BOSTON: TINSLEY ELLIS AT SCULLERS

Ellis may speak no evil, but he sings and plays with the conviction of, "a man possessed." Over the course of 11 albums and literally thousands of live performances, Ellis easily ranks as one of today's most electrifying blues-rock guitarists and vocalists. He attacks his music with rock power and blues feeling, in the same tradition as his Deep South musical heroes Duane Allman and Freddie King and his old friends Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes. Dinner/Show: $70 Show only: $30.
BOSTON: JUSSI REIJONEN: UN AT REGATTABAR
Bringing together four seasoned musicians from Finland, Spain, Sweden and Palestine, JUSSI REIJONEN: UN performs at THE REGATTABAR at the Charles Hotel (1 Bennett Street, Cambridge, MA - 617-395-7757) on Wednesday, March 5th at 7:30 pm. The quintet, featuring: Jussi Reijonen - fretless/fretted guitar, oud; Juan Perez Rodriguez - piano, voice; Bruno Råberg - acoustic bass; Tareq Rantisi - percussion and Naseem Alatrash - cello, traverses the boundaries between musical cultures, paying tribute to the traditions of American and Scandinavian jazz and the folk musics of the Middle East and Africa in its search for new sounds and textures. Reijonen's original music draws from a wide pool of influences and experiences gathered growing up in five different countries on three different continents; in both his original compositions and his playing, the open spaces and silences of Scandinavia effortlessly rub shoulders with the maqamat of the Arab world and the rhythmic richness of India and West Africa, creating a truly enchanting musical mosaic. There is an $18 cover.

The night will open with Franco-American, New World jazz guitarist and composer Alex Martin, strongly influenced by the Brazilian tradition. Alex's set will focus on the Brazilian-flavored pieces in his repertoire, presenting a baiao and forro flavor (associated with Northeast Brazil). He'll be including some standards from that repertoire as well as some of his own compositions. Alex has released two CD's to date; Second Life (2010) and Nostalgia for Terra Incognita (2007), receiving wonderful reviews from satisfied fans across the country as well as from local radio stations such as WPFW in Washington D.C. For the second portion of the evening, Brazilian Jazz vocalist Emy Tseng will be focusing on bossa nova and samba (more associated with Rio de Janeiro). Through her rejuvenated and incisive interpretations of authentic modern and Brazilian jazz, delightfully complemented by her elegant voice and delicate delivery, Emy showcases a truly exquisite fusion of the genre and eclectic arrangements of standards. She leaves an inimitable, personal impression on an exciting collection of tunes, exploring the works of Brazil's most sophisticated composers; singing in both Portuguese and English. Emy released her debut album 'Sonho' early last year, and has since received incredible reviews from esteemed publications such as All About Jazz and International Review of Music. Alex and Emy will both be performing alongside David Jernigan on bass and John Shepherd on drums. Pianist Wayne Wilentz will be joining Emy's group for her set. These musicians are among the best interpreters of Brazilian styles in the DC area, which will sure to make for an intoxicating evening of jazz. There is a $15 cover.
