KENNY WERNER DUO with CHRIS POTTER

THURSDAY
January 5
Show: $30
Dinner & Show: $80
Show Time: 8pm



Grammy-nominated pianist Kenny Werner is well known for his unique and compelling style and sound at the piano. Werner is also a highly respected composer and arranger. His recording No Beginning No End was awarded the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship Award in 2010.

“More than an outlet for Werner’s artistic exploration, the performance served another purpose: It gave the public a look at what some of jazz’s brightest stars can do in collaboration…. Werner the educator knows only too well the value of leading by being excellent.”
– Michael Barris, DownBeat, August 2015

Saxophonist Chris Potter enjoys success worldwide with his own group and as a sideman-in-demand. Potter has performed with Herbie Hancock, Dave Holland, Dave Douglas, to name a few.

Down Beat called him "One of the most studied (and copied) saxophonists on the planet" while Jazz Times identified him as "a figure of international renown." Jazz sax elder statesman Dave Liebman called him simply, "one of the best musicians around," a sentiment shared by the readers of Down Beat in voting him second only to tenor sax great Sonny Rollins in the magazine's 2008 Readers Poll.

Kenny Werner's collaboration with Chris Potter for the prestigious Maybeck Hall recording series was chosen as the best album of 1996 by the New Jersey Star Ledger.

His second Maybeck Hall CD, a duet with Chris Potter (Concord Duo Series Vol. 10), was chosen as the best album of 1996 by George Kanzler, jazz critic for the New Jersey Star Ledger.

Show Time: 8 & 10pm


Igor Butman, saxophone virtuoso, bandleader, club owner and television host, is Russia's number one jazz personality. Butman also has deep Boston roots - starting with attending Berklee College of Music, at which time he was also one of the most in-demand sidemen in Boston.

Igor Butman has released many recordings under his own name and his most recent recorded effort is a collaboration with trombonist Conrad Herwig called Reflections, which was released in February 2016

"I love Igor's Butman playing and I love him personally. He has a great feeling for the music and for people and he's phenomenal musician. Igor Butman is my main main!" - Wynton Marsalis

JOEY DeFRANCESCO

THURSDAY
January 12
Show: $30
Dinner and Show: $80
Show Time: 8 and 10pm


Three-time GRAMMY nominee Joey DeFrancesco is jazz's most celebrated Hammond B3 player today. This gifted musician learned from those before him and today enjoys a busy schedule touring under his own name. Joey also has an impressive resume as a sideman for jazz legends George Benson, Miles Davis, David Sanborn, Joe Lovano and many more.

Winner of Down Beat Magazine’s Critic’s poll 2002-2008, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016 as well as the magazines Reader’s Poll every year since 2005. In 2014 he was inducted into the inaugural Hammond Organ Hall of Fame, and in 2016 Joey was inducted into Philadelphia’s Music Walk of Fame.

"The quicksilver nature of his technique, fluidity of his ideas, musicality of his phrases and variety of his modes of expression long have placed him in a category by himself among contemporary jazz organists. All of that was clear to hear through his first set, DeFrancesco hitting hard from the outset." - Howard Reich-The Chicago Tribune.

Dinner and Show: $80
Show Time: 8pm


RALPH PETERSON REUNION SEXTET feturing Sean Jones-trumpet, Tia Fuller-saxophones, Walter Smith III-saxophones, Luques Curtis-bass, Zaccai Curtis-piano

Jazz drummer, bandleader and educator Ralph Peterson achieved early notoriety as Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers second drummer in 1983 and has continued in his footsteps with mentoring young talent throughout his career. Over the years, Peterson has also played with jazz heavyweights such as Terence Blanchard, Donald Harrison, Charles Lloyd, Branford Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, Jon Faddis, Dewey Redman, Geri Allen, Betty Carter, Stanley Cowell and Wynton Marsalis.

"Drummer Ralph Peterson was one of Art Blakey’s last protégés, and he seems to have drawn a lot from his mentor: a gregarious comfort in the leader’s position; a flaying mastery that drives his bands without flagging ... and a knack for rearing precocious talents." - Giovanni Russonello/JazzTimes.com
