Oct-23-17 07:30 PM Greg Reitan Trio

With pianist Greg Reitan, bassist Jack Daro, and drummer Dean Koba

“Greg Reitan is firmly committed both to honoring the piano trio tradition and ensuring that it doesn't get stuck in a rut." – JazzTimes

You’ll hear it again and again: the Greg Reitan Trio is “deep, yet accessible;” “within the tradition, yet finding new possibilities.” In a music scene that often struggles to find (or even agree upon) a comfortable balance of tradition and artistic liberty, that elusive balance seems to be a unifying topic in the commentary surrounding Greg Reitan’s trio—a unit that has now worked together for 21 years. Much of the group’s music fits comfortably within the established boundaries of straight-ahead piano jazz, and that actually makes the frequency of this “balance” talking point more significant, as it points to Reitan’s engaging original compositions; smart interpretations of a repertoire including Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, The Beatles, John Coltrane, Chick Corea, and George Gershwin; and a sensitivity, elegance, group cohesion, and technical excellence reminiscent of the all-time great piano trios. This group has found a distinctive voice within a classic aesthetic that will please both dedicated jazz fans and casual listeners.

Oct-25-17 07:30 PM Oran Etkin: Gathering Light

With clarinetist/bass clarinetist/saxophonist Oran Etkin, bassist Ben Allison, guitarist Gilad Hekselman, and drummer Rudy Royston

“Gathering Light is a gloriously global musical mélange that finds Etkin in good company, creating alternately gripping and grooving performances with some of the most distinct personalities on the scene… firm evidence that the world is Etkin's oyster, palette, and muse. This is global jazz done the right way.” – AllAboutJazz.com

Multi-instrumentalist Oran Etkin is known for digging deeply into the sounds of various eras and locations, reimagining them in his own voice. Influenced by Etkin’s cross-cultural musical collaborations, Gathering Light first came about after Etkin spent two years touring in Indonesia, Japan, China, Israel, Belgium, France, and Germany. The rich material featured in this project is inspired by the spontaneous musical exchanges Etkin experienced as well as traditional melodies and rhythms. For this Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola performance, Etkin brings some of the most distinctive and versatile musicians in contemporary jazz: bassist Ben Allison, guitarist Gilad Hekselman, and drummer Rudy Royston.

Oct-26-17 07:30 PM The Mike LeDonne Trio featuring Ron Carter and Jimmy Cobb

With pianist Mike LeDonne, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Jimmy Cobb

“Hearing Mike LeDonne was a startling revelation. I was knocked out.” – Milt Jackson

“Mike LeDonne is one of the most talented pianists of this particular era. He’s incredible.” – Oscar Peterson

Pianist and organist Mike LeDonne made his recording debut in 1988, and he’s still managed to work with a number of the all-time jazz greats: Benny Goodman, Sonny Rollins, Milt Jackson, Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Golson, and more. LeDonne performs around the world as both a sideman and a bandleader, and his Groover Quartet has been a New York City mainstay for the past 14 years. It’s a recipe for success: hard-swinging, groove-focused jazz featuring virtuoso soloists and that distinctive Hammond B-3 organ sound and vibe.
