Re-Encounter! Gary Smulyan Quintet
feat. Eric Alexander & Renee Rosnes

FRI & SAT • MAY 3 & 4
7:00 PM & 9:30 PM

Baritone saxophonist Gary Smulyan was born April 4, 1956, in Bethpage, New York. The gifted multi-instrumentalist started his music career by first learning alto saxophone during his teenage years on Long Island.

Today he is critically acclaimed across-the-board and recognized as the major voice on the baritone saxophone. His playing is marked by an aggressive rhythmic sense, an intelligent and creative harmonic approach — and perhaps most importantly – a strong and incisive wit.

The Gary Smulyan Quintet features Eric Alexander, sax, Renee Rosnes, piano, Sean Smith, bass, and Carl Allen, drums.


Fleurine’s Brazilian Dream

4 PM & 6 PM

Fleurine, jazz vocalist and Brazilian music authority, has gained a devoted international following for her “warm, enveloping sound and gentle rhythmic drive” (Los Angeles Times) and her “cunning brand of vocal wizardry” (JazzTimes).

A Dutch native, she spent summers visiting her grandparents and great uncle in Portugal, becoming fluent in Portuguese and leading her first Brazilian cover band in her teens. She went on to become the first singer authorized to translate into English the lyrics of the legendary Chico Buarque, for her spellbinding 2008 Sunnyside release San Francisco (produced by Robert Sadin).

Fleurine is donating nearly all of the proceeds from Brazilian Dream to Estrela da Favela, a small idealistic school located in the troubled Mangueira neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro. It is her way of giving back to the country that has inspired her throughout her career.


Following Weekend • May 10 – 12

Steve Kuhn Trio feat. Aidan O’Donnell & Billy Drummond

FRI & SAT • MAY 10 & 11
7:00 PM & 9:30 PM

Over a career of a half-century and counting, Steve Kuhn has earned renown as one of the most lyrical and affecting pianists in jazz, with an unfailingly beautiful touch and a sophisticated sense of swing. “Steve is an original stylist,” points out Dan Morgenstern, director of the Institute of Jazz Studies at Rutgers.

“He’s one of the finest pianists out there today.” Jazziz magazine described Kuhn’s distinctive sound: “Few other pianists, regardless of genre, can tease such an evocative range of timbres from their instrument. Kuhn’s lower register is as dark and rich as Belgian chocolate, and his upper register has the light, translucent quality of ice-cold champagne.”


Marianne Solivan Quartet

SUN • MAY 12
4 PM & 6 PM

Solivan has made a name for herself as a hard swinging, passionate, vocalist who has a commanding stage presence and is able to captivate audiences with her joyous exuberance and wit. Having performed and recorded with Christian McBride, Peter Bernstein, Jeremy Pelt, Bruce Barth, Gregory Hutchinson, Johnathan Blake, Xavier Davis, Michael Kanan, Steve Wilson, Gene Bertoncini and Lewis Nash, Solivan has been consistently raising the bar for singers of her generation. 

Jordan Richardson at Blinded by Sound concludes “The exquisiteness, expression and sentiment of her singing are supreme. She is well beyond the go-through-the-motions singers of the genre by an enormous margin.”


The Weekend of May 17 – 19

Paquito D’Rivera Quintet

From there, he skyrocketed into a career that often has him labeled a “living legend.” Paquito D’Rivera’s discography includes over 30 solo albums and he is the first artist to win Latin Grammy Awards in both Classical and Latin Jazz categories.
