Source: Mary Curtin Productions

Keyboardist and composer Dave Bryant has many friends. Many who also happen to be notable local, national, and international jazz artists, who have collaborated with Cambridge-based Bryant on different projects over a span of decades. Those connections began to grow in the early 1980's, within a year after Bryant completed his formal undergrad studies at Berklee. It was then that he began to study privately with free jazz harmolodics pioneer Ornette Coleman. During this seven-year student/mentor period, Coleman counselled Bryant ...

Leonid & Friends: Chicago

Leonid & Friends: Chicago

Source: JazzWax by Marc Myers

The first time I heard Leonid & Friends, I thought for a second they were syncing to Chicago's recordings from the early 1970s. Turns out Leonid & Friends is a Russian-Ukrainian cover band with impeccable ears and talent. Leonid is Leonid Vorobyev (third from left), a Moscow producer, bassist, transcriber and arranger. In concert, the tentet recreates American hits perfectly, but they're probably best known for their precise Chicago covers. What sets them apart is that they work hard to ...
