Boney James and Stanley Jordan at the Palace

 Concerts, Jazz, LMNEditor, Previews, Video  Comments Off on Boney James and Stanley Jordan at the Palace
Dec 082014
 

Louisville jazz fans constantly complain that national jazz acts don’t come here nearly often enough, so the news that saxophonist Boney James will appear with jazz fusion guitarist Stanley Jordan at the Louisville Palace on December 12, should make them take a break from bitching. Of course, that would suppose that jazz fans weren’t as hard-nosed as bluegrass fans can be about their favorites, which, unfortunately, they are are: James is a contemporary jazz musician, so he gets counted in as a smooth jazz player with the likes of Kenny G. The Boston Globe has a comment about that: “Let’s make something perfectly clear: James is not a smooth jazz player. Yeah, he is often grouped with people like Kenny G and Najee, but his music is muscular and gritty, whereas most smooth jazz has all the texture and complexity of a cue ball…James swaggered across the stage like a blacktop hero draining treys on an overmatched opponent. He even weaved his way through the audience, never missing a beat and all but daring the crowd not to have a good time.” Besides, he’s playing with Stanley Jordan and if that’s not enough to stop them from cooking up a bitches brew of complaints, then they’re just too damn picky. Tickets range from $39.99 to $75, plus fees.

Here’s a clip from the Montreux Jazz Festival with James

Miguel Zenon Quartet Blows Into Clifton Center

 Concerts, Jazz, LMNEditor, Previews, Video  Comments Off on Miguel Zenon Quartet Blows Into Clifton Center
Nov 042014
 

The Clifton Center has been building a reputation for booking excellent, slightly outside Louisville boundaries, performers; the Miguel Zenon Quartet is no exception to that. A native of Puerto Rico, Zenon’s alto saxophone playing has graced many, many venues and recordings as a sideman and a band leader. He has multiple Grammy nominations (though no wins to date); he latest album is Identities are Changeable, released just this year. It’s clear enough – if top-flight, bleeding-edge jazz is to your taste, you should be the Clifton Center on November 7. Tickets are $18 show only/$43 with dinner.

Check out this show at the Village Vanguard back in May, 2013:

Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra featuring Wynton Marsalis

 Concerts, Jazz, LMNEditor, Previews, Video  Comments Off on Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra featuring Wynton Marsalis
Sep 272014
 

The Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra featuring Wynton Marsalis arrives at Whitney Hall on October 1 as a part of the Midnite Ramble series. Wynton Marsalis is, of course, deservedly famous for his work educating listeners about jazz and blues as well as music in general and has been in town several times. The Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra is also top ranked among jazz orchestras. The LO PR has a rather succinct bit to say about it: “The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, led by Wynton Marsalis, is made up of 15 of the finest soloists, ensemble players, and arrangers in jazz music today. The mission of Jazz at Lincoln Center is to entertain, enrich and expand a global community for Jazz through performance, education and advocacy. JALC believes Jazz is a metaphor for Democracy. Because jazz is improvisational, it celebrates personal freedom and encourages individual expression. Because jazz is swinging, it dedicates that freedom to finding and maintaining common ground with others. Because jazz is rooted in the blues, it inspires us to face adversity with persistent optimism.” Tickets start at $25.

Here’s a video from a show at Cornell University:
