The return of the...(The Native? So what? Allen Kanovsky is a local EVERYWHERE!)

Submitted by Al Kanovsky 10/31/13

…"Snowbirds". It happens every year. The temps up North start to plummet. Limbs stiffen. Backs start to ache. They pack up get on a plane, train, bus or their own vehicle and head to warmer climes. The first to arrive are Deborah and Duane Crisp. They are just in time to catch Joe Donato's return to Blue Jeans BLUES. With Joe(alto/piccolo/mini) are Danny Burger(drums), Matt Bonelli(bass) and as Danny suggests, the man with two brains, Brian Murphy on piano. Prior to the Jazzmen taking the stage, vocalist Glenda Grainger entertains customers with a cabaret performance. The weather is mild and so I sit curbside where I can hear Glenda and read my current "crime" novel. She sings "La Vie En Rose" in French and I imagine I am a 'boulevardier' on the Champs De Lysee. Ms. Grainger runs through the "American Songbook" including "Rainbow" and "Stardust". Joe Donato fans start to fill the room including a fan from Canada, Jack of Ontario.

Danny introduces the band. Joe leads to the tune by quoting the Diz. "If there is no BLUES, there is no JAZZ" and the band swings into a Joe BLUES lyric "Blue Jean BLUES". Joe sings the words. If you regularly read what I write, you might remember my remarks about his vocalizations. At the break, recognizing improvement and being the smart-ass that I am I ask him if he has taken voice lessons. He answers, "No. Have you bought a hearing-aid?" I should have known not to ask a guy who wears red socks a wise guy question. During the opening tune Joe played that tiny sax. The tone that he generates with the instrument is amazing. They follow with "I Remember You". Donato employs be-bop phrasing, Brian swings it, Matt 'walks the dog'. Danny trades 4's with all using the brushes as only Danny can. They dedicate "Satin Doll" to Babette, a BJB's regular and JAZZ devotee. Joe employs both the mini and alto, sometimes simultaneously and managing to quote "Woody Woodpecker", "Cocktails For Two", Flight of the Bumble Bee" and  "St. Louis BLUES". Shades of Dolf. Brian's solo sounds a lot like the "Duke" himself. Joe is an eternal jokester. He intros the next tune as a Charlie Parker hit. The band plays "Tico-Tico". Sounds a lot more like Carmen Miranda and Xavier Cugat than the "Bird". He plays a little piccolo solo and steps off the stage to do some 'merengue' with Deborah. A beautiful rendition of "Send In the Clowns" and end the set with Deborah's request for "Back Home in Indiana". Danny's solo has Deborah asking me where do I set Danny in the ranks of JAZZ drummers. I make sure I don't rate musicians. Every performance by a JAZZ artist is distinct from any played before or will ever be played in the future. As I have often stated, I can tell what a JAZZ or BLUES musician had for breakfast, how their day was and even if they had an argument with their wife, girlfriend or club owner. Danny? No body has mastered playing with brushes as righteously as Danny boy. His innovation of "blowing up" the drum kit is exclusively his.

The 2d set opens with Coletrane's "Equinox Autumninal". Both Danny and Matt show-off a little and it is 'good listening'. Jackie Deering has joined us and I am hoping they will play something danceable. They do 2 'Lester' tunes back to back. Wayne Shorter's "Lester Left Town". Freddy Jacobs(trumpet) is on stage and be-bop is in the air. The next is "Lester Leaps In". Joe sings the lyric Jon Hendrix wrote to the melody. Part of the lyric reads, "Got the BLUES and I don't know how to lose them". Hey Joe, look at Jackie's smile, listen to her laugh or hold her hand for a moment. Instant cure. "I Didn't Know what Love Is" and then featuring Freddy on "Love For Sale". Jackie requests "S'Wonderful" and the band is in that 'groove' we all listen for. When the band does D&D's request for "Take 5" the couple take to the floor. I have never seen an attempt to dance to a '5' before. Deborah and Duane accept the challenge and conquer the complexities. 

The closing set opens with the 'jump' "C Jam BLUES" with a "Duke's Place" lyric sung by Joe with that vastly improved vocal tone. Brian displays the power of "2 brains" with an inspired two handed solo. His inspiration is in the form of his wife, Donna Blue, who is visible at the bar. Some visitors from the 'Continent" request "Europa" and the band complies. Jackie agrees to a request to dance with me. We awe  (or something like that) the remaining customers with our light-footed and light-hearted dancing. They choose "Desifinado" for the next tune. During Freddy's featured solo he quotes "A-Train" unexpectedly. The show closes with "You Came to Me" and "Rte. 66" Jackie and I 'lindy' our way through both. I love dancing with her. My doctor wants to know why I have this death wish. I thank the musicians for a great night. I kiss Jackie and Donna goodnight.

Hi Tracy. She's got Turk Mauro with Duffy Jackson playing "Canadian Sunset". It gets me home safe. Tonight is Halloween. I am in a quandary. Stay home and face hordes of runny-nose brats begging for candy or go out and face supposed grown-ups dressed up like ghouls, ghosts, pirates, witches, vampires, cowboys----"On and On, On and On, On and On"--------- begging for "Someone To Love"

Tomcat Blake | Garage Blues | Sat Nov 2,  8pm ($25-35)

Rock 'n' roll for your bluesy soul. Leaving Florida twenty years ago for a blues music career in Europe, Tomcat’s sound and style is unique but still solidly BLUES. Known for his particular guitar phrasing and percussive rhythm style, Blake learned the blues by direct transmission from one of the great pre-war bluesmen, Henry Townsend. Today, Tomcat prefers to write and record his own music in which he doesn’t hesitate to mix his countless influences: Blues, Country, Rockabilly, Soul… all with a European flavor. He is back from France and this is his only Florida east-coast show and it is one you don’t want to miss.

Vitalli Imereli | Jazz Project | Sat Nov 9, 8pm ($25-35)

Vitali Imereli's playing  is a true joy to experience.  He is a virtuoso in both classical and jazz genres and has performed at concert halls and festivals throughout Europe such as the Pori Jazz Festival in Finland and the North Sea Jazz Festival in The Netherlands.  Vitali  has performed with and gained the admiration of jazz greats such as Bucky Pizzarelli, Benny Golson, Larry Coryell, Olli Soikkeli, Howard Alden, James Carter and he is quickly been recognized by many as the world’s best gypsy jazz violinist.   A former Soviet Union expatriate, now living in Finland, Vitali’s talent was recognized at the young age of 5.  His early influences include the great Stephane Grappelli and the classical masters.  His playing is renowned for it’s energetic and lyrical style, beautiful phrasing, blistering technique, and his impeccable delivery.  “Europe’s #1 Jazz Violinist” begins his American tour here at the Arts Garage.  Come join us for this special engagement of this violin phenomenon that has taken Europe by storm.  

Joe Locke | Jazz Project | Tue Nov 12, 8pm ($25-35)

"Not only has he mastered an instrument that has catapulted only a handful of players to the forefront of modern jazz - but he has done so in a way that transcends mere technique and establishes him as a unique and adventurous musical voice."   San Francisco Bay Guardian

Award winning virtuoso vibraphonist Joe Locke is widely considered to be one of the major voices of his instrument.  Voted the #1 vibist in DownBeat Magazine's Critic's Poll and three time winner of the prestigious "Mallet Player of the Year" award from the Jazz Journalists Association, Joe has recorded and performed with a diverse range of notable musicians including Grover Washington Jr, Kenny Barron, Eddie Henderson, Cecil Taylor, Dianne Reeves, Ron Carter, and The Beastie Boys.  Joe’s creativity and energetic style never fail to captivate his audiences. "In the select group of contemporary vibes players, Locke has claims to head the list."

Joe Locke's masterclass will begin with an introduction and a look at his personal background and experiences as a musician.  The main body of the masterclass will be divided into two main sections:  the first half of the workshop will explore improvisation techniques and approaches;  the second half will be geared toward vibraphone and mallet instrument performance techniques.  This is a chance to gain some valuable insight directly from one of the top jazz musicians of our day. Afterwards there will be a question and answer period followed by an opportunity for autographs and photos.  Approximately 90 minutes

Larry Coryell | Jazz Project | Sat Nov 16, 8pm  ($25-45)

 “the Godfather of Fusion”  Down Beat Magazine.

“a true pioneer of rock-jazz fusion” New York Times

Larry Coryell is one of the world’s acknowledged guitar masters.  Hailed by his legion of fans as one of “the guitar gods” in the late 1970s,  With more than 70 albums to his credit, Larry has toured and recorded with elite musicians like Jack Bruce, Jimmy Webb, the 5th Dimension, Charles Mingus, Billy Cobham, Chick Corea, John McLaughlin, Randy and Michael Brecker to name a few.  Larry is a “true renaissance musician who excels at all styles of playing”.  His early influences were Chet Atkins, Chuck Berry, and Wes Montgomery but soon after arriving in New York City in 1965, Larry emerged as a profound music prophet who merged rock, jazz, eastern modes and scales, and free-form, improv-flashing classical riffs.  He quickly became one of the most in demand guitarists in rock, jazz, and all musical genres.  Larry has also published several highly regarded guitar books and videos and he continues to perform worldwide.  Don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of the true masters of guitar.

Singer-songwriter Bell plays guitar, ukulele and piano and is the front man and bandleader of the all-American, all original Bellevue Cadillac, whose sound is a unique blend that Rolling Stone coined "Jazz, gospel, blues and soul, swing on top of rock & roll."
Bellevue's music has appeared in major motion pictures like Me, Myself and Irene, Shallow Hal, and Delta Rising along with TV shows The Sopranos, Ed, and Sex and the City. To date, Bellevue Cadillac has collaborated with Duke Ellington, Sammy Davis Jr., Ray Charles, James Brown, and Tito Puente. The group has appeared in cover stories in Rolling Stone, Jazziz, Blues Review, and People magazines.

CNN Hails Bellevue Cadillac as "... the band to watch ... one day you may see these guys in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame"- CNN

"If you could have anyone in the world play at your wedding who would it be? Tony Bennett, Billy Joel, Elton John, well JFK Jr. chose this band.... Bellevue Cadillac and now we see why...."- People Magazine

“Bellevue Cadillac proves that you don't need record company support to create national attention and recognition. They've toured nationally and internationally, had their music in television shows, and major motion pictures.... the baby boomer band that could and still can!”- Billboard

"Equally gifted as a player and a singer, and doing both with no-holds-power, Stritch is not afraid to dazzle!" -- London Times

Terry’s dynamic career has enabled him to appear with such talented players as Tommy Dorsey Orchestra (Buddy Morrow), Bob Haggert, Milt Hinton, Butch Miles, Warren Vache', Kenny Davern, Marty Grosz, Major Holly, Mousey Alexander, Flip Phillips, Walt Lavinsky, Bill Allred, John Allred, Wild Bill Davison, Chubby Jackson, Duffy Jackson, Rosemary Clooney, Eddie Higgins, Bobby Rosengarten, Larry Elgart, Vince Giordano, and a host of others.

Singer, songwriter, musician, producer, publisher…all distinct descriptions that fit a unique piece of this puzzle. When completely assembled, the one that emerges is of a delightful, born and bred in the San Francisco Bay Area, madcap redhead who sees the world at large with laser perception and a funny tilt.

November 22, 2013, Friday 8:30pm - 12pm
November 23, 2013, Saturday 8pm - 12pm
With a colorful career that spans five decades, the legendary Kenny Cohen has been a viable force on the music scene.  Kenny is a veteran musician, vocalist, and entertainer.  He fronts his own groups, sings, plays tenor, alto and soprano saxophones, and flute.  He has performed locally and internationally with an impressive list of award winning recording artists.
