Yale Strom & Hot Pstromi: And the Angels Sing - Museum at Eldridge Street
March 24, 2019 - New York

The diversity and density of New York City has inspired countless cultural fusions, as communities living side-by-side borrow from, innovate, and are inspired by each other's cultures. From the 1920s to the 1950s, Jewish composers and musicians were inspired by their fellow New Yorkers' jazz, swing and blues traditions. In turn, African American musicians were getting inspired by Yiddish culture. The music created from this collaboration is energetic, soulful, complex and entirely unique. Yale Strom & his band Hot Pstromi celebrate this tradition with their pioneering eclectic sound! This annual favorite concert fills the historic sanctuary with music that celebrates the melting pot's effects on klezmer and jazz music.

Christopher Mcbrite - Minton's Playhouse
March 24, 2019 - New York

Superb Alto Saxophonist Christopher McBride has been slowly but steadily turning heads with his ubiquitous work as an invaluable sideman since the mid-aughts. Now Christopher is gaining respect amongst fans, critics and his peers as one of the most versatile musicians in the world. His 2012 debut album Quatuor de Force certainly establishes his ability to front a group and write his own soulful, melodically indelible tunes. Applauded for his ability to play in all musical situations, McBride has the ability to unleash a fiery attack and serrated tone, but on his recent album he explores a more measured, mellow sound heavily influenced by contemporary R&B—with a strong shot of Cannonball Adderley's post-bop sensuality–but his improvising is very rigorous and cogent.

We Banjo 3 - Schimmel Center
March 24, 2019 - Lower Manhatan

For all the innovation and invention that goes into modern music these days, it's the inspiration derived from one's roots that proves the most enduring. So credit Ireland's We Banjo 3 for finding common ground between old world tradition and authentic Americana by playing their banjo, fiddle, guitar and mandolin in an innovation fusion of styles that they dub "Celtgrass." We Banjo 3 finds a natural symmetry as well as a cohesive chemistry that's been imbued in the band ever since they were initially drawn to one another by their common creative interests. Inspired by the traditional Irish and Americana music they heard growing up, they placed three banjo players in the mix in the beginning, eventually diversifying their sound while broadening their boundaries as well.

Sadao Watanabe Quartet - Blue Note
Through March 24, 2019 - New York

A highly visible and well-regarded musician, Sadao Watanabe has been one of the major influences on jazz in Japan. Since 1969 he has hosted radio programs that introduce his listeners to a range of musical styles. Throughout his 50-year career he has created a substantial collection of music ranging from straightforward bebop to bossa nova. His endorsements for products have made his face as well as his more commercial compositions familiar to the average citizen. He has worked with artists from Africa, Latin America, Europe, and the United States. When playing his saxophone, Watanabe is uniquely identifiable. Gene Kalbacher wrote in Down Beat, "As a saxist, Watanabe's cachet is melody--simple, catchy melody--purveyed by a semi-sweet alto tonality and a fluid delivery. That he retains this signature sound in settings ranging from jazz-rock fusion to bebop, from samba to reggae, from Mozart to Masai tribal music, testifies to his insistence on authenticity."

The Schlippenbach Trio - Roulette
March 25, 2019 - Brooklyn

Evan Parker, Alexander von Schlippenbach, and Paul Lytton, known as The Schlippenbach Trio have worked as a unit for around forty-five years and is arguably the best-known group playing free jazz in Europe. Their group chemistry is founded on intuitive listening, interaction, the ability to respond in an instant and on the synergy between their characters, all capable of complementing as well as challenging one another. The spectrum of music in performance ranges from furor to elegy. It extends from energetic, forward-thrusting pieces via cool, calm, ambling passages and ballad moods to submersion in sound, in silence. Although happy to fit occasional individual concerts into their work schedules, for the last fifteen years or so the trio has concentrated its touring into one sequence at the end of each year. In homage to the tragic Schubert/Muller song cycle this has become known as the Winterreise. Evan Parker — saxophone Alexander von Schlippenbach — piano Paul Lytton — drums

Her debut record, Inside Out, came out in 2016 to much enthusiasm, and most critics (including Down Beat, who made it a critic's pick) were sure to make mention of her dramatic delivery -- she doesn't just perform a song, she lives it -- and her listeners do as well. Smolder, her newest release, is an arrival of Kristen as a songwriter, arranger, and a creative improviser. Incorporating cello, alto flute, and percussion, the album expresses the feelings of fire from extinguished to blazing in an intensely personal and dynamic way.

March 27, 2019 - Brooklyn

Katherine Liberovskaya's figurative live-video improvisations draw from a vast database of diverse footage beginning with her first a video camera in the 1990s—capturing details and fleeting moments of life around her—processed through feedback and dreamy effects, and activated by spontaneous abstract word/voice and sound events by Shelley Hirsch and Anthony Coleman, and extended into space by Yoshiko Chuma's dancing. Moving images, text, rhythms, melodies, movements, steps emerge, merge, and collide, reshaping each other and the flow of the performance, into a 4-dimensional spur-of-the-moment audiovisual story.

Ralph Towner Solo - Jazz Standard
March 27, 2019 - New York

n a 1981 "Blindfold Test" for DownBeat, Pat Metheny listened to the track "Images Unseen" from Ralph Towner's ECM album Diary and told Leonard Feather: "I have been knocked out with Ralph ever since I Sing The Body Electric. [On this classic Weather Report album, Towner played acoustic twelve–string on one track, "The Moors."] The first time I heard that, I was stunned. I'd never heard anybody play any­thing even remotely similar, let alone improvise with such freedom on a twelve–string guitar, which is one of the most cumbersome instruments, very difficult to play. I'm always amazed at Ralph's flexibility and the power he can get. He's got incredible touch." Born 1940 in Chehalis, Washington, Towner is best known as composer, guitarist, and keyboardist for the acoustic jazz ensemble Oregon: The group's double CD Oregon In Moscow (Intuition, 2000), recorded with the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra, earned no less than four GRAMMY Award nominations.

Marcus Miller: Electric Miles - Jazz at Lincoln Center
March 29, 2019 - New York

Miles Davis' "electric period" (1969—1992) is one of the most influential and passionately debated eras in all of modern music. In this exclusive new program, one of Davis' crucial collaborators—bassist Marcus Miller—will take audiences through an eclectic body of work, starting with the moment Davis first discovered electric piano in 1969. Much like Gil Evans and Wayne Shorter before him, Miller played an essential role in shaping Davis' musical visions. Not only did he play bass on six of Davis' studio albums, Miller also produced and composed almost every song on three of them, including the Grammy Award–winning Tutu. To this day, Miller is still the premier electric bassist, having recorded more than 500 albums as a leader and with legends such as Michael Jackson, Herbie Hancock, Frank Sinatra, George Benson, McCoy Tyner, Aretha Franklin, and LL Cool J. Throughout the show, Miller and his band will lead a wide-ranging exploration of Davis' bold experiments with jazz, rock, funk, hip-hop, and electronic fusions that continue to resonate and inform music today. You will experience a selection of faithful arrangements and, as Davis would surely insist, brand-new versions tha... (read more)

Through March 30, 2019 - New York

A year after his impressionistic, award–winning and critically–lauded ECM label debut Into The Silence, Avishai Cohen's Cross My Palm With Silver (ECM, 2017) introduced a program of new pieces and a level of adroit interplay that allowed the trumpeter to soar to new heights of expression. "Cohen is a mul­ticultural jazz musician, among whose ancestors is Miles Davis," wrote Ben Ratliff in The New York Times. "Like Davis, he can make the trumpet a vehicle for uttering the most poignant human cries." In addition to his growing body of work as a leader, Avishai Cohen has performed and recorded with sax­ophonist Mark Turner, French–Israeli pop singer Keren Ann, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the Indian tabla master Zakir Hussain.

Christopher Mcbrite - Minton's Playhouse
March 31, 2019 - New York

Superb Alto Saxophonist Christopher McBride has been slowly but steadily turning heads with his ubiquitous work as an invaluable sideman since the mid-aughts. Now Christopher is gaining respect amongst fans, critics and his peers as one of the most versatile musicians in the world. His 2012 debut album Quatuor de Force certainly establishes his ability to front a group and write his own soulful, melodically indelible tunes. Applauded for his ability to play in all musical situations, McBride has the ability to unleash a fiery attack and serrated tone, but on his recent album he explores a more measured, mellow sound heavily influenced by contemporary R&B—with a strong shot of Cannonball Adderley's post-bop sensuality–but his improvising is very rigorous and cogent.
