Grant Stewart Quartet - Smalls Jazz Club
March 17, 2019 - New York

Born in Toronto, Canada on June 4, 1971, Grant Stewart was exposed to the music of Charlie Parker, Wardell Gray and Coleman Hawkins by his father, a high-school English teacher and semiprofessional guitarist. Father and son often played together for hours on end. It was through these early experiences and his father's encouragement that Stewart first developed a strong ear for melody, style, and improvisation. He began with the alto saxophone at age 10, and when he was 14 his first teacher, noted Toronto bandleader Pete Schofield, invited him to play professionally in Schofield's Big Band. At 17 he switched to the tenor saxophone and was soon playing with such master saxophonists as Pat Labarbara and Bob Mover. Stewart considers Mover to be one of his greatest teachers and among his strongest influences along with Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Don Byas, and Lester Young. Since moving to New York City at the age of 19, Stewart has studied with such masters as Donald Byrd, Barry Harris, and Joe Lovano, and performed with Curtis Fuller, John Hendricks, Clark Terry, Etta Jones, Bill Charlap, Frank Gant, Dan Barret, Bob Mover, Brad Mehldau, Russell Malone, Larry Goldings, Peter Bernstei...

Jon Beshay Quartet - Smalls Jazz Club
March 17, 2019 - New York

"I play music because I like to listen to music, and when I'm playing I'm in charge of what I'm hearing." Jonathan Beshay-jazz saxophonist, bandleader, and composer-says that there's no other agenda when his group takes the bandstand. Fortunately for audiences, Beshay likes to hear good music. His first role models were the old masters of jazz (John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, and Lester Young) but it would be a mistake to assume that modern music isn't fair game for Beshay. Artists such as Walter Smith and John Ellis make their way onto his list of influences, all uttered in the same breath as Coleman Hawkins and Woody Shaw. When pressed, he compares his musical process to the late Mulgrew Miller's; something that is rooted deep down in the history of jazz, but has blossomed outward into an art that is unique and new.

MOCATalks: Five Cents A Can: Making Visible the Invisibles with Si Yan Wong - Museum of Chinese in America
March 21, 2019 - New York

Painter Si Yan Wong joins us to talk about her paintings of the canners (people who pick up cans and bottles to live) in our communities. She came to notice the canners when she started jogging in her neighborhood in 2015. From her observations, these canners are generally seniors, the indigents and the working poor. They weather extreme conditions by working in the sweltering heat in the summers and braving bone-chilling winds during the winters. Who are they? Where do they come from? What does it say about this affluent city when more and more people are rummaging through rat-infested garbage to locate cans and bottles to survive? Si Yan Wong is a painter whose socially-engaged art practice invites reflections and conversations into the contradictions and the unseen present in the everyday. Her current and on-going projects include "Five Cents A Can: Making Visible the Invisibles” that focuses on the people ("canners") who survive on picking up cans and bottles and their existence in a city with many of the "haves." Find her on Facebook for more information about her upcoming exhibits on the canners as well as on her other socially engaged projects. Tickets are $15 and incl... (read more)

Through March 22, 2019 - New York

NEW YORK – The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present new work by Rirkrit Tiravanija. Tiravanija has transformed the gallery into a familiar environment that invites visitors to take a minute to sit, relax, have a drink and contemplate pottery. Tiravanija is known for creating similar installations and events that emphasize social engagement, as well as his traditional material-based art. He made a name for himself in the early '90s by eschewing typical visual arts practices and engaging audiences by cooking for them. He has continued this practice throughout the decades in nearly all subsequent installations and exhibitions, including during his 2017 residency at Greenwich House Pottery—cooking 3-inch thick porterhouse steak in his thrown custom-formulated flameware to make lunch for the Pottery's community. In Untitled (Billy Wilder doesn't like green tea), Tiravanija once again brings his material-based artwork together with his social practice.

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."
