James Carter Andrea Canter


Pianist Cyrus Chestnut and saxophonist James Carter meet in Los Angeles for an evening of memorable music. This is not unfamiliar territory, since they collaborated on Carter's Gold Sounds in 2005. The New York Daily News heralded Chestnut as the rightful heir to Bud Powell, Art Tatum and Erroll Garner. 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.

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 .
