CECILE McLORIN-SALVANT

Friday
October 2
Show: $35
Dinner & Show: $75
Show Time: 8 & 10pm



CECILE McLORIN SALVANT
with Aaron Diehl-piano, Paul Sikivie-bass, Lawrence Lo Leathers-drums

NEW CD: FOR ONE IN LOVE

Cecile McLorin Salvant's career took off after winning the 2010 Thelonious Monk competition in Washington, D.C. Prior to this time, she had already recorded her first album as well as studied and performed in Paris.

Cécile performs unique interpretations of unknown and scarcely recorded jazz and blues compositions. She focuses on a theatrical portrayal of the jazz standard and composes music and lyrics which she also sings in French, her native language as well as in Spanish. She enjoys popularity in Europe and in the United States, performing in clubs, concert halls, and festivals accompanied by renowned musicians like Jean-Francois Bonnel, Rodney Whitaker, Aaron Diehl, Dan Nimmer, Sadao Watanabe, Jacky Terrasson (she was the guest singer on his album, Gouache), Archie Shepp, and Jonathan Batiste. She has also been featured as the voice of Chanel's "Chance" ad campaign for the third consecutive year.

"A larger-than-life presence with a voracious musical appetite, singer Salvant embraces a wide array of influences, ...but that's just part of Salvant's appeal, her imagination allowing her to constantly change mood, direction and emotional tone – often during the course of a single song." Howard Reich-chicagotribune.com (June 2015)

LEE RITENOUR with John Beasley-keyboards, Tom Kennedy-bass, Nate Smith-drums

NEW CD: A TWIST OF RIT

Growing up in L.A. in the 60’s, Grammy award winning (and 17 time Grammy-nominated) guitarist Lee Ritenour received a rich cross section of exposure to jazz, rock and Brazilian music. He has recorded over 40 albums, with 35 chart songs, notably the Top 15 hit “Is It You,” which has become a contemporary jazz radio classic. In the 90s, Ritenour was a founding member of Fourplay, the most successful band in contemporary jazz, with keyboardist Bob James, bassist Nathan East and drummer Harvey Mason.

From rock to blues to jazz, Lee Ritenour's diverse music became the foundation of over 3,000 sessions as a young guitarist with a broad spectrum of artists such as Pink Floyd (The Wall), Steely Dan (Aja), Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins, Joe Henderson, B.B.

Lee Ritenour had this to say about his new release A Twist of the Rit - "“The concept for A Twist of Rit combines new material and tunes selected from earlier albums. We twisted, flipped and reconstructed those songs with a twelve-piece band. Several of the songs are from my very first album, First Course, recorded in 1975 and the Rit album in 1980.”

The band immediately became a featured act in Miami’s premiere live music venues, concerts, festivals and events. The winner of Miami New Times’ BEST LATIN BAND 2014, PALO! has performed for packed houses in Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, and New York.

REGINA CARTER'S SOUTHERN COMFORT

Friday & Saturday
October 16 & 17
Show: $38
Dinner & Show: $78
Show Time: 8 & 10pm


REGINA CARTER'S SOUTHERN COMFORT
with: Scott Amendola-drums, Marvin Sewall-guitar, Chris Lightcap-bass, Will Holshouser-accordian

Violinist Regina Carter is considered the foremost jazz violinist of her generation — a designation which doesn’t quite paint the picture. For Regina, the violin isn’t merely an improvisational vehicle. It’s a passport to unexpected realms, a Rosetta stone that unlocks the door to a myriad of cultures and worlds.

As a result of her curiosity, passion, and quest for beauty brought to every stop taken on her full musical journey, Regina was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (a “genius grant”). Those qualities are more apparent than ever on her critically acclaimed release, Southern Comfort (Sony Music Masterworks), on which she explores the folk music of the South.

Southern Comfort thematically connects Carter’s earlier albums I’ll Be Seeing You: A Sentimental Journey, which features her mother’s favorite early jazz standards; and Reverse Thread, which celebrates the tradition of African music re-imagined for violin, accordion, bass, drums and kora. On her new album she explores the folk tunes her paternal grandfather, a coalminer, would have heard as he toiled in Alabama – and the project expanded to include other folk tunes of the region.

Regina Carter creates music that is wonderfully listenable, probingly intelligent and, at times, breathtakingly daring…taking the listener into the future of jazz. - Time Magazine
