After Hours with Andy Voelker

Friday October 20th

Andy Voelker, tenor saxophone

Saxophonist improviser and composer Andy Voelker has been aptly called a ”Lifer” in the world of jazz. His dedication to the roots of jazz, the real time application of past and present jazz styles, and the furthering of jazz as an art form remain Andy’s top priorities. Having grown up on the New Jersey shore surrounded by a family full of music lovers, artists, and writers Andy developed early appreciation for what is “good music”.          

Andy took up the saxophone in grade school band and never looked back. Moving to Boston to attend Berklee College of music, Andy stayed in Boston and continued his education on the bandstand. Andy was a pivotal member of the Matt Murphy’s Music in Brookline having both co-lead the weekly jam session and lead his own original groups at Matts - during the hay day of one of Boston’s most notable music scenes. Presently Andy is playing and recording with Clear Audience – a group he co-leads with his cohorts from the Murphy’s days. Andy is staying busy as one of Boston’s real deal jazz Saxophonists, hard at work performing around the greater Boston areas music venues brining his forward thinking, soulful sound, and thoughtful improvisations to the present day music appreciators.

Dominique Eade Trio

Thursday October 26th

Dominique Eade, vocals

Tim Ray, piano

John Lockwood, acoustic bass 

"Eade's vocal control and imagination are peerless," says the Boston Phoenix. "She's one of the few imaginative artists to have emerged in the field of jazz singing in this decade," says New York Newsday of vocalist Dominique Eade. Peter Watrous of the New York Times praises her "...immensely appealing sound..." and in a New York Times review of a recent performance, Ben Ratliff writes that Eade "had absorbed some of Sarah Vaughan's fearsome technique" Her voice was rich and clear and strong in all ranges; she had musicianship and cool intelligence and didn't seem to be ahistorical or to have arrived at jazz by accident." David Hajdu wrote in the New York Times Magazine, "I already knew who the Next Thing in jazz singing would be: Dominique Eade. An impossibly versatile vocalist, composer, lyricist and instrumental arranger..." 

Entertainment Weekly named Eade Best Jazz Singer in their article on up-and-coming artists of 1996. The 1998 First Annual Jazz Awards in NYC nominated Eade for Best Debut Artist. She was voted in the top ten for Best Jazz Singer, and TDWR categories in the 1999 Downbeat Critics' Poll, and TDWR in the1998 Downbeat Critics' poll. She has been nominated five times for Best Jazz Vocalist in the Boston Music Awards and was voted Best Jazz Vocalist in 1996 and 1999. Eade was nominated for Best Jazz in Boston in the 2001 boston.citysearch.com. Signed to RCA Victor in 1996, Eade has been a featured performer in festivals including the Porto Jazz Festival in Portugal, The Bell Atlantic Jazz Festival's "Diva's of Jazz" concert with Terri Thornton and Abbey Lincoln (NYC), the Toulon Jazz Festival in France, the Molde International Jazz Festival in Norway, The Knitting Factory's "What is Jazz?" Festival, the Iowa City Jazz Festival, the Litchfield CT Jazz Festival and many Boston Globe and Regatta Bar Jazz Festivals in Boston. In 1994 she was an artist-in-residence at the Wichita Jazz Festival, and she has been a clinician and performer throughout the United States and Europe.

"IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS . . . ONE OF THE BEST YOUNG JAZZ SINGERS IN THE COUNTRY TODAY. SHE'S THE REAL MCCOY." 

- TONY BENNETT

Donna has been invited by none other than Tony Bennett to open several of his shows both in the U.S. and abroad

Brian Friedland Trio

Wednesday November 1st

Brian Friedland, piano

Greg Loughman, acoustic bass

Austin McMahon, drums

Composer/pianist Brian Friedland's relentless creative spirit is quickly evident from his frequent participation in Boston’s creative music scene, repertoire from diverse strands of jazz traditions, and prolific output as a composer. Performing and writing for a wide variety of ensembles, his projects reflect his love of many kinds of music and his commitment finding new ways to create. His hundreds of compositions include a large collection of big band charts, an orchestral composition, dozens of chamber works, and music for jazz ensembles of many aesthetics and sizes. Grammy nominated composer, USC faculty member, and musical collaborator Kim Richmond describes Friedland's music as "not only professional quality material, but inspirationally crafted, an excellent and interesting mix of art works.”

Friedland’s skills have earned him a spot in many Boston bands and touring ensembles. He is currently a member of seven active bands, led by some of Boston’s most talented musicians. Friedland toured extensively in 2007 with the Glenn Miller Orchestra and played in several states with the internationally renowned vocalists of Il Divo. Friedland has also recorded on numerous albums and received critical praise. Regarding saxophonist Alexei Zoubov's 2007 release "Rejuvenation," jazz critic Scott Yanow wrote, "Friedland contributes lyrical solos that would not be out of place on a Keith Jarrett record."
