Date Time Event Description
Aug-17-18 07:00 PM Steve Carrington Quartet featuring Cyrus Chestnut on piano

The vibrant, full-bodied sound that emerges from Steve Carrington’s saxophone is at once old-school and avant-garde. From his childhood in East Baltimore to his tour of duty in the United States Army… from his dedicated musicianship to his medical scholarship… Steve’s lifetime of varied experiences yield a signature musical style that is dynamic, powerful, and deeply spiritual. The depth of his interpretation… the confidence in his approach… his rich, expressive tone… all conspire to stir the soul.

Here’s how Chick Corea described the experience of hearing the Jazz Healer play. After inviting Steve to sit in on a recent performance at New York’s legendary Blue Note, he said: “Keep that big, beautiful smile and that big, beautiful sound.”

Steve’s big sound and even bigger smile change the energy in any venue, from a low-key, late-night gig at The Fat Cat, to an elegant, early-evening concert at the Atrium in Jazz at Lincoln Center. While playing, Steve causes his tenor sax to chuckle. While pausing to listen to his bandmates, he can’t help but accompany them with his unmistakable, infectious laughter — it’s a musical instrument all by itself!

Aug-21-18 08:00 PM ELEW

.

Once upon a time, Eric Lewis was a decorated, up-and-coming jazz pianist, a sideman for Wynton Marsalis and Elvin Jones, among others, and the winner of the 1999 Thelonious Monk International Piano competition. A decade into his career, he had an epiphany. The songs he was playing weren’t speaking to him the way he wanted them to: while they were part of the traditional jazz repertoire, they weren’t part of his own emotional repertoire. On the other hand, there were contemporary rock songs whose lyrics meant the world to him. Lewis considered the landscape, drew the curtain, and reemerged as ELEW, a revolutionary artist who combines virtuosic skill on the grand piano with an unprecedented openness to modern pop and rock music.

Jazz pianists have always interpreted popular songs. Art Tatum did. Bud Powell did. But at some point, jazz detached from rock and roll. ELEW has fused the two together and, in the process, created a new genre, rockjazz. Over the course of two albums, ELEW has interpreted and reenergized songs by Coldplay, Nirvana, Radiohead, the Foo Fighters, The Bravery, Michael Jackson, and more. And the choice of material is only part of rockjazz. ELEW treats the grand piano the way a traditional rock front man treats the guitar, with an explosively physical style that includes entering the instrument to pluck the strings directly. Onstage, he is overtly theatrical, standing to play and even wearing specially designed pieces of forearm armor called vambraces. In addition to his groundbreaking recordings and performances, ELEW has collaborated with a host of other artists. He joined forces with platinum-selling rapper Lil Wayne, providing the piano background for “IANAHB,” the opening track on Lil Wayne’s 2013 album “I Am Not a Human Being II.”

Last year, Complexions Contemporary Ballet Co-Artistic Directors/Founders Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson announced a five-year partnership with ELEW that named him Composer in Residence at CCB. This partnership will yield a new work every year through 2017; the first fruits of the collaboration were presented in November 2012 at Complexions Contemporary Ballet’s New York Season at the Joyce Theater. Perhaps the most exciting development in ELEW’s evolution as an artist is his burgeoning career as a DJ. While turntable artists combine songs with the aid of technology, ELEW is able to present them simultaneously with his own mastery of the piano. The result is yet another unprecedented hybrid—this time, the ingredients are not rock and jazz, but rather vinyl and ivory, the concert and then the afterparty.

As a result of his records and his performances, his devotion to both the history of jazz and the importance of redirecting that history, ELEW has earned a legion of prominent fans, including Josh Groban (who he supported on Groban’s “Straight to You” tour of more than sixty North American arenas), Dave Matthews, Naomi Campbell, Forest Whitaker, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brooke Shields, and Woody Harrelson. He has performed at the behest of Google, Fendi, Disney, and Mercedes Benz. Donna Karan included his music on her iPhone app. And ELEW has even taken rockjazz to the White House, where he played for Barack and Michelle Obama in the East Room.

He's supported by bassist Sebastian Rios and drummer Kyle Benford. Lauded as one of the top jazz pianists of his generation, Sullivan Fortner is recognized for his virtuosic technique and captivating performances. The winner of three prestigious awards ? a Leonore Annenberg Arts Fellowship, the 2015 Cole Porter Fellowship from the American Pianists Association, and the 2016 Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists ? Sullivan?s music embodies the essence of the blues and jazz as he connects music of all eras and genres through his improvisation. Showtimes are at 7:00 PM and 8:30 pm. Tickets: $25 advance / $30 day of show. For more info call (212) 477-9462 or visit http://zincbar.com.
