Alexis Cole Trio featuring David Finck & Kenny Hassler

FRI & SAT • Mar 13 & 14
7 & 9:30 PM

With her sophisticated style and deep contralto that Jazz Times called “smooth and dark as the richest espresso,” Alexis Cole is equally comfortable singing in hard bop settings as tackling Disney or Paul Simon’s material. For two decades, through 11 albums, she’s inhabited standards, especially blues and ballads, in the manner of Sarah Vaughan and Anita O’Day. An old friend of the Jazz Forum, Alexis remains an international attraction. Come see why.

Willie Martinez Latin Jazz Quartet

SUN • MAR 15
4 & 6 PM

New York’s music scene has it all so it’s natural that Brooklyn-born drummer-composer-arranger-vocalist Willie Martinez has played the city’s varied major stages for three decades, from CBGB’s to Carnegie Hall. One of the most sought-after drummers in Latin Jazz, he’s performed with legends like bandleader Chico O’Farrill and pianist George Cables besides fronting La Famillia Sextet. His own quartet gigs are always some of the hottest dates in town.

Following Weekend: Mar 20 - 22

Among his generation’s top jazz guitarists, Roni Ben-Hur’s gorgeous tone and fluidity graces both straight ahead jazz and Brazilian styles with subtle brilliance. Grammy Winning guitarist Russell Malone says that, “Everything Roni does is beautiful. He has the magic touch,” and Roni comes to Tarrytown with a suitably superior ensemble, including saxophonist Steven Wilson, bassman Harvie S., pianist Donald Vega and drummer Sylvia Cuenca.

Eduardo Belo Group

SUN • MAR 22
4 & 6 PM

Originally from Brasilia, bassist/guitarist Eduardo Belo’s mastery of Brazilian music, Gypsy jazz and modern jazz reached full flower in New York where he’s become a first-call accompanist for top musicians like Brad Mehldau, Bebel Gilberto, Claudio Roditi and Hendrik Meurkens in performance and recording studio. In recent years, he’s begun leading his own group and the acclaimed magical flutist Hadar Noiberg, a frequent collaborator, will be joining him for this gig.
