NYC: BARBARA CARROLL SATURDAYS AT BIRDLAND
NYC Cabaret/Jazz icon Barbara Carroll performs at BIRDLAND (315 West 44th Street, NYC - 212-581-3080) on Saturdays, February 8th, 15th & 22nd at 6:00 pm. She is joined by her long-time bassist Jay Leonhart. Barbara Carroll's still evolving career as a jazz pianist began when she played her first New York engagement opposite Dizzy Gillespie's big band at the Downbeat Club in 1947. A thrilling if a trifle unsettling debut for a young female pianist from Worcester, Massachusetts who began playing the piano at five and who's family was wise enough to give her lessons that provided her with a basic knowledge of classical technique. In 1978, she was booked into the Bemelmans Bar at the Carlyle hotel for a two week engagement - and stayed for twenty five years. It was at the Carlyle that she began to feature her singing as an integral part of her performances. Following her 25 years at the Carlyle, she is well into another long run in the famous Oak Room at New York's Algonquin Hotel, making a significant and successful effort to incorporate jazz playing into a cabaret venue. Other recent engagements have included concerts at Philharmonic Hall in Naples, Florida, the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, concerts at the Walter Auditorium at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts as well as twelve sold out performances at Dizzy's Club, at Jazz at Lincoln Center. There is a $30 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.
NYC: "FOUR GENERATIONS OF MILES" AT BIRDLAND
"Four Generations of Miles" with Jimmy Cobb (drums), Mike Stern (guitar), Buster Williams (bass) and Sonny Fortune (sax) perform atBIRDLAND (315 West 44th Street, NYC - 212-581-3080) on Tuesday through Saturday, February 4th through 8th with shows at 8:30 & 11:00 pm. Miles Davis' career as a trumpeter, composer and bandleader is synonymous with the stylistic evolution of jazz. His ensembles and recordings are the benchmarks for cool, post-bop and fusion as evidenced by these four-generations of artists who first gained recognition under Davis' leadership. Drummer Jimmy Cobb appeared on one of the most popular and influential recordings in history, "Kind of Blue" (1959) while guitarist Mike Stern ("We Want Miles," 1981), bassist Buster Williams ("Directions," 1960s) and alto saxophonist Sonny Fortune ("Big Fun," 1974) have the post-bop and fusion bases well covered. There is a $30 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.
NYC: RON CARTER QUARTET AT THE BLUE NOTE
The Ron Carter Quartet (Ron Carter, bass; Renee Rosnes, piano; Payton Crossley, drums; and Rolando Morales-Matos, percussion) will perform at THE BLUE NOTE (131 West 3rd Street, NYC - 212-475-8592) on Tuesday through Sunday, February 4th through 9th with shows at 8:00 & 10:30 pm. Ron Carter is among the most original, prolific, and influential bassists in jazz. With more than 2,000 albums to his credit, he has recorded with many of the music's greats: Tommy Flanagan, Gil Evans, Lena Horne, Bill Evans, B.B. King, the Kronos Quartet, Dexter Gordon, Wes Montgomery, and Bobby Timmons. Carter has lectured, conducted, and performed at clinics and master classes, instructing jazz ensembles and teaching the business of music at numerous universities. He was Artistic Director of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Studies while it was located in Boston and, after 18 years on the faculty of the Music Department of The City College of New York, he is now Distinguished Professor Emeritus although, as a performer, he remains as active as ever. There is a $20-$35 cover.
NYC: DANNY SERAPHINE'S CTA, FEATURING BILL CHAMPLIN & LARRY BRAGGS
Pioneering jazz-rock drummer and composer Danny Seraphine will perform at THE IRIDIUM JAZZ CLUB (1650 Broadway, NYC - 212-582-2121) on Thursday through Sunday, February 6th through 9th with shows at 8:30 & 10:30 pm. Seraphine is a founding member of Chicago. Worldwide the iconic group has sold over 122 million albums, and, just domestically, earned 22 gold, 18 platinum, and 8 multi-platinum albums. In 1990, after 23 years in the group, Seraphine and Chicago had a jarring parting of ways, and he left music behind for 15 years. But a call to play a benefit show for a fellow drummer pulled him out of seclusion and sparked a creative rebirth. Today, Seraphine looks forward with Sacred Ground (Street Sense), the sophomore record from his jazz-rock powerhouse group CTA - often described as "Chicago on steroids" - and he makes peace with his past with the refreshingly candid memoir Street Player: My Chicago Story (Wiley). There is a $40-$70 cover plus a $15 food/drink minimum.
NYC: TRIBUTE TO THE TERRY GIBBS DREAM BAND
Drummer Gerry Gibbs and His All-Star Thrasher Big Band pays tribute to his father, jazz and vibraphone icon Terry Gibbs at DIZZY'S CLUB AT JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER (33 West 60th Street, NYC - 212-258-9595) on Thursday through Sunday, February 6th through 9th with shows at 7:30 & 9:30 pm. Terry Gibbs' career included tours and performances with leaders like Buddy Rich, Woody Herman, Benny Goodman, Max Roach, Dizzy Gillespie, and Tito Puente, to name a select few. In addition to his prestige as one of the greatest vibraphonists of all time, Terry Gibbs was especially recognized as a bandleader, winning Best Quartet, Best Big Band, Best Band Leader, and of course, "Best Band in the World" in major polls. Gibbs' compositions have been recorded by icons including Cannonball Adderley and Count Basie, and the top-shelf musicians featured in this tribute will maintain this ongoing legacy. Featuring modern giants, including Tom Harrell, Nicholas Payton, Paquito D'Rivera, and many more, we can't think of a better way to honor this quintessential member of jazz history. There is a $30-$45 cover.copyright 2014 - See cabaret listings from all over the world at CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE
