CHRISTIAN SANDS

THURSDAY
May 4
Show: $30
Dinner & Show: $80
Show Time: 8pm



Christian's new CD is REACH

With his Mack Avenue records debut CD “Reach” due for a Spring 2017 release, this young Steinway Artist and five-time Grammy Nominee takes his place as a leader and an emerging jazz force. He brings a fresh look at the entire language of jazz.

A deeply rich and soulful feeling can be heard in Christian’s music, characterized by his infectious energy and spirit. That same spirit is what caught the attention of Grammy award winning bassist, Christian McBride, with whom he has toured throughout the world’s finest venues for more than six years!

Sands was named one of the future rising stars by Wynton Marsalis in Jet Magazine. Vanity Fair’s “Jazz Youth-Quake” also named him as a future jazz star. He was finalist for the 2015 Cole Porter Jazz Fellowship Award sponsored by the America Pianist Association.

Since arriving on the scene Sands has shared the stage with such jazz luminaries as Wynton Marsalis, Diane Reeves, Shelia E, Warren Wolf, Tia Fuller, Gary Burton, Stefan Harris, Teri Lynne Carrington, Jason Moran, Geri Allen, Ben Williams, Randy Brecker, Steve Johns, Avery Sharpe, James Moody, Bill Evans (sax), Russell Malone, Terrance Blanchard, Louis Hayes, Patti Austin, Marcus Baylor, Craig Handy, Carl Allen, Kirk Whalum, and Wycliffe Gordon.

An exciting and creative talent, touring with the new music he has composed for his Mack Avenue debut will truly be an event to see and hear at Scullers Jazz Club on May 5!

RAVI COLTRANE

SATURDAY
MAY 6
SHOW: $35
DINNER AND SHOW: $85
SHOW TIMES: 8 and 10pm


Over the course of a career spanning more than 20 years, the second son of John Coltrane and Alice Coltrane has developed into a GRAMMY–nominated instrumentalist, bandleader, and composer. He’s performed brilliantly as a sideman with (among others) Terence Blanchard, Elvin Jones, and McCoy Tyner; recorded a series of acclaimed albums as a leader, and founded the thriving independent label RKM. In 2016, Ravi Coltrane performed in a trio with bassist/electronicist Matthew Garrison and veteran drummer Jack DeJohnette on DeJohnette’s acclaimed ECM album In Movement, with its striking new interpretations of John Coltrane’s “Alabama” and Miles Davis’ “Blue In Green.”

"With chromatism in his very chromosomes, saxophonist Ravi Coltrane has managed to cut a profile distinct from that of Father John. Nimble yet logical, he is an admirably balanced player who keeps his feet on the tightrope at all times." - Tyran Grillo - allaboutjazz.com

ROY HAYNES and the FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH BAND

SATURDAY
May 13
Show: $35
Dinner & Show: $85
Show Times: 8 & 10pm


ROY HAYNES and the FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH BAND
Jaleel Shaw-saxophones, Martin Bejerano-piano, David Wong-bass

Roy Haynes, at 92 years young is no doubt jazy Roy-alty. He's one of the greatest drummers of all time, he's an NEA Jazz Master and has received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Grammys. He's played with practically every significant jazz artist from Louis Armstrong to Charlie Parker, Sarah Vaughan, and John Coltrane.

Throught the years, Roy Haynes has performed and recorded as a leader with groups such as his "Hip Ensemble" and his current "Fountain of Youth" band. He has an impressive catalog of recordings under his own name as well as powerful musical performances on recordings with Chick Corea, Gary Burton and others.

Esquire named Roy Haynes one of the Best Dressed Men in America in 1960, along with Fred Astaire, Clark Gable and Cary Grant. Fast forward to 2016: Roy was chosen as one of 10 jazz musicians featured in GQ magazine once again as one of jazz's best dressed!

"The thing that sets Roy apart from other musicians is that he listens so well,” says the pianist McCoy Tyner, who played with Haynes in bands led by Coltrane in the early 1960s. “He teaches you to listen carefully and to respond accordingly, to put things in perspective, not to simply go out for yourself. He can do this in a quiet fashion accompanying singers or with those loose, powerful polyrhythms of his that are so magnificent.” - Sam Stephenson/smithsonianmag.com

NOAH PREMINGER

THURSDAY
May 18
Show: $25
Dinner & Show: $75
Show Time: 8pm


NOAH PREMINGER
LATEST RECORDING IS MEDITATIONS ON FREEDOM

The music-making of the Brooklyn- based Preminger has been called “impressive, challenging and beautiful” by the Boston Globe, while the Hartford Courant said: “Playing with the grace and expressiveness of a jazz veteran, the young man with a horn mixes cool restraint with emotional depth and old-fashioned poetry with contemporary bite.” Time Out New York called Preminger “an exceptional young player... [who] has made an impact on the scene.” The Boston Globe said about the saxophonist: “He plays with not just chops and composure, but already a distinct voice: His approach privileges mood and reflectiveness, favoring weaving lines that can be complex but are also concise, without a trace of over-playing or bravado.”

Preminger has not only performed with the cream of the current crop of New York-based musicians; he has played with the likes of Billy Hart, Dave Holland, John Patitucci, Fred Hersch, Dave Douglas, Rudy Royston, Joe Lovano, Victor Lewis, John and Bucky Pizzarelli, Billy Drummond, George Cables, Roscoe Mitchell, and Dr. Eddie Henderson."

JIMMY GREENE QUARTET

THURSDAY
May 25
Show: $30
Dinner & Show: $80
Show Time: 8pm


Hailed by Tony Hall of Jazzwise magazine (UK) as “without doubt one of the most striking young tenors of recent years,” Jimmy Greene has released nearly a dozen albums as a leader, appearing with musicians the caliber of Pat Metheny and Robert Glasper, and appeared on some 75 other titles as a sideman. Among the jazz leaders with whom he’s toured and/or recorded are Horace Silver, Tom Harrell, Freddie Hubbard, and Kenny Barron. “[Greene] is good for a couple of body chills every time you see him,” wrote Jim Macnie in The Village Voice. “He’s got a big barrelhouse sound, and a way of negotiating changes that make academic moves seem natural.”

A native of Hartford, CT, Jimmy Greene has been considered one of the most respected musicians of his generation since his graduation from the Hartt School of Music in 1997; the saxophonist went on to garner awards from ASCAP/IAJE, Chamber Music America, Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism, Greater Hartford Arts Council and was named one of DownBeat Magazine’s 25 Young Rising Stars in Jazz in 1999. In 2014, Greene released Beautiful Life on Mack Avenue Records and received two GRAMMY® Award nominations in the Best Jazz Instrumental Album category and Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals for “When I Come Home,” which features Javier Colon.

NICHOLAS PAYTON AFRO-CARIBBEAN MIXTAPE

FRIDAY
May 26
Show: $35
Dinner & Show: $85
Show Time: 8 and 10pm


NICHOLAS PAYTON
NEW RECORDING IS AFRO-CARIBBEAN MIXTAPE

Like a master chef possessing a deft sense of proportion, taste and poetic flair, this forward-looking heir to the traditions of New Orleans blends an array of related musical food groups—Bebop, Swing, the Great American Songbook, New Orleans second-line, Mardi Gras Indian, Instrumental Soul, Rhythm-and-Blues, Urban, Hip-Hop, and various Afro-descended dialects of Central America and the Caribbean—into a focused sound that is entirely his own argot.

On Afro-Caribbean Mixtape, propelled by keyboardist Kevin Hays, bassist Vicente Archer, drummer Joe Dyson, percussionist Daniel Sadownick, and turntablist DJ Lady Fingaz, Payton seamlessly coalesces his interests, drawing on a global array of beats, melodies and harmonic consciousness to serve his lifelong conviction that music is a process by which the practitioner uses notes and tones to map, identity and tell a story.

"Afro-Caribbean Mixtape” is a work of great rigor and discipline, steeped in jazz tradition and yet utterly unbound." - Larry Blumenfeld-wallstreetjournalcom-Feb 2017

SEAN JONES QUARTET

Saturday
May 27
Show: $35
Dinner & Show: $85
Show Times: 8 & 10pm


Leading “a powerhouse quartet” that can “hit hard from the outset and never give up,” Sean Jones possesses a formidable “arsenal as a trumpeter, including his sleek phrasing, pinpoint tone, exclamatory high notes, fleet technique and freedom from predictable phraseology” - Chicago Tribune. “Sean Jones, the former lead trumpeter of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, never hides behind anything or anyone when he plays… His sound can be bright, buttery or bold at different times, or even all at once, and his gaze can move from steely to sweet in a heartbeat. He can marry beauty and pure power like few others” (All About Jazz).
