Winner of the 2015 Downbeat Readers Poll and 2016 Downbeat Critics Poll for Baritone Saxophonist of the Year, Gary Smulyan is recognized as the major voice on the baritone saxophone. His playing is marked by an aggressive rhythmic sense, an intelligent and creative harmonic approach -- and perhaps most importantly – a strong and incisive wit. Smulyan carries on the rich tradition of the jazz organ quartet, first explored by jazz heavyweights such as Fats Waller and Count Basie in the 1920s, with his own jazz organ quartet featuring jazz guitarist Peter Bernstein, organist Mike LeDonne and drummer Joe Farnsworth.

Willie Jones III (WJ3) Jazz Sextet
With an unparalleled style of rhythmic expression, Willie Jones III is one of the world's leading jazz drummers. Jones brings together five of his gifted, world-renowned friends to form an all-star jazz sextet....WJ3 All-Stars.

Tenor saxophonist, Jeff Rupert has been a featured soloist on dozens of recordings with artists like Maynard Ferguson, Sam Rivers, Mel Tormé, Diane Schuur and Benny Carter.  He has performed at festivals and venues around the world. The Rupert Group blends jazz excellence with the vocal mastery of 22 year-old jazz singing phenom and runner up in the 2015 prestigious Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition, Veronica Swift, along with piano accompaniment from highly acclaimed, Richard Drexler. Marty Morell on drums and Ben Kramer on bass round out the group.

The Bill Cunliffe Trio
Jazz pianist, composer and Grammy-winning arranger Bill Cunliffe is known for his swinging and lyrical pianism.  He performs around the world as a leader and sideman as well as a soloist with symphony orchestras.  In the Bill Cunliffe Trio, Cunliffe teams with bassist, Martin Wind, and drummer, Tim Horner, to create a piano-driven exposé of some of the most popular Jazz music today.

April is Jazz Appreciation Month and Miami Celebrates with Concert in Honor of Ella Fitzgerald's 100th Birthday

Celebrate the extraordinary 
heritage and history of 
jazz music in April.
Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM) was created by the National Museum of American History in 2002 to herald and celebrate the extraordinary heritage and history of jazz for the entire month of April.

JAM is intended to stimulate and encourage people of all ages to participate in jazz - to study the music, attend concerts, listen to jazz on radio and recordings, read books about jazz, and more.

Jazz Appreciation Month 2017: 
Women in Jazz - Featured Musician: Ella Fitzgerald

This year, being the centennial of jazz icon Ella Fitzgerald, JAM 2017 will celebrate women in jazz. Beyond the traditional female vocalist, there are also many great composers, arrangers, orchestrators, and instrumentalists who have and continue to leave an indelible print on the history and future of jazz.

Ella Fitzgerald (1917-1996) was one of the greatest American singers in any genre of music.  She had a warm and lovely voice, superb rhythmic sense, considerable versatility, a great range (three and a half octaves), meticulous intonation, and improvisatory gifts as a fine natural melodist.  With an unparalleled ability for mimicry and “scat” singing, Fitzgerald also produced melodic lines that put her in the category of great instrumental improvisers.  Known as a singer’s singer, she recorded some two thousand songs in her lifetime.

Partake of this truly American celebration by attending the Miami Jazz Cooperative's concert at Pinecrest Gardens on Tuesday, April 25 when over 30 of Miami's finest jazz musician gather to perform in honor of Ella's 100th birthday!

Details on this show HERE.
