Reeds & Deeds is a celebration of the music of American jazz multi-instrumentalist Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Renowned for his onstage vitality, during which virtuoso improvisation was accompanied by comic banter, political ranting, and the ability to play several instruments, Kirk inspired many musicians in the US and The Netherlands.

Kirk wrote numerous beautiful compositions, such as "The Inflated Tear", "A Laugh for Rory", "Many Blessings", "Vertigo", "Limbo Boat" and "Gifts and Messages".
Frans Vermeerssen did a whole project around Kirk's music back in 1995, resulting in his quintet's famous album One for Rahsaan. Austin Jazz Workshop's season on Kirk featured Alex Coke
performing live and recording the album Mystery Note. For this date, Coke, together with fellow reed
player Bo van de Graaf, assembled an all-star band wihich includes a stellar rhythm section that features bassist Arjen Gorter, drummer Makki van Engelen, and pianist Michiel Braam.
The Reeds & Deeds project refers to an 1963 album recorded by Kirk. The sextet features

Alex Coke- tenorsax and flute
Frans Vermeerssen- tenor and sopranosax
Bo van de Graaf- soprano, alto and tenorsax
Michiel Braam- piano
Arjen Gorter- double bass

and
Makki van Engelen drums

''WHITE BOARD'' Afrocuban Jazz Music

Next Station is the album that the Cuban jazz saxophonist and pianist Rafael Garcés just released. Follower of the work of John Coltrane and the cubop created by New York musicians Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Machito, Mario Bauza, Garcés brings us an impeccable work, with its own nuances but akin to modern jazz tradition that thrives on this occasion with accents of Afro-Cuban, blues and flamenco music.
For this occasion, Garcés has surrounded himself with a group of high-quality musicians, including which we can highlight the presence of a special guest, Ignacio Berroa, one of the drummers with the most influence in jazz today.

Olivier Bogé - When Ghosts Were Young
 Après «The World Begins Today » enregistré à New York avec Tigran Hamasyan, et « Expanded Places » largement salué par les médias, Olivier Bogé présente son nouvel opus. Animé par un amour sans limite de la mélodie, ce musicien singulier use de ses capacités de multi-instrumentiste (pianiste de formation classique, c’est un saxophoniste de jazz reconnu qui joue aussi de la guitare acoustique) pour mieux sonder ses univers intérieurs. S’affirmant disque après disque comme créateur de mondes où les frontières entre jazz, folk, rock et classique s’effacent, il présente « When Ghosts Were Young », une ode à l’innocence de l’enfance qui fait resurgir ces fantômes, ces âmes intérieures préservées au fond de chacun d’entre nous et ranime leur capacité d’émerveillement par le pouvoir expressif de la musique. Un disque lumineux et lyrique, à fleur de peau, comme son auteur. Avec Pierre Perchaud (guitare), Tony Paeleman (piano), Nicolas Moreaux (contrebasse), Karl Jannuska (batterie) et Isabel Sörling (voix) sur un titre.

Following to «The World Begins Today" recorded in New York with Tigran Hamasyan, and "Expanded Places" widely acclaimed by the media, Olivier Bogé presents his new opus. Animated by an unlimited love of melody, this singular musician uses his capacities as a multi-instrumentalist (classical pianist, a renowned jazz saxophonist who also plays acoustic guitar) to better explore his inner universes. Being, step by step, a creator of worlds where the boundaries between jazz, folk, rock and classical fade, Olivier presents "When Ghosts Were Young," an ode to the innocence of childhood that makes these ghosts reappear, these inner souls preserved at the bottom of each one of us and revives their capacity of wonder by the expressive power of music. A luminous and lyrical disc, like its author. With Pierre Perchaud (guitar), Tony Paeleman (piano), Nicolas Moreaux (double bass), Karl Jannuska (drums) and Isabel Sörling (voice) on one track.

Stephane Belmondo joue Philippe Sarde
C'est en écoutant la version de "La Chanson d'Hélène"  (les Choses de la Vie) de Stephane Belmondo dans le "Love for Chet" que Philippe Sarde, le célèbre compositeur de Musiques de Films a souhaité rencontrer cet interprète qui l'avait ému. Philippe Sarde, c'est 50 ans de compositions exceptionnelles pour le cinéma Français (Claude Sautet, Pierre Granier-Defferre, Roger Vadim, Georges Lautner, Bertrand Tavernier, Yves Boisset, André Téchinet, Jacques Doillon, Alexandre Arcady, et bien d'autres encore) et 11 Nominations et Victoires au César de la Musique. Et c'est tout naturellement qu'une amitié sincère est né entre les deux artistes et que ce projet s'est dessiné, un hommage à quatre mains, entre le maître et l'élève, le compositeur et l'interprète, ce qui est rare et précieux quand la transmission et le partage sont si spontanés et désirés par chacun des protagonistes. Cette rencontre donnera lieu prochainement à un enregistrement discographique et une tournée exceptionnelle de concerts. Le Jazz, le Cinéma, les Belles Images, l'émotion seront au rendez-vous.

Philippe Sarde, one of the most versatile and talented French Film composer of his generation was deeply moved while listening to "La Chanson d'Hélène" (Les Choses de la Vie), his composition, interpreted by Stephane Belmondo, in the album « Love for Chet ».  So touched that he wished to meet Stephane. A sincere friendship was born between the two artists then, and they naturally decided to create a project together, a tribute to Philippe’s music (50 years of Film Composition for the most important Movies) a four hands, between the master and his fan, the composer and the interpreter, which is rare and valuable when transmission and sharing are so spontaneous and very desired by each of the protagonists. There will be soon a recording and concerts, Jazz, Movie, Beautiful Images, no doubt the emotion will be at his peak.

USA: The String Trio of New York on Friday, October 20th 7:30pm Morrison Hall Mansion Middletown, NY campus of SUNY Orange

Three-time NYFA Fellow, James Emery, will play in concert with the ensemble that he co-founded, the String Trio of New York on Friday, October 20, 2017 at 7:30pm. The performance will take place in the Grand Hall of Morrison Hall Mansion on the Middletown campus of SUNY Orange. This event is another in the series on both campuses recognizing New York Foundation of the Arts thirty years of honoring artists.
The Mid-Hudson is the first region of SUNY colleges and universities to schedule events.

The String Trio of New York is the main vehicle through which Emery plays his compositions for which he was awarded New York Foundation of the Arts grants and fellowships. James Emery plays his handcrafted guitar eloquently and with “staggering technical virtuosity,” as quoted in All About Jazz.  He has been acclaimed as "one of the world’s finest guitarists as [he] possesses an encyclopedic jazz vocabulary as a technician and composer.” In addition, Emery has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Cary Trust. As a composer, he writes pieces for chamber groups, jazz ensembles, solo guitar, chamber orchestra, and symphony orchestra. In addition to working with many private students, Emery is an adjunct who teaches the jazz ensemble at SUNY Orange.

Violinist Rob Thomas, who is a Berklee College of Music (Boston) professor, is a highly regarded jazz multi-instrumentalist, fluent on violin, cello, and bass. He has held the violin chair of the String Trio of New York since 2001. JazzTimes calls him “a violinist of exceptional creative resources... riveting as a solo voice with a rich complex tone.”

Bassist Tony Marino tours internationally with the Dave Liebman Big Band. His versatility and wide range of musicality has afforded him opportunities to accompany and record with numerous artists from folk to pop. He is a gifted player who plays both acoustic and electric bass.

In addition, the three musicians will give a master class -- The String's the Thing--
the same day, October 20 at 11am in Orange Hall Room 23. This session is free and open to the public, and gives attendees time to ask questions and listen to each musician explain and demonstrate his instrument. Orange Hall is located at 24 Grandview Avenue, Middletown.

Tickets to the concert will be available at the door only the evening of the performance.  The Box Office table and exterior doors open at 6:45 PM. Admission: $15 adults;
$10 senior citizens, faculty, staff, alumni; free for all students.

Morrison Hall Mansion is located at 115 South St on the Middletown campus of SUNY Orange. Free parking is available across the street.

TUNISIA: Anouar Brahem- Blue Maqams (ECM 2017)

Released on the occasion of Anouar Brahems 60th birthday, Blue Maqams offers many reasons to celebrate. Recorded in New Yorks Avatar Studios in May 2017 and produced by Manfred Eicher, it brings the Tunisian oud master together with three brilliant improvisers: the Maqams of the title refers to the Arabic modal music system, rendered kind of blue by the jazz players. For Anouar Brahem and Dave Holland the album marks a reunion: they first collaborated 20 years ago on the very widely-acclaimed Thimar album. Brahem meets Jack DeJohnette for the first time here, but Holland and DeJohnette have been frequent musical partners over the last half-century beginning with ground-breaking work with Miles Davis their collaborations are legendary. British pianist Django Bates also rises superbly to the challenge of Brahems compositions. And Anouar in turn is inspired to some of his most outgoing playing.
