OCTOBER 2012 SCHEDULE

10/1 Mingus Big Band
The Mingus Big Band – winners of a 2010 Grammy Award for the thrilling album Live At Jazz Standard – returns to our stage for two incendiary sets of music by legendary bassist, composer and bandleader Charles Mingus (1922–1979).
Music Charge: $25

10/2 – 10/3 Michael Formanek Quartet
Tim Berne – alto saxophone
Craig Taborn – piano
Michael Formanek – bass
Gerald Cleaver – drums

Small Places, the new album by Michael Formanek, is the bassist/composer's follow–up to The Rub and Spare Change, his widely lauded ECM debut as a leader. That 2010 release garnered a rare five–star review in DownBeat magazine, while The New York Times described the disc as being "graceful in its subversions, often even sumptuous." This exclusive Jazz Standard engagement spotlights the music of Small Places with Formanek at the helm of the recording band, including altoist Tim Berne, pianist Craig Taborn, and drummer Gerald Cleaver. Earthy yet atmospheric, this is very 21st century American jazz, the music brimming with piquant riffs and muscular ostinatos, rich in melodic possibility and the sound of surprise.
Music Charge: $20

10/4 – 10/7 FESTIVAL OF NEW TRUMPET MUSIC (FONT)
Under the direction of founder Dave Douglas, the Festival of New Trumpet Music (FONT) has presented innovative and exciting programs at Jazz Standard every year since its inception in 2003. Past FONTs have honored greats like Bobby Bradford, Wadada Leo Smith, and Kenny Wheeler; the 2012 series de­votes each of its four nights to the music of a different brass master.

10/4 Jack Walrath Quintet
Jack Walrath – trumpet
George Burton – piano
Abraham Burton – tenor & soprano saxophone
Joe Martin – bass
Donald Edwards – drums

Jack Walrath began playing the trumpet at age nine while growing up in Edgar, Montana (pop. 100). Over the course of a 45–year career, his prodigious talents have been utilized by Charles Mingus, Ray Charles, Muhal Richard Abrams, Sam Rivers, Miles Davis, Quincy Jones, and Elvis Costello, just to name a few. Walrath has released 22 albums as a leader and appeared on innumerable recording sessions led by other artists, including fourteen albums by Charles Mingus. "His playing has the articulate sarcasm of a Lee Morgan, his writing reflects the eclecticism and bravura of his former mentor Charles Mingus...Every style is navigated with maximum authenticity, instrumental prowess and humor." (Chip Stern, Musician) A FONT commission "has inspired me to write what Mingus called ‘extended composition, ' to be premi­ered at the festival, " says Jack Walrath. "This will be no ditty!"
Music Charge: $25

10/5 Charles Tolliver, Music Inc. Continuum
Charles Tolliver – trumpet
Xavier Davis – piano
Bruce Edwards – guitar
Devin Starks – bass
Gene Jackson – drums

In recent years, Charles Tolliver has become best known for leading a high–octane big band. But for this special FONT appearance, the veteran trumpeter and composer–arranger will appear with a top–shelf quintet that includes the fine pianist Xavier Davis (Betty Carter, Regina Carter, Stefon Harris, et al). "[Tolliver's] trumpet retains much of its vigorous tone, diligent logic, and controlled fury." (Gary Giddins)
Music Charge: $30

10/6 Tom Harrell Quartet
Tom Harrell – trumpet
Mark Turner – alto & tenor saxophone
Ugonna Okegwo – bass
Adam Cruz – drums

Tom Harrell is widely recognized as one of the most creative and uncompromising jazz instrumentalists and composers of our time. His warm, burnished sound on the trumpet and the flugelhorn, and the unpar­alleled harmonic and rhythmic sophistication in his playing and writing, have earned Harrell his place as a jazz icon to aspiring musicians and devoted fans alike. Tom Harrell's career discography encompasses more than 260 recordings including his 2012 release Number Five.
Music Charge: $30

10/7 Claudio Roditi with the West Point Jazz Knights Big Band
Claudio Roditi – trumpet

Born 1946 in Rio de Janeiro, Claudio Roditi arrived in New York in 1976 and quickly broke into the local circuit, performing and recording with Joe Henderson, Charlie Rouse, Herbie Mann, Tito Puente, McCoy Tyner, and Paquito D'Rivera. The trumpeter is a former member of Dizzy Gillespie's United Nations Orchestra; he earned a Grammy Award nomination in 1995 for his album Symphonic Bossa Nova with Ettore Stratta and the Royal Philharmonic. There will be no music charge for tonight's performances, featuring Claudio Roditi with the acclaimed Jazz Knights big band of the US Military Academy at West Point.
Music Charge: FREE

10/8 Mingus Big Band
"I am convinced that the unifying element in Mingus' music is passion…The basest materials were melted down and purified in the heat of the Mingus furnace. Not a dispassionate note was sounded: Players either stood the heat or left the kitchen. Many who stayed never had finer hours than those Mingus provided." – Composer/arranger Sy Johnson, from his liner notes to Nostalgia In Times Square / The Immortal 1959 Sessions (Columbia Records, 1979)
Music Charge: $25

10/9 Aaron Diehl Quartet featuring Warren Wolf
Aaron Diehl – piano
David Wong – bass
Rodney Green – drums
Warren Wolf – vibraphone

Hailed by the New York Times as a "revelation, " and by the Chicago Tribune as "the most promising dis­covery that [Wynton] Marsalis has made since Eric Reed, " Aaron Diehl's distinctive interpretations of the music of Scott Joplin, Jelly Roll Morton, Art Tatum, Duke Ellington, and other masters pays homage to the tradition while establishing his own original voice. Aaron – the 2011 Cole Porter Fellow in Jazz of the American Pianists Association – has performed with (among others) the Wynton Marsalis Septet, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, The Boston Symphony Orchestra, Benny Golson, Hank Jones, and Wycliffe Gordon. Live at Caramoor captures his glowing solo performance at the prestigious festival in the sum­mer of 2008, while Live At The Players is his latest trio recording. Vibraphonist Warren Wolf will be Aaron's special guest for two exhilarating sets tonight.
Music Charge: $20

10/10 Robin Verheyen Quartet In Association With The Gent Jazz Fest
Robin Verheyen – tenor & soprano saxophones
Ralph Alessi – trumpet
Thomas Morgan – bass
Jeff Davis – drums

The fiery saxophonist Robin Verheyen was still in his teens when he began forging a formidable reputa­tion in his native Belgium. After a brief stay in Paris, Verheyen arrived in New York in 2005 to study with Dave Liebman at the Manhattan School of Music. Working with trumpet ace Ralph Alessi in his cur­rent quartet, Verheyen's writing and playing bridges the gap between the blues–and–bop tradition and spontaneous, sky–stretching improvisation. Robin Verheyen has appeared at major European jazz festi­vals (North Sea in the Netherlands, Getxo and Bermeo in Spain, etc.) and worked with such leading lights as Branford Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, and Ravi Coltrane. Catch this rising star tonight at Jazz Standard!
Music Charge: $20

10/11 – 10/12 Edmar Castañeda Trio
Edmar Castañeda – Colombian harp
Itai Kriss - flute
Clarence Penn - drums
Andrea Tierra – special guest vocalist

Edmar Castañeda fell in love with the Colombian harp as a boy growing up in Bogota. But when he moved to the U.S. with his family at age 16 (as he told National Public Radio), Edmar found that "in high school here, they have bands – they didn't have harps. And then I wanted to play jazz. So I went to col­lege playing the trumpet, and it was great, because I learned all the jazz improvisation, and I just passed it to the harp." Edmar has added his masterful technique and exploratory improvisations to the music of artists ranging from Lila Downs to Paquito D'Rivera; he partnered with four–mallet vibraphonist Joe Locke for the 2009 album Entre Cuerdas. This Jazz Standard return engagement coincides with this unique musician's latest CD, Double Portion, featuring Gonzalo Rubalcaba (piano), Miguel Zenón (alto saxophone), and Hamilton de Holanda (mandolin).
Music Charge: $25 / $30 Friday

10/13 – 10/14 SFJAZZ Collective Plays Chick Corea
David Sanchez – tenor saxophone
Miguel Zenon – alto saxophone
Avishai Cohen – trumpet
Stefon Harris – vibraphone
Robin Eubanks – trombone
Edward Simon – piano
Matt Penman – bass
Jeff Ballard – drums

In April 2011, the SFJAZZ Collective knocked out fans and critics alike with their Jazz Standard perfor­mances of the music of Stevie Wonder – later documented on the double–CD set Live In New York 2011. Now, SFJAZZ returns to our stage to play the music of a true living legend of jazz, Armando "Chick" Corea. The 18–time Grammy Award winner's signature style on both acoustic and electric keyboards has graced recordings by Miles Davis (Filles de Kilimanjaro and Bitches Brew), Herbie Hancock, Gary Burton, and Bobby McFerrin, not to mention his fabled group Return To Forever and landmark collabo­rations with Michael Brecker, Joe Farrell, John McLaughlin, and Roy Haynes. In addition to Corea's works, each member of SFJAZZ also will contribute an original composition to the program.

Saxophonist Miguel Zenón calls Chick Corea "one of my biggest inspirations as a player and com­poser…his music has in many ways shaped the direction of jazz for the past 40 years." Pianist Edward Simon says: "Chick encompasses my definition of a true and complete artist: a master of his instrument and a prolific composer who continues to explore new arenas and break down barriers between musical genres." SFJAZZ will be recording these performances for future release – come and be part of the excitement!
Music Charge: $30 all shows

10/15 Mingus Big Band
"My entire association with Charles Mingus was an honor and a treat – including all the moods, temper­aments, personality clashes, cooperation, and feelings of accomplishment and self–gratification. I can't find any superlatives strong enough to define what those years meant to me…Jazz, in my language, is a four–letter word spelled L-O-V-E. Charles Mingus was one of the people who taught me how to spell." – Pianist Jaki Byard, from his liner notes to Prestige LP Portrait by Charles Mingus (1980).
Music Charge: $25

10/16 Tia Fuller Quartet With Special Guests James Genus & Terri Lyne Carrington
Tia Fuller – alto & soprano saxophone, flute
Shamie Royston – piano
Mimi Jones – bass
Rudy Royston – drums
With Special Guests
James Genus – bass
Terri Lyne Carrington – drums

Tia Fuller's third release on Mack Avenue Records, Angelic Warrior, marks a giant step in her evolution as an instrumentalist, composer and bandleader. After five years in superstar Beyoncé's band, the pop diva's attention to detail in the studio sharpened Tia's own focus as producer of Angelic Warrior. The result is a complete aesthetic statement that celebrates both the peaceful demeanor of the "angel" and the drive and determination of the "warrior" spirit within. Angelic Warrior features such arresting original compositions as "Ode To Be" and "Lil' Les" alongside Fuller's ingenious reworking of the bop classic "Cherokee" and her melding of two Cole Porter standards into "So In Love With All of You." For this special CD launch, Tia will be joined by most of the musicians who appear on her album including her sister, pianist Shamie Royston; and drummers Rudy Royston and Terri Lyne Carrington.
Music Charge: $20

10/17 Fabian Almazan Trio with Strings
Fabian Almazan – piano
Kendrick Scott – drums
Joshua Crumbly – bass
Meg Okura - violin
2nd violin - TBD
Karen Waltuch - viola
Noah Hoffeld - cello
& special guest Camila Meza - voice & guitar

Known to audiences around the world for his superlative playing with the Terence Blanchard Quintet, in May 2012 Fabian Almazan released an auspicious debut album, Personalities, with an array of sounds ranging from 19th century Cuban danzon to tough, melodic modern jazz. Perhaps the most surprising track is his version of Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 10, one of Almazan's favorite pieces from his years of classical piano lessons. The original performance by piano trio and string quartet was manipulated with signal processers "to create ghostly wails, chirps and rumbles within Shostakovich's melody, " wrote Geoffrey Himes in The Washington Post. "…Almazan creates narratives with his instrumental music, whether it's the story of his childhood in Havana, his early gigs in Manhattan, his classical piano lessons in Miami, his electronica experiments in Utah or his observation of stage parents everywhere."
Music charge: $20

10/18 – 10/21 Jacky Terrasson Trio *JS:10 Anniversary concert*
Jacky Terrasson – piano
Burniss Travis – bass
Justin Faulkner – drums

Has it really been twenty years since Jacky Terrasson made his recording debut as a leader? Certainly, the pianist's new album Gouache reveals no diminution of his creative powers or his love of eclectic reper­toire. Gouache's many delights include Terrasson treatments of Sonny Rollins' "Valse Hot, " John Lennon's song "Oh My Love" (with an enchanting vocal performance by Cécile McLorin Salvant), and the album's most surprising choice, an Erik Satie melody entitled "Je te veux." This Jazz Standard run finds Jacky leading his superb trio with bassist Burniss Travis and drummer Justin Faulkner. "I'm a player; I love the playful aspect of the trio, the perpetual interchange we can develop, " says the leader. "It's the kind of 'ménage à trois' that makes us provoke one another and react to what happens."
Music Charge: $25 / $30 Fri. & Sat.

10/22 Mingus Big Band

"Just because I'm playing jazz, I don't forget about me. I play or write me, the way I feel, through jazz or whatever. Music is, or was, the language of the emotions…My music is alive and it's about the living and the dead, about good and evil." – Charles Mingus, "An Open Letter to Miles Davis, " DownBeat (1956)
Music Charge: $25

10/23 Freddie Bryant and Kaleidoscope
Freddie Bryant – 12–string, nylon–string, and Fender Telecaster guitars
Donny McCaslin – tenor saxophone
Yosvany Terry – alto saxophone and chekere
Juan Galiardo – piano
Patrice Blanchard – bass
Willard Dyson – drums

"Freddie Bryant is a brilliant young guitarist and composer, " declared Kenny Burrell (who knows one when he hears one). Bryant is a mainstay of both Ben Riley's Monk Legacy Septet and the Mingus Orchestra; his skill and sensitivity have made him a first–call accompanist for such diverse artists as Brazilian pianist/vocalist Eliane Elias, African singer Salif Keita, and the virtuoso klezmer clarinetist Maestro Giora Feidman. This Jazz Standard one–nighter will launch Freddie's latest album, Live Grooves...Epic Tales, and feature the all–star band that appears on such great tracks as "Blues Koan, " "Alone, " "Beginner's Mind, " and "Bo Diddley." "A gifted guitarist who is classically trained with jazz chops to spare...Though he is still in his mid–30s, Bryant's compositions...display a remarkable maturity and grace." (James Lamperetta, The Saratogan)
Music Charge: $20

10/24 Scott Robinson Doctette
Scott Robinson – tenor, bass, contrabass saxophones / slide saxophone, alto clarinet, Theremin, wind machine, etc.
Randy Sandke – trumpet, euphonium

And now for something completely different: Bronze Nemesis (Doc-Tone Records), a collection of twelve fantastic musical adventures inspired by the amazing worlds of Doc Savage, pulp novel hero of the Thirties and Forties. Join composer/saxophonist Scott Robinson and his co-adventurers Ted Rosenthal, Randy Sandke, Dennis Irwin, Pat O'Leary and Dennis Mackrel as they investigate "The Secret in the Sky, " "The Man Who Shook the Earth, " "Weird Valley" and nine more astonishing mysteries. This am­bitious musical undertaking, some ten years in the making, features leader Robinson on the oversized contrabass sax, Theremin, and other unusual instruments. This recording is endorsed by original Bantam paperback artist James Bama, and features his iconic pose of Doc Savage on the front cover!
Music Charge: $20

10/25 – 10/28 George Coleman Organ Quintet *JS:10 anniversary concert*
George Coleman – tenor saxophone
Mike LeDonne – Hammond B–3 organ
Russell Malone – guitar
George Coleman Jr. – drums
Danny Sadownick – percussion

George Coleman would be a legendary figure in jazz for his crucial role in the Miles Davis Quintet of 1963–64, even if he'd never recorded a string of fine albums as a leader. Coleman fans have heard him most often in an acoustic setting with longtime Memphis running partner, pianist Harold Mabern. But this week at Jazz Standard, the sagacious tenor man explores his rare–groove side in the company of hard–hitting organist Mike LeDonne and fleet–fingered guitarist Russell Malone. "The dignity and class of George Coleman cannot be overemphasized…" (Michael G. Nastos, AllMusic.com)
Music Charge: $25/$30 Fri. & Sat.

10/29 Mingus Big Band

"Jazz, by its very definition, cannot be held down to written parts to be played with a feeling that goes only with blowing free. A classical musician might read all the notes correctly, but play them without the correct feeling or interpretation; a jazz musician, although he might read all the notes and play them with jazz feeling, inevitably introduces his own individual expression rather than what the composer intended. It is amazing how many ways a four–bar phrase of four beats per measure can be interpreted!" – Charles Mingus, from his liner notes to Atlantic LP Pithecanthropus Erectus (1956).
Music Charge: $25

10/30 Francisco Mela Quartet
Francisco Mela – drums
Ben Williams – bass
Gilad Hekselman – guitar
Ben Wendel – saxophone

Known for his thrilling displays of percussive technique and signature ride–cymbal touch, drummer Francisco Mela speaks with Afro–Cuban tongues even as his music echoes the tradition of jazz giants like Chick Corea, Miles Davis, Elvin Jones and Thelonious Monk. Joe Lovano, McCoy Tyner, Kenny Barron, and JoAnne Brackeen are among those can attest to Mela's charisma, sophistication, and peerless musi­cianship. He opens this Jazz Standard double–header with two sets by an outstanding quartet that features guitarist Gilad Hekselman and Grammy–nominated saxophonist Ben Wendel.
Music Charge: $20

10/31 Francisco Mela's Cuban Safari
Francisco Mela – drums
Elio Villafranca – piano
Peter Slavov – bass
Uri Gurvich – alto saxophone
Arturo Stable – percussion

Tonight we celebrate the release of Tree of Life, a new album by Francisco Mela's Cuban Safari. With this group, Mela pays homage to some of his key inspirations including Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter's Weather Report; the Miles Davis group with Chick Corea and Keith Jarrett; and the Latin jazz supergroup Irakere. Travelers may expect a spell of thunder and lighting on this "safari" before we reach shimmering new horizons!
