Rare solo piano performance of all original compositions
WHEN: Friday, September 9, 8 & 9:30 PM
Since moving to the United States from Osaka in 1995, Eri Yamamoto has established herself as one of jazz's most original and compelling pianists and composers. Jazz legend Herbie Hancock has said, “My hat’s off to her… already she’s found her own voice.”
Eri has also developed a unique voice as a solo pianist, and has moved audiences with her renditions of her own compositions and her spontaneous improvisations. She recently completed a nine-concert solo tour of Italy to popular and critical acclaim.
FRED HERSCH Solo Piano Concert
Giant Steps: The Survival of a Great Jazz Pianist
Jazz Journalists' Association Jazz Pianist of the Year 2011
WHEN: Saturday, September 10, 8 & 9:30 PM
Tickets: $20/$10 students
Proclaimed by Vanity Fair magazine, “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade or so,” Fred Hersch balances his internationally recognized instrumental skills with significant achievements as a composer, bandleader and theatrical conceptualist, as well as remaining an in-demand collaborator with other noted bandleaders and vocalists.
As a solo pianist, he was the first artist in the 75-year history of New York's legendary Village Vanguard to play week-long engagements as a solo pianist. His second featured run is documented on the 2011 release, Alone at the Vanguard.
Hersch has fully lived up to the approbation of the New York Times Sunday Magazine article that praised him as “singular among the trailblazers of their art, a largely unsung innovator of this borderless, individualistic jazz—a jazz for the 21st century.”
RONN McFARLANE & AYERHEART
With guest vocalist Audrey Tornblom
WHEN: Sunday, September 11, 6 PM
TICKETS: $15/$10 students & seniors
Imagine the lute—ancient instrument of kings and queens—brought into a new context with fretless electric bass and percussion, played with the fiery virtuosity of a classical master, bringing together the elements of folk, jazz, bluegrass, classical, Celtic, rock, new age and impressionism.
The music of Ayreheart demonstrates the lute’s amazing flexibility in modern music, adapting its tonal resources to the demands of a wide range of styles. Ronn unleashes the lutes’ natural expressiveness, with its fine palette of tonal colors, revealing this ancient instrument to be an ideal vehicle for musical expression in our own time.
