Review: Kelley Johnson at Kitano, New York

Review by Andrew Freund

Kelley Johnson Quartet
Kitano, New York
October 15, 2014

Early in her first set, Kelley Johnson, joined by a freshly minted band, the lyrical, responsive pianist Anthony Wonsey, the powerfully rich bassist Matt Clohesy and the resourceful drummer Jon Wikan, gave us Stephen Sondheim’s “Anyone Can Whistle.”  Kelley often turns to theater songs, for their narrative and emotional clarity and sturdy musical structures, and here was a plaintive statement of modern life’s opportunities and inhibitions, transformed into musical autobiography.  Johnson explored dualities, from nimble half-scat to notes in her very lowest register, seemingly implying, as the song does, that this is today’s human condition, so many of us reaching widely in multiple directions, while restraining ourselves in the poignancy of self-awareness.

We seek transcendence.  Epiphanies from our wisest fellow travelers.  A few sets from Kelley Johnson reliably supply just that, go-for-it unguarded commitment to each song, matched by trademark blues and irrepressible swing.  Kelley is conversational, spicy, silly with yearning; she chews on notes as might a great storyteller.  We hear echoes of Carmen McRae, now leveling with listeners, soon flying light and free – and also Abbey Lincoln, that hard-won, hip, liberal wisdom.  Kelley is a guide, and in her joys and cautions, she is a delight.

Here was “Home,” Johnson’s deepest masterpiece, her setting of Jim Knapp’s melody (one of her strengths, lending great jazz tunes the words they were meant to have), a time-defying existential journeying to yes: “back home.”  Anthony Wonsey’s bluesy intro cast the song in a new mood, and Kelley was there, discovering fresh truths, utterly “in the moment.”  “Moment to Moment,” a reflectively passionate Mancini/Mercer love song, took the band into Coltrane territory, in an ever-expanding gorgeous churn.  Richard Rodgers’ “Sweetest Sounds” was recast in slow swing, from declaration to rumination.

Johnson honored one of her musical progenitors, the insinuating Horace Silver, with her take on “Nica’s Dream,” here rendered as a misterioso tango.  Abbey Lincoln’s “Should’ve Been,” another life journey in miniature, gave each player a feature, Clohesy taking the tune into time with an establishing down-low solo, Wikan addressing his drum kit with hands only, Wonsey beautifully expansive.  Kelley’s drama emerged slowly, but soon enough her singing turned deeply ardent, her band-of-an-evening fully engaged along with her, blowing hard.

I have been listening to Kelley Johnson for many years.  I’ve seen her attain musical maturity, this developed sense of proportion from an artist so dedicated to improvisatory truths.  Yet she still reminds us that her stock in trade is the ecstasy of musical discovery.  She is forever on a path, and some of us are lucky to be able to tap into her new glories and discoveries as they unfurl over years.

Industrial Revelation wins Stranger Genius Award

Posted 20 October, 2014 in Seattle Jazz - Comments Off comments

Industrial Revelation (Ahamefule J.Oluo, Josh Rawlings, D’Vonne Lewis, and Evan Flory-Barnes) was awarded The Stranger’s Genius Award for Music on Saturday night at The Moore Theater.

from The Stranger:

It is common for young jazz musicians of our day to incorporate hiphop into their work. Some do this successfully, but most badly. But always their reason for turning to and borrowing beats from hiphop is rotten: They feel jazz by itself is no longer relevant. This is not the music of our times. The current generation is all about Kanye West and not Miles Davis. Indeed, jazz is now considered America’s classical music—meaning, it’s music for institutions like the university and the museum.

That’s not how Industrial Revelation think of jazz. The group has four members—D’Vonne Lewis (drums), Evan Flory-Barnes (bass), Josh Rawlings (keyboards), and Ahamefule J. Oluo (trumpet). All are trained primarily as jazz musicians and play in a number of jazz bands and venues around town. However, IR’s 2013 album Oak Head makes it clear that when these four men make music together, they cannot be classified as a jazz band. IR have a sound that is not determined by one genre, but instead is overdetermined by multiple genres—hiphop, indie rock, punk, soul, and so on. But here is what makes IR truly unique and worthy of the status of Genius: Their mission as musicians is not to save jazz or to be relevant to younger audiences. Absent from their live shows and two albums is exactly that kind of desperation and scheming. What we hear instead are tunes composed and performed by four very talented musicians who are naturally, effortlessly, constantly inventive.

The Llahngaelhyn revived tonight!

Posted 12 October, 2014 in Seattle Jazz - Comments Off comments

Almost a year ago the Northwest jazz scene lost an exceptionally talented and eccentric figure when bassist/pianist Jerome “Jerry” Heldman died of pneumonia.

Mr. Heldman was the proprietor and also a performer at the Llahngaelhyn, a legendary coffee house located in the fairy castle-like building just south of the University Bridge that hosted jazz from 1965 to 1968.

As the Seattle Times recounted, “The Llahngaelhyn was known for all-night jam sessions, where touring musicians such as pianists McCoy Tyner and Chick Corea and saxophonist Roland Kirk dropped by, and local players such as bassist David Friesen, guitarist Larry Coryell, saxophonist Carlos Ward and guitarist Ralph Towner cut their teeth. The late Seattle beat poet, Jesse Bernstein, was also a regular.”

On Sunday, October 12th at 6:00pm, The Llahngaelhyn will be reborn for a night at Sebi’s Bistro with a night of music by the David Frisen Quintet with many special guests.

The concert is in conjunction with the release of Jerry Heldman, “Revelation(s),” on Origin Records. For the recording, Friesen compiled tapes from live recordings of Morning Star, his quartet with Heldman in the early ’70s, as a tribute to a singular musician and friend.

Benny Green Trio on Jazz Northwest

Posted 11 October, 2014 in Seattle Jazz - Comments Off comments

The Benny Green Trio performs at the 2014 Jazz Port Townsend Festival.

Pianist Benny Green leads his trio in an exciting concert airing on Jazz Northwest on Sunday October 12 at 2 PM Pacific on 88.5 KPLU and streaming on kplu.org . David Wong is on bass and Rodney Green is the drummer. The concert was recorded last July at Centrum’s Jazz Port Townsend for this broadcast.

Benny Green is a powerful pianist with a deep sense of swing. Not surprising, because he came up as a sideman in two great universities of the road, as a member of Betty Carter’s group and with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. Another pivotal experience was being chosen by Oscar Peterson for the Glen Gould International Protégé Prize which included extensive mentoring by Oscar Peterson.

Jazz Northwest is recorded and produced by Jim Wilke for 88.5 KPLU and streaming at kplu.org. The program is also available as a podcast after the broadcast.

Next week: John Gilbreath joins Jim Wilke for Part 2 of a conversation with music samples, previewing the balance of the Earshot Jazz Festival which continues through November 11 in Seattle.
