Date Time Event Description
Aug-19-17 07:00 PM Don Giovanni

“I have seldom seen this climactic moment staged to such haunting effect,” wrote the New York Times’s Anthony Tommasini about Don Giovanni’s descent into hell as staged by the “immensely gifted” conductor Iván Fischer (NPR). First performed to sold-out houses at Mostly Mozart in 2011, this provocative staged concert of Mozart’s opera overflows with musical revelations and dramatic innovation. Soprano Laura Aikin reprises her “standout” performance (New York Times) as the suffering Donna Anna and baritone Christopher Maltman is the titular playboy, dragged to his fiery fate in the unforgettable finale.

 

This production of Don Giovanni was co-produced by the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Müpa Budapest.

The DW Jazz Orchestra is a brand new big band led by two hardworking students from Northwestern University. Following a successful fundraising campaign bolstered by a significant grant from the University, this ambitious pair recently recorded their debut album. It’s not often that musicians this young have the talent, drive, and focus required to assemble, record, and travel with a jazz orchestra, and the passion they have brought to this project is remarkable. The album is comprised entirely of new, unrecorded big band works composed by Danowsky, Wolsk, and their peers, showcasing some promising young voices jazz from Chicago and New York. They’re at Dizzy’s for one night only, so let’s support and enjoy these new bandleaders.

With saxophonist and flutist Steve Slagle, trombonist Conrad Herwig, pianist Bill O’Connell, bassist Yunior Terry, drummer Robby Ameen, and conga player Roman Diaz

“From its surging beginning to its aspirational finale, pianist Bill O’Connell’s [and The Latin Jazz All-Stars’] Heart Beat delivers rich, layered work… it starts hot and gets hotter.” – DownBeat

Bill O’Connell is an award-winning pianist, keyboardist, composer, and arranger celebrated in both Latin and contemporary jazz. Since becoming Mongo Santamaría’s keyboardist in 1977, O’Connell has performed with, led, and arranged for such heavyweights as Astrud Gilberto, Sonny Rollins, Papo Vázquez, Paquito D’Rivera, and Chet Baker, and he recorded over a dozen albums with the Grammy Award-winning flutist Dave Valentín. O’Connell is one of the modern greats as both a player and writer, and The Latin Jazz All-Stars, his primary band, truly lives up to its name. What better way to spend a hot Monday night?

Aug-29-17 07:30 PM A Night in Havana with Axel Tosca

With pianist/keyboardist Axel Tosca; bassist Alex Smith, drummer Mark Whitfield, Jr., vibraphonist/percussionist Felipe Fournier, and vocalist Xiomara Laugart

Cuban-born, New York-based pianist and composer Axel Tosca makes his debut at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola. Described as “contemporary jazz with a global reach,” Tosca blends influences including folk, timba, Afro-Caribbean, and funk. Tonight, he will be leading a sextet or septet through a set focused on his original music. Check out his self-titled album for a taste of his compositions, but note that this set will be more of a raw, acoustic approach to his music. Tosca is a charismatic bandleader whose groups have great chemistry, and we’re interested to see how they approach this exciting material.

Aug-30-17 07:30 PM Ann Hampton Callaway

Ann Hampton Callaway is one of the preeminent voices of the American Songbook, a tireless performer who has reached acclaim on Broadway, in theaters, on television, and in a variety of concert halls and jazz clubs around the country. Her last performance at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola was an album release party celebrating Callaway’s tribute to the virtuosic Sarah Vaughan, also known as “Sassy” and “The Divine One.” A full concert dedicated to this legendary vocalist was a bold and formidable task, but Callaway regularly proves her ability to cover diverse and challenging material with taste, humor, and technical strength. We’re looking forward to hearing what she does next!

Sep-01-17 07:30 PM Grassella Oliphant

The Lessons from Our Masters series features a master of jazz alongside a multigenerational band. Master drummer Grassella Oliphant kicks off this year’s series on his 88th birthday. This elder statesman played with Ahmad Jamal in 1952, Sarah Vaughan through the late 1950s, and released a couple of albums featuring heavyweights like Bobby Hutcherson, Clark Terry, and Grant Green. He then took a nearly 40-year hiatus from music before returning in 2010 as great as ever. Oliphant led a a week of Dizzy’s Club Late Night Sessions in May 2017, prompting Jason Olaine, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Director of Programming and Touring, to say “this was one of the best—if not THE best—sets of music I’ve seen in Dizzy’s so far this year. Right up there at the top.” Join us for a festive evening of music as we celebrate Oliphant’s 88th birthday and launch the 2017 Coca-Cola Generations in Jazz Festival.

 

This event is part of our 8th annual Coca-Cola Generations in Jazz Festival, showcasing some of the top rising stars of jazz alongside some of the artists who have contributed to making this art form what it is today. The Coca-Cola Generations in Jazz Festival runs from September 1–October 1, 2017. View the full line-up here.
