And especially here

 

As THE FILM FORUM continues its ongoing celebration of African American women in the cinema, we present a fabulous compilation of rare concert performances of the First Lady of Song performing GEORGE & IRA GERSHWIN classics, both solo and alongside the likes of FRANK SINATRA, DUKE ELLINGTON, COUNT BASIE & SAMMY DAVIS, JR. The great Fitzgerald did no less than three Gershwin Songbook albums, the most famous of which is the epic five-disc, 60-song masterpiece package with Nelson Riddle’s Orchestra. Produced by Bruce Goldstein and Compiled & hosted by WALL STREET JOURNAL (and CITIVIEW) award-winning journalist and historian Will Friedwald. Compiled from a combination of rare European concert footage and great American variety shows of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. When we first presented this program in honor of the First Lady’s centennial three years ago, it completely sold out, and that’s highly likely to happen again, so it’s best to procure tickets in advance.

There will be two shows (both on Monday Jan 27) : 2:20PM & 6:40PM

Welcome! Please subscribe to our blogs and stay informed about the best things to do in New York City.

Jazz guitarist Roni Ben-Hur has earned a sterling reputation as a musician and educator, renowned for his golden tone, improvisational brilliance, compositional lyricism and ability to charm peers, students and listeners alike. Eminent jazz critic Gary Giddins wrote in the Village Voice: “A limber and inventive guitarist, Ben-Hur keeps the modernist flame alive and pure, with a low flame burning in every note… [He’s] a guitarist who knows the changes and his own mind.” Ben-Hur – born in Israel in 1962 but a longtime American citizen, now based in Harlem, New York – has released 11 albums as leader or co-leader, with Time Out New York calling him “a formidable and consummately lyrical guitarist.” The Star-Ledger of New Jersey summed him up this way: “A deep musician, a storyteller, Ben-Hur works with a warm, glowing sound and has an alluring way of combining engaging notes with supple rhythm.”

What The Press Is Saying About One Night at Chris’:
Press Release:  The New Dave Wilson Quartet has released their new CD “One Night at Chris’” on Dave Wilson Music! (Release date: 5/27/2019)
One Night at Chris’ is the fifth release of The Dave Wilson Quartet, recorded live at the famous Chris’ Jazz Cafe ‘in Philadelphia, PA in March of 2018. Featuring  Dave Wilson – Tenor and Soprano Saxophones; Kirk Reese – Piano (East Coast Legend); Tony Marino – Acoustic Bass (From the Dave Liebman Group); Dan Monaghan – Drums (Legendary Philadelphia drummer); Wilson’s Spiral (Summit Records-2010) and There Was Never (ZOHOMusic-2016) were critically acclaimed and received significant airplay nationwide, the latter rising to #18 on the Jazz Weekly countdown. The disc contains 10 tracks, four originals by Wilson and six re-arrangements by/of pop/rock favorites including The Grateful Dead’s “Friend Of The Devil”, The Beatles’ “Norwegian Wood,” Creed’s “My Own Prison, ”Ambrosia’s 1980 hit single, “Biggest Part of Me,” and The Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows.” Bill Milkowski states in the liner notes of the CD, “savvy adaptations of familiar pop tunes, filtered through a distinctly jazzy prism.” And, from Bill Milkowski. “The crackling intensity of One Night at Chris’ is a testament to what can happen on the bandstand on any given night. And this was a particularly good night indeed.” The recording is a document of one evening of music recorded live, no overdubs, no second takes and with all the nuances, surprises and magic known as Jazz. This past summer the recording was in rotation nationwide, achieved “Chartbound” status (Top 50) on jazz radio, and garnered positive reviews (read further below). It also made WRTI-FM, the leading Jazz Radio Station in Philadelphia, “Jazz Album of the Week”, the week of August 26thOne Night at Chris is perhaps Dave’s greatest work, yet!
 
Matt Silver for WRTI Jazz Radio in Philadelphia:
Jazz Album of the Week: It All Comes Together for The Dave Wilson Quartet One Night at Chris’s
August 26, 2019. …if the aim is to recreate a sophisticated evening of live jazz in the comfort of your own home, you really can’t beat One Night at Chris’s, the fifth recording from The Dave Wilson Quartet. Recorded before a live audience at Chris’s Jazz Café, Philadelphia’s longstanding jazz club par excellenceOne Night at Chris’s accomplishes all you could want from a live recording: genre-bending covers and bold originals, a fusion of the straight ahead and the slightly more avant-garde, and easy chemistry between a great group of musicians, each of whom are playing at or near their best.
 
Dick Metcalf (AKA Rotcod Zzaj) /Contemporary Fusion Reviews 
Stunning live saxophone jazz The Dave Wilson Quartet – ONE NIGHT AT CHRIS’:  I first reviewed Dave’s stunning live saxophone jazz way back in issue # 106, where he got a “PICK” for “best jazz quartet”… his new album brings you even hipper jazz (if that’s possible)…  Dave’s swingin’ original “Ocean Blues“, is the opener for the album, and the depth of his talent becomes totally clear… I’ve no doubt this tune will be getting MAJOR rotations on jazz stations ’round the globe (for years & years to come)!this new release digs even deeper into the cool that Dave & his players make happen for you… and all the players are just “ON”… if I were on the panels voting for jazz winners, this tune would be nominated & WIN awards.
I give Dave & his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this great jazz release.  
 
 
From CHRIS SPECTOR, Editor and Publisher, Midwestrecord.com
 “DAVE WILSON QUARTET/One Night at Chris’:  A protean sax man that can lead his crew through anything, he smokes on originals and covers that you wouldn’t think fit the format—but they do.  Lively and crackling, they are turned on by the live Philly audience and make sure they heat up the night properly.  Tasty stuff that makes you wish you were there.​”
 
Vittorio Lo Conte, www.musiczoom.it
  “”It was a good night” and for this simple reason the recording of the concert has now been published on disc. Dave Wilson’s quartet is in a state of grace, full of energy, a continuous flow of ideas from one piece to another. Dave Wilson’s quartet is in a state of grace, full of energy, a continuous flow of ideas from one piece to another….The disc works to perfection showing how jazz, made by inspired musicians, can engulf material that comes from the world of pop and current rock without giving up the swing.”
 
Dodie Miller-Gouldlemonwire.com:
 The Dave Wilson Quartet mixes things up on “One Night at Chris’”
     “…What is noteworthy is the choice of songs that The Dave Wilson Quartet have covered. All of the cover songs are unexpected. Each offers listeners a bit of insight into the style and perhaps the inspiration of the quartet members…The songs included on “One Night at Chris’” have been captured in one take – – no overdubs, no retakes. The result is a recording that crackles with liveliness and a verve that resonates with the traditions of jazz, even when the group is taking on songs that are from rock and pop traditions….
 
Jim Hynes, www.makingascene.org
 “…This is a great fusion of straight-ahead and exploratory jazz, highly accessible, and packed full of the energy one expects in a live recording.” 
 
 Joe Ross, Roots Music Report: 
 “Bands occasionally have a terrible night or encounter the dreaded “gig from hell.” On the other hand, well-rehearsed groups also have exceptional nights when everything clicks. The Dave Wilson Quartet experienced the latter when they played Chris’ Jazz Café in Philadelphia in March 2018…While the quartet really spotlights Dave Wilson’s sax, he and Kirk Reese (piano) trade lyrical improvised expressions, with colorful shading and distinctive twists, in this quartet’s very pleasant set of jazz.   
 
Grady Harp, Hall of Fame Top 100 Reviewer:   
“Dave Wilson, a prominent jazz saxophonist/band leader/composer/educator in the Pennsylvania area, brings his quartet’s recording a sense of immediacy…
Fine sound from fine musicians with the added excitement of a live performance!”
 
 DOUG MACDONALD, Jazz CD News/Reviews: The Audiophile Man:
“…Smooth but still crackling with energy, at ease but still ‘on’ the occasion, Wilson’s mob offers patterns of complexity that dance around the central themes. Playful too –…Clever stuff.”

McClenty Hunter – drums 
 
In 2013, Dave Stryker hit on an album concept based on instrumental interpretations of classic r&b and pop tunes from his high school years in Omaha, Nebraska. The album, entitled Eight Track, proved to be a career breakthrough for the guitarist some three decades after his entry into bigtime jazz as a sideman with organist Jack McDuff. The radio and sales reaction to the first Eight Track CD led to two further volumes – and the result, says Stryker, has been “not only fun, but musically rewarding. Playing these classic melodies from the ’70s has been a great way to connect with people and bring more people to the music, whether they remember the songs or are just discovering them. I enjoy the challenge of finding my way into these tunes by putting my own stamp on them through the arrangements and playing.” “Papa Was A Rolling Stone,” “Pretzel Logic,” “Too High,” “This Guy’s In Love With You” – any and all of these indelible songs could be part of the Stryker sets this week, with special guest Warren Wolf on vibes.

(New York City, January 21, 2020) —Lyricist and director Richard Maltby, Jr. and composer David Shire will be honored at the 35th annual Bistro Awards, where they will be receiving the Bob Harrington Lifetime Achievement Award, the Bistro Award’s highest honor, for their more than 50 years of musical accomplishments.

 

The songwriting team, one of the longest-running musical partnerships in Broadway history, is probably best known for such Broadway shows as Baby (seven Tony nominations, including Best Musical and Best Score), Big (Tony nomination for Best Score), and two Off-Broadway revues, Starting Here, Starting Now (Grammy nomination for Best Cast Album), and Closer Than Ever (Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical). These two revues got their start in smaller nightclub venues: the cabaret at the Manhattan Theatre Club and Eight Eight’s, respectively.

 

In addition to their collaborative efforts, each has an impressive list of individual accomplishments.

 

Mr. Maltby conceived and directed two Tony Award-winning musicals — Ain’t Misbehavin’ (Tony, New York Drama Critics, Outer Critics Circle, and Drama Desk awards and a Tony for Maltby’s direction) and Fosse (Tony, Outer Critics Circle. Drama Desk awards) — as well as Ring of Fire. (Ain’t Misbehavin’ also got its start in the Manhattan Theatre Club’s cabaret.) With Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg, he was the co-lyricist on Miss Saigon (Tony nomination for Best Score), co-lyricist on The Pirate Queen, and director of The Story of My Life. He directed and was the co-lyricist on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Song & Dance, and was at the helm for Just Jim Dale.

 

Mr. Shire is an Oscar and Grammy winner and Emmy nominee who has composed prolifically for film, television, and recordings. His feature film scores include Norma Rae (Academy Award), The ConversationAll the President’s MenThe Taking of Pelham 1-2-3ZodiacFarewell, My LovelyThe Hindenburg, Saturday Night Fever (two Grammy Awards), and others. His television scores have earned him five Emmy nominations. His songs have been recorded by Barbra Streisand, Maureen McGovern, Melissa Manchester, Glenn Campbell, Johnny Mathis, Nancy LaMott, Billy Preston and Syreeta Wright, and numerous others.

 

Other stage productions by the pair include Take Flight (produced in London, Tokyo, St. Petersburg, and at N.J.’s McCarter Theatre), Dancers at a Waterfall (Pasadena Playhouse, Seattle’s Fifth Avenue Theatre), and Sousatzka (Toronto). They are currently collaborating on new musicals with Adam Gopnik.

 

The Bistro Awards gala will be held on Monday, March 9 at 7 pm at Gotham Comedy Club, 208 W. 23rd St., produced by Sherry Eaker, who has headed up the event since its inception in 1985.

 

A full list of winners will be announced at the end of January; tickets will go on sale at that time on the Bistro Awards website: www.BistroAwards.com.

GARY LUCAS HIGHLIGHTS OF 2019 / UPCOMING SHOWS

shem.gif
Gary Lucas Live at the Monk Club Rome Italy with The Niro 12/27/19  
photo copyright Mario Rimati

2019 was a very busy year for GARY LUCAS.

His new album with Italian singer The Niro, “The Complete Jeff Buckley and Gary Lucas” (Esordisco), was just voted Best Album of 2019 in Classic Rock Magazine Italia. 

Review from the Downtown Music Gallery Newsletter NYC 1/17/19:

THE NIRO Featuring GARY LUCAS / DAVIDE COMBUSTI / FRANCESCO ARPINO / et al – The Complete Jeff Buckley and Gary Lucas Songbook (Esordisco 1902; Italy) The Niro features Gary Lucas on lead guitars, Davide Combusti on vocals, Francesco Arpino on keyboards, Phil Spalding on bass and Puccio Panettieri on drums. When Jeff Buckley came to NYC in early 1990’s, he was a relative unknown. He soon played at a historic memorial/tribute concert to his long-estranged father, Tim Buckley and wowed the audience due to amazing singing. Former Capt. Beefheart guitar great, Gary Lucas, began collaborating with Jeff Buckley, writing a dozen songs over a ten month period. Each song turned out to be something special. Young Mr. Buckley soon became the lead singer & rhythm guitarist in Mr. Lucas’s band Gods and Monsters, who got signed to Columbia Records. I caught that version of Gods and Monsters play at St. Ann’s in March of 1992 and they were extraordinary! Sadly, Mr. Buckley soon left the band to pursue a solo career, taking two of the songs for his first solo effort with “Grace” becoming the title song. In 1997, Mr. Buckley began work on his second solo effort, relocating to Memphis to record. In May of that year, Mr. Buckley decided to go swimming in the Mississippi River and soon drowned, ending his life at just 30. In 2002, an album called ’Songs to No One’ was released and included the songs that Buckley and Lucas had recorded as demos. And now, nearly three decades after they were written, Gary Lucas teams up with an Italian rock band known as The Niro to perform all 12 songs that he and Mr. Buckley had written together. This includes five songs which have never appeared on a legit release before now.

Although I recognize the names of 100’s of Italian musicians from jazz and progressive bands, old & new, I hadn’t heard of most of the musicians here. It turns out that their bassist, Phil Spalding, did play with GTR (w/ Steve Howe & Steve Hackett). This disc begins with the five unreleased songs, all of which are superb. The opening song is “No One Must Find You Here” and it begins with Mr. Lucas distinctive swirling guitars. The lead singer here, Davide Combusti, has a strong voice which is similar to Mr. Buckley’s yet it is still his own. And similar to Mr. Buckley’s voice, he sounds like he was influenced by Robert Plant when he sang for Led Zep. It is also you will either really love or not, I am indeed impressed. Both the songs and performances are inspired throughout. The first song ends with an impressive solo guitar section, which is a perfect conclusion to a great opening song. What makes this disc so special is the endlessly inventive guitar playing of Mr. Lucas, inserting nifty flourishes of electric & acoustic guitars with the sly sonic seasoning of the assorted effects that Lucas has long mastered. The feeling that I get when listening to this disc is that is sounds like the long lost album that Mr. Buckley and Mr. Lucas started in 1992 and never really finished. Jeff Buckley was a major player in his own right with many fans around the world. His career was cut short by his early death with just a handful of releases under his belt. Hopefully this great disc will be heard by some of his passionate fans since it is well worth hearing. Quite a marvelous effort from Gary Lucas and The Niro! – Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG  
CD $15

Gary closed 2019 with 5 weeks on the road touring in Italy with The Niro and Francesco Arpino, and concerts and Masterclasses in France, Belgium, and Holland.

STRICTLY FOR THE BIRDS!
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 7TH
8 PM

CLUB BONAFIDE, 212 EAST 52ND STREET, NYC 

MJ Territo, vocals; David Pearl, piano; Paul Beaudry, bass; Jarrett Walser, drums.
Special Guest: Wendy Luck, flute 


Please join us for an encore performance of “Strictly For The Birds”, an evening of jazz and song inspired by our feathered friends. When I created this set it was strictly for fun, and an amusing way to pay homage to my vocal heroine, Carmen McRae, who put out “Birds of a Feather” in 1958. Now, the recent news that North American birds are disappearing at an alarming rate puts another, more urgent spin on it. So please come for the swinging music, but also for the opportunity to honor the larks and nightingales, the robins and swallows, who create so much pleasure for our ears and eyes. The composers are as varied as the bird life, everyone from Gershwin to Tadd Dameron, Brubeck to Roland Kirk, and of course, The Bird himself. 

This charming painting, “16 Birds”, by Jennifer Lommers, gives us a birds-eye view of our everyday birds – cardinals and chickadees, jays and finches. I love the way each black eye has such a firm and particular focus. A big thank you to Jennifer, a jazz lover, for permission to use her work in the publicity for this gig. https://www.jenniferlommers.com/

Nanny Assis and his vocalist son Daniel embody the joy and happiness of Brazil’s Bahia region, where Nanny was born. A drummer who branched out to become a multi-instrumentalist and composer, his talents and performing charisma made him a top attraction since relocating to New York 20 years ago. Nanny has collaborated with countless jazz luminaries, been named Brazil’s Vocalist of the Year and packed the city’s top clubs.

Christian Sands Trio

FRI & SAT • JAN 31 & Feb 1

Not yet 30, Christian Sands is currently one of the most in-demand pianists working in Jazz. Wynton Marsalis named him a “Jazz star of the future,” and he’s enjoyed a position in Christian McBride’s trio for the last several years. He takes a fresh look at the entire language of Jazz: stride, swing, bebop, progressive, fusion, Brazilian and Afro-Cuban.

Tenor Gladness! George Garzone & Jerry Bergonzi Quintet

FRI & SAT • FEB 7 & Feb 8
7 & 9:30 PM


A double-barreled sax attack forms the front line of this exciting Boston-area quintet. Jerry Bergonzi burst on the scene playing with Dave Brubeck in the 1970s and Jazz Times calls him “One of America’s premier living tenor saxophonists.” George Garzone, longtime member of the innovative jazz trio The Fringe while also backing countless pop acts like The Temptations, earned praise from The New Yorker as “a beacon of hard-won virtuosity.” Their ensemble work and solos are sure to amaze.

Rodrigo Nassif Trio

SUN • FEB 9
4 & 6 PM


Hailing from Southern Brazil – territory disputed long ago by Spanish and Portuguese colonialists – guitarist/pianist Rodrigo Nassif is considered the national standard of contemporary instrumental music. His unique style blends those twin influences of his homeland, and critics have called it “jazzmilonga,” mixing jazz, folk, rock and classical elements. His first three solo albums earned critical praise and his first quartet record rocketed to the top of Brazil’s ITunes chart.

ESQUIRE MAGAZINE  

 

At Minton’s, you’re part of the choir. There’s this part in “Moanin'” where—not in the original version but in this one, arranged by JC Hopkins and which his band, JC Hopkins’ Biggish Band, plays—the horn section shouts out, call-and-response style. This night, we get in on it, too. Bum be de BOMP. HEY! Be dop bop be da BOMP. HEY! Bum be de BOMP. HEY! And it’s not anger any longer, but joy.

Dave Stryker – guitar
Warren Wolf – vibraphone
Jared Gold – Hammond B3
McClenty Hunter – drums 
 
In 2013, Dave Stryker hit on an album concept based on instrumental interpretations of classic r&b and pop tunes from his high school years in Omaha, Nebraska. The album, entitled Eight Track, proved to be a career breakthrough for the guitarist some three decades after his entry into bigtime jazz as a sideman with organist Jack McDuff. The radio and sales reaction to the first Eight Track CD led to two further volumes – and the result, says Stryker, has been “not only fun, but musically rewarding. Playing these classic melodies from the ’70s has been a great way to connect with people and bring more people to the music, whether they remember the songs or are just discovering them. I enjoy the challenge of finding my way into these tunes by putting my own stamp on them through the arrangements and playing.” “Papa Was A Rolling Stone,” “Pretzel Logic,” “Too High,” “This Guy’s In Love With You” – any and all of these indelible songs could be part of the Stryker sets this week, with special guest Warren Wolf on vibes. Make your reservations now!

 Bennett Paster Trio
Appearing @
Mezzrow, Sunday 1/19

shem.gif

Keyboardist, composer and producer Bennett Paster’s June, 2019 release Indivisible has garnered critical reviews in the press and has been played around the country on college and public radio stations.  

 

Paster’s trio, with bassist Ed Howard and drummer Tim Horner, return to Mezzrow in NYC on Sunday, January 19th (MLK Day Weekend) with sets at 7:30 and 9pm.  Expect to hear a broad-based selection of standards, jazz standards, originals and even some Stevie Wonder and Beatles songs performed in a swinging while conversational, classic jazz piano trio context.  Featuring an expressive 6’2” Steinway A piano, Mezzrow is NYC’s premier intimate piano listening room, so be sure to make reservations in advance.

 

“A very fine keyboardist and pianist, Bennett Paster grows by leaps and bounds with every project.  On his new CD Indivisible, he doesn’t synthesize his influences, but rather turns every composition into his own private vision of blues, mainstream jazz, funk, New Orleans and beyond… He displays bebop sensibilities while reserving the best of his immense talents for a sense of teamwork.”    (MGN, Hot House Magazine, June 2019)

Beyond Jazz is a monthly workshop co-led by Rick Savage, Joe Vincent Tranchina and Steve Rubin.   The sessions are an exploration of ensemble playing via improvisation.

Different artists have participated including Jeff Ciampa, Michael D’Agostino, Ian Smit, Kevin Brown, Neil Alexander, Dave Smith, Bob Rosen, Billy Stein, Rick Savage, Steve Rubin, Joe Vincent Tranchina and Ed Littman, to name a few.
Over the years some of these players have brought this improvisational approach to the Seligmann Center in Sugar Loaf and the Warwick Center for The Performing Arts.

There have been performances with a fine artist working with a large canvas , dancers, spoken word and slide shows, each invoking an in the moment reaction by the players.

For this performance, Ian Smit, Michael D’Agostino, Rick Savage, Joe Vincent Tranchina, Kevin Brown and Steve Rubin will provide guitar & effects, percussion and drums, trumpet, flugelhorn, electric keyboards, acoustic bass, drums and more percussion.

They’ve chosen groupings of images which will be projected onto the screen at the community center.

The music created , at that moment is influenced by the collective reaction of the musicians to the images

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma!”Directed by Daniel Fish Circle in the Square: Will’s New York Nite Life

Will’s New York Nite Life

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma!”
Directed by Daniel Fish
Circle in the Square 
1633 Broadway
Through Sunday January 19

shem.gif

When I first started hearing about this new country-fied production of Oklahoma!, my little pea brain flashed to Sinatra’s late-life gag introduction of a song by Rodgers and Hart as “Roy Rogers and William S. Hart,” citing two famous movie cowboys rather than the legendary Broadway composers. I was only able to get tickets very late in the run – which is a lot better than nothing – and wanted to see if what I had been hearing about the production was true, that it rewrites Oklahoma! as if it had been composed by Roy Acuff and Merle Haggard rather than Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. Now I can tell you that it does and it doesn’t – while the overall tone of the show is certainly more country-and-western than traditional Broadway, director Daniel Fish and musical director Nathan Koci still keep the essential bones of the show and the songs. For instance, the opener “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’” is still a waltz, in fact, it’s waltz-ier than ever.

The idea of a country-and-western Oklahoma! goes back at least to 1970, when TV host Ed Sullivan presented the opening scene with Jeanie C. Riley (of “Harper Valley PTA” fame) as “Laurey” and the legendary Minnie Pearl as “Aunt Eller” on his long-running variety show. If Mr. Fish were to really rewrite the show, he might think to provide Aunt Eller (the excellent Mary Testa) with a solo song of her own, seeing as she’s the first of those matronly pillars of wisdom that re-appear across the entire history of R&H shows, as in Carousel, South Pacific (sort of), The King & I, Cinderella, and especially The Sound of Music; there’s always a sagacious middle aged woman telling young lovers (individually or in pairs) to climb ev’ry mountain. (I also regret that “Gertie Cummings” doesn’t get a song, especially since Mallory Portnoy steals almost every scene with a clarion-like laugh that’s more sexy than obnoxious, as it’s supposed to be.) 

Mssr’s. Fish and Koci take considerable liberties with the “Dream Ballet,” in which the theme (known lyrically as “Out of My Dreams”) rendered via a solo electric guitar, heavy on the distortions, clearly modelled on Jimi Hendrix playing the national anthem at Woodstock – however, yes, it’s still in 3/4. The most egregious mistake is that they stick the intermission right in the middle of the dream ballet, as if they didn’t trust the audience’s attention span, or their bladders. In this re-imagining, “Jud Fry” (Patrick Vail) is a full-on psychopath. In “Poor Jud is Daid,” “Curly” (Damon Daunno) seems to be seducing Jud, rather than bunko-ing him as is customary, into committing suicide, and here, Jud’s solo, “Lonely Room” becomes his chilling equivalent of Sweeney Todd’s “Epiphany.”  

This version has been described as “darker,” but for most of the stage time, it’s funnier than ever, especially with “Will Parker” played by James Davis as a deadpan comic cowboy who wouldn’t be out of place in a Broadway version of Blazing Saddles. At times it seems like a parody, Oklahoma! as if enacted by the cast of Hee-Haw (with Junior Samples as Will and Gunilla Hutton as Ado Annie), but is all the more enjoyable for that. Which makes the abrupt ending – no spoiler alert here – seem more out-of-place than ever. This is the only part where they fundamentally change the show as conceived by Dick & Ockie (even without actually changing the dialogue), and it’s completely unnecessary; it seems to me that they could have done the actual ending (Curly and Jud in a knife fight, and the drunken heavy winds up falling on his own shiv) and made it disturbing enough. But that’s one of the more important aspects of a classic: you aren’t allowed to take any aspect of it for granted.  

A final note about the first thing you see when you enter the Circle in the Square, which is that the walls of this theater-in-the-almost-round are festooned with dozens of decorative rifles and shootin’ irons. Perhaps next, the NRA will commission Mr. Fish to devise a second amendment re-do of Annie Get Your Gun; apparently this is the first-ever right-to-carry production of Rodgers & Hammerstein.

 Bennett Paster Trio
Appearing @
Mezzrow, Sunday 1/19

shem.gif

Keyboardist, composer and producer Bennett Paster’s June, 2019 release Indivisible has garnered critical reviews in the press and has been played around the country on college and public radio stations.  

 

Paster’s trio, with bassist Ed Howard and drummer Tim Horner, return to Mezzrow in NYC on Sunday, January 19th (MLK Day Weekend) with sets at 7:30 and 9pm.  Expect to hear a broad-based selection of standards, jazz standards, originals and even some Stevie Wonder and Beatles songs performed in a swinging while conversational, classic jazz piano trio context.  Featuring an expressive 6’2” Steinway A piano, Mezzrow is NYC’s premier intimate piano listening room, so be sure to make reservations in advance.

 

“A very fine keyboardist and pianist, Bennett Paster grows by leaps and bounds with every project.  On his new CD Indivisible, he doesn’t synthesize his influences, but rather turns every composition into his own private vision of blues, mainstream jazz, funk, New Orleans and beyond… He displays bebop sensibilities while reserving the best of his immense talents for a sense of teamwork.”    (MGN, Hot House Magazine, June 2019)

 

Sunday January 19th

Mezzrow, Sets at 7:30 and 9pm

Afro Latin Jazz Alliance presents

 

JAZZ ACROSS THE AMERICAS: ARGENTINA – Tribute to Lalo Schifrin

Arturo O’Farrill & the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra

 

GUEST ARTISTS

Pablo Aslan & Sofia Rei

Leo Genovese, Juancho Herrera, Franco Pinna, Gabriel Senanes

 

The language of Jazz and Tango, of Africa, Europe, and Argentina are irrevocably intertwined in the genius of Lalo Schifrin. His stamp on American culture, from Hollywood to the concert stage and beyond is irrefutable. Arturo O’Farrill & the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra celebrate Schifrin’s visionary “Gillespiana Suite” and reflect on its impact on contemporary masters like Guillermo Klein, Emilio Sollam and many others. Special guest curators and performers for the show are Argentinian artists Pablo Aslan and Sofia Rei. 

 

Gillespiana Suite – written by Lalo in the early days of his career for Dizzy Gillespie – will be performed in its entirety for the first time in over 25 years, conducted by Pablo Aslan. Sofia Rei’s contribution features contemporary takes on the work of legendary Argentinian folkloric artists Leda Valladares and Cuchi Leguizamon, all performed in the distinctive style of Arturo and the ALJO. 

 

“This celebration of the Maestro and of his beloved Argentina is exactly what the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra was created for.”

 

– Arturo O’Farrill

Artistic Director of the ALJO

Imagine receiving an invitation to a gala featuring John Coltrane, Sigmund Freud, and Faust. Bruce Forman’s “The Red Guitar” is all that and more. It draws on Forman’s decades of experience as a formidable jazz guitarist and his considerable skill as a storyteller and teacher, producing a work that is greater than the sum of its dazzling parts. Enlisting the full power of the jazz idiom and integrating it with seasoned and provocative story-telling, he confronts the dilemma of artistic obsession face-to-face—by creating a work of art that simultaneously explores and demonstrates the hold that music has over its most ardent followers. The Red Guitar: Do you play it…or does it play you?

McClenty Hunter – drums 
 
In 2013, Dave Stryker hit on an album concept based on instrumental interpretations of classic r&b and pop tunes from his high school years in Omaha, Nebraska. The album, entitled Eight Track, proved to be a career breakthrough for the guitarist some three decades after his entry into bigtime jazz as a sideman with organist Jack McDuff. The radio and sales reaction to the first Eight Track CD led to two further volumes – and the result, says Stryker, has been “not only fun, but musically rewarding. Playing these classic melodies from the ’70s has been a great way to connect with people and bring more people to the music, whether they remember the songs or are just discovering them. I enjoy the challenge of finding my way into these tunes by putting my own stamp on them through the arrangements and playing.” “Papa Was A Rolling Stone,” “Pretzel Logic,” “Too High,” “This Guy’s In Love With You” – any and all of these indelible songs could be part of the Stryker sets this week, with special guest Warren Wolf on vibes.
