Since Duke Ellington 'discovered' Dollar Brand (known now is Abdullah Ibrahim) in 1963, the western world has become aware of the strong and beautiful influences that African music has had on jazz.

Annie Booth Trio Guest Sessions feat. Shane Endsley

Wednesday, September 28, 2016 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
This event does not repeat

Denver based pianist and composer Annie Booth began the piano at a young age and started playing jazz in high school. She went on to study music at the collegiate level, earning a BM in jazz piano performance at the University of Colorado-Boulder in 2011.

Annie has become a force in the Denver jazz scene with recent awards as Westword Magazine's winner in the 'Best In Denver' jazz category for both 2015 and 2016 and a recipient of an ASCAP Young Jazz Composers Award.  In addition to her notable work as a recording artist and bandleader, she is an accomplished side-woman, playing often at Nocturne with a number of bands and very recently featured in the Greg Gisbert Quartet tour of Mexico through the 'New York Jazz All-Stars' concert series.

The trio is comprised of long-time friends and bandmates Patrick McDevitt (bass) and Alejandro Castaño (drums). Appearing in their second artist in residency the trio is hosting 'Guest Sessions' and featuring weekly collaborations with iconic musicians from Denver's thriving scene including: Josh Quinlan, Greg Gisbert, Shane Endsley, and John Gunther.

GUEST ARTIST: Shane Endsley

Endsley born in Denver, Colorado studied trumpet, percussion, and composition at the Eastman School of Music in New York, eventually residing in Brooklyn, NY where he is steadily built his reputation as one of the most unique voices on the trumpet today. DownBeat magazine named him as one of the “Top 25″ trumpeters of his generation and he was cited as a Rising Star in the 2013 Critics Poll and in 2013, JazzTimes readers voted him the “Best Trumpet Player under 40.”

A truly modern and dynamic musician, he can be found on recordings ranging from modern instrumentalists Steve Coleman, Dave Binney, and Donny McCaslin, to folk and rock icons like Ani DiFranco, Erin McKeown, and Pearl Jam. Shane is a founding member of the Grammy nominated group Kneebody, with their debut recording on Concord Records, The Line, to be released in September 2013.  In 2011, Shane released his second recording as a leader, debuting on Low Electrical Records, then The Other by Shane Endsley and The Music Band. This album was named one of the 10 Best Jazz Albums of 2010 by The Los Angeles Times.

Recent projects include working with Chris Speed, Charlie Hunter and Ben Allison. Shane has also toured, performed, or recorded with Ravi Coltrane, John Hollenbeck, Tim Berne, and Jason Mraz. An accomplished drummer and composer, Shane is constantly expanding his musical vocabulary. He dove into the intricate ornamental style of the Balkan brass bands with the powerhouse 10-piece group, Slavic Soul Party, and has ventured into the lilting rhythms of Brazilian Forro and Maracatu with Scott Kettner of Nation Beat and Maracatu NY.

“Jazz keeps slowly widening, and the young trumpeter Shane Endsley is working calmly and effectively at the perimeter.” – The New York Times

The Soul Message Band feat. Chris Foreman & Greg Ward

This event does not repeat

THE SOUL MESSAGE BAND

Chris Foreman is a masterful musician and heir to the throne occupied by the soulful, bluesy jazz organ legends who were once his influence. Blind at birth, Foreman started playing piano at age five and began formal training at seven. As a teenager he was attracted to the organ sounds of Jack McDuff, Groove Holmes, JimmySmith and Jimmy McGriff. This attraction led Chris to pursue playing jazz on the organ, which he undertook through intensive study of recordings. Unlike many African- American musicians whose musical knowledge begins and is established through the church, Chris didn't start his apprenticeship as a church organist until he was almost twenty years old - well after his jazz roots were established. He has arrived at a most exciting blend of blues-gospel and jazz and has developed a stunning command and range on the instrument. The blend of his sound is evident in his professional experience, which has included work with Hank Crawford, Albert Collins, Bernard Purdie, The Mighty Blue Kings and Deep Blue Organ Trio.

Drummer Greg Rockingham began playing when he was just three years old and debuted as a professional musician at age five in his father's jazz ensemble. An alumnus of the famed Interlochen Arts Academy and Northeastern University, he has won numerous musical awards from the Notre Dame Jazz Festival. Greg has performed or recorded with a wide range of famous names, including the orchestras of Glenn Miller and Guy Lombardo, vocalists Freddie Cole, Patty Page and Jerry Vale and instrumentalists Nat Adderley, Kenny Burrell, Charles Earland, Irene Reid, Ellis Marsalis, Nancy Wilson, and Deep Blue Organ Trio.

Lee Rothenberg was born in Philadelphia and started playing guitar at the age of 14 after studying classical piano for 8 years. His obsession with jazz began at age 16 after spending a summer at Interlochen Arts Camp where he devoted many hours listening to Wes Montgomery, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane in the listening library. He moved to Evanston, IL in 2000 to attend Northwestern University where he studied with jazz pianist Mike Kocour. Since his arrival in 2005, guitarist Lee Rothenberg has emerged as an in-demand sideman in the Chicago Jazz Scene. Noted for a style that is deeply rooted in the Jazz Guitar Tradition, Lee's playing exhibits the sacred elements of melody, swing, and creativity. Lee has performed as both a leader and sideman at venues such as The Green Mill, Andy's, the Jazz Showcase, Pete Millers's, and the Jazz Estate with a venerable list of chicago artists such as Chris Forman, Dennis Carroll, Greg Rockingham, George Fludas, Greg Ward, Dan Trudell, and Bobby Broom. Currently he is working on a quartet record with legendary Multi-Instrumentalist, Ira Sullivan that includes Dennis Carroll on bass, and George Fludas on drums. Stay tuned!! “Lee Rothenberg is a confident, groovin' player that pulls his own weight!!', Chris Foreman.

New York Saxophonist Greg Ward has had the opportunity to perform and record with a varied group of distinguished peers and luminaries including Prefuse 73, Lupe Fiasco, Tortoise, William Parker, Andrew D’Angelo, and Mike Reed. A 2004 graduate of Northern Illinois University, Ward spent years cutting his teeth on the Chicago jazz scene, taking advantage of every opportunity that was offered to him including projects for the International Contemporary Ensemble, Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s Chamber Music Series, the Peoria Ballet Company and the Jazz Institute of Chicago.

Since his arrival on the NYC scene in 2009, he’s produced a number of adventurous, widely praised recordings as a bandleader and composer. In recent years, he’s composed and performed a commission for the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra and was selected as one of the two New Music USA Van Lier Fellows and was commissioned by NYC’s Jazz Gallery to write a visionary multi-media piece for septet inspired by the life and work of renowned artist / sculptor, Preston Jackson. Ward's most recent recording, released in 2016 on Dave Douglas' Greenleaf record label is entitled Touch My Beloved’s Thought.
