Jimmy Greene Quartet (friday)

GRAMMY® Award-nominated saxophonist, composer, and arranger Jimmy Greene wrote and recorded an album four years ago that no parent should ever have to make – Beautiful Life celebrated the life of Ana Márquez-Greene, his 6-year-old daughter that was murdered along with 19 other children and six educators on December 14, 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Now, Greene continues to honor and memorialize her spirit with Flowers, his second release for Mack Avenue Records.

As on his acclaimed Mack Avenue debut, Beautiful Life, a poignant, reflective program that honored his daughter’s love of singing with a program combining jazz, spirituals, contemporary Christian music and ballads, Greene again fulfills his stated imperative of “reflecting the way that Ana lived.” Here, Greene hones in on Ana’s love of dance with a kinetic, groove-filled program comprising ten original compositions—including two Greene-penned lyrics—and his arrangement of the “new standard,” “Something About You.”

Feeding the fire on six tracks is Jimmy Greene’s Love In Action, a unit comprising veteran all-stars Renee Rosnes on piano and Fender Rhodes, bassist John Patitucci and drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts, with Rogerio Boccato on an array of percussion instruments, and, on three selections, next-generation guitar hero Mike Moreno. Raising a joyful noise on the other five pieces is Greene’s quartet, with first-callers including keyboardist Kevin Hays, bassist Ben Williams, and drummer Otis Brown, III. Greene himself solos on tenor and soprano saxophone with melodic focus, harmonic ingenuity and soulful authority.

A native of Hartford, CT, Greene is considered one of the most respected saxophonists of his generation since his graduation from the Hartt School of Music in 1997. His previous solo releases, GRAMMY® Nominated Beautiful Life (Mack Avenue), Live at Smalls (SmallsLive), Mission Statement (RazDaz/Sunnyside), The Overcomers Suite (NuJazz), Gifts and Givers (Criss Cross), True Life Stories (Criss Cross), Forever (Criss Cross), Brand New World (RCA Victor), Live at Birdland (RCA Victor) and Introducing Jimmy Greene (Criss Cross) have been met with much critical acclaim. In fact, Tony Hall of Jazzwise Magazine (UK) calls Greene “ . . .without doubt one of the most striking young tenors of recent years.”

The Jimmy Greene Quartet performs regularly in jazz venues, festivals and clubs worldwide, including Jazz Standard (New York), Le Club (Moscow), Casa del Jazz (Rome), Sunside Jazz Club (Paris), Red Sea Jazz Festival (Israel), Lapataia Jazz Festival (Uruguay) and Amazonas Jazz Festival (Brazil). In one such appearance, Jim Macnie of the Village Voice said,”[Greene] is good for a couple of body chills every time you see him. He’s got a big barrelhouse sound, and a way of negotiating changes that make academic moves seem natural.”

In addition to his recordings and appearances as a leader, Greene appears on 75 albums as a sideman, and has toured and/or recorded with Horace Silver, Tom Harrell, Freddie Hubbard, Harry Connick, Jr., Avishai Cohen, Kenny Barron, Lewis Nash, Steve Turre, the New Jazz Composers Octet and the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, among many others. As a member of Harrell’s quintet, Greene was featured on CBS’s benchmark news magazine, 60 Minutes. As a member of Harry Connick Jr.’s Big Band, Greene is a featured soloist on 2 DVD releases, Harry for the Holidays, and Only You. He was featured as a soloist on Connick’s 2003 holiday special aired on NBC, in addition to NBC’s Today Show, and BBC’s Parkinson Show.

As a composer, Greene was awarded the prestigious 2005 ASCAP / IAJE Commission in honor of Ornette Coleman, the 2013 State of Connecticut Governor’s Arts Award in Music the City of Hartford’s Innovator Award in Music. Greene was named a 2004 Winner of Chamber Music America’s New Works: Creation and Presentation grant for jazz composition, awarded a 2005 Artist Fellowship in Music Composition by the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism, and awarded a 2009 Individual Artist Grant by the Greater Hartford Arts Council. Forty of Greene’s original compositions and arrangements have been recorded on the RCA Victor, SmallsLive, Criss Cross, NuJazz and RazDaz / Sunnyside labels. In addition, Greene’s performance of his composition “Mr. McLean” was aired throughout the US and Canada on ABC-TV during a NASCAR pre-race broadcast in September 2007.

Dr. Greene is Associate Professor of Music and Co-Coordinator of Jazz Studies at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, CT. Previously, he served as Assistant Professor of Jazz Saxophone at the University of Manitoba, Visiting Assistant Professor of Music at Purchase College (State University of New York), as Lecturer at the Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz at the Hartt School (University of Hartford) and as an Instructor at the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts. Dr. Greene has given clinics and masterclasses throughout the United States, Canada, Brazil, Israel and Russia. Two of his former students have been named semi-finalists in the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Competition and 18 student musicians and small ensembles under Dr. Greene’s direction have won DownBeat Magazine Student Music Awards.

Greene was named First Runner-Up in the 1996 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition, and was named one of the”25 Young Rising Stars in Jazz” by DownBeat Magazine in 1999.

New Faces

Posi-Tone Records unveils a carefully curated presentation of “New Faces” and keeps the musical message focused “Straight Forward.” This album is certainly not just another blowing date. This new music intentionally combines the individual talents of emerging Posi-Tone leaders into a cohesive camaraderie of artists that work together as a unified collective to consciously create a series of meaningful musical presentations. This “New Faces” group (trumpeter Josh Lawrence, vibraphonist Behn Gillece, saxophonist Roxy Coss, pianist Theo Hill, bassist Peter Brendler and drummer Vinnie Sperrazza) was carefully assembled and supervised by producer Marc Free, given the collective mission, and then sent off together to explore a wonderland of melodic mysteries and harmonic possibilities. The entire series of succinct performances included on this album are deliberately intended to provide accurate practical auditory insight and representation of the musical aesthetics and operational ethos of Posi- Tone Records. Highlighted by a sparkling diadem of performances, the album’s engaging program takes us on an entertaining musical journey, and revisits some repertoire gems from the label’s previous releases, along with some fresh cuts from the artist’s dazzling compositional catalog. Sit back and enjoy the intelligent and beautiful sounds emanating from these talented “New Faces” as they work inclusively to move the music dialog “Straight Forward” toward a more delightful today and a brighter tomorrow. ”

Josh Lawrence – Raised in Philadelphia and currently residing in New York City, Lawrence is young and focused trumpet player who has performed on a handful of acclaimed albums as a leader and sideperson for bands like The Fresh Cut Orchestra and The Captain Black Big Band. His first Posi- Tone release as a leader was Color Theory (2017) and will be releasing his follow up album in 2018.

Roxy Coss – Since moving to New York City in 2010, this Seattle native has been impressing jazz fans with her musical ability and emotional enlightenment. Her latest leader album, Chasing The Unicorn (Posi-Tone, 2017) is her third. She has been featured at the Newport Jazz Festival and on Harry Connick’s TV show, Harry. In addition to touring the world as a leader and educator, Coss is a member of The Diva Jazz Orchestra and was a member in Jeremy Pelt’s band.

Behn Gillece – Growing up in New Jersey, Gillece has played many nights in the entertaining cities of Philadelphia and New York. His recorded output is large for such a young vibraphonist. He has four albums as co-leader with label mate Ken Fowser, and three as a leader on Posi-Tone. He has appeared as a sideperson on other Posi-Tone records by Walt Weiskopf and Michael Dease.

Theo Hill – At 16, Hill was at the piano bench at Smalls Jazz Club in New York City. He was raised in Albany, NY and moved to NYC in 2004. With his Posi-Tone leader debut in 2016 (Promethean), Hill has opened the eyes of many jazz fans with his energetic playing well rooted in the classics, but progressive sounding. He is a member of The Mingus Big Band and Mingus Dynasty, and will be releasing his second album on Posi-Tone in 2018.

Peter Brendler – A versatile bass player with two records for Posi-Tone and another leader date with John Abercrombie, Brendler is not just another in-demand sideperson, but a creative force on the jazz scene. For a young musician, this New Face brings much experience to the group and adds plenty of modern sensibility and locked-in rhythm to the music.

Vinnie Sperrazza – A fixture on today’s modern NYC jazz scene, drummer Sperrazza has momentum going for him, along with plenty of time on stage and in the studio with his rhythmic partner, Brendler, including his Posi-Tone leader record, Juxtaposition (2017). This Utica, NY native has also been making emotionally rewarding albums over the past decade with numerous Brooklynbased bands.

Marquis Hill Blacktet

Marquis Hill – Trumpet
Braxton Cook – Alto Saxophone
Michael King – Piano
Jeremiah Hunt – Bass
Jonathan Pinson – Drums

“A dauntingly skilled trumpeter.” — New York Times

Trumpeter and composer Marquis Hill is widely recognized as one of the preeminent voices on the instrument of his generation. Raised in the Chatham neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, his introduction to music was made by taking up the drum kit in the fourth grade. However, after being inspired by a cousin his focus soon shifted to what was to become his primary instrument, the trumpet.

At 12 years of age, Mr. Hill became a member of the South Shore Youth Jazz Ensemble under the direction of saxophonist and educator Ronald Carter. He has been an active participant in the programs offered at Ravinia including the Ravinia Jazz Scholars and the Ravinia Steans Music Institute, the former of which brought him into contact with mentors Bobby Broom, Tito Carillo, and Willie Pickens. Mr. Hill’s musical education further expanded by attending Northern Illinois University, from which he graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education. While still an undergraduate, Mr. Hill began to be regarded as one of the most in demand trumpeters in Chicago.

Upon finalizing his formal education with a Master of Music degree in Jazz Pedagogy from DePaul University, Marquis Hill began working more frequently both as a sideman and a leader of his own ensemble, the Blacktet, throughout the region; appearing at festivals, clubs, and theaters with increasing frequency. His musical prowess began to garner more recognition after winning such competitions as the International Trumpet Guild jazz competition (2012) and most recently the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Trumpet Competition (2014), widely regarded as the most prestigious in its field.

In addition to performance, Mr. Hill has been an active educator. He has held teaching positions at numerous institutions including the Birch Creek Music Performance Center in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin; The NIU Summer Jazz Camp; The University of Illinois at Chicago where he was a faculty member for two years. He currently resides in New York City and has four albums to his credit: New Gospel (Skiptone 2011), Sounds of the City (Skiptone 2012), The Poet (Skiptone 2013), and Modern Flows vol. 1 (Skiptone 2014).

Freddy Cole Quartet (thursday)

Freddy Cole – piano/vocals
Elias Bailey – bass
Randy Napolean – guitar
Quentin Baxtor – drums

“Freddy has an impeccable sense of swing… he is, overall, the most maturely expressive male jazz singer of his generation, if not the best alive.” – The New York Times

“Gorgeous autumnal baritone, expressive phrasing and pitch-perfect feel for jazz standards, pop tunes and love ballads.” – People Magazine

Lionel Frederick Cole was born on October 15, 1931, the youngest of Edward and Paulina Nancy Cole’s five children. His three elder brothers, Eddie, Ike and Nat (twelve years Freddy’s senior) were all musicians. Though Freddy Cole was born in Chicago, he is a 35-year native son and international celebrity of Atlanta.

“I started playing piano at five or six,” Freddy remembers. “Music was all around me.” In the Chicago home of his youth, visitors included Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Lionel Hampton. He also credits Billy Eckstine as a major influence. ” He was a fantastic entertainer,” Freddy recalls. ” I learned so much from just watching and being around him.” After a possible career with the NFL was shelved due to a hand injury, he began playing and singing in Chicago clubs as a teenager. Although he was ready to hit the road at 18, his mother intervened and he continued his musical education at the Roosevelt Institute in Chicago.

Freddy moved to New York in 1951, where he studied at the Juilliard School of Music and found himself profoundly influenced by John Lewis, Oscar Peterson and Teddy Wilson. He got a Master’s degree at the New England Conservatory of Music and then spent several months on the road as a member of an Earl Bostic band that also included Johnny Coles and Benny Golson.

It was back in New York that Freddy successfully laid the groundwork for a career that continues to flourish to this day. He developed a vast repertoire of songs in Manhattan bistros and concurrently began to supplement his live performances with television and radio commercial jingle work.

A resident of Atlanta since 1972, he currently leads a trio made up of himself, guitarist Randy Napoleon, drummer Curtis Boyd and bassist Elias Bailey that regularly tours the US, Europe, the Far East and South America. Freddy has been a recording artist since 1952, when his first single, “The Joke’s on Me”, was released on an obscure Chicago-based label.

Freddy recorded several albums for European and English companies during the 1970s that helped him develop a loyal overseas following. Cole believes that becoming an international favorite made him “widen my scope a little bit.” He developed a stand-up act, a better rapport with audiences, and learned to sing in other languages. “It made me much more of a performer.”

Cole doesn’t apologize for sounding like his brother, Nat “King” Cole. There are certain unmistakable similarities. He plays piano and sings and performs live with guitar and upright bass, just like Nat. Yet his voice is raspier, smokier, jazzier even. But he has emerged from the awesome shadow cast by his elder brother. In truth, his phrasing is far closer to that of Frank Sinatra or Billie Holiday than that of his brother and his timing swings a little more. His vocals – suave, elegant, formidable, and articulate – are among the most respected in jazz. Cole’s career continues to ascend as he has moved into the front ranks of America’s homegrown art form with a style and musical sophistication all his own.

Polly Gibbons

She has been hailed by critics as the female counterpart to Gregory Porter and the Adele of Jazz. She has been touring throughout the world with SRO performances at Royal Albert Hall in London with Gladys Knight and George Benson. Van Morrison states “she has a great voice” and Joss Stone “can’t wait to hear more of Polly!” She is Polly Gibbons, Resonance Records rising star vocalist/songwriter, whose expansive array of American jazz, soul and blues influences have infused her dynamic career as an artist and live performer.

A farmer’s daughter who grew up in Framlingham, a small market town in Suffolk, England, Polly is one of seven siblings in a family that shared all types of different musical loves. Her mum cherished classical and choral music (Bach, Mozart, Chopin), her dad was an electric bassist who played in bands in the 70’s, her brothers loved R&B and her sisters were all vinyl collectors, playing everything from hip hop and soul to jazz and folk. Though she sang hymns regularly at the Baptist church her family attended, her musical sensibilities were galvanized when her sister played Billie Holiday’s “I’m A Fool To Want You” — which Polly found “extraordinary!”

Inspired by Billie, the budding singer experienced an initial flurry of excitement in discovering jazz and blues, listening to such artists as Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Nina Simone, Miles Davis, Donny Hathaway, Thelonious Monk, etc. She notes, however, that although she doesn’t have a very “folky” voice, she was also greatly influenced by artists like Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Rickie Lee Jones and Bob Dylan, and she continuously listens to classical music, too! Participating in a local music workshop, she met British singer Ian Shaw, who took Polly under his wing and secured her first gig in London when she was 17. Participating in other workshops, she cultivated her talent with bassist Gill Alexander, Jacqui Dankworth (daughter of Cleo Laine) and later, James Pearson.

Following the success of her latest album, Is It Me…?, Polly recently completed her third recording for Resonance, a live in-studio album, staged in front of an audience at the famed Power Station Studios in NYC, where artists ranging from Bruce Spingsteen to Bon Jovi, Lady Gaga, David Bowie and Bob Dylan have recorded some of their biggest hits.

Pat Martino Trio (friday)

When the anesthesia wore off, Pat Martino looked up hazily at his parents and his doctors, and tried to piece together any memory of his life.

One of the greatest guitarists in jazz, Martino had suffered a severe brain aneurysm and underwent surgery after being told that his condition could be terminal. After his operations, he could remember almost nothing. He barely recognized his parents, and had no memory of his guitar or his career. He remembers feeling as if he had been “dropped cold, empty, neutral, cleansed …naked.”

In the following months, Martino made a remarkable recovery. Through intensive study of his own historic recordings, and with the help of computer technology, Pat managed to reverse his memory loss and return to form on his instrument. His past recordings eventually became “an old friend, a spiritual experience which remained beautiful and honest.” This recovery fits in perfectly with Pat’s illustrious personal history. Since playing his first notes while still in his pre-teenage years, Martino has been recognized as one of the most exciting and virtuosic guitarists in jazz. With a distinctive, fat sound and gut-wrenching performances, he represents the best not just in jazz, but in music. He embodies thoughtful energy and soul.

Born Pat Azzara in Philadelphia in 1944, Pat was first exposed to jazz through his father, Carmen “Mickey” Azzara, who sang in local clubs and briefly studied guitar with Eddie Lang. He took Pat to all the city’s hot-spots to hear and meet Wes Montgomery and other musical giants. “I have always admired my father and have wanted to impress him. As a result, it forced me to get serious with my creative powers.”

He began playing guitar when he was twelve years old, and left school in tenth grade to devote himself to music. During Visits to his music teacher Dennis Sandole, Pat often ran into another gifted student, John Coltrane, who would treat the youngster to hot chocolate as they talked about music.

Besides first-hand encounters with `Trane and Montgomery, whose album Grooveyard had “an enormous influence” on Martino, he also cites Johnny Smith, a Stan Getz associate, as an early inspiration. “He seemed to me, as a child, to understand everything about music,” Pat recalls.

Martino became actively involved with the early rock scene in Philadelphia, alongside stars like Bobby Rydell, Frankie Avalon and Bobby Darin. His first road gig was with jazz organist Charles Earland, a high school friend. His reputation soon spread among other jazz players, and he was recruited by bandleader Lloyd Price to play hits such as Stagger Lee on-stage with musicians like Slide Hampton and Red Holloway.

Martino moved to Harlem to immerse himself in the “soul jazz” played by Willis “Gatortail” Jackson and others. He previously had “heard all of the so called “white” jazz. “I’d never heard that part of our culture,” he remembers, until the Montgomery Brothers. The organ trio concept had a profound influence on Martino’s rhythmic and harmonic approach, and he remained in that idiom as a sideman, gigging with Jack McDuff and Don Patterson. An icon before his eighteenth birthday, Pat was signed as a leader for Prestige Records when he was twenty. His seminal albums from this period include classics like Strings!, Desperado, El Hombre and Baiyina (The Clear Evidence), one of jazz’s first successful ventures into psychedelia.

In 1976, while performing internationally with his fusion group “Joyous Lake” Martino began experiencing seizures, which were eventually diagnosed as AVM, a condition he was born with. After surgery and recovery, he resumed his career when he appeared in 1987 in New York, a gig that was released on a CD with an appropriate name, The Return. He then took another hiatus when both of his parents became ill, and he didn’t record again until 1994, (after their death) when he recorded Interchange and then The Maker.

Today, Martino lives in Philadelphia again and continues to grow as a musician. As the New York Times noted, “Mr. Martino is back and he is plotting new musical directions, adding more layers to his myth.” His experiments with guitar synthesizers, (begun during his rehabilitation) are taking him in the direction of orchestral arrangements and they promise groundbreaking possibilities. Musicians flock to his door for lessons, and he offers not only the benefits of his musical knowledge, but also the philosophical insights of a man who has faced and overcome enormous obstacles. “The guitar is of no great importance to me,” he muses. “The people it brings to me are what matter. They are what I’m extremely grateful for, because they are alive. The guitar is just an apparatus.”

Vadim Neselovskyi — piano, voice, melodica, compositions Ronen Itzik — drums, percussion Dan Loomis — bass "I don’t think I have ever met an improviser who has more surprises in store…a true Genius." Gary Burton "I truly believe that he is one of the greatest pianist/composers out there right now.” Fred Hersch “We all look forward to hearing much more from him, as he ventures further down the singular road he has found.” Steve Swallow Vadim Neselovskyi is a Ukrainian pianist and composer based in New York City. He joined 6-Time Grammy-Winner Gary Burton’s Generations Quintet of future all-stars including Julian Lage, Luques Curtis and James Williams in 2004 and has been working as Gary Burton’s pianist and arranger for more than a decade, touring US, Europe and Japan. Vadim grew up in Odessa, Ukraine, where he was the youngest student (fifteen years old) to be accepted into Odessa Conservatory, and then moved to Dortmund, Germany when he was 17 years old. Shortly after arriving in Germany, Neselovskyi established himself on the local jazz scene, taking part in the Dusseldorf Jazz Rally and Leipzig Jazz Days. After a few years he moved to the USA to further his studies at Berklee College of Music, where he was asked to play and compose for a Berklee’s promotional recording produced by Pat Metheny, which also featured Esperanza Spalding and Christian Scott. Next education stage took place at the Thelonious Monk Institute where he was awarded a Full Scholarship as the pianist of an ensemble handpicked by Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Terence Blanchard. During this time, he toured internationally with Herbie Hancock, Chaka Khan, Dee Dee Bridgewater and Terri Lyne Carrington and shared the stage with artists such as John Scofield, Terence Blanchard, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Benny Golson, Nicholas Payton and Steve Coleman. His solo piano CD Music for September (Sunnyside Records, 2013) was produced by Fred Hersch and received 4-star review in Downbeat. In 2010 German Neue Musik Zeitung (NMZ) included him into “Best Musicians of 2010” list. His compositions have been covered by jazz stars such as Randy Brecker,[19] Antonio Sanchez, Scott Colley, Julian Lage,[ Gary Burton and also by Symphony Orchestras in the US (Spokane Symphony[ and Lancaster Symphony, and Europe (Neue Philharmonie Westfalen and INSO Lviv Sympony[).

OurStory

The SideDoor is quite literally a dream come true!

The Sidedoor jazz club is the realisation of a long cherished dream. Ken Kitchings has always been a true fan of jazz music and brought many great artists to The Garde Theatre in New London, CT during his time there.

In 2011 Ken and his wife Chris bought the beautiful, but sadly neglected, Old Lyme Inn and put their hearts and souls into bringing its former glory to life. Once the inn became an established part of the community, Ken set his sights on an unused “side door” space attached to the inn, visualizing the perfect jazz venue: Intimate, welcoming, elegant and a quality, great sounding room that the very best jazz artists would be happy to play in!

On May 10th, 2013 its door and stage was opened by none other than the venerable George Wein and his Newport All Star band, cutting the ribbon and giving his blessing to an awestruck Ken Kitchings! An incredible gala night opening to be remembered – setting the standard and placing The Sidedoor firmly on the jazz venue map!
