Buddy Catlett Tribute this Monday at Jazz Alley

Posted 28 November, 2014 in Seattle Jazz - Comments Off comments

Buddy Catlett
Celebration of Life

Mon, December 1st at 7:30pm
JAZZ ALLEY
2033 6th Avenue
Seattle WA 98121

Reservations: (206) 441-9729

Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley honors the memory of late legendary bassist Buddy Catlett who performed with such musical greats as Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Quincy Jones, Ray Charles, and countless others. There will be a special concert, “Buddy Catlett: Celebration of Life,” on Dec. 1, from 7:30 pm to 10:30 pm. The concert will include performances by The Legacy Quartet with Clarence Acox, The Bob Hammer Trio featuring Ham Carson with pianist Bob Hammer, clarinetist/saxophonist Ham Carson, drummer Ken French, and bassist Michael Barnett, and other special guests. Folks are welcome to join the jam sessions.

Catlett, who passed on Nov. 12, performed in venues all over the world, including Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley, and on the often-heard recording of “Fly Me to the Moon” with Count Basie and Frank Sinatra, as well as “What a Wonderful World” with Louis Armstrong. He received local recognition for his musical accomplishments in 1991 when he was inducted by Earshot Jazz into the Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame. Then on February 21, 2008, when the City of Seattle proclaimed it Buddy Catlett Day.

This is a free, all-ages event. Jazz Alley is located at 2033 6th Ave. in downtown Seattle. Free parking is located at 2010 5th Avenue in the Westin Building Garage (not The Westin Hotel Garage).

Friday Oct 24th at the Royal Room, the 2014 Earshot Jazz Festival presented New York saxophonist/ vocalist Jessica Lurie, another returning hero of the Seattle jazz community, reuniting with electric bassist Arne Livingston, and drummer Dale Fanning, for a jazz-festival recreation of the great, forward-looking, and absolutely slamming power trio of the late 1990s Seattle scene, Living Daylights. After forming in 1995, the Daylights performed locally and toured with artists like John Scofield, Groove Collective, Robert Walter, Maceo Parker, and Soulive. They also joined Wayne Shorter’s Highlife band in the 1995 Earshot Jazz Festival.

The Stranger once wrote of the group: “Living Daylights has a lot more wattage than the usual pallid jam band. They get their jazz-rock groove on, but with a little outer-Balkan edge.” We are delighted to showcase this landmark recreation of a distinctly Seattle phenomenon. Expect guest artists and additional wattage on the late set.

As a solo artist, Lurie creates a pulsing, brimming, and expansive sound, pushing stylistic barriers not simply to ramble from one genre to another, but to construct new musical landscapes. Lurie’s musicianship is born from her discipline to life-long music composition and improvisation. She has expanded to many projects, including 2012’s Megaphone Heart by the Jessica Lurie Ensemble. near the end of the first set Kate Olson and Naomi Siegel came up and joined them.

CD Review: Issue #1 by Trio Tritticali

Posted 23 November, 2014 in CD Reviews - Comments Off comments

Review by Andrew Freund

trittCDcoverIssue #1
Trio Tritticali

Multikulti jazz is hardly a new phenomenon, but here is a group that speaks in a collective voice that is brave and sly and remarkably its own. Issue #1, the debut recording of the genre-bending, all-strings Trio Tritticali, offers us music so fresh, assured, and unique, to register as a delightful surprise.

Trio Tritticali is the joint project of three virtuosi, Helen Yee, a Yale-trained wide-ranging violin dynamo (and throat singer), Leanne Darling, a violist with particular affinities for Arabic music and electronic looping, and Loren Kiyoshi Dempster, a University of Washington-trained cellist of “world music” sympathies, who also plays the didgeridoo, sometimes in tandem with his father, the UW trombone guru, Stuart Dempster. That such iconoclasts choose to so subsume their strong individual identities to a unified group sound is remarkable.

Strings-only jazz, an outlier to American tradition, originated overseas (with the thirties Django/Grappelli chug-chug-chug Quintet of the Hot Club of France), so little wonder at this New York-based group’s name, or musical globe-hopping. But, while forging a complicated identity, outdistancing previous categories, Tritticali is a unit that was gigging together for four years before recording, and by now their playing displays the unity of purpose of the finest string quartets. Their sound is comfortable, organic, cohesive, and insidiously thrilling.

Pardon the pun, but Trio Tritticali finds no need to be high-strung. They dig in, certainly, and don’t stint on passion, but on their own chosen terms. How refreshing – a new recording that answers mostly to itself. Over and over, they display absolute mutual trust and unity of purpose. Their arrangements are surprisingly complex, time-defyingly pensive here, propulsive or gamboling there, moments that prove that they have learned their Philip Glass lessons.

Trio Tritticali is both daring and conversational, a fascinating combination. They traffic in sensual release, but in the context of formal restraint. Their CD matches band originals and arrangements to Jobim’s Corcovado and Oliver Nelson’s Stolen Moments, visiting Argentine tango and keening Near Eastern mysteries, along with evocations of traditional Japan and other ports of call. Sometimes redolent of the hippest of salons, the music finds time to swing, while telling one
overall, sly, knowing story.

Throughout Issue #1, there is an ongoing sense that the listener is being invited to share a passel of musical secrets, many with implications that only reveal themselves over time. So, as a trio of stringed companions explore old traditions along new pathways, this is an invitation I would advise the world to accept.
