Friday and Saturday
November 4 & 5
Show: $45 - $60
Dinner/Show $85 - $100
Show Time: 8 & 10pm


“There has never been anyone that you can think of who could play like that at his age. I love everything about his playing – his rhythm, his confidence, his understanding of the music.” - Wynton Marsalis

Joey was recently nominated for 2 GRAMMY awards at the young age of 13. He performed at the Grammy Awards in 2016 and received a standing ovation. He has also appeared on The Today Show, 60 Minutes, TED Talk and CNN and has been featured in the NY Times. His talent continues to grow and his star continues to rise.

"If the word 'genius' still means anything, it applies to this prodigy. He played his own solo variations on 'Round Midnight' with a breathtaking precocity and mastery of several decades of piano style." - Allen Morrison/DownBeat magazine after listening to Joey at a 2015 Jazz at Lincoln Center gala.

DAVINA and the VAGABONDS

WEDNESDAY
November 9
Show: $25
Dinner & Show: $65
Show Time: 8pm


Davina Sowers and the Vagabonds have created a stir on the national music scene with their high-energy live shows, level A musicianship, sharp-dressed professionalism, and Sowers’ commanding stage presence. With influences ranging from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, the band is converting audiences one show at a time, from Vancouver to Miami and across Europe. In 2011 Davina released her first full length, all original album Black Cloud . It was named one of the 10 best releases of the year by the Minneapolis Star & Tribune and awarded 4 ½ stars from Downbeat Magazine. Their next release in 2014, Sunshine, hit number 13 in the Billboard Blues Chart and led them to be a musicial feature on the hit BBC show, Later with Jools Holland.

DATV’s shows are filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrical moments that evoke Kurt Weill, and tender gospel passages. Davina’s voice and stage presence defy category in a different way. Davina has been compared to Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday and Betty Boop, but comparisons don’t suffice: Sowers is a true original.

Bringing you 100 years of American music and Davina’s originals, which lend themselves to the American Songbook, the band brings edgy nostalgia to older generations and fresh new music to younger ears.

“…easily among the breakout stars at this year’s [Monterey Jazz] festival.” – Monterey Herald

ACOUSTIC ALCHEMY

Friday and Saturday
November 11 and 12
Show: $45
Dinner & Show: $85
Show Time: 8 & 10pm


For 25 years, Acoustic Alchemy has pushed the limits of the acoustic guitar’s potential by embracing a spectrum of musical styles ranging from straight-ahead jazz to folk to rock to world music and beyond. In the two and a half decades since their earliest recordings – despite a tragic setback in the late 1990s and the inherent challenges of the 21st century music industry – the group has assembled and sustained a vast and loyal following that stretches well beyond their U.K. origins.

Through it all, the overriding mission of Acoustic Alchemy has been to reach the broadest possible audience by pushing the potential of instrumental music to embrace a broad spectrum of styles without being limited to any specific genre.

“For a lot of people, instrumental music is just a sound that plays in the background,” says Greg Carmichael. “But we put a lot into it – not just with this record but with every record we’ve ever made. I’d like to think that after all these years, we’ve learned how to take people on a journey. A lot of our fans have said that we do that for them. As long as they keep coming back, and as long as they want to stay on that journey, we’ll keep doing what we’re doing.

RICHARD ELLIOT


SUNDAY
November 13
Show: $35
Dinner & Show: $75
Show Times: 4 and 7pm


RICHARD ELLIOT

NEW RECORDING IS SUMMER MADNESS

Saxophonist Richard Elliot has arrived at a very special anniversary for blowing audiences away with his soulfully robust playing. 2014 marked 30 years since the release of his debut solo album, Initial Approach. Elliot's most recent release presents the most overtly sensual, romantic and intimate album of his career in collaboration with contemporary jazz production/guitar giant Paul Brown. The title of this 17th solo project is Lip Service (the artist’s first for Heads Up/Concord Music Group).

"Quite possibly, the high point of the show came when Richard Elliot performed his rendition of Percy Sledge’s immortal song "When a Man Loves a Woman." The sheer lushness of the melody combined with Elliot’s depth and power on his tenor sax covered the crowd in a warm blanket of seductive sound. He was simply magnificent, powerfully holding notes with perfect pitch, proving once again to be a richly passionate professional." - Randall Parrish/jazzreview.com

YOKO MIWA TRIO

Thursday
November 17
Show: $25
Dinner & Show: $65
Show Time: 8pm


Yoko Miwa Trio
(Yoko Miwa on piano, Will Slater on acoustic bass, Scott Goulding on drums)

Internationally acclaimed pianist, Yamaha Pianos Artist, JVC Victor Entertainment recording artist and Boston Phoenix Best Music Poll winner, Yoko Miwa has spent the past decade honing one of the most musical trio sounds on the jazz scene. She was recently chosen from among 181 international candidates for a full-time position in Berklee College of Music's piano department, where she'd been teaching part-time since 2011. A favorite of Jazz at Lincoln Center, she was chosen to perform at their annual Jazz and Leadership Workshop for The National Urban League's Youth Summit in July 2015.

The Yoko Miwa Trio made its Blue Note NYC debut in 2014 to rave reviews. "Miwa had just as much fun sending the rhythm section away and swinging by herself as she did engaging in a tightly spiraling, interlocking web of melody…pensively spacious minor-key blues, a scampering right hand against a stern left, tension and release around a central tone, intricately conversational interplay with the guys in her fantastic trio…She's fun to watch and just as tuneful." – The New York Music Daily.

Miwa has played sold-out shows in the US and Japan. She was chosen to play on "Marian McPartland & Friends," a special concert at Dizzy's at Lincoln Center as part of The Coca-Cola Generations in Jazz Festival. Miwa has also performed and/or recorded with Slide Hampton, Arturo Sandoval, George Garzone, Jon Faddis, Jerry Bergonzi, Esperanza Spalding, Terri Lynne Carrington, Sheila Jordan, Kevin Mahogany, John Lockwood and Johnathan Blake.

"Pianist Yoko Miwa displays unpretentious melodies, elegant phrasing, and the lyrical sensibility of a jazz poet." – Jazziz Magazine

ARTURO SANDOVAL

Friday & Saturday
November 25 & 26
Show: $45
Dinner & Show: $85
Show Time: 8 and 10pm


He is one of the most dynamic and vivacious live performers of our time, and has been seen by millions at the Oscars, at the Grammy Awards, and the Billboard Awards.

Arturo Sandoval is a 10-time Grammy Award winner, Emmy Award recipient, 2015 Hispanic Heritage Award Recipient and recently received an Honorary Doctorate in Fine Arts from the University of Notre-Dame.

Sandovall reaches beyond the scope of mere effort. Filled with a virtuoso capability, he desires nothing more than to share his gift with others who feel the same intense adoration for music as he does. One frequently speaks of Arturo Sandoval’s virtuoso technical ability or his specialty in high notes, but he who has seen him on the piano, lyrically improvising a ballad, or has had the opportunity to enjoy the diversity of his music, through his compositions from the most straight ahead jazz, Latin jazz or classical, knows that Arturo Sandoval is a prominent musician, and one recognizes that Arturo is one of the most brilliant, multifaceted and renowned musicians of our time.
