Day of Jazz 2006

Wed, 01 Nov 2006 12:00:00 PDT

In this One-year Anniversary episode of Yamaha Wind Instrument Podcasts, watch exclusive concert footage from the Yamaha Day of Jazz - presented live from Yamaha Artist Services, Inc. (YASI) in New York City. Part One features Yamaha Artists Jeremy Pelt (flugelhorn) and Christian Howes (Silent Electric Violin). Jeremy Pelt arrived in New York in 1998 after graduating from Berklee College of Music. Once he got there, it wasn't long before he started being noticed by a lot of top musicians in the city. His first professional jazz gig was playing with the Mingus Big Band. Since his arrival, he has been fortunate enough to play with many jazz luminaries- such as Jimmy Heath, Frank Wess, Charli Persip, Keter Betts, Frank Foster, Ravi Coltrane, Winard Harper, Vincent Herring, Ralph Peterson, Lonnie Plaxico, Cliff Barbaro, Nancy Wilson, Bobby Short, Bobby "Blue" Bland, The Skatalites, Cedar Walton and many, many more. Christian Howes has already made an indelible mark and is poised to be a path-finding figure on the contemporary violin. He's won recognition and kudos from artists and critics alike. Says guitar pioneer Les Paul, with whom Christian has made numerous appearances: "There is nobody better than this guy." The prominent artists Howes has performed and/or recorded with include Greg Osby, Randy Brecker, James Carter, Jack DeJohnette, Akua Dixon's Quartette Indigo, Billy Hart, D.D. Jackson, David Murray, Steve Turre's Sextet with Strings, Jane Monheit, Dr. John, Frank Vignola, and Lenny White, to name a few.

Day of Jazz 2006

Wed, 15 Nov 2006 12:00:00 PDT

In this One-year Anniversary episode of Yamaha Wind Instrument Podcasts, watch exclusive concert footage from the Yamaha Day of Jazz - presented live from Yamaha Artist Services, Inc. (YASI) in New York City. Part Two features Yamaha Artists Stefon Harris (vibraphone) and Jeff Coffin (saxophone), plus an all-star jam with Christian Howes (electric violin) and Jeremy Pelt (flugelhorn). Stefon Harris is the most accomplished, innovative and creative vibraphonist-and marimbist-to come down the pike since Milt Jackson and Bobby Hutcherson. Overstatement? PR hype? Naw, son. You see, Stefon has found a way to make music that is nothing less than the aural distillation of the sights, sounds, people, places, events, and culture going down - in and around him. Born in Albany, New York, Harris began playing piano at the age of six. By the eighth grade, he had expanded his proficiency to nearly twenty instruments. While still in high school he earned the principal percussionist chair in the famed Empire State Youth Orchestra. A double-degree graduate of the Manhattan School of Music (BA in classical music, MA in jazz performance), Harris also is a recipient of three Grammy nominations (for Black Action Figure, Kindred, and 2003's soaring 12-piece concert-length jazz suite The Grand Unification Theory), as well as Jazz at Lincoln Center's prestigious Martin E. Segal Award. His resume includes recording and touring gigs with the Max Roach Joe Henderson, Wynton Marsalis, Charlie Hunter, Kenny Barron and Cassandra Wilson. Saxophonist Jeff Coffin has been a Yamaha Artist since 2002. Jeff has a demanding travel schedule as the sax player for Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. In addition to his heavy touring schedule with the Flecktones, Coffin's versatility has made him a highly in-demand session player and he has appeared on nearly 100 recordings. Jeff is also a very active educator, teaching clinics and lessons all over the country. "I am always looking for new things to think about and new ideas to develop musically. I ask people all the time to share with me what they are checking out and I, in turn, try to do the same." Even when Coffin dips into his 'two-horns-at-once' bag, the technique emerges as a natural outgrowth of his musings. Each step along his musical journey has been deliberate with the intention of moving him forward in order to experience the growth, propulsion and movement in his music just as he has in life - both connected at the root of his experiences.

Saxophone Artist Bob Franceschini

Thu, 15 Feb 2007 15:00:00 PDT

A native New Yorker, Bob attended public schools in Harlem and Washington Heights. He begun his musical education in junior high, then entered the High School of Music and Art where he met and played with Kenny Washington, Marcus Miller and Omar Hakim. In the summer following their graduation, these young lions formed a jazz group which played an extended engagement at a club owned by George Benson. This opportunity gained Bob immediate recognition and led to tours with a number of outstanding artists including Tom Browne and Chaka Khan. He then went on to play with George Benson, Woody Shaw, Dave Valentine, Kenny Kirkland, Eddie Palmieri, Michel Camilo, Jorge Dalto, Barry Rogers and others. In 1986 he began touring with Willie Colon. There he had the chance to focus on his Puerto Rican roots and learn about arranging and soloing in latin music. Eventually he became Musical Director for Willie Colon. At the same time he continued doing studio work and jingles and continued to play and record with jazz and fusion groups with such noteworthy musicians as Victor Bailey, Dave Weckl, Anthony Jackson, Darryl Jones and Charlie Sepulveda. In 1992 he went on a world tour with Latin American pop star Emmanuel teaming up with trumpeter Barry Danielian and trombonist Ozzie Melendez. They formed a now highly successful horn section, called "911". They appear in many popular R and B, pop and salsa recordings. Other collaborations of note include a critically acclaimed recording with bassist/composer Anthony Cox, in a quartet which featured pianist Mike Caim and drummer Ralph Peterson. Bob also appears on arranger Chico O'Farrill's latest recording which also received excellent reviews. In 1999 Bob was asked to join guitarist Mike Stern (formerly with Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius, Dave Sanborn,) in his quartet for a world tour, taking the place of previous saxophonists Michael Brecker, Bob Berg, Bob Sheppard and Bobby Malach. The band also featured bassist Lincoln Goines and drummer Dennis Chambers and sometimes drummers Richie Morales or Ben Perowsky. They completed a World Tour in 2000, that began in Europe and continued on to Japan, Australia, the U.S., Israel, Scandinavia and South America.

Trumpet Artists Brian Lynch and Tiger Okoshi

Thu, 01 Mar 2007 23:00:00 PDT

Brian Lynch Bio :: Few musicians embody this 21st century credo as profoundly as the 48-year-old trumpet master. A respected insider within both the hardcore bebop and Latin communities, he's as comfortable negotiating the complexities of clave with Afro-Caribbean pioneer Eddie Palmieri as swinging through advanced harmony with bebop maestro Phil Woods. He's worked in recent years with Buena Vista Social Club alumnus Barbarito Torres, dance remixer Joe Clausell, and the members of the influential Latin alternative group Yerba Buena. He arranges for Japanese pop star Mika Nakashima and producer Shinichi Osawa, has written string charts for Phil Woods, and has played with such pop luminaries as Maxwell, Prince, and Sheila E. He currently holds faculty positions at New York University and the North Netherlands Conservatory, has taught at the Stanford Jazz Workshop, and has conducted workshops in numerous major institutes of learning, including The Eastman School of Music, Dartmouth University, the University of North Texas, and Columbia University, among many others. Many of today's finest young jazz trumpeters call him a mentor. Brian is proud, but it works both ways: the interchange of ideas between he and the "youngbloods" challenges him to keep it real and keep practicing! Tiger Okoshi Bio :: Toru "Tiger" Okoshi was born just outside of Osaka in 1950, the year of the Tiger. As a child he was devoted to painting. When he was 13, however, a friend took him to see Louis Armstrong, who was touring in Japan. "He hit me too strong," recalls Okoshi. He took up the trumpet and immersed himself in jazz. In 1972, after he graduated from the prestigious Kwansei Gakuin University with a bachelor of commerce, he married and came to the United States for his honeymoon. "We took Greyhound all the way across the country from Los Angeles to Boston," Okoshi recalls. "The beauty of it all gave me energy and fire. I knew I couldnt go back." When they arrived in Boston, they sold their return tickets, paid the tuition at Berklee College of Music and found a studio apartment. He started to practice by the Charles River, hoping someone would hear him and ask him to join a band - that happened. Okoshi graduated summa cum laude from Berklee in 1975. Word of his abilities spread and he began assembling a lengthy résumé. In 1974 he performed with the Mike Gibbs Orchestra at Carnegie Hall in New York; in 1975 he toured the United States with the Buddy Rich Orchestra; and from 1976 to 1978 he taught at Berklee. Okoshi has appeared in numerous jazz festivals around the world. His fusion group, "Tigers Baku" appeared on the cruise liner Queen Elizabeth 2 in August 1998 for the Newport Jazz Festival at Sea. Tiger is currently a Professor at the Berklee College of Music.

Trumpet Artist Brian Lynch - Day of Trumpets III

Thu, 15 Mar 2007 09:30:00 PDT

Born September 12, 1956 in Urbana, Illinois, Lynch grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he apprenticed on a high level with such local residents as pianist Buddy Montgomery and organist Melvin Rhyne, while earning a degree from the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music. Located in San Diego in 1980-81, he gained further valuable experience in the group of alto master Charles McPherson. Towards the end of 1981, Lynch moved to New York, and soon linked up with the Horace Silver Quintet (1982-1985) and the Toshiko Akiyoshi Jazz Orchestra (1982-1988). Simultaneously, he played and recorded on the Latin scene with salsa bandleader Angel Canales (1982-83) and legendary cantante Hector LaVoe (1983-87). He began his association with Eddie Palmieri in 1987, and at the end of 1988 joined what turned out to be the final edition of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. He began his association with Phil Woods in 1992, and also worked frequently with Benny Golson around this time. Seeking to share his knowledge with others and to keep in touch with the fundamentals of his art, Lynch has turned increasingly to teaching in recent years. He currently holds faculty positions at New York University and the North Netherlands Conservatory, has taught at the Stanford Jazz Workshop, and has conducted workshops in numerous major institutes of learning, including The Eastman School of Music, Dartmouth University, the University of North Texas, and Columbia University, among many others. Many of today's finest young jazz trumpeters call him a mentor. Brian is proud, but it works both ways: the interchange of ideas between he and the "youngbloods" challenges him to keep it real and keep practicing! The Brian Lynch/Eddie Palmieri Project recording, "Simpatíco" received a Grammy for Best Latin Jazz Album in 2006. Performing many of the tunes from that groundbreaking recording, let's join Brian and his all-star band for Part One of this exclusive concert from the Yamaha Day of Trumpets III event at Yamaha Artist Services, Inc. in New York.

Tom Brantley Clinic

Thu, 01 Nov 2007 14:00:00 PDT

Yamaha Trombone Artist and University of South Florida School of Music Professor Tom Brantley has released a new CD, titled Obsessed with Treasure, on the Bearclaw Records label. The CD has received praise from John Fleming of the St. Petersburg Times, who wrote: "Tom Brantley, a trombonist par excellence who teaches at the University of South Florida, teams with composer and percussionist David Gluck of the music faculty at SUNY-Purchase in an exhilarating mix of jazz and pop, rock and classical. In 12 superbly engineered tracks, the duo and a host of guest artists range from salsa (Obsessed with Treasure) to bossa nova (Painted Mermaid) to an infectious performance of rhythm and blues icon Johnny Otis' Cold Shot. Why we like it: You could call the Gluck-Brantley style surrealistic (after their Salvador Dali-inspired work Lobster Telephone) or just plain soulful, but whatever their sound is, it has the bracing slap of complete originality." During the 2007 International Trombone Festival, Tom presented a clinic about the project and the unique process involved with recording multiple tracks of trombones played by a single player. Visit www.kagarice.com to order "Obsessed With Treasure" online.

Steve Turre Clinic

Tue, 30 Dec 2008 08:30:00 PDT

One of the world's preeminent jazz innovators, trombonist and seashellist Steve Turre, has consistently won both the Readers' and Critics' polls in JazzTimes, Downbeat, and Jazziz for Best Trombone and for Best Miscellaneous Instrumentalist (shells). In addition to performing as a member of the Saturday Night Live Band since 1984, Turre leads several different ensembles. Sanctified Shells utilizes the seashell in a larger context, transforming his horn section into a 'shell choir'. Turre's Spring 1999 Verve release, Lotus Flower, showcases his Sextet With Strings. The recording explores many great standards and original compositions arranged by Turre for a unique instrumentation of trombone and shells, violin, cello, piano, bass and drums. Turre's quartet and quintet provide a setting based in tradition and stretching the limits conceptually and stylistically. In the Summer of 2000, Telarc released In The Spur of the Moment. This recording features Steve with three different quartets, each with a different and distinct master pianist: Ray Charles, Chucho Valdes, and Stephen Scott. Steve Turre continually evolves as a musician and arranger. He has a strong command of all musical genres and when it comes to his distinct brand of jazz, he always keeps one foot in the past and one in the future.

Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band Part 2

Fri, 25 Feb 2011 13:00:00 PDT

Even for a successful composer and arranger in Hollywood, Gordon's numbers are impressive: A 2006 Grammy Award for his Instrumental Arrangement of "Incredits" from the Pixar film "The Incredibles," three Emmy Awards, and eight Grammy nominations. Here's another impressive number to add to the list: Eighteen. As in the number of musicians in Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band, one of the most exciting large jazz ensembles on the planet. Populated by L.A.'s finest players, the Big Phat Band takes the big band tradition into the new millennium with a contemporary, highly original sound featuring Gordon's witty, intricate, and hard-swinging compositions in a veritable grab bag of styles: swing, Latin, blues, classical, rock and even an homage to Looney Tunes. Watch them perform live from Disneyland in this exclusive Yamaha Hub podcast episode. Want to Connect with Yamaha on the go?

Mindi Abair Concert Part 1

Mon, 28 Feb 2011 8:00:00 PDT

Mindi Abair was born in St. Petersburg, Florida and spent much of her early life on the road with her father's band, The Entertainers. Abair set sonic trends and broke all the boundaries as she defined the less traditional future of jazz. She infused acoustic guitar and pop/rock sensibilities of the day with saxophone, and created a genre all her own with pop vocals mixed with strong saxophone melodies and soul and rockrhythms. Jazz Week named "It Just Happens That Way" the number 1 most played Contemporary Jazz CD of 2003. Her 2004 follow-up disc Come As You Are — which dug into deeper emotional and stylistic territory while spawning two more hit singles "Come As You Are" and "Make A Wish"— kept the momentum jetting skyward. In 2006, her third Verve Records release "Life Less Ordinary" debuted number 1 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart and remained in the top 20 for 45 weeks. Her songs "True Blue" and "Bloom" hit number 1 on R&R. In 2008, Mindi signed to Concord Records and released her first 50/50 saxophone/vocal album "Stars". Abair's lively and aggressive, full-scale immersion in the pop/rock singer/songwriter world on Stars is not a departure, but rather a natural extension of the high profile success she's had with many of her previous vocal songs. Her 2010 Concord Records release "Mindi Abair in Hi Fi Stereo" is a collection of songs inspired from listening to her friends' old vinyl collections.
