August 28, 2010 -

Jazz pianist McCoy Tyner's distinctive and powerful blues-based style is defined by his explosively percussive left hand’ that has earned him the title of one of the most influential jazz pianists of the 20th century. Jazz pianist McCoy Tyner's distinctive and powerful blues-based style is defined by his "explosively percussive left hand." His approach to melodies and chord-voicing has made him one of the most influential jazz pianists of the 20th century and his techniques have been mimicked by countless musicians. Tyner is a unique improvisational player who has released a staggering number of albums at nearly 80 and has earned four Grammys over the course of his impressive career. McCoy Tyner is presented in association with Jill Newman Productions. Jazz composer and pianist Jason Moran keeps the swing tradition alive in modern jazz. Beginning with his debut album, Soundtrack to Human Motion to Artist in Residence, the formidable talent has challenged the status quo by combining elements that include improvisation, avant-garde jazz, classical music, hip-hop and spoken word. Hailed by the New York Times as "a tenor saxophonist with an enigmatic, elegant and hard-driving style," JD Allen is a bright rising light on today's international jazz scene. His unique and compelling voice on the instrument -- the result of a patient and painstaking confrontation with the fundamentals of the art -- has recently earned Allen a blaze of critical attention signaling his ascension to the upper ranks of the contemporary jazz world. Revive Da Live's premiere Charlie Parker Revisited is an innovative tribute to the musical and cultural legacy of Charles Parker and will be led by an all-star band featuring Raydar Ellis, Ben Williams, Justin Brown, Jaleel Shaw, Marcus Strickland, Marc Cary, Corey King and Ingmar Thomas. Tonight's show will explore the genius of Parker by combining music from his past with modern day interpretations. Since 2006, the anthem of "Revive Da Live" has rung loudly in uniting prolific, groundbreaking, gifted and versatile hip hop artists and contemporary jazz musicians in a combined effort to educate and inspire broader audiences about the depths and origins of today's popular music.

The Charlie Parker Festival: The Cookers, Jimmy Scott, Vijay Iyer and Catherine Russell - Tompkins Square Park
August 29, 2010 -

As innovators of the modern bebop sound The Cooker's musicianship continues to dazzle its spectators One of the highlights of late 1950s and early 1960s was the development of "hard bop": a driving first-born descendent of the bebop era. The Cookers is comprised of many of the musicians who contributed to the development of this sound and to pushing the music forward from there. The band features Billy Harper on tenor sax, Eddie Henderson and David Weiss on trumpet, Craig Handy on alto sax, George Cables on piano, Cecil McBee on Bass and Billy Hart on drums. While giants in their own right, the members of this ensemble have performed and/or recorded with pretty much every jazz great of the past 40 years including Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Art Blakey, Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach, Herbie Hancock, Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, and Dexter Gordon, to name just a few. Combined they have appeared on over 1,000 recordings including many of the groundbreaking and most important recordings in the history of this music. The distinct soulful and romantic voice of Jimmy Scott continues to charm audiences even at the age of 84. A regular on the jazz scene in the 1950s and 60s, Jimmy’s career came roaring back in the early 90s and has continued to flourish ever since. His natural style, phrasing and knack for bending notes have earned him a long list of admirers including the who’s who of fellow jazz greats. Jimmy Scott is presented in association with Jill Newman Productions. Primarily self-taught, jazz pianist and composer Vijay Iyer is considered daringly original for creating jazz that is simultaneously improvisational, choreographed and grounded in groove and pulse. His cutting-edge music is powerful, compelling and has earned him numerous accolades in the jazz world. With critically acclaimed releases such as Panoptic Modes, Blood Sutra and Historicity, The New Yorker has given Iyer the title of "one of today's most important pianists...extravagantly gifted." The sultry, bluesy vocals of native New Yorker Catherine Russell is making jazz fans everywhere sit up and take notice. Her unique sound is a throw-back to the female blues and jazz stars of the 1950s and 60s. With a sound that is at once powerful and touchingly vulnerable, her rich alto voice transports the listener to another time and prompts listeners to tap their feet and nod along to the music.

Tarrus Riley - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
August 31, 2010 -

Standing Room Only - Limited GA Seating - First Come, First Seated. Doors 6pm, Show 8pm. $20 adv, $25 door. The secret to the success of Tarrus Riley, believe it or not, is quite simple – "when preparation meets opportunity", stated a self-assured Riley. "I've been surrounded by music all my life. My father is a singer and my mother is a bathroom singer", he explains with a chuckle. "Because I can't change the world, I sing for the people - this is the contribution I can make and after I make a song; it isn't even mine anymore; it belongs to the people." Virtually born and steeped in music, Tarrus Riley has learnt a lot by merely being in the environment of the music business. He caught on very quickly and so "voiced my first song at the age of 13". "I've always loved music; I used to deejay but everyone used to encourage me to sing. They used to call me "Singy Singy" 'cause I'm always singing," he said with a introspective smile. In 2004, Tarrus released his debut album, Challenges - "I was fortunate to have recorded my debut album with an independent label out of Miami". Tarrus successfully released his sophomore album in 2006 to widespread acclaim and spawned hit singles - "Stay With You", "Beware", "She's Royal", "Lion Paw", among others. "I worked on Parables with Dean Fraser and I wasn't surprised at the success it has had, but how fast it all happened", commented a reflective Riley. "I've known Dean a long time and to work with him on something as great and historic as Parables, is an honour", he also said. "Parables was a confidence builder and has set the foundation for everything else that I will be bringing to my audience".
