Sunday, May 19th 4 to 5pm

Scott Wenzel from Mosaic Records The Bill Savory Collection

Scott Wenzel from Mosaic Records will  talk about one of the most amazing jazz archeological discoveries of the 21st century The Bill Savory Collection.

Never before heard recordings by The Count Basie Orchestra with Lester Young, Chick Webb, Ella Fitzgerald, Coleman Hawkins, Lionel Hampton, Teddy Wilson, Albert Ammons, Benny Carter, Bobby Hackett, … the list goes on and on.
 
 A trained musician and audio engineer, Savory served in the U.S. Navy where he developed radar technology and flew as a test pilot. But first and foremost, Savory was a music lover who single handedly captured hundreds of hours of top-shelf music off the air in the six years preceding America’s entry into World War II. By day, he recorded commercials off the air for a transcription service. But by night, Savory compiled a musical treasure chest, recording the jazz artists he loved off the radio.   The live nightclub and ballroom performances he captured were longer and more creatively daring as the artists were freed from the constraints of the conventional studio. 
 
Packed away for decades and only rumored to exist, the Savory Collection was acquired by the National Jazz Museum in Harlem in 2010, the culmination of a 36-year quest by jazz historian Loren Schoenberg. The discovery made headlines around the world, including the front page of The New York Times
 
Wenzel was approached by Loren Schoenberg of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem to help catalog and ship the recordings found in the Bill Savory Collection. The Museum and Mosaic Records were able to release a portion of these recordings after many years of negotiations with various estates of the musicians who were on these recordings. Once these recordings were decided upon for release, both Schoenberg and Wenzel arranged how the music would be released on CD.  
 
Scott Wenzel (B. 1960) began collecting 78s while still in grammar school and continued his love of music throughout high school. He majored in Communications and Music while at Towson State University (Maryland) where he hosted a number of jazz programs over WCVT-FM. After graduation he was a DJ for WYRS-FM in Stamford, Ct. In 1987, Wenzel joined Mosaic Records and began producing boxed sets in 1999. In this role he is a three time Grammy Award nominee in the Best Historical Issue category and has won Jazz Journalist Association and Down Beat awards. He has also produced and written liner notes in addition to supplying 78s for Sony Legacy, Blue Note, Verve and Capitol. Wenzel lives in Rye, NY and also leads a 16 piece swing band and a jazz trio.

Sunday, June 2nd 4pm to 5pm
Arnold J. Smith
Ellington at Newport 1956

Special Guest Arnold J. Smith will speak about this legendary performance that took place on July 7, 1956 at the Newport Jazz Festival and was released on record by Columbia Records.

Some writer said that 1956 was the year they stopped taking Duke Ellington for granted. The Ellington ’56 LP was on its way to becoming legendary. The Paul Gonzales 27 choruses solo was taking on a life of its own. As for the actual show NJF producer George Wein had told me that under no circumstances was Duke to play “the medley” and leave. Ellington told me that he was working on the Newport Suite, new to his repertoire, right up to showtime. Little did we know that it would be a 1930’s warhorse, Diminuendo and Crescendo In Blue would become the star of the Festival. In 1957 A teen-aged autograph hound –moi– went down to his fave haunt, Birdland, the original on Broadway near 52nd St. to have the band sign the album of the ’56 Fest.

Oscar Goodstein, Birdand’s manager, was a family friend, got me pass the door and up to a celebratory bandstand. The guys passed the album around. Did I mention that it was an invitation only welcome home night for Duke? The result of that fateful night is what you see.
 
Arnold Jay Smith, a former editor of DownBeat Magazine, publicist, blogster, professor at the New School for 26 years, now teaches at New Jersey City University since 2000.

Sunday, June 30th 4pm to 5pm

Here’s what people are saying so far:

“Stryker Strikes Again!!” William Johnson KPOV

“Stryker remains as ruggedly stylish and direct as ever… one thing remains true and constant: the strength of the song itself remains paramount. Stryker doesn’t bend the originals into unrecognizable shapes or use the art of the cover as a means for intellectual exercise. He plays the songs in relatively straightforward manners, leaves space for solos, and lets the magic take shape on its own. And that, in a nutshell, is his formula for success when dealing with this terrain. While this may mark the end of Stryker’s Eight Track projects, it’s doubtful that (m)any would complain if a fourth happened to find its way to the marketplace. As fun dates go, these are hard to beat. “ Dan Bilawsky / All About Jazz

“When it comes to ultracool & hip jazz, guitarist Dave Stryker is at the very TOP of the list… what an absolutely fun album. The album opener, “Move on Up“, alone, makes it well worth purchasing the full album. Jared’s organ just KICKS IT OUT on this superb tune!  Stevie Wonder’s “Too High” is one of the best performances of the tune I’ve ever heard. The recording is just flawless.  I give Dave & his superb players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 out of 5.” Dick Metcalf, editor, Contemporary Fusion Reviews

“Dave Stryker’s third Baby Boomer covers album is, quite frankly, a can’t-lose proposition. That’s ‘cos the melodies are rich with timeless soul and everyone in the band are veteran masters who can effortlessly kick back and take an easygoing approach that these songs need to make them as engaging in these interpretations as they are with the originals.” S.Victor Aarons / Something Else Reviews

“It’s all in the special sauce.  In which we find guitar man Stryker paying tribute to his youth by hitting it on everything that was playing in your car 45 years ago when we were young and eclectic.  A gift shop record in lesser hands, the set list in impeccable again and the on board jazzbos are enjoying  being there for the trip—all of whom are no slouches either.  Tasty fun that means so much more as Stryker and company dig beneath the commercial veneer for the real deal.​“  CHRIS SPECTOR, Editor and Publisher ​


“Dave we need to complete the Trilogy!” said Stefan Harris as we drove to a gig last summer. We had recorded Eight Track with my working trio of Jared Gold and McClenty Hunter back in 2013 and Eight Track II followed three years later with the great Steve Nelson on vibraphone.  A Trilogy? I didn’t have to be asked twice!
 
The Eight Track projects have 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. (Besides, I had an Eight Track player in my van in high school and spent many hours listening to everything from Miles and Coltrane to Santana and Marvin Gaye!)
 
This time out we tackle Curtis Mayfield’s “Move on Up”, The Temptations’ “Papa was a Rollin’ Stone”, Steely Dan’s “Pretzel Logic”, and two tunes by Stevie Wonder: “Too High” and Joy Inside My Tears”. The Carpenters’ “We’ve Only Just Begun” and Burt Bacharach’s “This Guys In Love” show that a great melody is a great melody no matter the decade. And Stefon does Roy Ayer’s classic “Everybody Loves The Sunshine” proud before we start to wind down with Marvin Gaye’s “After the Dance.” Throughout I have to tip my hat to these outstanding musicians and friends who brought this music to life: Stefan Harris, Jared Gold, McClenty Hunter and Mayra Casales.
 
In these crazy times, I hope our takes on these classic songs can bring some joy and positivity into the world. The Trilogy is complete – Viva Eight Track!

Scott Wenzel from Mosaic Records The Bill Savory Collection

Scott Wenzel from Mosaic Records will  talk about one of the most amazing jazz archeological discoveries of the 21st century The Bill Savory Collection.

Never before heard recordings by The Count Basie Orchestra with Lester Young, Chick Webb, Ella Fitzgerald, Coleman Hawkins, Lionel Hampton, Teddy Wilson, Albert Ammons, Benny Carter, Bobby Hackett, … the list goes on and on.
 
 A trained musician and audio engineer, Savory served in the U.S. Navy where he developed radar technology and flew as a test pilot. But first and foremost, Savory was a music lover who single handedly captured hundreds of hours of top-shelf music off the air in the six years preceding America’s entry into World War II. By day, he recorded commercials off the air for a transcription service. But by night, Savory compiled a musical treasure chest, recording the jazz artists he loved off the radio.   The live nightclub and ballroom performances he captured were longer and more creatively daring as the artists were freed from the constraints of the conventional studio. 
 
Packed away for decades and only rumored to exist, the Savory Collection was acquired by the National Jazz Museum in Harlem in 2010, the culmination of a 36-year quest by jazz historian Loren Schoenberg. The discovery made headlines around the world, including the front page of The New York Times
 
Wenzel was approached by Loren Schoenberg of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem to help catalog and ship the recordings found in the Bill Savory Collection. The Museum and Mosaic Records were able to release a portion of these recordings after many years of negotiations with various estates of the musicians who were on these recordings. Once these recordings were decided upon for release, both Schoenberg and Wenzel arranged how the music would be released on CD.  
 
Scott Wenzel (B. 1960) began collecting 78s while still in grammar school and continued his love of music throughout high school. He majored in Communications and Music while at Towson State University (Maryland) where he hosted a number of jazz programs over WCVT-FM. After graduation he was a DJ for WYRS-FM in Stamford, Ct. In 1987, Wenzel joined Mosaic Records and began producing boxed sets in 1999. In this role he is a three time Grammy Award nominee in the Best Historical Issue category and has won Jazz Journalist Association and Down Beat awards. He has also produced and written liner notes in addition to supplying 78s for Sony Legacy, Blue Note, Verve and Capitol. Wenzel lives in Rye, NY and also leads a 16 piece swing band and a jazz trio.

Sunday, June 2nd 4pm to 5pm
Arnold J. Smith
Ellington at Newport 1956

Special Guest Arnold J. Smith will speak about this legendary performance that took place on July 7, 1956 at the Newport Jazz Festival and was released on record by Columbia Records.

Some writer said that 1956 was the year they stopped taking Duke Ellington for granted. The Ellington ’56 LP was on its way to becoming legendary. The Paul Gonzales 27 choruses solo was taking on a life of its own. As for the actual show NJF producer George Wein had told me that under no circumstances was Duke to play “the medley” and leave. Ellington told me that he was working on the Newport Suite, new to his repertoire, right up to showtime. Little did we know that it would be a 1930’s warhorse, Diminuendo and Crescendo In Blue would become the star of the Festival. In 1957 A teen-aged autograph hound –moi– went down to his fave haunt, Birdland, the original on Broadway near 52nd St. to have the band sign the album of the ’56 Fest.

Oscar Goodstein, Birdand’s manager, was a family friend, got me pass the door and up to a celebratory bandstand. The guys passed the album around. Did I mention that it was an invitation only welcome home night for Duke? The result of that fateful night is what you see.
 
Arnold Jay Smith, a former editor of DownBeat Magazine, publicist, blogster, professor at the New School for 26 years, now teaches at New Jersey City University since 2000.

Sunday, June 30th 4pm to 5pm

Newly formed electric jazz group “Field Theory” has been busy putting together new music and playing a series of gigs in the NYC area.  The compositions and electrified guitar tone of Matt Panayides blend with the mind-bending virtuosity of Matt Vashlishan on EWI to create a unique sonic texture.

“Panayides has released an intriguing, highly pleasurable disc that combines musical prowess with a deep melodic creativity.” – Jack Huntley, All About Jazz

Highlights In Jazz, “Salute to Randy Brecker” 
Tribeca Performing Arts Center
199 Chambers Street – (212) 220-1460 
Thursday, May 16th 8PM

shem.gif

It’s hard to believe I know, but trumpeter Randy Brecker turns 74 this year – and thus the enfant terrible of hard bop and jazz-rock fusion has now somehow mysteriously become an elder statesman of jazz.  (Alas, his equally talented younger brother, the late and much missed saxophone virtuoso, MIchael Brecker, never had the chance.) To honor this master musician, Highlights majordomo Jack Kleinsinger has organized two different and equally appropriate groups of players, whom he has designated, respectfully, as “millennials” and “masters.”  The masters include a truly formidable rhythm section of pianist George Cables, bassist Buster Williams, drummer and vibraphonist Chuck Redd.  The one possible problem with Jack’s designation is that the millennials, including the remarkable two-reed-identical twin team of Pete and Will Anderson and the high-octane bebop supersinger Veronica Swift, are also undeniably masters as well.  And, oh yes, the man of honor himself will be there, along with, as always, a surprise guest.

After decades of performing—from her early forays as a blues/folk singer-songwriter in her native Arkansas and Houston during the ‘70s to her deep dive into the music of Brazil and Uruguay to her various excursions into jazz as both pianist and vocalist—Elizabeth Tomboulian has finally stepped forward with her debut as a leader. A wide-ranging collection of tunes reflecting her eclectic tastes in music, Love’s In Need Of Love Today represents Tomboulian’s bluesy roots, her love of bossa nova and jazz along with her enduring belief in the power of music to heal.
 

“This is my first one as Elizabeth,” she said of her long-overdue debut. “I had recorded with my Latin group, Circo, with wordless vocals, horn unisons and Portuguese. I felt it was time for me to grab the reigns of my creativity and be the decider on a project where I sing songs in English that tell a story.”
 

Originally conceived as a reaction to the horrific shootings at the Pulse disco in Orlando, Florida in 2016, Love’s In Need Of Love Today is a healing balm for these turbulent times. “I heard that song on the radio after the shooting and immediately thought, ‘This is exactly what we need right now.’” recalled Tomboulian, who cites vocal artists Bobby McFerrin, Rhiannon, Classical soprano Patrice Michaels, Barbara Maier Gustern, and Billy Harper among her many teachers over the years. Her gospel-tinged rendering of that Stevie Wonder classic, replete with strings and uplifting choir, brings home the point in stirring fashion.
 

Elizabeth’s love of New Orleans music, reflecting her brief stay in the Crescent City in 1980, is evident on a second line re-imagining of the jazzstandard “Exactly Like You,” which features her husband Lee channeling his inner Professor Longhair on piano. Elizabeth adds lyrics to the affecting McCoy Tyner waltz, “For Tomorrow,” which features a potent solo from guest trumpeter Ingrid Jensen. Husband and wife team up on a clever Jackie & Roy-styled mashup of Thelonious Monk’s “Nutty” and the 1933 Broadway musical number “If I Love Again,” a tune later covered by such great singers as Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, Dakota Staton and Anita O’Day. 
 

Accompanying herself on piano, Elizabeth delivers an intimate reading of “The Ballad of the Snow Leopard and the Tanqueray Cowboy,” an epic ballad written by Texas poet laureate David R. Rodriguez and later recorded by Lyle Lovett. “That was from my roots,” she explained. “I spent a lot of time in Texas in my youth doing the blues and folk singer-songwriter thing in the vein of Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt and Phoebe Snow.”
 

More of her roots are represented on a laid back reading of the Bessie Smith blues number “Good Old Wagon,” which has her playing fingerstyle guitar and scatting with earthy abandon. A rapturous solo reading of the jazz standard “I Get Along Without You Very Well” features her penchant for reharmonization as a pianist while showcasing her flawless intonation, clear articulation, natural vibrato and warm, soaring vocal delivery. Her lone original here, the playful “Cheesy,” addresses Elizabeth’s heart for being choosy about relationships.Two other masterful mashups complete this winning debut. “Re: Person I Knew/Time After Time” is a gorgeous marriage of Bill Evans and Cyndi Lauper while the closer adeptly merges Buffalo Springfield’s anthemic “For What It’s Worth” with Joe Zawinul’s 1966 classic for the Cannonball Adderley quintet, “Mercy Mercy Mercy.” Says Elizabeth, “It was really fun to put those two together. And The lyric I wrote to ‘Mercy Mercy Mercy’ kind of crowns the album: ‘We can make a way for every soul to live in peace/hungry children got to eat/everybody’s got to be free/and there is no fear in this whole sphere that love cannot defeat.’ That’s really my purpose for the whole album—to sing and proclaim that love wins.” That kind of affirming statement is one that Elizabeth felt an urgency to make at this point in her career. Her message on Love’s In Need Of Love Today is just what the doctor ordered. — Bill Milkowski

The annual Highlights In Jazz series, a fan fave for almost a half century, can be counted on to deliver concerts that surprise and delight savvy jazz fans. The third event of the 2019 lineup showcases one of the series’ most beloved traditions: paying homage to a living jazz great. The Highlights In Jazz presentation Salute to Randy Brecker celebrates the music and contributions of this beloved trumpeter and contemporary jazz icon. “Let’s honor them while they can smell the roses,” declares producer Jack Kleinsinger.

A multi-generational lineup mixing established jazz masters with the best of today’s musical up-and-comers will fete Brecker at the May 16th concert. Pianist George Cables, bassist Buster Williams, drummer/vibraphonist Chuck Redd, vocalist Veronica Swift, and saxophonists Peter Anderson and Will Anderson are scheduled to appear, along with guest of honor Randy Brecker. And, as has been the tradition since the very first Highlights in Jazz event, listeners will be treated to a surprise appearance by a renowned special guest.

Randy Brecker has been an important presence on the music scene going back to the 1960s. “Versatile” doesn’t begin to describe this Philadelphia-born master of trumpet and flugelhorn. Just consider the fact that in 1967 he worked with both Blood, Sweat and Tears and Horace Silver. And that was just the beginning for this groundbreaker and shape shifter. Brecker has been an important force in straight-ahead jazz, a fusion pioneer as co-founder of Dreams and the multi-Grammy nominated Brecker Brothers Band (with his brother, tenor maven Michael Brecker), and an in-demand contributor appearing on albums by artists as beloved – and as varied – as James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, Parliament/Funkadelic, Frank Sinatra, Steely Dan, Jaco Pastorius and Frank Zappa. Just to drop a few more names, Randy played with Art Blakey, George Benson, Freddie Hubbard, Oliver Nelson, Stevie Wonder, Lou Reed, James Brown, Eddie Palmieri, plus big bands led by Clark Terry, Duke Pearson, and Thad Jones/Mel Lewis.

Randy has earned numerous Grammys and a perennial slot on countless “best of” lists. The veteran musician sounds better than ever, as evidenced by Rocks, his recent release with the NDR Big Band–The Hamburg Radio Jazz Orchestra.

Something magical happens whenever outstanding jazz players of ages spanning a half century take to the stage and create common ground. That’s what you’ll experience at Highlights In Jazz’s upcoming Salute to Randy Brecker, when these masters of the genre strut their musical stuff.

Art Pepper dubbed pianist George Cables “Mr. Beautiful,” and after hearing him play just a few notes you’ll agree that he deserves the title. In addition to Pepper, Cables has shared stage, studio and bandstand with legends such as Woody Shaw, Dexter Gordon, Bobby Hutcherson, Sonny Rollins, Roy Haynes, Freddie Hubbard, Chico Freeman and Billy Harper, to name just a few. Besides being an in-demand sideman, George has released dozens of well-reviewed recordings as a leader—his stellar recent output includes the lauded My Muse, Icons and Influences, and The George Cables Songbook. Cables is a favorite of author Michael Connelly, who has mentioned the pianist frequently in his Harry Bosch series of detective novels. In fact, Cables appears on the soundtrack of the TV series, and has accompanied Connelly during the author’s public readings from his books.

 Grammy-winning bassist Buster Williams has worked and recorded with a breath-taking spectrum of greats such as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Mary Lou Williams, Art Blakey, Betty Carter, Chick Corea, Ron Carter, Carmen McRae, Sonny Rollins, Wynton Marsalis, and legions of others. In addition to a stellar jazz output that includes hundreds of recordings as a sideman and well over a dozen as a leader, Buster has appeared on numerous film scores, commercials and TV shows, from Sesame Street to The Tonight Show and Grammy broadcasts. He’s received numerous awards and grants, from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts, and others.

Drummer/vibraphonist Chuck Redd is a veteran musical road warrior, with more than two dozen European tours under his belt with the likes of Charlie Byrd, Barney Kessel, Terry Gibbs,Conte Candoli, and others. Chuck has performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Mel Torme, the Lionel Hampton Big Band, Tommy Flanagan, Ray Brown, and the Clayton/Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. The drummer/vibraphonist has released several albums under his own name, and appeared on scores of others with Nicki Parrott, Harry Allen, Houston Person, John di Martino, Ray Drummond, and others.

Is there anything vocalist Veronica Swift can’t do? Barely into her mid-20s, she’s already a seasoned song stylist with more than a decade of experience—at age 11 she made her Jazz at Lincoln Center debut, singing at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola. Not only does Swift know her way around swing, bop, and vocalese, she’s devoted to the Great American Songbook and tunes from the 1920s and ’30s. Chris Botti, Benny Green, Shelly Berg, Sheila Jordan, Emmet Cohen, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks, and the Diva Orchestra are among the notables she’s appeared with recently.

Saxophonists/clarinetists Peter and Will Anderson: Hailed by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and other august publications for their remarkable virtuosity, the identical Anderson twins began steeping themselves in classic jazz while still in elementary school. They absorbed the styles and sounds of Benny Goodman, Sidney Bechet, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie, and cite Duke Ellington and Charlie Parker as early influences. Since moving to the Big Apple, they’ve played with the likes of Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Heath, the Village Vanguard Orchestra, and Wycliffe Gordon. In addition to releasing several albums as leaders, the Juilliard-trained twosome have appeared off-Broadway celebrating the music of Artie Shaw and the Dorsey Brothers.

As always, no Highlights In Jazz concert would be complete without the appearance of a surprise special guest! “It’s always a well-kept secret, and it’s always a lot of fun,” producer Jack Kleinsinger notes. Kleinsinger is a hands-on producer, which makes the Highlights In Jazz series unique. You’ll see Jack on stage, introducing the musicians and sharing his vast knowledge of jazz history. He also structures the shows, laying out a format, specifying types of tunes—perhaps a ballad, followed by something up-tempo—but leaving the specific song choices to the players. “That way, there’s not eight guys standing around on stage wondering, ‘What are we going to do now?’ Sometimes I’m surprised by what they choose, but I trust the musicians, they’re all veterans,” Jack notes. His active role inspires him to continue producing the series. “I wouldn’t want to just book acts for 40-some years. Producing like this is fun for me.”

You won’t want to miss a single event in this new season of Highlights In Jazz!

Queens-based Terraza Big Band, Co-led by Michael Thomas and Edward Perez, Matches Modern Jazz With a Spectrum of Latin Influences on Stunning Debut

One Day Wonder features John Fedchock, Luis Perdomo, Troy Roberts, John Ellis, Roman Filiú, Samuel Torres and more

The Terraza Big Band, whose new debut album for Outside in Music is One Day Wonder, is striking from every angle, a marvelous exploration of the possibilities of the big-band format. There’s the composing-arranging of its co-founders and co-leaders, the alto saxophonist Michael Thomas and the bassist Edward Perez, full of resolutely modern jazz-orchestral harmony, inventive forms and a gamut of rhythms, from 21st-century swing to an encyclopedia of Latin-based styles. There’s the lineup, including many of the best young jazz-trained musicians in New York City, given ample opportunity to express their signature voices throughout the leaders’ generous charts. Then there are the X factors that might be a bit harder to define but are crucial nonetheless: an elastic, adaptable feel in the arrangements and performances that somehow gives this 18-piece outfit a small-group vibe; the sense that these high-caliber musicians are utterly engaged with and trusting of the leaders’ vision; a narrative approach to concert and album programming that gives a set of music the dimensions of an excellent film.   

Of course, a project of this magnitude could only have developed in a very special place—in this case a venue special enough to give the group its moniker. Since its beginnings in the summer of 2015, Thomas and Perez’s band has held down a regular gig at Terraza 7, an extraordinary club in Queens, located between the neighborhoods of Elmhurst and Jackson Heights. Founded by Freddy Castiblanco, a Colombian-born former doctor and veteran community organizer, Terraza 7 features a wide range of global music and jazz—its schedule of various Latin-based ensembles is among the strongest in New York—and provides a place for artists and neighbors to coalesce around issues of social justice. “Terraza 7 is a mission for Freddy,” Perez says. 

On the first Thursday of every month, the members of the Terraza Big Band become a part of that community, participating in an open rehearsal and then giving a full-length concert. To hear the band on its home turf is to receive an audiophile-worthy live-music experience. Seated directly across from the musicians, who are arranged on the venue’s transparent, loftlike stage that looms over the bar, every tricky form, every precision section part, every stout Cuban-influenced bassline, every heroic horn solo feels stunningly vibrant. The crowd—locals, jazz heads and curiosity-seekers alike—responds in kind. As the New York Times wrote in a piece on the current renaissance of New York-based large ensembles, “the [Terraza Big Band’s] audience was fully on board, but the ideas were entirely new.”

One Day Wonder, gorgeously recorded at Systems Two studio and conducted by Miho Hazama, herself a brilliant large-ensemble composer and bandleader, is essentially a virtual-reality jaunt to that great-sounding wedge-shaped room in Queens. It opens with Thomas’ “Zed,” a pointedly modern—think Kurt Rosenwinkel and Mark Turner at their most invitingly melodic—but highly playable piece. Perez’s “A New Leaf” follows, a seamless meld of buoyant Colombian-informed rhythm, graceful melody and symphonic ideas applied to jazz orchestration. “One Day Wonder,” a challenging composition crafted by the band’s tenor saxophonist Troy Roberts, is another example of Thomas’ ability as an arranger to take thrilling small-group jazz and magnify it to big-band proportions—remarkably, with no loss in urgency or expressivity. “Without Doubt” takes its title from Thomas’ experience writing it—an easygoing, almost intuitive process where everything seemed to fall into place. Here the tune provides a showcase for Thomas’ kinetic yet serene composing and some elegant solo work by Roberts, pianist Luis Perdomo and trumpeter Dave Neves. 

The next two pieces dig into Perez’s life experience. His “Pasar el Tiempo, Aunque Fugaz, Contigo,” propelled by danceable rhythms and splashed with vivid colors, is a big-band update of an older number, written to reflect the excitement and euphoria that accompanied a romance Perez traversed in his 20s. “I’m 40 now,” he says with a laugh. “I wanted to see if I could retell a story from earlier in my life, and maybe tell it with a little more nuance.” “Flights of Angels,” featuring at its core Perez’s breathtaking solo bass work, is a mediation on a surreal, out-of-body encounter in the street with some especially ghostlike fog. Thomas’ midtempo swinger “Longing” contrasts odd phrases and plenty of chord changes with wide-open harmonic space for expert blowing, including a master class of a solo from the legendary trombonist John Fedchock. Perez’s “Me Lo Dijo Mi Primo” also finds plenty of inspiration in fantastic extended blowing over simple harmony—this time it’s tenorman John Ellis out front—as well as an invaluable lesson in clave that Perez learned from his fellow bassist Alain Pérez. (It’s all about the downbeats.) “Think Tank” closes the record with Thomas’ au courant vision, a small-group postbop burner writ large. Throughout One Day Wonder, many other soloists step up, among them guitarist Alex Wintz, alto saxophonist Roman Filiú, percussionist Samuel Torres and Thomas, whose fiery composure as a player evokes everyone from beboppers like Phil Woods to such bold modernists as Miguel Zenón and David Binney. Other nonpareil players interpret the co-leaders’ charts with aplomb: Andy Gutauskas, on baritone saxophone and bass clarinet; trumpeters Sam Hoyt, Alex Norris and Josh Deutsch; trombonists Matt McDonald and Nick Vayenas; bass trombonist Jennifer Wharton; and drummer Jimmy Macbride.

A graduate of the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, where he attended on a full scholarship, Thomas also earned a master’s in jazz performance from New England Conservatory, where he received the jazz department’s sole Presidential Scholarship. While at NEC, his composition “Refract” won a DownBeat Student Music Award. Thomas’ debut album, The Long Way, was released in April of 2011. That same year, he moved to New York City to study at Juilliard and hit the ground running. Today he’s appeared as a sideman on more than 20 recordings, including Miguel Zenón’s Grammy-nominated 2014 big-band release, Identities Are Changeable, and the Dafnis Prieto Big Band’s Back to the Sunset, which recently won the Grammy for Best Latin Jazz Album. While maintaining his work as a much sought-after educator and composer, he’s performed with such luminaries as Wayne Shorter, Nicholas Payton, Jason Moran, Dave Liebman, Brian Blade, Gunther Schuller, John Patitucci, Randy Brecker, John Hollenbeck and Jason Palmer.

Perez garnered bandstand experience in Boston as well, while studying math at Harvard University. He later spent two years in Lima, Peru, performing with and learning from Afro-Peruvian musical royalty including Grammy-winners Eva Ayllón and Juan Medrano “Cotito.” As a bassist he’s shared stages with Lee Konitz, Greg Osby, Seamus Blake, Lionel Loueke, Kenny Werner, Jason Palmer, Paquito D’Rivera, Ignacio Berroa and Arturo O’Farrill, in whose Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra he’s appeared often in recent years. His recording credits include the pianist Hector Martignon’s Grammy-nominated Latin-jazz album Second Chance, and his music has been performed by the likes of Berroa, the Silkroad Ensemble, Yo-Yo Ma, Alan Gilbert, Cristina Pato and Jorge Pardo. A respected educator as well, he’s taught privately at the New School of Jazz and Contemporary Music and has held ongoing teaching positions at other institutions. 

Thomas and Perez connected in Boston, where they’d returned to play a mutual friend’s gig. They ended up becoming roommates in New York for a time—the perfect incubator in which to work rapidly and fruitfully on new music and fuse Thomas’ deep modern-jazz interests with Perez’s Latin-oriented mastery. “We first talked about just getting some friends together to read through some charts, but we were having some really strong espresso,” Perez recalls, chuckling. “Then we were like, well, if we do that, we should do a gig.” 

“When the band started,” Thomas adds, “we wanted to play with our favorite players. We were living together, and we were cranking out new charts all the time. We were sharing these ideas with each other and then taking them to the monthly gig, learning from each other.”

Multi-instrumentalist/composer Michael Moss, a veteran of New York’s free jazz scene, has assembled a brand-new band, the Accidental Orchestra, comprised of string, reed, brass and rhythm sections, emulating what he refers to as a small renaissance jazz orchestra. Moss traces the concept of a large group like this to the 1970s when, as President of Free Life Communication, a musicians’ cooperative in NYC, Moss was one of the first jazz musicians to use an improvising string section of extraordinary violinists, violists, and cellists in his group Free Energy. In 1973 he composed a two movement suite for Free Energy entitled Ain Soph that laid the cornerstone for the present project. Ain Soph musically explores archetypal themes in the Kabbalah and represents the creation myth as a substrate of the Jewish mythical tradition. Moss recorded and released Ain Soph on Cross Current (1978). 
Qabbalah::Entanglement completes the mythical cycle. 
 
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, Carol Buck, Lenny Mims, Tanja Hoehne, Brian Groder, Waldron Mahdi Ricks, Libby Schwartz, Peter Zummo, Steve Swell, Richard Keene, Elliot Levin, Michael Lytle, Ras Moshe Burnett, Dave Sewelson, Steve Cohn, Dom Minasi, Larry Roland, Ken Filiano, Bob Meyer, Chuck Fertal, Warren Smith.
 
The Accidental Orchestra recorded and released HELIX in 2018 on 4th Stream Records, a cd featuring two extended compositions by Michael Moss, and has received enthusiastic reviews from around the world: https://m2-theory.com/helix-reviews/. The Accidental Orchestra will perform Qabbalah::Entanglement three times at Westbeth Home to the Arts and then go into the recording studio. Music will be recorded, mixed, mastered and prepared for release. 
 
 
Qabbala::Entanglement is a twelve movement suite inspired by Michael Moss’s long study of Eastern mythology and Jungian analytic psychology. Moss artistically and musically presents an ancient metaphysical oracle in present-day form using improvisation over an extended compositional structure to realize his aims. Each of the 12 movements musically expresses a sephira or “limb” of the Tree of Life. For the Accidental Orchestra Moss has adapted Ain Soph, a 1973 composition recorded on 4th Stream Records (Cross Current, 1978).

Brooklyn Jazz Hall of Fame
Juneteenth Ceremony

Celebrate African American Freedom Day
June 19

shem.gif
 

May 8, 2019—Celebrate African American Freedom Day, at the Brooklyn Jazz Hall of Fame Juneteenth Ceremony on June 19, 6pm, Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, 1368 Fulton Street, in Brooklyn. The affair posthumously inducts pianist Randy Weston on a day of liberation and during a month-long celebration of Black music. Tickets are available at Eventbrite.
 

The Brooklyn Jazz Hall of Fame program weaves Black music genres, Afro-Caribbean, gospel, speaking-drum, and jazz to honor a international jazz icon, Randy Weston. The bill includes presentations by the Jazzteenth Freedom Ensemble, Emmanuel Baptist Church Worship Team, and Shanto’s Drum Procession. Rising star, flutist Gabrielle Garo will receive the Deacon Leroy Applin Young Lioness Award in recognition of her achievements in the jazz community. At the VIP post-reception, guests enjoy drinks and appetizers with hall of fame musicians while listening to Doug Guthrie & the Caribbean Jazzy Combo.
 

“Central Brooklyn Jazz Consortium develops programming for the Brooklyn Jazz Hall of Fame and recognizes the importance of music in the lives of African Americans,” stated Chairman Clarence Mosley Jr. “We deliberated on incorporating several themes into adeserving cultural celebration. The hall of fame ceremony communicates the message of freedom and Black folks’ spiritual connection to Africa.”
 

Randy Weston joins jazz greats, Lena Horne, Herbie Mann, Max Roach, and others in the Brooklyn Jazz Hall of Fame. Membership is based on several factors, including the social impact of the musician. Weston was an advocate of the African origins of music, and the rhythms he used became a component of jazz. Weston’s induction compliments the program’s Juneteenth and Black music themes.

Here’s what people are saying so far:

“Stryker Strikes Again!!” William Johnson KPOV

“Stryker remains as ruggedly stylish and direct as ever… one thing remains true and constant: the strength of the song itself remains paramount. Stryker doesn’t bend the originals into unrecognizable shapes or use the art of the cover as a means for intellectual exercise. He plays the songs in relatively straightforward manners, leaves space for solos, and lets the magic take shape on its own. And that, in a nutshell, is his formula for success when dealing with this terrain. While this may mark the end of Stryker’s Eight Track projects, it’s doubtful that (m)any would complain if a fourth happened to find its way to the marketplace. As fun dates go, these are hard to beat. “ Dan Bilawsky / All About Jazz

“When it comes to ultracool & hip jazz, guitarist Dave Stryker is at the very TOP of the list… what an absolutely fun album. The album opener, “Move on Up“, alone, makes it well worth purchasing the full album. Jared’s organ just KICKS IT OUT on this superb tune!  Stevie Wonder’s “Too High” is one of the best performances of the tune I’ve ever heard. The recording is just flawless.  I give Dave & his superb players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 out of 5.” Dick Metcalf, editor, Contemporary Fusion Reviews

“Dave Stryker’s third Baby Boomer covers album is, quite frankly, a can’t-lose proposition. That’s ‘cos the melodies are rich with timeless soul and everyone in the band are veteran masters who can effortlessly kick back and take an easygoing approach that these songs need to make them as engaging in these interpretations as they are with the originals.” S.Victor Aarons / Something Else Reviews

“It’s all in the special sauce.  In which we find guitar man Stryker paying tribute to his youth by hitting it on everything that was playing in your car 45 years ago when we were young and eclectic.  A gift shop record in lesser hands, the set list in impeccable again and the on board jazzbos are enjoying  being there for the trip—all of whom are no slouches either.  Tasty fun that means so much more as Stryker and company dig beneath the commercial veneer for the real deal.​“  CHRIS SPECTOR, Editor and Publisher ​


“Dave we need to complete the Trilogy!” said Stefan Harris as we drove to a gig last summer. We had recorded Eight Track with my working trio of Jared Gold and McClenty Hunter back in 2013 and Eight Track II followed three years later with the great Steve Nelson on vibraphone.  A Trilogy? I didn’t have to be asked twice!
 
The Eight Track projects have 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. (Besides, I had an Eight Track player in my van in high school and spent many hours listening to everything from Miles and Coltrane to Santana and Marvin Gaye!)
 
This time out we tackle Curtis Mayfield’s “Move on Up”, The Temptations’ “Papa was a Rollin’ Stone”, Steely Dan’s “Pretzel Logic”, and two tunes by Stevie Wonder: “Too High” and Joy Inside My Tears”. The Carpenters’ “We’ve Only Just Begun” and Burt Bacharach’s “This Guys In Love” show that a great melody is a great melody no matter the decade. And Stefon does Roy Ayer’s classic “Everybody Loves The Sunshine” proud before we start to wind down with Marvin Gaye’s “After the Dance.” Throughout I have to tip my hat to these outstanding musicians and friends who brought this music to life: Stefan Harris, Jared Gold, McClenty Hunter and Mayra Casales.
 
In these crazy times, I hope our takes on these classic songs can bring some joy and positivity into the world. The Trilogy is complete – Viva Eight Track!

Bennett Paster debuts ten originals on Indivisible
which explore a variety of grooves
that are both accessible and inventive.

 
The pianist-organist leads a trio augmented by guitar, tenor and percussion on catchy songs that are filled
with creative solos and colorful ensembles. 

 
In his career thus far, keyboardist, producer and arranger-composer Bennett Paster has performed with many of the who’s who of jazz in a variety of contexts. He says of his latest recording, “Deep groove is the number one priority on Indivisible. Each song explores a different flavor of groove, from 5/4 swing to funky 70s samba, from New Orleans to Nordic open 8th, and onwards to funk, country waltz, fusion, surf and beyond. This collection draws connections between the contrasting rhythms through the constant focus on groove.”
 
With a core trio that includes bassist Jeff Hanley and drummer Tony Mason plus several guests (guitarist Al Street, tenor-saxophonist Kenny Brooks, and percussionists Samuel Torres and Todd Isler), Paster is heard in top form as a pianist, organist and keyboardist, performing ten of his compositions.
 
Among the highlights, “Blues For Youse” has a funky soul jazz groove that may remind some in spots of Ramsey Lewis and early Herbie Hancock. “(Givin’ The People) What We Want” has an infectious half-time funk feel  while “Belgrade Booty Call” takes one to a funky New Orleans parade. The medium-tempo ballad “Gratitude,” an assertive “Gritty Greens” (shuffling a bit like “Work Song”), the sweet country backbeat of “The Murfreesboro Waltz,” and the fusionish “Salamander” (which is worthy of the Brecker Brothers) add to the variety of the consistently colorful program. The blend of the instruments along with a singular purpose by the players give a unity to the varied program while keeping listeners guessing as to what will happen next.
 
As a keyboardist, arranger-composer, bandleader, producer, recording and mixing engineer and the owner of his own studio, Bennett Paster has had a busy career, and one that has been steadily building in momentum and accomplishments.
 
Raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Bennett Paster began performing professionally at the age of 14. He studied at the New England Conservatory of Music with such notables as Dave Holland, Cecil McBee, Geri Allen, Paul Bley and Stanley Cowell. Since moving to New York in 1996, he has worked with such talents as Wallace Roney, Keb’ Mo,’ Robben Ford, Kurt Elling, Bill Stewart, Billy Hart, Peter Erskine, Albert “Tootie” Heath, Yosvany Terry, Curtis Stigers, and Ann Hampton Callaway among others.
 
Always fluent in a variety of different styles and musical idioms and equally talented on piano, organ, and electric keyboards, Paster (who co-led the Latin jazz ensemble Grupo Yanqui with bassist Gregory Ryan) has appeared on a countless number of sessions as a studio musician including with many singer/songwriters. As a leader he headed a trio on Skyline (2004) and Invisible Horizon (2006), was featured in the group Organic! on The Undoing (2001) and Sweets (2006), and led an all-star septet on Relentless Pursuit Of The Beautiful (2011). He also has extensive experience as a producer and recording engineer.
 
Bennett Paster sums up his newest recording this way: “Music moves us all, from finger snapping to full-on dancing. The power of groove to unite and bring joy is undeniable. It transcends cultures, nations, races and religion. This gravity is the force that I’m tapping into on the collection of songs that form Indivisible.”

Martin Reuter Is Going On A Multi-Borough Tour Of NYC In Celebration Of His New CD

For his “milk crate 3-borough tour of NY”

5/6 at The Shrine
5/11 Rockwood stage 3
5/31 Club Bonafide ALBUM RELEASE PARTY
6/7 Everything Goes Book Cafe Staten Island
6/21 Corkscrew Wines, Brooklyn

On the occasion of presenting his new band and album, Martin Reuter is going on a multi-borough tour of NYC with release party at Club Bonafide May 31st at 6pm.

52 street is a historic avenue for Jazz is in fusing new blood in its veins.

Astounding all original beauty Martin Reuter – Martin Reuter
Dick Metcalf, editor, Contemporary Fusion Reviews May 6, 2019
 

Astounding all original beauty Martin Reuter – MARTIN REUTER:  This is my first listen to Martin’s astounding all original music… I can tell you (with certainty) that it won’t be the last… tunes like the opener, “Halibut“, really highlight his uniqueness… I just love the bass line that drives the tune, and he’s managed to incorporate percussion and synth work that demands open ears… I (most STRONGLY) recommend that you listen to this with headphones on, at least for the first sitting.
 

Martin has some videos posted, so be sure and SUBSCRIBE to his YouTube channel – I did… in fact, he tells me that there will be a recent LIVE video posted there soon, which will be woven back into this review as soon as I see it.
 

He was exposed to musical world early-on, at around age 8, in his hometown of Clervaux, Luxembourg… he moved to NYC (by himself) at age 19 and began to hone his craft… you will hear on tunes like the percussion-filled “Fun“, that he really got it RIGHT!  

This release is actually about EP length, with the longest cut on the album (4:48) being “Feio“… beautiful swirls on synth guide the tune, and there are “spooky” electro voices woven in and speaking to the listener most intriguingly… I wouldn’t be surprised (at all) to see this splendid song recommended for awards – and WINNING.  I can hardly wait for his first full-length release.
 

I had no difficulty choosing my personal favorite… the 2:56 “Soft” is totally mesmerizing, and will give your ears (& your heart) the thrill of your life… I have NO doubt that this composition will be receiving MAJOR airplay on stations (of all types) around the globe… sheer beauty!
 

I give Martin a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of a (perfect) 5.00… meaning he also gets my “PICK” for “most intriguing album”.  Get more information about this fascinating creator at Martin’s website.

The annual Highlights In Jazz series, a fan fave for almost a half century, can be counted on to deliver concerts that surprise and delight savvy jazz fans. The third event of the 2019 lineup showcases one of the series’ most beloved traditions: paying homage to a living jazz great. The Highlights In Jazz presentation Salute to Randy Brecker celebrates the music and contributions of this beloved trumpeter and contemporary jazz icon. “Let’s honor them while they can smell the roses,” declares producer Jack Kleinsinger.

A multi-generational lineup mixing established jazz masters with the best of today’s musical up-and-comers will fete Brecker at the May 16th concert. Pianist George Cables, bassist Buster Williams, drummer/vibraphonist Chuck Redd, vocalist Veronica Swift, and saxophonists Peter Anderson and Will Anderson are scheduled to appear, along with guest of honor Randy Brecker. And, as has been the tradition since the very first Highlights in Jazz event, listeners will be treated to a surprise appearance by a renowned special guest.

Randy Brecker has been an important presence on the music scene going back to the 1960s. “Versatile” doesn’t begin to describe this Philadelphia-born master of trumpet and flugelhorn. Just consider the fact that in 1967 he worked with both Blood, Sweat and Tears and Horace Silver. And that was just the beginning for this groundbreaker and shape shifter. Brecker has been an important force in straight-ahead jazz, a fusion pioneer as co-founder of Dreams and the multi-Grammy nominated Brecker Brothers Band (with his brother, tenor maven Michael Brecker), and an in-demand contributor appearing on albums by artists as beloved – and as varied – as James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, Parliament/Funkadelic, Frank Sinatra, Steely Dan, Jaco Pastorius and Frank Zappa. Just to drop a few more names, Randy played with Art Blakey, George Benson, Freddie Hubbard, Oliver Nelson, Stevie Wonder, Lou Reed, James Brown, Eddie Palmieri, plus big bands led by Clark Terry, Duke Pearson, and Thad Jones/Mel Lewis.

Randy has earned numerous Grammys and a perennial slot on countless “best of” lists. The veteran musician sounds better than ever, as evidenced by Rocks, his recent release with the NDR Big Band–The Hamburg Radio Jazz Orchestra.

Something magical happens whenever outstanding jazz players of ages spanning a half century take to the stage and create common ground. That’s what you’ll experience at Highlights In Jazz’s upcoming Salute to Randy Brecker, when these masters of the genre strut their musical stuff.

Art Pepper dubbed pianist George Cables “Mr. Beautiful,” and after hearing him play just a few notes you’ll agree that he deserves the title. In addition to Pepper, Cables has shared stage, studio and bandstand with legends such as Woody Shaw, Dexter Gordon, Bobby Hutcherson, Sonny Rollins, Roy Haynes, Freddie Hubbard, Chico Freeman and Billy Harper, to name just a few. Besides being an in-demand sideman, George has released dozens of well-reviewed recordings as a leader—his stellar recent output includes the lauded My Muse, Icons and Influences, and The George Cables Songbook. Cables is a favorite of author Michael Connelly, who has mentioned the pianist frequently in his Harry Bosch series of detective novels. In fact, Cables appears on the soundtrack of the TV series, and has accompanied Connelly during the author’s public readings from his books.

 Grammy-winning bassist Buster Williams has worked and recorded with a breath-taking spectrum of greats such as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Mary Lou Williams, Art Blakey, Betty Carter, Chick Corea, Ron Carter, Carmen McRae, Sonny Rollins, Wynton Marsalis, and legions of others. In addition to a stellar jazz output that includes hundreds of recordings as a sideman and well over a dozen as a leader, Buster has appeared on numerous film scores, commercials and TV shows, from Sesame Street to The Tonight Show and Grammy broadcasts. He’s received numerous awards and grants, from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts, and others.

Drummer/vibraphonist Chuck Redd is a veteran musical road warrior, with more than two dozen European tours under his belt with the likes of Charlie Byrd, Barney Kessel, Terry Gibbs,Conte Candoli, and others. Chuck has performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Mel Torme, the Lionel Hampton Big Band, Tommy Flanagan, Ray Brown, and the Clayton/Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. The drummer/vibraphonist has released several albums under his own name, and appeared on scores of others with Nicki Parrott, Harry Allen, Houston Person, John di Martino, Ray Drummond, and others.

Is there anything vocalist Veronica Swift can’t do? Barely into her mid-20s, she’s already a seasoned song stylist with more than a decade of experience—at age 11 she made her Jazz at Lincoln Center debut, singing at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola. Not only does Swift know her way around swing, bop, and vocalese, she’s devoted to the Great American Songbook and tunes from the 1920s and ’30s. Chris Botti, Benny Green, Shelly Berg, Sheila Jordan, Emmet Cohen, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks, and the Diva Orchestra are among the notables she’s appeared with recently.

Saxophonists/clarinetists Peter and Will Anderson: Hailed by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and other august publications for their remarkable virtuosity, the identical Anderson twins began steeping themselves in classic jazz while still in elementary school. They absorbed the styles and sounds of Benny Goodman, Sidney Bechet, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie, and cite Duke Ellington and Charlie Parker as early influences. Since moving to the Big Apple, they’ve played with the likes of Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Heath, the Village Vanguard Orchestra, and Wycliffe Gordon. In addition to releasing several albums as leaders, the Juilliard-trained twosome have appeared off-Broadway celebrating the music of Artie Shaw and the Dorsey Brothers.

As always, no Highlights In Jazz concert would be complete without the appearance of a surprise special guest! “It’s always a well-kept secret, and it’s always a lot of fun,” producer Jack Kleinsinger notes. Kleinsinger is a hands-on producer, which makes the Highlights In Jazz series unique. You’ll see Jack on stage, introducing the musicians and sharing his vast knowledge of jazz history. He also structures the shows, laying out a format, specifying types of tunes—perhaps a ballad, followed by something up-tempo—but leaving the specific song choices to the players. “That way, there’s not eight guys standing around on stage wondering, ‘What are we going to do now?’ Sometimes I’m surprised by what they choose, but I trust the musicians, they’re all veterans,” Jack notes. His active role inspires him to continue producing the series. “I wouldn’t want to just book acts for 40-some years. Producing like this is fun for me.”

You won’t want to miss a single event in this new season of Highlights In Jazz!

Tito Puente, Machito, Ray Barretto


Warwick, NY author, historian and record producer Joe Conzo Sr. is an encyclopedia of Latin Jazz knowledge.

Joe Conzo, Sr. will play never before heard recordings from his private collection from Tito Puente, Machito and Ray Barretto.

Historian Joe Conzo, Sr., who is currently writing a book on the “Big Three” bandleaders Machito, Tito Puente, and Tito Rodríguez, owns an unrivaled collection of Machito live recordings. He is the producer of many recordings by Latin artists on prestigious labels such as Sony Music and Pablo. Conzo lectures for Jazz @ Lincoln Center, the Smithsonian and other organizations, and, since 2013, has taught a continuing education course on Latin music and Latin Jazz at Hostos with a focus on Puente, Rodríguez and Machito. A long-time Puente publicist and confidant, he penned the acclaimed book “Mambo Diablo: My Journey with Tito Puente” and produced more than 20 benefit concerts for the Tito Puente Scholarship Fund.  He also currently serves as the Director of the Tito Puente Legacy Project – an archive of Puente memorabilia based at the school. 

Sunday, May 19th 4 to 5pm
Scott Wenzel from Mosaic Records The Bill Savory Collection

Scott Wenzel from Mosaic Records will  talk about one of the most amazing jazz archeological discoveries of the 21st century The Bill Savory Collection.

Never before heard recordings by The Count Basie Orchestra with Lester Young, Chick Webb, Ella Fitzgerald, Coleman Hawkins, Lionel Hampton, Teddy Wilson, Albert Ammons, Benny Carter, Bobby Hackett, … the list goes on and on.
 
 A trained musician and audio engineer, Savory served in the U.S. Navy where he developed radar technology and flew as a test pilot. But first and foremost, Savory was a music lover who single handedly captured hundreds of hours of top-shelf music off the air in the six years preceding America’s entry into World War II. By day, he recorded commercials off the air for a transcription service. But by night, Savory compiled a musical treasure chest, recording the jazz artists he loved off the radio.   The live nightclub and ballroom performances he captured were longer and more creatively daring as the artists were freed from the constraints of the conventional studio. 
 
Packed away for decades and only rumored to exist, the Savory Collection was acquired by the National Jazz Museum in Harlem in 2010, the culmination of a 36-year quest by jazz historian Loren Schoenberg. The discovery made headlines around the world, including the front page of The New York Times
 
Wenzel was approached by Loren Schoenberg of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem to help catalog and ship the recordings found in the Bill Savory Collection. The Museum and Mosaic Records were able to release a portion of these recordings after many years of negotiations with various estates of the musicians who were on these recordings. Once these recordings were decided upon for release, both Schoenberg and Wenzel arranged how the music would be released on CD.  
 
Scott Wenzel (B. 1960) began collecting 78s while still in grammar school and continued his love of music throughout high school. He majored in Communications and Music while at Towson State University (Maryland) where he hosted a number of jazz programs over WCVT-FM. After graduation he was a DJ for WYRS-FM in Stamford, Ct. In 1987, Wenzel joined Mosaic Records and began producing boxed sets in 1999. In this role he is a three time Grammy Award nominee in the Best Historical Issue category and has won Jazz Journalist Association and Down Beat awards. He has also produced and written liner notes in addition to supplying 78s for Sony Legacy, Blue Note, Verve and Capitol. Wenzel lives in Rye, NY and also leads a 16 piece swing band and a jazz trio.

Sunday, June 2nd 4pm to 5pm
Arnold J. Smith
Ellington at Newport 1956

Special Guest Arnold J. Smith will speak about this legendary performance that took place on July 7, 1956 at the Newport Jazz Festival and was released on record by Columbia Records.

Some writer said that 1956 was the year they stopped taking Duke Ellington for granted. The Ellington ’56 LP was on its way to becoming legendary. The Paul Gonzales 27 choruses solo was taking on a life of its own. As for the actual show NJF producer George Wein had told me that under no circumstances was Duke to play “the medley” and leave. Ellington told me that he was working on the Newport Suite, new to his repertoire, right up to showtime. Little did we know that it would be a 1930’s warhorse, Diminuendo and Crescendo In Blue would become the star of the Festival. In 1957 A teen-aged autograph hound –moi– went down to his fave haunt, Birdland, the original on Broadway near 52nd St. to have the band sign the album of the ’56 Fest.

Oscar Goodstein, Birdand’s manager, was a family friend, got me pass the door and up to a celebratory bandstand. The guys passed the album around. Did I mention that it was an invitation only welcome home night for Duke? The result of that fateful night is what you see.
 
Arnold Jay Smith, a former editor of DownBeat Magazine, publicist, blogster, professor at the New School for 26 years, now teaches at New Jersey City University since 2000.

Queens-based Terraza Big Band, Co-led by Michael Thomas and Edward Perez, Matches Modern Jazz With a Spectrum of Latin Influences on Stunning Debut

One Day Wonder features John Fedchock, Luis Perdomo, Troy Roberts, John Ellis, Roman Filiú, Samuel Torres and more

The Terraza Big Band, whose new debut album for Outside in Music is One Day Wonder, is striking from every angle, a marvelous exploration of the possibilities of the big-band format. There’s the composing-arranging of its co-founders and co-leaders, the alto saxophonist Michael Thomas and the bassist Edward Perez, full of resolutely modern jazz-orchestral harmony, inventive forms and a gamut of rhythms, from 21st-century swing to an encyclopedia of Latin-based styles. There’s the lineup, including many of the best young jazz-trained musicians in New York City, given ample opportunity to express their signature voices throughout the leaders’ generous charts. Then there are the X factors that might be a bit harder to define but are crucial nonetheless: an elastic, adaptable feel in the arrangements and performances that somehow gives this 18-piece outfit a small-group vibe; the sense that these high-caliber musicians are utterly engaged with and trusting of the leaders’ vision; a narrative approach to concert and album programming that gives a set of music the dimensions of an excellent film.   

Of course, a project of this magnitude could only have developed in a very special place—in this case a venue special enough to give the group its moniker. Since its beginnings in the summer of 2015, Thomas and Perez’s band has held down a regular gig at Terraza 7, an extraordinary club in Queens, located between the neighborhoods of Elmhurst and Jackson Heights. Founded by Freddy Castiblanco, a Colombian-born former doctor and veteran community organizer, Terraza 7 features a wide range of global music and jazz—its schedule of various Latin-based ensembles is among the strongest in New York—and provides a place for artists and neighbors to coalesce around issues of social justice. “Terraza 7 is a mission for Freddy,” Perez says. 

On the first Thursday of every month, the members of the Terraza Big Band become a part of that community, participating in an open rehearsal and then giving a full-length concert. To hear the band on its home turf is to receive an audiophile-worthy live-music experience. Seated directly across from the musicians, who are arranged on the venue’s transparent, loftlike stage that looms over the bar, every tricky form, every precision section part, every stout Cuban-influenced bassline, every heroic horn solo feels stunningly vibrant. The crowd—locals, jazz heads and curiosity-seekers alike—responds in kind. As the New York Times wrote in a piece on the current renaissance of New York-based large ensembles, “the [Terraza Big Band’s] audience was fully on board, but the ideas were entirely new.”

One Day Wonder, gorgeously recorded at Systems Two studio and conducted by Miho Hazama, herself a brilliant large-ensemble composer and bandleader, is essentially a virtual-reality jaunt to that great-sounding wedge-shaped room in Queens. It opens with Thomas’ “Zed,” a pointedly modern—think Kurt Rosenwinkel and Mark Turner at their most invitingly melodic—but highly playable piece. Perez’s “A New Leaf” follows, a seamless meld of buoyant Colombian-informed rhythm, graceful melody and symphonic ideas applied to jazz orchestration. “One Day Wonder,” a challenging composition crafted by the band’s tenor saxophonist Troy Roberts, is another example of Thomas’ ability as an arranger to take thrilling small-group jazz and magnify it to big-band proportions—remarkably, with no loss in urgency or expressivity. “Without Doubt” takes its title from Thomas’ experience writing it—an easygoing, almost intuitive process where everything seemed to fall into place. Here the tune provides a showcase for Thomas’ kinetic yet serene composing and some elegant solo work by Roberts, pianist Luis Perdomo and trumpeter Dave Neves. 

The next two pieces dig into Perez’s life experience. His “Pasar el Tiempo, Aunque Fugaz, Contigo,” propelled by danceable rhythms and splashed with vivid colors, is a big-band update of an older number, written to reflect the excitement and euphoria that accompanied a romance Perez traversed in his 20s. “I’m 40 now,” he says with a laugh. “I wanted to see if I could retell a story from earlier in my life, and maybe tell it with a little more nuance.” “Flights of Angels,” featuring at its core Perez’s breathtaking solo bass work, is a mediation on a surreal, out-of-body encounter in the street with some especially ghostlike fog. Thomas’ midtempo swinger “Longing” contrasts odd phrases and plenty of chord changes with wide-open harmonic space for expert blowing, including a master class of a solo from the legendary trombonist John Fedchock. Perez’s “Me Lo Dijo Mi Primo” also finds plenty of inspiration in fantastic extended blowing over simple harmony—this time it’s tenorman John Ellis out front—as well as an invaluable lesson in clave that Perez learned from his fellow bassist Alain Pérez. (It’s all about the downbeats.) “Think Tank” closes the record with Thomas’ au courant vision, a small-group postbop burner writ large. Throughout One Day Wonder, many other soloists step up, among them guitarist Alex Wintz, alto saxophonist Roman Filiú, percussionist Samuel Torres and Thomas, whose fiery composure as a player evokes everyone from beboppers like Phil Woods to such bold modernists as Miguel Zenón and David Binney. Other nonpareil players interpret the co-leaders’ charts with aplomb: Andy Gutauskas, on baritone saxophone and bass clarinet; trumpeters Sam Hoyt, Alex Norris and Josh Deutsch; trombonists Matt McDonald and Nick Vayenas; bass trombonist Jennifer Wharton; and drummer Jimmy Macbride.

A graduate of the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, where he attended on a full scholarship, Thomas also earned a master’s in jazz performance from New England Conservatory, where he received the jazz department’s sole Presidential Scholarship. While at NEC, his composition “Refract” won a DownBeat Student Music Award. Thomas’ debut album, The Long Way, was released in April of 2011. That same year, he moved to New York City to study at Juilliard and hit the ground running. Today he’s appeared as a sideman on more than 20 recordings, including Miguel Zenón’s Grammy-nominated 2014 big-band release, Identities Are Changeable, and the Dafnis Prieto Big Band’s Back to the Sunset, which recently won the Grammy for Best Latin Jazz Album. While maintaining his work as a much sought-after educator and composer, he’s performed with such luminaries as Wayne Shorter, Nicholas Payton, Jason Moran, Dave Liebman, Brian Blade, Gunther Schuller, John Patitucci, Randy Brecker, John Hollenbeck and Jason Palmer.

Perez garnered bandstand experience in Boston as well, while studying math at Harvard University. He later spent two years in Lima, Peru, performing with and learning from Afro-Peruvian musical royalty including Grammy-winners Eva Ayllón and Juan Medrano “Cotito.” As a bassist he’s shared stages with Lee Konitz, Greg Osby, Seamus Blake, Lionel Loueke, Kenny Werner, Jason Palmer, Paquito D’Rivera, Ignacio Berroa and Arturo O’Farrill, in whose Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra he’s appeared often in recent years. His recording credits include the pianist Hector Martignon’s Grammy-nominated Latin-jazz album Second Chance, and his music has been performed by the likes of Berroa, the Silkroad Ensemble, Yo-Yo Ma, Alan Gilbert, Cristina Pato and Jorge Pardo. A respected educator as well, he’s taught privately at the New School of Jazz and Contemporary Music and has held ongoing teaching positions at other institutions. 

Thomas and Perez connected in Boston, where they’d returned to play a mutual friend’s gig. They ended up becoming roommates in New York for a time—the perfect incubator in which to work rapidly and fruitfully on new music and fuse Thomas’ deep modern-jazz interests with Perez’s Latin-oriented mastery. “We first talked about just getting some friends together to read through some charts, but we were having some really strong espresso,” Perez recalls, chuckling. “Then we were like, well, if we do that, we should do a gig.” 

“When the band started,” Thomas adds, “we wanted to play with our favorite players. We were living together, and we were cranking out new charts all the time. We were sharing these ideas with each other and then taking them to the monthly gig, learning from each other.”
