Tuesday, November 1, 2016
Lou Donaldson Quartet: Lou at 90

With saxophonist Lou Donaldson, organist Akiko Tsuruga, guitarist Eric Johnson, and drummer Fukushi Tainaka
NEA Jazz Master Lou Donaldson celebrates his 90th at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola. Donaldson has been one of the most respected names in jazz since the 1950s, when he worked with artists like Milt Jackson and Thelonious Monk. With a huge tone and soul-influenced style that combines straight-ahead jazz, blues, bebop, and soul music, he calls his groove-laden style “soul sax.” He continues to play at his very best, entertaining audiences worldwide with spirited performances that are always soulful, thoroughly swinging, and steeped in the blues.

Chris Pattishall’s Fictions: Borges in Tango

With trumpeter Alphonso Horne, Patrick Bartley on clarinet and hulusi, violinist Benjamin Sutin, cellist David Moss, accordionist Sam Reider, pianist and composer Chris Pattishall, guitarist Alex Wintz, and bassist Marty Jaffe
Pianist Chris Pattishall is a mainstay at Jazz at Lincoln Center and throughout the New York City music scene, named by Wynton Marsalis as one of the top-five jazz musicians under 30 to watch. Tonight’s program, entitled Fictions, will be an entirely original program of works by Patishall, inspired by the short stories of literary master Jorge Luis Borges. Aspiring towards both the brevity and the dense, allusive scope of Borges’ work, the performance consists of “musical miniatures” that draw upon such influences as Argentine tango, Romantic Era symphonic tone poems, and Balkan folk traditions. This eclectic range of music will be performed by a virtuosic improvising octet. It’s an interesting unifying theme that suggests countless possibilities. On paper, the stylistic mix might sound like a lot to take in, but rest assured that Pattishall and his band members are some of the most reliably enjoyable young musicians in New York, consistently challenging themselves without leaving the groove behind. Commissioned by the Catskills Jazz Factory in August 2016.

Papo Vazquez Mighty Pirates Troubadours

Papo Vazquez is a visionary composer, trombonist, singer, and percussionist whose eclectic output includes jazz, Afro-Caribbean, classical, and a wide spectrum of Latin music – sometimes performed individually, and sometimes in combination. This diverse, often theatrical repertoire is brought to life by the Mighty Pirates Troubadours band, which masterfully navigates Vazquez’ journey through Latin dance grooves, extended jazz improvisations, and slow, lushly orchestrated passages.

Ralph Peterson & Aggregate Prime featuring Vijay Iyer, Kenny Davis, Mark Whitfield and Gary Thomas

Powerhouse drum veteran Ralph Peterson was the last drummer selected for Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, and he has since led a consistently excellent career and worked with dozens of top jazz musicians. Aggregate Prime is his exciting new group featuring some of the finest musicians in contemporary music: Mark Whitfield, Kenny Davis, Gary Thomas, and Vijay Iyer. Each band member has contributed new compositions and arrangements for this project, described as a mix of odd meters and swing designed to challenge the musicians and reward listeners. Most of the musicians are longtime cohorts, with the newest addition being pianist, composer, and recent MacArthur Fellow Vijay Iyer, who says, “Ralph Peterson is a drummer I’ve been listening to for about 30 years, so I feel like I’ve maybe been preparing for about that long for this moment to get to play with this masterful musician.”

Luis Bonilla’s I Talking, Too! Jazz Orchestra

With trumpeters Nick Marcionne, John Walsh, Oskar Stenmark, and Michael Rodriguez; trombonists Jason Jackson, Luke Malwicz, John Yao, and Frank Cohen; saxophonists Billy Drewes, Steve Wilson, Ivan Renta, Dick Oatts, and Lauren Sevian; pianist Bruce Barth; bassist Andy McKee; drummer John Riley; percussionist Roberto Quintero; and special guest trumpeters Terell Stafford and Steve Bernstein
Grammy Award-winning trombonist, composer, and bandleader Luis Bonilla has worked with such varied artists as McCoy Tyner, Dizzy Gillespie, Tom Harrell, Freddie Hubbard, Astrud Gilberto, Willie Colon, Dave Douglas, Tony Bennett, and Mary J. Blige. He’s also quite the bandleader. I Talking, Too! expands upon the raucous, unpredictable, and relentlessly good time of I Talking Now!, his acclaimed smaller-group project. Combining swing, rock, funk, Latin jazz, moments of free jazz, and a taste of the avant-garde, this music dares listeners to have as much fun as the musicians clearly are, as they work their way through these styles with precision and a constant sense of motion.

With pianist Peter Martin, bassist Robert Hurst, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson
The Peter Martin Trio consists of three of the most accomplished musicians of their generation.

Kim Nalley
With vocalist Kim Nalley, guitarist Greg Skaff, pianist Tammy Hall, and bassist Michael Zisman, and drummer Alvin Atkinson, Jr.
Vocalist Kim Nalley is already being called "legendary" and a "San Francisco institution." Returning to great demand after sold-out runs in Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola and The Appel Room, Nalley packs a 3 1/2 octave range that can go from operatic to gritty blues on a dime, projection that can whisper a ballad or fill a room without amplification, and the ability to scat blistering solos without losing her intense swing. She has been compared to many of the greats, but in the end, Kim Nalley is her own force of nature.
