ELAN TROTMAN

Thursday
August 6
Show: $25
Dinner & Show: $65
Show Time: 8 & 10pm



NEW CD: #LiveAndUncut

Saxophonist Elan Trotman, quickly becoming one of jazz’s most thrilling and emotive performers, continues to stand out and push boundaries as a composer, performer, teacher and recording artist. Trotman’s playing, though inspired by Grover Washington, Jr., Kirk Whalum and Arturo Tappin (Elan’s childhood mentor), displays his own fresh ideas and distinctive tone. So much so that the New England Urban Music Awards, and The Barbados Music Awards both named him Jazz Artist of The Year on multiple occasions. Born and raised in Barbados, the native island of pop star Rihanna, and educated at the world-renowned Berklee College Of Music in Boston,Trotman approaches jazz in his own way. Blending Caribbean rhythms from his roots with skillful horn textures, his playing is full of surprises.

As a recording artist, Elan has already been credited with 7-top 25 Billboard Radio singles, from his own albums Love and Sax (“Heaven In Your Eyes“), Tropicality (“Tradewinds” and “Masterblaster“), and from collaborations with Brian Simpson (“Just What You Need“), Greg Manning (“Groove Me“), Cal Harris Jr (“Smooth“) and Lin Rountree (“As“). Known to compose and produce all of his projects, Trotman’s discography is currently at 7 and growing, with the success of his latest albums:”Love and Sax“,”Tropicality” and “#LiveandUncut“.

“A flurry of invention, with an equal dose of class, taste and hopefulness”~ Dave Koz

“The magic of the Caribbean, the depth of studying the giants, the hip hop sensibilities of being under 40–all present in Elan”~ Kirk Whalum

DAVID BENOIT’S 2 IN LOVE, FEATURING JANE MONHEIT, IS THE GRAMMY®-NOMINATED PIANIST/COMPOSER/ ARRANGER’S FIRST RELEASE WITH A VOCALIST

For three decades, the GRAMMY®-nominated pianist/composer/ arranger David Benoit has reigned supreme as one the founding fathers of contemporary jazz. But, like an actor who has been known primarily for one role, he wanted to show other dimensions of his artistry, influenced by Stephen Sondheim, Burt Bacharach, Dave Grusin and Leonard Bernstein.

The result is Benoit’s thirty-fifth recording as a leader and his first with a vocalist. 2 In Love, featuring Jane Monheit, the GRAMMY®-nominated, cool-toned chanteuse from New York.

Vocalist Jane Monheit burst on to the national scene as the first runner-up in the 1998 Thelonious Monk Institute’s Vocal Competition. Since then, in addition to her busy schedule performing worldwide with her own group, she has also collaborated with many of today's top artists, including Ramsey Lewis, Tom Harrell, Terence Blanchard and now, David Benoit!

THE MANHATTAN TRANSFER

Thursday & Friday
August 27 & 28
Show: $48
Dinner and Show: $88
Show Time: 8 & 10pm


THE MANHATTAN TRANSFER

Cheryl Bentyne, Trist Curless, Alan Paul and Janis Siegel

The Manhattan Transfer has defined the art of Vocalese for over 40 years.

The group went from strength to strength, when in 1981, they became the first group ever to win Grammy Awards in both Pop and Jazz categories in the same year.

In 1982 and 1983 the group won consecutive Grammy Awards in the Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Duo or Group category for, respectively, “Route 66″ and “Why Not!”

The critical praise and commercial success of the group’s first seven studio albums could hardly have prepared them for the monumental 12 Grammy nominations they received in 1985 for the album Vocalese. Those 12 nominations made Vocalese the single greatest Grammy nominated album in one year, and cemented the group’s status as one of the most important and innovative vocal groups in the history of popular music.

"When it comes to vocal power, the Manhattan Transfer set the bar. Soprano, alto, tenor and bass come together to create a smooth, thick and rich concoction that’s both refreshing and riveting. They can sing jazz, pop, R&B and world beat music. Once the harmonies kick in, they are so tightly wound that even a bulldozer couldn’t bust through." Mario Tarradell - The Dallas Morning News

RICHARD ELLIOT

Saturday
August 29
Show: $35
Dinner & Show: $75
Show Time: 8 & 10pm


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
