-class musical legacy. She began performing as leading lady in a school play at the tender age of five, and gave her first jazz vocal solo performance a few months later. She studied with her mother, a concert pianist, educator and vocal coach for The Sante Fe Opera. Her mother studied with European concert artist Madame Dayas, who studied with her parents, who studied with legendary pianist/ composer Franz Liszt.
 

The singer/songwriter/pianist’s intense passion and skill have resulted in many accolades, including a Billboard-charting hit for “Necessary Groove”. In addition to her six Global Music Award wins, she is a Los Angeles Music Award winner and was named the top Female Singer/ Songwriter in the entire quarter century run of the awards show. She also has been honored with the prestigious Hollywood F.A.M.E. Award, a Rotary Outstanding Award and in 2019 was one of the youngest recipients of the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award.
 

Farnham has also performed for many charitable organizations throughout the nation. She supports veterans causes, ASPCA, Doctors Without Borders and others.
 

The Steinway Gallery is located at 4285 Sidco Drive in Nashville, TN. Tickets are $25.00. There will be a product giveaway during the show. Parking is free. For directions, call (615) 373-5901.
