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:

WFPK’s favorite “local” performer, Lexingtonian Ben Sollee brings his cello to the Bomhard Theatre on November 1. Essentially a cello-playing singer-songwriter, Sollee has made a considerable career out of hauling his cello on a bicycle and championing various good causes, as well as making music folks like. His latest record is The Hollow Sessions. You can hear him as well on November 2 at Comstock Hall at the School of Music at 3p. Either show is $25.

Here’s Sollee playing “Letting Go”:

“The Unity Band record and tour was life changing for me, and I really wanted to find a way to keep it going and take it to the next level. One night, I woke up with the tantalizing idea of taking the concept of ‘unity’ even further. With this next project, I envisioned building a platform capable of addressing the entire spectrum of things I have done over the years, from Bright Size Life to Secret Story, from my Group projects to the Orchestrion, and more, all in one place.” – Pat Metheny
The Pat Metheny Unity Group will play the Kentucky Country Day Theater on Sunday, July 27. For Louisville jazz fans, Metheny and any of his several band configurations need no introduction. An all-around jazz master and multi-instrumentalist, he has performed with artists as diverse as Steve Reich to Ornette Coleman to Herbie Hancock to Jim Hall to Milton Nascimento to David Bowie. His body of work includes compositions for solo guitar, small ensembles, electric and acoustic instruments, large orchestras, and ballet pieces, with settings ranging from modern jazz to rock to classical. You will really be able to hear him in the intimate confines of the Kentucky Country Day Theatre, where – as of this post – there were still some 144 seats available. Tickets to the show are $55-$65.

Here’s a promo for the group:

The Dreamland venue was established specifically to book acts not otherwise likely to find gigs in Louisville. Naturally,  this includes some of the more exotic jazz combos, which is pretty much the subtagline for the July 23 show, a tour entitled “Washington D.C. Jazz Collective Night” and featuring Aaron Quinn’s Liver Quiver, Sarah Hughes Saxophone Quartet, Brad Linde’s Underwater Ghost and Billy Wolfe’s Composer’s Octet. Various of these groups will play separately and together, mix and match style. This is so far outside this writer’s area of expertise that I’ll just leave it at that. Tickets are $7.

Here’s Sarah Hughes playing with the Brad Linde Quartet:

The Mercury Ballroom takes a step sideways with their July 4 show. Tagged A Jazz-Americana Celebration With Dave Stryker “Eight Track Project,” the 4th Street venue is braving the iffy market for jazz in Louisville. That being said, Stryker is not a bad choice; he’s been in town several times, most recently in 2011, when he played with the Dick Sisto Trio at the Seelbach Jazz Bar. Then there’s his long history with Jamey Aebersold’s Summer Jazz Workshop, which, conveniently, wraps up on July 4. Tickets are $10 plus $3 fee, students are $8 adv.

Check out the video for Eight Track – “Pusherman/Superfly”:
