Waiting for the Sunrise Album Release Concert
Thursday, August 30 | 7:30pm & 9:30pm

The multi-talented Camille Thurman is an award-winning composer, formidable saxophonist, and second-place winner of the prestigious Sarah Vaughan Vocal Competition. She has performed with artists ranging from the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, Dr. Billy Taylor, George Coleman, Lew Tabackin, and George Benson to Chaka Khan, Alicia Keys, and Missy Elliot. Tonight she celebrates the release of her brand new album, Waiting for the Sunrise. If Thurman’s previous records are any indication, her newest release will  be a stylistically varied mix of original and classic repertoire that highlights her chops as both a singer and instrumentalist; her 2017 live album featured songs by Sarah Vaughan, Wayne Shorter, Wes Montgomery, and others. Thurman is an equally talented vocalist as she is a saxophonist, and her performances as a bandleader are the best way to experience the full scope of her artistry.

Lessons from Our Masters
August 31 | 7:30pm & 9:30pm

The Lessons from Our Masters series features a master of jazz alongside a multigenerational band. Tonight’s young rhythm section is comprised of pianist/bandleader Emmet Cohen, bassist Russell Hall, and drummer Bryan Carter, three of jazz’s finest rising stars. They are first-call players not only among their peers, but also with master musicians of multiple generations, such as tonight’s headliner: NEA Jazz Master saxophonist George Coleman. Since the beginning of his remarkable career in the 1950s, working with Ray Charles, Max Roach, and Jimmy Smith, Coleman has been a central voice in modern jazz. During the 1960s Coleman made a number of records with Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Chet Baker, and Slide Hampton, and in the 1970s he recorded important sessions with the likes of Elvis Jones, Cedar Walton, and Charles Mingus (on one of Mingus’ final recordings), to name just a few of his accomplishments as a sideman. Meanwhile, Coleman has been leading his own groups for the past 40-plus years and shows no signs of slowing down. This performance will be a lesson from a true master—for both the audience and the dedicated young band.

Lessons from Our Masters
September 1 | 7:30pm & 9:30pm

The Lessons from Our Masters series features a master of jazz alongside a multigenerational band. Tonight’s master is explosive tenor saxophonist and hard bop composer Billy Harper. Since moving to New York in 1966, he’s been a mainstay on the jazz scene and has worked with a long list of the greats, including an ongoing role in the all-star band The Cookers. This one-night-only engagement will feature Harper alongside a quintet led by Josh Evans, a rising star trumpeter who has worked with other world-class artists like Christian McBride, Jackie McLean, Cedar Walton, and Gregory Porter.

Lessons from Our Masters
September 2 | 7:30pm & 9:30pm

The Lessons from Our Masters series features a master of jazz alongside a multigenerational band. Tonight’s master is tenor saxophonist Houston Person, widely considered the “soul jazz” standard-bearer. Person’s prolificacy is astounding; on top of being a celebrated and active sideman, he has released more than 75 albums as a leader over the past five decades. Of his latest record, released in 2017, JazzTimes wrote that “It is the sensual, slightly sweaty, blues-based groove they used to call soul-jazz. It was central to the jazz art form (and to its commercial viability in the 1960s)…When you hear an authentic voice of the genre like Person you remember how easy it is to like this music.” At Jazz at Lincoln Center, he recently performed sold-out shows in The Appel Room and played for Ben Webster’s Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame inauguration.

An all-star band of Jim Snidero, Jeremy Pelt, Mike LeDonne, and Nat Reeves celebrates saxophone titan Cannonball Adderley with the help of a very special guest: NEA Jazz Master drummer Jimmy Cobb. Cobb worked extensively with Cannonball in the 1950s, and his powerfully swinging drumming is featured on a series of classic Cannonball albums. Cobb and Cannonball’s most famous pairing, however, is undoubtedly on Miles Davis’ 1959 landmark Kind of Blue. It is no exaggeration to say that together they made contributions that changed the history of jazz, and it’s an extraordinary opportunity to have Cobb involved in this celebratory performance. On top of this, the entire band is comprised of bandleaders who each sell out shows at Dizzy’s Club with their own groups. This special concert will feature repertoire from the core group’s recently released album, Jim Snidero and Jeremy Pelt: Jubiliation! Celebrating Cannonball Adderley, which gives Cobb a chance to revisit several tunes that he himself originally performed and recorded with Cannonball.

With the help of special guest trumpeter Terell Stafford, the Ben Markley Big Band celebrates one of the most influential and beloved figures in jazz: Cedar Walton. The project showcases many of the late pianist and composer’s revered tunes in a fresh light through new big band arrangements. Inspired renditions of compositions such as “Hindsight,” “Bolivia,” and “Holy Land” honor Cedar Walton while presenting his music in a brand new manner. Walton’s wife, Martha Sammaciccia, has said "...to hear a big band's interpretation of Cedar's music has to be the most beautiful thing I have ever heard in my life… I know Cedar is beaming at the results!" The album has received great critical acclaim, including a four-star review in DownBeat magazine, which also called it one of 2017’s best records. For big band and bop lovers, there’s no better way to spend a Monday night in New York City.

September 18 | 7:30pm & 9:30pm

Baltimore bass clarinetist, composer, and bandleader Todd Marcus is one of the few jazz artists worldwide to focus exclusively on the bass clarinet, and that commitment has paid off. Marcus’ straight-ahead playing has carved out a unique voice for the instrument in modern jazz, and his music swings hard with a fiery and introspective intensity while also maintaining a strong lyrical sensibility. Self-taught in jazz theory and composition, Marcus’ compositions draw largely on straight-ahead jazz and classical influences, but in recent years he has increasingly explored Middle Eastern sounds from his Egyptian-American heritage. Tonight’s performance will be the New York debut of material from Marcus’ new album, On These Streets (A Baltimore Story) – he will be joined by guitarist Paul Bollenback, pianist Bruce Barth, bassist Kris Funn, and drummer Eric Kennedy. Beyond being an extraordinary musician, Marcus is also a community activist and leader of the West Baltimore non-profit Intersection of Change, “dedicated to delivering hope to often mean, generally misunderstood streets.” Marcus’ new album offers a musical portrait of his neighborhood of more than 20 years, a neighborhood recently thrust into the national spotlight following the death of resident Freddie Gray. With this new record, Marcus seeks to portray both the challenges and strengths of his community, and he will utilize a cathartic and uplifting expression of jazz as a means to convey this complex but ultimately hopeful message.

For his soon-to-be-released eighth album on ECM Records, The Other Side, pianist Tord Gustavsen returns to the piano trio setting that first brought him to worldwide attention in 2003. His website gets it right: “The elements of Gustavsen's work remain intact—a paradoxical blend of simplicity, quietude, and sensuality built on the hymns of his youth, a Nordic kind of blues, and an instinct for composition.” He’ll be joined tonight by his trio mates from the recording: Sigurd Hole on bass and Gustavsen’s longstanding collaborator Jarle Vespestad on drums. This highly sensitive trio leaves room for an exemplary amount of space in its music, but engaged listeners will find no dull moment. Don’t miss your chance to experience the next step forward in Gustavsen’s distinctive and truly beautiful conception of the jazz piano trio.

Master musician Louis Hayes is one of the most prolific jazz drummers of all time. While still in his teens in 1956, Louis Hayes moved to New York and joined the Horace Silver Quintet, spending the following years working with greats like John Coltrane and Curtis Fuller, and then joining Cannonball Adderley’s quintet in 1959. He has since become one of the most recorded drummers in history and one of the players most successful in navigating the changes in jazz since the hard bop era. Though his résumé also includes working with Sonny Rollins, Dizzy Gillespie, Yusef Lateef, Ravi Shankar, J.J. Johnson, Ray Brown, Wes Montgomery, and countless more, he has spent the last several decades as a leader, mobilizing some of the tightest and most cohesive groups in the business. Tonight’s extraordinary band is no exception, as they demonstrated here last year for Hayes’ 80th birthday celebration. That event also celebrated the release of Hayes’ Blue Note Records debut, Serenade for Horace, which pays tribute to one of Hayes’ greatest musical collaborators: the great Horace Silver. It was a predictably outstanding performance that left fans ready for more, and we’re excited to bring this program back for another three-night run at Dizzy’s Club.
