To honor the great Abdullah Ibrahim, Jeff Jenkins brings Soweto and other traditional African rhythms, into focus while performing Ellington, original, straight ahead, and related bebop material. This effusive, innovative upbeat celebration of music will be performed by Greg Harris, Mike MarlierPatrick McDevitt, and Anisha Rush.

Emmet Cohen Quartet

Tuesday, September 20, 2016 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
This event does not repeat

Multifaceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen has emerged as one of his generation's pivotal figures in music and the related arts. A recognized prodigy, Cohen began Suzuki method piano instruction at age three, and his playing quickly became a mature melding of musicality, technique, and concept. Downbeat observed that his 'nimble touch, measured stride and warm harmonic vocabulary indicate he's above any convoluted technical showmanship.' In the same spirit, Cohen himself has noted that playing jazz is 'about communicating the deepest level of humanity and individuality; it's essentially about connections,' both among musicians and with audiences. Possessing a fluid technique, an innovative tonal palette, and an expansive repertoire, Cohen plays with the command of a seasoned veteran and the passion of an artist fully devoted to his medium.

In addition, Emmet Cohen has established a comprehensive role in the world of the creative arts that extends beyond performing. He is avid about the inter-generational transfer of artistic knowledge, history, and traditions. Himself an alumnus of the YoungArts Foundation, he now produces and directs multidisciplinary high school YoungArts programs nationally that employ creative writing, theater, dance, visual arts, cinematography, music, voice, and jazz. Cohen also visits 50 schools yearly through Jazz at Lincoln Center's 'Jazz for Young People' program and regularly presents jazz history and performance lectures. To honor the pioneers of America's unique musical idiom, Cohen is producing the 'Masters Legacy Series,' a celebratory set of recordings and interviews honoring legendary jazz musicians--he is the pianist on the first recording that features the legendary Jimmy Cobb.

With a large range, harmonic genius, rich tone, and dazzling technique, Trumpeter Greg Gisbert is considered by many to the modern-day Clark Terry. A graduate of the Berklee School of Music, Greg has spent his musical life playing with stars of jazz world (Maria Schneider, Buddy Rich, Gary Burton, The Woody Herman Band, Toshiko Akiyoshi, and Ken Peplowski, to name but a few).

Greg calls Denver home, and was recently an Artist-in-Residence at Nocturne. Today he performs regularly with Jazz at Lincoln Center, and in clubs throughout the world. As an educator Greg has mentored and taught scores of students, and continues to influence the future of the music today.
