The owner of the legendary Minton’s Playhouse Raphael Baccus has brought on Grammy nominated band leader JC Hopkins to resume the programming

Grammy nominated band leader JC Hopkins has resumed the programming for the most legendary supper club in the history of jazz: Minton’s Playhouse- Harlem birthplace of bebop. Hopkins’ Biggish Band is at the nucleus of the programming with a weekly Saturday residency that features a ten piece band and an array of stunning up and coming vocalists including Vanisha-Arleen Gould, Joy Hanson, Shawn Whitehorn and Nico Sarbanes. The Biggish Band, whose sound merges Mingus with Billy May, has been fertile ground for great talent such as the likes of Norah Jones, Jazzmeia Horn, Madeleine Peyroux and Brianna Thomas who all have been featured with regularity in the group. 

 

Friday nights is the Jazz Diva Series. Stunning vocalists create ambiance while innovatively interpreting the great American Songbook. Concluding the Sunday series, The Piano Speaks Theo Hill hosts Bertha Hope and Anthony Wonsey and in October the formidable 17 piece big band of Jason Marshall will be the feature Sunday act.

October 18th: Lezlie Harrison

Lezlie Harrison is her own personal renaissance. Her constant state of evolution and growth brings with it, gifts for those those paying attention. As a vocalist both bold and subtle, her vulnerability attends to the fragile matters of our collective human affairs while her optimistic momentum inspires us to rise above any tribulation to rejoice. Be it Jazz, Blues, Gospel, Soul, The American Song Form, original compositions or any song in ANY form, Ms. Harrison will imbue it her distinctive stamp and make a very personal delivery.

 

October 25th: Joy Hanson

Truly remarkable, one of the most evocative jazz vocalists of our time. Joy Hanson has her own sound though she can evoke memories of Sarah and Ella. She is a truly powerful and elegant performer and her presence on the Minton’s stage is perfection.

At Minton’s, you’re part of the choir.

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.

The term “mash-up” has become quite the buzz word in contemporary music, but the all-time champion of the art of mashing upwards is Sharón Clark, not least because she’s an even better singer than she is a masher-upper. Miss Clark’s specialties is mixing the genres and generations, offering a seamless mix of jazz and soul even while balancing the traditional standards of the Great American Songbook with more contemporary material in a way that’s thoughtful and incisive. In terms of her voice, she’s most frequently compared to the legendary Sarah Vaughan, and her most recent album is Do it Again — My Tribute to Shirley Horn, but make no mistake, she has a soul and highly musical style all her own.

vocalist Sharon Clark, pianist Chris Grasso (musical director), bassist Zack Pride, drummer Lenny Robinson.

Nicolas King is the living embodiment of all of those great multi-talented singer-entertainer-musician-comics razzle-dazzlers of the mid-20th century, such as Sammy Davis, Jr., Mickey Rooney, Buddy Rich, and, especially, the legendary Mel Torme. Like all of them, he is a compact dynamo, a whirlwind of a performer who balances incredible excitement and high energy with restraint and nuance, and like his pint-sized forebears, he gets the crowd in his pocket within the first 30 seconds of walking out on stage and keeps them there for the rest of the night. Working with one of the major jazz accompanists of all time, the legendary Mike Renzi (the greatest of Mel Torme’s pianists, not to mention serving in the same capacity for Miss Peggy Lee, Lena Horne, and even Sinatra), he never fails to deliver the goods. Still in his twenties, Mr. King has been a star ever since his kindergarten days as a toddler actor in TV commercials and is easily the youngest performer to have his show biz bonafides established by consistent appearances on the old Jerry Lewis Telethon – maybe that’s why, after all these years, I still get the urge to see him in action at least once every September.

Returning to Birdland for the fifth time, powerhouse singer Mafalda Minnozzi will preview her upcoming CD “SENSORIAL” in celebration of the new project and the upcoming November Italian tour with an exclusive NY debut of the concert “Portraits in Bossa & Jazz”.

Mafalda, although Italian, has an over 20 year solid touring and recording career in Brazil marked by many solo albums and collaborations with Milton Nascimento, Guinga, Leny Andrade, Paulo Moura, Martinho Da Vila, Toquinho, Andre Mehmari and many others. After performing at Jazz festivals in Italy, Brazil, Peru, Paraguay and Portugal, her trajectory from Rome to Rio has brought her to New York with an all star band from her new recording, revisiting the magical fusion of Bossa and jazz via some unique arrangements built around her spirited improvisations.From Birdland they go on to do a November Italian tour at Jazz festivals in Rome, Milano, Padova, Udine and San Severino

Although the CD was not originally planned to be a tribute to Joao Gilberto, a large part of the repertoire and much of the musical language on the CD comes from Mafalda’s intimate coexistence with the Bossa language and Ricci’s work with Dom Um Romao, Edison Machado and Astrud and Bebel Gilberto among others.

As much as Joao is always present in the language, the Jobim laden repertoire also visits the creativity of post Bossa generation composers Toninho Horta, Filo Machado and Chico Buarque with a more fiery style defined by Mafalda’s charismatic stage presence, vocal range and versatile timbral palette, blurring the line between singer and improviser and earning her a prestigious “Targa Tenco” nomination by the Italian press and a spot among the 10 best jazz vocalists readers poll in Italy’s JAZZIT magazine 2 years in a row.

“Mafalda Minnozzi, is an extraordinary performer. She dominates the stage with her fascinating scenic presence and her powerful and flexible voice, rich in a thousand nuances” – Gerlando Gatto (journalist, music critic and author of”L’Altra Metà del Jazz”)
“Thanks to her experiences with jazz music in Brazil and Italy, both countries influence her way of singing … each interpretation is deep and sensitive. This is jazz for falling in love, the free flight of a bird in a great sky. “- Debbie Burke (blogger and jazz critic)

“She has a beautiful conception of each song and is a wonderful performer. I am fascinated by her way of improvising and interacting” – Gene Bertoncini (legendary NY jazz guitarist)
“…overflowing with interpretative choices, communicative appeal and strong artistic personality, the singer expertly handles the dynamics and projection with grace and deep emotional impact, suggesting a sort of imaginary bridge connecting Italy, the United States and Brazil…”– Stefano Dentice: Italian Jazz Critic at “ITALIAINJAZZ”

“…delivered the hottest show of the night… the Italian singer Mafalda Minnozzi and American guitarist Paul Ricci literally raised the audience with jazzy versions of classics.”– Carlos Calado: Brazilian Jazz author and critic at “FOLHA de S.PAULO”.

“… there were some revelations, for example the eMPathia duo composed of Paul Ricci and Mafalda Minnozzi… Fantastic!”– Humphrey Inzillo: Argentine Jazz critic and author at “LA NACION”.

Watch Accidental Orchestra Perform Yesod

shem.gif

Michael Moss’ Accidental Orchestra performs the second of three installments of Qabbala::Entanglement on the autumnal equinox, September 20, 2019. Qabbala::Entanglement is a twelve movement suite inspired by Michael Moss’s long study of Eastern mythology, physics, and Jungian analytic psychology. Using improvisation over an extended compositional structure Moss uses each of the 12 movements to express a sephira or “limb” of the Tree of Life. 
 
The Accidental Orchestra is a cross between a big band and an orchestra. It is jazz from the 21st century standing on and extending the tradition.  “Moss’ astute penchant for melding the outside parameters of jazz with imaginative compositions and a wide-ranging improvisational platform delivers the knockout punch (Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz, June 7, 2018).”
 
The Accidental Orchestra is comprised of a pool of the most exciting improvising artists on the New York scene: Jason Kao Hwang, Rosi Hertlein, Melanie Dyer, Leonor Falcon, Carol Buck, Lenny Mims, Brian Groder, Waldron Mahdi Ricks, Libby Schwartz, Peter Zummo, Steve Swell, JD Parran, Elliot Levin, Michael Lytle, Ras Moshe Burnett, Dave Sewelson, Steve Cohn, Dom Minasi, Chien Chien Lu, Ken Filiano, Bob Meyer, Warren Smith, Michael Wimberly.
 
Michael Moss released the Accidental Orchestra’s first cd, HELIX, in 2018 on 4th Stream Records with two compositions–The Old One and C# or Bb. HELIX had the honor of being voted one of the best albums of 2018 by Avant Music News, received enthusiastic world-wide reviews which may be found at https://m2-theory.com/helix-reviews and can be downloaded at Hearnow.    
 
YouTube: QABBALA::ENTANGLEMENT:  Yesod
Vimeo:  HELIX:  C# or Bb

 

 

QABALLAH::ENTANGLEMENT is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC). LMCC empowers artists by providing them with networks, resources, and support, to create vibrant, sustainable communities in Manhattan and beyond.

Japanese Jazz Singer Emi Takada’s Why Did I Choose You
Features Her Gentle Voice And Deep Understanding Of Timeless Lyrics On Ten Standards.

 
Tributes to Jon Hendricks and composer Michael Leonard along with guest appearances by singer
Marion Cowings are among the highlights of her second album.

 
Why Did I Choose You follows up on the success of Emil Takada’s previous recording I’m All Smiles. She sings ten classic songs with understated feeling and sensitivity while joined by a swinging quartet comprised of pianist Michael Kanan, guitarist Satoshi Inoue, bassist Neal Miner, and drummer Dwayne “Cook” Broadnax.
 
Emi Takada puts plenty of feeling into her interpretations, picks great songs, swings no matter what the tempo, and always displays sincerity while digging deep into the meaning behind the lyrics.
 
Inspired by the concise and tasteful solos of pianist Kanan and guitarist Inoue, Ms. Takada performs such numbers as “It Might As Well Be Spring,” “All The Things You Are” (starting with its rarely-heard verse), a dreamy jazz waltz version of “I’m In The Mood For Love,” and heartfelt renditions of “You Must Believe In Spring” and “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye.”
 
Her mentor, singer Marion Cowings, guests on a few numbers including a combination of “Blue Skies” and “In Walked Bud” which features the two vocalists joyfully interacting, as well as “Miagete Goran Yoru No Hoshi Wo (Look Up At The Night Stars),” a very important song loved by all Japanese people. Emi Takada pays tribute to Cowings’ mentor Jon Hendricks on “No More Blues” (which has Hendricks’ English lyrics) and to composer Michael Leonard (whose “I’m All Smiles” was the title track of her previous album) on a slow and emotional “Why Did I Choose You.” And to display her versatility, the singer also performs a bluesy “Story Weather” and an uptempo “Lover Come Back To Me.” 
 
Emi Takada was born in Sapporo, Japan. She began singing when she was ten in the Boys and Girls Choral Group and sang classical music while growing up. She first visited the United States in 1997 where she joined the Houston Symphony Chorus as a soprano. Back in Japan, she worked steadily in a variety of settings and became very interested in jazz. In 2010 she came to New York to study with Marion Cowings, starting her career as a jazz singer and appearing in New York clubs.
 
Emi was based in Houston, Texas during much of 2011-16 where she performed with pianist Bob Henschen, but also had a monthly gig in NYC during 2015-16 and sang in Tokyo (with guitarist Satoshi Inoue) and Sapporo.  In 2014 she released her first recording I’m All Smiles which received positive and enthusiastic reviews.
 
Emi Takada moved to Tokyo in 2017 but visits and performs regularly in New York where she recorded Why Did I Choose You? Upcoming in September, she will be making her debut at NYC’s Birdland to celebrate the release of her memorable new album.

InterSchool Orchestras of New York
Presents Its Gala Celebration: 

A TRIBUTE TO HOWARD JOHNSON
Featuring
Taj Mahal, Gravity, The Levon Helm horns,
the Beartones, and
Students of InterSchool Orchestras of New York

September 18, 2019 7:30 pm

InterSchool Orchestras of New York (ISO) is proud to announce its 2019-2020 gala celebration, A Tribute to Howard Johnson, at Kaufman Music Center’s Merkin Hall, September 18, 2019 at 7:30 pm. The special event will honor the musical legend, who, in his five-decade career, has played alongside luminaries in multiple genres and pioneered the voice of the tuba in jazz. The event will also feature the talents of two-time Grammy-winning musician Taj Mahal and students of ISO. All proceeds from the event will support financial aid and scholarships for ISO students.
 
“ISO’s mission — to serve all young musicians who want to participate, regardless of ability to pay — is deeply rooted in a long-standing commitment to the children of New York City,” said Karen Geer, executive director of ISO. “We are thrilled to pay tribute to Howard Johnson as a distinguished member of the city’s vibrant musical legacy. His tremendous career and innovations in music are a testament to the creativity, passion, and perseverance our students find through playing in an orchestra and carry with them throughout their lives.”
 
Gala honoree and performer Howard Johnson stated, “I am honored to be recognized by ISO for my contributions to the music community. Being a musician has opened so many doors in my life, and I am grateful for the opportunity to make that possible for a new generation of players. Because of their time in the orchestra, the talented students of ISO will go on to be lifelong supporters of the arts, no matter their career path. The funds raised as part of this event will help make that vision possible.”
 
A Tribute to Howard Johnson will raise funds to support scholarships and financial aid for ISO students. As a critical element of ISO’s mission to nurture young musicians, no child has ever been turned away because of financial need; 80% of ISO students receive some form of financial assistance, and the organization awards nearly $250,000 in scholarships each year.
 
Sponsorships for the gala start at $2,500 and include dinner and an evening of performances by Taj Mahal, Gravity, the Levon Helm horns, the Beartones, and members of the ISO Symphony.  For more information, visit isorch.org or call (212) 410-0370.  Tickets will be sold closer to the date of the event.
 
Howard Johnson is a legendary performer and mentor to a generation of African-American musicians. Over the past half century, Johnson has appeared on hundreds of albums playing tuba, baritone saxophone, bass clarinet, electric bass and other instruments with the giants of many genres. New York Times critic Nate Chinen credits Johnson as “the figure most responsible for the tuba’s current status as a full-fledged jazz voice.” Arriving in New York in the early ’60s, Johnson quickly gained notoriety as a sideman, recording and performing with Duke Ellington, Quincy Jones, Buddy Rich, Chick Corea, John Lennon, Paul Simon, and eventually hundreds of others. As a tubist, Johnson was the first to demand prominent solo roles for the instrument in jazz and was heavily involved in the design and manufacture of a specialist tuba for jazz playing. In 1975, Johnson was appointed the inaugural bandleader of The Saturday Night Live Band. He was also a long-time muse to innovators such as Charles Mingus, Gil Evans, Carla Bley, and George Gruntz, who created music to showcase the multi-instrumentalist’s abilities, and inspired him in his life-long quest to expand the range and repertoire of the less familiar instruments in jazz and popular music. 
 
Sparking interest in music, especially in young people, has always been of paramount importance to Howard Johnson. It’s his life’s mission, likely fueled by his own passion for the art that first flared in junior high school. As a youngster, he spent every free minute in the band room, investigating the contents of the mysterious and intriguingly shaped instrument cases. He eventually tried his hand at many of the instruments he first encountered there, an opportunity to explore not afforded to many 21stcentury students, as arts programs in schools dwindle.
 
Supporting this voyage to musical discovery—and the self-discovery inherent in musical expression—is a mission dear to the heart of this legendary musician. Howard Johnson notes that while many people in the world have knowledge and talent, each individual has something unique and important to contribute, if given a chance: “What you give of yourself, there’s nothing that can beat that,” he declares.
 
Founded in 1972, the InterSchool Orchestras of New York creates opportunities for school-aged children in New York City to make music together through a tiered system of four orchestras, serving beginners to pre-conservatory-level players. ISO provides a nurturing environment where all children can realize their personal best, achieve high artistic standards, and share their music with the community. Under the leadership of executive director Karen Geer, ISO serves nearly 300 students from diverse backgrounds living in each of the five boroughs and surrounding areas. Generous financial aid and scholarships ensure that every child can participate. 
 
In its distinguished 47-year history, ISO has collaborated with artists and ensembles including James Earl Jones, David Amram, Raúl Jaurena, Canadian Brass, and Dance Theatre of Harlem, and on stages including Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the United Nations. Additionally, ISO has been featured on WNET’s (PBS) NYC-ARTS; participated in the Unity Youth Symphony as part of the HBO documentary Landfill Harmonic; and is a League of American Orchestras award winner as well as a member of the Channel 13 Hall of Fame.
 
ISO is supported in part by funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts.

Low Ridin’ – the debut CD of Chris Washburne & The SYOTOS Band for ZOHO showcases Latin Jazz instrumental versions of 1960s and 70s Classic Rock songs – called Acid Mambo by its musicians.  Afro-Latin jazz on a psychedelic trip!  Zeppelin, Hendrix, the Doors meet Tito Puente! The band’s name “SYOTOS” is a word coined by Chris Washburne in 1992, created as an acronym for “See You On The Other Side” – a term which has subsequently been widely used as military jargon among computer gamers.

shem.gif
“SYOTOS plays with fire and erudition!”  
The New York Times 
    
S.Y.O.T.O.S. was founded in 1992 by trombonist Chris and features some of the best Latin jazz players in New York City.  SYOTOS pushes the genre of Latin Jazz into uncharted waters with a postmodern mix that embraces dissonance, weaving contemporary uptempo beats with a driving sound. This boundary-breaking band exemplifies Latin jazz with a global reach, combining Afro-Cuban, funk, jazz, gospel, and contemporary classical music – “think Tito Puente meets James Brown meets Charles Ives!” TimeOut New York calls the group “a Latin jazz institution” as they held the longest running Latin jazz gig in New York, performing weekly for 20 years straight.  The band’s members are alumni from the bands of Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, and Ray Barretto and they continue with the foundations inherited by those Latin music greats, pushing the genre in the 21st century.

“Chris Washburne is a young talent most deserving wider recognition.”- Howard Mandel, Jazz Critic for Downbeat and Village Voice

You can say what you like about the 1980s, which was never my favorite decade of pop music until it dawned on me that that this was the period in which the Gipsy Kings conquered the world – and it’s remained theirs ever since. Like the late Bob Marley and the Wailers, they are that great rarity, an authentic world music act that has achieved the extreme mass-marketability of a pop music act, and sustained it for over 30 years. Born of authentic Romany musical traditions and a combination of French and Spanish roots, the Gipsys embrace a wide range of musical styles and Pan-Global rhythms, including flamenco, salsas, rhumbas, pasodobles, and tangos. They’re equally loved for their big original hits, like “ “Bamboléo” as well as their interpretations of classic pop songs well known in the USA, like the Italian “Volare,” the French “My Way” (as a Sinatra fan, I much prefer their version, titled “A Mi Manera”) and “Hotel California,” which, again, is vastly preferable to the original by the Eagles. Wear something comfortable when you come to the Beacon on Saturday or to NJPAC on Sunday, I suspect you’re going to be on your feet and cheering and dancing most of the night.

Grammy nominated band leader JC Hopkins has resumed the programming for the most legendary supper club in the history of jazz: Minton’s Playhouse- Harlem birthplace of bebop. Hopkins’ Biggish Band is at the nucleus of the programming with a weekly Saturday residency that features a ten piece band and an array of stunning up and coming vocalists including Vanisha-Arleen Gould, Joy Hanson, Shawn Whitehorn and Nico Sarbanes. The Biggish Band, whose sound merges Mingus with Billy May, has been fertile ground for great talent such as the likes of Norah Jones, Jazzmeia Horn, Madeleine Peyroux and Brianna Thomas who all have been featured with regularity in the group. Friday nights is the Jazz Diva Series. Stunning vocalists create ambiance while innovatively interpreting the great American Songbook. Sundays in October features the formidable 17 piece big band of Jason Marshall.

JC Hopkins Biggish Band featuring Joy Hanson, Shawn Whitehorn, Vanisha-Arleen Gould and Nico Sarbanes

Fridays in October- Jazz Diva Series:

October 4th: Charles Turner
One of the most outstanding jazz male vocalists on the scene today. Charles Turner swings like mad but also moves audiences with the way he handles a ballad. He draws from the songbook but also has a wealth of beautiful original material. Not to be missed!

October 11th: Blues Friday with Solomon Hicks
Solomon Hicks is the most stellar blues and jazz guitarist and vocalist on the scene today. His skills as a soloist, whether playing jazz or the blues is a remarkable thing to see and to hear. Also a gifted vocalist he has moved audiences all of the world- not bad for such a young man!

October 18th: Lezlie Harrison
Lezlie Harrison is her own personal renaissance. Her constant state of evolution and growth brings with it, gifts for those those paying attention. As a vocalist both bold and subtle, her vulnerability attends to the fragile matters of our collective human affairs while her optimistic momentum inspires us to rise above any tribulation to rejoice. Be it Jazz, Blues, Gospel, Soul, The American Song Form, original compositions or any song in ANY form, Ms. Harrison will imbue it her distinctive stamp and make a very personal delivery.

October 25th: Joy Hanson
Truly remarkable, one of the most evocative jazz vocalists of our time. Joy Hanson has her own sound though she can evoke memories of Sarah and Ella. She is a truly powerful and elegant performer and her presence on the Minton’s stage is perfection.

Sundays in October 6,13, 20 and 27
Jason Marshall Big Band

Jason Marshall is a highly sought after and established fixture on the global music landscape. His work for large ensemble can be heard most regularly performed by his critically acclaimed orchestra, the Jason Marshall Big Band.   A rare specimen even among the highly competitive New York City music scene, the Washington D.C. born saxophonist can be seen playing soul music with Aretha Franklin, Latin jazz with Arturo O’Farrill, pop with Desi Di Lauro, avant garde jazz with the Charlie Mingus Big Band, and rock music with the Young Presidents. Also a highly sought after composer and arranger, Mr. Marshall wrote and arranged the modern day classic “Miss Garvey, Miss Garvey!!” which was nominated for a Grammy in 2009.  He has also written and arranged music for the Taipei Jazz Orchestra and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra.

When My Fair Lady was enjoying its hit run on Broadway after opening in 1956, Shelley Manne & His Friends’ seminal album, Modern Jazz Performances of My Fair Lady, became a cultural touchstone as the then bestselling jazz album of all time. Since then, such jazz luminaries as Quincy Jones, Nat King Cole, Oscar Peterson, Chet Baker, Billy Taylor, among many others, have presented their unique takes on the Lerner & Loewe catalogue – all the way through Dick Hyman and Ruby Braff’s collection in 1989.

Thirty years later, in that same grand tradition, these two new collections present pioneering interpretations of songs not only from household-name shows like My Fair Lady, Camelot and Brigadoon, but also from less frequently heard Lerner & Loewe properties like The Day Before Spring.
 

Hyman and Peplowski’s Counterpoint Lerner & Loewe displays the incomparable improvisational connection between these two world-renowned artists in addition to a ground-breaking contrapuntal style – presenting well-loved melodies in unexpected and exhilarating ways. For instance, according to Ken, by giving “a classical kind of setting with these ominous chords underneath the melody” to My Fair Lady’s famously ardent “On the Street Where You Live,” the song takes on an almost solemn sound instead of its customary love-at-first-sight ebullience. Camelot’s usually haunting “Follow Me” gets a rhythmic bounce. Its lush romantic ballad “If Ever I Would Leave You” becomes stunningly simple. And the sweet, gentle melody of “Waitin’ for My Dearie” from Brigadoon is, instead, jaunty with a modern syncopation.

Hyman says of his musical relationship with Peplowski: “We’ve been working on contrapuntal playing for some years now. Getting to unexpected territory is one of the pleasures of our collaboration: we listen to each other and we trust each other. Loewe’s music is very melodic, but it is our jazzman’s tradition to fill up the harmony, and to make the whole thing a little more adventurous. Sometimes we go off on strange tangents and kind of dare the other fellow to understand what we’re doing or create something in contrast, just to make something come out in ways we didn’t expect.”

DICK HYMAN, who was born in 1927 and graduated from Columbia University in 1948, has worked as a pianist, organist, arranger, music director and composer throughout a long and busy musical career that got underway in the early 1950s. His versatility in all of these areas has resulted in film scores, orchestral compositions, concert appearances and well over 100 albums recorded under his own name. While developing a masterful facility for improvisation in his own

piano style, Hyman has also investigated ragtime and the earliest periods of jazz and researched and recorded the piano music of Scott Joplin, Jelly Roll Morton, James P. Johnson, Eubie Blake and Fats Waller. Other solo recordings include the music of Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers and Duke Ellington.
 

Hyman’s early club engagements in New York included Café Society, playing with Tony Scott’s Quartet; Bop City with the Red Norvo Sextet; and various 52nd Street clubs with Sol Yaged and others. He began his recording and broadcasting career with Alvy West’s Little Band. He joined the NBC staff orchestra for five years in the 1950s, performed with Eddie Safranski’s morning radio show in addition to Milt DeLugg’s orchestra on the Morey Amsterdam Show, and was an organist on soap operas and game shows.
 

He became a freelance pianist, organist, arranger, composer, music director for many radio, television, and Broadway shows, for example, acting as music director for Arthur Godfrey for three years, as organist on the TV program “Beat the Clock” for five years and as arranger and orchestrator of the Broadway musical Sugar Babies. He served as music director for such television programs as Benny Goodman’s final appearance (on PBS) and for “In Performance at the White House.” Under contract to MGM Records, his hit recording of “Mack the Knife” from The Threepenny Opera was followed by many albums. He moved to Command Records, where his recording of “The Minotaur” on the Moog synthesizer landed on the Billboard charts in 1969.

Hyman’s original movie scores include Moonstruck starring Cher as well as many films for Woody Allen, including The Purple Rose of Cairo, Bullets Over Broadway and Stardust Memories. He also composed many commercials for Edel Music, and dance scores for Twyla Tharp, the Cleveland Ballet and others.

He has also been the arranger/music director/soloist for, among others, Count Basie, the Mills Brothers, Kay Starr, Margaret Whiting, Tony Bennett, Cozy Cole, Enoch Light, Ethel Ennis, Leonard Feather, Gail Garnett, Urbie Green, Roy Hamilton, Al Hirt, Bill Hayes, Jonah Jones, J.J. Johnson, Jessye Norman, Maxine Sullivan, Flip Phillips, Robert White, Doc Severinsen, Sandy Stewart, the Kirby Stone Four, Sam “The Man” Taylor and Barry Manilow. He was a frequent

guest with Jim Cullum’s Riverwalk Band in San Antonio and a soloist on Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion” and accompanied Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie during their unique television appearance in 1951.

He served as pianist and organist for recordings by The Drifters, Ivory Joe Hunter, LaVern Baker, Pearl Bailey, Al Caiola, Tony Mottola, The Ray Charles Singers, Perry Como, The Four Lads, Georgia Gibbs, The Harmonicats, Neal Hefti, Billie Holiday, Quincy Jones, Joni James, Andre Kostelanetz, Johnny Mathis, Mitch Miller, Jane Morgan, Louis Prima, Perez Prado, Kate Smith, Joe Venuti, Bill Watrous and others. In 1975, he led the New York Jazz Repertory Company in a concert of the music of Louis Armstrong at Carnegie Hall, produced by George Wein. Recordings on Atlantic Records followed, as well as tours of Europe and numerous U.S. concerts. Duets and collaborations include recent work with, among others, Derek Smith, Ruby Braff and John Sheridan.

He is a frequent soloist for concerts with conductor Yaacov Bergman. Mr. Hyman’s concert compositions include two piano concerti, a clarinet concerto for Ken Peplowski, various chamber music pieces and many pieces for piano. He has been heard in “Three-Piano Crossover” with the late Marian McPartland and Ruth Laredo and in numerous pops concerts. He served as artistic director of the acclaimed Jazz in July series at New York’s 92nd Street Y for twenty years.

Hyman’s box set Century of Jazz Piano is a historical survey comprising 121 audio performances plus a disc of DVD instruction. Mr. Hyman has also had a prolific career in New York as a studio musician and has won seven “Most Valuable Player” awards from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. He received an Emmy for his original score for the daytime drama “Sunshine’s on the Way” and another for musical direction of a PBS special on Eubie Blake. He is

a member of the Jazz Hall of Fame of the Rutgers Institute and the New Jersey Jazz Society. In 2017, Mr. Hyman received the Jazz Master Award from the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as an honorary doctorate from the Julliard School of Music.
 

KEN PEPLOWSKI played his first professional engagement while still in elementary school in Cleveland, Ohio. He and his trumpet-playing brother Ted made many local radio and TV appearances and played for Polish dances and weddings virtually every weekend all through high-school. By the time Ken was in his early teens, he was experimenting with jazz by playing in the school “stage” bands and also jamming with many of the local jazz musicians.

After a year of college, Ken joined the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra under the direction of Buddy Morrow. Peplowski met Sonny Stitt while on the road with the Dorsey band and studied with him. In 1980, Ken moved to New York City and was soon playing in all kinds of settings, from traditional to avant-garde jazz. In 1984, Benny Goodman came out of retirement and put together a new band, hiring Ken on tenor saxophone. Peplowski signed with Concord Records and recorded close to 20 albums as a leader, including The Natural Touch in 1992 which won “Best Jazz Record of the Year” from the Prises Deutschen Schallplatten Kritiken, and The Other Portrait, recorded in Sofia, Bulgaria with the Bulgarian National Symphony, and highlighting Ken’s classical side. He also recorded two records on the Nagel Heyer label, Lost in the Stars and Easy To Remember, the latter featuring Bobby Short on his last recording. He has performed in venues from small clubs to the Hollywood Bowl, headlined in Las Vegas, the Newport Jazz Festival, pops concerts, European festivals and clubs, played at home in New York, and has done everything from playing on the soundtracks to Woody Allen movies to guest soloing on records including for Marianne Faithfull and Cuban vocalist Isaac Delgado to acting as music director for interactive French and Italian cookbooks (“Menus And Music”). The list of musicians with whom Ken has collaborated includes Mel Tormé, Leon Redbone, Charlie Byrd, Peggy Lee, George Shearing, Madonna, Hank Jones, Dave Frishberg, Rosemary Clooney, Tom Harrell, James Moody, Cedar Walton, Houston Person, Steve Allen, Bill Charlap and Erich Kunzel. Ken is currently artistic director of the Sarasota Jazz Festival, the Newport Beach Jazz Party and the Newport, Oregon Jazz Festival. His latest album is Amizade, a duo recording with Brazilian guitarist Diego Figuereido, also on Arbors Records.

 

FREDERICK LOEWE (1901—1988) composed the scores for some of the American theater’s most memorable musicals, including My Fair Lady, Camelot, Brigadoon, Paint Your Wagon and Gigi, all written with his lyricist-partner Alan Jay Lerner. A musical prodigy by age four, Fritz Loewe was born in Berlin to Austrian parents. His father was a renowned tenor who originated the role of Prince Danilo in The Merry Widow in 1906. Raised in the Viennese operetta tradition, Loewe studied in Berlin with famous pianist-composers Ferruccio Busoni and Eugen d’Albert and composer Emil von Rezniek. At 13, he was the youngest piano soloist ever to play with the Berlin Philharmonic and the sheet music for “Katrina,” a popular song Loewe wrote when he was 15, eventually sold over one million copies. In 1924, after touring the United States with his father, Loewe chose to stay in America intending to become a concert pianist and write for Broadway.

Instead, for the next decade, Loewe worked at a variety of odd jobs, including cattle punching, gold prospecting and prize fighting, as well as playing piano in clubs and in movie theaters accompanying silent films. During the 1930s, he contributed music to a number of Broadway revues and shows, none of which met with much success. In 1942, Loewe approached Lerner at the Lambs Club in New York to talk about collaborating on a show, and thus began one of Broadway’s most extraordinary and productive partnerships. Their first Broadway venture, What’s Up?, opened on Broadway in 1943 and ran for only 63 performances. It was followed two years later by The Day Before Spring, a moderate success which ran for 167 performances. In 1947, Lerner and Loewe had their first Broadway hit, Brigadoon, followed in 1951 by a second hit with Paint Your Wagon, which included such songs as “They Call the Wind Maria,” “I Talk to the Trees,” “Another Autumn” and “Wand’rin’ Star.” Both featured choreography by the legendary Agnes DeMille.

In 1956, My Fair Lady, starring Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews, opened on Broadway to universal acclaim. Often called “the perfect musical,” the show ran for 2,717 performances and the cast album sold more than five million copies. Their 1958 film musical, Gigi, won nine Academy Awards and in 1960 came their last great success, Camelot, with Richard Burton and Julie Andrews. In 1974, Lerner lured Loewe out of retirement to work on their last venture together: the film version of Antoine de St Exupéry’s The Little Prince. Brigadoon was presented in an all-star concert production at New York’s City Center in 2017 and an acclaimed Broadway revival of My Fair Lady just concluded a triumphant run at Lincoln Center Theater and is headed for a national tour.

ARBORS RECORDS was founded in 1989 by Rachel and Mat Domber (1928–2012) with the goal of recording and preserving classic styles of jazz. Though by profession a lawyer in New York with real estate interests in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Florida, Mat was, at heart, an ardent jazz fan, record collector and listener, beginning with his visits to Nick’s in Greenwich Village as a pre-teen. Arbors has, since the time of its first release, issued almost 450 CDs, featuring such artists as Bucky Pizzarelli, Dave Frishberg, Nicki Parrott, Ruby Braff, Bob Wilber, Harry Allen, Dan Barrett, Warren Vache, Bob Haggart, Rebecca Kilgore, Johnny Varro, George Masso, Bobby Gordon and Jacob Fischer, to name only a few. And while the label may have started with Dixieland, Arbors — now run by Mat’s widow and fellow jazz enthusiast and advocate Rachel Domber — currently embraces traditional, contemporary and classic jazz and the swing styles of the 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond. And, regardless of the era, all of its recordings have in common a reverence for talent and a love of melody, improvisation and swing. Arbors sponsors the Suncoas Jazz Classic in Clearwater Beach, FL.

In the aftermath of the long-running, Tony-winning Jersey Boys, all of a sudden, there’s an abundance of talented, trained Broadway-centric singers out there who are suddenly well-versed in the elusive intricacies of that much-abused musical form known as doo-wop. First, you start with quintet of former Jersey Boys cast members – from the myriad of productions, the original Broadway cast and replacements, the road companies and regional productions, what have you. Then, you build what amounts to a “jukebox musical” but without the musical theater part. (And thus, thankfully, without dialog like “It used to be about the music, man!”) In other words, you just have the actual music being performed by an inspired group of young tenors, baritones and bassos, who take the best hits of the 1950s and the doo-wop era (which really reaches a climax and all-time apogee with Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons) and sing the heck out of it. (The heck, I say!) The Doo Wop project, backed by the Motortown Band, does for the best pop music of the era – especially the Imperials, the Penguins, the Flamingos (and other ornithological ensembles) roughly what the Fab Faux does for The Beatles, meaning that they don’t treat it like a nostalgia act, or a wedding / cover band, they sing it as if it was music – and quintessential American pop music at that.

Watch Accidental Orchestra Perform Yesod

shem.gif

Michael Moss’ Accidental Orchestra performs the second of three installments of Qabbala::Entanglement on the autumnal equinox, September 20, 2019. Qabbala::Entanglement is a twelve movement suite inspired by Michael Moss’s long study of Eastern mythology, physics, and Jungian analytic psychology. Using improvisation over an extended compositional structure Moss uses each of the 12 movements to express a sephira or “limb” of the Tree of Life. 
 
The Accidental Orchestra is a cross between a big band and an orchestra. It is jazz from the 21st century standing on and extending the tradition.  “Moss’ astute penchant for melding the outside parameters of jazz with imaginative compositions and a wide-ranging improvisational platform delivers the knockout punch (Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz, June 7, 2018).”
 
The Accidental Orchestra is comprised of a pool of the most exciting improvising artists on the New York scene: Jason Kao Hwang, Rosi Hertlein, Melanie Dyer, Leonor Falcon, Carol Buck, Lenny Mims, Brian Groder, Waldron Mahdi Ricks, Libby Schwartz, Peter Zummo, Steve Swell, JD Parran, Elliot Levin, Michael Lytle, Ras Moshe Burnett, Dave Sewelson, Steve Cohn, Dom Minasi, Chien Chien Lu, Ken Filiano, Bob Meyer, Warren Smith, Michael Wimberly.
 
Michael Moss released the Accidental Orchestra’s first cd, HELIX, in 2018 on 4th Stream Records with two compositions–The Old One and C# or Bb. HELIX had the honor of being voted one of the best albums of 2018 by Avant Music News, received enthusiastic world-wide reviews which may be found at https://m2-theory.com/helix-reviews and can be downloaded at Hearnow.    
 
YouTube: QABBALA::ENTANGLEMENT:  Yesod
Vimeo:  HELIX:  C# or Bb

 

 

QABALLAH::ENTANGLEMENT is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC). LMCC empowers artists by providing them with networks, resources, and support, to create vibrant, sustainable communities in Manhattan and beyond.

Award-Winning Australian Jazz And Blues Singer
Jessie Gordon To Make New York Debut

 

Jessie Gordon will perform at The Cutting Room on Monday 30th September 2019 at 7pm

Jessie Gordon is a 15 time Fringe World Music and Cabaret award winning singer, musician and dancer with a passion for jazz, blues and roots music. Set to make her New York and US stage debut at The Cutting Room, Jessie has been singing since she was 15 years old, has fronted everything from jazz duos to big bands, and has even appeared solo with nothing but a loop pedal. She has toured extensively through Europe, Asia and Australia, and has been received with mass critical acclaim.

This talented and versatile performer knows how to build rapport with a crowd, an ability that has earned her a solid reputation and loyal following internationally. No stranger to the darker side of jazz, Jessie combines her love of blues, swing and early jazz music in a show not to be missed. There are songs for the swooning moonshiners, those inclined to wine, those frisky for whisky and some odes to our favourite friends, those tenders of the bar. In the dark, dingy corners and smoky recesses of the Golden Era of Swing, there are songs for every appetite, beautiful harmonies for your soul and heart aching melodies to ease your troubles.

Jessie Gordon has released five albums, including her 2018 album of original songs, entitled “A Work of Friction”. This year’s release, “Best Friends” is a compilation of jazz and original acoustic music recorded with long-time collaborator Mark Turner.
 
“Gordon’s vocals are exquisite, ranging from breathy and soft to hearty and raspy, changing with each style of song. Her musical expertise, rhythm and timing are mesmerising.” 
– Laura Keenan, Fringe Feed

“Gordon has once again shown how immensely talented she really is, her understanding of Jazz in all its forms, her creativity and multi faceted ability to make music with a variety of instruments, or no instruments, a powerful and exquisite voice with a range that is unmatched, and an ability to command the crowd’s attention and participation.” 
– Amanda Lancaster, Fourth Wall Media

Feinstein’s / 54 Below
254 West 54th St
Thursday, September 12

shem.gif

If I recommend this show, you can rest assured that it’s worth catching, since my cynicism re higher education is well known (thank you Malcolm Gladwell) and I don’t have anything like a horse in this race. (In fact, I don’t know whom to root for; in this respect, the contest of Harvard vs. Yale strikes me overall as oddly reminiscent of the Iran-Iraq war.) However, I have seen at least two of the previous four evenings of this competition, and in spite of my general apathy regarding the overall concept, I’ve found it to be an enjoyable and stimulating evening of song, artfully presented by those two highly-sagacious hosts Tom Toce and Victoria Ordin. Considering that Leonard Bernstein and Alan Jay Lerner both went to Harvard and Cole Porter famously attended Yale, maybe there’s something to this Ivy League jazz after all.

The New York based tenor saxophonist Ray Blue, who has a deep tone and a melodic style, is featured on WORK, a set of accessible yet quietly creative music. The program mixes together three of his originals with surprising versions of standards and lesser known but superior jazz songs. He and Randy Klein, head of Jazzheads Music Group, worked diligently to achieve the appealing Old School feel and sound that Blue’s listeners want to hear.
 

Blue teams up with three pianists (Sharp Radway, Kirk Lightsey and Benito Gonzalez), guitarist Jeff Barone, bassist Essiet Okon Essiet, drummer Steve Johns and, on three songs apiece, the rambunctious trombonist Ron Wilkins and percussionist Neil Clark. Starting with the exuberant “Work,” the program includes such surprises as an uptempo transformation of “Lift Every Voice And Sing,” two versions of “That’s All” (including a duet with pianist Lightsey), a playful rendition of “Don’t Know Why,” and a cooking “Everything Happens To Me” which is normally taken as a slow ballad. Blue, displaying a large tone that almost sounds like a baritone in spots, is heard at his best on his original ballad “My Friend And I Took A Walk” and “Our Day Will Come” which benefits from a shuffle rhythm. Trombonist Wilkins is quite boisterous on Nat Adderley’s soulful “Sweet Emma,” the Jimmy Smith minor blues “Mellow Mood,” and George Coleman’s “Amsterdam After Dark.” Another highpoint is Blue’s “Attitude” which, after an energized and surprising melody, becomes a hot swinger that features the composer.
 

Ray Blue has been an important saxophonist for the past 20 years, leading his own CDs on a regular basis since 2001. Among those who he has worked with through the years have been John Gilmore, Art Davis, Benny Powell, Eddie Henderson, the Charlie Persip Super Band, Wycliffe Gordon, Steve Turre, Ted Curson, and The Sun Ra Arkestra. The saxophonist, who has appeared at many international jazz festivals, has also been an influential educator and is the founder of Cross-Cultural Connection, Inc. a non-profit organization that promotes jazz culture, performance and education.
 

WORK is one of Ray Blue’s most enjoyable outings to date, a melodic set that will appeal to a large audience, especially those who enjoy the Old School swinging jazz style and sound.

Brazilian Music Foundation Presents Marcello Linhos & Armorial – Viola Caipira

Brazilian Music Foundation Presents Marcello Linhos & Armorial – Viola Caipira

 Brazilian Music Foundation<!–




Just a reminder!
Marcello Linhos & Armorial
VIOLA CAIPIRA
Brazilian Folk 
Music
Sept 15th, 2019 – 7:30 pm @ Drom – NYC
85 Avenue A, East Village, NYC 10009


Brazilian Music Foundation and Asuos Productions have the pleasure of presenting for the first time in New York City Marcello Linhos & Armorial “Viola Caipira” as part of our annual cultural and educational program. “Viola Caipira” it is predominantly played in the Brazilian countryside and small towns, also known as “Viola Sertaneja”, “Cabocla” or “Brazilian chordophone.” It is a recognized example of traditional Brazilian folk music, folkloric, also called sertaneja music. 


Coming up soon! Message from Armorial Group to NYC!



Marcello Linhos & Armorial

The group, winner of FAC Conexão Cultura/Brasilia, DF,  will present a rich and sensitive repertoire that has enchanted Brazilians from all walks of life. They simply propose a new form of Brazilian regional music whose essence binds us with the deep rooted, singular feeling of love of our land. This music connects us to each other and to our origins. It resonates and rekindles the past bringing forth often hidden and unknown memories in our hearts.
Recapturing the musical style for today rekindles the connection to the caipira feeling within each of our hearts, an essential emotion, so simple and yet at the same time as elaborate as love. With great care, respect and attention, old peasant waltzes and one hundred year old sertanejo modinhas like “Tristezas do Jeca” (Jeca’s Sorrows) by Angelino de Oliveira, and “Rosa” ( Rose) by Conde Affonso Celso Junior  receive a new look and join new arrangements of regional music classics like the acclaimed “Trem do  Pantanal” (Wetland Train) by Almir Sater and “Romaria” (Pilgrimage) by  Renato Teixeira. The new Brazilian regional music is centenary and at the same time modern. Marcello Linhos and his Armorial raise the flag and thrill their audience at the first touch of the viola bringing out the country feeling latent in each of our hearts.

Musicians:
Marcello Linhos /Viola Caipira & Vocal
Nelson Latif /Seven String Guitar
Marcelo Lima /Mandolin

“Duduka is a fantastic drummer, he has worked with me and I love the way he plays.”
 Antonio Carlos Jobim

“Duduka Da Fonseca had the flowing beat doing his bidding, making one dance while sitting down. A master of “Brasilient” rhythms, he is equally capable of grooving a jazz 4/4 with his great, loosey-goosey swing.”
Ira Gitler, American jazz historian and journalist

“Duduka Da Fonseca is one of the very few drummers, or perhaps the only drummer, who has found his own unique voice by combining the two traditions. His command of Brazilian and American rhythms and his ability to integrate them so seamlessly is truly innovative.  
With music in mind,
Sincerely,”  
Billy Hart
 
“The Brazilian percussionist Duduka Da Fonseca,a key member of Trio Da Paz, may be the most impressive jazz-besotted Brazilian percussionist since Airto Moreira.  He balances tropical rhythms and swing with uncommon ease.”
THE NEW YORKER

KT Sullivan & Jeff Harnar Sing Sheldon Harnick & Charles Strouse
Laurie Beechman Theater at the West End Cafe
407 W. 42nd Street
Tuesday, September 10

shem.gif

This particular show is all about duos and trios: when you look on stage, your eyes see only singers KT Sullivan and Jeff Harnar, but the presence of director and Svengali-in-miniature Sondra Lee is so keenly felt throughout that she might as well be up there performing with them. The trio of Sullivan, Harnar, and Lee has already delivered an impressive and highly-original two-part take on the music of Stephen Sondheim, and thus it’s highly fitting that they should thus take on the works of Sheldon Harnick and Charles Strouse, who rank alongside Mr. Sondheim (and the perennially underappreciated Jerry Herman) as the greatest creators of musical theater who are still active and with us. Since Mr. Harnick wrote most of his best lyrics to music by the late Jerry Bock, and Mr. Strouse with Lee Adams and the late Martin Charnin, I’m not sure if that makes the creative team behind this show a septet or an octet or what, especially considering the musical direction of the formidable Jon Weber, who’s so talented (and so tall) that he’s practically a duo all by himself.

“Truly a masterwork of modern-day Brazilian guitar!”
– Jonathan Widran, Contemporary Fusion Reviews – May 7, 2019 read full review

“I love your new CD! Beautiful repertoire, arrangements and performances! It’s a new, exotic journey and concept that works brilliantly. Thanks for sending, and bravo to all for the terrific project! “
– Sharon Isbin, Grammy Award® winning, International Guitarist

“A Great Album…”
– Classical Guitar Magazine 

“Del Casale and Barbosa-Lima—who have been collaborators for more than 15 years—offer a gorgeous duo reading of “Manhã De Carnaval” that tugs at the heartstrings.”
– Downbeat Magazine

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/producer), Duduka da Fonseca (percussion), Nilson Matta (bass), and Helio Alves (piano).
Kabir Sehgal Executive Producer
 
“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!”

Bennett Paster’s June, 2019 release Indivisible has been garnering critical reviews in the press and has been in regular rotation on over 20 college and public radio stations, charting in the jazz top 10 in several markets.  The band’s next performance is Tuesday, Sept 3rd at 8pm at Halyards in Brooklyn.  Join them for one long set of original funky jazz at this cool Brooklyn bar, rapidly becoming a destination to hear creative improvisation in the borough.

 

“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)

  

Paster’s piano trio, featuring the great Ed Howard on bass and always-swinging Joe Strasser on drums will make their Mezzrow debut the following Monday, September 9th, 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 trio context. Mezzrow is NYC’s premier intimate piano listening room, so be sure to make reservations in advance.

One of the top jazz pianists of the past half-century and an eclectic improviser who has long had his own sound and open-minded style, Kellaway has been featured on hundreds of recordings and written a countless amount of music since the 1960s. As is obvious from his most recent recording, New Jazz Standards, Kellaway has lost none of his creativity, virtuosity, enthusiasm or willingness to stretch himself.
 

When asked what material his trio might be performing at Birdland, Kellaway said “It will be a journey through the melodies of my life…Alfie’s Theme (which he recorded with Sonny Rollins in 1965), a few songs from his Oscar Peterson tribute album Heroes (which won the French Classic Jazz award), two tunes from Carl Saunders New Jazz Standards Vol 3, and a few brand new original compositions.
 
At the same time that the Roger Kellaway Trio will be performing at the Birdland Theater downstairs, the Birdland Jazz Club upstairs will be hosting the Django Festival (November 12-17) celebrating their 20th anniversary with the Django Festival Allstars, produced by Pat Philips Stratta. “They always have a guest each night, so for the two nights that I’m at Birdland, I will also be their special guest. And some of their Allstars, such as violinist Pierre Blanchard and accordionist Ludovic Beier, will join me downstairs as my special guests!”
 
Kellaway has performed on hundreds of jazz recordings. A few of his personal favorites are Wes Montgomery’s Bumpin, Oliver Nelson’s More Blues And The Abstract Truth, and The Power Of Positive Swinging with Clark Terry & Bob Brookmeyer”. Beyond jazz, he has worked as a musical director for Bobby Darin & Tony Bennett. As composer, he has 29 film scores to his name and wrote the well-known closing theme song for All In The Family (“Remembering You”). He’s worked with everyone from Ellington to Elvis, Carmen McRae to Barbra Streisand, Joni Mitchel and Quincy Jones to Yo-Yo Ma.
 
“I’ve always liked playing Birdland, I performed at the original one on 52nd and Broadway with Kai Winding’s band when I was in my early twenties. I’ve known Gianni Valenti, the present owner for about 20 years, and I am delighted to be celebrating my 80thwith my trio in the new Birdland Theater!” 
 
The remarkable pianist/composer will be in typically inspired and inventive form during his two special nights at the Birdland Theater November 15 & 16. For more information about the historic engagement  www.birdlandjazz.com and www.rogerkellaway.com

PEARRING SOUND  
“Nothing But Time”

PEARRING SOUND  “Nothing But Time” 
(Self Produced) Street Date: October 4,2019

JEFF PEARRING ─ Alto Saxophone,
ADAM LANE ─ Acoustic Bass and Electric Bass, TIM FORD ─ Drums

SoundCloud:  https://soundcloud.com/search?q=pearring%20sound

Time to wonder, time to wander, time to listen, time to sing… but no time for jive.  In the clean air of Manitou Springs, Colorado, with the Garden of the Gods his backyard, alto saxophonist Jeff Pearring grew up in harmony with nature, and has remained, amidst the hustle of the music scene and bustle of 21stcentury Brooklyn, in tune with himself.

 As the West was a place for settlers to become who they wanted to be and discover who they were, so music affords a realm to bare and share our spirit, to find beauty in our surroundings and share our joy.  Sagacious guides are always helpful to explorers, and at an early age, after realizing he was not cut out for the trumpet, Jeff found the propitiously-named Bud Reed, who steered him to the saxophone.  Jeff landed in New York in 2002, after playing in college with ska/reggae and blues bands, wanting more of a shaping effect on the music he played. In 2005 he met the inimitable Connie Crothers, whose prime pedagogical tenet was to help musicians unearth their own inner voice.  The results of their collaboration can be heard on the 2015 live recording, True Story.  Jeff Pearring has found his sound. 

In fact, Pearring Sound is the rubric under which Jeff assembles various combinations of New York improvisers, pairing players of different generations, one such being a Double Trio, inspired by Ornette Coleman’s Free Jazz double quartet, which includes, in addition to two thirtysomething altoists, two septuagenarian drummers.  The singular trio heard here is filled out by stalwart bassist Adam Lane, who has performed internationally with everyone from Bernard Purdie to John Tchicai and whose widely acclaimed Full Throttle Orchestra recordings on Clean Feed mark him as a leading bandleader/composer in his own right, and relative newcomer drummer Tim Ford, who meets the music’s twists and turns with do-or-die Bed Stuy élan and aplomb. The group has performed regularly for the past year, and it shows; each of the three can fly fancy free, knowing the others have his back and will bring him home.  

This studio recording offers Jeff the opportunity not only to showcase the group’s telepathic improvisation and sense of spontaneous composition, but also utilize modern technology to extend its sonic dimensions.  All the tracks, all group originals save Duke Ellington’s composition Blue Pepper, were created in the moment—no overdubbing—in two sessions, recorded 15 days apart.  At the first, with Lane playing electric bass, the empathetic collaboration of engineer Jon Rosenberg selectively enhanced harmonies and rhythms implicit in the playing.  The second gave free rein to the trio to stretch their acoustic sounds au naturel.Together, they take the listener on a hitherto uncharted journey through space and time.

In a time when the music world is brimming with budding virtuosos who know and play everything, it’s a breath of fresh air to encounter someone who knows and plays himself.  If you haven’t already, it’s time to listen to Jeff Pearring.
