Diane Schuur to Perform for South Florida JAZZ May 10, 2014

presents
Diane Schuur
With Love to Stan Getz & Frank Sinatra

Saturday, May 10, 2014 ~ 8pm

South Florida JAZZ presents jazz vocal legend, DIANE SCHUUR. With her all-star band, Ms. Schuur is making a rare South Florida appearance as she introduces music from her soon-to-be-released album recorded as a tribute to her principal mentors Stan Getz and Frank Sinatra.

SouthFlorida JAZZ, South Florida's premier modern jazz organization is thrilled to present The Diane Schuur Saturday, May 10, 2014, 8:00 PM. This concert will take place at the Rose and Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center on the Nova Southeastern University campus, 3100 Ray Ferrero, Jr. Blvd, Davie 33314. Tickets are $40 ($15 for students) and can be purchased from the Broward Center box office by calling 954.462.0222, option #4 in Broward; or online at southfloridajazz.org.

"Diane Schuur's voice is beautiful. She has a vocal range that can deliver low, laments and high crooning wails with equal effectiveness."   -  College Music Journal

Long-regarded as an artist who has seemingly walked a tightrope between jazz and pop, singer Diane Schuur makes no apologies for her unwavering commitment to the jazz tradition and its firm control on her artistic sensibilities despite forays into other genres. After all, she is still a hard-core disciple of the legendary jazz singers of the ‘40s and ‘50s, but most particularly Dinah Washington, who was her earliest influence.

Born and raised in the state of Washington, Ms. Schuur was blinded by circumstances of her premature birth, a recognized complication of neonatal care in the mid-20th century. Nicknamed “Deedles” as a child, Ms. Schuur discovered jazz very early via her pianist father and immersion in the family’s formidable collection of Duke Ellington and Dinah Washington records. Blessed with perfect pitch, she sang every early and also taught herself to play the piano. Those significant skills were honed over two years spent at the Washington State School for the Blind, making her career decision at an early age quite instinctual. She was, in fact, performing publicly by age ten.


By her late teens, Diane was getting opportunities to play with and for major figures in the jazz world, including a pivotal performance at the 1979 Monterey Jazz Festival that served as an introduction to Stan Getz, which led to a White House appearance and a GRP recording contract. With her career then officially launched, she garnered five Grammy® nominations and two Grammy® Awards including one for Diane Schuur and the Count Basie Orchestra. Ms. Schuur has a newly recorded homage to two of her most important mentors, Frank Sinatra and Stan Getz. It is titled I Remember You - With Love to Stan and Frank. This concert will feature repertoire from the CD formally to be released in June, but available to concertgoers on May 10th. It commemorates her "official" discovery 35 years ago by Stan Getz, as mentioned above. The recording and concert feature all new arrangements by her pianist and musical director, Alan Broadbent, leading an all-star band.

SEASON FINALE!
June 14, 2014 – CHRISTIAN MCBRIDE TRIO

Eldar Trio to Perform at Crest Theatre in Delray Beach May 23, 2014 - ONLY Florida Appearance this Season!

This is show is the ONLY Florida opportunity to 
see this great talent this season.
GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!

Marc Freeman Presents
The Eldar Djangirov Trio
Friday, May 23, 2014
Time: 8:00 PM

Crest Theatre at
51 N. Swinton Avenue
Delray Beach, Florida 33444

Box Office: 561-243-7922 X1

We are proud to present the ONLY Florida appearance this season by the internationally acclaimed virtuoso jazz pianist EldarDjangirov. He will be joined in this intimate concert performance space by his recording and touring band mates Armando Gola who played bass on Arturo Sandoval’s Grammy winning “Rumba Palace” and University of Miami graduate Ludwig Afonso (drums). This trio is well known to international jazz audiences from major festivals, concerts and recordings, including the 2013 album, “Breakthrough“ which was released to critical acclaim for its infectious array of standards and originals.  


Eldar is rightly compared to Art Tatum and Oscar Peterson, and is universally recognized for his stunning keyboard mastery and beautiful sound that has thrilled critics and audiences throughout the world. Dave Brubeck, among others, hailed him as a young genius. Like all great jazz musicians he has his own distinct voice. He is instantly recognizable; always surprising and satisfying whether playing the blues, a classic ballad or an original up-tempo composition. He is great in a jazz club but even better in a concert hall.

Born on January 28, 1987 in the former Soviet Union, Eldar began piano lessons at age 3 and it became quickly apparent that he possessed a special musical gift. At 10 years old the family moved to their new hometown of Kansas City, Missouri where he immediately gained the attention of the jazz community. At 12 he appeared as a featured guest on Marion McPartland's NPR Radio Show “Piano Jazz”. Two albums followed and at age 17 he signed as a Sony recording artist with albums that featured such greats as Roy Hargrove, Michael Brecker and Chris Botti.

Eldar has appeared at Jazz Festivals all over the world - the Hollywood Bowl, and Carnegie Hall to name a couple. He has been seen on national TV including the 2000 and 2008 Grammy Awards (of which he was a nominee), Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. The virtuoso pianist has also performed with the Russian National Orchestra and San Diego Symphony. A solo classical album, Bach/Brahms/Prokofiev, was recently released.

After the Crest Theatre performance the Trio travels to the Atlanta Jazz Festival on May 24th before returning to their international touring schedule.
