He started playing piano at four, and taking violin lessons at eight.

Roger then began a professional jazz career when he attended the Stanford Jazz Workshop at Stanford University in California, studying under visiting teachers Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie, and James Moody. As a jazz pianist, Roger went on to be mentored by Helen Keane, who later produced his first jazz album.

Liz Rosa Group
feat. Roni Ben-Hur
Liz began her musical career in 2002 at the age of sixteen, she was born in Natal and after establishing her presence in the northeast of Brazil, she moved to Rio de Janeiro in 2007 where she lived for 10 years and has captured the attention of listeners and critics worldwide with her interpretation of the classic Brazilian songbook.

In 2012 celebrating 10 years in the professional music field, Liz recorded her debut album “LIZ ROSA”. Liz’s influence of several Brazilian rhythms including baião and samba and American jazz work perfectly with the samba-jazz flavor presented throughout the album. The result transcends musical boundaries while still featuring a sophisticated, swinging Brazilian jazz atmosphere with lean and inspired arrangements by  Ricardo Silveira.

After establishing her presence in Brazil and Europe, Liz Rosa moved to New York City in 2017 to pursue the next levels of her musical development.

Liz has performed at many respected venues and festivals around the world such as the Blue Note Rio, Festival de Jazz de Punta del Este, Rigas Ritmi Festival, The Lyric Theatre (Toronto, Canada), Jazzahead (Bremen, Germany), Mezzrow (New York, USA) and at NYC’s Birdland. Liz has also performed with well-known Brazilian artists including João Bosco, João Donato and Roberto Menescal. Liz will collaborate with guitarist Roni Ben-Hur in a quartet setting at Jazz Forum.



Sunday Evening Jazz  Oct 7  |  6 pm

Judy Niemack Quartet
feat. Jim McNeely, Doug Weiss, Leon Parker
Born and raised in Pasadena, California, Judy gained her early experience singing in her church choir. She first heard Jazz through her mother’s Nancy Wilson records, and discovered that she could easily sing harmonies when she and her sister sang background vocals behind her brother, who played guitar and sang lead.

Judy studied classical singing and was encouraged to make it her focus, but the turning point in her young career was when she met the great tenor-saxophonist Warne Marsh.

Starting in the late 1970s, Judy became a talented composer and a lyricist who wrote words to such pieces as Clifford Brown’s “Daahoud,” Thelonious Monk’s “Misterioso,” Bill Evans’ “Interplay,” Richie Powell’s “Time” and Duke Jordan’s “Jordu,” and songs by Lee Konitz, Pat Metheny, Dexter Gordon, Gigi Gryce, Kenny Dorham, Curtis Fuller, Bob Brookmeyer, Richie Beirach, Don Grolnick, Steve Slagle, Mike Stern, Johnny Griffin and many others. One of the driving forces behind her writing is the desire to have lyrics that are more modern and relevant than many that are part of the famous but overly familiar songs of the 1930s and ‘40s. Judy Niemack will visit from her home in Germany to perform at the Jazz Forum with Jim McNeely, piano, Doug Weiss, bass and Leon Parker, drums.
