Drummer Mark Z. Stevens has been holding forth at Desert Rose Restaurant in Hollywood , CA for the last three years.  His trio includes Jon Mayer (piano) and Harvey Newmark (bass).  This particular Saturday evening, January 17, they had special guest, saxophonist John Altman, who is visiting from England.  Altman plays a curved soprano saxophone that makes a marvelous sound - even better than a straight soprano sax, in my opinion.

The soulful swagger of James Carter’s saxophones has found its way into many situations; Down Beat magazine's Critics and Readers Choice award for baritone saxophone several years in a row.  The Cyrus Chestnut Trio with James Carter will perform at the Musicians Institute Concert Center on Saturday, December 13th at 8:00 pm.

The Art Of Conversation: Kenny Barron and Dave Holland Duo in Los Angeles 12/7 PDF Print

Kenny Barron and Dave Holland

The Art Of Conversation, is a new stunningly beautiful duo recording from pianist Kenny Barron and bassist Dave Holland. Throughout, Holland and Barron imbue each performance with an enormous sense of jazz history paired with a simpatico that comes from a musical relationship that stretches back 30 years. Born only three years apart, their paths crossed many times in New York during the 1960s and 70s with each developing reciprocal admiration, but they didn’t record together until Barron’s 1985 trio LP Scratch and never as a duo until The Art Of Conversation. Catch these giants of jazz at Nate Holden Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 7th. This concert is presented by the Jazz Bakery and made possible by a grant from the NEA .
