Dave King © Andrea Canter

Drummer/composer Dave King has become enamored with the concept of bridging the gap between American roots music and the avant-garde.  King has become a well-known figure in a number of fantastic ensembles ranging from rock to jazz, including the Bad Plus, Happy Apple and Halloween, Alaska.  King has used The Trucking Company as a palette for mixing both musical styles and superior musical talents not of the mainstream.  King along with saxophonists Chris Speed and Brandon Wozniak, guitarist Erik Fratzke, bass player Adam Linz will appear at Constellation on Wednesday, June 4th at 9:30 pm.
Anat Cohen Quartet at the Green Mill May 16-17 PDF Print

Anat Cohen © Andrea Canter

"On recordings and in live performance, Cohen’s reverence for clarinet tradition is as evident as is her passion for communicating in her own voice, a voice that channels the great vocalists of the 30s and 40s, the great horns of bebop, and the swirling sounds and phrasing of  freer approaches to harmony and improvisation, splashed with bright tropical colors.  With the clarinet she becomes a singer, a dancer, a poet, a mad scientist, laughing—musically—with the sheer delight of reaching that new place, that new feeling, with each chorus. With the dizzying speed of a saxophone, the eloquent legato of a violin or the slippery slides of a trumpet, Anat takes the clarinet “beyond” Goodman, into the 21st century, and back to its rightful place as a lead instrument. And with Cohen in her rightful place as leader of the band." -Andera Canter, Jazz Police

Anat Cohen and her Quartet appear at the Green Mill in Chicago on Friday, May 16th and Saturday, May 17th as part of the Israeli Jazz & World Music Festival.
Cyrus Chestnut Trio at the Jazz Showcase 6/26-29 PDF Print

Cyrus Chestnut

The New York Daily News once heralded Cyrus Chestnut as the rightful heir to Bud Powell, Art Tatum and Erroll Garner. In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR) for All Things Considered, Chestnut remarked, "If I can send one person home after a performance feeling better than when they arrived, then I've done my job, and I sleep good at night." To this day, Chestnut attends church every Sunday, and whenever he can he plays in the local church in Brooklyn, New York, where he lives with his family. Chestnut continually tours with his trio, playing live at jazz festivals around the world as well as clubs and concert halls. His leadership and prowess as a soloist has also led him to be a first call for the piano chair in many big bands including the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, and the Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Big Band. Hear the Cyrus CHestnut trio with Dezron Douglas on Bass and Neal Smith on Drums appear at the Jazz Scowcase on Thursday, May 1st through Sunday, May 4th.
The Wallace Roney Quartet at the Jazz Showcase 4/24-27 PDF Print
Written by Ronaldo Oregano   
Sunday, 20 April 2014

"The older you are, you do become a better player. The reason is that, not only on the knowledge side, you get older and your body can control things better. The more time you spend with your instrument, the better control you have over it. The more life you live, the more you can bring to your art." - Wallace Roney

An acclaimed protégé of Miles Davis, Wallace Roney faced criticism early in his career for his significant similarities to his mentor in tone and expression. His latest recordings and three Grammy Awards have served to dispel accusations of mimicry, proving that the stylistic affinity is in no way a cover for any shortcomings or lack of individuality. On tour with his quintet, Roney will perform at the Jazz Showcase in Chicago, Thursday, April 24th through Sunday, April 27th.
