Return of the John Payne Sax Choir

Return of the John Payne Sax Choir
John Payne Music Center Saxophone Choir

Sets at 8 pm & 9:30 pm


(Cambridge, MA 02139)  John Payne Quartet joined by the "Born Again" 35-member John Payne Music Center Saxophone Choir, under the direction of Duncan Martin.  Tuesday, May 3rd, sets at 8 pm & 9:30 pm.  Tickets: $10.  Ryles Jazz Club, 212 Hampshire St., Cambridge.  For advance tickets and information: 617-876-9330 or www.ryles.com.

For one night only, the John Payne Music Center (JPMC) Saxophone Choir will rise up and be "Born Again," participating in this year's Greater Boston's Jazz Week '11.  The Sax Choir, led by arranger, conductor, and sax mentor Duncan Martin, will provide the accompanying soundscape for JPMC's founder John Payne (on soprano, alto, and tenor sax) and his Quartet, with Adam Feldman on piano, Peter Tillotson on bass, and Rick Klane on drums.

The last time the Sax Choir graced  Boston-area clubs was in November 2006.  Before then, from September 1980 on, the Sax Choir had been very active, making five TV appearances and performing regularly at various venues around town, including Regattabar, Scullers, the old Oxford Ale House, the old Tam O' Shanter, and Ryles Jazz Club.  During that stretch of time, the Sax Choir rubbed elbows with the likes of Livingston Taylor, Aretha Franklin, and on two occasions with soon-to-be-elected President Bill Clinton, who even sat in with them in 1992, when they performed at a Democratic fundraiser at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel.

The Sax Choir is made up of alums and the current student body at the John Payne Music Center (JPMC).  Highly acclaimed sax player John Payne founded this music center, based in Brookline MA, because he firmly believed in the importance of providing competent, caring musical instruction to students of all ages with the clear intention of not only increasing musical ability but also maximizing musical enjoyment.  JPMC has been going strong since the early 80's, with many students evolving into professional musicians.

For the "Born Again" concert to be held during this year's Jazz Week, the Sax Choir will be providing support to soloist John Payne and his Quartet, who will be performing works by Phil Woods, Victor Feldman, Mike Mainieri, Stevie Wonder, and Harold Mabern. They will also perform two original tunes: "Gringo Salso" by John Payne and "Silver Lining" by Duncan Martin as well as Martin's lush arrangement of the spiritual "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen."  The choir will include the following 35 players:

Alto 1 section:
Asa Ericsdotter, Miriam Hyman, Emma MacAllister, Laurie Mass, Sandra Pilotto, Robert Saper, Eleanor Shavell, Janelle Slobodkin;

Alto 2 section:
Jill Altshuler (mother of section mate Zack Altshuler), Zack Altshuler (son of section mate Jill Altshuler), Rebecca Bradeen, Tim Brenner, Jason Chari, Amandine Crespy, Paul Foisy, Daniel Gorton, Nancy Gutmann, Richard Winter, Thomas Wucherpfennig;

Tenor 1 section:
Ron Brunelle, John Clippinger, Joe Moynihan, Martha Osler, Marianne Rooney;
Tenor 2 section:
Chip Benson, Jeffrey Berstein, Harvey Cox, Heather Hermann, John Mruk, Ed Musman, Bob Tumposky, Lynn Tibbetts;

Baritone section:
John Fierke, Dennis Hart, Noam Levine.

Bruce Bartlett Trio

Bruce Bartlett Trio

The streets are paved with guitar players in this age-old town. You can see them as you walk around -- their tuning pegs and whammy bars sticking up through the pavement, their hands frozen in the shape of a Jimmy Page lick. The ones left standing tend to be pretty good. And then there's Bruce Bartlett. It's no exaggeration to say that Bruce is a pillar of jazz-funk-blues guitar culture in this intensely jazzy, funky, bluesy place.

Greg Hopkins & Friends - 65 Years

Greg Hopkins & Friends - 65 Years
This mini big band is homage to three brilliant jazz nonets from the past and more. With a repertoire that includes several original arrangements from the influential "Birth of the Cool recordings, this band might appear to be a mere recreation of the Davis nonet. Yet that legendary unit of the late '40s is only one of the models that have inspired this new unit. Also identified are two Blue Note albums from the late '60s, McCoy Tyner's "Tender Moments and Herbie Hancock's "The Prisoner, as specific inspirations.
With that historic nod in mind, jazz composer and arranger Greg Hopkins has created yet another body of works for the same instrumentation in his own unique and original voice.

The tight knit 9-piece unit boasts some of the best jazz talent anywhere. Hopkins, long time Professor of Jazz Composition at Berklee College, was soloist/arranger for the Buddy Rich Band 1972-1974, before settling in this area.

Alongside Hopkins, other luminaries in the group are: pianist Tim Ray, drummer Bob Gullotti, bassist Keala Kaumeheiwa, trombonist Jeff Galindo, French hornist Ken Pope, tubist Greg Fritze, and saxophonists Shannon LeClaire and Dino Govoni.

Bob Blumenthal
from The Boston Globe writes:"Greg Hopkins, the inspired trumpeter/composer is one of Boston's unappreciated jazz treasures."

No Static

No Static
Musical dedication is what made Steely Dan such a great band. And No Static follows in that tradition. They craft the songs beautifully, but also warmly bring their own personalities to the sound. Using multiple singers gives a different touch -- and yet they're all on the same page when it comes to paying deep and impressive homage to one of rock's greatest, most intelligent groups. See No Static if you can -- and prepare to enjoy yourself.

Jordan Valentine & The Sunday Saints

Jordan Valentine & The Sunday Saints
Sopped in the backbeats of New Orleans R&B and southern funky soul, award-winning vocalist Jordan Valentine and her band The Sunday Saints burn up the stage with a horn-stoked 60s soul barnburner. Evoking the likes of Ike & Tina, The Meters, Lyn Collins, and Booker T, they bring a drum-tight, sharp-dressed soul review to the stage, fueled by future-classic originals and rare gems. As the Boston Phoenix wrote, "Valentine& is a veteran of the Bucket of Blood circuit, where five or six sets of hard entertainment is what keeps bikers and other bar beasts from peeling each others' skins off, and a good singer needs to be able to hold and bend a note in a firestorm of sound - just like she does." The Saints' show is part revivalist meeting, part Saturday night sin, and all soul satisfaction.

SHOWTIME*: 8:30, opening band 7:30

"Playing in nearly every possible type of band from jazz, to rock, R&B, and show music for the past 30 years has given Boston area bass player Mark Snyder a pretty broad spectrum of musical experience to choose from. He draws from all of that with his band The Mark Snyder Quartet, a groovy combo of rocking guitars, drums, sax, and flute that digs deep into old standards, modern jazz classics, and funky originals..." - The Boston Globe
