    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.

    From JAZZCORNER: “Guitar Masters Collection Feat. Larry Coryell” 

    JAZZCORNER

    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

    Keith Jarrett has come to be recognized worldwide as one of the most creative and uncompromising musicians of our times – universally acclaimed as an improviser of unsurpassed genius and a classical keyboardist and composer of great depth.

    Over the past 4 decades, his landmark improvised solo piano concerts and recordings have incorporated a broad spectrum of musical languages and idioms revealing a dynamic creative process producing spontaneously composed music that is both deeply personal, yet universal.

    The solo piano improvisations on his best selling ECM Records solo piano recordings such as Facing You, Solo Concerts, The Koln Concert, Sun Bear Concerts, Paris Concert, Vienna Concert, La Scala, Radiance, Carnegie Hall Concert and Testament – Paris/London have helped redefine the role of the piano in contemporary music. This singular body of solo piano work is without precedent, with The Koln Concert being the best selling solo piano recording in history.
