Rising Stars at Bake’s Place: The Mulherkar-Clausen Quintet

The Mulherkar-Clausen Quintet

4135 Providence Point Dr SE, Issaquah, 425-391-3335, 7:30pm

Bake’s Place recently announced the launch of the “Rising Stars” concert series, which showcases up and coming young musicians from the Pacific Northwest. The region is home to some of the most outstanding high school jazz programs in the nation and has long been the starting point for some of the brightest musicians breaking into the scene today. Although many of these artists are busy with their musical studies and blooming careers, Bake’s offers an open door and an opportunity to play when their travels bring them back to the area. “We are dedicated to supporting these exciting, young musicians,” say club owner Craig Baker.

The series kicks off this Friday with the Mulherkar-Clausen Quintet led by Juilliard classmates Riley Mulherkar and Andy Clausen.

Riley Mulherkar is a prodigy of the prestigious Garfield High School jazz program. Described by the New Yorker as a “brilliant teen-aged trumpeter,” Mulherkar is already making a name for himself. He has been recognized by Downbeat Magazine and also received the “Ella Fitzgerald Outstanding Soloist” award at the 2010 Essentially Ellington Competition in New York City. He has shared the stage with the likes of Wynton Marsalis, Benny Golson, Jimmy Heath, Paquito D’Rivera and Roy Hargrove and has performed nationally and internationally at such festivals as Umbria Jazz Festival, Jazz a Vienne, Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival and the Reno Jazz Festival. In August, Riley will be joining fellow Julliard students for a tour of Brazil as part of Julliard’s Student Outreach program. He will be performing in collaboration with other jazz musicians as well as actors and actresses.

Trombonist/composer Andy Clausen has enjoyed an equally impressive trajectory. He rose through the ranks of the acclaimed Roosevelt High School jazz program. At just 14 years of age, Andy was already writing original compositions and leading his own sextet, which played throughout the Seattle area. In 2009, he was named as the “Emerging Artist of the Year” by Earshot Jazz and in that same year, also won the Gerald Wilson Award for Jazz Composition from the Monterey Jazz Festival. The Andy Clausen Large Ensemble has also garnered high praise; the New York Times hailed the band as “sleek, dynamic large group jazz.”  Andy has performed in across the U.S. as well as in Italy, France, Austria, Slovenia and Croatia. His compositions have been performed by Winton Marsalis and recorded by Cuong Vu.

Riley and Andy recently completed their freshmen year at Juilliard and have joined forces to front their own quintet, which is presently touring throughout the Northwest. Rounding out the band are Gus Carns on piano, Mark Hunter on bass and D’Vonne Lewis on drums.

For this performance, dinner service starts at 6pm. Showtime is 7:45pm.  Reservations can be made by calling 425-391-3335 or by sending an email to [email protected]. Early reservations are highly recommended.

Over the past few years, Mulherkar has received numerous awards and accolades, including being recognized as an “outstanding soloist” in DownBeat magazine’s 30th Annual Student Musician Awards. Mulherkar will be attending the Julliard School of Music in the fall. Joining Riley on the bandstand will be Gus Carns on piano, Carmen Rothwell on bass, Zach Para on drums and Carl Majeau on tenor sax. Riley and his band will be performing on July 16.

The Jazz Hang: Sandy Cressman & Homage to Brazil

Sandy Cressman

Sandy Cressman is a San Francisco jazz vocalist, who has devoted the majority of her career to the study and performance of Brazilian music. This Saturday, Sandy will be appearing at  along with the Jovino Santos Neto Trio and together they will perform her Homage to Brazil- a “musical journey through the world of Brazilian jazz” at Bake’s Place. Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Sandy about her career and about Brazilian music. She was warm and engaging and clearly very passionate about what she does. The following are excerpts from our conversation:

It is clear from your bio that you’ve had a natural affinity for Brazilian music almost your entire life. What about it resonates with you?

In knew the first time I heard it, there was something about the passionate nature of the music that was appealing. Performing it myself really suited my own personal expression. Early on in junior high, I heard a girl sing Sergio Mendes’s hit “Mas Que Nada” and it totally floored me.  I didn’t know how to go out and seek the music at that time. But by the time I was into college and into jazz, I heard it again…..Tania Maria, Flora Purim….and was really excited. One time I was at a Pat Metheny concert, and the music that was playing on the break was so beautiful that I walked to the soundboard to find out who it was. It was Ivan Lins. I went out and bought as much as his music as I could.

Later, I was on touring Japan with a Japanese group. The guitarist for that group gave me recordings of Djavan to listen to. I was overwhelmed. When I got back from Japan, I bought all the Brazilian music I could find. At one point, the pianist Marco Silva sat in as a sub for Pastiche. He brought me cassettes of Brazilian music and fed my addiction further. In 1995, Marco asked me to come and sing Brazilian music with him. It was a little café duo gig. Each week we would bring in new tunes to try out. That was really the start for me.

Why do you think the popularity of Brazilian music is so enduring?

I think the rhythm is infectious. There’s a feeling of passion that’s very Brazilian yet not restricted to Brazil. A lot of people feel that passion. It makes you feel really good. It really takes you somewhere.

Tell me about putting together the music for “Homage to Brazil.”

Well, my first record was “Homenegem Brasileira”. I have known Jovino for fourteen years. We met at California-Brazil summer camp. He’s one of the rare pianists that can play the broad repertoire of Brazilian music that I like to sing with authenticity and freshness. The last time we played at Bake’s, it was Jobim’s 80th birthday. At that time, we decided to do a tribute to Jobim. This time, we decided to mix up composers. We came up with some songs that our quartet can explore and have fun with. Basic arrangements but not everything is planned.

Tell me a little bit about playing with Jovino.

Jovino is just a stellar musician. He knows his craft, knows Brazilian music and knows jazz. He has a certain openness to the unexpected and he’s non-judgmental, which makes it such a comfortable experience to play music together. I’m a guest on his soil. He respects the work that I’ve done to do it as well as I do. It feels like I’m being collaborated with and respected.

How do you think your approach to the music differs from other vocalists and musicians?

I’m not Brazilian but I try to be true to the spirit of the music. The musicians I use, the way I sing and phrase it. I typically sing to a non-Brazilian audience and I am able to give them a background on the tunes and why I like them. They get a history and exposure to things they might not have heard before.

To someone who is new to Brazilian music and wants some ideas as to what recordings to check out, what suggestions would you make?

Joao Guilberto. Also, I have a Brazilian music discography on the teaching page on my website.

What is playing on your i-Pod right now?

Chico Pinheiro. Really cool, modern Brazilian music.

Jennifer Lee Quartet at Bake’s Place

On Saturday, August 1st, Bake’s Place welcomes San Francisco vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Lee to the stage. Lee’s musical roots are in straight-ahead jazz and she got her start as an accompanist for vocalists in her college jazz band. It wasn’t long before Lee discovered her own singing chops and she soon began performing as a vocalist as well. Her years as an pianist and guitarist afforded her with a musician’s sensibility for the harmonic armature of the music, and she was able to successfully put her own signature on interpretations of the standards. Lee has a particular passion for the music of Brazil. She accompanies herself on guitar and songs in near perfect Portuguese. In addition, she is a member of Doce Brazil, which has played at the San Francisco Jazz Summerfest as well as multiple venues and festivals throughout the Bay area. Lee has recorded two solo CD’s: Jaywalkin’ and Quiet Joy, the latter of which was just released in spring of this year. On both of these recordings, Lee collaborated with San Diego guitarist Peter Sprague who served as co-arranger and co-producer. Sprague is the founder of SBE Records, the label for both of Lee’s recordings.

Jennifer’s appearance at Bake’s is part of the ongoing Visiting Songbird series, which features top-tier vocal jazz talent culled from across the United States. For this performances, Lee will be joined by esteemed Northwest musicians John Stowell on guitar, Jeff Johnson on bass and Mark Ivester on drums.

Seattle Times: Kat Parra, a voice with personality and soul

FRI – SAT, Nov 14-15 – Kat Parra Quartet

4135 Providence Point Dr. SE
Issaquah, WA 98029
phone: 425-391-3335

from The Seattle Times:
by Andrew Gilbert
Special to The Seattle Times

At first listen, Kat Parra’s recent CD “Azucar de Amor” seems like a typical well-played session of Latin jazz. A veteran of the Bay Area salsa scene, Parra knows her way around clave, the fundamental pulse of Afro-Cuban music. The album’s title track, for instance, puts a mambo spin on “Sugar,” a funky jazz hit for Stanley Turrentine.

But Parra isn’t content with tried-and-true formulas. Since the release of her impressive 2006 debut “Birds In Flight,” the Oakland-based singer has created an ambitious repertoire based on a treasure trove of Ladino songs written when Sephardic Jews lived in Muslim-dominated Spain more than five centuries ago. The rhythmically expansive arrangements give a whole new meaning to Latin jazz.

“When I started digging deeper into the Golden Age of Spain, when Jews and Muslims lived closely together and shared innovations, I was blown away and fascinated by the period,” says Parra, who performs Friday and Saturday at Bake’s Place as part of the Visiting Songbirds Series; she brings her superlative working band featuring bassist Peter Barshay, drummer Paul van Wageningen and pianist Murray Low, who’s responsible for many of the charts.

Seattle Times: Jeanie Bryson Quartet plays Bake’s Place

From The Seattle Times:

Head to Bake’s Place this weekend, and you’ll find yourself feeling it three ways: in the food, the alcohol and in Jeanie Bryson’s voice.

In fact, Bake’s Place in Issaquah might just be the best place to slip into a jazz coma. It’s called a “place” because it’s a repurposed house where you can eat dinner, drink or just watch and hear jazz artists in a “living room” where ghosts of families past watched TV and played Scrabble.

And Jeanie Bryson is the aural equivalent of a giant throw pillow. The daughter of Dizzy Gillespie sings in a gauzy romance voice, mixing the sexy with the Latin with the understated; she pulls you into her lovely haze with taste enough not to needlessly flit and float. Her business is soft-focus, misty-eyed romance. And business is good.

The Jeanie Bryson Quartet plays as part of Bake’s Place’s Visiting Songbirds Series. See the full three-course menu at www.bakesplace.org.
