    From JAZZCORNER: “Saxophonist and composer Chico Freeman” 

    From JAZZCORNER

    1

    Saxophonist and composer Chico Freeman performs at Healdsburg Jazz Fest on June 9, Bach Dynamite & Dancing Society on June 10

    It’s been a while since Chico Freeman has played at Healdsburg Jazz Festival in Healdsburg, CA, but on June 9, 2018, he’s a featured guest with the Festival All-Stars. The final Saturday of the 20th anniversary could have been called Billy Hart Babatunde Lea Percussion Extravaganza, or The Return of Chico Freeman, or The Bobby Watson Soul-Bop Review, or any number of other possibilities. But Festival All-Stars will do fine. Each of the players is a Healdsburg veteran who has delivered some of the most scintillating performances in the festival’s history. Now they are all together in the type of special collaboration on which the festival thrives. And guest tenor saxophonist Chico Freeman, heir to Chicago jazz royalty, is the guy who split for Europe 15 years ago and how has returned to show U.S. jazz fans what they’ve been missing. His performance with his father, late tenor master Von Freeman, at the 2000 festival is still talked about often

    2

    On Sunday, June 10, Chico Freeman Plus+tet returns after a long hiatus to one of his favorite clubs in California, The Bach Dynamite and Dancing Society. Joining him will be Billy Hart on drums, Fred Harris on piano and the intriguing Evan Flory-Barnes who is making his debut with the Plus+tet at Bach Dynamite!

    Chico Freeman Plus+tet will perform two one-hour sets with intermission, typically ends 7:00-7:30 PM. Catered meals, small plates, and bar available 3:30-6:00 pm. Advance online ticketing available through Saturday June 9. Tickets sold only at the door on Sunday (higher price than online) All seats reserved, purchase early for best price and selection.

    The Chico Freeman Plus+tet:
    Chico Freeman – saxophones
    Rudy Royston – drums
    Anthony Wonsey – piano
    Kenny Davis – bass
    Anthony Kerr – vibes

    July 5 at Gent Jazz Festival

    Tags: Ben Webster: Valentine's Day 1964, Dot Time Records, , JazzCorner   

    From JAZZCORNER: “Ben Webster: Valentine’s Day 1964 – Live! on Dot Time Records Legacy Series” 

    JAZZCORNER

    May 01, 2018
    SCOTT THOMPSON

    1

    Dot Time Records is honored to announce it has just released its latest ‘Legends’ edition recording; Ben Webster: Valentine’s Day 1964!

    In 1963 Ben Webster moved to New York with a renewed energy. He was seen sitting in with Duke Ellington on opening night at Basin Street East and becoming the spontaneous pianist for Gerry Mulligan’s Concert Band at Birdland. He gigged at the Shalimar, Birdland and the Half Note with a quartet of revolving personnel. This recording captures just one such night. Ben’s sidemen, Dave Frishberg, Richard Davis and Grady Tate were more than twenty years his junior, but the language they shared was trans-generational. In late 1964, Webster left for a gig in London at Ronnie Scotts and never returned, spending the remaining nine years of his life living and playing in Europe. This is one of his last performances in the USA.

    Featuring 10 tracks from the legend known affectionately as The Brute, this recording is already receiving critical acclaim. Michael Cuscuna of Mosiac Records provides in-depth liner notes and opinion stating; ” This is one of his last great performances at home.” Jazz Rag (UK) quips; ” This fine set is a worthy addition to the corpus of Ben Webster recordings.” Downbeat quipped, “…reminds listeners that one of Webster’s hallmarks was his way with a ballad, his horn both achingly eloquent and drenched in melody.”

    The recording is now available on CD and Digital platforms, released April 27th, 2018. The Vinyl production will be released on May 11th, 2018

    Dot Time Records is a jazz, soul and world music label based in Long Beach, NY and Bremen, Germany. In 2015, Dot Time Founder Johanan “Jo” Bickhardt had a vision to release previously unreleased historical recordings from many of the greatest legends. Bickhardt sought out Jazz producer/historian Jerry Roche. Together they launched their Legends Series. Current releases include Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Gerry Mulligan, Buck Clayton and more. All recordings are painstakingly restored and re-mastered with the goal of presenting these recordings in a modern format while striving to keep the original atmosphere of the recordings intact.

    From JAZZCORNER: “Irish Arts Center presents Martin Hayes: In Residence, April 25-29” 

    JAZZCORNER

    1

    MARTIN HAYES RETURNS TO IRISH ARTS CENTER FOR A WEEKLONG RESIDENCY WITH A RANGE OF SPECIAL GUESTS, APRIL 25-29

    Martin Hayes: In Residence Includes

    Performance alongside frequent collaborator Dennis Cahill as part of IAC’s triple-bill Gala Concert Event (April 25)

    Conversation with Randy Cohen and Howard Wolfson as part of a live taping of Cohen’s Person Place Thing podcast (April 26)

    Three nights of collaborative concerts with Tríona Marshall and Nic Gareiss (April 27), Marla Fibish (April 28), and Kevin Crawford (April 29)
    Irish Arts Center (IAC), the arts and cultural center dedicated to projecting a dynamic image of Ireland and Irish America for the 21st century, is proud to welcome back fiddle player Martin Hayes, “one of Ireland’s great musical exports” (WNYC), for a week-long residency, April 25-29, to take place in and out of their current home on 51st Street. Each of these five evenings, many of which are curated by Hayes himself, will feature special guests from within and beyond the world of Irish traditional music, breaking barriers and taking audiences on an unforgettable artistic journey.

    When Martin was last in residence at IAC in the fall of 2016, alongside his longtime collaborator, guitarist Dennis Cahill, it prompted the Village Voice to write, “It’s a big deal when the violinist and guitarist make their semi-annual New York stops.” Wednesday, April 25 should prove to be no exception, when Martin is joined Cahill as part of IAC’s extraordinary triple-bill Gala Concert Event at Symphony Space. Jon Pareles of The New York Times has said of the legendary pair, “In their long collaboration, [Martin and Dennis] have found intriguing possibilities within the traditional Irish repertory – glimmers of jazz, Minimalism and chamber music – without diluting the traditional spirit.” The evening also features Camille O’Sullivan and Declan O’Rourke, with special guests including Gabriel Byrne and Paul Muldoon.

    On Thursday, April 26 at Irish Arts Center, audiences can hear Martin and former Bloomberg Deputy Mayor and renowned national political strategist Howard Wolfson speak about their passions in a live taping of humorist and four-time Emmy Award-winner Randy Cohen’s podcast Person Place Thing. The beloved podcast is based on the idea that people are particularly engaging when they speak not directly about themselves, but about something they care about. For each episode, guests talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to them. Past guests have included Paul Shaffer, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Maya Lin, Laurie Anderson, Andy Borowitz, A.O. Scott, Jonathan Safran Foer, and Julianne Moore.

    The residency continues with three evening concerts featuring Martin performing alongside special guests, each brilliantly curated by the artist in residence himself. Friday, April 27 sees Martin joined by Tríona Marshall, former principal harpist with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra; as well as Nic Gareiss, percussive dancer and current member of This is How we Fly. On Saturday, April 28 Martin is joined by Marla Fibish, mandolin player and member of the duo Noctambule. And to close out the residency on Sunday, April 29, Martin is joined by Kevin Crawford, flute player and former front man of Lúnasa, who has toured with Martin and John Doyle as The Teetotalers.

    Martin Hayes: In Residence is made possible in part through the generosity of Bloomberg Philanthropies and Howard Wolfson and Terri McCullough.

    Features performances by the late Allan Holdsworth & Larry Coryell plus Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Stanley Clarke, Zakk Wylde, and more!

    Los Angeles, CA – If you haven’t yet got your fill of six-string slinging, tour de force performances, then we have the collection for you! From multi-Emmy award-winning composer/producer Brian Tarquin comes Guitar Masters Collection, an extraordinary compilation of hard-to-find rarities, including tracks from the late great Allan Holdsworth, plus a rare, unheard recording by the recently departed guitar icon Larry Coryell. The album also contains cover songs “Hair” by Joe Satriani & Stanley Clarke and “I Wish” featuring former Ozzy axeman Zakk Wylde as well as Steve Vai, Chris Poland (of Megadeth), Leslie West & Hal Lindes (of Dire Straits) alongside bass masters Randy Coven and Billy Sheehan.

    Guitar Player magazine editor & chief, Mike Molenda, who wrote the liner notes for this collection, states “For fearless explorers of the musical unknown, a perfect compilation of artistry is a collection of performances that pummels your unsuspecting little ass with shock waves of awe and wonder. Rather than document the obvious – or sate the expectations of the casual enthusiast – every track challenges, puzzles, thrills, inspires, and, ultimately, delights the listener.”

    Don’t miss this fantastic album, available on CD and digital from Purple Pyramid Records!

    “The players here, both known and unknown, are staggeringly skilled, and the tunes are new and vibrant. Brian Tarquin serves up some crunchy rock with some burning wah work. Each cut has something new and adventurous to add to our listening experience. Guitarists should be in heaven with this one, as it is definitely good to the last drop.” – Vintage Guitar Magazine

    “Brian is a very good guitar player and engineer, the “Godfather of Fusion” gives him an A plus! The song that I played on, Tocar Modera, is a beautiful piece of music.” – Larry Coryell

    “The hottest gun slingers around today, all adding up to an exquisite journey fueled by steel and wood…” – Hal Lindes (Dire Straits)

    “Tarquin is a great producer…the tunes and performances are first rate.” – Progression Magazine

    Track List:
    1. Allan Holdsworth & David Hines – Skippy
    2. Larry Coryell & Brian Tarquin – Tocar Modera
    3. Steve Vai & Randy Coven – Funk Me Tender
