Dianne Reeves At The Belfast Festival 2014

Read "Dianne Reeves At The Belfast Festival 2014"

Dianne Reeves Belfast Festival Belfast, N. Ireland October 26, 2014 Dianne Reeves' first visit to jny: Belfast coincided with her first album in five years. For some artists, say Bill Frisell, Pat Metheny or John Zorn, a gap of half a decade between releases would be spoken of in reverential terms as their “silent period," but for other artists, like Reeves, no such sense of mystery surrounds an artistic drought. After several decades recording and a bunch of Grammy Awards, Reeves' career seemed to take a back seat to life, hence the title of ...

La Voz de Tres at Tempe Center for the Arts

Read "La Voz de Tres at Tempe Center for the Arts"

La Voz de Tres Tempe Center for the Arts Tempe, Arizona September 27, 2014 Chilean-born Natalie Bernal's vocal sound was both illuminatively angelic and deeply sensual, a transfixing contrast for the New York-based trio La Voz de Tres. Her colleagues, Mike Eckroth on piano-vocals and Jason Ennis on seven-string guitar-vocals, make up the coalition that launched the sixth season for Lakeshore Music's nine-month jazz series in this venue, said producer Woody Wilson. The concert was a world-jazz musical experience of contrasting moods, from gracefully flowing to rapid-fire electricity. The trio's exceptional originality and ...

Lulo Reinhardt Latin Swing Project At The Belfast Festival 2014

Read "Lulo Reinhardt Latin Swing Project At The Belfast Festival 2014"

Lulo Reinhardt Latin Swing Project Belfast Festival / Elmwood Hall Belfast October 24, 2014 What's in a name? Quite a lot if it happens to be Reinhardt. That surname still excites press and public alike more than sixty years after the death of guitarist Django Reinhardt. It also generates a high degree of expectation. The Belfast audience was primed for a show of breathtaking gypsy-jazz virtuosity from guitarist Lulo Reinhardt, great-nephew of Django. Doubtless too, many were expecting some of Django's tunes, several of which have become part of the jazz standard repertoire.

Craig Taborn Trio at Gent Jazz Club

Read "Craig Taborn Trio at Gent Jazz Club"

Craig Taborn Trio Belfort Café Gent, Belgium October 13, 2014 For some an enforced line up change mid tour might have spelled disaster. But pianist Craig Taborn's trio rode their fortune and delivered a, likely adrenaline-fuelled, wonderful performance. When drummer Gerald Cleaver, Taborn's most longstanding accomplice, pulled out for medical reasons, the pianist called up reinforcement in the shape of hometown stickman JT Bates. He flew in from Minneapolis, arriving just half an hour before the soundcheck in the Belgian city of Gent midway through a series of European dates. But you ...
