Elliot Mason

“Before, Now and After” Album Release Celebration

With trombonist Elliot Mason, and special guests to be announced

Trombonist Elliot Mason is a leading voice on his instrument and a member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis (JLCO). Tonight’s performance celebrates the release of his debut solo album as a leader, Before, Now and After. As the title suggests, the record reflects on Mason’s most important musical influences, while adding a fresh vision and 21st century insight to them. This takes shape in several ways; in addition to brand new compositions “embodying emotions from favorite recordings,” he also explores specific compositions by John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, McCoy Tyner, Lee Morgan, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and Juan Tizol, among others—in each case, borrowing a key component from the original while exploring other aspects of the piece with a new perspective. Sometimes this means preserving the original melody while broadening the soundscape, whereas on other tunes he’ll keep elements of the song’s foundation and write entirely new melodies. It’s an anticipated debut that will offer valuable insight into the past, present, and future of one of jazz’s most talented instrumentalists. There’s always some extra energy at Dizzy’s Club when a JLCO member is playing, and Mason’s list of guest artists will bring this show to the next level.
