Composer/guitarist Michael Joseph Harris has teamed up with piano virtuoso Cesar Orozco for this latest incarnation of the group, bringing a distinctly Cuban feeling to the music. Accomplished bassist Jake Leckie and top area drummer Michael Kuhl will be holding down the intense rhythms for the show and offering their own inventive improvisations.

     Lee Konitz - alto saxophone
     Florian Weber - piano
     with special guests
     Brad Linde - tenor saxophone
     Sarah Hughes - alto saxophone

At 85, Konitz is sometimes regarded as the preeminent cool jazz saxophonist, because he performed and recorded with Claude Thornhill, Lennie Tristano (both often cited as important cool jazz proponents of the mid 1940s), and with Miles Davis on his epochal Birth of the Cool, which gave the form its name.

Konitz has also been repeatedly noted as one of the few jazz saxophonists of the late 1940s and 1950s who did not seem imitative of the massively influential Charlie Parker.


HAPPY JAZZFATHER'S DAY

The recent William Paterson University graduate, guitarist Charlie Sigler, returns to town for another collaboration with vocalist/flutist Rhonda Robinson. We pay homage to the late, great, gone too soon pianist Mulgrew Miller, Charlie's mentor/Jazz Father and Director of Jazz Studies at William Paterson University. Charlie has always been a Jazz Father to Rhonda and a lot of other people despite his young age. Now, he stands poised to carry the torch handed to him by Mulgrew who had nothing but praise for Charlie after he played on his senior recital in April. Joining us, playing some of our favorites of the jazz repertoire: bassist Joe Bussey and drummer Aaron Seeber.
