While being one of our community’s top jazz saxophonists and flutists, like so many great jazz artists through the decades, Hanah Jon Taylor seems to have garnered greater accolades in Europe and other foreign locales than in his own backyard. Over the years Taylor has brought his highly-intuitive and envelope-pushing style of playing to enthusiastic audiences in all corners of the globe. Just returning from concerts in Poland and Paris, he will bring to Madison a top-flight group of Chicago musicians including pianist Jim Baker, Alex Wing on bass, guitar and oud, and percussionist Dushun Mosley for our “Jazz on a Sunday” spring series finale.

Episode 276 - Freedy JohnstonEpisode 276 - Freedy Johnston

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 13:00:58 -0500

After Rolling Stone and Spin hailed his 1992 release, “Can You Fly” a masterpiece, its success led to a major label deal with Elektra (produced by Butch Vig), for whom Johnston released “This Perfect World in 1994, which included his breakthrough hit, “Bad Reputation”.  Other critically acclaimed albums followed and critics have continue to praise Johnston effusively, solidifying his reputation as one of the finest and most singular voices in the singer-songwriter genre.  Splitting his time between NYC and Madison, you may have caught Freedy in past years in rare Madison shows with Garbage alums, Butch Vig and Doug Erikson and Madison main-stays James “Pie Cown, Bill “Stick” Bielefeld and Jay Moran in their clandestine cover-band, The Know-It-All-Boyfriends.

An active and exciting new songwriter on the Madison and WI scenes, Brandon Beebe was the recent recipient of a 2012 Madison Music Award for “Best New Artist”. “Gently finger-picked acoustic guitar and vocals are deceptive; a close listen reveals layers of delicate sounds that are simply a joy to delve into. At times he can seem much older than his years. His lyrics are deeply felt and bear the mark of someone who has a lifetime of experiences to draw from.” (Rick Tvedt / Local Sounds Magazine)

Yuriy Kolosovskiy was born in Rostov-on-Don Russia and started playing the Prima Domra at age 9. He spent 6 years in public music school after which he attended Rostov State College of Music (from 2000-2004) studying music composition, conducting and orchestration. While in College, he received numerous awards for his outstanding talent and technique. After Graduation, Kolosovskiy had the honor of being a soloist in the Rostov State Folk Philharmonic Orchestra with whom he played for two and a half years. In 2006, he moved to Madison, Wisconsin where he now resides. Since moving here, Kolosovskiy has played with the University of Wisconsin Russian Folk Orchestra where his talent has been showcased (most recently in the piece “Woolen Boots” this last season).
