Miho Hazama
Composer, Arranger, Conductor and Pianist

Tokyo born composer Miho Hazama is one of New York's most astounding young talents. Lauded in "DownBeat" magazine as one of "25 for the Future", Miho is quickly establishing herself as a force of nature on the world stage. As the 2015 recipient of the BMI Charlie Parker Composition Prize, Miho is no stranger to the jazz spotlight, and is consistently producing music of the highest order with musicians of a commensurate ilk. Miho's music obscures the boundaries of genre and form, painting a magical landscape for the performers to create and the audience to get lost in. Her riveting performances to packed adoring audience at venues such as the Jazz Standard, Blue Note NYC and Tokyo, Joe's Pub, the Jazz Gallery, and Symphony Space show the world that Miho is here to stay.
With her masterful understanding of harmony and orchestration, Miho developed her signature ensemble "m_unit", utilizing a veritable who's who of young innovators hailing from all over the world. Now having 2 full length releases on Universal Music Japan / Sunnyside Records, Miho has written for and expertly showcased the abilities of guest artists such as Joshua Redman, Stefon Harris, Steve Wilson, and Gil Goldstein, to name a few. Furthermore, each album was carefully overseen by Miho's musical mentor and jazz composition powerhouse, Jim McNeely. Critics and music fans alike have praised the recordings, and Miho has been featured in such influential publications as DownBeat, JazzTimes, NPR, and Jazz Japan.

BCJO w/ Ken Schaphorst at Milkboy Arthouse

10.16.17 |8pm

College Park, MD US

Composer and multi-instrumentalist Ken Schaphorst leads the Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra through his compositions and arrangements from his new big band album "How To Say Goodbye".

"If there’s a theme to this recording, it’s my relationship to the community of artists who have inspired me over the years that I’ve been composing and playing music. The musicians who played on this recording include many friends who I’ve known since I put together my first big band over 30 years ago. As time goes on, I realize how much these relationships have influenced me, how much I rely on these individual voices.

I’ve also had the luxury of working with many tremendously talented students at Lawrence University and New England Conservatory over the last 25 years. And these pieces have been profoundly influenced by my interactions with these young artists.

“Blues for Herb" and “Take Back the Country" are memorials to two of my mentors, Herb Pomeroy and Bob Brookmeyer. “Blues for Herb" was influenced by Herb’s playing as well as his love for the music of Duke Ellington. In “Take Back the Country," I was thinking specifically of Bob Brookmeyer’s playing with Gerry Mulligan, and the unique blend of jazz and American folk music that they tapped into. I was also thinking about Bob’s frustration with American politics. “How to Say Goodbye" was composed for John Carlson, but it seems like an appropriate title for this recording as a whole, which owes so much to the lessons I’ve learned from mentors who are no longer with us."

BCJO w/ Frank Carlberg: Monk Dreams, Hallucinations and Nightmares at Levine Music

09.14.17 |7pm

Silver Spring, MD US

Pianist and composer Frank Carlberg joins the Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra in a performance of music from his new Large Ensemble album in celebration of Monk's Centennial.

MONK DREAMS, HALLUCINATIONS AND NIGHTMARES, the new large ensemble recording from Frank Carlberg (on Red Piano Records), draws its inspiration from the work of Thelonious Monk. The album taps into the atmosphere and orbit of Monk; infected by, informed by, in awe of Monk, and presented as an act of love and respect. The pieces generate their shapes from splinters, cells and feelings found in and around Monk’s music, as well as from his verbal utterances in the form of advice and/or cryptic observations. MONK DREAMS, HALLUCINATIONS AND NIGHTMARES is not intended as a tribute album, but rather as, "a celebration of the beauty and vitality of his music that has impacted me profoundly," explained Frank Carlberg. "I thought it fitting to present this recording during the Monk Centennial year, 2017." Why Monk? Carlberg explains: “For me, a Monk-inspired project is quite personal. Monk’s music has been central to my musical life from very early on. The clarity of his thought, the uncompromising nature of his art, the emotional impact Monk’s music has made on me; this recording is a culmination of all these elements, and being able to record this music with these remarkable musicians is really a dream come true for me!"

Originally a native of Helsinki, Finland, Frank Carlberg has carved himself quite a niche in the New York jazz community. As a leader, Frank's groups include the Frank Carlberg Quintet (performing settings of a wide variety of texts including poems by poets), the Tivoli Trio (a classic jazz piano trio playing an eclectic mix of Carlberg’s compositions drawn from cinematic and circus inspirations) and the Frank Carlberg Big Band (performing original compositions as well as arrangements and re-compositions of standards and folk materials).

His own bands aside, the Brooklyn-based pianist has been involved in many crossover projects throughout the years. Some of his most notable collaborations have included performances and recordings with the likes of saxophonist Steve Lacy, trombonist Bob Brookmeyer and trumpeter Kenny Wheeler. He has been commissioned to write music for big bands, small ensembles, symphony orchestras as well as modern dance companies. In addition to his playing and composing activities Carlberg also serves on the faculty at both New England Conservatory and Berklee College of Music. He is also a member of the Douglass Street Music Collective and a partner in Red Piano Records, an artist run cooperative label.

After receiving his Bachelor’s degree from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Carlberg received a Master's degree from the New England Conservatory of Music. While at the Conservatory, he came under the influence of jazz masters such as Paul Bley, Ran Blake, Geri Allen and Jimmy Giuffre. The music and thinking of these musicians had a profound impact on Carlberg and set him on a path in search of a personal expression.

GDS Jazz Festival featuring Ran Blake and Ricky Ford

Washington, DC US

GDS hosts its annual jazz festival with performances by bands from Georgetown Day, Burke, Sidwell, and others.
In addition to the adjudicated student performances, GDS is proud to present a workshop and performances by featured artists Ran Blake (piano) and Ricky Ford (saxophone).

Ran Blake (b. 20 April 1935, Springfield, MA)

In a career that now spans five decades, pianist Ran Blake has created a unique niche in improvised music as an artist and educator. With a characteristic mix of spontaneous solos, modern classical tonalities, the great American blues and gospel traditions, and themes from classic Film Noir, Blake’s singular sound has earned a dedicated following all over the world. His dual musical legacy includes more than 40 albums on some of the world’s finest jazz labels, as well nearly 40 years as a groundbreaking educator at Boston’s New England Conservatory.
Blake’s teaching approach emphasizes what he calls “the primacy of the ear," as he believes music is traditionally taught by the wrong sense. His innovative ear and style development process elevates the listening process to the same status as the written score. This approach compliments the stylistic synthesis of the original Third Stream concept, while also providing an open, broad based learning environment that promotes the development of innovation and individuality. Musicians of note Don Byron, Matthew Shipp, and John Medeski have studied with Blake at NEC.
Although Blake’s teaching career would soon become the second half of his dual musical legacy, his career as an influential performer and wholly individual jazz artist is his main source of fame. Following Jeanne Lee’s departure to become one of the premier vocalists in the burgeoning avant-garde, Blake recorded the prototypical Ran Blake Plays Solo Piano (ESP) in 1965. The recording showed a clear refinement of Blake’s style of reinventing popular standards by incorporating his other influences from Film Noir, gospel, his favorite pianist Thelonious Monk, and composers like Stravinsky, Prokofiev, and Messaien. His reputation as the major Third Stream pianist, and later an educator, soon followed, as he could improvise just as easily on a jazz chord progression as a twelve-tone row.

Ricky Ford

Born 4 March 1954, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Ford started to play drums, then changed to tenor saxophone at the age of 15, inspired by Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Ran Blake heard him playing in a Boston Club and persuaded him to study music at the New England Conservatory. (Blake later invited him to play on several albums too, including Rapport, Short Life Of Barbara Monk and That Certain Feeling). In 1974 Ford joined the Duke Ellington Orchestra under the leadership of Mercer Ellington and in 1976 he replaced George Adams in the Charles Mingus group, recording on Three Or Four Shades of Blue and Me Myself An Eye. In the late 70s and early 80s he played with Dannie Richmond, Mingus Dynasty, George Russell, Beaver Harris, Lionel Hampton and Adbullah Ibrahim's Ekaya group. However, following the release of his debut album in 1977 he has worked increasingly as a leader, often recording with Jimmy Cobb and ex-Ellington colleague James Spaulding. His latest releases also feature one of his New England Conservatory teachers, Jaki Byard. A strong, authoritative tenor player, Ford's fluency in most idioms of modern jazz has perhaps hindered the development of an individual voice. Ricky is from 2000 Professor at the Bilgi University in Istambul.

Amy K Bormet's Washington Women In Jazz Festival: Alto Madness! featuring Caroline Davis and Alexa Tarantino with the Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra at Bohemian Caverns, conducted by Miho Hazama

03.14.16 |8pm and 10pm

Washington, DC US

Alto saxophonists Caroline Davis and Alexa Tarantino join the BCJO as a featured soloists on Monday, March 14th at Bohemian Caverns as part of Amy K Bormet's Washington Women In Jazz Festival.

Mobile since her birth in Singapore, Caroline Davis now lives in Brooklyn, New York. She has shared musical moments with a diverse group of musicians, including Matt Wilson, Ellis Marsalis, Bobby Broom, Greg Saunier, Dennis Carroll, Erin McKeown, Allison Miller, Jenny Owen Youngs, and Billy Kaye. Her debut album, Live Work & Play, was featured on All About Jazz’s best releases, and she was named one of JazzTimes’ Best New Artists in the 2012 Expanded Critics’ Poll. Doors: Chicago Storylines, Caroline's sophomore album, is an audio documentary that uniquely sets stories from Chicago's jazz scene from the 80s and 90s alongside her original music. Aside from her own quartet, she collaborates regularly with bass-less trio Whirlpool and the R&B indie band, Maitri, and has been a regular member of many outfits including Fatbook, Deep Fayed, Paul Bedal Quintet, Orso, Chicago Jazz Orchestra, Caili O’Doherty Group, Dion Kerr Group, and Materials and Their Destiny.
Originally from West Hartford, Connecticut, Alexa Tarantino is an award-winning, vibrant, young jazz saxophonist, woodwind doubler, composer, and educator. She is passionate about developing and expressing her voice as an improviser, and inspiring others to do the same through jazz education.

Alexa’s performance highlights include the Rockport Jazz Festival, the Kennedy Center, the Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia, Italy, with Ryan Truesdell's Gil Evans Project, and several appearances at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival with Earth, Wind & Fire, the Dave Rivello Ensemble, Ryan Truesdell's Gil Evans Project, and COLOSSUS. Alexa performs regularly as a leader and sideman in a wide variety of ensembles and genres including Tarantino/Terefenko, the DIVA Jazz Orchestra, the Dave Rivello Ensemble, and the Alexa Tarantino Quartet/Quintet. As of December 2015, you can find her on stage with Maurice Hines and the DIVA Jazz Orchestra as part of Hines’ production “Tappin’ Thru Life" at the New World Stage Theaters in New York City.

Tarantino’s recent efforts include a collaboration with Eastman Professor and jazz pianist Dariusz Terefenko. The duo released their first album, “Crossing Paths," in 2015 on Alexa’s new label, Infinite Records. The album explores the potential of interactive improvisation using lesser-known standard tunes as well as 20th century post tonal compositions and original material. Tarantino/Terefenko can be found performing and presenting jazz workshops across the globe.

Alexa maintains a private studio and continues to visit several colleges, high schools, and summer jazz programs as a guest clinician, including the Rockport Jazz Camp in Rockport, Massachusetts, of which she is Founder and Director. She recently was appointed Applied Saxophone Faculty at Hobart and William Smith Colleges and holds degrees in Jazz Saxophone Performance and Music Education from the Eastman School of Music.

The GDS Jazz Festival hosts area high school bands in adjudicated performances as well as performances and masterclasses by local and internationally-acclaimed guest artists. Resident clinicians and featured performers give workshops on topics including brass, woodwinds, rhythm section, improvisation, composing, music business, and many topics germane to the jazz and creative music scenes. All events are free and open to the public.

This event is courtesy of the Goldman Family Music Endowment.

The 2016 GDS Jazz Festival will be held on Saturday, March 5 in the HS Forum from 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. The afternoon will feature bands from Sidwell, Burke and GDS high schools in adjudicated performances.

This year features guests from Brooklyn, NY. The artists-in-residence will be guitarist Aaron Quinn and drummer Deric Dickens. They will be on campus during the week prior to give lessons and masterclasses and they will not only adjudicate the festival performances, but also perform with the featured musician on Saturday.

The featured artist is Australian trumpeter/composer Nadje Noordhuis.

Combining cinematic sweep, transportive emotion, and rich melodic grandeur, Australian-born trumpeter/composer Nadje Noordhuis possesses one of the most unforgettably lyrical voices in modern music. Her deeply-felt, clarion tone and evocative compositional gift meld classical rigor, jazz expression, and world music accents into a sound that is distinctively her own.

Noordhuis was one of ten semi-finalists in the 2007 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Trumpet Competition and was selected as a Carnegie Hall Young Artist to undertake a weeklong residency with trumpet great Dave Douglas in 2010. She was a guest artist for the 2010 International Trumpet Guild conference in Sydney, Australia, and was invited back to perform at the 2015 conference in Columbus, Ohio. Her compositions are featured on her self-titled debut album, released on Little Mystery Records in 2012, and described by jazz critic Peter Hum as “a lucid, unified and deep first offering from an artist who reminds us that jazz has room for straightforward, accessible beauty too." She was commissioned by Sydney-based baroque/contemporary ensemble Thoroughbass, and her suite “Magpie Baby" was subsequently made into a children's book and CD set , and published by Captain Honey in 2014. Her album with pianist Luke Howard, “Ten Sails" was released in 2015.

Recent gigs include a week at New York's Village Vanguard with Rudy Royston's 303, performances at jazz festivals in Europe, Canada and Brazil with Grammy-nominated Darcy James Argue's Secret Society, and regular appearances with her quintet at the historic 55 Bar in Greenwich Village. She is a teaching artist with the New York Pops Education Program, the Manhattan School of Music Precollege program, and is a jazz/brass clinician at high schools and universities worldwide. Nadje Noordhuis plays a Schagerl Penelope model trumpet.

The 50th Anniversary of Maiden Voyage!
A masterpiece, “Maiden Voyage", is the fifth album led by legendary jazz pianist Herbie Hancock for Blue Note Records. This year is the 50th-anniversary-year of the album as it was recorded and released in 1965. “Maiden Voyage" is originally a concept album aimed at creating an oceanic atmosphere -- Many of the track titles refer to marine biology or the sea, and the musicians develop the concept through their use of space and almost tidal dynamics. This project, “The 50th Anniversary of Maiden Voyage", is to re-orchestrate the entire album and
create a new suite for a big band, celebrating this anniversary year!!

Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra Presents The Music of Composer/Arranger Nathan Parker Smith at Bohemian Caverns

10.19.15 |8pm and 10pm

Washington, DC US

A native of Northern California, Nathan Parker Smith is an active performer and composer currently residing in Brooklyn, New York. In 2009, he formed the "Nathan Parker Smith Large Ensemble," an eighteen-member group regularly performing original music throughout New York, including recent performances at the Fat Cat, Spike Hill, Cameo, the Tea Lounge, Shapeshifter Lab, The Jazz Gallery and the Greene Space at WNYC. The group has been noted for their unapologetically aggressive and engaging style, heavily informed by European heavy metal, 20th century classical composition and progressive rock. “...[a] seriously aggressive large ensemble… music that speaks loudly and carries a big stick, too." Dave Sumner, Wondering Sound.
The Nathan Parker Smith Large Ensemble’s debut album, Not Dark Yet, (2014 Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records) has been described by Timeout New York as a “muscular, bracingly intricate new disc" and as “blockbuster, even bruising, music with little respite on the program" by Richard B. Kamins. The album has been featured on All About Jazz and on radio stations throughout the United State, Canada and Europe.
Smith's compositions are devised, both formally and conceptually, to rely heavily on collective group improvisation and to avoid many of the techniques that have become the status-quo approach for modern big-band writing. The Ensemble conjures images of both disturbance and intensity, while simultaneously providing an undercurrent of ephemeral optimism. "This is the work of an intelligent and capable conductor, leading his army through a flurry of aggressive leftfield maneuvers." Ari Sadowitz, Huffington Post. Often pushed to their limits, the musicians collectively thrash and roar through Smith’s compositions, the soloists soar over powerfully churning distortion ladened ostinatos, ever-changing mixed meters, feedback squeals and anthemic melodies.
Smith has received the Billy Joel Scholarship for Composition, the Raymond and Maxine Schirmer Prize in Jazz Composition, the 2010 ASCAP Foundation Young Jazz Composers Award, the 2010 BMI Foundation Charlie Parker Composition Prize, the 2011 Manny Albam Commission, and special recognition by the Jazz Advisory Committee of the New York Youth Symphony for exceptional accomplishment in music composition. Smith has been a guest clinician, composer and conductor at the Manhattan School of Music, the Eastman School of Music, the University of Connecticut, the University of Nevada, Reno, and City College New York. His compositions have been performed by ensembles throughout the United States, including performances at the Vancouver Jazz Festival and the Rochester International Jazz Festival. Smith holds a bachelors of music from the University of Miami Frost School of Music and Masters of Music from the Eastman School of Music.

Biography - Elliott Hughes

Elliott Hughes is a Melbourne based composer and trumpet player, who combines interests in jazz, contemporary classical chamber and orchestral music, and electroacoustic music. He has had his music performed in New York, Canada, Hong Kong and around Australia, releasing his debut recording in 2012 with his large ensemble Horizon Art Orchestra. He has also worked collaboratively with theatre companies, scoring short films, and as a freelance arranger.

Elliott’s music is performed regularly by leading Australian ensembles, including the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Bennetts Lane Big Band, Syzygy Ensemble and the Mace Francis Orchestra. He has also undertaken development programs with the Australian Youth Orchestra, Melbourne Recital Centre, and attending the 2013 Banff Centre International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music.

He has completed undergraduate study at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts, and is now completing a Masters degree in Composition at the University of Melbourne. In 2014 Elliott is also currently the West Australian Youth Jazz Orchestra’s Composer-in-Residence, and will attend the Atlantic Music Festival Institute throughout July.

Achievements include receiving grants from the Australia Council for the Arts, receiving the Dorian Le Gallienne Composition Prize, and presenting a concert for the New Music Network.



About the music:

Elliott’s compositions for big band are highly energetic and bring new ideas to create a unique sound within the genre. Inspired by innovations over the past decade from composers such as John Hollenbeck and Darcy James Argue, each piece attempts to create a different mood or atmosphere, with a large focus on the overall sound of the ensemble. His music combines driving grooves, dense harmony and powerful ensemble passages contrasted with ample space for improvisation, resulting in sounds that attempt to stimulate thought and an emotional reaction.

POSTPONED: Brad Linde Presents: JELLY ROLL MORTON FELDMAN at An Die Musik Live!

05.03.15 |7pm

Baltimore, MD US

It's an open call for musicians to join together to perform an aleatoric, uninterrupted 70 minute performance of Jelly Roll Morton's classic, "King Porter Stomp".

Morton Feldman's music was innovative in sound and notation. His sound was characterized by soft dynamics, patient tempos, patterns, rhythms that defied the bar line and unfocused timbre and tonality. Pieces were often extremely long in duration and the music and performances could be classified as aleatoric or indeterminate, allowing for chance to shape the outcome. Tonight's performance applies these concepts to one of the first jazz composer's most well-known and revisited compositions.

Washington, DC

“Lena is an amazingly gifted and soulful musician from Russia who can eat most of her peer saxophonists on this planet for breakfast, lunch and dinner in one gulp. She can also swing you into bad health with any musical offering she wishes to perform."

Keith Copeland

Originally from Moscow, Russia, Lena Bloch immigrated to Israel in 1990, to attend Rubin Academy of Music and Dance – and since then traveled the world, performing in various settings in Israel, Holland, Italy, Germany, Belgium, England, Canada, Russia, Slovenia and United States. In 1994 Lena received a full scholarship for Jazz In July workshop, to study with Yusef Lateef and Billy Taylor, and won the “Outstanding Performance Award". Lena acquired her Artist Diploma cum laude from Cologne Conservatory, Germany, in 1999. There she studied with great American jazz artists Keith Copeland and John Marshall. In 1999 Lena was granted a full scholarship to attend Jazz Workshop in Banff, Canada, where she studied with Joe Lovano, Kenny Werner and Dave Holland. In 2001 Lena met her most important teacher, Lee Konitz, who she studied with until recently. Lee introduced Lena to the music of Lennie Tristano’s school, especially Warne Marsh. Lena received her Master’s of Music degree in Jazz Studies and Composition from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2006, where she was studying with Salvatore Macchia and Jeff Holmes. She played the first tenor chair in the Jazz Ensemble and got a “Downbeat Student Award" 2005 and MENC Award 2004 in Minneapolis. Since 1993 Lena has been leading her own quartet and trio, writing music and arranging. With her unique cultural background, Lena is working towards a unique style, her musical influences in jazz ranging from European Classical tradition to Middle Eastern and Turkish music. Lena became interested in Arabic, Persian and Turkish music in Germany, where she met many immigrant musicians and played in the legendary “Embryo" band, who she toured the Italy with. In her own compositions, Lena incorporates Middle-Eastern and Eastern European elements into jazz idiom, achieving a unique sound. She is also an inventive improviser and a refreshing performer of standard jazz material. In Europe Lena has met and performed with fabulous jazz musicians and masters, such as Mal Waldron, Johnny Griffin, Horace Parlan, Keith Copeland, John Marshall, Alvin Queen. She met the legendary jazz percussionist Steve Reid and recorded a CD with him, “Steve Reid Live In Europe". After she moved to United States, Lena worked with Vishnu Wood, Arturo O’Farrill, George Schuller, Billy Mintz, Dave Shapiro, Roberta Picket, Scott Wendholt, Dan Tepfer, Jeremy Stratton, Chris Higgins, Bill Wurtzel, Kim Clarke, Bertha Hope, Ted Brown, Jimmy Wormworth, Taro Okamoto, Shinnosuke Takahashi and other wonderful musicians. Lee Konitz invited Lena to sit in with his quinet at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in the summer of 2008, with the band which included Dan Tepfer, Peter Bernstein, Ray Drummond and Matt Wilson. In 2009 Lena recorded some CD material with Vadim Neselovskyi on piano and George Kaye on bass. Lena has performed in various venues in NY, such as Birdland, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, Smalls Jazz Club, St.Peter Church Jazz Ministry, St.Marks Church, Sofia’s, Fat Cat, Puppets, 5C, The Old Stone House Brooklyn and others. As a member of other bands, Lena Bloch has played with “Ambassadors of Light" (Vermont), Vermont Jazz Center Big Band, Vishnu Wood Safari East, Kim Clarke’s Inner Circle, Bill Wurtzel Trio, Afro-Cuban Latin Jazz Orchestra and most recently as a guest artist with Brad Linde Ensemble, Lester Young Birthday Tribute and Jimmy Giuffre – Gerry Mulligan projects. Festivals: Red Sea Jazz Festival – Eilat, Israel 1990 Leipziger Jazz Newcomers Competition, winner – Lepzig, Germany 2000 Leverkusener Jazz Tage – Leverkusen, Germany, 2001 Ingolstadter Jazz Tage – Ingolstadt, Germany, 2001 Jazz Lent Maribor (with Alvin Queen) – Slovenia 2002 Voronezh Jazz Festival – Russia 2002 Women In Jazz Festival – Amherst MA USA 2004 Lady Got Chops Festival – New York City NY USA, 2010 and 2011 Temple Of The Arts Jazz Festival – 2011, 2012, 2013

CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER: Jimmy Giuffre 3 Tribute with two trios: Brad Linde's THREEWE and SHELL

03.01.15 |5pm and 7pm

Baltimore, MD US

Jimmy Giuffre 3 Tribute with two trios: Brad Linde's THREEWE and SHELL

Brad Linde's UNDERWATER GHOST (Linde, Anthony Pirog, Nathan Kawaller) was conceived as a tribute to music created by Jimmy Giuffre's trio with Paul Bley and Steve Swallow while utilizing the instrumentation he used with Jim Hall and Ralph Pena/Jim Atlas. Before UNDERWATER GHOST, though, Linde had explored other aspects of Giuffre's forward-thinking ideas and trios. Tonight, he presents those two trios with new music inspired by seminal recordings from the 1950s with Shelly Manne, Shorty Rogers, Jim Hall and Bob Brookmeyer.

THREEWE
Brad Linde - tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, clarinet
Aaron Quinn - guitar
Nicole Connelly - trombone

Inspired by Jimmy's work with Bob Brookmeyer and Jim Hall, this trio improvises in 3 parts, dovetailing,rotating and weaving a spontaneous web of melody and support, interplay and unisons.

SHELL
Dave Ballou - trumpet
Brad Linde - baritone saxophone, tenor saxophone, clarinet
Deric Dickens - drums and cymbals

Shelly Manne, Shorty Rogers and Jimmy were way ahead of their time and created music that broke the mold for jazz improvisers in the 1950s. Treating each instrument as equals, the "Threes" realized standards and composed and improvised using 20th Century classical techniques to explore texture and development of lines and rhythms.

Biography - Elliott Hughes

Elliott Hughes is a Melbourne based composer and trumpet player, who combines interests in jazz, contemporary classical chamber and orchestral music, and electroacoustic music. He has had his music performed in New York, Canada, Hong Kong and around Australia, releasing his debut recording in 2012 with his large ensemble Horizon Art Orchestra. He has also worked collaboratively with theatre companies, scoring short films, and as a freelance arranger.

Elliott’s music is performed regularly by leading Australian ensembles, including the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Bennetts Lane Big Band, Syzygy Ensemble and the Mace Francis Orchestra. He has also undertaken development programs with the Australian Youth Orchestra, Melbourne Recital Centre, and attending the 2013 Banff Centre International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music.

He has completed undergraduate study at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts, and is now completing a Masters degree in Composition at the University of Melbourne. In 2014 Elliott is also currently the West Australian Youth Jazz Orchestra’s Composer-in-Residence, and will attend the Atlantic Music Festival Institute throughout July.

Achievements include receiving grants from the Australia Council for the Arts, receiving the Dorian Le Gallienne Composition Prize, and presenting a concert for the New Music Network.



About the music:

Elliott’s compositions for big band are highly energetic and bring new ideas to create a unique sound within the genre. Inspired by innovations over the past decade from composers such as John Hollenbeck and Darcy James Argue, each piece attempts to create a different mood or atmosphere, with a large focus on the overall sound of the ensemble. His music combines driving grooves, dense harmony and powerful ensemble passages contrasted with ample space for improvisation, resulting in sounds that attempt to stimulate thought and an emotional reaction.

DC JAZZ FESTIVAL: BCJO featuring Jon Irabagon, saxophone

06.23.14 |8pm and 10pm

Washington, DC

The BCJO welcomes saxophonist Jon Irabagon as guest soloist for this special DC Jazz Festival performance.
Jon Irabagon, winner of the 2008 Thelonious Monk International Saxophone Competition, has performed extensively as both a sideman and as a leader in an ever-expanding range of projects, from the most straight ahead to the most searching. Jon has studied under such divergent artists as Dave Liebman, Wynton Marsalis, Dick Oatts, Jason Moran, Billy Drewes, Greg Fishman, Roscoe Mitchell, Greg Osby, Jon Gordon, Ned Rothenberg, Vijay Iyer, Evan Parker, and Victor Goines, and has performed and/or recorded with musical luminaries such as Billy Joel, Wynton Marsalis, Herbie Hancock, Conor Oberst and Bright Eyes, Joey DeFrancesco, Tom Harrell, Kenny Barron, Dave Liebman, Kenny Wheeler, Deborah Gibson, Aoife O’Donovan, Barry Altschul, Renee Fleming, Michael Buble, Kenny Washington, Mark Helias, Lou Reed, John Taylor, Rufus Reid, Jenny Lewis, Warren Wolf, Mary Halvorson, Adam Nussbaum, Ron Sexsmith, Nicholas Payton, James Carter, John Hebert, Dave Douglas, Victor Lewis, EJ Strickland, Frank Kimbrough, Gerald Clayton and Evan Parker. Jon has performed and led masterclasses and workshops in the United States, Canada, Europe, Macau, Taiwan, Costa Rica, and Japan, and performs regularly in New York City’s finest venues such as Birdland, the Jazz Standard, the Blue Note, 55 Bar, the Jazz Gallery, Zebulon, Barbes, the Cornelia St. Cafe and Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola.

Jon’s conception of complete musical and extra-musical inclusion in his improvisation and composition is apparent in the wide-ranging body of work he has compiled in his young career. His quintet Outright! (Innova) embraces the complete history of jazz while wrapping it up in group improvisation, at times in harmony and at times at war with one another, while his continuous, additive duo with drummer Mike Pride (I Don’t Hear Nothin’ But the Blues, Loyal Label) tests the boundaries of long-form, motivic based improvisation. Jon’s further projects include his trio featuring legendary drummer Barry Altschul (that released a CD on Hot Cup Records in September 2010) and a plethora of sideman work, including his longtime tenure in the self-destructing terrorist bebop band Mostly Other People do the Killing.

Jon’s major label debut, The Observer, was released on Concord Records in October of 2009 and features one of the most revered rhythm sections in jazz-- Kenny Barron, Rufus Reid, and Victor Lewis, along with trumpet stalwart Nicholas Payton and comping wizard Bertha Hope. He has also recently launched his own label, Irabbagast Records, to release his own new, searching music.

opening improvised music set with Liz Prince, tuba.

The Ulysses Project is a free jazz suite inspired by James Joyce's Ulysses. The Project digs in to the novel’s wide range of themes and the evolution of its protagonists through rock, funk, folk, swing, and much more, and by using improvisation as a means of exploring Joyce’s stream of consciousness prose. The music of the Ulysses Project is integrated with performative reinterpretations of excerpts of the novel, creating a new perspective on a modernist classic accessible to both those who are familiar with Joyce, and those who are not.

Featuring:
Kirsten Carey - guitar
Derek Worthington - trumpet
Patrick Booth - tenor saxophone
Ben Willis - bass
Jonathan Taylor - drums
Corey Smith - words
and special guest Nicolas Horner - vocals


Kirsten Carey is a composer, improviser, and guitarist based in Ann Arbor, MI. A University of Michigan graduate and student of Andrew Bishop and Geri Allen, her work explores the relationship between composition and improvisation, and the integration of rock, funk, and other diverse genres into free jazz. Kirsten has performed with Elliott Sharp, Roman Stolyar, Weasel Walter, Dominique Duval, Wadada Leo Smith, and Karl Berger. Her song “Sasquatch/Happening" will be included in Clean Feed Record’s release I Never Meta Guitar III in 2014.

“Black February: Music is an Open Door", a film by Vipal Monga’s film that chronicles an unprecedented series of concerts performed in New York City by legendary composer and conductor Lawrence Douglas ‘Butch’ Morris in February 2005, celebrating his revolutionary technique for leading live improvisations. “Black February" is a film about how music is made and what it means. It’s about the struggle of artists trying to distill the purest essence of themselves into their work, and the scope of a musical theory that has the potential for redefining what it means to make music.

Musician/composer Lawrence Douglas Morris

Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra performs Darryl Brenzel's Re-Write of Spring: Stravinsky for Big Band at Reston Community Center

11.16.13 |8pm

Reston, VA

Tickets: $25 (R), $50 (NR)

"Almost no musical work has had such a powerful influence or evoked as much controversy as Igor Stravinsky's ballet score The Rite of Spring. The work's premiere on May 29, 1913, at the Théatre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, was scandalous."

—National Public Radio

2013 Dominion ArtStars Award recipient Bowen McCauley Dance will perform the piece with accompaniment as it was originally composed, for piano four hands. The piece has been considered the staple of modern dance - angular and abstract - with a score full of harmonic dissonance and syncopated rhythms. "I want people to relate to the full emotional range of the work and the unfolding of events in a less obvious way," says Artistic Director Lucy Bowen McCauley. This production features set and costume design by award-winning designer Tony Cisek, lighting design by Martha Mountain and the live four-handed piano accompaniment by Fabio and Giselle Witkowski.

Then, after a brief intermission, experience this 14-movement tour de force when Darryl Brenzel conducts his arrangement, The Re-Write of Spring, for the 17-piece Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra (Winner of the 2012 Mayor's Arts Award.) Comprised of some of the best jazz musicians from throughout D.C., the new BCJO pushes the boundaries of big band repertoire under the direction of Brad Linde and trumpeter Joe Herrera.

Relax in the nightclub-like atmosphere of the Community Room with light refreshments.

Her repertoire ranges from Bach to Debussy, Bartok, Ligeti and Berio and includes the jazz influenced composers Bruce Stark and Anthony Davis. Committed to contemporary music, Ms. Dohi has premiered works by Samir Chatterjee and Andy Akiho at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and Princeton University.

Erika has performed in New York at Carnegie’s Weill recital hall, Symphony Space, Steinway Hall, Gershwin Hotel and Cornelia Street Café, Cafe Vivaldi, and at Queen Elizabeth Hall (London). In Japan, she has performed in Tokyo at Kokubunji Izumi Hall, and in Osaka at Chuo Kokaido and Symphony Hall.

Ms. Dohi has performed with a diverse range of musicians including Jefferey Milarsky, Dave Liebman, and the ensemble eighth blackbird.

Ms. Dohi was a scholarship recipient from the Purcell School of Music in London prior to coming to the states. She holds a Bachelor’s degree, and a Master of Music in the Contemporary Performance Program from the Manhattan School of Music. She has studied previously with Phillip Kawin, jazz with Garry Dial and now studies piano with Anthony DeMare and Christopher Oldfather, improvisation with Vijay Iyer.

DERIC DICKENS is a Brooklyn-based percussionist and composer. After growing up in Southern Georgia, Deric worked as a band director, taught drum and bugle corps, and played as a principal timpanist with local orchestras and symphonies.

Since, Dickens has toured and recorded with Robinella (Columbia Records) and JaLaLa (Janis Siegel Manhattan Transfer). Deric has performed numerous times with Donald Brown, Jerry Coker, Kirk Knuffke, and Jeff Lederer at various clubs and festivals including Birdland, 55 Bar, Bonnaroo, Bristol Rhythm and Roots, Knoxville Jazz Festival, Litchfield Jazz Festival, and The Muroran Jazz Festival Japan.

Improv Nonstop Improv at Union Arts and Manufacturing

05.05.13 |4:00pm

Washington, DC

Modeled after the Round Robin Improvisation performances hosted by the Undead Music Festival, this performance will present a cross section of DC's jazz and improvised music community in solos and duos.

The way it works is like this:

One musician starts a solo improvisation lasting three minutes. Another musician then joins him/her for three minutes of duo improvisation. After those three minutes, musician #1 leaves the stage and musician #2 continues solo for another three minutes. Then then musician #3 joins musician #2 for three minutes of duo, and so on and so forth until all participating performers have played.

Many of the musicians have never played together, and the order will be determined shortly before the start time. Expect the unexpected as no one knows what to expect.

This is a co-presentation by the Sonic Circuits DC, Capital Bop, Union Arts and Search and Restore, in collaboration with The Undead Music Festival's Day of the DIY-- a celebration artist run performances and performance spaces all around the country on Cinco de Mayo.

The Performers:

Amy K. Bormet, Anthony Pirog, Brad Linde, Brian Settles, Daniel Barbiero, Dave Vosh, Emily Hay, Gary Rouzer, Janel Leppin, Layne Garrett, Luke Stewart, Matt Dievendorf, Reginald Cyntje, Thomas Stanley.

Composer/arranger Gil Evans was influential in the development of cool jazz, modal jazz, free jazz and jazz fusion, working with Miles Davis in a series of large ensemble Columbia albums including "Porgy and Bess" and "Sketches of Spain" and working with his own groups. His early career includes work with Claude Thornhill's Orchestra, the Miles Davis Nonet and after 1957, a series of projects under his own name, featuring Steve Lacy, Cannonball Adderley, Jimmy Cleveland, and Kenny Burrell as featured soloists. He worked with artists outside jazz, most notably David Bowie, Sting and the Police, and a recording of music by Jimi Hendrix.

Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra with special guest, baritone saxophonist Frank Basile at the Historic Bohemian Caverns

02.20.12 |8pm and 945pm

Washington, DC

Frank Basile is quickly becoming one of New York’s busiest and most in-demand baritone saxophonists. Since moving to New York in 2001, Basile has been heard with The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, The Dizzy Gillespie All Star Big Band, The Jimmy Heath Big Band, The Dave Holland Big Band, The Joe Lovano Nonet, Michael Bublé, The Christian McBride Big Band, Pablo Mayor’s Folklore Urbano, The Richie Vitale Quintet, The Chris Byars Octet, The Bob Mintzer Big Band, The Jon Faddis Jazz Orchestra, Dennis Mackrell's Manhattan Symphony Jazz Orchestra, and The Jason Lindner Ensemble, among others.

Born in Illinois in 1978 and raised in Nebraska, Frank Basile began his musical studies in grade school. After four years on clarinet and alto saxophone, he made a permanent switch to the baritone saxophone. Once in high school, Basile’s interest in jazz began to grow and, with the help and encouragement of his parents, he sought out further instruction on the ins and outs of this great music. Basile was soon playing in numerous big bands and combos throughout the Omaha area. His senior year in high school, he won the Nebraska Jazz Orchestra’s first annual Young Artist Competition.

Basile decided to continue studying music in college, and he enrolled at the University of North Texas. While at UNT, Basile played in the world-renowned One O’clock Lab Band for six consecutive semesters. In the 1999-2000 school year, Basile was named UNT’s Outstanding Undergraduate Student in Jazz Studies. Basile was also a recipient of a Downbeat Student Music Award in 2001 in the Jazz Instrumentalist category.

After graduating with honors and a bachelor’s degree in Jazz Studies from UNT, Basile moved to New York in the summer of 2001 as a selected member of the first Jazz Studies program at the Juilliard School.

When not appearing as a sideman, Basile can be heard with his quintet, which performs regularly throughout the city.

"Jazz At The Atlas" Presents: Grachan Moncur III with the Brad Linde Ensemble at the Atlas Performing Arts Center

12.07.11 |8pm

Washington, DC

Trombonist/composer Grachan Moncur III is supported by the Brad Linde Ensemble in a performance of Moncur originals arranged by Mark Masters and Grachan Moncur III.

Grachan Moncur III was born in New York City at Sydenham Hospital on June 3, 1937 into a musical family that included his Uncle Al Cooper, leader of the Savoy Sultans, and Grachan's father, Grachan Brother Moncur II who played bass as a member of Savoy Sultans. His father also played with such notables as Billie Holiday, Diana Washington, and pianist Teddy Wilson among others.
During the Jackie McLean/Grachan Moncur III era, historical Jazz albums were recorded, One Step Beyond, Evolution, Destination Out, Some Other Stuff, and the classic jazz series double album Hipnosis, were all recorded during this period of Grachan's development. These albums on the Blue Note label featured Grachan as a trombonist and composer and lead to the acceptance of what has been termed "Avant Garde" opening the door for other musicians to record "new music" on the Blue Note Label.
Grachan's exceptional talents afforded him an opportunity to act as well exhibit his musical genius as trombonist, composer, and actor in James Baldwin's Broadway production of Blues for Mr. Charlie. During this period he also worked with the great Sonny Rollins playing a stint at the Plugged Nickle in Chicago, the Village Vanguard in New York City and concerts in the New York metro area. At the conclusion of "Blues for Mr. Charlie"s European tour, Grachan began playing with the Joe Henderson/Kenny Dorham Sextet. After two decades of performing with some the world's greatest jazz musicians, composing traditional and avant garde compositions, Grachan embarked on a new and challenging mission. His appointment to the largest Art Institute (Newark Community School of the Arts) in New Jersey as composer in residence, where he taught aspiring musicians in addition to composing, gave him time to reflect on his past and prepare for his future.
Grachan feels his maturity has enhanced his capabilities and commitment to jazz and looks forward to future tours and recording with his own ensemble as well as continuing his educational activities.

Lee Konitz and Brad Linde at Atlas Performing Arts Center

09.23.11 |8:00pm

Washington, DC

Following the performance and premiere of the BLE with Lee Konitz and Dan Tepfer at the Mansion at Strathmore, the quintet stretches out at the Atlas:

Lee Konitz - alto saxophone
Brad Linde - tenor saxophone
Dan Tepfer - piano
Tom Baldwin - bass
Tony Martucci - drums and cymbals

Lee Konitz emerged in the 1940s as one of the few alto saxophonists to avoid the influence of Charlie Parker, creating a personal style. He was a featured member of Claude Thornhill and Stan Kenton’s big bands, the Miles Davis’ “Birth of the Cool" nonet, and the small groups of Lennie Tristano with Warne Marsh, Gerry Mulligan, and Gil Evans. He worked with his own Nonet in the 1970s and revisited large ensemble repertoire with music by Ohad Talmor.

His discography includes collaborations with drummer Elvin Jones, a saxophone ensemble with Jimmy Giuffre, duos with Joe Henderson, Ray Nance, Martial Solal, and Dan Tepfer. His most recent recording is “Live at Birdland" (ECM), recorded live in December 2009 with Brad Mehldau, Charlie Haden, and Paul Motian.

Pianist Dan Tepfer, Konitz’ frequent improvising partner, will release a solo album on Sunnyside/Naïve entitled Goldberg Variations/Variations. In this new work, he performs Bach’s original variations as written while adding his own improvised variations in between each, thus generating a dialogue with the old master. A contemporary commentary on a revered masterpiece, the project affirms the timelessness and continuity of musical expression.

In addition to working with his new trio, Dan continues to focus on full solo piano concerts of freely improvised music. As France’s Jazz Magazine has noted, he is “gifted with a heightened sense for form and an extraordinary confidence in his angles of attack." His playing, whatever the context, is a model of fluidity and steady, effortless motion, immersed in jazz history but creating new history in turn.

Dan Tepfer is a New York-based pianist and composer and one of the most formidable jazz musicians on the international stage — hailed as “brilliant" by The Boston Globe, “remarkable" by The Washington Post, a “player of exceptional poise" by the New York Times, “a singular voice" by Libération (France). “Tepfer eschews jarring dissonances, gratuitous clusters or poundings," raves Down Beat magazine. “He has the ability to disappear into the music as he’s making it."

By age 29, Dan has developed a rare improvisational gift and a complex yet deeply melodic approach to music. He has performed the world over in contexts ranging from solo piano to full orchestra, exploring a wide variety of idioms but always in the service of a personal aesthetic, a unified artistic identity. He has chronicled his talents on the solo disc Twelve Improvisations in Twelve Keys (2009) as well as the trio sessions Before the Storm (2005), Oxygen (2007) and Five Pedals Deep, his critically acclaimed 2010 Sunnyside release with bassist Thomas Morgan and drummer Ted Poor. The album “lays out something like a personal manifesto“, says the New York times. “Tepfer unfurls his lyricism in great silvery arcs, with no allowance for awkwardness".

Dan has also had the extraordinary privilege of a sustained, ongoing duo partnership with alto saxophonist and jazz luminary Lee Konitz. The two documented their rapport on the acclaimed 2009 Sunnyside CD Duos With Lee (“a benchmark of human potential" – JazzInsideNY). They have appeared together live at the Village Vanguard and many other leading jazz venues. Whether they’re freely improvising, exploring Dan’s original compositions or applying their interpretive prowess to the Great American Songbook, the Tepfer-Konitz duo achieves stirring results and embodies the notion of jazz as an artistic exchange across the generations. In addition, Dan has had the honor of performing with Steve Lacy, Paul Motian, Bob Brookmeyer, Joe Lovano, Ralph Towner, Mark Turner, Billy Hart and other innovators.

Born to American parents in Paris, France in 1982, Dan began classical piano studies at age six at the Paris Conservatoire Paul Dukas. He took a somewhat circuitous route to a jazz career, earning a bachelors degree in astrophysics from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. But beginning even as a toddler, Dan explored improvisation on his own. He played extensively on the jazz scene in college and enjoyed a brief stint as an opera conductor. After graduating in 2005 from Boston’s New England Conservatory, where he completed his masters under the guidance of Danilo Perez, Dan moved to New York and quickly became an in-demand player and composer.

Dan’s numerous awards include first prize and audience prize at the 2006 Montreux Jazz Festival Solo Piano Competition, first prize at the 2006 East Coast Jazz Festival Competition, and first prize at the 2007 competition of the American Pianists Association.

Dan has also been named a Cultural Envoy of the U.S. State Department, with recent travels to Azerbaijan, Georgia and the Czech Republic. He has lectured and led master classes at the Royal Academy of Music (London), the Seoul Institute of the Arts (South Korea), the Chopin Conservatory (Warsaw) and many more. He was recently commissioned by the Prague Castle Guard Orchestra to compose a concerto for wind symphony and improvising piano. Titled The View from Orohena, the work premiered in the Prague Castle on May 4, 2010.

In summer 2011, Dan will release a solo album on Sunnyside/Naïve entitled Goldberg Variations/Variations. In this new work, he performs Bach’s original variations as written while adding his own improvised variations in between each, thus generating a dialogue with the old master. A contemporary commentary on a revered masterpiece, the project affirms the timelessness and continuity of musical expression.

In addition to working with his new trio, Dan continues to focus on full solo piano concerts of freely improvised music. As France’s Jazz Magazine has noted, he is “gifted with a heightened sense for form and an extraordinary confidence in his angles of attack." His playing, whatever the context, is a model of fluidity and steady, effortless motion, immersed in jazz history but creating new history in turn.

06.06.11 |8pm and 945pm

Washington, DC

DC Jazz Festival with special guest Yotam Silberstein, guitar.

Yotam Silberstein was born and raised in Tel-Aviv, Israel. He started playing guitar at the age of 10, focusing mostly on rock and blues. At 15, he was accepted to the prestigious Alon High School for the Arts where he studied jazz with such great teachers as Walter Blanding and Amit Golan. During his high school years, Yotam won many local competitions and was heralded as a very promising guitarist.

At the age of 18, Yotam served his country by joining the Israeli army where he served as a musical director, arranger and lead guitarist for 3 years. During this time, he garnered further recognition and began playing with many of Israel’s top jazz musicians. At 21, he won the prestigious Israeli Jazz Player of the Year competition with his trio, and was invited to perform in Italy at the Umbria Jazz Festival.

In August of 2005, Yotam received a scholarship to study jazz and contemporary music at the New School in New York City. A month later, he was selected as one of 10 top guitar players to participate in the semi-finals of the Thelonious Monk Institute’s celebrated competition.

Now a resident of New York City, Yotam is a regular on the jazz scene, and is performing around the globe with such greats as Benny Golson, Curtis Fuller, Louis Hayes, Jimmy Heath, Frank Wess, Al Jerreau, Paquito D'Rivera, Monty Alexander, Dee Dee Bridgewater, James Spaulding, Roy Hargrove, Pat Martino, Greg Hutchinson, Antonio Hart, Slide Hampton, the Dizzy Gillespie All-Stars—and the late James Moody, who was an early advocate, friend and mentor.

In 2010, Yotam was signed by Jazz Legacy Productions to record his most recent CD, Resonance, with Aaron Goldberg, Christian McBride, Greg Hutchinson and Roy Hargrove. The album reached #3 on the JazzWeek charts and #1 on the Music Choice chart.

After playing in army bands from 1945 - 1947 nd the in Hollywood from '47 - '48, Brown moved to New York. He worked with Tristano and fellow pupils and associates Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh from 1955 - 1957. During that time he also recorded a session fo Vanguard and worked with Ronnie Ball, plus a date in Hollywood with Marsh. He later returned to New York and worked extensively in clubs. Brown recorded with Konitz in 1959, and again in 1976, while heading his own group in the late '70s.

Ted Brown was a long term student of Lennie Tristano and played and recorded with Warne Marsh during the 1950’s. Ted is still actively playing in and around New York City, and has toured with Lee Konitz in Europe and played in Holland with Hod O’Brien. In January 2007 Ted recorded for the Danish record label SteepleChase with guitarist Steve Lamattina and bassist Dennis Irwin and this recording has just been released on SteepleChase SCCD 31628 under the title “Shades Of Brown".

Washington, DC

Alto saxophone icon Lee Konitz performs the "Birth of the Cool" and music by Lennie Tristano/Lee Konitz with a big band edition of the Brad Linde Ensemble.

About Lee Konitz:
Generally considered one of the driving forces of Cool Jazz, Konitz has also performed successfully in bebop and avant-garde settings. Konitz was one of the few altoists to retain a distinctive sound in the 40s, when Charlie Parker exercised a tremendous influence on other players.
Konitz, like other students of pianist and theoretician Lennie Tristano, was noted for improvising long, melodic lines with the rhythmic interest coming from odd accents, or odd note groupings suggestive of the imposition of one time signature over another.
Konitz's association with the Cool Jazz movement of the 1940s and 50s, includes participation in Miles Davis' epochal Birth of the Cool sessions, and his work with Lennie Tristano came from the same period. During his long career, Konitz has played with musicians from a wide variety of jazz styles. (wikipedia.org)

His newest release is with pianist Dan Tepfer, "Duos with Lee" (Sunnyside 2009).

The University of the Streets was incorporated in 1969 as a non-profit educational organization, spearheaded by Muhammad Salahuddeen. Over the past 40 years U.O.T.S. has been committed to addressing the educational, vocational and cultural needs of the community. Initially, U.O.T.S was launched to help "deprived" youngsters break out of a hopeless poverty-cycle, although, the target population has expanded with respect to age, and diversity, over the years due to historical and economic impact. In the past 40 years countless lives have been turned around. Many of our graduates have gone on to achieve amazing successes, a fact in which we take considerable pride. We, at U.O.T.S., have also gained a wealth of varied and challenging experience; experience which has taught us many valuable lessons about educating young people. U.O.T.S. continues a forerunner in establishing innovative approaches to teaching.

About Eddie Bert:
Trombonist Eddie Bert's career spans nearly seven decades of Jazz, from big bands to bebop and beyond. In addition to being a Jazz musician who's played with one and all, he's been a regular in Broadway show bands, and a first call studio player and has had musical relationships with Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Coleman Hawkins, Woody Herman, Stan Kenton, Machito, Tito Puente, Benny Goodman, Thad Jones and Mel Lewis.

Eddie was a participant at two major Town Hall events: Thelonious Monk's triumphant 1959 concert, and Charles Mingus' calamitous, self-presented event in 1962.

Eddie Bert was born in Yonkers, New York on May 16, 1922.
In addition to the trombone, Eddie also experimented with the tenor sax, thanks to Lester Young--he heard a radio broadcast of the Basie band in the late 1930's and was seized with wonder of Pres' solos. "Pres is the reason I try to play tenor style on the trombone," he believes. "I love that feeling he had, which sax players seem to achieve better than anyone. I particularly liked his playing on those 1936 Jones-Smith Incorporated recordings, the group that featured Pres along with Count Basie, Walter Page and Jo Jones."
In New York, Eddie began making all kinds of gigs. At Nola Studios, he rehearsed four times with Miles Davis' ten-piece Birth of the Cool ensemble. But when he "went there for the fifth time, Kai Winding was the trombone player.
Eddie also worked regularly with his own Jazz group. Osie Johnson, Milt Hinton and Hank Jones were known as the New York rhythm section. His group did an album for Savoy called 'Musician of the Year,' after Metronome magazine nominated him as one of the musicians of the year in 1955, along with John LaPorta, Bud Shank and Barry Kessell. The recording had Hank Jones on piano and Kenny Clarke on drums. He started rehearsing and working with Mingus' Jazz Workshop along with Art Farmer, John LaPorta, Teo Macero and Teddy Charles.
In 1954, Eddie recorded with the father of the modern Jazz saxophone, Coleman Hawkins.
Eddie first met Thelonious Monk when he was hired for a Steve Allen show on which Monk also played in the mid'50s. Monk remembered Eddie from that show and hired him for a ten-piece band Monk assembled for his historic Town Hall concert, as well for his 1963 Philharmonic Hall Concert, four years later.

Pianist Dan Tepfer with the Brad Linde Quartet at Twins Jazz

Washington, DC

Brad Linde Quartet is joined by pianist Dan Tepfer. With Tony Martucci-drums, Tom Baldwin-bass and Sarah Hughes-alto saxophone.

About Dan Tepfer:
Critics have called New York-based pianist/composer Dan Tepfer "brilliant" (the New York Times), "impressive" (the Boston Globe) and "certainly among those clearly willing to play with familiar formulas and take new approaches, even as he incorporates strokes from the masters (Jazzreview.com). While he has played with some of the great names in jazz — Lee Konitz, Steve Lacy, Paul Motian, Ralph Towner, to name a few — he strives to create music that is distinctly of our time. The young artist’s breadth and talent have won recognition in the form of the first prize and audience prize at the 2006 Montreux Jazz Festival Solo Piano Competition, the first prize at the 2006 East Coast Jazz Festival Competition, and the first prize at the 2007 competition of the American Pianists Association — leading him to be named the 2007-2009 Cole Porter Fellow in Jazz.

Recent collaborations include a duo project with saxophonist Lee Konitz,
with whom he has been performing since early 2007, as well as a string of
engagements with saxophonist Charles McPherson’s quartet. As a leader,
he tours internationally with his trio and has been named a Cultural Envoy
of the U.S. State Department, with recent travels to Azerbaijan, Georgia,
Czech Republic and Korea. He is also a classical composer. His piece Solo
Blues for Violin and Piano was recently premiered at Carnegie Hall, and he
is currently working on a concerto for improvising piano and orchestra to
be premiered in the fall of this year.

About Ted Brown:
Cool-influenced tenor saxophonist who once studied under Lennie Tristano. Brown learned banjo and violin from his father, and clarinet and tenor sax from his uncle. After playing in army bands from 1945 - 1947 nd the in Hollywood from '47 - '48, Brown moved to New York. He worked with Tristano and fellow pupils and associates Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh from 1955 - 1957. During that time he also recorded a session fo Vanguard and worked with Ronnie Ball, plus a date in Hollywood with Marsh. He later returned to New York and worked extensively in clubs. Brown recorded with Konitz in 1959, and again in 1976, while heading his own group in the late '70s.

Ted Brown was a long term student of Lennie Tristano and played and recorded with Warne Marsh during the 1950’s. Ted is still actively playing in and around New York City, and has toured with Lee Konitz in Europe and played in Holland with Hod O’Brien. In January 2007 Ted recorded for the Danish record label SteepleChase with guitarist Steve Lamattina and bassist Dennis Irwin and this recording has just been released on SteepleChase SCCD 31628 under the title “Shades Of Brown".
