Helen Sung: Sung with Words

January 19, 2019         8 PM

Location:  Vermont Jazz Center, 72 Cotton Mill Hill, Brattleboro, VT

This concert is a live presentation of a project funded by a 2014 Chamber Music America New Works Grant. It presents a collection of songs composed and arranged for eight musicians by pianist Helen Sung to the poetry of the former chairman of the National Endowment of the Arts and current California Poet Laureate, Dana Gioia. When Sung described her feelings about missing the meaning of poetry, Gioa (who has also collaborated with Dave Brubeck and Paquito D'Rivera) replied: "Poetry is meant to be read out lout, it's musical: listen to the rhythm of the words, the sounds - and the meaning will come." Together they created a jazz song cycle that "has New York City in the air". Sung assembled an ensemble of world class vocalists and instrumentalists, including renowned trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, to, according to Sung, "explore themes of the human condition - love, betrayal, wonder, mystery - bringing together the musical and literary worlds in a thrilling experience".  www.vtjazz.org

Cloud Nine Nuptials

February 14, 2019

Location:  Mt. Snow, W. Dover, VT

Celebrate Valentine’s Day at Mount Snow in the most romantic way possible: renew your vows or get married on the mountain at the top of Cloud Nine on Thursday, February 14.

We will start the morning with a lift ride up the Sunbrook Quad at 9:45 am.  We recommend loading the Bluebird Express lift no later than 9:20 am for a ride to the summit, and then skiing down "Thanks Walt" to the bottom of Sunbrook.

If you are running a few minutes late, don't worry!  Just head up the Bluebird Express and go directly to the top of the Sunbrook Quad/top of "Cloud Nine" ski trail and meet us there. The ceremony will begin as promptly as possible at 10:15 am.

Please understand that we will have a good number of couples involved and while we hope for a beautiful bluebird day, Mother Nature is not necessarily on our side - for this reason we cannot delay the ceremony, so please plan accordingly and give yourselves plenty of time in the morning.  You can always take an extra run if early!

We'll conclude by taking a run down "Cloud Nine" and then meet us back up top inside the Summit Lodge at The Bullwheel for cake & coffee.

If you would like to get married legally, you will just need to provide the Justice of the Peace with the proper paperwork for her to sign and make the matrimony official.  www.mountsnow.com

Russell Malone Quartet

March 16, 2019         8 PM

Location:  Vermont Jazz Center, 72 Cotton Mill Hill, Brattleboro, VT

The New York Times has called Malone "a guitarist of taste and tradition." As a young man, Malone toured with several artists fitting that mold including Nat King Cole's brother, Freddie Cole, Harry Connick Jr. and Diana Krall. But Malone is a guitarist's guitarist who has elevated the creativity of the bebop line to a sublime art-form. In response to listening to Malone during a Downbeat Blindfold Test, guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel responded by noting "Obviously, we are in the capable hands of a master. Absolutely fluid touch and beautiful integration between moving lines and harmonic cadences... to play this stuff is extremely hard. This is an absolute master, the best of the best." Malone developed his sound to match the soul-drenched guitar sound common to his home state of Georgia before moving to New York where he honed his own, completely personal style. Malone is now one of the leading guitarists on the scene today, a mature and revered master. Perhaps he is best known more for his recorded work accompanying other jazz greats like Kenny Barron, Ron Carter or Jimmy Smith, but Malone has fourteen albums out as a leader of his own collaborations.  www.vtjazz.org

Pedrito Martinez and Alfredo Rodriguez Duo

May 18, 2019             8 PM

Location:  Vermont Jazz Center, 72 Cotton Mill Hill, Brattleboro, VT

Two of Cuba's greatest young musical masters will come together in an incendiary duo performance. Pedrito Martínez (b. 1973) is the winner of the Thelonious Monk competition in percussion and Alfredo Rodriguez (b. 1985) has quickly emerged as one of the finest Cuban jazz pianists after being "discovered" by legendary producer Quincy Jones. Martínez' fame spread initially due to his work with the folkloric ensemble, Los Muñequitos de Matanzas, which led to work with Jane Bunnett's Spirit of Havana in 1998. Since then he has become one of the most highly regarded Afro-Cuban percussionists in the world. Pianist Rodriguez attended three music conservatories in Cuba, winning classical piano competitions in each. After performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2016, he was invited by Quincy Jones to collaborate on a project that was presented at the Shanghai World Expo. These two Grammy-nominated artists first worked together on Rodriquez' 2012 release Invasion Parade. Since that initial session they have had the rare arrangement of performing together as a duo, leaving audiences completely mesmerized by their fearless and virtuosic playing.  www.vtjazz.org

Sheila Jordan with Cameron Brown, Eugene Uman and Friends

June 1, 2019           8 PM

Location:  Vermont Jazz Center, 72 Cotton Mill Hill, Brattleboro, VT

This concert celebrates NEA Jazz Master Sheila Jordan in her 90th year. It serves as an expression of gratitude to Jordan for her loving and generous 20-plus year involvement in our community as a mentor and performer. VJC director, Eugene Uman usually performs on this date with his Convergence Project. This concert is a golden opportunity to join forces with one of the vocal legends of our time in its stead. We will also welcome Jordan's muse, bassist Cameron Brown, and other friends (TBA) to enhance the festivities.

In her autobiography "Jazz Child, a Portrait of Sheila Jordan," Jordan tells of how the legendary saxophonist Charlie Parker "gave me courage by telling me I was unique in my sound and that I had million-dollar ears." Her 1963 debut on Blue Note Records, Portrait of Sheila, is considered a jazz classic. Since then she has recorded over 22 albums as a leader and appeared as a guest soloist on hundreds of others. Along with the NEA Jazz Master Award, Jordan has received an IAJE Humanitarian Award, a Mary Lou Williams' Women in Jazz Lifetime of Service Award and many others. Sheila has taught thousands of students around the world, helping them to realize their potential, and encourages us all to savor and delight in the immensity and swinging depth of jazz music.  www.vtjazz.org
