Billy Childs – Map to the Treasure: Reimagining Laura Nyro - Jazz Standard
July 12, 2019 - New York

All of us at Jazz Standard are delighted to welcome back five–time GRAMMY Award winner Billy Childs, a musician held in the highest esteem for his prodigious skills as a pianist, composer, and arrang­er. Childs began his remarkable career as an apprentice musician with the bands of Freddie Hubbard and J.J. Johnson in the late Seventies and early Eighties. In 1988, he launched his recording career as a leader with Take For Example, This...– the first of his four criti­cally acclaimed albums for Windham Hill Jazz. For this much–anticipated engagement, Billy and band – including the exceptional vocalists Alicia Olatuja and Kate McGarry – will revisit the 2014 Sony Masterworks album Map to the Treasure: Reimagining Laura Nyro. In his Rolling Stone review (9.9.2014), Dave DiMartino wrote: "This polished product, the work of jazz pianist Billy Childs, spotlights many of Nyro's best songs via Childs' creative orchestrations and the marvelous guest performers…Highly recommended." Billy Childs' latest album, Rebirth(Mack Avenue), marks "a return to the snaking quickfire hard–bop Childs played in the '70s, al­beit infused with all the musics he has visited so intelligently since…It's ultra–s...

"His progressive, assured, and imaginative improvisations roll out in a glorious sun-splashed tone… he seems to dance through his solos, balancing his quick clockwork technique with bursts of bluesy soul." – Chicago Reader Dr. Eddie Henderson received his first informal trumpet lesson at age nine from Louis Armstrong, and he was still a teenager when Miles Davis conveyed his admiration for Henderson's playing and encouraged him to pursue music professionally. He's had a remarkable career ever since, leading his own bands and playing in the groups of Herbie Hancock, Pharaoh Sanders, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, Dexter Gordon, Roy Haynes, Max Roach, and McCoy Tyner—not to mention his bandmates in the ongoing all-star group The Cookers.

If you're a fan of Baroque music, this is a concert you won't want to miss. "The words "superstar" and "mandolinist" still look odd next to each other. Yet in the classical world they are starting to be joined with some frequency … Avi Avital … was nothing short of electric." — The New York Times Artists Venice Baroque Orchestra Avi Avital, mandolin Anna Fusek, recorder

Their latest album - drawing inspiration from artists such as Snarky Puppy, Jamiroquai, and Steely Dan's "Aja" - was premiered by Noisey (Vice), and led to their involvement in the nationally-acclaimed SXSW 2017 showcase 'ContraBanned: #MusicUnites' featuring artists from the diaspora of countries targeted by the travel ban. They've since been featured on PRI, Al Jazeera, Reuters, Paste Magazine, Huffington Post, NowThis, and many others.

Lohninger & Fischbacher - Symphony Space
July 13, 2019 - New York

"Elisabeth Lohninger is a powerful performer and a highly-skilled improviser and composer." - New York Times "Lohninger's ear for melody and intellect for smart lyrics have few peers. Add to this a warmly centered alto voice, well captured here, and a complete package of delight emerges. Soul Garden is less a jazz recording than a vocal music recording. Lohninger uses jazz techniques in music of a much wider appeal. This is music for grown-ups dealing with grown-up things: love, the environment, the Beatles." - C. Michael Bailey,All About Jazz "Lohninger shapes an adventurous but accessible session that ideally showcases her voice. Dark and dense as blackberries yet lustrous as pearls, it is a stunning instrument that deserves smart, sympathetic support." - Christopher Loudon, Jazz Times

Gordon Polatnick, the founder of Big Apple Jazz, has created a weekly series that brings the most talented, captivating and engaging Harlem jazz singers together with their knock-out all-star quartet - each week a new featured singer and band. Local musicians and singers often stop by to be a part of the excitement, and our guests are guaranteed seating for both sets unlike many other venues.

See talent like Tina Fabrique, Lynette Washington, Melanie Charles, Boncellia Lewis, Brianna Thomas, Emily Braden, Seydurah Avecmoi, Irene Blackman, Gary Samuels, and many more. Gin Fizz is a supper club right next to Red Rooster Harlem and conveniently located steps away from the 2/3 Train's 125th Street stop on Lenox Ave. You will think you exited the subway and stepped into the kind of jazz age speakeasy which brought this neighborhood international fame during Prohibition and the Harlem Renaissance.
