New Music Monday
Enjoy the New Music Monday highlights debuting on Monday, October 10, on Lunchtime! with Arturo Gómez.
Emmet Cohen: “Uptown In Orbit”
For his latest recording, Emmet expands his trio to include alto sax from Patrick Bartley and trumpet by Sean Jones on five of the 11 tracks on this sizzling project, his longtime collaborators Russell Hall-bass and Kyle Poole-drums are present. As with his previous sessions, Cohen serves up a variety of styles to ensure there’s no repetition and to always remain highly entertaining. The title refers to Emmet’s apartment in Harlem where during the pandemic he was playing to audiences around the world via Zoom which resulted in millions of views and guest appearances by renowned musicians of NYC.
Eliane Elias: “quietude”
The multi-Grammy® winning Brazilian pianist and songstress returned to her hometown of São Paulo, Brazil to return to her roots, the bossa nova. This time out her piano playing takes a back seat to her singing the tunes she grew up with from some of the best Brazilian composers like Dorival Caymmi, Vinicius de Moraes and naturally, Antonio Carlos Jobim among others. Moreover, Eliane chose to record with músicos brasileiros with one exception, her husband Marc Johnson the bassist. As with her other recordings, she is sure to tour the US in support of her album which means it won’t be long before she is back at Dazzle.
The Scott Whitfield Jazz Orchestra West: “Postcards from Hollywood”
The veteran trombonist, bandleader, vocalist, educator, and arranger, Professor Scot Whitfield is internationally recognized as being superlative in every field of endeavor he’s involved with. Growing up on Long Island, Scott was always attracted to the music of the movies he saw on the silver screen. When he moved to Southern California in the early 2000s, he planned on recording an album of themes from his favorite themes and 20 years later it has come to fruition. Scott needed little convincement to get the top of the musicians from Los Angeles to join him in this stunning new recording of movie music sure to please the ears of its listeners and perhaps prompt one to see the movies being honored again.
