Jul-22-19 07:30 PM Monday Nights with WBGO: Andrea Motis Quintet

With vocalist/trumpeter Andrea Motis, saxophonist/bassist Joan Chamorro, pianist Ignasi Terraza, drummer Esteve Pi Ventura, and guitarist Josep Traver.

Singer and trumpeter Andrea Motis makes her anticipated New York City debut at Jazz at Lincoln Center alongside the same remarkably consistent lineup that has brought incredible life to her albums. On Motis’ latest record, Do Outro Lado do Azul, she brings together jazz, Mediterranean influences, and above all, the sounds of Brazil and its legendary composers. Her overall repertoire is even more extensive, however, featuring smart originals, American songbook standards, and more. Motis plays trumpet with a bright, relaxed feel and sings with rare dexterity in Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan, and English. Her extremely tight band really rounds out the performance, holding it down with as a precise, yet soulful rhythm section and contributing plenty of memorable solos of their own. This performance is equally recommended for fans of jazz, Brazilian music, and beyond.

Jul-23-19 07:30 PM Adrian Cox Presents Profoundly Blue

With clarinetist Adrian Cox, pianist Joe Webb, bassist Simon Read, and drummer Gethin Jones.

“London’s most charismatic reedsman.” – TimeOut

Adrian Cox is an extraordinary musician with a deep love for the New Orleans clarinet tradition. Jazz at Lincoln Center fans might recognize him from performing the music of Benny Goodman with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, both here in New York and at The Barbican in London. In Profoundly Blue, Cox celebrates the great hot jazz music of Louisiana-born clarinetist Edmond Hall. Cox and his regular group of Joe Webb, Simon Read, and Gethin Jones will play a number of hits and lesser-known tunes from Hall’s influential career, including music that he recorded with Charlie Christian, Louis Armstrong, Teddy Wilson, Eddie Condon, and Meade Lux Lewis. This excellent tribute has already led to two album recordings, and this event at Dizzy’s Club is your opportunity to catch Profoundly Blue while it’s on tour in the United States.

Jul-24-19 07:30 PM One Step Beyond featuring Eric Person and Bryan Carrott

With saxophonist/flutist Eric Person, trombonist Dion Tucker, vibraphonist Bryan Carrott, bassist Adam Armstrong, and drummer Darrell Green.

World-renowned saxophonist Eric Person has spent decades composing, recording, and performing a broad range of contemporary jazz at the highest level. He has performed and recorded more than 50 records with greats like McCoy Tyner, Dave Holland, Chico Hamilton, John Hicks, Houston Person, Vernon Reid, Will Calhoun, and World Saxophone Quartet, and tonight he teams up with vibraphone and percussion virtuoso Bryann Carrott for their Dizzy’s Club co-headlining debut. A New York native, Carrott studied percussion right down the street at LaGuardia High School of Music & Arta and Performing Arts, and he has since performed with David "Fathead" Newman, Muhal Richard Abrams, Steve Kroon, Dave Douglas, Sam Rivers, Tom Harrell, and many others. After multiple appearances on DownBeat magazine’s Critics and Readers Polls, in 2015 he was named No. 1 Rising Star Vibraphonist. His star continues to rise, and this co-headlining performance with Eric Person and One Step Beyond is yet another achievement worth checking out.

Jul-25-19 07:30 PM Catherine Russell

With vocalist Catherine Russell, guitarist Matt Munisteri, pianist Mark Shane, bassist Tal Ronen, and drummer Mark McLean.

Grammy Award winner Catherine Russell has been one of the most widely recognized jazz vocalists since the release of her debut album in 2006. Her 2017 album, Harlem on My Mind, was nominated for the 2017 Best Jazz Vocal Album Grammy Award, and in April 2019 she released another anticipated recording. Russell’s experience extends far beyond releasing her acclaimed albums as a solo artist; she has also worked with Steely Dan, David Bowie, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, and Levon Helm. She also recently joined the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis on the Big Band Holidays tour for two consecutive years, packing concert halls nationwide. In other words, all types of musicians know their audiences will enjoy the presence of Catherine Russell. Seeing her perform live is an uplifting experience easy to recommend for any fan of jazz vocals, and we’re excited to welcome her back to our most intimate venue, Dizzy’s Club.

Jul-29-19 07:30 PM Mark Gross Quintet + Strings

With saxophonist Mark Gross.

Saxophonist Mark Gross consistently performs with the best musicians around, both as a headliner and in bands like the Jimmy Heath Big Band, John Pizzarelli Big Band, Mingus Big Band, Duke Ellington Orchestra, and the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra. It takes soul and an unfailing commitment to swing—in a huge variety of musical settings—to play in groups like these, and it’s with that spirit that Gross approaches his own shows with strings. The strings’ textures and melodies nicely compliment Gross’ hard-hitting saxophone playing and swinging rhythm section, adding a real freshness to well-loved standards and originals alike. Enjoy one of the top saxophonists on the scene in this admirable integration of swinging small group jazz and bowed strings.
