Show: $35

Show Time 8pm & 10pm


ROBERTA GAMBARINI QT. with Eric Reed and Jimmy Cobb
NEW CD: THE SHADOW OF YOUR SMILE-HOMMAGE TO JAPAN

Celebrated throughout the world by fans, critics and many of the world’s greatest musicians, Roberta Gambarini became a fast-rising star – and a GRAMMY Nominee - with the 2006 release of her debut album, ‘Easy to Love.’ A smashing success on all fronts, Roberta’s debut secured her spot on the international touring circuit, where she continuously graces the most prestigious venues and festivals. In 2007, the Jazz Journalists Association voted her Best Female Jazz Vocalist of the year.

"At a time when the jazz vocal world is overflowing with rapidly arriving young female talent, Gambarini stands well above the crowd." - Don Heckman/International Review of Music.

Tom Pierce, journalist for albanyjazz.com had this to say about Gambarini:

"There was no surprise in hearing the amazing technical skills she displayed, which are virtually unmatched among living Jazz vocalists - only a limited number of truly special vocalists, all substantially more experienced than she, consistently sing with this type prodigious technique. However, one can never get used to or take for granted, her elegant purity of tone, flawless intonation, outstanding breath control, lilting sense of swing and dynamic scatting ability to effectively recreate stimulating solos by instrumental masters. This is simply a Jazz voice for the ages."

Joining Ms. Gambarini for this engagement: Eric Reed on piano, Jimmy Cobb on drums and bassist to be announced.

JULIAN LAGE TRIO

Thursday
February 12
Show at 8 p.m.
Show: $30
Dinner & Show $70


JULIAN LAGE TRIO with Scott Colley and Kenny Wollesen

There’s a disarming spirit of generosity in the musicianship of Julian Lage, and a keener sense of judicious withholding. A guitarist with roots tangled up in jazz, folk, classical and country music, he has spent most of his life bathed in a bright, expectant light. - Nate Chinen/NY Times review July 2014

Julian's solo recording, World's Fair, is slated for release on February 3, 2015

T.S. MONK

Friday
February 13
Show: $30
Dinner & Show: $70
Show Time: 8pm


T.S. Monk (a/k/a Thelonious Sphere Monk, III) is an internationally acclaimed jazz drummer, composer, bandleader, and vocalist. Lauded by critics and jazz fans alike as the true musical heir to his father, the legendary jazz composer and pianist Thelonious Monk, T.S. Monk has paved his own path to success, inspiring a new generation of jazz enthusiasts with his innovative and infectious music. As the co-founder and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, which was created to honor his father’s musical legacy, Monk has supported jazz education and brought an international spotlight to the music for nearly three decades. He was the driving force behind the Institute’s annual International Jazz Competition and many of its educational initiatives. Monk began playing the drums at 15. Five years later, in 1970, Monk joined his father’s quartet and toured with him until the elder Monk retired in 1975. In the 1970s, Monk went into R&B, touring with the group Natural Essence before forming the R&B group, T.S. Monk. The group released three albums on Mirage Records. In 1992, Monk formed the T.S. Monk Sextet. The group released three successful CDs on Blue Note Records: Take One, which hit the top of the jazz charts, Changing of the Guard and the critically-acclaimed album, The Charm. In 1997, to commemorate his father’s 80th birthday, Monk released Monk on Monk, an all-star tribute to his father’s extraordinary contributions to jazz. The critically-acclaimed album received the Record of the Year Award at the first annual New York Jazz Awards, and Downbeat magazine’s prestigious 63rd Annual Reader's Poll Award. He followed with Crosstalk (1999) and Higher Ground (2003). Monk recently released an album with Belgian jazz accordionist, Rony Verbiest. The album, Verbiest Meets Monk: Father and Son is currently available internationally. This month, Monk will release a contemporary rendition of his father’s classic, “Trinkle Tinkle.”

KARRIN ALLYSON

Saturday
February 14
Show: $35
Dinner & Show: $75
Show Time: 8pm & 10pm


"She's been described as a "musician's musician," and for once, the overused term actually makes sense - "a complete performance by a complete artist - one of the jazz world's finest." - Don Heckman, The Los Angeles Times.

Stephen Holden, long-time music critic for the New York Times had this to say about a recent Allyson performance at one of New York City's premiere jazz clubs, Birdland: ...but Karrin Allyson made it look easy on Thursday evening at Birdland. Her shows, whose selections change with ever set, is a celebration of a 13-album career that is one of the most stable in jazz. She has an easy mastery of bebop, bossanova, chanson and soft rock, to name four of the many styles in which she is comfortable."

Karrin is a captivating performer who will stand out front and sing or just as easily accompany herself on piano. She is a perfect choice for Valentine's Day at Scullers!

RICHARD ELLIOT

Sunday
February 15
Show: $35
Dinner & Show: $75
Show Time: 4pm & 7pm



NEW CD: Lip Service
Saxophonist Richard Elliot has arrived at a very special anniversary for blowing audiences away with his soulfully robust playing. 2014 marks 30 years since the release of his debut solo album, Initial Approach. Elliot's new 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

Playing sideman to Rick Braun, Larry Carlton, Gato Barbieri, the Neville Brothers, and many others introduced guitarist/vocalist Steve Oliver to smooth jazz fans, but it was with Steve Reid's band that Oliver found a following.

Oliver hit the stage as a solo act and Reid was impressed with the guitarist's vocalese skills and summery sound

Oliver struck out on his own in 1999 with his debut, First View, released by Night Vision. The album spawned three hit singles on smooth jazz radio and earned the guitarist a Debut Artist of the Year award from Smooth Jazz News.
